“There are no winners, only survivors.”
Those haunting words, spoken by a former “Hunger Games” victor, sum up the sobering truth about the games. In a post-apocalyptic North American society, teenagers — known as “tributes” — are forced to fight in a yearly televised death match as punishment for the society’s failed rebellion years ago. The last tribute standing has to pay a high price for his or her victory: a lifetime of lingering trauma, guilt and isolation.
That’s the kind of fallout Katniss Everdeen is facing. In the first “Hunger Games” movie, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the other tribute from her district, Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), managed to beat the system by pretending to be “star-crossed lovers” and convincing the gamemakers to change the rules and allow them to be named joint victors. However, their act of defiance has begun to fan the flames of rebellion in the districts of Panem, and Panem’s President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is beginning to fear the power Katniss has as a symbol. The Hunger Games may be over, but her life is still very much in danger. Continue reading
We’ve got a special treat for you this week, we bring you a quasi-live show recorded shortly before the Grimm Gear Gala was held. Featuring special guests Fable Cry, we talk about Fables, Storybook Tales, and the pop culture impact they’ve had. In addition, we’re reminded of CD’s violent tendencies, Q in his native frantic habitat, and John dropping in at the end for some final thoughts and our Achievement Unlocked. We’ve even added a special live recording from Fable Cry at the Gala as well as an interview with famed Frenchy and the Punk for our Clockwork Quarter Hour!
Lights…Camera…Action! The ESO satellite reeks of testosterone this week as we rave about our favorite action heroes on the big and small screen. The award-winning author Bobby Nash takes control of the station and leads the elite fighting force of Mike, Mike, Dan Carroll, and Thomas Deja through shootouts, fists of fury, daredevil car chases, and explosions galore to find out which heroes are left standing and which are expendable. And if that wasn’t enough to make our guest Thomas sweat, we also strap the writer in The Geek Seat. Plus, Michael Day beams aboard to promote the upcoming Farragut Fest in the Khan Report. All this along with the usual Rants, Raves, and Shout Outs!
