Episode #78 – Beyond Ridiculous

Hosted by Selina Wilken, Tariq Kyle, Kristen Kranz, Karen Rought

December 17, 2015

It’s everything NOT The Force Awakens on this week’s episode of Hype: We catch up on Fantastic Beasts, Star Trek, X-Men, The 100, Maze Runner and much more.

How We Hype:
– Kyle attended the Shannara Chronicles premiere and had a great time
– Kristen warmly recommends The Good Dinosaur, and talks a little about her experience watching Buffy for the first time (ICYMI: our ReWatchable podcast just started a Buffy rewatch!)
– Karen read a book! It’s called Da Vinci’s Tiger and it sounds amazing.

News:
– So many trailers. We start off with a little thing called Fantastic Beasts!
– We’re not as skeptical of Star Trek: Beyond as the Internet at large seems to be
– Karen is stoked for Independence Day 2
– Then there’s the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer…
– …And also Legend of Tarzan
– AND the international Civil War trailer, which is really just Karen’s excuse to gush about Tony Stark
– We spend some time talking about the marvel that is The 100 fandom, and dissect the new season 3 trailer. #TeamBellamy
– There’s a new Sherlock Christmas special trailer, but we’re not convinced going AU is a good call
– MTV orders some exciting new comedies
– The Xena reboot picks up Javier Grillo-Marxuach, which is good news
– We recap the Golden Globes nominations and share our predictions
– The Maze Runner prequel has a release date, and the synopsis is epic
– The most popular Tumblr topics of 2015 are… interesting.
