THE SCI-FI PODCAST EP 37: Life (2017) and Displacement (2017)

Missing William Solo Jr., fighting a small baby for command of the mic, and covering two unrelated movies? It’s all a day in the life of the Sci-Fi Podcast crew. On this episode, Ryan “Rybo” Welling pops in for a visit and discusses giving Station! a medal for winning a fight on the internet.

Mattroid and Brain discuss the recently released Life (2017) and whether or not it’ll improve or make your own life worse for watching it.

And later in the show, the two are joined by Station! and baby Ripley for a hilarious detailing of the movie Displacement (2016) and discover that the movie is tied to a very provocative cable network.

Did you enjoy either of these movies? Find them repulsive? Let us know in the comments section.

tsfp-id4rWelcome to The SciFi Podcasta wretched hive of scum and villainy a bi-weekly podcast focused on in-depth discussion of all things Science Fiction. The SciFi Podcast features three hosts—Mattroid, Solo, Brain, and Station!—and frequent guests. Each episode we look at a science fiction theme or franchise and take the discussion where no show has gone before.

It’s been 20 years since aliens landed on Earth and picked a fight with Will Smith and the rest of the human species, and since our victory they’ve been plotting and scheming on returning to our planet to finish the job they started in the 90s. Does humanity prevail? Is a Will Smith-less cast strong enough to hold up such a huge sequel? Did you like this movie or not? Let us know in the comments section.
