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.

  1. Don’t leave me hanging like that! What was the argument that Station won on the internet?

    After hearing this review, I feel like I’d really enjoy the first 90 seconds or so of Life, basically everything up until the satellite is on final (attempted) flyby of the ISS. After that, eh.

    I think it’s awesome that The Sci-Fi Podcast a) reviewed a Lifetime Original Movie, and b) said movie was not The Client List in Space.

    Mattroid forgot to mention “The Inspection Station” in his list of OSS (Occasional Special Segments). I enjoyed the first appearance of “Schrödinger’s Corner.” I haven’t thought about Chain Reaction probably since its theatrical release. Good to know that the science is “sound.” (See what I did there?) Maybe I’ll check it out someday. Also, I couldn’t tell whether Brain was alive or dead during his review, or whether it was both at the same time.

    • Hey Cody!

      Our neighborhood (Daybreak) has a Facebook page. Occasionally some asshat gets on there and starts attacking the LDS church/missionaries/members. I tend to go mama bear when it comes to the LDS church because many of my loved ones are incredible LDS members and I have a lot of respect for the church.

      I started picking the post apart, pointing out the absurdness and how horribly intolerant they were despite the claim they “are, like, SO tolerant of other religions”. Naturally, all of the “SO TOLERANT” LDS-haters started ganging up but I totally murdered them with my words and brain logic. Plus, I got the final dis in before they shut off comments! Bam!

      So the moral of the story is that if you aren’t going to be excellent to each other, I’m going to verbally spank you.

      • Everyone should always be excellent to each other. (And also party on, dudes!) 🙂 Getting the last word in before the comments are turned off, though, is the best. Mike drop!
