It's time once again for Post-Apodaclypse to shine its light on post-apocalyptic films that are...well...crappy. On this edition, hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell will take a painful look at the 2001 post-nuke/pandemic/kung fu flick called Gangland, which (kind of) stars Ice T and Coolio, and the 2003 film called Dream Warrior, in which Lance Henrickson and the guy from TV's Beastmaster face off in a post-meteoric future where people have started to gain special abilities, and are therefore feared and hunted for it. The boys watch these films so you don't have to, so 1) you're welcome, and 2) tune in and join the fun!

After an unusually long hiatus, NBC's new show Revolution has returned for the second half of its inaugural season. Let Post-Apodacylypse hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell be your guides through the first four episodes of the return. Will the rebels escape Monroe and his copters? Will the other territories be able to withstand the might of a Monroe Republic with electrical power? Will there be more epic sword-fighting ass-kickery? The answers are within.

Everybody loves vampires, right? They're those bad guys we love to hate who must be stopped (by stake or flame or good old-fashioned decapitation) before they've drained us all. But what if the bad guys won? On this episode of Post-Apodaclypse, hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell look at a sub-genre of post-apocalyptic fiction known as the vampire apocalypse, where vampires become the engine for mankind's destruction. Two modern examples will be explored - The 2010 film called Stake Land, and the season 3 episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer called "The Wish". Tune in and pass the garlic. This episode's gonna suck.

It's all come down to this. Season 3 of AMC's The Walking Dead built up to a big finale, and the final two episodes ("This Sorrowful Life", "Welcome to the Tombs") brings the prison gang and the people of Woodbury to a final showdown. Who lives? Who dies (once, or maybe even twice)? Who will have the final throwdown with the Governor? All these questions and more await you in this latest edition of Post-Apodaclypse, hosted by Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell.
NOTE: This podcast will no longer be available on Tuesdays. Due to schedule changes, we'll now be bringing you new eps on Thursdays.

Season 3 of The Walking Dead, AMC's zombie-rific phenomenon, rolls on toward it's big finale. Post-Apodaclypse hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell "walk" (see what we did there?) you through the episodes "Clear", "Arrow in the Doorpost" and "Prey". The war between our gang of survivors and the peoples of Woodbury seems unavoidable now, and if this show has taught us anything, it's that there's no way to know who's going to make it through to the other side alive. Join us for all of the (deliciously) gory details.

In 1984, Don Johnson would become one of the most recognized faces in the world when Miami Vice hit the TV screen. But in 1975, he was busy wandering the post-nuclear wastelands with a telepathic dog, searching high and low for popcorn and (non-consensual) love. Before Max got Mad and took the Road to Thunderdome, the cult classic A Boy and His Dog, based on the 1969 novella by Harlan Ellison, showed us a world gone crazy after the bombs stopped dropping. Join Post-Apodaclypse hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell as they examine this unique (and frankly, quite messed up) film. Trust them. They have...good taste.
PLEASE NOTE: This episode does have some audio problems, which have now been resolved on future episodes. Our apologies and our hopes that they do not detract from your listening pleasure.

In the year 2000, famed animator Don Bluth created what, thus far, has turned out to be his last animated feature film. It starred such voice talents as Matt Damon, Bill Pullman and Drew Barrymore, and was called Titan AE. Mixing old-school animation with 1990s computer animation, and with a fat indie rock soundtrack, the film was a huge financial failure for Fox Animation. But is it worth seeing all these years later? Join Post-Apodaclypse hosts Tim Watts and Michael O'Connell as they rap about this tale of Earth's orphans seeking survival and rebirth among the stars.
PLEASE NOTE: There were sound problems recording this episode, so we apologize for them in advance.
