Title: Major Monocle Month #2: Media of Your Youth
Run Time: 22 min 28 secs
Host: Luke Rodgers
Panelists: Oktober, Major Monocle
Topic: TV and Movie from your youth that you will sit down and watch again….
- Luke gets things rolling by talking about how Futurama is always in his top 5 most recent things watched on Netflix. Even though he was an adult when he watched it gave him child-like joy.
- Both Major Monocle and Oktober agree that the original Voltron is and was well worth their eyeballs. Despite some quality issues later, it still holds up as iconic. The panel agrees that Netflix wouldn’t have rebooted it if there wasn’t fan demand. Not to mention the toys.
- Oktober brings up “The Last Unicorn” (1982) and how watching it as an adult is a completely different experience from viewing it as a child. The movie does not sugar coat the themes of mortality, loneliness and the lack of fairness in life.
- Luke talks about how he has a soft spot for crime shows (like those currently on Investigation Discovery) and their “Renactments.” Especially those that take place in the 70’s and 80’s.
- Major Monocle grew up with Dragonball Z. Oktober and Luke were in highschool when they were watching 6th generation video copies (with bad subtitles) from Japan. Luke and Oktober take turns being “that guy” and complaining about character portrayal and the “Super Powered Wrestling” aspects of the show. Major Monocle recommends TeamFourStar’s version for a good rendition.
