Stephen King Bonus Ep:”The Mist” Recap

Episode 2 “Withdrawal”

It’s episode two of the Stephen King’s “The Mist” TV series and in this special bonus ep Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast talk about episode two of the Spike TV production. Did they like it better than the less than spectacular pilot?

 

Major points discussed here:

  • Is mall manager Gus (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) a good guy or no?
  • What is the deal with Arrowhead?
  • The deal with Mia’s drug problem
  • “Let me see you, Babydoll!”
  • The reliability of Connor the Cop
  • The cool use of drones (nice update to the material)
  • Who is this Clint person and why did his friends hang themselves?
  • Is this show going to disappoint us like “Under the Dome?”

Book Vs Movie: “Adaptation” vs “The Orchid Thief” 0

Book Vs Movie

“The Orchid Thief” Vs “Adaptation”

 

The Margos are back and taking on their most interesting episode yet with a compare and contrast of the Susan Orlean novel The Orchid Thief (which began as a New Yorker article) and the hit Charlie Kaufman/Spike Jones movie Adaptation. If there has ever been a reason for this podcast to exist –this material is the one to tackle!

So many differences between the book and movie here, we are not quite sure where to begin but let us give it a try.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The interesting history between when the magazine article appeared to several years later where Charlie Kaufman took several liberties with the material.
  • The intense performance by Nicolas Cage (which earned him an Academy Award nomination)
  • The past work of Charlie Kaufman and why he chose to adapt the material as he did.
  • The ingenious casting of Meryl Streep, Chris Cooper and Tilda Swinton.
  • The totally bananas plot twists and turns.
  • How Susan Orleans really feels about this adapted piece of her work.
  • The many, many passages devoted in The Orchid Thief to the history of stealing orchids over the last centuries.

“The Mist” TV Series

Ep. 1 “Pilot”

Margo D. is co-hosting this series recap with Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast (Margo P. avoids the scary stuff!) We are excited to talk about Spike TV’s take on the Stephen King novella and really hope it will be cool! (Margo D. is still smarting after the dreadful “Under the Dome” effort.)

In this ep they discuss:

  • The backstory about the original novella and the 2007 movie which are considered classics.
  • How we see the story unfolding so far
  • What we like (and don’t like) about the first episode
  • The main characters and the actors playing them
  • How weirdly dated it feels
  • Hoping it gets better as the series progresses!

Book Vs Movie Podcast

“Bridget Jones’ Diary” 

The Margos go way back to their 20-something youth to discuss the lovely and talented Renee Zellweger and her most celebrated role as Bridget Jones.

In this episode we talk about author Helen Fielding’s background and how her friendships influenced the book and the film. We compare and contrast between the 1997 novel (that began as a weekly column at The Guardian) and the 2001 film that also stars Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.

In ths ep we discuss:

  • The story behind Bridget Jones and how Helen Fielding created her (at first) anonymously produced work.
  • The obsession with looks and weight that is mentioned throughout the novel.
  • The awesomeness of all of the leads
  • How much Margo P. loves the fight scene
  • How little Margo D. likes the music choices
  • The not so awesome sequels

Hidden Figures

In this podcast the Margos finally get another Margot on the show when they discuss the book to movie adaptation of Margot Lee Shetterley’s Hidden Figures.  We discuss the differences between the book and the film (which was adapted from the 55-page book proposal and not the final book.)

We have some rather strong opinions on which we liked better. Here are some highlights form our discussion:

  • The amazing cast including Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae and Taraji P. Henson.
  • The white characters featured in the film that are NOT in the book.
  • Our reactions to the notorious “bathroom scene”
  • Our ideas for a Hidden Figures Hulu series!
  • The outstanding score by Pharrell Williams
  • Margo P.’s and Margo D’s new podcast shows coming up soon!

Which version of Zuckerberg is the real one? 

The Margos are back to regular episodes!

In this episode they discuss the Ben Mezrich book “The Accidental Billionaire” that was published in 2009 and compare it to the 2010 classic film directed by David Fincher (our third Fincher adaptation!)
