Book Vs Movie Podcast

The Margos had an excellent suggestion for this episode--The Phantom of the Opera which first appeared in a series featured in Le Gaulois in 1909 & 1910 by author Gaston Leroux.  Inspired by events that happened at the Paris Opera in the mid-19th Century, including a secret underground lake that was used for firefighter training as well as a chandelier crash that was a source of mystery at the time.

Censors have attacked the story for its use of vulgarities (including racist language) and it is listed by the American Library Association’s list of “Most Controversial Books of the 20th Century.”  We pair it with the Gary Sinise/John Malkovich 1992 film.

The Margos are closing out our “80s in August” with the James Ivory/Ismail Merchant film A Room With a View which is based on the 1908 novel by E.M. Forester.

Stephen King Bonus Ep:“The Mist” Recap

Episode 6 “The Devil You Know”

Plus: Our “Top 5 Stephen King Guilty Pleasures”


Here we are at episode six of  Stephen King’s The Mist TV series and in this special bonus ep of the Book Vs. Movie podcast Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly podcast offer their weekly recap of the Spike TV production plus, we pick our “Top 5 Stephen King Guilty Pleasures.”

This episode is titled “The Devil You Know” and it is equal parts action-packed and terribly confusing.

Here are the basics of this episode:

The Hospital: Kevin (Morgan Spector), Bryan (Ozekie Morro) and Adrian (Russell Posner) are all still at the hospital and Kevin feels the need to leave. (Killing his brother has made him anxious.)

However, he learns from Adrian that Mia (Danica Curcic) stole their car and they are stuck. Adrian confronts a nurse and finds out that people are disappearing from the hospital but that shouldn't worry at all about that.  He also tries to talk to his crush/hookup to say goodbye but gets the cold shoulder.

Kevin discovers Dr.. Bailey is kidnapping people, filling them up with drugs and sending them out into The Mist. He has lost his mind and Kevin is his next victim. He is rescued by Bryan and Adrian.

Bryan meanwhile kills his “twin” and is anxious to leave. Mia comes back for her journey (more on that later) and The Mist is coming into the hospital and the gang is trapped.

The Mall:

Alex (Gus Birney) and her mother Eve  (Alyssa Sutherland) decide to go shopping as a distraction. There is a really long scene about a jacket and then Alex says she thinks she should go out into The MIst to find her dad because The Mist does not have any interest in her so she would be safe. Eve says “hello no” so Alex decides to make a snaky visit to the shop “Hiker’s World” to get supplies.

Whilst there she gets locked in a break room and then gasoline is flooding in, then the place goes up in flames. Jay the Rapist (Luke Cosgrove) saves her and then gets mouthy with Eve when she admonishes him. Turns out Lila set the fire in retaliation for her daughter dying in Alex’s care.

Also, Eve creates phony fliers to give hope to everyone at the Mall. Gus (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) thinks this is nuts.

Church:

Nathalie (Frances Conroy) and the cop (Connor Heisel) continue their friendship. She makes a strange case for how everyone loves a disaster which made zero sense to Margo D.

Link (Dylan Authors) is the teen boy version of Mrs. Carmody and has turned into a vengeful zealot. He attempts to lock Nathalie in the attic. She gets wise to this and instead breaks open a window which allows The MIst to come in and locking the boy in--basically killing him.

House:

Mia ia back at the house where she first was looking for money and finds her dead mother upstairs in a bedroom. The mother tells her she loves her and that is she wants to kill herself then to go for it. Mia gets out and heads back to the hospital.

Topics covered :

  • Stephen King easter eggs
  • What is the deal with The Mist?
  • Where is this all going to?

Plus, Margo and Deana each pick their “Top 5 Stephen King Guilty Pleasures!”
