Episode 19



George is going out with a woman whom he deems as pretentious.  Although George believes that the Truth maybe the way to go, this causes a conflict of interest with Jerry, for the Pretentious Patrice, George's dating friend, has Jerry's records, helping him with a Tax Audit situation.  And on the other side of the mountain, Kramer is dating Elaine's roommate, which leads to some strange bed fellow follies. 
Listen to Erin and Ashford discuss The Truth by Elaine Pope.

Episode 18: The Note



The season opener for the 3rd series is the Note, written by Larry David.  Receiving a massage from a man, George really questions himself, while receiving no help or support from his friends.  Great open to the season.  As a viewer, one can really tell that the show took a leap forward.  Even Jerry in the opening scene, giving virtually a routine/bit/monologue to the massage therapist, scares her off with his morose, creep factor banter about abducted children.  Seinfeld's performance while giving the monologue was quite good.
Let us know your "What is the Deal?"  And when is the last time you got the "Hook Up"?

Episode 75: The Time of Angels/Flesh and Stone




The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone by Steven Moffat are quite a feat.  Bring back River Song and The Weeping Angels, along with High Definition, The Doctor, Amy, and the Church, Moffat really flexed his creative muscle, displaying the direction the show was going from this point on.  What else do we want, right?  Siskoid and Ashford discuss this two part story to great length.  We're talking a little over an hour.  Ashford mentions this was the episode that made him buy into Matt Smith and being a Whovian all together.

Episode 17: The Bus Boy



Erin and Ashford discuss the season finale of season 2, the Bus Boy, written by Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David. Not meaning to, George causes the firing of a Bus Boy, hence the title.  Feeling responsible for this unfortunate event, George tries to make up for it, only causing more grief for the character he is trying to appease. 
Meanwhile, Elaine is trying to get rid of her "nice guy" man friend.  He was great for a weekend, but for a full blown week...a bit much.  This is the episode where the Elaine character is given some material where she could display her chops. 
We gave this one a 2 out of 5 Superman Shields.

Episode 77: Chuck Dixon's Final Story



Chuck Dixon's final story has explosions, guns, double-double crosses, which sometimes negates the original double cross.  Only a panel or two with Oracle, and Black Canary only playing a supporting character, for the action, plot, and other characters over shadow our main protagonist, yet despite it all, this really serves as a great good bye for Chuck Dixon.

The Black Panther Movie



Yes, Marvel Studios released Black Panther, and it was glorious.  Here at the Wright On Network, we have been working on giving you a response to the film, but we didn't want to rush anything out.  We wanted to compile some conversations from people with different vantage points, which we believe is important, for we all have our different schema, philosophies, and experiences. 
Ryan Daly of the Power of Fishnets podcast over at the www.fireandwaterpodcast.com, Mark of the Feathers and Foes podcast, Delvin, Dr. Shelby-King, and Jada all joined Ashford in a discussion about this unique triumph, Black Panther.

Episode 76: Full Circle 2



Ashford and Mark discuss Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #20 by Shawna and Julie Benson with pencils by Roge Antonio.  Parting of the ways after the death of Gus and the secrets of Barbara Gordon.  Can the Birds ever trust each other again?  Will they ever reunite?
After hearing the news that the book is discontinuing, newer info has now hit the web, such as, the Benson sisters are writing for Green Arrow!  What????  Make sure you congratulate them on Social Media.
As Birds of Prey lovers, we truly hope that the team are not fully neglected.  And for Ashford, he hopes that Huntress will be used somewhere in the DC Universe.

Episode 73: Marco Polo




How does a podcast talk about a serial of Doctor Who where the actual story doesn't exist?  In a word.  Easily.  Ashford read the novelization to prep before the show, while Siskoid, of the Siskoid Blog of Geekery, revisited the reconstruction.  One can not go wrong either way. 
Ashford hopes that one day this seven part serial can be found with its lavish costumes, exotic locations, and realistic angst and peril.  Electronic Mail us your thoughts at prydonian.post@gmail.com or visit our website www.wrightonnetwork.com

Episode 16: The Chinese Restaurant



Going out to eat is such a human act.  Attending a place where others will serve you your food is quite a unique trait of the human race compared to other species of the animal kingdom.  The Four Who Rule minus one attends a Chinese Restaurant where the wait time is like purgatory...without the magazines.  Sorry, I don't know where I was going with that one.  Elaine, Jerry, and George are attending a bad b-movie, and I'm not talking about the Bee Movie.  But before the movie, they want to fill their bellies.  Erin and Ashford discuss on episode 16 of the Four Who Rule: A Seinfeld Podcast.

Episode 72: End of Time



Ruth, Darrin, Siskoid, and Ashford have come together to discuss the end of an era: Showrunner, Doctor, Series, and Standard Definition.  That's right.  Straight Outta Gallifrey is discussing The End of Time by Russell T. Davies.  Could the 10th Doctor do so much more, or was it time for a...renewal? We also know that David Tennant was/is adored by many.  Do you miss him? Ashford has mentioned how the 10th Doctor is his favorite thing about 50th, but can think of many Doctor Who stories to pop in before a series 2-4 story.

Straight Outta Gallifrey: A State of Temporal Grace episode 3 features Doctor Who and the Silurians, which is a Malcolm Hulke story.  Diane of the Helena Wayne Blog and Jordan the Librarian join Ashford to discuss this Doctor Who story featuring Doctor Liz Shaw played by Caroline John!  Special tribute to the late Peter Miles who passed away as we were producing this episode.  A song called Can't We Be Friends performed by him and Dusty Springfield are played at the beginning of this podcast.  What a great lost.  We will miss him.
We also have U.N.I.T. with one of the members, Hawkins, played by Paul Darrow.  Yea!  Allen Wright of the Boldoutlaw.com has a segment where he explains the careers of some of the actors in this serial.

Episode 71: End of Time


The end of an Era on so many levels: Showrunner, Doctor, supporting characters, standard definition.  Rassilon returns, madder as a hatter, and as cross as a crossword puzzle.  He and the Time Lords are locked in a timeless bubble if you will, and for good reason, I might add.  If Rassilon and the Time Lords are released, they will complete their mission, to rid reality and time itself, which the Doctor knew, and that is why he chose to use the Moment.  I know.  Spoilers.  

Ashford and Siskoid discuss the End of Time by Russell T. Davies.  

Ashford mentioned that there is a way to read an early draft about Day of the Doctor, featuring Christopher Eccelson's Doctor before he turned it down.  Please click the link below this sentence.

Edge of Destruction really stayed true to the commitment.  A blast from the pass with the Tribe of Gum, a futuristic story with the Ones from Skaro, and this sideways story, where the TARDIS team are split down the middle.  Humans vs. The Gallifreyans. 
The fate of the show is in limbo as well as the trust of the Four Who Rule this program: Barbara, Ian, the Doctor, and Susan.  Yes, Susan was quite frightening in this story with the scissors and death glares.  Joe Dredd and Ashford discuss this two part serial.

Batgirl has hacked into the Calculator's computer system, extracting his database to prevent crimes before they happen.  Although Barbara is trying to do the greater good, perhaps she is placing her loved ones in harms way.

Episode 11: The Revenge



Ashford and Erin discuss the Revenge, and its problematic plot, dealing with slipping people a drug that makes them not aware of their faculties. Played for laughs in the early 90s and 80s, but under the "wokeness" of today's climate, quite disturbing to say the least.
Yes, George wants to slip his sexist boss a drink containing a "mickey".  No harm no foul, right?  But we have to question one of our main characters having a "mickey" hook up without question why his mickey hook up has mickey concoctions in the first place.

Finally, we have reached the issue where we get to discuss the backstory of why Power Girl has had beef with The Oracle.  Yep, we are interrupting the Bruce Wayne Fugitive saga with this back story between the early days of Barbara Gordon and Power Girl.  Yes, before there was Oracle and Black Canary, this could have been the team; however, with plans sinking like a ship, these two have never been the same.

Also, there are a lot of defining who and what the Doctor is in this one.  Darrin, Ruth, Siskoid, and Ashford talk about Jenny and what constitutes a Time Lord.

Episode 70: Batgirl and the Birds of Prey in Paris!!



Yes, the Birds are in Paris, but this is not a love story.  Well, actually...this is a love story between the reader and creators.  This is a rocking story, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey 18 is.  We have Spyral, Paris, future tech, a connection with other books in the DCU, and the Birds of Prey!
When Huntress is propositioned a case in Paris from Tiger, a player in the Spyral organization, which Huntress used to be apart of before joining the BOP, she recruits the Birds of Prey to come along.  As it happens, Barbara Gordon was in route to the City of Lights for a Tech Talk, and we all know Black Canary is down for whatever, so how can we not love this bottle issue?

A State of Temporal Grace 1: The Romans



The Romans is played as a farce, yet the the story lends itself to something that goes way beyond problematic.  The actions of Nero is flat out criminal, and the Doctor's ambivalence to Nero's antics are  damn near complicit.  Despite the hard to watch scenes, like Barbara trying to escape sexual assault from Nero, which is played for laughs, the scenes between Vicky and the Doctor are quite delightful.
Remember, Susan had just left during the Daleks' Invasion of Earth, so the Doctor really needed someone to humor him, and Vicky filled that role quite nicely.

Episode 66: An Unearthly Child



Siskoid, Joe Dredd, and Ashford discuss Straight Outta Gallifrey's first episode about the Doctor's granddaughter, Susan.  This first serial where we see Susan attending Coal Hill High School in 1963 London is quite fascinating.  Two concerned teachers, Barbara and Ian, investigate Susan, who is "ahead of her time" in some areas of study, and totally off in others, follow her home to a junkyard.  Quite stunned by the fact that she enters a police box, they are accosted by the Doctor.  And this is when our adventure begins.
Waris Hussein did a superlative job of directing this new challenge of television, inserting flashbacks and all.  The mysterious figure, known only as the Doctor, played by William Hartnell, really came across as a Mad Man. As a kid, I don't know how long it would have taken me to trust him.

Episode 64: Survival



The final episode of series 26 broached many interesting ideas by Rona Munro, who later returns to Doctor Who in 2017's story, the Eaters of Light.  Both stories play around with ideas about bravery, divides among cultures, traditions, languages, species, etc.  Ace returns to her hometown, and it is not a hero's welcome. 
"If we live like animals, we die like animals!" the Doctor shouts.  The final act of the Cold War is the backdrop for the viewer's real life.  Imagine, many people think this is a weak story to go out on, but actually, the story question's toxic masculinity, challenges the viewer with the idea that sometimes it takes more strength not to fight, and what defines the progression of a people.  I don't know about you, but the Doctor stating: Somewhere there is injustice, somewhere there is Tyranny, and somewhere else, the tea is getting cold.  C'mon Ace, we have work to do.  Sorry for paraphrasing.  Too lazy to look up the quote.  But if that is not Doctor Who, then I will just be wrong about the matter.
