Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 46: BoK Fan Choice: THE VALKYRIE Part 2: The Commentary

July 26, 2017
00:0000:00
One of the things that Kevin and Norm love most about having created the Blood of Kings Podcast, is the growth of the amazing HIGHLANDER Fan Community on Facebook and Social Media. Listener and fan interaction is incredibly important to promoting new discussions in all aspects of the Highlander universe. One BOK fan in particular, SHAWN DEMPSEY, inspired Kevin and Norm to take a deeper look into one of his favorite episodes: Season 5’s THE VALKYRIE.
Please join Kevin and Norm as they continue their "deep dive" study of THE VALKYRIE with a full-length episode commentary. Also, please let us know what YOU think about Ingrid "choosing" to become the aspect of the Valkyrie from ancient legend; to be the judge, jury and executioner of those who are to be spared and those who are to be slain. Do Immortals have the right to "abuse" their gift and thus...shape the world of mortal men through the use of that power?

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 45: BoK Fan Choice: THE VALKYRIE Part 1: A Retrospective

One of the things that Kevin and Norm love most about having created the Blood of Kings Podcast, is the growth of the amazing HIGHLANDER Fan Community on Facebook and Social Media.

One BOK fan in particular, SHAWN DEMPSEY, inspired Kevin and Norm to take a deeper look into one of his favorite episodes: Season 5’s THE VALKYRIE.
 
Shawn wrote to Blood of Kings and stated, "I like the episode THE VALKYRIE because I think it is one of the best written Highlander episodes. There are so many layers to this story. It plays on the old WHAT IF game: If you could go back in time and kill Hitler, would you? But in this case, if you know someone has the potential to be just as bad, should you eliminate them?"  
 
Please join Kevin and Norm as they try to unravel quite possibly one of the most powerful questions that has been raised in the entirety of the Highlander lore and one of the most PERFECT examples of the possible ABUSE of Immortality: Having the time and opportunity to shape the world to one's making no matter the cost.

Good Evening: An Alfred Hitchcock Podcast Episode 5.5 – Hitchcock and Truffaut Part 1

July 17, 2017
00:0000:00

 

In the fall of 1962, whilst The Birds was in post-production, François Truffaut carried out extensive interviews with Alfred Hitchcock at his offices at Universal Studios. The interviews were recorded to audio tape and the content eventually edited down into Truffaut's Hitchcock book.

Although Truffaut could speak a little English, he hired Helen Scott (of the French Film Office in New York) to act as the translator for the interviews.

Truffaut had intended to quickly publish the book of the interviews, but the first edition wasn't published until several years later (1966 in France and 1967 in America). To bring the book up-to-date, Truffaut conducted further interviews to discuss Marnie and Torn Curtain.

In 1984, Patricia Hitchcock donated a set of the interview tapes to the Margaret Herrick Library, where they are now part of the Hitchcock Collection. Although Truffaut claimed that the recordings lasted 50 hours, the surviving tapes — which cover the 1962 interviews — last for less than 26 hours.

Research by Janet Bergstrom has made clear the fact that the book often does not contain a verbatim transcript of Hitchcock's responses to Truffaut's questions.

The audio tapes of the interviews have not been released commercially. However, portions of the tapes were used for a French radio broadcast by the station "France Culture".

Nearly 12 hours of the interviews were broadcast on French radio as a 25 part series. Each episode runs for just over 25 minutes.

Transcriptions are available for some of the parts.

Childhood through to his early years in the film industry.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 44: DESERT ISLAND CHALLENGE!

July 10, 2017
00:0000:00
In Fandom, we LOVE lists: BEST OFs, TOP TENs, FAN FAVORITES...you name it...we love ranking our fandoms and everything within those fandoms. On Episode 37: Getting to Know Your Hosts…Kevin and Norm played a game called DESERT ISLAND CHALLENGE and they decided to really expand the scope of this game for an entire podcast!
 
The rules of DESERT ISLAND CHALLENGE are really simple. The scenario is that you have packed up all of your worldly possessions and are sailing to a new land, similar to the Titanic, when disaster strikes and you only have ONE CHANCE to save only ONE CHOICE of...in this case All Things Highlander from sinking into the abyss. These choices will be the only choices you are allowed to toss into a lifeboat and live with for the rest of your life on a nearby Deserted Island. And yes...you will have a fully functioning entertainment there to enjoy your time alone LOL!
 
For this episode, we are going to start with the TELEVISION SERIES first because we feel that this is really much more difficult than the MOVIE SERIES because there are so many more options to choose from regarding just the television episodes. But fear not, in future DESERT ISLAND episodes, we will tackle all of the other areas of Highlander as well.
 
So with all of this in mind, we would like to also challenge all of you - our Blood of Kings listeners - to play along with us and let us know on FB, or TWITTER or on Social Media - your choices for the HIGHLANDER: Desert Island Scenario.
