Flame On :: Episode 287 :: Watch Out For The Severance, Sonic!
Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.
Is that a golden ring in your pocket or did you just forget the world outside of your job? Well Big Grrls just you wait because Idris Elba is here to sweep you off your feet and spin your Tails right round. That’s right, whether you are dancing the night away, working without any of your memories intact, or planning your bottomless mimosa brunch at The Olive Garden, the boys of Flame ON! have your severance covered!
Dear listeners, the time has come and the boys of Flame ON! are hopping through the gold ring to join the round table discussion about the month in pop culture! There is one less member though because Erik is celebrating his birthday during this episode, so be sure to send him all the birthday love! The first topic on the docket for discussion is the Apple TV+ sci-fi dramady, Severance. Created by Dan Erickson and brought to life through the help of Ben Stiller, this office based show detaches the workers from their trauma and shows what life could be like if we could really “leave it at the door” when we go to work. Is this show worth the watch? Listen in to find out! From there, the conversation shifts to the fast and the remodeled second installment in the video game/movie franchise, Sonic 2! Adding in fan favorites Tails and Knuckles (voiced by the ever so dreamy – and Taylor Swift cameo-ing – Idris Elba) the journey of everyone’s favorite speedster hedgehog shows a bookend journey for Robotnik and brings him closer to the Eggman that you know from the video games. You also get to be baffled by the thought of having brunch at the Olive Garden, but that’s a thought for another day! After a brief pause for station identification, it’s time for you to Watch Out For The Big Grrls as Lizzo‘s new reality competition show gets you moving and dancing. Is this the feel good show you needed? Spoiler alert, yes it is! After that, it’s time for the 1UPs where the boys share what is giving them life!
Sit back and get ready to FLAME ON!
