Re: The End of Fight the Future

It's coming on monday! The clean intro music, outro music - and some never-before-heard Fight the Future music, that is significantly different!

Re: The End of Fight the Future

I was on vacation so I didn't reply to this. Thanks so much @DaMage, it really means a lot to me! I was almost in tears. And thanks @Clypheous!

Now I'm really determined to make this last episode fun!

Re: The End of Fight the Future

Thanks for that @Jenelmo!

Since I'm travelling, to get all the awesomeness into this last, clip-show episode I have envisioned, I'm pushing back the release date two weeks, to March 29. It will be fun!

@mutant_pie Damnit!! I was thinking of Kurtwood Smith! Another guy who could easily demand automatic fealty in the event of an apocalypse - and us peons would go with it.

Re: Episode suggestions

Good work @ritchards!! How did you get all that? I will amend that slightly: that line is from the trailer to THX 1138 (not YA but a terrific low budget dystopia! And the line was perfect.) Thanks SomeGuyFromRedDeer! I love Monica Hughes. Did you hear our Devil on My Back episode? That book absolute...

Re: The End of Fight the Future

I don't mean to say that you aren't all great fans, but reading @Clypheous's post moved me because it's an example of our podcast being useful, at least in a tiny microscopic way, something I sort of doubted.

Re: Fight the Future 23 - The Knife Of Never Letting Go

Great point @GregSanders, in the contrast with the Boy and His Dog! (it's a bummer though that it fulfilled an all-too-typical YA trope, of the brave dog dying. Gordon Korman even wrote a whole novel based on that called No More Dead Dogs) Other good thoughts there too.

Thanks @Planes! Cecile loved being on the show, and I loved what she brought to it. She was super happy you said that! @Clypheous did *anybody* understand the plan? I'm half of the opinion it's a "maze runner" situation: the author had a mood and a few setpieces in mind, but no idea where ...

The End of Fight the Future

In every episode of Fight the Future with Dan and Paul we talk about the end of the world. And now our little world is coming to an end. We will cover two more YA dystopias, and then we've decided that the 26th episode will be the last. If we keep going, I might have to watch Allegiant, and that's n...

Re: Fight the Future 17 - Enders Game

Do you really not believe you reap any benefits from being white? Maybe there are a lot of advantages you haven't thought of . Even if you personally aren't doing so well, you have to admit white people are doing great on average in north america. (for starters, 27% of American Indians were living i...

Thanks @Penthesilea180! Maybe one teaching use of this movie - which is faintly distasteful as an entertainment commodity - is to get american and british teens to relate to teens in war zones, who might look and sound quite different. Right after, switch to refugee teens telling their story - this ...

Re: Fight the Future 17 - Enders Game

To bring it back to Ender's game, one curious part of the scenario (of the movie anyway) is that the Formic apparently don't control any resources that humans might benefit from, and so their motives in going to war are entirely unmixed. When does that ever happen?

@Lord Chrusher, I meant to write here sooner, that we recorded this a week before the Paris attacks. I did some careful editing in light of that - for example, I said something at the end like, "May the odds ever be in your favour...and yet terrorists are still going to kill us all." Which...

People here and on the Youtube comments have brought up a lot of great nuances, mostly that are in the book. For example, it wasn't the one big dress rehearsal before the big assault (in which case, why would we assume he would act any differently on the day?) but one in a long series of simulations...
