Dystopian Society. Utopian Society. Information Society (it’s a band, look them up). No one really knows what kind of society they’re in while they’re in it. Just because you had a crappy day or the economy is bad, you may think you’re in a dystopian society when in fact you are in a Utopian Society like the Jetsons. Except with people other than JUST WHITE PEOPLE.
Seriously. Go back and watch the Jetsons. Only whities as far as the eye can see.
mmmm, I’d say that the Jetsons where actually very Dystopian. Way to white-wash the future both Hanna and Barbera! Jerks.
It’s Christmas! We at RotO hope you have a great one.
We have 12 Angry Elves, The Noir Before Christmas, plus Brian Blessed as a Christmas Tree! What more could you want?
Besides the pony.
Our yearly Halloween episode is out! Yay!
We listen to the trouble of a couple vultures, a Tech Support from the future, a handful of More Than You Need To Know’s, and some other stuff I can’t remember right now. But you’ll find out if you listen. Happy Halloween! And yes, I did forget to add the closing credits to the ep, so here they are now.
Biscuit was the Titlest. The rest of the voices where done by Christiana and myself. 50/50 split on the writing.
Why is it episode 0810? Well, I wanted to mark that we were in our 8th season. Christiana wanted to keep the episode number of the V5 eps. And, it looks a little like we’ve just released our 810th episode. So we got that going for us. Which is, you know, nice.

Superheroes. We’ve all grown up with them, either in comicbooks, novels, television, or movies. They’re great heroes here to swoop down and save us, all right?
I’ve never been a fan of reality television. Yes, I know UberHost Christiana Ellis does a show based on Survivor, but I don’t look down on her for that. Actually, I don’t think I could look down on her, given as she is a tremendously funnier writer than I am (you thought it’s because she’s an inch taller. That’s hightest, you jerk).
And with the upcoming relaunch of Cinemafreaks, we felt skewering reality television might be fun.
