Episode 6: Sigourney Weaver and the Alien Franchise (and a lot of MCU Netflix speculation on her casting)

It’s the queen of sci-fi herself: the immortal Ms. Weaver. We cover a lot of ground in this one. Her work, casting stuff, some Dr. Strange magics in, what makes Aliens an acting clinic, and other amazing things!

“Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.”

Episode 2: MCU’s Netflix Shows

Episode 2 where we discuss all things MCU on Netflix (including shows that haven’t even dropped yet!)

Next up some definitions to help you figure out what the hell this podcast is all about (however, I recommend you give a listen to our Episode 0 for a deeper understanding: https://elevatingthegenre.wordpress.com/2016/09/16/episode-0/):

Morrison’s original definition of “Elevated Genre”:
Genre films that tackle “hi-concept” sci-fi concepts on a limited budget focusing on character and “reality” with the concept relegated to the background of the movie. As opposed to a big budget blockbuster where the concept becomes the driving force of the film.

Elevating the Genre Podcast working definition:
Any element in any “genre” (re: geek) piece of IP/story that raises that piece (or a moment or element in the piece) above the normal expectations of that genre.

(These will be the last week for the above definitions.)
