Consumed Podcast 17: Star Trek Into Darkness

The Consumed Podcast rose from the dead this weekend for a double-feature. Max Cantor and I gathered in New York for the opening of Star Trek Into Darkness and spent over half an hour hashing Bad Robot's franchise. We start off questioning if this is really a reboot, which leads to the many ways the company has changed the franchise.

But the big stuff lies in the Spoiled section, where we get to discuss the mystery villain, villainy in Star Trek, and most interesting of all, Into Darkness as an action movie that attempts to condemn revenge and violence. It's a conversation I'd love to expand on. You can join us in the Comments and download the MP3 of the podcast right here.

The second half of our double-feature, discussing Iron Man 3, ought to be out in the next week. With good luck the podcast may get up and running routinely afterward. We're deeply looking forward to some episodes about Naoki Urasawa's Monster, which you can watch for free on Hulu.


  1. I'm not familiar with podcasts, but this all sounds interesting. I don't go to theaters much, but I hope to see these movies.

  2. Into Darkness was just a good, solid movie. I liked it even better than Iron Man III.

  3. I haven't read this post yet as I'm going to see the Star Trek film tomorrow and don't want to read any reviews before I go. Just to let you know that I've nominated you for the Sunshine Award! :)

  4. Monster is my favourite manga. Amazing story.
