Dimensions in Space

Alternate dimensions and parallel worlds is not something The Twilight Zone was afraid to explore, and this month we take a look at two excellent examples of this type of storytelling. Season 3 “Little Girl Lost” explores a scenario where a young girl named Tina slips into the fourth dimension via a portal that opens up in her bedroom wall. The following season in “The Parallel” we see astronaut Robert Gaines transported to a parallel earth where he has a slightly different family in a slightly different house and JFK is unknown.

S2E21 Over There Part 2

Joining us for this incredible season 2 finale from the fringe of America is Patty from Canadia, and we are so excited to be talking about this episode with her! We, of course (and by we, we mean Patty), tackle some of the science in this episode and whether or not it all makes sense. We also talk about our favorite moments from this finale and how amazing Anna is in it, and we talk about aspects of the third season that this finale potentially foreshadows.

S2E21 Over There Part 1

We are finally nearing the end of season 2! Join us as we, along with David Wu (the mastermind behind The Fringemunks), discuss the first half of “Over There,” the incredible season 2 finale! We discuss what we love so much about this epic finale and how it is truly a huge climax for the series overall, pivoting the series in a very new direction for seasons 3 and 4. We also hear from some of our Fringetastic listeners sharing their thoughts about this episode.

S2E20 Northwest Passage

Returning to the main Fringe canon, we find out where Peter went after disappearing at the end of “The Man from the Other Side” – none other than the literal northwest, Washington State! Here he meets Sheriff Ann Mathis (one of the show’s best episodic characters played wonderfully by The Goonies’ Martha Plimpton) as he helps her investigate a string of murders that feel uncomfortably close to Newton’s M.O. Meanwhile, Olivia and Astrid help Walter deal with the aftermath of Peter leaving. Our guest host, Rachel, helps us untangle all of the references that this episode has to the classic show Twin Peaks!

S2E19 Brown Betty

Geoff (xforce11) joins us for this episode to discuss the first of four especially whacky Fringe episodes, Brown Betty, (of which we would get one each season from here on out). In this one, Walter, deeply troubled after the disappearance of Peter, tells Ella a story in which Olivia is a noir detective investigating the disappearance of Peter after he stole Walter’s mechanical heart, except, as Walter tells Ella more than once, things are not quite as they seem. We talk about our thoughts on the short musical numbers, the noir atmosphere, and the many anachronisms.

DB – 2023 Christmas Special – The Church on Ruby Road

"The Church on Ruby Road". What a place to end an era and begin an adventure anew. "The Church on Ruby Road" is the first full story showcasing Ncuti Gatwa as the 15th Doctor and Millie Gibson as his companion Ruby Sunday. This is also the final episode of Don't Blink. Wow, what a mixed bag of emotions this is. The Christmas Specials have returned! Yes, with the return of Russell T. Davies as showrunner we also get a return to Christmas specials. It kinda feels like...

Righteous Reciprocity

Righteous Reciprocity

Rod Serling was no stranger to the atrocities of what Hitler’s Nazi party did to Jews during the Holocaust. He fought in WWII, battled anti-semitism in his own home state, and through the power of his pen fought to bring light to this hate in an effort to end racism of every kind. As brilliant as he was, we unfortunately still find racism all around us and Jews are still being attacked more than any other group today. This month we look at two episodes that Rod wrote to shed light on the horrors of the Nazi party, and express his confidence that their ultimate judgement awaited them. These episodes are “Judgement Night” from season 1 and “Death’s Head Revisited” from season 3. These episodes stand as proof that The Twilight Zone is just as relevant today as it was in the 1960’s.

Best Disney Moments of 2023

Best Disney Moments of 2023

We created a lot of great Disney memories in 2023 and as alwyas, choosing our favorites is no easy task. This year our hosts had Disney expeirences in Hawaii, Anaheim, Orlando, the Caribbean, as well as movie theaters and their living rooms. Regardless of the location Disney gave us a lot to enjoy.  This episode not only serves as our annual time of reflection, but it also will be our final episode for Mouse House Weekly. It has been our honor and pleasure to bring you Disney content over the last four years.  We’d love to stay connected with you via social media, keep sharing our Disney moments with you, and see what kind of Disney magic is happening in your life!

S2E18 The Man From the Other Side

S2E18 The Man From the Other Side

The Man From the Other Side is (at least in correct people’s opinions) one of the best episodes of the entire series of Fringe! Something that we had been anticipating for such a long time – the culmination of the secret that Walter has been keeping for so long and it finally being exposed to Peter. In this climactic, pivotal episode (which really, in a lot of ways, leads fairly directly into the incredible two-part season finale in a few episodes), Peter finally inadvertently discovers that he is from the Redverse, and the scene that follows is one of the best acted, most emotional scenes of the entire series, with absolutely top-notch acting from both Josh Jackson and, of course, John Noble!

Now it’s Time to Say Goodbye

Now it’s Time to Say Goodbye

Goodbyes and endings are so difficult sometimes, but Disney is known for creating some of the most beloved and memorable endings ever put to film. Whether it’s a storybook ending where they all lived “Happily Ever After” or an ending that brings the whole story full circle, Disney knows how to end a movie gracefully.  But what are the best movie endings? As the penultimate episode of Mouse House Weekly, Bryce and Darrell will talk their favorite Disney goodbyes also known as Disney movie endings. Do our favorite Disney movie endings match yours? Join us this week on Mouse House Weekly!
