Dorking Out Episode X2: ‘Rogue One’ reshoots, remakes, binge-watching and more

Leave a comment

Yeah, so, we’re talking about a lot of really good stuff in this week’s Dorking Out.

You’ll notice that this episode is titled X2. It’s our second trial run, before our official launch next week. It’s still a fun episode, so you should listen.


Here’s a quick rundown of what we’re chatting about:

  • The producer of that trainwreck “Fantastic Four” wants to reboot it with the same cast. Smith has thoughts and feelings about it.
  • Brie Larson might play “Captain Marvel.”
  • The secret box office success of “Zootopia.”
  • In the new play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Hermione is played by a black actress and apparently that’s a problem for racists people.
  • We use the reshoots of “Rogue One” as jumping off point to talk about what do you do when a story isn’t working.
  • There’s rumors of a “Splash” remake, which turns into a fun discussion about remakes. I think our viewpoints on remakes might surprise you.
  • Finally, we end the podcast asking the age-old question, “Is binge-watching really a good thing?” I have a love-hate relationship with binge watching, so I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about this one.

You can find all things Dorking Out on our website, We’ve even got a newsletter that you can sign up for. Oh la la. We’re so dorky fancy.

You can listen to it here, or you can find us on iTunes and SoundCloud.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
