The Montreal geek and pop culture podcast that still doesn’t quite understand Dr. Who is back and this time we talk about Squid Game. Among other things.
There is something extremely compelling about Battle-Royale style fight to the death media, isn’t there? Hunger Games was a massive mainstream media success and now Squid Game is the biggest show ever on Netflix. If that doesn’t say something about where we are at mentally I don’t know what to tell you.
We also really get into another Netflix show and that show is Midnight Mass. I kind of feel like Midnight Mass would have been a lot bigger hit for Netflix if it was quickly (and probably unexpectedly) overtaken by Squid Game but here we are. A slow burn psychological, then supernatural horror is hard to pull off and barring a few incredibly long monologues about the nature of God and death Midnight Mass mostly succeeds.
We round out the episode with a few other spooky/thriller things for you to enjoy since I guess this is our Halloween episode.
If you want even more good 9ES goodness I would suggest you check out our companion show Garbage Time over on Patreon, on this week’s episode we talk a little about Trailer Park Boys and then Keith grills Jon with surprisingly difficult Dungeon’s and Dragons trivia and Jon (un)surprisingly does very well.To listen to Garbage Time check out our Patreon Page and subscribe to the 9ES Deluxe level tier. You will love it.
Keith and Jon two man this very special episode of 9ES.  Those crazy islanders!
