The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy

The Man in the High Castle: Season 3.

The second season left viewers on a cliffhanger as we came face to face with a character that we'd thought dead from the beginning of season one.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Nicolas Anastassiou to talk about the third season of The Man in the High Castle. We discuss coming back to the show, living with the rules, "perfection" vs goodness, how we survive, Year Null, still a thread, what comes next and our ratings.

Split.

The kernel for what would become Split was actually present in the versions of Unbreakable's script, but it was excised because it just didn't work together well in that movie and it would take Shyamalan sixteen years to craft the next chapter in his shared universe.

In this episode of The 602 Club Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris talk about Split. We discuss our expectation, some research, the same universe, James McAvoy, more than human, Dr. Fletcher, Casey, uncomfortable humor, the cameo and our ratings.
