Greetings! Hey, we are back on schedule! This month we talk about Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick. Do you think that Vin Diesel’s Riddick character is a Christ type, or is that stretching the definition too far? We also do a roundup of several shows Mike and I have been watching this fall. Some of them have potential.
Finally! The cursed episode is finally completed and released! After many delays in recording due to various health problems for both Mike and Robert, then more delays after half the audio recorded was rendered unusable due to computer malfunctions, we at last present to you this episode on The Godfather Series and “The Bible: The Epic Miniseries.” We think we have some keen insights that you will surely enjoy.

Please forgive us for the long break; we promise that the next episode is already in the can and will be released at the beginning of November. We are going to talk (have already talked?) about the Vin Diesel vehicles Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick. What do these have to do with religion? Well, just enough for us to talk about. See you soon!
Celebrate Independence Day weekend with a new podcast from Checking the Gate. We evaluate the religious merits of the Hellboy movies and the short lived series “Save Me.” Our Hellboy discussion, admittedly, is merely an excuse to talk about Guillermo Del Toro’s new film Pacific Rim out July 12. But our discussion about “Save Me” get heated; Mike decries its quality while Robert defends it from those who judge without merit.
Next Month is our EPIC SPECIAL! We are watching the Godfather Trilogy and the History Channel mega-series “The Bible” All of these are available on DVD and Blu-Ray.
Hello faithful listeners, ye who are full of faith! Welcome to a another special episode of CTG Podcast. This month Mike and I have recommended new media to the other for our review session. I (Robert) suggested the movie Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myselfand Mike heralded Aaron Sorkin’s “The West Wing.” Please forgive us caffeine and sugar drove us into tangentland more than once.
In anticipation of Guillermo Del Toro’s kaiju vs. robot extravaganza Pacific Rim coming out next month, we will be turning our gaze upon his previous films Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Both are available on DVD, Blu-Ray, Netflix, and for rent on Amazon. For TV Corner, a new show has come to our attention, that Anne Heche vehicle “Save Me” airing currently on NBC Thursdays at 8PM Eastern. You can also catch up on previous episodes at NBC.com and Hulu Plus.
May the Fourth be with you! Well, it’s a little after May the Fourth. With Free Comic Book Day, Iron Man 3 premiering, and further celebration for Revenge of the Sixth some of us were suffering from nerd hangovers. At any rate, this month’s episode is edited and posted for your enjoyment and enrichment. We discuss the 1997 Zemeckis film Contact and deliver a diatribe of the TV show “Ancient Aliens.”
We have a special theme for our next episode—CTGPodcast Recommends. I recommended to Mike Tyler Perry’s I Can Do Bad All By Myself and Mike suggested I watch select episodes of the “West Wing.” Until then we will be watching something new and catching up on all those free comics!
Once again it is Easter time, and here at CTGPodcast we are celebrating by watching what we think should be required viewing for all mature Christians: Monty Python’s Life of Brian. In TV Corner we begin discussing the merits of the show “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” but somehow end up debating the cost of pledging devotion to Vin Diesel. “Huh?” you might say to yourself; just listen.
Next month, we have another theme show in which review the movie Contact and in TV Corner the meme source “Ancient Aliens.” Be sure to listen in on our mobile site at http://ctgpodcast.podbean.com/mobile/ He is Risen!
Thank you for listening to episode 22 of CTG Podcast where we, Mike and Robert, review the movie Clash of the Titans and the TV show “Fringe.” We discuss why the ancient Greek religion still persists in our imaginations, if those gods are really dead, and if so are we trying to be gods ourselves.
Along the way we talk about these tangents as well:

Next time we will celebrate Easter once again by watching Monty Python’s Life of Brian. This satirical examination of religious behavior should be required viewing for people of all faiths. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
We’re back! Thank you for hanging in there last month. We wanted to bring you our best and we have that here this month with our review of the movie “Stargate” and its spin-off “Stargate SG-1.” What is more true, scientific fact or religious faith? We seek to find the answer through the Stargate (or Chapa’ai for all you true believers out there).
