Greetings! You are one of the lucky few who have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Ko-Dan armada. Just Kidding! Actually, you get to hear the much more epic, Checking the Gate: A Film and Religion Podcast: Episode One! In our premier podcast, we play beach ball on Pandora and try to discern any hidden meaning in the biggest blockbuster of all time, Avatar. After that we have our TV Corner in which we finish our discussion on “Doctor Who”; you can find the first part of this on our preview episode.
Along the way we mention a few things, which we promised to put in the show notes. So, here are links where you can find Screening the Sacred, Religion and Film, and Film and Religion. You can find the CNN article we mentioned here. Avatar is available on DVD and Blu-Ray in two different versions, the original and the special extended editions.
Next month, we look at the movie Thor, which is still in movie theaters. Go see it and in two weeks we will have episode two available. We plan to make this a monthly podcast but to get started we will give you a double dose! Mike and I will also discuss the recently canceled “V” in the TV Corner. Thanks for listening and enjoy our first episode!
