The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – Episode 39

In this episode of Watch.Read.Listen., David and Duane discuss Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill’s excellent comic The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen as well as Stephen Norrington’s less-than-extraordinary 2003 adaptation starring Sean Connery. How can such a great story have such a mediocre adaptation (and why is that so often the case)?

But first:

This week, Duane watched a lot of Braille Skateboarding’s YouTube channel, especially their “You Make It, We Skate It” and “Skate Everything” series, as well as Starbucks Doubleshot’s mini-doc on them. He listened to To Speak of Wolves newly-released EP New Bones, and Mythgard Academy’s final session on Tolkien’s The Lost Road.

David listened to the Hail Ming Power Hour Podcast, and watched Sergio Martino’s Torso (1973), Taika Waititi’s Boy (2010), and classic horror movies Phantasm (1979) and Phantasm II (1988).
