Folks, it happened, I started another podcast, and this one’s all about Deep Blue Sea. “Wait,” I hear you cry, unable to conceal the slight crack of excitement in your voice, “the 1999 shark-infested masterpiece from Renny Harlin? Surely there are already dozens, nay, hundreds of podcasts already devoted to such an opus of cinema.” Yes, that very film, but no, somehow, inexplicably, despite the film-centric podcast world already overflowing far beyond any reasonable degree of saturation, there are no such shows devoted to the film Roger Ebert once described as “a neat package of terror, sharks and special effects.”
So what is this delightful new podcast, and where can I listen to it, and is it any good? Well, firstly, stop asking so many questions, calm down, we’re not going anywhere. The show is called Deep Blue Sea – The Podcast, and you can find it pretty much everywhere podcasts are found including iTunes. Here’s a link to it on spreaker: https://www.spreaker.com/show/deep-blue-sea-the-podcast. At the time of writing there are already three episodes out, with more released every Tuesday. The show is hosted by me and Mark Hofmeyer from Movies, Films & Flix, and every week we discuss the next DVD chapter of the film Deep Blue Sea. There’s 33 chapters in the film, so there’ll initially be 33 episodes, followed by some bonus ones on the straight-to-streaming sequels etc. We will not, I repeat, WE WILL NOT, be covering the sequels chapter by chapter, because whilst I haven’t seen them at all, just mentioning their existence makes Mark sad.
It’s not just going to be me and Mark, we have guests, preferably ones who agree on the near-perfect status of the film’s quality, and as for is the show any good, I’ll leave that up to you to determine but I for one am having a very fun time delving into Deep Blue Seas delightful depths. I hope you give us a listen!
