Supercontext: Casino Royale, by Ian Fleming (with guest Van Jensen)

Together with guest Van Jensen, we dissect the original James Bond source material. We look at Ian Fleming’s life and possible wish fulfillment, as well as how he wrote and published this post-World War II spy story. And of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t also discuss Bond’s misogyny and nationalistic fantasizing.

Supercontext: Millennium, Seasons 1 – 3

Was this 1990s serial killer television drama about the end of the world? Or was it about having empathy for our fellow humans? Chris Carter (X-Files) created it after watching Se7en, but over the course of its three seasons Millennium shifted and changed, until unfortunately it was cancelled.

Supercontext: Miami Blues

Based on a hard-boiled novel by Charles Willeford, this sweaty, sultry film has us questioning hedonism and the struggle between order and chaos. Between writer/director George Armitage, a very shirtless Alec Baldwin and killer performances by Jennifer Jason Leigh and Fred Ward… we’ve got plenty to talk about.
