Pop Culture Role Call is a weekly podcast that reviews television and movies from different characters’ perspectives. Each week our geek panel (panel of hosts) watches the same TV episode or movie each assigned their own character role. They will only watch scenes that their character is present in, leaving them with only part of the bigger picture.

Hello and welcome to the torture episode! Wash (the best character) puts his foot down this week and DEMANDS to go on a mission with Mal. Turns out, he is feeling a little jealous of Mal and Zoe's ability to bond over war stories. One thing leads to another and both our boys find themselves being electrocuted by Niska and his goons. Thanks for list…
 
Hello, lovely listeners! This week, Mal and crew are up shit creek due to some mechanical failures (don't blame Kaylee). In fiction we are trying to survive and doing an... OK job. In reality, this is one of them "flashback episodes" where we get vignettes about how Mal met his original crew. Thanks for listening!…
 
This week, Captain Reynolds and Mrs. Captain Reynolds (Saffron) deal with a rocky first day of matrimony. Partly because the good captain doesn't 100% remember getting married, partly because Saffron keeps kissing and/or kicking the crew. But, hey, every marriage takes a bit of work, ya know? Thanks for listening!…
 
Time to learn a bit more about the renegade siblings, Simon and River! The brother/sister genius duo find themselves kidnapped this week by a town of folk needin' a doctor. Which is pretty chill, all things considered. Unfortunately, the chill doctorin' turns into a witch trial quicker n' you can slap a cow. Thanks for listening!…
 
Howdy listeners! I wish we could give you a vague overview of the main plot for this week's episode. Unfortunately, though, none of us were there. Mal got cut by a sword and Kaylee got a sweet pink dress. Something about a duel? Anyway, the rest of us had a pretty uneventful time on the ship playing "cards" for chore coupons. Thanks for listening!…
 
This week on Firefly Mal and the crew do one of those classic "train jobs" you hear so much about. I wish I could tell you some fun specifics, but we watch the show in kind of a weird way. All we know is that the moral grey of the job got a little too real and the crew is about to make some powerful enemies. More than we already have. Thanks for li…
 
Hello and welcome to episode 2 of Firefly! Larry the Lawman is being a real jerk and gets tossed. Jane pushes the boundaries of him and Mal's work/friend relationship, Book has a crisis of faith, and River wakes up in a strange metal box. Luckily, we have a great pilot who can fly this ship under duress, because we are definitely under duress. Than…
 
This week the gang says a heartfelt goodbye to the sestras. Thank you to everyone who joined us as we took a journey through Orphan Black! Your support was amazing and your finale questions were perfect. We hope you will join us next week as we kick off our next show, Firefly! Thanks for listening, as always.…
 
And with this, Orphan Black comes to an end (minus the season AND series wrap-up episodes). Helena welcomes her two beautiful, sand-eating boys into the world. Sarah looks to her future as a mother and a sistra, trying to order her life now that Ms. S isn't in it. There is too much to cover in one paragraph so we will discuss it in length next Wedn…
 
Howdy, listeners! It's the penultimate episode of season 5 (we think) and the penultimate episode of the whole show (most likely). We don't know how, or why, but Ms. S never made it past the opening credits. Luckily, Sarah has broken Helena out of The Dyad and if anyone can dispense revenge/justice it is her. Thanks for listening!…
 
Welcome to season 5 episode 8, folks! Everyone's favorite brother is back from doing recon and is ready to present his new gallery, themed on the sistras. Hopefully, Sarah and Ms. S can figure out their drama before Felix's art suffers because of the distraction. Now, we just need to get Kira back (again, again..) Thanks for listening!…

Along the way, Sarah and Helaina are reunited and share a heartfelt moment. Meanwhile, Cosima is sneaking around a spooky island and meeting a "bear" with our friend Mud. Thanks for listening!…
 
Welcome to season 5 episode 3 of Orphan Black! It's a much-needed and long-awaited Alison episode this week and we even get some juicy flashbacks. Alison has a lot of skeletons in her closet. That is partly a metaphor but mostly just a cold hard fact. For better or for worse, Alison is steadying herself and setting her sights on action, ready to br…
 
Season 5 episode 2 is here! Sarah is scrambling to keep Kira out of Rachel's grasp but the walls are closing in. All of the sistras are being trapped or manipulated in one way or another, except for maybe Helaina? We don't quite know where she and Donnie are at the moment. On the bright side, Cosima has a cure in her body and is rubbing shoulders w…
 
And here we are in season 5 episode 1! Wow stuff is gettin' kind of weird. Sarah is limping, bleeding and beaten, through a strange forest. But, she isn't alone. Alison is abducted by Art's terrible and rude new "partner". Meanwhile, Cosima seems to be a little drunk on a cool evil-genius science mystery. Thanks for listening!…
 
It's time for the season 4 wrap-up! Big thanks to all the fans who submitted questions for us to answer. Next week begins the fifth and maybe or maybe not final season of Orphan Black. As a quick note: the most recent allegations against Joss Whedon came out between recording and releasing this episode. We fully support and stand with Charisma, Ray…
 
Season 4 episode 10 has come and gone! It turns out, the show didn't end so you got us for a couple more months, folks. Alison has a phone call and a gun. Cosima has the prospect of a cure dangled in front of her like a carrot on a stick only to be pulled away at the last second. Meanwhile, Sarah is on science island with a gun, an attitude, and a …

Cosima is on a spooky science island making a baby. Meanwhile, Alison is having a crisis of faith, trying to find stability with her recently incarcerated husband. Thanks for liste…
 
It's season 4 episode 7 and everyone is feeling pretty low. Sarah is on a bender after the Kendall travesty, trying to find comfort in her past. Alison is struggling to open up to Donnie, which gets even harder now that he is in "police custody". Cosima is stopped mere seconds before making a medical mistake with the promise of Delphine details. Th…
 
Orphan Black season 4 episode 6 is in the bag and comes with another casualty. Sarah, with the support of Cosima and Kendall, makes a play that breaks bad.

It's season 4 episode 3 this week and Sarah's little cheek friend is causing quite a stir. Cosima and Scott are doing their best to provide answers but Sarah needs to go straight to the source.

Hello and welcome to season 4 episode 2! Aileen, watching as the dearly departed Beth, is back! Turns out, this is where the hard sci-fi has been hiding. Sarah finds out she is the unfortunate owner of some futuristic cheek technology. Cosima has moved her operation into a comic book shop's basement. While Allison is dipping her toe back into the m…
 
Time for the clone club to break into Orphan Black season 4! Aileen snuck her way into the podcast this week to talk all things Beth. It's a flashback episode full of little details and body modifications. Plus, some kinda cheek alien-thing? Sounds like season 4 is about to go some places and we are here for it. Thanks for listening!…
 
Take a break with the gang as Clone Club becomes the Scooby Gang once again. This week, our hosts sit down for something a little different. They didn't watch anything. But, they read 4 issues of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic series! Hope you enjoy! Back to Orphan Black next week for season 4 episode 1.…

Today, the Clone Crew break into season 3 of Orphan Black! Y'all like exposition and complicated webs of intrigue? I hope so, because that's what we are workin' with. Sarah plays Rachel, Allison plays Sarah, and Cosima gets her heart broken. All the while, project Castor is likely working to put us in the dirt. Thanks for listening!…
 
It's season 2 episode 10 this week! My gut tells me this is the finale...it feels like a finale. We shoot pencils out of MacGyver-esq weapons, have a dance party, and we meet our male clone counterparts. Hopefully this new woman of the cabal will shed some light in season 3. Thanks for listening!
