BOOMTRON PODCAST – PRESSING PLAY ON NETFLIX ORIGINALS
In Episode 7, the Boomtron crew adds a new feature to the podcast…Netflix News. In this section, Damon shares some news about some possible big plans on the horizon for Netflix.
Around the 7:00 mark, Amy and Diego give their spoiler free, quick reviews of some of the shows they’ve watched on their own over the past few weeks. Amy has some fiery love to share about The Dragon Prince and the Dragons Rescue Riders musical movie, debates Diego about whether Animal Crackers was all it was cracked up to be, and, (for the first and last time), declares Damon to have been right about How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast). Diego shares how he felt tethered to Connected, explains how he tried to recreate Street Food Latin America in his own kitchen, declares that love is love is love as he explores Love on the Spectrum, and bonds with Damon over their shared love for Transformers.
In Spoilerville, the team discusses how they weren’t all feeling the love for The Kissing Booth 2 (28:14), debates as to whether a show has to look good to be good as they converse about Cursed (36:57), consider the credibility of Get Even (44:01), and finally, Amy and Diego have a difficult time not talking for 57 years about Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy (49:42).
At 1:05:00, Amy and Diego chat about some shows they watched that aren’t new, but might be something You Might Have Missed. Amy is all about Glitch Techs, while Diego is more interested in the Netflix trilogy that is currently ending with Offering to the Storm.
Finally, the crew look to the future, and discuss what shows they will be watching in the next few weeks. (1:08:23)
Meet The HOSTS
They watch a lot of Netflix
Amy’s Netflix tastes span the spectrum. From horror (Haunting of Hill House) to superhero (Umbrella Academy) to teen (Alexa and Katie) to brain candy romance (Holiday in the Wild), Amy just wants to be entertained.
Diego will pretty much dive into any show recommended by friends. However, if he had to pick his Netflix favorites it would have to be superhero related (Raising Dion), sci-fi (Stranger Things), and documentaries (Tiger King). Low key, he will also get sucked into a reality tv show here and then. He believes in the 3 episode theory and will give most shows 3 episodes before deciding if he can finish it or give up on it for another show on his list.
Loves animated shows, but also willing to try thrillers. Really his interests lie in Science Fiction and Fantasy so Netflix shows like Kipo And The Age Of Wonderbeasts and Stranger Things fit the bill. On the other end of the spectrum On My Block is a huge winner.
From Our Listeners
Here is what they had to say about Boomtron Podcast, covering Netflix Original series and movies
Lots of choices on Netflix these days, So what better way to decide than to listen to these two entertaining guys. Light and easy listening about a subscription that almost everyone has access to. Fabulous interaction among the 2. Definitely looking forward to the next podcast so I can decide what my next binge session will be on.
These guys are authentic and enjoy a different range of content which makes this an easy and fun listen. They discuss some content that is new and it’s like overhearing a conversation that you’d like to jump in on, rather than listening to an over-produced broadcast. I’m putting this this on my auto-downloads going forward. Good stuff.
Feels like hangin with friends while listening. Great chemistry between the cast – will definitely be listening again and again
