Two disappointing animation debuts frame a deep conversation about the state of Western animation on this week’s episode of the Mid-Season Replacements. After trying to figure out who exactly the audience for Solar Opposites is for (and why it exists), Randy and Sean are divided on Netflix’s The Midnight Gospel, and its strange mix of pseudo-intellectualism and psychedelic visuals. On the table is everything from life and death, to love and anime… in other words, another typical episode of The Mid-Season Replacements.
Shows discussed: Solar Opposites, The Midnight Gospel
The Mid-Season Replacements Podcast is a weekly show hosted by Goomba Stomp and TV Never Sleeps’ Randy Dankievitch and Sean Colletti, with new episodes debuting every Tuesday evening.
Opening Track: “Curtains” by Ryan Elliott (of Ancient Fears)
