Greetings, Programs!

What do programs dream during their sleep cycles?  Screen savers, of course! 

This is just a part of what you will learn from Sheldon, SHAZ, and SHUA in this episode of TRON: Decoding the Grid as we tangle with TESLER in this REWARDING episode of TRON: Uprising.  How do you make Programs turn against their neighbors?  Offer them a car, of course! 

SHUA thinks it might be “Let’s Make a Deal” on the GRID.  SHAZ has an unanswered question about an Edgar Allen Poe story.  Sheldon says that Programs see BINARY CODE in front of their eyes instead of the stars most cartoons see.  Listen in and let us know your answers about TRON: Uprising “Reward” (and all the other random things we come up with in our discussions).

Greetings, Programs! 

SHAZ and SHUA invite Kermmit the Frog and the inestimable Steve Glosson from Geek Out Loud! Podcast for a discussion of TRON: Uprising "Price of Power". 

This TRON episode encourages some interesting discussion about many things, even raises the possibility that Mister T may actually refer to TRON. 

OK, well, I made that one up…or did I?

Not a three-hour tour, so to speak, but the results were the same -- the Renegade and Paige have become stranded on an island and have to team-up to get back to Argon City.

In their “isolation”, they have time to consider the hostility between them and the reasons behind it.  We are privileged to discover some tidbits from Paige’s past that show us why she feels a bit “isolated” from just about everyone.  (Who knew she was a musician?  or a Med Program,for that matter?)

What do you think?  Are the ISOs the cause for isolating yourself from your past and the things that make you who you are?

High Adventure lyricist Spencer and trumpeter Meghan the TechnoRetro MOM join SHAZ and SHUA for a WICKED COOL, TOTALLY TUBULAR look at TRON: Uprising “Isolated” on this episode of TRON: Decoding the Grid.

This week, we cover TRON: Uprising “Identity”. 

The identity of the Renegade as well as the future of the Uprising is endangered when an enterprising program swipes Beck's disc off his back and sells it in the "bad part of town" in Argon City.  Jovial Jay returns to help SHAZ & SHUA decode this episode of TRON: Uprising!

The Renegade is in a race against time to save programs and friends when TESLER drills too deeply into Argon City’s energy supply.  Pitted against the imminent destruction of the city and shutting down the drill without harming his friend ZED who has entered an underground race in the tunnels of the grid, Beck has to balance stealth, timing, and every ability to meet his most difficult challenge to date.

Craig Batts and Sheldon Norton join the discussion this week as we get to the heart of “Blackout” in this third episode of TRON: Decoding the Grid.

Greetings, Programs!

The Renegade is getting some attention by CLU and General TESLER while some of Beck’s friends are involved in another adventure of their own.  Both story lines converge in a striking conclusion with some parallel lessons to be learned.

Join SHAZ and SHUA as they are joined by experienced podcaster Jovial Jay as we cover TRON: Uprising’s first two-part arc on TRON: Decoding the Grid.

Why does ZED look at MARA as more than a friend and how does it affect the friendship that they have?

Is PAIGE overly obsessed with the Renegade?  If so, why? 

Why aren’t General TESLER’s soldiers busy keeping the peace and putting a stop to the criminal element in Argon City if CLU’s purpose is to create the “perfect system”?

These are some important questions, and may (or may not) be answered in this installment of TRON: Decoding the Grid!

Greetings, Programs!

Though TRON: Uprising has not been picked up for a second season, we’re still enjoying watching it a second time.  Now that it’s on Netflix, you can catch it, too!

Join SHAZ and SHUA as they are joined by artist Spencer Brinkerhoff III and filmmaker Sheldon Norton for this first episode of TRON: Decoding the Grid and discuss the pilot episode of TRON: Uprising.

CLU has overtaken the Grid in his effort to create the perfect system.  TRON is nowhere to be found.  When GENERAL TESLER comes to Argon City to enforce the will of CLU, an idealistic program stands up to oppression and finds himself an unlikely (and even unwilling) hero.
