Greetings, Programs!

The Uprising has just begun, and even though TRON: Uprising has yet to return for a second season, USERS and PROGRAMS are talking about the possibilities all over the GRID. This episode of TRON: Decoding the Grid is totally devoted to communications received via the I/O TOWER from listeners.

This week, ASTRAICA from UNITED TRON ARMY is back to talk about an idea for another animated TRON series to continue the story we saw in TRON: Uprising.  KingJ has submitted a thorough story treatment for a possible (and plausible) series set during and after the events of TRON: Legacy called, TRON: Resurrection.  This story treatment is worth reading and discussing, and we do both!

Plus, some questions came to our friend Santiago from Spain when he was rewatching “Terminal” again.  It just goes to show you that this series bears repeat views and allows you to see new things every time.  JAMIE answers our call for technical assistance in dealing with Santiago’s questions. 

You can join in the fun on TRON: Decoding the Grid by contacting us at podcast@TechnoRetroDads.com, tweeting to @TRON_DTG, or leaving a voicemail at (209) 878-7323.  Don’t forget to let Disney know how much you appreciated the series and that you want more.

Greetings, Programs!

The title of this episode of TRON: Uprising is TERMINAL, but does it refer to the virus infecting TRON or the premature and sudden end of this incredible animated series?

In hopes of answering this question, SPENCER and ASTRAICA return to talk TRON: Uprising with SHAZ & SHUA, where it takes a brave person to stand against oppression, and perhaps an even braver one to JOIN THE CRAZY!

Just when the UPRISING had begun, the season (and so far the series) is over. But the concept lives on and more stories are yet to be told. Not only do we talk about the visually stunning animation and exciting story, but everyone chimes in about what could possibly come next. 

Tell us what you think about the series and your hopes for what could happen next -- contact us at podcast@TechnoRetroDads.com or @TRON_DTG, or you can leave a voicemail at (209) 878-7323.  Don’t forget to let Disney know how much you appreciated the series and that you want more.

CYRUS is back, and he is determined to make life difficult for BECK. Deceptions abound, trust is challenged, friends are betrayed, and hope is nearly lost by the end of this penultimate episode of the first season of TRON: Uprising.

MARA believes her eyes instead of her head and heart. ZED thinks CYRUS is one of the coolest PROGRAMS in town. BECK confronts TRON about hiding the truth from him. ABLE attempts to be the voice of reason and a helping hand -- and pays for it.

JAMIE and CRAIG are back to join SHAZ & SHUA for a discussion about deception, free will, and the direction TRON: Uprising seems to be headed. (And the resultant discussion is three times as long as the episode itself!) 

Download now and hear for yourself why TRON: Uprising is the best television program that has yet to be renewed for a second season.

15 TRON: Uprising "Rendezvous"

Greetings, Programs!

PAIGE and BECK finally have their first date, and what did they do?  Jumped out of a LIGHT CHOPPER together -- how romantic!  Their second date was fraught with more dangers, however, when both of them were arrested by PAIGE’s maniacal coworker PAVEL. 

MEGHAN from HIGH ADVENTURE gets on the GRID with SHAZ & SHUA for a jump into this sordid tale of a RENDEZVOUS gone sour where PAIGE shows us that you need to keep your wits about you when your coworker is a power-hungry PSYCHOPATH.

Greetings, Programs!

KELLER has escaped, but TESLER wants her back.  After all, she destroyed all the work she had done for him when she left.  All of ARGON CITY is on the alert for this defector, so she has to get out of town...fast!

Nearly all of this episode takes place on the SILVER STREAK, which is the other name for the ARGON CITY EXPRESS.  The high stakes and fast pace of this episode keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire twenty-two minutes of some of the best animation you have ever seen on television!  But the real story boils down to the growing friendship between BECK and PAIGE, two PROGRAMS on opposite sides of the OCCUPATION debate who start to see that there is more to the other than politics.

Can an episode of TRON: Uprising be fantastic even without TRON or the TRON SUIT?  We think so.  KERMMIT joins SHAZ and SHUA this week to talk about the sixteenth episode of TRON: Uprising.

Texting while driving is illegal.  Driving while deciding on your hair color should also be illegal. 
YES!  BIT agrees entirely.

The real danger is the preoccupation of the OCCUPATION with taking total control of all PROGRAMS!  TESLER has another plan to protect his positional power in ARGON CITY and it is turning everything orange.

Will MARA get back to normal?  Will ZED ever grow up?  Will KELLER get away in the end?  Listen in and find out as ARMANDO joins SHUA and SHAZ for a discussion of TRON: Uprising STATE OF MIND.

TRON LIVES!
And the word is all over ARGON CITY, thanks to the Jovial Tricksters who want to be a part of the big time and take on TESLER and his forces for thrills and to show off their skills.  

BECK wants to recruit the fearless team of three in his stand against the minions of CLU, but when he finds out that one of them is MARA, he gets more than a little concerned.

SHAZ and SHUA are joined this week by RUSS, whose talents and techniques can be seen in an Atari 2600 mod here: http://mods.xkill.net/gallery/TRON_2600/index.html

The Inquisition continues as both DYSON and the Stranger seek information and an answer to the lingering dilemma of whether PROGRAMS are limited to their programming or if they can surpass their original design.  For us, it becomes a question of free will versus destiny when JOVIAL JAY from Jedi Journals on ForceCast.net and Green Justice and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. CASE FILES on RandomChatter and ASTRAICA from #UnitedTronArmy join in the discussion on this episode of TRON: Decoding the Grid.

The Renegade is relegated to a droll day at work when MARA is put in charge at the garage because ABLE is in the outlands battling GRID BUGS with his buddy TRON.

You knew ABLE could not sit still once he knew for sure that BECK was the Renegade.  He will do his best to protect his workers at the garage, whether they are BECK, ZED, MARA, or LINK. 

In the meantime, MARA gets an opportunity to show her worth when PAVEL comes downtown for some TANK tune-ups. 

HUNTER and JAMIE join SHAZ and SHUA for a look at the TRON: Uprising episode: We Both Know How This Ends.

Greetings, Programs!

The Propaganda Machine is at work, ably twisting the events occurring in ARGON CITY to place blame on the RENEGADE, though the RENEGADE has not derezzed any citizens of ARGON.  Can we say the same about TESLER and his SENTRIES and SOLDIERS?

Wake up, PROGRAMS!  The curfew is all about control, not our safety.  Do not simply accept what TESLER tells you on the big-screen RECOGNIZERS; think for yourselves!

This week, friend and guest Craig and long-time listener Armando join in the discussion of TRON: Uprising GROUNDED.
