Greetings, Programs!

The Story of TRON depends on music as much as it does on computer-generated special effects.  Since 1982, music has been created in tribute to TRON and/or in the stylings of TRON.  In this episode, SHAZ and SHUA put some pieces of music together to tell the story of TRON.

TEKFORCE joins the party with his own addition to the GRID, “Stuck in a Bit World” from the upcoming album The Lightcycle Chronicles.  You can find TEKFORCE on Twitter @teknique45 and on the album Nerdcore Emulation Station (NES) on Bandcamp.

Also featured in this episode is a new album covering the original Wendy Carlos soundtrack with a guitar-rich twist.  STEMAGE released the album PRIORITY ONE: The Music of Tron last summer.  Some of the tracks from this album have been heard on previous episodes of TRON: Decoding the Grid.  Check out STEMAGE on Twitter and pick up the album on iTunes.

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.
