Our review of The Space Between Us starring Asa Butterfield, Britt Robertson and Carla Gugino. Synopsis: In this interplanetary adventure, shortly after arriving to help colonize Mars, an astronaut dies while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot – an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing. While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, Gardner begins an online friendship with a street smart girl named Tulsa. When he finally gets a chance to go to Earth, Gardner is eager to experience all of the wonders he could only read about on Mars. But after his explorations begin, scientists discover that Gardner’s organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere. Gardner joins with Tulsa on a race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be, and where he belongs in the universe.
We present the Froggy’s! That’s right is that time of year again where we present our Froggy Awards to the guests we have spoken to in 2016. With the help of our 2012 Golden Grant Award Winner J. Torres. He joins us in studio to help once again to give out the award to our Best Comic Creator Guest of 2016 – aka The Golden Grant Award. Marjorie Liu called in to accept her award and speak with us about Monstress & Han Solo. We also gave out the award for the Best Video Interview of 2016. After much deliberation we gave this award to Dana DeLorenzo who Mr. Green spoke with at Fan Expo 2016 about season 2 of Ash Vs. Evil Dead. And finally the award for our Guest of the Year 2016 went to actor/comedian/podcaster Henry Zebrowski! Henry joined us via phone to accept his award and talk with us about Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell and his podcast The Last Podcast on the Left.
