You thought the apocalypse would be funny and fun, but along comes “Cargo” to punch you in the gut and make you glad we’re not there… yet.
This podcast is her only hope. And her greatest threat.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Never have I seen such a sophisticated zombie movie. Leave it to the Australians to keep things classy. And how smart of them to import one of the finest Brits for this movie, Martin Freeman. Aka, the man that is in everything. Or, as he is known in my condo, the poor man’s Jim Halpert.
If you are a new listener to the PaNcast, be aware there are spoilers and expletives ahead! We break down the movie, go through a summary, and offer analysis, trivia, arbitrary awards, reviews, ratings, fanfiction, and more!
”Zombies take over Australia, and things went awry.” – Carnage’s Five-Second Summary
Unable to keep his family safe afloat on a boat, Andy first loses his wife, Kay (Wentworth shout out), when she goes to scavenge from what she thinks is an empty boat. Then while trying to get Kay to a hospital, he runs off the road and blacks out, during which Kay turns entirely and ends up biting Andy.
Luckily, in Australia, they are prepared and have it down to the minute as to when you will turn. Andy spends the next forty-eight hours trying to get his baby, Rosie, to safety with the help of a young Aboriginal girl, Thoomi.
Make sure to check out Cargo on Netflix before listening, so you aren’t spoiled like a posh zombie. Then push play to get all the posh tea.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
Here at We Mostly Podcast at Night, we love learning new things. In this episode, we learn that Henry Rollins is Chaos’ spirit animal. And while we haven’t met him, we assume this character is very much Henry Rollins IRL. But here is what we don’t know; was he a fallen angel or a cannibal vampire (isn’t a cannibal vampire kind of redundant)?
HE NEVER DIED (EPISODE 248)
Jack is a man (or something) who just wants to play his bingo, drink his blood to keep his bloodlust at bay, and just mind his own damn business.
Unfortunately, his way of living is first derailed by interfering in his blood supplier getting beaten up by loan sharks and then by the arrival of his surprise daughter (whom he knows nothing about). He meets her for the first time, the product of his relationship from nineteen years ago.
She just wants to get to know her dad. But the loan sharks have something else in mind, kidnapping her to get revenge on Jack.
Make sure to check out He Never Died on Netflix before listening so you aren’t spoiled like the blood that spilled all over the floor. Then check out this episode to get all the gory details.
