223 | Underworld: Blood Wars (2016)

Happy Halloween! Michael, Rob, Pax, and Becky finish the Underworld films with a visit to the ice vampires as they talk about whether Blood Wars is a satisfying conclusion to the series.


  1. I think you and your panel put a lot more thought into this series than it reasonably deserved.

    About the only thing I am curious about is whether the initial scripts were formulaic as could be and just had {insert clever concept here} to be ignored later or if said scripts were possibly more complex and potentially developing the concepts and were later clipped or scaled back because the producers wanted more action and formula to fit what they thought their audience would be.

    1. Putting more thought into things than they deserve is my purpose in life. :D

      I'd love to read a good oral history of the making of the series. One of the things I love most about it is how (for the most part) each movie builds on and adds to what came before. There's a Making It Up As We Go feel that I like for this series. I hate it in Star Wars Episodes 7-9, but it's perfect for something cheesy like Underworld.
