In the Bit Players’ second group pick episode, the guys take on the Wachowskis’ sci-fi classic The Matrix, discussing not only the impact the film had upon release, but its continued legacy in the film canon. They break down philosophical import in the science fiction genre and the way that the Wachowskis were able to perfectly blend heady questions with flat-out classic action sequences. In addition to the film discussion, the guys play a game of Who Said It with Morpheus and history’s greatest philosophers, plan their own sequel that should have been, and give Anders his time to shine praising the newest installment in the Arkham video game franchise.
