Wolverine: The Long Night: Full Season
September 14, 2018 6:18 AM - Subscribe

Following a string of mysterious deaths in Burns, Alaska, Special Agents Sally Pierce and Tad Marshall arrive to investigate. They soon find there’s more going on than meets the eye. Marvel's first scripted podcast is about one of its most famous characters, but takes its time bringing his voice to the forefront. The Long Night originally came out in early 2018 as a lure to sell Stitcher Premium subscriptions, but was released for free in September.

Any idea what the release schedule is like? I listened to it on Stitcher, but it seems like only the first two episodes were available. Are the rest only for those who sign up?

This article says the remaining eight episodes will be released weekly.

I just don't understand why an ad agency would think that Wolverine would be a good character to sell locked-in rates for a 30-year mortgage.

He's the best there is at what he does. And what he does is advise nervous homeowners on the single biggest purchase of their lives.

I thought about Etrigan's comment when I read this Diesel Sweeties.

People who are into Wolverine are probably at (or past, if we're being totally honest) the part in their lives where they are interested in buying a home.

Incidentally, I'm quite enjoying this. Haven't listened to yesterday's yet (8), but a lot of neat threads. We don't for a second believe Wolverine has murdered the women, but it's giving us some questions to ask about just how much he is responsible for.

Some of it is pretty far fetched (Like the Strawberry kids. Who just leaves feral kids out there to fend for themselves?), but some neat stuff and I like that it's set in the north.

I assume that the Strawberry kids are going to have a Fagin behind them somewhere (presumably the cult, but maybe the crooked-as-hell sheriff?).

I too am enjoying it; I just wonder whether they're going to be able to tie it all together.

At first I thought it was just going to be Bobby behind everything, mostly on # of lines per episode argument, but now that they've revealed this other side of him, I'm not so sure. It is pretty suspicious he called the cult leader "the prophet" though, when others have just been using his actual name iirc.

It took me 8 episodes of thinking "Agent Marshall sounds so familiar" before I finally googled actor Ato Essandoh and realized that he plays Alfredo on Elementary. Crossover squee!

Finally fished this. It was fine, but not super. Not that much Logan in it, which is I guess to be expected.

I finished it. I didn't fish it.
