The Goggler Podcast #150: DMZ

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review HBO’s adaptation of Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli’s DMZ. Is it any good? Does the Ava DuVernay produced limited series stay true to the comics? Why is it only four episodes?

Leaping off the pages of the popular DC graphic novel into the visual landscape of a dangerous and distorted Manhattan, DMZ follows intrepid medic Alma Ortega on her tireless, eight-year search for her missing son in a near-future America embroiled in a bitter civil war. With no other options, Alma negotiates her way into the only place she hasn’t been able to look: Manhattan – now a lawless demilitarised zone overrun by rival factions vying for power as a race for control plays out between ruthless community leaders Parco Delgado and Wilson Lin. While Alma’s harrowing quest thrusts her into the middle of this dangerous no man’s land, she unexpectedly emerges as a vital source of something needed most in the DMZ, which is hope.

DMZ was created by Roberto Patino and stars Rosario Dawson, Benjamin Bratt, and Hoon Lee. Ava DuVernay directs the first episode.
