Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review Prime Video’s adaptation of William Gibson’s The Peripheral.

The Peripheral is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Based on William Gibson’s unsettling novel from 2014, The Peripheral centers around a talented young woman named Flynne Fisher who’s stuck in a tiny town in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the year 2032, where she scrapes by playing difficult levels of VR video games for the elite with her brother, Burton. When she beta-tests a new cutting-edge game, it opens a portal to an alternate version of London 70 years in the future. Fisher is intrigued with this strange transported reality and becomes addicted to returning inside its mysteries to figure out exactly who created the trans-dimensional rift, the dangerous nature of her link to a girl called Aelita, and how it relates to Fisher’s own fate.

The Peripheral was created by Scott B. Smith and stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Gary Carr, Jack Reynor, Eli Goree, Charlotte Riley, JJ Feild, Adelind Horan, Alex Hernandez, Austin Rising, and T’Nia Miller.
