To follow up our episode on The Neverending Story, we rewatched The Neverending Story (1984) and an episode of The Neverending Story: The Animated Adventures of Bastian Balthazar Bux (1995). This episode features our brother Patrick! We have a lot of thoughts about these adaptations!
DISCLAIMER: We love fantasy literature and most of our episodes are unflinchingly positive. This is not one of those episodes. This is a highly critical review of Neverending Story-inspired media by three cynical adults who have just spent four straight hours watching a movie and television show made for children. If you do not want to hear grumpy jerks talking about a movie that you love, it's definitely best to skip this one!
(The television show, on the other hand, is a little-watched disaster and is unlikely to be loved by anyone other than our childhood selves. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you've ever seen the show, as we're pretty sure we're alone in this).
