In this episode, Welcome To The Party Pal celebrates — once again — Station Eleven, the post-apocalyptic fiction limited series created by Patrick Somerville based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Emily St. John Mandel. A post-apocalyptic saga spanning multiple timelines, Station Eleven tells the stories of survivors of a devastating flu as they attempt to rebuild and reimagine the world anew while holding on to the best of what’s been lost.
Throughout this episode hosts Michael Shields and Chris Thompson dissect the differences between Emily St. John Mandel’s deeply affecting novel and Patrick Sommerville’s aggressive, impressive adaptation. They applaud how Mandel’s work stimulates readers to celebrate all the technological marvels that they are gifted with today, as her potent novel displays clearly what it would be like if they are all taken away. They discuss what might be next for the Station Eleven Universe, the brilliant team behind the television series, Star Trek’s connection to Station Eleven, and so much more.
