Binary/Pursuit – The Crichton Cast


After a bit of an unplanned hiatus, the Crichton Cast crew is back!

This week, we’re on the case to investigate the John Lange penned thriller of a novel Binary! We also compare and contrast with it’s film adaptation, and Michael Crichton directorial debut, Pursuit.

Listen as we discuss the differences and similarities between the novel written under Crichton’s “Med School Years” pseudonym, and the film for which Crichton almost wrote the screenplay, and did direct.

We talk about the villain/hero interaction, the weapon, the plot and plan, the action, the drama and of course the minor goofs we think we’ve found.

This was a fun filled book/movie and we hope that our commentary is as filled with excitement.

So get your antidote syringe strapped to your arm, sit back and enjoy the wild ride that is Binary and Pursuit!

If you are reading this you must be a fan of Michael Crichton just as we are. Whether you love the science in his writing, the adventurous places it takes you or just fell in love with dinosaurs on the big screen we will have something for you.

Every two weeks, in a mini-series format Steve and Eric will discuss a book of Michael Crichton’s which was made into a movie. Compare both mediums, discuss the good and bad, our takes on what worked and interesting facts. Listen in and discuss with us!
