Screener Squad: Fallout

Fallout Series Review


Hey there vault dwellers. I know it’s been a bit much being confined to a Vault-Tec vault for over 2 centuries, but we think it’s time that you zipped up your jumpsuit and wander out to the Wasteland. There’s raiders, rad roaches, and these cute little things called Yao Guai (basically giant, mutated black bears with a constant stick up their ass). So take that vault-schooled brain of yours out in the Wasteland and make shit happen. On the way you’ll meet a Knight of The Brotherhood of Steel and a bounty hunting ghoul, hopefully you have enough time in between shooting each other to make peace… or blow each other’s heads off… the Wasteland does not care. While this could be just talking about any one of the popular RPG video games from this series, now we’re discussing the new and shiny Amazon Prime Video live-action adaptation of them. Starring Ella Purnell as Lucy, a Vault dweller who has made her way into the wasteland for the first time determined to get back her father (Kyle MacLachlan) from raiders who took him. With our review, watch out for Marco, Kimberly, and Chad… they were assimilated into a raider group and don’t respond to their names anymore… but if you got jet and caps, they’ll find a way to “borrow” it from you.

Chad Halvorsen (Screener Squad)

Chad Halvorsen currently resides in Milwaukee, WI, where he produces and edits commercials, films, and everything in between. He was always a fan of film/television growing up, spending days in the Summer, making (terrible) home movies with his brothers. Little did he know that passion would carry on into adulthood. Since 2006, Chad has worked for several agencies in various departments. Shooting, producing, editing, production management, directing, and when forced to, writing copy. In 2015, Chad decided to take the big leap and become a freelancer. Since then, he’s produced content for Lyft, AT&T, Target, and Discovery Network. His passion lies in entertaining people, making them feel better, even for a moment. All the pain and suffering of this business is worth it, if even just one person views his work. Chad is a frequent podcaster, most notably posing as a co-host for the podcast “The Film Illogical Society.”



Marco Noyola (Digital Noise, Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad, Audio Editor)

By day, Marco is a mild-mannered office worker, but by night he is a mild-mannered movie watcher. He does other mild-mannered stuff too.

Kimberly Brown (Highly Suspect Reviews)

Kimberly wants to live in a world filled with blue telephone boxes, speedsters, and ice dragons but through an ironic twist of fate, she’s stuck in this reality where these wondrous things only exist on page or film. Kim’s perpetual desire to consume sci-fi and fantasy media as a teen led her to the study of illustration/design at university to better understand its creation. Currently an Austin transplant, when she’s not wearing her critic hat you can find her pretending to like hiking, fielding questions about her hair or maybe even enjoying a local brew at the nearest dive bar.
