I am one of those guys who can find ways to infuse pop culture references into a lot of conversations. Someone will say something, and it can trigger a line or scene from a movie in my head. At that moment, I immediately have to share it. People who know me well are used to this behavior, and people who listened to Season One heard a variety of pop culture references as well.
As I write this, the first episode of Season Two is about 95% complete. Just in that first episode, there are nods to Monty Python, Iron Man and Star Wars. Those who remember the end of Season One might recall Doc telling Rebecca that he thinks she needs "a Jarvis." If you watch the Marvel movies, you can probably guess the Iron Man reference. Think about that, and then consider how it might work if Doc decided to test it during an actual Crimson Crane mission.
I love Monty Python, and I found ways to throw in some nods to the movies and the Flying Circus television series. If you are well versed in both, you'll easily pick up on the references.
If you love Star Wars as much as me, you will also get some nods to the trilogies.
Along the way, you might also catch some random pop culture references to:
Captain America Civil War
The IT Crowd
and this song:
I hope you enjoy catching the references as you listen to the second season of The Crimson Files.
