I would be truly magnificent if you came over to the History of England Facebook Group – to vote on the score you think Zodiac should have, and give your views on the film.

The Zodiac Interview with Jim Dunbar

This was the show where apparently the Zodiac killer called into a TV show. It was later proven to be a hoax.

  1. I have a comment about the use of the spelling of technicolour in the podcast title. The Cambridge English Dictionary says, for a noun, the proper spelling is the trademarked word Technicolor, capitalized without the u. If it is used as an adjective, then lower case is correct, but even in the UK, the primary spelling is without the u. The spelling of the word with the u is secondary. So I think you should change the title. Just my 2 cents.

    1. I’m impressed with the research! I will put the matter to the Board (Wolf). Though given we have done the logo, and there is a secondary use of the word as a noun with the ‘u’ I think it’s going to be twmpting to stay….

  2. There is no secondary use of the noun having a u. It is supposed to be capitalized and no u. Only the adjective is secondarily allowed a u and your logo usage is not an adjective. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that Technicolor contacts you about this if they happen to see your logo. But they won’t find out from me.

  3. I have not watched the movie, but I was very impressed with the discussion. Intrigued.

    I like the series. I sometimes however get confused about the scoring that takes place after each review…either the categories are changed or the order that they are scored is sometimes different or the criteria/method of weighting used to make a score changes but I don’t get bent about it since it’s a “fun” activity.

  4. I guess I’ll be the first one to actually comment on the film/movie instead of the word colour/color.

    I’ve seen this film a few times now and I think the first time I watched it, I was pretty confused as there was so much uncertainty, I probably was expecting a whodunnit. But when I saw it again, the uncertainty was exactly what intrigued me, the inability to fully understand something. This leads so many people to indeed to specialize in Jack the Ripper or the Zodiac, etc. To me this seems a pointless hobby, especially over 100 years after the facts.

    This movie is a good contrast with the typical Hercule Poirot story where the sleuth is so sure of his capabilities to finds the perpetrator. We all know that some cases never get resolved (despite the huge interest in those podcasts and surely they must run out of cases soon, right?). But as time progresses and most of the world goes on with their daily lives, the three main characters get sucked into this abyss of uncertainty.
