"Here are my terms: Goest thou to hell, and swiftly please, and there may Asmodaeus himself suckle from your diseased teat!"

Welcome to the prelude to Spooky-Thon! In honor of the release of Rob Zombie's Munsters film, we're talking about yet another classic horror-adjacent television show turned movie adaptation. We discuss Tim Burton's sordid past, the film's inability to appeal to anyone it intended to, and Brett's Dad gives us so much content!

“I hope no one minds but I have no intention of facing this sober."

Our good friend and original fan, author, filmmaker, podcaster, and genuinely nice guy J.P. Leck returns once again to blast off into space... only this time with fewer truckers and 100% more ice pirates! We discuss the oddly-stacked cast, how this film doesn’t know what it wants to be, and how this is just a retelling of A New Hope, actually?

“It’s been swell. But the swelling has gone down.”

This week, we’re going head first into full chaos with our good friend Tucker! We discuss what happened to Lori Petty, the devotion to the source material, and we fully embrace the randomness by going off on even more tangents than usual!

“What a pity that Bilbo didn't kill that vile creature when he had the chance." 

"Yes, it was pity. Pity and mercy."

 

We’re back and going after fandoms one again because we just can’t help ourselves! This time, in honor of a couple new fantasy shows, we’re talking the one that started it all! We discuss the puzzling minor changes made to the story, the X-rated history of Bakshi, and Brett decides it’s time to admit his dark secret to the world!

“You know what scares me the most? When it happens, when it comes over me...and I totally lose control, I like it.”

It’s smashin’ time! In honor of this week’s release of the new "She-Hulk" series on Disney+, we’re giving you a Hulkamania two-parter! Up first, we're discussing Ang Lee’s vision for the mean green hero. We talk about inspirations for the character, the reassessment this movie has gotten recently, and we finally crown the true patron saint(s?) of the podcast!

"I think I know what that glitch is, Jetson, and I'm looking at him!"

Between the recent (or impending) birth of George Jetson and the recent cancelation of the almost-finished Scoob! sequel, it seems like the perfect time to get into a failed franchise starter about America's favorite space age family! We talk about our history with Hanna-Barbera properties, our thoughts on flavored water, and many more tangential thoughts!

"Man is more frightening than Gojira."

The time has come for us to conclude our 'Big in Japan' theme month and it doesn't get much bigger than 2016's Shin Godzilla! And who better to join us than our friend, filmmaker and former podcast host Samuel Dumas!

Together, we dig into this movie's diverse and updated themes, the evolution of Godzilla for a 21st century audience, and have a spirited debate about the Resident Evil franchise of all things!
