"If you just wanna hear the Altered Carbon part of the podcast, skip to 33 minutes 14 seconds." --George Don't worry. We certainly don't go out on a high note. As George and Kevin attempt to remove some potty humor from the show, we visit the cult film JOHN DIES AT THE END. Which, yes, was fantastic and we both loved. So, we also talk about the shit that was the Netflix series ALTERED CARBON. Kevin's hopes of a decent adaptation are dashed and George revels in the idea of what could have...

"Is this a documentary?" --Kevin Guillermo Del Toro has served us up the perfect mix of Swamp Thing and Amelie that we've all been waiting for. With a combo like that how could you possibly go wrong? Well, according to one of us you cannot and according to another one of us it just doesn't matter. Join us for the masterpiece that is our low-level aggression at each other over THE SHAPE OF WATER. Enjoy and keep coming back. BIBLIOGRAPHY: The Shape of Water, 2018, dir. by Guillermo Del...

"What would you do if you knew this was the last night of the world?" For our Thanksgiving special Busy Dad George does ANOTHER reading of a great Ray Bradbury short. This time around it's THE LAST NIGHT OF THE WORLD. What better way to be grateful for all that we have, than to be reminded that likely in another universe there is a version of you that is standing in a post-apocalyptic rubble just trying not the break his glasses.
