iddled with blasphemy and a humble (but vicious) sense of humor, Double Feature is an experiment in film watching. Each show both hosts pick a movie they've seen a hundred times that the other's never watched, and then view both movies back to back. Uninterested in actually reviewing the films, they discuss what makes them notable against the pleathra of others they've seen.
