Wumi learns about the Psychic life of Danny Torrence, Deeby can't stop referencing The Simpsons, and Tam really doesn't want his pitch to turn into a Superhero film.

This week Deeby gives the term “star-crossed lovers” an all new meaning in his Romeo and Juliet-inspired pitch.

We’re all looking forward to the Lego Batman Movie, right? This week we get ourselves ready by pitching our own toy-based films. Deeby rolls the dice with ‘Snakes and Ladders’, Wumi gets personal with ‘Beanie Babies’ and Tam is down with modern kids in ‘Hatchimals’. What toy do you think could make a good film franchise?

With only two days to write his plot, Tam’s only got the opening scenes, but Deeby and Wumi help plan the rest of the story. What other films should we pitch at the last second?

11/7/2016

Tam looks back at Doctor Strange’s 1963 comic book debut in this week’s episode, and tries to turn an unrelated story in the same issue into Marvel’s next big franchise. But-- he hasn’t read the comic. With Wumi’s help, a two line synopsis for ‘We Search The Stars!’ and a bunch of nameless characters, can Tam make a good story? Sort of.
