Silver Surfer by Dan Slott and Mike Allred


Carlin recently bought and read the entire Dan Slott and Mike Allred Silver Surfer run from Marvel Comics. And as he was reading it...he knew he would have to share this Doctor Who-like run on the series with Annaliese. And they basically saved their post-reading conversation for this installment of the podcast. Toomey, my podcast player!

The Films of Ed Wood


It's a podcast crossover! After discussing Tim Burton's Ed Wood on a recent episode of Mystery Movie Night, David and Michael decided to watch the three movies talked about in that film: Glen or Glenda, Bride of the Monster, and Plan 9 from Outer Space. Were they as fun as Burton made them look? Or as bad as their reputation? David knows!

Batman (1989)


Annaliese finally watched the 1989 Batman movie. What does she think of this historic comic book film? Does it even mean anything to someone who lives in a world where 10 comic book movies are released each year?

Dragonfly Ripple, Episode 17: Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas and Ernest Saves Christmas


"Ho! Ho! Ho!" everybody! It's the Dragonfly Ripple Holiday Special! Carlin and Michael start the show talking about Christmas movies and TV specials that they grew up with. Which have stood the test of time? Which are still annual must-watches?

Then, when Annaliese and David join in, they discuss a couple of specific Christmas productions from Jim Henson and Ernest P Worrell. And on a special Jetpack Tiger, Dashiell flies solo to talk about the experience of learning The Truth about Santa. There are SPOILERS about the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy as well, so be careful about listening around young ears.

Finally, the gang talks about which nerdy Christmas ornaments they wish existed to hang on their trees.
