FANS: Zach Thompson of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return and The Gauntlet joins us to talk about pro wrestling fandom and his work as a wrestling commentator and ringside interviewer for the Chicago-based Freelance Wrestling and Resistance Wrestling circuits. We also talk about his favorite cult films and how they have weathered painful remakes. Thanks a lot, Tim Burton!
FILMS: It's Rowdy Roddy Piper in John Carpenter's memorable They Live (1988)! The gang earnestly discusses the messages decoded by the Hoffman Lenses and what messages we might see in 2019. Also covered: Piper as the face vs. the heel, Frank and Nada's epic street brawl, the film's basic score, and our favorite one-liners (not all of them are about bubblegum either).
FINDS: We discuss what we've been watching lately: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, The Boys, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, The Peanut Butter Falcon, The Banana Splits Movie, The Dead Don't Die, and more!
