Some delays in the editing process mean this episode went out a week late, but it's a longer than average episode so hopefully that helps make up for the wait. 

This week Trevor and Gabbie talk about Julie Taymor's adaptation of one of Shakespeare's most well-regarded plays, The Tempest. How does changing Prospero to Prospera impact the tale? What of Caliban? And is Ariel really a guy or not? All this and more will be discussed.

There's also some discussion of the Toronto zombie walk and Gabbie's wacky adventures therein.

This week on the show it's been a cold, windy, and rainy week in Toronto so Trevor's staying inside to watch Cabin Fever.  It's got a gaggle of teens going to a cabin in the woods AND a flesh-eating virus? What's not to love?

So keep being all confined to a single indoor location as you listen to Trevor's take on Cabin Fever. Also, there is some zombie discussion.

This week on the show we have a movie that combines everyone's favorite subjects: serial killers, zombie outbreaks, and truck-stop diners!

Join Trevor as he discusses the surprisingly effective horror comedy, DIEner. Also, there's some talk of long weekends and movie marathons in there as well.

For the second time on the show we deal with the menance of man-eating grizzly bears. Bear has far less rocket launchers and decapitated horses but it still might be worth checking out.

And even it's not, Cool as Ice is worth checking out if only to answer the question, "How come Vanilla Ice hasn't had a successful film career?"

We are more than a little behind with this week's episode but we've got a really fun movie to talk about, 2007's Dark Rising

Also listen for special appearances from Luna (we tried to cut her out but she was quite chatty this week and there were a few meows that just couldn't be edited out).

The one lesson everyone learned from Titanic (both the boat and the James Cameron film) is that we certainly don't need another one. 


Unfortunately, the good people at Aslyum Entertainment didn't get the memo and as a result, we've got today's entry, Titanic 2

Gabbie's out of town this week so that means it's time for our much-anticipated (by Trevor) second episode devoted to the Recon trilogy of films.

Last time there were wacky misadventures with werewolves, vampires, and zombies (oh my!) on Caprini. This time there's a mission to blow an alien base on Mezzo. What sort of difficulties are in store for the 34th this time around? 

Listen in to find out!

As promised, we've got something a little different this week. Instead of tackling a single movie, we actually watched the entire Left Behind Trilogy for this week's show. And to make it more of a challenge we decided to watch the entire trilogy in a single evening and record our thoughts immediately after each of the 3 films. 

To assist Trevor in this undertaking, two special guest stars make their first appearance on the podcast, Dave and Matt. 

Will the three of them be able to withstand the horror of not one, but three poorly-made, preachy films in a single night? Or will they abandon the sinful nature of podcasting and devote themselves to the nearest evangelical church?

You'll have to listen to find out!
