Matt Groening is back baby!

We had a bit of a technical difficulty in this episode, so there's a bit of an abrupt cut from the original pod and we rerecorded about ten minutes of conversation. This was a really fun show and generated a great amount of discussion for a half hour show.

And as always, 30 second pitches and crossovers!

We promised it, and it delivered. After doing dietland, a show about weight and the issues surrounding it, we had to do insatiable, just for the controversy around how it handled the topic of weight.

And boy did we get more than we bargained for. To just mention the controversy does this show a disservice. Insatiable si a fascinating dark comedy... But is it good? Steve and Chris decide... at least for episode one!

This week Steve and Chris makes things more Family Friendly and take a look at Fraggle Rock!... Wait (*checks notes*) oh... this isn't family friendly at all?

This week Steve and Chris delve into the darkness that ensues when you mix Stephen King and JJ Abrams and explore the Hulu Original Series: Castle Rock. How many references do Steve and Chris Catch? What other author's works would make for a great episodic series in a grand meta-narrative? What's in this JJ Abrams Mystery Box? could it be...

SATAN?

55 Episodes! and there were those who said we'd never make 54! well phooey on them!

This time, to celebrate the occasion we take a look at one of Chris's favorite shows of all time (Nowhere Man) and One of Steve's (Garth Marenghi's Darkplace). Both a bit older, how do they hold to up to a re-viewing?

We also take a look back and update our old shows, which have we continued to watch, what's still on the air? what shows have we cursed to oblivion?

Enjoy this 55th episode spectacular, we couldn't have made it without all of your!
