Misery (1990) – 30th Anniversary

Over the years there have been many film adaptations of Stephen King’s work. Today we’re covering one of the finest. Starring Kathy Bates and James Caan, Misery is the story of fandom gone wrong. Or maybe it’s an allegory for over-zealous editors. Or it could be an author’s struggle with drug addiction and the backlash from fans when their writing ventures beyond a specific genre. Join us on the podcast as we debate this question and discuss what makes Misery so great.

Fargo - 410 – Happy

In this week’s episode of Fargo, the drug war is heating up… wait, I think I’ve said that before. In fact, it’s been heating up for at least half the season now. And while things have certainly progressed, with bodies in the streets and gang shootings in the papers, the ambition of this season’s storytelling make it somehow feel like the war is still simmering away on the back burner with just a single episode left. Join us for the podcast to get our full episode breakdown.

The Mandalorian - S02E04 – Chapter 12: The Siege

Oh, you were expecting Ahsoka to show up the episode after she’s name-dropped? That’s just too bad. We’ve still got secondary characters to service! Like Cara. What’s she been up to since Mando left? And Greefe? He definitely needs some screentime. Not to mention Boba Fett was shown two full episodes before Ahsoka’s name even hit a character’s lips. No friend, we’ve got a LONG way to go before the Ahsoka episode. In the meantime, we do get some solid action and speculation-fodder for Moff Gideon’s plans if he ever gets his hands on Baby Yoda.
