I’m the Host A slightly deeper look at the media we all consume

Blake puts the final stab on our holiday episodes, with the holiday movie about another character who sees you when your sleeping, he knows when your awake, he may make presumptions about your guilt or innocence.

We're watching the 1974 movie "Black Christmas" in which we talk about societial changes, horror tropes (and how they've changed), and just how conservative does the horror genre have to be?

We also talk about the missing link, the connection between "Black Christmas" and "It's a Wonderful Life", and mechanical systems.

Kurt brings Lego Batman to the show, and we're looking at what life after grimdark looks like. We also take some time to talk about Batman as myth rather then comics media. 

We also talk about Nietzche, Billy D Williams, and Bojack Horseman (who coincidently are three people who have never been in my kitchen.)

Its!

Pennywise the Dancing Clown is here to take us all down to Killer Clown College. We're looking at both the 1990 and the 2017 adaptations of Stephen King's It; Ally loves clowns so much she subjected us all to five hours of them.

While comparing these two films, we also offer advice on fighting children, a discussion on how a physical bad guy can ruin a chance at supernatural scares, and the arguement that professional clowns need to clean house rather then protest movies. Thats right, we're coming for you, Big Top!

Ally takes us to the theater for our first recent release, Wonder Woman (2017). There are spoilers galore, but we also talk about blind casting, feminism, and the female gaze. (Is that even a thing yet?)

And because this is a super-long episode, we'll also get into the troubles of casting a historical figure as a villain, the horrors of World War I, and how best to accessorize your sword and shield when visiting another culture.
