From the padded cells of Smith’s Grove Sanitarium to the leafy streets of Haddonfield, Illinois… we are Halloweenies. Each month, McKenzie Gerber, Dan Caffrey, Justin Gerber, and Michael Roffman will slice through one Halloween movie at a time – all leading up to the October release of David Gordon Green’s highly anticipated sequel. There will be tricks, there will be treats, and, yes, there will be blood.
This week, Allison and Clint are joined by Jacob Oller (Paste Magazine, One Perfect Shot, Syfy Wire) to finally react to This Is Us’ dramatic Super Bowl episode – and the reveal of Jack’s actual death. In the episode, our hosts also celebrate some transcendent fierceness on RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, dig into the turn-of-the-century pseudoscience of The Alienist, and debate whether or not Queer Eye’s Netflix reboot is a welcome update to the self-improvement show, or mere exploitation of Trump-era social issues with a glossy makeover.
For this first episode, Allison Shoemaker and Clint Worthington are joined by Podlander Drunkcast’s Julie Starbird and The AV Club’s Caroline Siede. Together, the fearsome foursome talk about last week’s Good Place finale, the majesty of Lily Tomlin in Netflix’s Grace and Frankie, the impossible accessibility of This Is Us, and more!
