CT and Pax welcome back to the show Thom Holbrook from the poobala TV Crossovers website to talk about movies that were based on TV shows. Talking about both the movies that served as sequels and extensions and those that were reboots, the crew outline some of their favorites and least favorites. Then they end the show taking TV shows and giving them movie treatments of their own. What would The Wild, Wild West done right be like? Or a movie version of The Prisoner? Better yet, what about an edgy, cinematic Hardcastle & McCormick? Listen now and find out! (Because it's probably the only version of these movies that will ever be made...)

Matt and Jay join CT and Pax for a trip into the Black Hills to talk all about the Blair Witch franchise.  The main discussion is about the movies but we also manage to discuss found footage movies, the pop culture influence of the movies, movies that aren't Blair Witch sequels that should be Blair Witch sequels and much, much more.  Come join us, if you can find us.

Hey! It's "Hole Time" again (well, let's double check with Jeff first to be sure) and the Rabbit Hole crew welcomes Quinn Rollins, author of "Play Like a PIRATE: Engage Students withToys, Games, and Comics" and also Muppet fan extraordinaire. The hole we jump into this time is the Muppets Wiki. Can we get from the "Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem" page to the "Janice" page? Well, yeah, but can we make it interesting? Listen and find out.

As a part of our "Real Life Scenarios" discussions, the Nerd Lunch crew welcomes Mike Westfall on to discuss who we think the real life Vice Presidential Action Rangers are. Based on the premise from Futurama's "Anthology of Interest I" where Al Gore reveals a VP's job is to protect the space-time continuum, we determine the rosters of Sprio Agnew, George Bush, Dan Quayle, Dick Cheney, Joe Biden and Mike Pence's Action Rangers. Be assured that the space-time continuum is in good shape for the most part.
