It seems like every time you turn around, something is getting rebooted. From Halloween to Spiderman to Star Trek, what is old is new again. And that goes for television as well. From Twin Peaks to The X-Files to...Star Trek? 
 
On this episode of The Chap Report, Corey welcomes blogger and podcaster Chad Young from HorrorMovieBBQ.com to discuss the current and impending reboots on television.

This week we are joined by Atomic Geek Michael Downs.  We all know the trope of all the R-Rated movies that were adapted into kids cartoons; Robocop, Police Academy, Rambo, etc.  This week we are reversing that.  We all pick an 80s cartoon and adapt an R-Rated movie out of the show's concept.

To celebrate the madness that is March, the regular Rabbit Holes talk about that one special hole...the basketball goal. They visit basketball.wikia.com which turns out to be one of the worst officiated wikis we've run across. Due to the fast-paced nature of basketball, we try to hit all the pages we brought.
