Gabe Aikins rejoins the podcast to discuss The Shining. It's influential, sure, but is it as good as advertised? And when will the sheeple finally embrace the truth that we've never actually been to space?
First, though, we have to dream cast True Detective season 3, revisit Pawnee, tease Halloween, and get our minds around the name and work of Yorgos Lanthimos.
TL;DR -> more of the usual, with shots fired at Chris Hardwick.
