    Episode 180 - The Night They Saved Christmas

    In the one hundred and eightieth episode of the Twilight Pwn, John & Fred discuss “The Nighty They Saved Christmas," a 1984 film that has little-to-no tangible connection to Rod Serling's iconic series, The Twilight Zone. Topics include Santa Cuck; a technocratic take on Christmas; and PAL, the joke-ruining robot.

Great

Love the show, but some of the episodes are incomplete. They play to about halfway through, then loop back to an earlier part of the episode. This has happened many times to me. Otherwise, very entertaining and add so much to what I get out of every episode. I hope they keep going after the main series is complete.

The Schweppes of Comedic Twilight Zone Podcasts

These guys are about two thirds of the way through the TZ canon and are still going strong. The show's tone strikes a great balance between pastiche and partisanship (as Rod Serling would undoubtedly have observed). Entertaining elements of the show include: weekly intro-offs showcasing the hosts' dueling Serling impressions. inevitable MST3K digressions, ginger ale-centric jokes, and a lot of genuinely thoughtful observations along the way.
