93: The Very Abyssal Episode Night Call

    • Society & Culture

A night call about "very special episodes" ties into last week's discussion about spooky fridges. What are Tess, Molly and Emily's favorite traumatic very special episodes? Speaking of traumatic - it's the Seinfeld Sex Poll! Who won the one night stand choice poll: George, Jerry, or Kramer? Then it's time for self-care with human vagina candle Gwyneth Paltrow. Is Gwyneth harmful or just a troll? Speaking of trolls, Grimes and Elon Musk are procreating for some reason. And then it's nature horror: we stan the giant tumbleweed that wants to take over the earth. For the main event in our Unsettling CGI January this week it's James Cameron's The Abyss! What's up with this movie that everyone involved almost died making? Why is James Cameron so obsessed with almost dying underwater? Why aren't there more underwater space trucking movies? Why does the NTI look so good? (hint: puppet)? What made Ed Harris cry? All this and more on Night Call!
