    #31 - With That Being Said or Proselytution

    Whaddup?!

    I hope everyone is staying safe + sane out there. This is the first of a cache of episodes to be released this week. I just want to get it all out there so we're caught up. With that being said, in this episode, we're going to let you know what we're watching and give a shoutout to the good things the great folks at Cinespace are up to. Also, Joe just refuses to quit writing articles for chicagofilmscene.com

    We ask the tough questions, Such as: How would you slowly drive someone to insanity? Also, the Aum Shinrikyo death cult, what up with that?

    Truly never yours,

    #35 - Mundane With Heart

    We need to talk.

    This isn't working for me and I think it's time we move on. I mean, it's not like between the graveyard of cancellations, shows that have overstayed their welcome, werewolves not getting their fair shake, and spending all of your time "world-building" that you ever have time to work on us.

    All you do is talk about the walking of the talking of the dead. You're more concerned with debating if 30 Rock is better than Parks and Rec or if True Detective is better than Fargo.

    We'll always have the good times. Like, when Aaron got punked by Ania during this recording, Chris Hemsworth beating children, and definitively putting to rest the great Star Wars debate but I think this has run its course.

    I need some space. maybe a trial week-long separation.

    Either way, I wish you all the best and I hope we can still be friends.

    #33 - No Tippin' Pippen

    Giving you the least we can since 2019!

    Kinda phoned it in this week. (where else will you get this kind of honesty?)

    However, Max gives us a reboot update. Speaking of Max, HBO Max is dropping May 27th. What's on your 420 watchlists? Bad Robot is making stuff...

    yadda, yadda, yadda, podcast.

    Later.

    #29 - Aaron's Day Off (old news)

    #29 - Aaron's Day Off (old news)

    Audio issues strike again. (brought to you by anchor.fm) However, the CFS Crew just keeps on truckin'. In this episode, Aaron, Joe, and Wan give you the fresh news and hot takes from weeks ago. Due to the aforementioned audio problems, Aaron was forced to bow out early. Never fear Wan and Joe are still here.

    Stay safe.

    xoxo

Great Podcast

I find Aaron’s commentary uniquely satisfying, and I’m not sure why.
