    False Starts: I Frankenstein - Episode 32

    False Starts: I Frankenstein - Episode 32

    Is it a 'Creature'?
    Is it a 'Monster'?
    An 'It'?
    A 'Frankenstein's Monster'?
    A 'Frankenstein'?
    An 'Adam'?

    Who knows? This movie certainly doesn't. But it definitely is horrific.

    False Starts: Beetlejuice - Episode 31

    False Starts: Beetlejuice - Episode 31

    Beetlejuice... BEETLEJUICE... BEE... ahhhh we wouldn't do that to you.

    We dive into the history of Tim Burton's 1988 masterpiece (if you're in to that sort of thing, which some of us definitely aren't) to find out just why it never got a sequel.

    SPOILERS, because it was called 'B**tlejuice Goes Hawaiian' and Lewis has read that whole script so you don't have to. Hear about that inside.

    False Starts: Power Rangers (2017) - Episode 30

    APOLOGIES FOR THE AUDIO ON THIS ONE

    Much like the movie, there may be a good podcast hidden within. But there's a lot of s**t you need to put up with.

    We watched 2017's Power Rangers, starring Stickle Brick Walter White. Evil Billy from Stranger Things as a hero(?) and Elizabeth Banks, comped in from a totally different movie.

    False Starts: It's a Wonderful Life - Episode 29

    False Starts: It's a Wonderful Life - Episode 29

    Two Christmas focus podcasts? Three podcasts in a month? Well it truly is a wonderful life isn't it?

    Dan takes the reins this episode as we take a deep look into It's a Wonderful Life and it's failed sequels (I know right?!? As surprised as you are).

mcarthey ,

Funny and informative!

I really do love this podcast and appreciate the effort you’ve gone to breaking down an episode so carefully! The joking around makes me feel like I’m discussing with friends and reminds me of the great MST3K in some regards. Really fun and I look forward to future episodes!

Brilliant idea for a show!

We always hear about the winners but sometimes the losers stories are even more interesting.
