    A Wish For Wings That Work Part 1: Mister Opus' Holly-land

    Look what Naomi found in the bargain bin for a dollar and twenty-five cents! We tried convincing her to wait until December, but she would have none of it -- it's time for Christmas in August, y'all!
    Join us for some really insightful Sean Facts about the production, like why Berkeley Breathed thought it was trash and the adult-y things secretly hidden in the first few minutes. 
    We'll squeak by with just a little bit of plot this week, but we've got a whole month to discuss a 30 minute cartoon. So, yeah. You know what you signed up for.

CoolMoviez ,

Altogether one of a kind!

Rather witty roundtable trio who focuses on defending or putting some pop culture entity on trial while finding amusing facts about the many batches of material they're tackling.

Abpfinance ,

Fantastic!

Such a well researched and exciting show. The hosts do an incredible job and always bring something fresh. Highly recommend!

Applause for this podcast!

The production quality behind this podcast is top notch. The hosts have great insights and intelligent conversations about these movies and also bring hilarious banter to each episode. I started with their Night of the Living Dead series and it made me love the film more as a zombie fan myself. I will definitely be binging everything else they have and anything else to come! Subbed!
