Back to School
Class is now in session. This episode is exactly what you would expect. Meli and Phoenix are taking us all back to school with some of their favorites. Did they involve teachers? Students? Some sort of Faculty? A campus of sorts? If so, then the odds are they may have made the list. Of course, there are way too many to include in one episode, but I'm sure there could be another next year.

Friends Til the End
This week Meli and Phoenix are going to dive into some of horror's most dynamic duos...sort of. We aren't talking about your traditional pairings, but rather the best friends who are brought to life on the screen. There is a formula to make their dynamic believable with the right chemistry or it just won't work...I'm talking to you, Lourie Strode in the original Halloween. Do you agree with their picks? Maybe you have some to add that they missed.

Coming soon to a theater or streaming service near you... Meli and Phoenix went through and found some movies that are coming our soon (or recently came out that they hadn't heard of). There are some which they are excited about and some which are just curiosities. They have come up with some far fetched theories about how the plots will unfold. What do you think? Are there any you're anticipating?

It: Old vs. New
When Stephen King's Novel It came out, I don't think he knew there would be multiple adaptations of it spanning almost 30 years. We know that the TV miniseries is iconic with Tim Curry's portrayal of Pennywise the Dancing Clown creating such a pandemic of coulrophobia (fear of clowns). 27 years later Bill Skarsgård brought us a very different version of the menacing clown. The debate will of course be which movie is better (if any).
