Every week we bring you the latest news in Movies, Television Shows and Comic Books. It's friends getting together and talking about what they love or hate in the genre. We aren't experts, we're not critics, we're not writers but we are FANS! We're called The Leftovers for a reason. We're like Danny DeVito in Twins. All the talent and originality went into the other podcasts. All the crap that was left over...went into what you listen to on this show. We talk about the latest movies in MARVEL like Avengers: Endgame, DC and STAR WARS. But we also cover other blockbusters and don't shy away from indie films as well. We breakdown and discuss new trailers for upcoming movies. And we got you covered in television with shows like Black Mirror, Perpetual Grace LTD, Wayne, Cobra Kai, Stranger Things, The Mandalorian, Fleabag, Westworld, Dead To Me, The Walking Dead and more. We love to review the first episodes of most shows and let you know if it's worth your time. So strap yourself in and have a good time! Strap yourself in? Really? Just listen. No straps required. Unless you're into that sort of thing.

Episode 357: The Mandalorian, Disney+ Leak? (Black Widow At Home), Saved by the Bell, Hillbilly Elegy, The Flight Attendant, Happiest Season, Belushi, Uncle Frank, Superintelligence, The Mystery of D.B. Cooper, The Donut King, Embattled
Welcome to Episode 357. This week we are joined this week by good friend of the podcast and host of Smorgasborg: A Star Trek Universe Podcast, Neil Thollander. Smorgasborg is a show about the greater Star Trek Universe, as well as a recap show about whichever series is currently running. You can find Smorgasborg on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, pretty much everywhere you find podcasts.
This episode we are shaking things up a bit. We go over the winners of the Jiu Jitsu digital movie codes but instead of jumping into Good Pop Bad Pop this week we start with what I feel are the big topics of discussion. Why bury them in the desert with that one mistake you made in Las Vegas? It wasn’t your fault. Accidents happen. But it will haunt you forever and we are onto you. You can’t run from your past.
This week we talk about the supposed Disney+ Leak. There’s a commercial that has been floating around that looks legit and gives details about MCU Disney+ series release dates, a Black Widow Disney+ announcement and a new section on Disney+ simply titled Disney 18+.
You can watch that very video HERE https://youtu.be/WZmfxD9StdM
We’ve got some “rumors” as well for Thor: Love and Thunder as well as “possible leaks” from Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness.
Then we dive into the latest chapter of The Mandalorian with a Chapter 13 “The Jedi” discussion. This is SPOILER FILLED! We talk about the episode, our thoughts, what we liked and didn’t like and we have tons of speculation about what’s to come.
We finish the episode with Good Pop Bad Pop this week. You heard me. There’s no News or DC News this week. When Mike Tyson fights Roy Jones Jr. you end the podcast early. Anyway, in Good Pop Bad Pop for movies this week Brian talks about 2 new movies on VOD. The first is The Donut King about Cambodian refugee Ted Ngoy who built a multi-million dollar empire by baking America’s favorite pastry — the doughnut. Then Brian talks about the MMA drama Embattled starring Stephen Dorff. Brian and Neil discuss the new Amazon Studios film Uncle Frank starring Paul Bettany and Sophia Lillis. They also talk about the new Ron Howard film Hillbilly Elegy starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close. We give our thoughts on the new holiday film Happiest Season on Hulu. And we talk about The Mystery of D.B. Cooper on HBO.
Brian and Jake talk about the documentary Belushi on Showtime. Using previously unheard audio-tapes recorded shortly after John Belushi’s death, director R.J. Cutler’s documentary examines the too-short life of once-in-a-generation talent who captured the hearts and funny bones of devoted audiences. And we all discuss the new Melissa McCarthy HBO Max original movie Superintelligence.
In Television we talk about the new Saved by the Bell revival show on Peacock and The Flight Attendant starring Kaley Cuoco on HBO Max.

Great podcast. Thanks for the recommendation of Gangs of London. Can you give listeners your top 5 most anticipated tv shows for 2021(premiere, new season, etc.)What is going on with Game of thrones sequels??
A Breath of Fresh Air
I started listening to PCL back in Feburay and haven't strayed since. It has quickly become a podcast that I look forward to listening to every week. I enjoy the variety of guests and the long, relaxed format. It really makes me feel like I am among friends, nerding out and sharing our favorite pieces of media.
Bought $2500 of Apple products so I can leave this review. This podcast is ok. 🤷🏽♂️
