    Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend Part 3: Operation Dino Drop

    Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend Part 3: Operation Dino Drop

    In true Disney fashion, Baby's dad dies, and is eaten by (American?!) vultures. We get confused over who the real evil scientists are. An indigenous tribe takes down an entire militia. And, an herbivore mommy dino gets a craving for human flesh.
    Also, are we just here to discuss the plot? Nope! It's time for our shocked and applaudable moments!

    Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend Part 2: A Dino Ain't Your Baby

    George gets marital advice from Kenge the pilot to "whip that b-word". Well, it is a Disney movie, after all.  We eventually get dinosaurs in this dinosaur movie. And who doesn't love tricking infants into believing you're the new parent? Let's discuss.

    Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend Part 1: Not the Mamma

    Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend Part 1: Not the Mamma

    We love the smell of campy dino movies with themes of war and colonialism in the morning! If you've seen this movie before, you know this is going to be an interesting ride into the jungle of your memory. If you've never seen it before, welcome to the club! None of us had either, until Maddie from Shocked Talk recommended it to us.
    We've also got lots and lots of Sean facts, questions that will never be answered, and a full walkthrough 65 million years in the making. 
    It's a Baby, gotta love 'em!

    Doom Patrol Part 1: The Best X-Men Pageant Ever

    Doom Patrol Part 1: The Best X-Men Pageant Ever

    Let's join forces (your ears and our opinions) for something amazing and peculiar! This part is so huge, we won't even discuss the plot for either episode we're reviewing this month.
    Lydia helps bring us into non-theatrical entertainment for the second time -- "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever", also her choice last December, was our very first.  But this month is definitely something new, as we cover two great episodes from "Doom Patrol" season 1 -- our first venture into discussions of a serialized streaming show. 
    We'll tell how we first came to the show, discuss the characters in tons of detail, and bring Sean Facts into the mix for trivia and laughs.

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!

Jen.Burt ,

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!
