Elwood and Stephen are joined by That Moment In.com's very own Duchess of Dark Cinema, Zoe (Zobo With A Shotgun) so of course it made perfect sense that we would be looking this episode at the Korean Romantic Melodrama The Classic. Stephen provides also provides an introduction guide to the genre while Elwood opens the anime vault to look back at Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend. We also talk cursed jewelry, impressing women with your blood type as well as asking if toothpaste is a good way to counter tear gas ... plus much more!
On this episode, I, The Vern bring you my top five favorite movies I have seen so far in 2018. There's only one rule, that each movie had to be one I saw in theaters. You may agree with me and you may not, so let's discuss in the comments. Be sure to tell me which ones I should have left off and any titles I should have mentioned instead.
Thanks again for your support.

I was a guest for a script read of Ed Wood's cult classic and after we finished, I took the file and added in sound effects and music and turned it into an audio drama. It was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy this preview. The full audio drama will post on our Patreon page Friday. Below is a list of cast Members that were in the presentation.

On this latest edition of TV Good Sleep Bad Elwood and Lackey take on two episodes of Black Mirror, the British science-fiction series that’s giving new meaning to words like “prescient.” You go to bed one night in a world that makes sense, and in the morning you wake up only to find that you actually live in the world of “The Waldo Moment.”
In this episode, we discuss:
Black Mirror series 1 episode 1, “The National Anthem” (2011): A mysterious terrorist makes a bizarre demand of Britain’s Prime Minister: fuck a pig on live television or a beloved member of the royal family dies. Starring Rory Kinnear, Lindsay Duncan, Donald Sumpter, Anna Wilson-Jones.

Who is she? What happened to her? And why are all these people in masks chasing her? Starring Lenora Critchlow, Michael Smiley, Tuppence Middleton.
London, England*. And in a basement in moneyed Mayfair** lives the greatest guardian of cult television the world has ever known. Yes, Elwood Jones, the secret agent so secret that even his code name has a code name. And with his trusted assistant Daniel Lackey (code-named “The Jigsaw,” because whenever he’s faced with an episode of Buffy, he goes to pieces), he has delivered the thirteenth terrific episode of TV Good Sleep Bad!
* He actually doesn’t live in London.
** And if he did, he certainly wouldn’t live in Mayfair.
In this episode, we discuss:
Cyber City Oedo 808 episode 1, “Memories of the Past” aka “Virtual Death” (1990): In the twenty-ninth century, three ruthless, hardened criminals are given the chance to reduce their sentences by taking on missions too dangerous for regular police. It’s up to these three antiheroes to save the 50,000 occupants of a massive skyscraper when the structure’s central computer puts the building on lockdown. But who’s controlling the computer?
Danger Mouse season 2 episode 6, “The Four Tasks of Danger Mouse” (1981): Baron Greenback kidnaps Penfold and issues an ultimatum to Danger Mouse: collect the ingredients for a powerful ritual the Baron wants to enact, or the hapless hamster gets it in the neck. But can even the world’s greatest secret agent claim a piece of the legendary Fog Monster of Old London town? And is television ready for a certain showbiz-obsessed vampire duck?
