In this episode, we discuss:
Rick and Morty 1.05, “Meeseeks and Destroy” (2014): Morty convinces Rick to let him lead their latest adventure, one that ultimately results in him being trapped in a restroom with a lecherous jellybean. Meanwhile, Rick gives the other Smiths a little something to get them off his back: magical creatures who exist only to help them improve their lives. But things take a dark turn when they can’t help Jerry take two strokes off his golf game.
The Outer Limits 1.15, “The New Breed” (1995): A terminal cancer patient injects himself with his future brother-in-law’s body-repairing nanites, but things go disastrously wrong. Starring Richard Thomas (The Waltons, It, The Americans) and Peter Outerbridge (ReGenesis).
Elwood and Stephen checkout Turtles Are Surprisingly Fast Swimmers, a unique Japanese comedy (of sorts) as a mild mannered housewife finds herself being recruited to be spy.
Stephen also gives us an overview of the career of the films of leading lady Juri Ueno, while we also name our favourite titles from the Third Window Film's catalogue. All this plus our favourite Asian authors, Elwood finally watches Shin Godzilla and much more.

Elwood and Lackey present another dose of cult Brit comedy as they visit the show which in many ways was the pre-cursor to The Big Bang Theory with The IT Crowd before heading off to join two questionable Hangmen in the surreal Snuff Box.
All this plus The X Files season 11 wrap up, the return of Gotham, Elwood fixes the Big Bang Theory and Lackey reveals the most wanted lost "Doctor Who" episodes plus much more.

Here it comes, here comes TV Good Sleep Bad! It’s a demon on wheels!
Who has framed the captain of the football team? Who has been hired to steal the plans of the Mach 5? How can we be expected to take a man named Skull Duggery seriously?
In this episode, Elwood and Lackey discuss:
Jess Archer vs. the Ex (2011) and Jess Archer Versus. 1.01-1.04 (2016): Sardonic high school Jess Archer may fantasize about kicking zombie ass, but her real life features adventure aplenty as she investigates a stolen comic book and a football team frame-up, all the while trying to convince her BFF Chase that it’s a bad idea for him to just come storming into the ladies’ room whenever he feels like it.
Speed Racer 1.01 & 1.02, “The Great Plan (parts 1 & 2)”: Speed enters his first real race, hoping to win the money Pops needs to upgrade the Mach 5 into the most advanced racing car yet. But who has hired the dastardly Ace Deucey to steal the secret plans for the new Mach 5…?
After Jordan Peele won big for Get Out last year, we have another television comic in the director's chair in this latest horror feature. That man is John Krasinski, who is best known for playing Jim in the U.S. series The Office. Teaming up with co writers Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, Krasinski helms a movie with a great premise, but ultimately comes up short on its promise.
On this episode, The Vern brings on two great guests to talk about why certain sci-fi movies get great critical praise, but do bad at the box office. Heather Baxendale of the MILFcast and Matthew Stewart of Simplistic Reviews join our host to talk about why movies like Blade Runner 2049 or Annihilation didn't make back their budget despite being both acclaimed movies from critics.
