  1. Hey fellers, what about POWERS on Crackle? Developed by Brian Michael Bendis based on his comic.

    Now before you dismiss it because it’s on Crackle (Sony’s streaming service), it does have dude from District 9 and Eddie Izzard..and Ensign Ro looking mad fine.

    I’m watching it and liking it mostly. Sort of a cop drama a-la other cop dramas (me watch TV sometimes).

    Anyway, if not worth your viewership, then at least worth your analysis.

  2. Yes, yes, for the love of God, yes you SHOULD watch Twin Peaks. It is the direct precursor to the X-Files, Lost, and a million other amazing shows (which arguably disappointed their fans at the very end but were amazing rides up till that point) I would happily re-watch along with you and can offer you all of my theories and thoughts. The European “movie” version is great. “Fire Walk with Me” is, well, it’s something (be sure to watch both AFTER you get through the series thought) The owls are not what they seem! The ultimate villian in Twin Peaks is ultimately the person/thing I am most scared of in the world. For real.

    Re: January movies, I saw Dark Tower is slated for a January release and immediately wondered what that meant for it. But maybe January ISN’T just a dumping ground anymore, maybe studios are realizing if you release good movies, no matter when, people will see them.

    1. Ok, ok. I’ll watch Twin Peaks. Eventually.

      Re: the January dumping ground, Loren and I have been talking about covering that in an upcoming podcast. Could the summer movie season become a thing of the past?
