As funny as the first. An enormous shame that the series ended here.

№ 191 Excavating the X-Files: Part 1

2013-10-02

Skip unless you're a huge X-Files fan. For someone that's never seen the show, the story quickly gets incomprehensible (Chris Carter's fault, not the hosts).

Skip

Loose discussion of "Is James Bond sci-fi" that trails off (without an answer) into a half-hearted review of Spyfall.

Listen

One of the funniest episodes in SFC history.

№ 82 John Carter, Savior of Mars

2012-09-16

№ 78 The Dark Knight Revisited

2012-08-09

Listen

Definite listen if you like The Dark Knight Rises. Even if not, the banter between Matt and "guest host" Ben De Bono might be enough.

№ 76 The Dark Knight Rises – Instant Reaction

2012-07-20

Skip

Discussion is not bad at all, but probably only listen if you loved the movie and want to hear the quick initial thoughts.

№ 72 The Amazing Spider-Man Movie Review

2012-07-13

Listen

2011-10-23

Skip

Not as bad as its reputation, but mostly a rehash of previous topics like if "greatest show ever" is objective or subjective.

№ 32 LOST Part 1

2011-09-27

Skip

Listen only if you're a big LOST fan.

№ 29 Superhero Summer Movies Recap

2011-09-05
