After almost five years, I've decided to end this Podcast, but more on that in the ep. This month we go looking for a new Santa and revisit 'Ernest Saves Christmas'. Mark complains that Santa is too svelte, shows he does not understand screen tests, and finally gets a crush on the show; Karl confidently gets a Michael Jordan fact wrong, makes a snake mistake, and gives both St. Nick and a young girl a hard time; and Sara explains how murders work, misses a reference to the film she's reviewing, and hints that she might think reindeer are birds. Enjoy! And thank you for joining us for the past five years, it's been a blast.

Join us for a boys night of crossdressing illegal hijinks as we revisit Mrs. Doubtfire. Mark makes a deep Ernest cut, only uses real words, and comments on Karl's love life, while Karl overuses a divorce analogy, questions whether cake would exist, and confuses church and state. Sara is out sick with laryngitis, or maybe she's here and not talking, you decide! Enjoy!

Return to a 1940s Toon Town with us as we revisit 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'.

Fall down a weird hole with us in both the literal and figurative sense as we revisit 'A Kid in King Arthur's Court'.

See if you can spot where we had to take massive breaks! Enjoy!

It's a blind watch boys night as Sara is out sick and we watch a film from the 80s none of us have seen, 'Explorers' from 1985. Mark blames everything on space magic, takes a shot at the public school system, and explains where bubbles come from; and Karl asks for his Oscar, forgets several things only to remember them seconds later, and cannot recall his greatest fear. All that and we give free advice to Hollywood on how to punch up this film. Enjoy!

All that and we share our family nicknames and our favorite palindromes. Enjoy!

Karl forgets what children are called, judges a little girl by her looks, and compares Santa to God many times; Mark can't name another Richard Attenborough credit, gets really stuck on a Friends look a like, and presents a very special treat at the end which may be the best thing this podcast has ever put out.
