    Time to drop what I’m doing and give this delightful review a listen. Has there ever been a better movie covered on this show?!?

    I will forever be partial to The Phantom review. I will change my tune when you start calling me ‘Perfect Toph’

    Great movie night for a great movie! Somehow I missed when this one went up but I’m so pleased you guys did this movie.

    Jeff, have you read the new comic that’s out at all? I picked up the first issue on FCBD and it’s pretty groovy!

    I have not gotten my hands on any of the Banzai literature yet and I think the first thing I’ll read is still the novelization of the film. A role-playing game comes out this summer and if you preorder it you get your name on the list of Blue Blaze Irregulars! I don’t remember if I mentioned that on the podcast. I cannot wait for that to ship.

    Deff let me know how the role-playing game is!
