  1. A delightful hour of pop-culture blasting, guys. Definitely on par with (if not above) every other network-affiliated retro-TV comedic-breakdown/teardown podcast I’ve heard, and a billion times funnier than 98% of the YouTube-based retro-TV videos I’ve struggled to watch with disappointment/annoyance. Some particularly giggle-worthy moments (joke spoiler alert): the description of the non-emotive child actor being as “scared” as a sculpture of a choirboy caroling at Christmas; “Where’s Sarah Koenig when you need her?”; the idea that a Midnight Society member’s mother would be listening to a Nora Roberts audiobook in her van while the kids are terrorizing each other; and of course the multiple mockeries of the bunsen burner-strewn laboratory (“with all the fire”) with dry ice everywhere. Too many hands in jars (“a child’s intellect is not stored in his hand”). The list goes on. Keep up the good work, guys.
