Let’s Go JoJo! Episode 5 – Find Polpo’s Fortune


Later than normally scheduled as we've been so busy hanging out on a fabulous yacht with some charming fellows who enjoy fine dining, a bit of music and pissing into teapots. Will Giorno be able to get along with these bad lads though? The rest of the slate is keeping it rude also with Doug indulging in a spot of revenge in Double Decker, Franchouchou get down & dirty in Zombieland Saga and the animators let their libidos run wild in the obligatory beach episode of SSSS. Gridman. These guys look like trouble!

Let’s Go JoJo! #4 – Joining The Gang


Giorno continues his confrontation against the sinister Stand known as Black Sabbath as part of his initiation into Passione. Will he succeed? Don't look at the episode title and find out for yourself! On the other side of the law Doug & Kirill break into prime time TV, Karakuri Circus breaks into its larger plot, Gurazeni rounds the bases on its mini arc and SSSS. Gridman lets its hormones run rampant. Convention/wedding attendance oughtn't get in the way next week we hope!

Let’s Go JoJo! #3 – Meet the Gangster Behind the Wall


Giorno may have Bucciarati's approval but to truly join the Stand-powered syndicate running Naples he'll have to complete the task set to him by the corpulent convict that is Polpo. Is it as simple as it looks? Or is there a darker purpose hidden within? Speaking of challenges we do our utmost to cover the remaining slate of weekly airing anime, staying on theme with serial killers escaping via minecart in Golden Kamuy, the usual suspects in Double Decker and twice the helping of murderous puppets in Karakuri Circus and Thunderbolt Fantasy. Hello Clarice!

Show #172: Paranorman


Martin Schneider and Joseph Wade join us on the graveyard shift this Halloween for a spirited appraisal of Paranorman!

A long overdue reunion after our last dive into Studio Laika's unique filmography, Paranorman represents a quantum leap in the scope & ambition of their craft. But much like its namesake hero does the film risk being misunderstood by an indifferent audience inured to getting all their scary cartoons from Tim Burton? Perverse puppets, an ever more relevant message and the finality of death await you on the other side!

Give a listen to Martin investigating another strange town in Breaking Mayberry!

Keep it seasonal with Joseph and company over on Christmas Creeps!

Along with Bucciarati come a few more entries into an already crowded slate in the form of Karakuri Circus and Golden Kamuy to further tax the free viewing time of your intrepid hosts. The struggle is real!

Show #171: Edgar Allan Poe's Extraordinary Tales


The days grow shorter and the nights ever longer as the eeriest time of the year approaches, so why not bundle up with a good scary book? Or better yet why not a succession of frightening stories in animated form, such as Edgar Allan Poe's Extraordinary Tales?

The writings of Edgar Allan Poe have been committed to film on countless occasions, his macabre short stories & poetry proving fertile ground for imaginative interpretation. Poe superfan and animator Raul Garcia took it upon himself to pay tribute to the man in this anthology piece featuring a stellar cast of horror film luminaries. Will this outing resurrect this ancient terror in the modern day? Or has the whole subject been done to death? Book talk, Halloween party plans and amazing restraint on Niall's part to not reveal the bizarre twist in The Murders In The Rue Morgue await if you dare!
