Saddle Up Episode # 24 The Mandalorian Chapters 7 & 8

February 18, 2020

Hey y'all, this is the last way.   We are back to finish up.. or round up??..(ok, I'll stop)  y'all's favorite space western, The Mandalorian.  Tonight Special Guest Michael Hall is back with Pat and I to discuss Chapters 7 and 8.  But, we do have a little something extra, instead of reviewing chapter 8 we are doing a commentary. So watch and listen with us!..yay!!...too excited?

Again, this is a SPOILER episode, so please watch the show before you listen.  Although this is no spoiler, us three have fully enjoyed this show up to now, but does the season finale hold up to the rest of the season or fall flat?    Y'all just going to have to listen to find out.... I have spoken.

THR Episode #193 - Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey

THR Episode #193 - Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey

February 13, 2020
Well, DC threw another idea at the wall with Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (yes I had to look that up). We'll see if it stuck. Lance was kidnapped and taken to New Orleans, so he's missing on this one, but we've got Phillip and Brian to hold down the fort. Plus we've got his review of the movie included with his ransom letter. They really underestimated how much money we're willing to spend to get him back. We get into the controversial super bowl halftime show, the Oscars, and share our thoughts on the new Saw movie, Spiral (with Chris Rock?).  Plus our buddy Jeff Larrimore sent some more awesome feedback!  So grab your popcorn, and probably some alcohol with this one!
