This week we underestimate the yield of our time machine's nuclear engine and blast into 1954 to look around and watch its highest grossing movie: Rear Window.  We talk about supreme court decisions of some import, a giant explosion that sorta created Godzilla and then go over the suprisingly kick-ass Rear Window with fromsuperheroes.com creator/writer Diana McCallum.

This week we slap streamers on the time machine and pleasure cruise back to 2010 to look around and watch its highest grossing movie Toy Story 3 with 1st episode guest and comedian Bobby Knauff.  We talk about oil spills, try to define the american tea party movement, fail, and then go over a movie that has a strawberry scented nihilist totalitarian bear in it.

This week we elaborately dance about the time machine before getting in and slowly drag-racing our way back to 1978 to look around and watch the highest grossing movie: Grease with special guest Comedian/podcaster/nice person Jackie Kashian!  We talk about a year that seems to have been mostly snowstorms, serial killers and an Australian Grocer prank then we go over a collection of the catchiest songs you've ever heard nestled within a surrealist high school nightmare. Oh and the dancing is awesome!
