This week Meg is away so we revisited one of the finest auteurs in bad cinema and checked out 1986s Cobra starring Sylvester Stallone, his ego, and some actors I guess.  With Special guest Craig Fay Dave goes over one of the laziest, uncooked movies ever made that is still somehow watchable.

This week we unwisely fill the time machine with hydrogen and float back to 1937 to have a look around and watch its highest-grossing movie: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with special guest Lucy Gervais! We go over Mae West's cheeky puppet innuendos, an air disaster, several other disasters and then chew through the obviously problematic but wicked pretty cartoon made by moustaches, amphetamines and aaaaaaall the cigarettes.

This week we pack our aluminium time tubes with yellow cake and fly on back to 2003 to have a look around and then review it's highest-grossing movie The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.  With special guest Blayne Smith we go over the unfortunate events of 2003 and then tussle with Tolkien, Meg's hatred of B-list Hobbits and the fat-shaming of Samwise Gamgee.

This week to celebrate our hundredth episode we got nostalgic and maybe self-indulgent and invited guest comedian Alex Wood to time vortex thingie back to 1996 and review the movie Dave and Meg conceived the show over: Star Trek First Contact. We sing, we laugh, we posit old-timey borgs and just generally have a grand time.  Thanks for listening.

This week we armour up the time machine and slide back to 1940 to have a llok at the war and catch the highest-grossing movie: Rebecca with special guest Ben Beauchemin. We go over a very disconcerting winning streak for Hitler and chat about the crazy drunkard who went against him and then review a movie that switches protagonists halfway through and features a used car salesman/cousin/love interest?
