Govt Gone Wild – Nights 11/12/2020

Halloween may be over but the horror show that is 2020 continues to lumber forward so we’ve decided to keep the Monster of the Week segments going! With everything going on here in the states we decided the only appropriate monster to discuss was… government.

So, each of us discuss a different political or government themed film. Randy revisits the wonderfully dry and poignant wit of In The Loop. Jesse takes the Christopher Walken, David Cronenberg, Stephen King classic The Dead Zone for a walk. And Melanie gets real with the 2016 documentary 13th.

On the TV, movie, & entertainment news front we also discuss YouTube pulling the plug on Rewind 2020, Xbox enters the world of Cinevapic, Netflix actually renews some good shows, and more. Enjoy!

Originally streamed live November 12th, 2020 via Facebook Live, Twitch, and YouTube.
