Thanksgiving Movie Cornucopia!

Thanksgiving has some tasty movies to enjoy, especially if you have the Disney-owned streaming service, Hulu. This week Colby and Darrell set the table for you by doing mini reviews of 3 Thanksgiving films: Paul Blart Mall Cop, Son in Law, and You’ve Got Mail. They share some of their favorite moments of each film, fun behind the scenes facts, and whet your appetite so that you might just want to snack on one of them after your Thanksgiving Day feast!

S1E13 The Transformation

More ill-fated passengers on a plane? Yes, but this is not the pilot episode, it’s The Transformation. Although there are many parallels and callbacks to it, as well as some shoutouts to another J.J. Abrams staple, Alias. We are here to talk about all of that as well as our memories of this fantastic episode of Fringe which brings so much of the plot of the first season so far to a close. We, as always, talk about our favorite moments from this episode but also discuss why we see it as the turning point of the first season.

Disney vs Universal

Does Disney still hold the magic against Universal’s updated parks? Bryce recounts his recent trip to Orlando where he spends one day at Disney and one day at Universal. How do the parks compare in the world or rising ticket prices and bigger and bigger rides? This discussion plus a huge drop of Disney news on this week’s episode of Mouse House Weekly!

Christmas in the Magic Kingdom

Throw out those pumpkins and hang those lights because Christmas time is here! No place has more spirit than Christmas in the Magic Kingdom. This week Ben and Erica jump in the podcasting sleigh and discuss two ways to experience Christmas in the Florida’s original theme park. Bake some cookies, grab some hot cocoa, and cozy up to this week’s episode!

S1E12 The No-Brainer

What’s that noise? It’s not the sound of a brain-melting computer virus but rather a discussion between us and guest co-host Geoff (xforce11) on this rather polarizing episode of Fringe! This episode takes a break from the mythology and gives us a stand-alone case of the week involving a man exacting revenge on those he holds responsible for ruining his life by liquifying the brains of their loved ones, and we discuss what parts of this episode resonate with us more than others do, our initial thoughts about Rachel’s motives vs. how we feel now, our continued feelings around Sanford Harris (here is a hint – we cannot stand him), how all three of us agree that the conflict between Olivia and Peter is the best part of this episode, and so much more!

Crazy Moments at Disney Parks

Since the opening of Disneyland in 1955 every park has faced some scary and bizarre moments- things that not even Walt Disney himself could have foreseen. From Yippies shutting down the park, a guest that assaulted Tigger, loaded weapons on rides, or ashes being spread inside the Haunted Mansion, there are many notable things to discuss.

Hocus Pocus 2 Review

29 years after the first Hocus Pocus was released, the long desired sequel has been released, exclusively to Disney+. After it originally flopped commercially, Hocus Pocus has become a much beloved cult classic, so was Disney able to keep the magic of the first film in its 2022 sequel? That’s what Blake and JJ are talking about this week, in celebration of Halloween coming in just a few days.

Mind Your Business

Mind Your Business

The power of the human mind is perhaps often underestimated, but it’s certainly capable of much more once it enters the Twilight Zone. Season 2 of Rod Serling’s masterpiece gave us two excellent examples. Episode 16 features Dick York in, “A Penny for Your Thoughts” and episode 27 showcases Shelley Berman in, “The Mind and the Matter.” Both of these light-hearted episodes had us cracking up and enjoying our trip to the Twilight Zone!

S1E11 Bound

S1E11 Bound

You are bound to enjoy our discussion of this high-octane episode of Fringe! Although we both agree that the cliffhanger from the last episode is wrapped up a bit too early here and that the exposition is a bit too heavy-handed, this episode moves at anything but a sluggish pace and left us with plenty of new questions when it first aired thirteen years ago. What was ZFT trying to accomplish by killing immunologists with this super-sized slug (which apparently wasn’t actually a cold virus according to Walter’s lab notes)? Why did they abduct Olivia? What was the spinal tap for? We were definitely like a question machine!
