As will always be the case with this show, be aware that our discussion contains spoilers. However, since the movies we’re discussing are still very recent, we wanted to call out the big spots where we get into deep into the details.

Heavy Spoiler Warning:

Annihilation: 24:50 – 29:32

Hereditary: 43:00 – 1:00:43

From time to time, we may need to take a break from our usual programming. Going forward, in these times, we’ll produce Off-Topic episodes of the show…which is something of a misnomer since they will feature us discussing a specific topic rather than a double feature. We’ll be back to our usual format for episodes in July. Stay tuned!
