Against everyone's wishes, the crew (including the returning Gerald James) returns to Gotham City. A city of justice, a city of love, a city of peace for everyone of us. We all need it. Can't live without it. 

No surprises here. Nobody likes this. The nicest words we can manage are in praise of the promotional Pop-Tarts released during the hype. Everyone is terrible, and nothing about this movie is good.

Also in this episode, Allen's hatred for Pat Hingle reaches new heights, fax machines on elephants, monkey work, ZZ Top, we question why a plan to freeze the world and replace the flora with mutant plant-animals is in anyway conducive to the health of the planet, Allen learns that he thinks Steven is trash, Revolution X, 9/11 Truther Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Oxbridge University, lip condoms, and the properties of diamonds are properly laid out (SPOILER: they're pretty much just rocks).

Fuck this movie.

We round out 1996 by revisiting the world of James O'Barr's The Crow in the ill-advised sequel, The Crow: City Of Angels. We have a full house as Allen and Steven welcome back previous guests Alan Hardy, Gerald James, and Lacey Day, to dissect and attempt to explain what is happening in this movie.

Also on this episode, we discuss the band HIM for really no good reason, white trash goth kids, every 80's band ever is referenced for no good reason, Pantera is outed as Lynyrd Skynyrd with distortion, Seven Mary Three is only not Pearl Jam because they're different people, and Iggy Pop spent 40 years living on the sun.

This week we managed to rope Gerald James into talking about a movie he had never seen or cared about. 1996's The Phantom, starring crowd-favorite Billy Zane, is a forgettable thrill ride that never left us bored or short on jokes. Far more fun than you'd think, but far less fun than it should be, the pulp comic strip character is treated well, and delivers enough entertainment to kill 2 hours. Though its PG rating leaves us all baffled. Billy Zane is adored, Allen confuses James Russo for James Remar and thinks he's a different guy than he is in this movie, and Gerald doesn't like any of this.

Also in this episode, we remember Godsmack and lament the things they did to deserts in the mid-00's, radio DJs are hated again, and podcast plans are made for Halloween.

Lacey Day pinch-hits for Steven as we tackle 1996's Dark Horse Production of Barb Wire, starring Pamela Anderson. We turn the film into a loose drinking game to help us get through the 100 minute run time. Lacey offers unique insight as to why, while she loves a strong female lead, she finds nothing much to like about this film. A strange adaptation of a 90's comic, mixed with 90's action trash, and a loose ganking of the plot to CasablancaBarb Wire falls short of everyones expectations, and is a worthy film if you're ever looking for a final straw to push you over the edge into the deep, dark abyss of alcoholism.

Also in this episode, Lacey Day outlines the White Castle and Krystal's are more certainly not the same restaurant, that Jack In The Box is well worth visiting if you don't have much money and want a couple tacos for a dollar, and we establish that leather is the only resource that becomes more affordable in the Second American Civil War.
