Hollywood lessons learned from 2016 box office  

Yes, 2016 generated an all-time high in box office revenue, but when you adjust for inflation how successful was it, really? Is Hollywood heading for major crash, a-la the music business of the 90s and the publishing biz of the oughts?

We cover that in this episode, as well as:

What were the Top-10 highest-grossing films of 2016? The influence of Chinese investors and the Chinese government on Hollywood. What year set the record for attendance, not for revenue? Why it's better to root for the Dark Side. The evil that is Herbie the Love Bug.

Friday the 13th (the original!)  

It's Friday the 13th, so what else would we cover but FRIDAY THE 13th? The original, people, not a remake, not a reboot, not a sequel, but the carnage-fest that started a billion-dollar franchise.

PANDEMIC Episode #11  

Margaret Montoya was the person responsible for ordering the nuke strike on Detroit, an act that killed Dew Phillips, Perry Dawsey and over a hundred thousand people. She’s carried that guilt with her nonstop ever since. Eric Edmund was injured when the submarine Los Angeles attacked the Operation Wolf Head task force. He’s brain dead, and the government has made his body available to Montoya for necessary human experimentation. Chief Petty Officer Orin Nagy, on the other hand, is very alive, very infected, and trying to avoid the cellulose test would show him as positive. Meanwhile, Steve Stanton’s robot the Platypus has closed in on the wreck of the Los Angeles and is waiting for instructions.
