Chin Stroker VS Punter (general)
Episode 121- Live Show from 27th Nov 2010

This week we take some listener feedback, have fun on Twitter and have a chinwag with the chat-room. Topics covered you ask? Paul FINALLY catches The Walking Dead and Inception, Mike talks Harry Potter 7a, and we get into a lengthy discussion about budget vs content, with a couple of side roads into how 'expectations' can ruin films.... This episode is pretty much as recorded, so there is no fanciness or production value AT ALL, it be here in it's crappy glory...

Bonus Episode: A Conversation with Michael J. Anderson

Long time listeners will know that we do not need any excuse to talk 'Twin Peaks', so it was a pleasure to have a chat with genre legend Michael J Anderson about not only his work as 'The Man From Another Place' in 'Peaks' but his experiences working on Star Trek, The X-Files and Mulholland Drive...
