Episode #297 – Mortal Engines

Meanwhile Stuart discourses on other evil Valentines in fiction, Elliott’s got Morgan Spurlock’s reciepts, Dan doesn’t understand how a single goddamn thing in this movie works, and we’re joined by Brendan Hay, executive producer for Harvey Girls Forever!

Finally the gender-blind “Mort” from “Bazooka Joe” movie we’ve been waiting for!
