40 - A Terrible Synopsis

It's a fortieth episode extravaganza! In celebration of this occasion, Count Vardulon and the Divemistress do absolutely nothing different and wander way off topic in their discussion. Introducing the first installment of TheAvod's book club, The Count does a very bad job reviewing Christopher Pike's Slumber Party. The DM does a slightly better job reviewing the documentary Snuff: A documentary. Amazingly, the two both recently watched The Alphabet Killer without consulting each other before hand, and had very different takes on the film's quality. Tune in to find out what The DM bought at the comic book shop, and then stick around to hear a complaint-loaded discussion about Fringe and NCIS: LA.

39 - Promising Beginnings

In this week's episode, your friends Count Vardulon and The Divemistress discuss the end of True Blood and some of the genre TV offerings this season, specifically Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. The DM attempts to review Whiteout and The Count expresses his love for The Punisher and his murdering ways. In a new feature, the pair revisit Event Horizon and the DM admits to not hating it as much as she did the first time round. Watch out for the greatest segues in podcast history!

Addendum: at the time of recording, Resident Evil was the winner in last week's poll. At the time of posting, Resident Evil was tied with Death Race for favourite Paul Anderson movie.

38 - Our New Rating System

This week Count Vardulon and the Divemsitress unveil their new rating system when reviewing Vampires vs Zombies, giving it their lowest rating: You Should Never Watch Vampires vs Zombies. Also under the microscope are the sequel to Crank: Crank 2, Eli Roth's performance in Inglourious Basterds, Rob Zombie's writing and directorial prowess, and decent but tragically flawed movie Surveillance. Tune in to hear the Count and The DM butcher the Italian language with a spoiler-tastic reading from The Bird with the Crystal Plumage.

37 - Snake Head School!

This week your friends Count Vardulon and the Divemistress argue about the exact nature of the Toronto Fan Expo--is it more sci-fi than horror, or more comic book than anything else--and The DM proves to be altogether too well informed about cosplaying. Having exhausted that line of geekiness, the two then move on to talk about unreasonably good British genre TV shows Dead Set, Jekyll, and Being Human. The DM's reviews of The Girl Next Door and Grotesque morph into a therapy session as she tries to work through feelings of disgusted unease brought on by watching too much torture porn.
