Happy New Year Countdowners! To mark the latest complete orbit of our planet around the sun, the boys this week lured podcaster extraordinaire, talented voice over artist and actor, John Rocha, out of hiatus from the Top 10 show, to assist in ranking this year's best 10 films. John brings a certain level of class and depth to the show which the Countdown sorely needs - as evidenced by the typical crass and disrespectful attitude Wayne and Paul adopt toward each other as they battle for the win in the final segment of Tag Lines for this season.
Then there's the usual Recount, listener nominations for the top films of the year and a brief tribute to the late, great Carrie Fisher.
It is most certainly the biggest episode of the Countdown yet, so please thank John for coming on board by following him on Twitter @TheRochaSays, listening to The Cine-Files @ http://thecine-files.podomatic.com/ or chasing up Super Animation Gametime @ http://geekandsundry.com/
#PodernFamily promos played this week are for The Something Something Cast @STSTCast, those lovable downtrodden critics, Dan and Caleb of Netflix N Swill @netflixnswill, and our US brothers, the Epic Film Guys who continue to kick all kinds of ass @EpicFilmGuys!
If you’d like to give Wayne and Paul some feedback or have your lists featured on a future episode, sound off on Twitter @thecountdownpc, on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/thecountdownpc or fire off a good ol' fashioned email to firstname.lastname@example.org
