Episode #263: Franchise-Fest
It is often said that Hollywood has no new ideas (have you used your Movie Pass/A-List to see indie films?!), so we leaned into that for this episode! Even those who will avoid the new installments or reboots can enjoy a look at the times "when they were good." This grouping accidentally became a nice mix of a brand new concept that still feeds Hollywood writing rooms, a reboot that spans 60 years back to the original, & a turning point where some fans gave up on a franchise after 10 years and 4 movies. Hidey ho, let them fight, laundry day - yes.
