Craig and John tackle a single topic: bad movies and how they happen. Having experienced the process first-hand, they report on how bad ideas make it to the screen, and how good ideas go wrong. There’s no single answer, but a range of patterns that end in terrible movies.
In follow-up, we talk about still-forming plans for the 200th episode, new USB drives, and favorite episodes.
John’s game One Hit Kill launches on Kickstarter this week. Check it out.
And if you work for Bethesda, Craig really wants you to make Fallout 4.
