This week Lee and Daniel jump back into their look at sex comedies. Before they jump right into the den of sleaze for the rest of the series, they start off by cleaning their palates with a much more respectable sex comedy from 1969, "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice": a film that tackles the topic of open relationships, among other things. Also covered: listener comments and what they've watched as of late.

This week Lee and Daniel end their sci-fi break by looking at two big action/sci-fi sequels from 1990, "Robocop 2" and "Predator 2". Their long lost co-host Paul finally returns for the "Predator 2" portion of the podcast. Also covered: listener comments and what they've been watching as of late.

This week Daniel stepped up and recorded an Intermission episode, as real life got in the way of the possibility of recording a regular episode. In this episode he covers a trio of classic westerns that were recently covered by the excellent Pex Lives podcast in their last two episodes. The films he covers are "The Hanging Tree" (1959); "My Darling Clementine" (1946), and "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" (1962). He ties the latter film in with his thoughts on the June 12th Orlando Nightclub Shooting.

Lee and Daniel are back for their second-to-last entry into their sci-fi break before getting back into the sex comedy groove. This time out they review James Gunn's horror/sci-fi comedy "Slither", from 2006. Before they get to that they converse about the differences between American and Canadian junk food, answer listener questions, and talk about what they've watched as of late.
