Lee and Daniel are back to kick-off an extended look at crime films. First off they check-out their first Poliziotteschi film, in Enzo G. Castellari's "Dirty Harry"/"Deathwish" mash-up "The Big Racket", from 1976, starring Fabio Testi. Also covered: listener comments; what they've watched as of late, and some brief thoughts on the deaths of Miguel Ferrer and John Hurt.

No regular episode this week, so Lee tries to come up with something to talk about in an intermission episode. Mostly it's just commercials and music. Can't win them all.

Finally sitting down to do an episode that was planned months beforehand, Lee and Paul chat about John Russo's "Midnight" (1982) & Joseph Ellison's "Don't Go in the House" (1979). Paul also chats a bit about his time attending the 2016 Living Dead Weekend and the people he talked to at the event, including Russo himself. This one is pretty loose and lacking fucks, as both hosts are drunk, but it's generally a pretty fun conversation, and they do try to review the films. What more can you ask for on a free podcast? NOTHING! That's what.

Lee and Daniel start off 2017 by looking at Curtis Hanson's epic 1950s crime picture "L.A. Confidential" (1997). A lot of time is spent talking about the characters, the way the action is shot, and if the film is a truly a noir or not. They also talk about the differences between the film and the James Ellroy novel of the same name, that it was adapted from. Also covered: what they've watched as of late (WARNING: there's some "Rogue One" spoilers) and a good deal of listener comments are read and responded to.
