The holiday season is here and it's getting bloody cold around these parts as winter finally sets in. At first Lee wanted to build a playlist around Christmas films, but he decided that was a bit too obvious and lame. After asking the TMBDOS! listeners what they wanted, he settled on movies set during the winter time that were not focused on the holidays. Although mostly focused on horror, there are some nice surprises here as well.

Lee and Dan are continuing down the classic western film trail with what many consider to be the film that really breathed new life into, and also elevated the western genre from 'B' grade to 'A'. This episode it's John Ford's "Stagecoach" (1939). They talk about if it truly is a classic, how it made John Wayne a star, and the influences it had on films to come after it. Also covered: listener comments and what they've watched as of late.
Note: there were some audio issues when this was recorded. Lee has managed to edit around most of them, but at times the conversation might feel a tad disjointed, and a few sports of audio break-up might be heard. Sadly, it's also about ten minutes shorter than it originally was.

All three hosts are back for this episode to give what might be both their most interesting and insightful yet drunkenly chaotic episode of TMBDOS! Starting off a short series on classic westerns, Daniel, Paul, and Lee take a look at two early examples of revisionist westerns with "High Noon" (1953) & "3:10 to Yuma" (1957). Much of the discussion revolves around how similar the films are and which one is better. Of note, Daniel's reading on "High Noon" drastically changes Lee's opinions on the film. Listener comments are also covered. Saddle up, this one's a long and bumpy ride.
