In this episode Lee and Daniel talk about three short silent films from the 1900s - two of which, at the very least, are considered highly influential classic of cinema. The films are "A Trip to the Moon" (1902); "The Great Train Robbery" (1903); and "The Airship Destroyer" (1909). Some brief background information about what film was and how it was watched in this era is covered, before getting into a fun conversation about the merits and limitations of these three pioneers of what we all know to be film today.
