Boy, Dom Cobb and his crew of dream thieves certainly have their work cut out for them, don't they? Their expedition into the subconsciousness of Robert Fischer will throw all sorts of challenges at them: militarized projections, multiple dream levels, unwanted visits from Cobb's dead wife. The last thing these guys need right now is a murderous undead serial killer who turns dreams into charnelhouses. Oh wait, you mean Freddy Krueger IS there? Well shoot, NOW this story is getting interesting. Get on our level, Christoper Nolan.
Listen in as Kit and Bob work to make "Frederick" happen, Miles and Claire attempt to crown Dom Cobb the King of the Dumpuses, Liz constructs a horrifying new game in the Lightning Round, and the hosts have a match within a match during judge's deliberations. How much more Inception can you get?!
Steel yourself for the wildest Surprise Party yet as we tackle the now-seminal horror movie Cabin in the Woods! Our hosts form groups of hapless hormonal teenagers that very quickly find themselves in over their heads as they are pursued by dangerous creatures... and a mysterious organization.
Will Kit's party of anime characters outdo Miles's party of super-obscure film characters? Will Claire ever get to see a merman? And will one of our hosts end up the victim of that most terrifying of monsters: the Double Dumpus?! Make some room on the edge of your seat--you'll need it!
The third annual Smashtoberfest kicks off with a growl and a howl as four fuzzy fighters fling themselves into a ferocious fracas filled with flying fur, fearsome fangs, and of course, the full moon! Yes, it’s the werewolf war we’ve all been waiting for, a bestial battle between the most legendary of lycanthropes — or at least, our favorites! Lucian, the lycan lord of the Underworld who morphs into a horndog far more often than once per month; Angua von Uberwald, sexy-but-deadly scourge of Discworld criminals; John Talbain, Darkstalkers’ token werewolf/demon/dragon/kung-fu master/sorcerer; and Scott Howard, high school basketball player, who is simultaneously a teen and a wolf! Which transformation sensation will win this battle for domination? And more importantly, which of them will fulfill the bizarre conditions laid out by Miles in yet another fit of unconscionable narrative madness?
Also in this episode: Dan deadpans “Werewolves of London,” MeganBob weaponizes romance, Claire is all about that silky werewolf hair, Kit pulls a surprising number of arguments directly out of her butt (one of which actually works, kind of) and...seriously, Miles is just the worst, you guys.
Our heroes are really in the thick of things now. Fleeing deeper into Phyrexia, they meet up with another League cell for a chance to catch their breath and plan ahead. What they find is a new ally... and an unconventional way to get to the gem they're after.
Mordin teaches the team the wonders of triangulation; Nico creates a new scaly friend; Stitch is the one who throws; Dante spreads the wonders of consent to a new world; and Luna tries to make Phyrexia more handicap accessible.
