TFR 115: Quarantine

Hello and welcome to part 1 of 3 of our Quarantine watches! Recorded in late April during the lockdown, this episode provides a time capsule of films and tv shows Albert, Austin, and returning guest Zephyr have been watching to pass the time and temporarily drown out the whirlwind of the current atmosphere. We talk greats like Space Force, Chopping Mall, Birds of Prey, a grab bag of things we had been wanting to watch but haven’t quite gotten around you. Have have you watched during the quarantine? Let us know in the comments, or on our twitter and facebook, which you can find links for below!

TFR 114: Change the Channel

Welcome back! This week we have frequent guest Zephyr back for a special update to our State of Criticism cast. For this discussion we focus on Not So Awesome, a document released by former members of Channel Awesome documenting what happened during their tenure at the site. We go over our thoughts on the document, as Zephyr, a long-time Wall fan, unloads on Nostalgia Critic’s latest parody video on The Wall. Tune in!

You can read the document here, and draw your own conclusions on what to make of this whole debacle.

TFR 111: Spiderman ’77 (W/Guest Paul Andolina)

DISCLAIMER: This cast was recorded a year ago, before the Sony/Marvel Split, before Spiderman: Far From Home came out, and well before Endgame came out, so there are some.. unfortunate anachronisms. We kept them in because it’s a weird time capsule which serves as a stark highlight for recent events.

Hello and welcome! This week we delve into some Marvel Cinematic AU with returning guest Paul Andolina with the 1977 Spiderman Made-for-TV movie!

We also briefly discuss other ’70s Marvel Movie attempts and wax about how far we’ve come and what the future may hold.

TFR 109: Get Out

Welcome to our episode on Jordan Peele’s now horror classic Get Out!

We recorded this episode on April 4, 2018 – a little over a year ago. Albert was originally going to cut out all mentions that date this recording, but a) there are too many mentions and b) it turns out that said mentions aged really, really well. So enjoy!

Note: The Film Room episode backlog has only 2 episodes left before we start delivering you fresh new content! Stay tuned!!
