Customer Reviews

This podcast is the best thing since MST3k!

This podcast is the funniest thing I have heard since MSt3K! Every episode is better then the last. I hit the floor every time I listen to it because I am laughing so hard. If you are the type of person who like seeing bad things mock(such as an MST3K or Rifftrax fan)then you will love this podcast. I can't believe how many laughs I get every two weeks for free.


Who knew?

I came for the idea the podcast was based on, I stayed for the warmth, laughs and insight. Who'd've thought the microcosm of screenplay novelisations was such a rich seam to mine? Luke and Jess are great to listen to - a little bit rude and very funny - and they care about all the things that are important, that is comics, films and books. I count down for the podcast every fortnight.

A Real Page Burner

I follow Jessica on Twitter, and when she mentioned that she co-hosts a podcast that comedically analyzes movie novelizations, I immediately checked it out. I've listened to the Alien, TMNT, BttF and Species episodes so far and I was cracking up at each one. Gahhh, all the stuff with the cat in the Alien novelization was GOLD. Jessica and Luke play off each other's notes very well and are hilarious to listen to. Great job, guys. Can't wait to keep listening!
