Producer Porthos (don't ask) & Johnny Whitetrash pop up to help us talk about a particularly Canadian centric episode of Due South where Benny see's the good in a pathelogical lier and Ray loses an old friend.
The latest member of our hosting team, Mountie Nicola joins us to talk about her top 10 Canadians. We go from space to World War 2 and for some reason Nicola has chosen Aqua Man... or Squee is confused.. it's just possible!
We play the game 'The People Have Spoken" with host Johnny Whitetrash (Due South edition). Johnny looks up the IMDB rating of movies starring the cast of Due South. Squee, Michelle and guest Mountie Nicola must guess the rating each movie got. Who will win? Will we have heard of half the movies? And, how much have we had to drink already?! This is why we don't often record 2 episodes in 1 night!!
We talk about the series 1 episode of Due South 'An Eye for an Eye'. A 'Bat-Man' is fighting for the street vigilanty style for the elderly, but not that 'Batman'. We introduce 2 new rums and Mountie Nicola joins us in a feautre lengh episode. #RumsOutFunsOut
We dip into 'A Hawk & a Handsaw’. When a mental patient goes to jump of a roof whilst Frazer and Ray are at the hospital for Ray's psych evaluation they soon find themselves trying to track down the patients brother and they realise there is more in what the patients are saying than the hospital might like they to know. Squee is ill, Michelle is drooling and Dottie admires Dief's ways of getting round the humans. Guest featuring Mountie Nicola.
At the SciFi Weekender in Wales we catch up with the Cloven Hoof Rum stall and we talk Canada with actor Ross Mullan (Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Bear Behaving Baddly).\\At the SciFi Weekender in Wales we catch up with the Cloven Hoof Rum stall and we talk Canada with actor Ross Mullan (Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Bear Behaving Baddly).
Ray is in love when a woman saves his life and Frazer is for once being the voice of causion. But it's ok, Dief is still after food, so somethings are as normal at least. We also talk Canadian news, Winter Olympics and Paul Haggis replies to the shows instagram.\\Ray is in love when a woman saves his life and Frazer is for once being the voice of causion.

It's been a long time coming. We've been talking about this film for several years now, and the book for even longer. We even went as far as to compile the Ready Player One Film Challenge which we attempted and failed not once, but twice. So, it's fair to say that we've been anticipating this one for quite some time. The book is a love letter to the 1980s and everything about being a nerd. Games, films, books, TV shows. All the things that I, and countless others, have immersed myself in over the last thirtysomething years.
Going into the film, I was nervous. Having seen the trailer and the posters, there were a few things that didn't sit quite right with what I knew of the source material, yet I wanted to remain open minded.
The opening scenes do a good job of setting up the world as it exists in 2045 and giving us our first glimpses of the OASIS. It's a rich,...Read more
