If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It (general)

Byrd and Trev are joined by frequent guest host Tom to discuss all things Twin Peaks!  As a "sequel" to our recent David Lynch special, we're taking a deep dive into the entire Twin Peaks series.  We look at how Mark Frost and David Lynch changed TV with the original run.  We discuss both original seasons, the film Fire Walk With Me, and the long (LONG) awaited third season "The Return," which just finished airing.  We talk the show's cult status, favorite characters/moments, the wait for The Return, our theories on the show (especially the Return's finale!) and more!  So kick back with some coffee and pie and enjoy our deep dive into the surreal, hilarious, and gruesome world of Twin Peaks!

Byrd and Trev are joined by Tom (formerly of the Second Run Podcast) and Rob (of the Drinks and Thinks Podcast) to talk about one of the most baffling and confusing movie franchises ever, as they discuss the Resident Evil series.  In the winter of 2017, Byrd was forced against his will to watch all six films and discuss them with three lunatics.  Are these actually great genre films after all?  Is Byrd just a sourpuss?  Listen and find out for yourself!  But first the guys pay tribute to the late Bill Paxton and lament the closure of the IMDB message boards.
