On this episode, Byrd and Trev give their thoughts on the Walking Dead and American Horror Story so far and concept art for the abandoned Crow reboot, Trev reviews the recent sci-fi film In Time, and the two review the recent Edgar Wright produced creature feature Attack the Block.  After that its all downhill as the podcast goes totally off the rails as the two discuss the nature of fan films as Byrd tries, and ultimately fails to describe why they annoy him, in a debate that pretty much goes nowhere.  This is what happens when a podcast self destructs.  We're not perfect!
