Episode Notes

"Excuse me, but isn't that why we watch monster movies? Just to see big monsters fight?" No. This episode argues the need for solid human stories in these kind of films and the disturbing continuance of "lowest common denominator" filmmaking and the dumbing down of our entertainment.
