A new movie year is upon us! We kiick off our series on the films of 2005 with George Clooney's "Good Night, and Good Luck.," which takes a just-the-facts approach to Edward R. Murrow's attempt to take down Senator Joe McCarthy.

In this episode, Mike and Brian debate the validity of patriotism as a criterion for Oscar consideration, talk historical significance, biopics and, of course, decide whether this film deserves a spot in the year's top five.
