This week's podcast does a lot of “checking in on the state of”: A special guest, sci-fi (and sci-sci) fan Chris Klimek, joins us to check in on the state of science-fiction movies in the wake of a long string of box-office failures for anything not connected to a franchise, a YA novel, or a superhero. Noel and Scott return from the True/False festival with thoughts on the state of documentaries and non-fiction cinema. After that—spoiler alert!—we play a game called Spoiler Alert, where panelists try to identify movies from spoiler loglines. And we wrap by trying to take the personal back out of 30 Seconds To Sell.
