Jen has returned after mutant plankton destroyed her computer. This week is shorter than usual for the simple fact that it’s news and rant heavy, leaving little room for silly things like main segments. Still, the episode packed! We talk about the upcoming Silent Hill sequel, a really bad movie idea, the military and its love affair with Batman, and possibly one of the stupidest plagiarists in history. Tune in and enjoy!

(Somewhere an angel has lost its wings.)
- Silent Hill 2 is Coming!
(And gamers cry with joy because Uwe Boll is nowhere near it.)
- The U.S. Military Contracts with
Bruce Wayne…I mean Batman!
(The Joker, of course, ran away, and Michael Keaton simply repeated “I am Batman” until the sun went down…)
