This week we managed to rope Gerald James into talking about a movie he had never seen or cared about. 1996's The Phantom, starring crowd-favorite Billy Zane, is a forgettable thrill ride that never left us bored or short on jokes. Far more fun than you'd think, but far less fun than it should be, the pulp comic strip character is treated well, and delivers enough entertainment to kill 2 hours. Though its PG rating leaves us all baffled. Billy Zane is adored, Allen confuses James Russo for James Remar and thinks he's a different guy than he is in this movie, and Gerald doesn't like any of this.
Also in this episode, we remember Godsmack and lament the things they did to deserts in the mid-00's, radio DJs are hated again, and podcast plans are made for Halloween.
