Almost five months after recording our first joint commentary for Out of Gas we return to the series that started it all with Ariel, the only episode for which neither one of us have recorded a commentary.
Dear Diary. Today I took River to have a brain scan in a super-secure yet strangely dark Alliance hospital. The crew stole lots of shiny medicine and Jayne sold us out. It was the best day ever!

In this very special episode, I was fortunate enough to attend a midnight screening of The Monster Squad at The Denton Movie Tavern, as part of their Friday Night Frights. It was apparently the only remaining 35 milimeter print in the country! The film's star, Andre Gower was there to introduce the screening and he answered questions from an inebriated audience.
It just so happens that I brought my camera with me and I've recorded the event for all to enjoy. Andre was even nice enough to sign autographs and take pictures with fans, and this was probably around 2 AM! What a guy! The picture of Andre, Brandon and myself was taken in very little light. One of these days, my stupid ass will remember to use the lamp on the front of the camera. :) Thanks goes out to Stuart Duncan for somehow making the image presentable. Thanks also to my dear friend Brandon Ortega, for his help in getting to and from the screening and making it a fun time. You sir, rock!
Special thanks goes out to John Gray and Paul Salfen for putting together an unforgettable evening, and also to Andre Gower for taking the time to come all the way out to Texas, for sharing such wonderful stories with us and basically just for being awesome. See, it's officially in writing now, so that makes it true!
Note: Alcohol was being served at this event, so the crowd was very loose and rowdy. Fair warning for those easily offended, this podcast does contain some explicit language.

House Of The Dead is a lame, generic and cheap-looking movie based on a popular video game. You know what that means. Yup, it was directed by Uwe Boll. Brandon Ortega and I sit down for some commentary, having never seen the flick before. There's no way we could sit through this garbage twice. Hell, it was enough of a struggle the first time. In any event, Brandon and I keep the conversation alive and there are many laughs to be had with this obvious joke of a movie.
Note: The first countdown to begin the DVD failed, so just wait for the second one before pressing play on your remote. We hope you enjoy the show.
