Fourth Chair Army Invasion | Convince Me!

So, I've got a new podcast project. I know, I know, but it'll only be a few times a year and not much trouble to fit into the schedule. What's going on is the Nerd Lunch fellas are cutting back to two, actual Nerd Lunch episodes a month. The other two weeks are filled with spinoff shows, Down the Rabbit Hole and The Chap Report, so I floated them the idea of letting their Fourth Chair Army (of which I'm pleased to be a member) take over the show anytime there's a fifth Tuesday in the month. They went for it and Fourth Chair Army Invasion is a thing.

For the first episode I asked Liz Twachtman, Mike Westfall, and Evan Hanson (all of us appearing in the collage above with Nerd Lunch's Carlin Trammel) to join me in something I called "Convince Me." Each of us introduced another panelist to something they’ve never tried before to see if we could convince each other about the worth of The Americans, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Attack the Block, and Meet the Robinsons.

Pax and I talk about the Coen Brothers' re-adaptation of Charles Portis' novel. We also get in some discussion on the 1969 John Wayne version as well as Charlton Comics' Billy the Kid.

Thundarr Road | Stalker from the Stars

David, Noel, and I try to figure out just where Thundarr, Ariel, and Ookla have traveled to in "Stalker from the Stars." With only a couple of clues to guide us, Noel and I came up with different answers, so we talk that through before getting to the business of an ice cavern amusement park, a deadly alien, and a very sick Mok.

Hellbent for Letterbox | Stagecoach (1939)

Pax and I finally visit the John Ford/John Wayne classic, also starring Claire Trevor, John Carradine, Thomas Mitchell, Tim Holt, Tom Tyler, and (uh oh?) Andy Devine.

Also: Pony Express mail and quick reviews of McLintock! (1963) and The Great Missouri Raid (1951).
