So you're sitting on your couch... Or in your bed... Or on the subway during a 3-hour commute to a generic ceremony that vaguely involves a series of bizarre acquaintances... And you need something to stream.

You stumble across the free film streaming app named Tubi. You marvel at the variety of quality films, many of which no one has encountered before.

You click a title that interests you based on the description.

A dog vomits within the first ten minutes... in live-action.

We made a podcast to experience that so you don't have to.

Join Ceci and Rafiq as they traverse the inner depths of Tubi's vast film library to view, analyze, and evaluate your next favorite (or least favorite) works of cinema.
