After last episode's delightful diversion, we have arrived at the season seven playoffs. This week, Matthew, Dan, and Tim are all keen to become the winner of the Chronic Town division, but only ONE can do so, and advance to the season finale. In round one, we'll look at famous non-fiction books that have been adapted into scripted Hollywood movies, before going in the television wayback machine to mashup famous shows' pilot episodes that aired on the same day.

They made three more.🧛🏻‍♂️ The Lost Boys sequels are The Tribe and The Thirst.🪩 Unfortunately, we had to take out the oddest game in the Castlevania franchise: the pachinko version of Rondo of Night that advertises "graphic violence."😵 Sean Bean really does get killed on screen a lot.🧌 Karnak is one of The Inhumans!
