13 min in and no mention of Halloween literally meaning the eve of all saints day. But mentioning samhain as if there is any historical relationship other than the approx date which back then would not even have been around 1 Nov. You guys failed your research on this, so I can only imagine how poor the other episodes are. Too bad.
