Let’s talk about the Netflix Gilmore Girls Revival “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” Four 90ish minute episodes: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. These episodes give you all of the nostalgia you were expecting… Everyone came back, everyone that could anyway…Declassify >
By all accounts and measures, PodtoberFest 2016 was a success. I’ve written at length about the goings-on behind the scenes, but as the last of the episodes has now been released as part of 7 Days A Geek’s 30 Days of Podcasting, it’s time to take a look at what happened “on air.”
As such I have devised a Top 10 of my own for the things that happened when the mics were hot, so that if you missed it or decided to pick and choose episodes, I might steer you in the right direction.Declassify >
In a small, cold room with only a single overhead light, the Tables have turned for Agent Palmer. His ongoing series of interrogations have run so long that he now finds himself in the hot seat. This time he’ll be answering the questions. This time he’ll be the one sweating.Declassify >

It’s something that my parents had started at some point and, more to the point, it’s a tradition I have continued since moving out of the house (to my father’s joy), even when I’m not spending Thanksgiving with them.
Now before I get into the song, and there’s a lot to get into, let’s talk about this tradition. As traditions go, it’s hardly odd, and there’s a part of me that wonders why I don’t encounter more people who share this tradition.Declassify >
Ralph Bakshi: A Rotospective
There was a period of time from the mid-nineties through 2013, where Ralph Bakshi had completely given up on making movies. He did some television and a few shorts here and there, but the big studio experience of Cool World, had really soured him on film of any length, type or story.
That is until the announcement of a Kickstart on February 1st, 2013 to fund “Last Days of Coney Island…”Declassify >
