Episode 52 Show Notes

TV/Movie quick rundown?

REPO: The Genetic Opera

  • We get the obvious “Repo Man” reference out of the way, with a nod to an old Alex Cox film called “Straight to Hell” (imagine a prequel to “Pulp Fiction” co-starring Courtney Love)
  • Crispy versus Brian in a organ repossession deathmatch. What did the movie do right? What went wrong?
