We’re a little late to the party on HBO’s miniseries Chernobyl, but we’ve seen it now and we discuss it away from the initial hype of its release last year. Is it as good as people have said? Is it historically accurate? Does it matter?

You know how we normally talk about one movie per episode? Well this time we talked about 38.
We discuss our favorite movies of the decade with our friend Melissa. We went so long that we cut the episode in two. In this part, we run down movies that didn’t quite make the cut. We’ll be back next with our top 10 lists.
Surprise, surprise! We’re actually covering Star Wars on this show. The “Skywalker Saga” is “finally” “complete”. We give our thoughts on the new movie, the new trilogy, and our wishes/speculation for the future of the franchise.
