Just wow!

Huge thank you from Gidgit, Angry and the Colonel for helping us hit such a big mark. It was something we’d hope to get to, but never this soon after starting from nothing but quoting 80s movies on Twitter.

For a topic of only 80s movies, you’ve certainly all shown us that these are still amazing films to watch and enjoy, even after all these years. To everyone that has taken the time to write, post, comment and simply just download an episode, thanks for your support, and boy, do we have a lot of movies still do … Read more

5000 Thank Yous
