Episode 09: 'The Quiet Ones'

"LIVE! INSIDER SCOOP! YOU HEARD IT HERE, FOLKS!"

Another week, another podcast! This time around, the J's talk about seventies short pants and doors with perv-holes in their review of MPAA No. 47903, 'The Quiet Ones'. They'll synopsize the plot, define 'jump scare', and not be scared of things behind them, all for your listening pleasure.

Meanwhile, it's just another day when Joel saves Disney from a faulty hotel sprinkler; Jon is watching the latest season of '24', and hate/loving it; Joel reveals his love for 'Cats' (CATS!); and Jon bumbles on about theatres-in-the-round. Then, while the composer guy burns food in the background, the duo join forces to rail on 'The Other Woman'. But not the way you mean.
