Episode 57: 'Starry Eyes'

Welcome back once again, to the place with the friends. J&J!

Is Hollywood a cesspool of sociopaths? Is machiavellianism morally reprehensible? This week, Jon and Joel take a hard look at last year's disturbing 'Starry Eyes'. Sarah Walker says she will do anything to be a leading actress, but how far will she really go? Two parts morality tale, one part monster transformation, and all the 'vomiting maggots' scenes you'll need for a lifetime (that is, just one). And Joel also catches up on 'Louis' s04!

Meanwhile, Jon's out of coffee, drinking tea; and Joel's preparing for a summer-time Christmas vacation. Also, more remakes and adaptations than you can shake a stick at! Will 'True Detective' s02 be awesome? Will David Lynch return to the helm 'Twin Peaks', season-the-next? The guys don't know, but they can guess in this latest episode of 'Talk and Trivia'. Enjoy.
