The Flop House

The Invasion

In our least-edited show yet we discover that big stars, glossy production values, and a classic story can't save you from being snatch'd by the Flop House, as we discuss The Invasion.  Meanwhile, Elliott tries to sell us on his medical humor, Stuart imagines the sassy sentient skateboard of his dreams, and Dan auditions for several other podcasts.

0:00 - 0:35 Introduction and theme
0:36 - 2:46 A podcast warning is issued, and a dead-on George Takai impression is met with thundering indifference.
2:46 - 40:54 We talk about The Invasion, the latest and least-greatest take on Invasion of the Body Snatchers.  At least Nicole Kidman wears a tight sweater.
40:55 - 42:38 Final judgments.
42:39 - 55:09 The sad bastards recommend.
55:10 - 56:05 Some nonsense about Karate Kid to close the show.
56:07 - 58:56 Thanks, podcasty business, goodbyes, theme, and outtakes.
