When Entertainment Ruins Your Happy Place and Stephen King’s IT Reactions | Ep 285

We all have those special places in our hearts for things we love. Puppies, beaches, clowns. And then Hollywood comes along and tosses Cujo, Jaws, and Pennywise into the mix, forever ruining these bastions of joy! This week, we discuss when entertainment ruins our happy place.

Also on this week’s podcast: Star Wars gets a few more shakeups, Disney drops Netflix, Wonder Woman locks up Patty Jenkins, reviews of The Show, Little Evil, and The Orville, recommendations, and much more.

After our normal show, we turn our voices to Derry, Maine, as The Losers Club takes on Pennywise the Dancing Clown in Stephen King’s adaptation of IT. Does IT live up to the hype? Has faith been restored in the movie theater? Find out as we debate red balloons, the direction of the film, and the performance that everyone is talking about.
