Ep. 101: 'The Congress' & 'Ready Player One'

Hello? Is this on? Is this the real life, is this just fantasy?

Ampoule-inspired hallucinations aside, this is the Late! Night! Double! Feature! Picture! Show! And the rumors are true folks: we are cancelling the apocalypse this show... yeah... it's true. There will be another episode coming soon, but hey. San Junipero calls.

But once again let us return to the age-old question: who wins? A movie queen who can't escape the future, or a freaking computer nerd who can't escape... reality? Cartoon drug trips, or World of Warcraft super-quests? Robin Wright playing herself, or Mark Rylance versus the world? There's only one way to find out!

Now go wrap yourself to sleep in loneliness and a sheet, grab a taco al pastor, and enjoy.

Get yer popcorn!
