This week, domestic harmony gets put to the test, as Brigit returns to assist the guys in the Countdown set by listener Jarrod, the winner of the Word Salad Productions raffle for the month of July. He selected a Countdown of the Top 10 Kickass Female TV Characters, meaning Wayne and Brigit have ample ammunition with which to take aim at one another, while poor Paul can only watch on in equal amounts of horror and amusement. (Protip: Stick around for the almost 3 minutes of bloopers at the end of this Ep to hear more of what transpired between these two lovebirds.)

As if that weren't enough, there's also some intriguing news shared as part of Check It Out, the guys duke it out through Round 2 of new game, Tag Lines, and then there's the usual Recount and listener feedback segments.

In this week's episode, things start off innocently enough. The biographical drama, Free Sate of Jones gets a review, before a new segment called Tag Lines (based on an idea by listener Tim) is unveiled.

And then things go to hell in a handbasket.

Wayne decides to treat his list of the Top 10 Films Set Pre-20th Century (with thanks to listener Sam Loy @human_ordinary1 for the idea) as if it's nothing more important than ranking the episodes of The Big Bang Theory he has seen the most times. Paul, aghast, can barely contain his ire as Wayne tries to justify poor choice after questionable decision, before finally admitting this may not have been his finest hour.

Gasps are heard, swear words are uttered, and there is more shaking of the head than at a Metallica concert. All of this and listener contributions as The Countdown continues ...

In an all-new packed show, Paul and Wayne review two very different films - the much-hyped next entry in the DCEU, Suicide Squad, and the world's first R-rated CG animated movie, Sausage Party. The reactions to the films are quite contrary, with the guys loving one and struggling to find much good to say about the other. And for the record, there are ZERO SPOILERS for Sausage Party, but the boys do talk Suicide Squad in detail.

And though it might seem a bit of a stretch, the one thing both of these new releases have in common, is their awesome ensemble casts. So in honour of this, the guys countdown their best ensemble cast films with some interesting choices popping up on both lists - and the usual paying out following on close behind ...

After last week's no-holds barred sh*t fight, the boys this week bury the hatchet by turning their attention to a mutual love: Kurt Russell. They celebrate this amazing actor's career by counting down his best ever ten films, and are in almost complete agreement about what should make such a hallowed list. Listeners also play a HUGE part in this Ep as there was a mountain of feedback for this Kurt-based Ep.

Paul & Wayne also get stuck into a bit of Check it Out, and in this edition of Cool for Cast, turn their attention to re-casting James Cameron's 1986 classic sequel, Aliens.

This one is for the ladies!

Having been called out for being too "blokey" with their Countdowns, Paul and Wayne this week respond by welcoming guest host Janelle to educate them in the way of all-things Chick Flick! Of course, they attempt to put together Top 10s of their own, and well, let's just say Wayne accounted reasonably well for himself, but Paul's lists leave much to be desired. Janelle, however, schools the boys with some amazing choices from the days of yesteryear which should melt the heart of all fans of this genre.
