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 ...

#PodernFamily promos spun in this episode are for the creator of the Word Salad Production Network's show, Quote Unquote Guilty @QuoteGuilty Then, of course, there is one for the show's US brothers, Nick and Justin, aka The Epic Film Guys.
