This week Tiny and I talk about the things we watch when we’re sick. We discuss the differences between the things we watched during sick days as kids versus the things we watched as teenagers and now as adults. For Potpourri, Tiny talks about Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, while I share my thoughts on season 1 of Battlestar Galactica. Also included in this episode is a rant about racists complaining about The Dark Tower and a clip of me talking about 1939’s Stagecoach.
