twin-peaks-episode-1

This week, David's in France and none of the other podcasters can agree on what the date is or when Pulp Fiction went to Cannes, BUT – there is a lot to cover from the return of Twin Peaks, Master of None, and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, to Katey getting to go to Moogfest and host a panel, and finally – in light of Alien: Covenant – what opens up a blockbuster for a sequel? It's more complex than they thought.
