Episode Two: No New Tale to Tell

Hey ghastlies and ghoulies!

In this episode we tackle the cyclical nature of movie plots and conventions. We don't dwell on cliches, as such, but instead concentrate on commonly used movie plots and tropes. Topics include basic plot structure, the various types of stories used in films and books, and the effect they have had on cinema.

In This Week In Strange We sniff out the worst fragrances known to man, and yet made commercially available.

In the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF) segment, I discuss Rob Pattinson's dubious lineage (I pray he is not really related to the Lord of All Vamps). I also make a call to arms to put the fangs back in horror!

Join us this week for some more conversational goodness in this recent series of meta-lectures. My co-pilot this week is the venerable Mr. Dillon. I thank him for his expertise in this subject.
