    Great show guys.  Love the CNP (Cinematic Nostalgia Disorder) acronym and agree about it not applying here.

    Joel, just because Jason and I happened to have a G rated fantasy about being a video game expert with crowds of people lining up to see us play that doesn’t make us weird nor does it mean that some of us didn’t also have other fantasies that may or may not have included Catherine Mary Stewart.  People in glass houses with creepy dolls shouldn’t throw stones. Just sayin. 😉

    Though Joel’s ability to know a movie title based solely on the premise and the name of one star is pretty impressive.

    In the random nature of your podcast let me just conclude by letting Jason know that I’m also a big Josh Gates and Destination Truth fan.  DT rocks!

      I’m headed out on a walk top listen to this weeks episode in just a few minutes, but just wanted to leave a quick reply here. Fantasies including Catherine Mary Stewart? But of course… I thought that was more or less mandatory!  😉

      So, Kevin… you’re also a fan of Destination Truth and Josh Gates? And Jason too? That kinda makes a triumvirate of truth-seekers then…
      But now I must leave you! Gotta go defend the frontier, you know… See ya!

        Hope you found the episode to your liking. And I have to say that I love the fact CMS fantasies seem to be generating the greatest response for this episode! 🙂

          I may have been the first one to mention the CMS fantasies but I KNOW I wasn’t the first one in this group to think of it.

            I think I mentioned CMS as far back as in the 6 must-see movies. Several times in fact…  😉

              DT rules.  I’ve been watching it for years.  Josh is hilarious and I would love to tag along on some of his adventures.  
              And for the record, my CMS fantasy may infact involve a tempest video game, but at least I never told her she was the reason I started puberty.  Joel. Have you had that experience? *cough* *Kelli Maroney* *cough*

        Big Destination Truth fan.  Guilty pleasure of mine to watch Josh and his crew chasing mythical creatures and ghosts all around the world.

      “G-rated,” huh? 🙂

      And thank you for complimenting me on what most would consider a serious disorder: “Crappy Movie Sudden Recall”.
