Man, I don't know if you've heard, but 2020 has been quite a year.
I think we could use a break. So, in episode 257, we're setting aside the games and stories and we're just gonna kick back with a beverage to watch a movie. And what a movie it is!
THE EARTH DIES SCREAMING is a 1964 black & white, sci-fi film. The aliens are invading via gas attack! (Insert joke here.)
This 62 minute film has it all. Robots! Zombies! Pregnant women!
The 1983 Atari game of the same name (ep. 248), for those wondering, is inspired by the film...and has NOTHING in common with it. So there's that.
Joining us in this little British town under siege is Dave Ciampa, one of the hosts of "Ciampa & Klein: The Knight Rider Years".
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Thanks to Dave Ciampa from Ciampa & Klein: The Knight RIder Years who joined me on the show this week!
