How can we follow up heavy-hitting guests like Griffin Newman and Chris Weitz, you may ask? Uh, well how about with JAMELLE BOUIE, New York Times columnist and guy you've definitely seen saying smart things on the news. Why does he like us? Who knows! But he stopped by to discuss Sonic the Hedgehog, about some sort of hedgehog who has definitely never been pregnant on the internet. Meanwhile, Jamelle gives us his history with SEGA, Stuart uses literary terms correctly, Dan only has old man references, and Elliott adds a few physics goofs to Sonic's IMDB page.

Stuart tries for extra credit (no one tell him that Flop House extra credit isn't a thing), by checking out the puppy-kidnapping family comedy Rusty: A Dog's Tale and reporting back to the guys.
Guys, we're so excited for our guest this episode. He's a big-time Hollywood gent who's worn many hats -- and to name just a few: he wrote and directed About a Boy. As an actor, he co-starred as "Chuck" in Chuck and Buck. He was one of the producers of The Farewell. The man co-wrote a Star War (Rogue One), for Pete's sake! And, as we never get tired of reminding him, he directed Twilight: New Moon. But up until now, he's been missing one line on his resume -- Flop House guest. I'm sure now he weeps, for he has no worlds left to conquer. Chris Weitz is on this episode! And we're sorry we made him talk about Rambo: Last Blood! Meanwhile the rest of us do some shit. We won't waste your time. Just listen. Wikipedia synopsis of Rambo: Last Blood Movies recommended in this episode: Easter Parade Support the Girls What's Up, Doc? Harakiri
Griffin Newman came back (for reals, not one of these "we actually recorded it at the same time") to chat for a bit about Watto, Star Wars in general, his career, and, of course, Tom Selleck.
