The whole point of watching a movie is to be taken away from the mundane and the normal. With the way things are going right now in the world, a good movie is needed now more than ever to give your mind a break from all things Covid-19. The debaters get into their favourite comfort movie, what they're disappointed about thats being postponed, what they're enjoying at the moment while on covid watch, what the movie industry could do to stay a float right now with our "professional" opinions and as always a few things we never plan on talking about. In the living room this week is Jimmy Skinner, Dan Goldberg and Micheal Petrow and ON THE PHONE is Mark Cowell as he self isolates after getting home from Cuba. Nothing stops that man from talking!

How many of us have watched a movie and said “ I could totally survive________ if that happened to me” This week The Reel Debaters ask themselves that very question while pulling a debate from a not well known genre called “ Humans hunting Humans” Inspired by The Running man, Death race and Surviving the Game the cast argue their weight in salt and see if they could survive a movie that has anything to do with a tournament/challenge/cultural event that ends in a winter take all/death match scenario. Debate: Each cast member picks a movie that has one of the previously mentioned events in it. They must argue why they feel that their present day version of themselves would survive, how they would do so and what skills they think would help them in their quest. Rules: Only access to what’s in the movie for defence and offence and you have no time to train. Its off the couch and into the ring. In the living room this week is new cast member Dan Goldberg ( 3 episodes in a row!) Jimmy Skinner , Micheal Petrow and first timer and awesome human comedian and artist JD Renaud Trailer of the week: The Hunt (2020) Check out The Prop Shop for all our new gear!

Scenario: You're off to collage and you've got some extra cash to spend on whatever you want for your dorm room.
