We continue our Countdown to Halloween spotlighting one of the true masters of horror, John Carpenter. Mike, Mike, award-winning author Bobby Nash, award-winning artist Mark Maddox, Anthony Taylor, and Drew Meyer run into some big trouble in Little China and escape from New York wearing their sunglasses while avoiding psychopaths in Shatner-masks, all the while trying to figure out which crew member is the thing. Plus, Anthony introduces us to a new Atlanta convention celebrating the fantastic in film, literature, and art, Monsterama! Plus the usual Rants, Raves, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!

On this episode, the ESO crew discusses something completely different. King Mike, his trusty steed Patsy Mike, the award-winning Sir Bobby the Brave, Sir Greg the Not-Quite-So-Award-Winning, Rebecca the Enchanter, Robert the Shrubber, and Sir Not-Appearing-in-this-Podcast risk just a bit of peril to discuss the classic comedy and there is much rejoicing. Plus, we also take author Ralph L. Angelo Jr. off his motorcycle and onto The Geek Seat. All this, along with the usual Rants, Raves, Khan Report, and Shout Outs!

A deal has been closed for Fringe to get thirteen final episodes to round out its story and wrap up nicely. Well, in theory at least. Bad Robot television had a much longer to prepare for the ending of Lost and that still left most viewers at least a little niggled.

Although a seemingly erroneous report went online earlier today that the movie was going to start shooting in June with Tom Cruise confirmed for the lead role, the story rapidly took a downward turn from there.
