Episode 87. We watched Gremlins (1984) and Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990), from director Joe Dante, writer Chris Columbus, and producer Steven Spielberg. Billy receives a mysterious creature as a Christmas present and is warned to never expose it to bright light, never get it wet, and never feed it after midnight. When the rules are broken, the creature can turn into a destructive and chaotic gremlin! Billy has to save his small town from being destroyed on Christmas Eve, and years later, the gremlins come to his job in a New York City mega-skyscraper with goals to take over the big city.
The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a weekly book club style podcast for all sorts of pop culture. We cover a variety of genres and mediums — movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, audio dramas — picking out a specific piece of entertainment that we can cover in a week’s time. Every episode, your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa dive into the media of the week (with a spoiler warning!), give recommendations, and take turns pitching the next topic. For one episode a month, we check in with continuing coverage on a longer title, like a full TV series or comics run, and follow it all the way to the end. Join us for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
