I do believe this is my favorite episode thus far, mainly due to my extreme love of all things John Carpenter. I love the collectibles! Great episode all around.

The Thing has always been one of my all-time favorite movies. I love everything about it.
We are actually recording an episode on it right after the New Year–appropriately, when it’s coldest!
