Bonus: "Awful Good Movies" ft. Jeremy Johnston

Welcome to some between-season goodness! Jeremy Johnston (remember that film round table forever ago!?) returns against his better judgment to test out a new podcast idea! If you remember Jeremy, you'll recall that his film knowledge is next level - he is basically a human IMDb page. Well, he had an idea: What if you hunted for the real flaws in critically acclaimed movies and only picked out the redeeming qualities of those that are most hated? Well, wonder no more! We have decided to test drive this idea and we would LOVE your feedback! Join us for "A Tale of Two Tom's," wherein we 4 dummies sing the praises of Freddie Got Fingered (Tom Green) and launch an unforgiving assault on Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks).
