First hosts John, Andrea, Judy, and Orenthal bring stuff to the table: Judy is disappointed by the second season finale of True Blood, Andrea drops a few pints and a few quarters at the Barcade in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and John is thrilled that Ray Wise is going to be on Dollhouse this season.
As for the reviews, there's just two this time 'round: On "A Case for Books," Andrea reviews We Never Talk About My Brother by Peter S. Beagle and Troll's Eye View: A Book of Villainous Tales, edited by Ellen Datlow and Teri Windling, and she also recommends the Green Man Review podcast. On "Couch Potato Salad," I rip into Dark Blue and recommend Monk's final season.
Finally, on Pop Fiendish, Orenthal waxes nostalgic over the Saturday morning cartoon preview shows of the past.
