The cult monster movie classic TREMORS spawned five straight-to-video sequels and, over a decade later, its own SYFY tv series! But how the heck do you turn a movie about folks stranded in the desert with underground sonar monster worms into an episodic TV show?

The answer... may surprise you. But what we really want to know is, was TREMORS: THE SERIES canceled too soon?! Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dig into the mythology of the underground hit and reveal why they love this franchise, and whether TREMORS: THE SERIES is worth exhuming.

GHASTLYTOBER continues!

Before Stephen Moffat updated Sherlock Holmes for the 21st century, in the megahit BBC series SHERLOCK, he went back in time and brought back a monster. JEKYLL stars James Nesbitt (THE HOBBIT) as Dr. Tom Jackman, a mild-mannered scientist who keeps transforming into an amoral, violent and uncontrollable new personality.

But there's more to the story than meets the eye, and more than you'd ever find in the book!

JEKYLL lasted only one season, six short episodes, but although Moffat claims to have written a second season that never came to fruition. Was the series... CANCELED TOO SOON?

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold will find out in an all-new episode of the podcast, as our GHASTLYTOBER continues!

You have burning questions and we've got burning answers! In this week's episode of WE'VE GOT MAIL, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold tackle the misunderstood concept of objectivity in film criticism, come up with new ways for filmmakers to use high frame rates, reflect on their favorite movies that became musicals that became movies again, and consider the very real possibility that they were completely wrong about JOKER!

Everyone's second-favorite 1960s sitcom about a family of monsters living in suburbia got an all-star reboot with 2012's MOCKINGBIRD LANE! This reimagining of THE MUNSTERS stems from HANNIBAL producer Bryan Fuller, and stars Jerry O'Connell, Portia De Rossi, Charity Wakefield and Eddie Izzard as creepy creatures trying to live inconspicuously in polite society, while also occasionally killing some people.

It's creepy, it's kooky, but it's ain't THE ADDAMS FAMILY. It's the Munsters all over again, and it may very well have been CANCELED TOO SOON. Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold exhume this notorious failed pilot to determine if MOCKINGBIRD LANE deserved to buried alive in foul earth of pop culture history, or whether it's worthy of resurrection.
