Phil Leirness was supposed to be joining Dean Haglund in Rhode Island this weekend for the X-Filers United conveniton. Phil has had to beg out for some seriously crazy and scary medical reasons, which he discusses in rather hilarious fashion at the start of this week's show. Dean previews the convetnion, and then your friends in podcasting really get down to business, discussing some amazing good news to come out of the Notre Dame fire, the rather bizarre TV shows Dean is watching now that he resides in the USA again (and when we might expect him to show up in some of these shows), the full-on war between the Writers Guild of America and the talent agents that once represented the writers, and two recent movies: Holmes & Watson and Aquaman. All that plus an Oscar-nominated director fights for life, a brilliant television comedienne is remembered in "Celebrity Deaths", Roman Polanski returns in a "Lawsuit of the Week" and the yet-to-launch Disney + streaming service announces what film won't be available and what classic will be edited before it is available.
