2x07 "Mob's Yer Uncle"




Neighbors, am I right? Buncha a-holes. This week the classic Twilight Zone episode “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” faces off against the not-quite-as-classic “The Shelter” in a suburban grudge match for the ages. Along the way Craig unwraps a mint copy of Twilight Zone Magazine (for research purposes) and discovers that every good idea he has for the podcast… well, Tom Elliot had it first.
