Set down the book, Goosebuddies because this time we're turning on the boob tube. Dom, Paul, and Chad watch two "classic" episodes of the Goosebumps TV series. First, "Don't Wake Mummy", a pretty mundane tale of a scaredy boy and his sister whose archaeologist mother commits mail fraud and brings a real ancient pharaoh into their basement. And worst of all; he may become a real, living murderer! As opposed to a zombie one.
Up next is the show-exclusive "Click" which so clearly inspired the Adam Sandler emotional comedy. Watch as a boring kid buys a magic remote and only uses it to get the newspaper. Also the boys discover a secondary background TV show that is way more interesting than the episode we're watching.
We hope you enjoy our occasional dips into the silver screen of spooks!

DING DONG Goosebuddies! Chad, Dom, and Paul read The Cuckoo Clock of Doom; a time traveling horror story where the greatest fear is having your diaper changed by your mother. In this story a child reverses the bird on an antique wooden clock and is forced to relive his childhood in reverse, doing nothing to change his fate. Chad thinks this is the worst book yet while Paul loved it; so this is a real divider.
The boys also talk about George Romero's Monkey Shines, wheelchairs you blow into, a strange alternative satire called 'SFW', that dude who got his weiner cut off in the 90s, jackin 'em up, Jarhead movie sequels, and again cover the perfect way to get away with murder using time travel.
