Grab your tickets; we're going back to HorrorLand! Chad, Kevin, and Paul are joined by 90s nostalgia scholar BrutalMoose to cover R.L. Stine's Goosebumps 2000 book Return to HorrorLand.
This story asks hard questions such as 'How much money would it take to sell your kids to a reality show?' Enjoy the park's new attractions; iconic rides such as Tooth Game... and Mummy Walk. Huh. HorrorLand claims to be under new management, but it's certainly up to its old tricks.
OFF TOPICS: The Disney TM Raccoon Princess, anime cicadas
Book discussion begins: 08:00
Why are we watching an old Nick Jr show? Because it was written by Jovial Bob Stine! Before Goosebumps was a thing on bookshelves, R.L. Stine was head writer on this wacky, non-educational children's show Eureeka's Castle. Chad, Paul, and Kevin are joined by guest Josh Henderson (Pretend Friends, M-Class Podcast, Continue?) to cover the first two episodes (that couldn't be bothered to have proper titles).
We discuss the show's Lynchian b-roll, our favorite character Hose Boy, Batly's hipster status, and how Eureeka and her friends are all really servants of the giant.
OFF TOPICS: Josh and Chad fall in love over Incubus, more quicksand debate, The Charlemagne Maneuver
