F21TOENGYZNVV4K.MEDIUMIf you could have any object from any movie or TV show and it would work just like it did in the movie, what would it be? Karen and I had a blast thinking and talking about this, and you guys had some great answers too. Also, an in-depth discussion about whether it’s realistic how many bad guys have appeared in TWD – I bring up the open-world post-apocalyptic game Rust as a real-world (of sorts) case study. Plus, we review Jim Jarmusch’s moody, funny indie vampire love story starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton.
