Shawn finally caught up with The Predator and Jason finally caught up wth the 1981 slashic Hell Night starring Linda Blair of The Exorcist fame. Plus the duo lament the passing of Netflix and Marvel's Daredevil series, and ponder why that happened. Oh, and they take a few shots at Ed the Sock as well.

Well, the Basement Boys critique the trailer for Kurt Russell's reign as Santa Claus in Netflix's The Christmas Chronicles. They also report in on The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell and Jason's efforts to cyber stalk its star, and share thoughts on the latest Mission: Impossible.

In addition to Friday's segment with Jason and Howie on the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Kamloops, Jason and Shawn talk the death of Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee and his impact on popular culture. They also review the Netflix TV series Haunted.
Oh, and they get into an in-depth discussion about a recent UFO sighting in their home town of Kamloops, and attempt to debunk the footage, which will be posted on the Facebook page. Jason and Shawn like to think of themselves as professional debunkers you know.
You can hear it all right here, right now, by pushing play on the player below. Look for the video version of this episode to appear on YouTube soon.
A family emergency means this week's extended cut isn't as extended as it usually is (does that make sense?), but the show still goes on!
While you won't get the usual Jason and Shawn banter, you do get Jason and Shawn's full interview with Elizabeth Thomson, the art director on Netflix's newest spooky creation, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina!
Thomson talks the world of production design, what goes into a show's visual style, and how much work it takes to design and build those awesome sets we, as a viewers, often take for granted. It's an interesting and insightful 15-minute discussion.
The interview runs along with Jason and Howie's segment from the Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show, which ran Friday morning. If you missed that, this is your lucky day!
If Jason's life co-operates, he and Shawn and Howie will all be back next Sunday for a regular extended cut, that'll play at the same Bat time on the same Bat channel.

It's that time of year again (well, almost) and that means everyone is entitled to one good scare . . . even Jason and Shawn.
And that's what The Basement Boys are in for with this, the extended cut of Friday's segment on the Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show. Why, because they are venturing out of The Basement and into the cinema to see the new Halloween.
Jason is a long-time fan of the franchise and, for him, seeing this movie is bigger than catching The Force Awakens when it came out. Shawn, on the other hand, has always been more of a Jason Voorhees guy.
How will this much anticipated, and highly praised, direct sequel to John Carpenter's classic rate with these too? Did the makers of The Pineapple Express truly pull off a winner? Stick with us!
Given that this is a lean and mean edition, you get the spoiler-ish-free review and a replay of the Morning Show bit with Howie. That's it, that's all. But really, what more do you need, as a certain Dr. Sam Loomis once said?
So go ahead and push play on the player below, but don't say we didn't warn you.
Jason and Shawn are back and ready to throw down over an action-packed short film in this, the extended cut of Friday's segment on the Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show.
What's the short film? It's called The Proposal and comes by way of long-time friend and collaborator John Fallon and rising martial arts star Marc Natoli. And it just killed it this past week at the Sitges Film Festival in Spain.
The Basement Boys do love their action. Does that mean they love this ode to 80s and 90s action films? Stick with us!
Jason and Shawn also talk Scarlett Johansson earning $15 million for a Black Widow movie, and how that stacks up against the Marvel Studios boys. And there's the segment from Friday's show, where Jason and Howie give the rundown and what's new in theatres, and what the big entertainment stories were heading into the weekend.
FYI: they talk about Trump. If you're like Trump, and easily offended by any Trump talk, you might want to skip that section. Just sayin'.
Yes, there's all this and little bit more, so push play on the player below and enjoy!
The time is now! Meaning it's time once again for Jason and Shawn to take to the Interwebs for this, the extended cut of Friday's segment on the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show.

Speaking of Star Wars, Jason and Shawn sound off on the new Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian from Jon Favreau, Damons Wayans quitting Lethal Weapon, the Pet Semetary (spits) remake, and that Rambo 5 image where Sylvester Stallone looks the Marlboro Man (what up with that?).
Yes, you get all this PLUS the Friday segment for those who haven't heard it. And you can listen now via the player below.
Stick with us!
What happens when a couple of aging film geeks get philosophical, and start talking UFOs, science, God and life after death? The end of society as we know it? Yet are still able to tie it all into film and entertainment?
That is a question best asked before tuning into this, the extended cut of Friday's We Came from the Basement segment on the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Kamloops.
Oh, and you might also want to ask yourself what you look like while coughing. You've been warned.
Don't fret though, as Jason and Shawn still do what they do best -- talk movies! That includes their thoughts (well, Shawn's mostly) on the state of the DC Cinematic Universe. There's also a discussion on the quality of a film based on the number of days it takes to watch it.
