There's only one major movie release this week, but still lots to talk about in the world of all things entertainment. Who yah gonna call?
Jason and Shawn of course!
That's right, The Basement Boys are back for their latest extended cut podcast, which includes this morning's segment on the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show. And they're talking M. Night Shyamalan's latest, Glass, which is the third in a series of movies starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and James McAvoy.
Yup, Glass is the sequel to Unbreakable and Split, and there's much anticipation for this one.
But Jason and Shawn don't just talk Glass. Oh no. They review a new short film by D.J. Remark called Uphill, and reveal the importance of knowing your audience, especially when it comes to submitting your film for review.
They also chat Tidying Up with Marie Kondo (you read that right), the latest Project Blue Book episode, and a whole lot more. Suffice to say, this episode has a lot of shat going down, and you can hear it all by pushing play on the player below.

Last weekend there was nothing, but this weekend there's three big releases and one film in limited release that every horror fan needs to check out. And Jason and Shawn are here to tell you all about 'em!
For starters, scream queen Jamie Bernadette stars, co-wrote and produced the slasher movie The 6th Friend, and it's been granted a limited theatrical run today. How cool is that? Given the Basement Boys have seen it, and will put the flick on the chopping block, it could be very cool indeed. What'd they think? Stick with us!
And stick around for conversations on the History Channel's Project: Blue Book, 55 years of Days of Our Lives (WTF?) a Star Trek Cruise and whatever else comes across Jason and Shawn's brain pans.
You know, like whether or not you'd want to clone your now deceased loved ones, or go for a Pet Sematary scenario? That kind of thing.
And there's this morning's segment from the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show. Jason, Shawn and Howie talk Replicas, The Upside and A Dog's Way Home, among other things. It's radio that's so awesome... well, you know the drill. Push play and enjoy!
The Basement Boys are back for their first cast of 2019, and they've brought someone with them!
Well, in truth, former hop-farmer-turned-journalist-and-blogger Shannon Ainslie asked to join Jason and Shawn, as she's a fan of what they're slinging.
So the three not only discuss the phenomenon that is Bird Box, but whether or not the Sandra Bullock/John Malkovich vehicle is worth your time. They also touch on the Bird Box Challenge, which sees average folks attempting to navigate the world blindfolded like the characters do in the movie.
Think anyone is dumb enough to try that? Stick with us!
Shannon also learns Jason is capable of breaking anything, and Shawn can very easily trap himself in a car.
Plus there's the Friday segment from the Radio NL 610 AM Morning Show, in which Jason, Shawn and Howie take a look at the weekend -- and 2019's -- big releases.
You can hear it all right here, right now, by pushing play on the player below.
The headline pretty much sums it up for this, the last extended cut podcast of 2018.
Jason and Shawn ARE BACK one more time before the Christmas chaos begins, and they've brought the full 17-minute interview with Travelers co-star Leah Cairns with them. She stars opposite Eric McCormack in the Canadian sci-fi series, which just had seasons two and three drop on Netflix.
Leah discusses all aspects of the show, revealing insights into how it is made, how it became a bigger hit outside of Canada than in, and even teases a possible season four . . . kinda. Suffice to say, it's a great interview for her fans, fans of the show, and everyone in between.
But that's not all! Jason and Shawn review the sci-fi flick Beyond White Space, discuss their ideal geek Christmas presents and generally get a little obnoxious. AND there's the Friday morning segment featuring Howie from Radio NL, where the Basement Boys rundown all the movies opening between now and the New Year. That includes Aquaman, Bumblebee, Mary Poppins returns, and a bunch of other flicks.
So sit back, relax and push play. And note: we're back with all new episodes starting on the mighty Radio NL Jan. 4, with the extended cuts returning that same weekend.
Stick with us, and have a Merry Christmas!

We Came from the Basement wouldn't be what it is today if it wasn't for repeat guest John Fallon. The actor/writer/director/producer/stuntman/Arrow in the Head founder was Jason and Shawn's first guest, and he's become a friend and frequent collaborator. Heck, he even helped come up with the show's title.
Fallon updates audiences on his many projects, and he's brought actor/martial artist Marc Natoli with him to discuss their short film collaboration The Proposal, as well as update fans on his second directorial effort, Heretic, and the upcoming The Siege of Robin Hood.
The 15-minute interview is everything you'd want for a John Fallon interview, and introduces listeners to the next big thing in martial arts action -- Marc Natoli. This is a conversation everyone is gonna want to hear.
Meanwhile, Jason and Shawn to take aim at those who . . . well, took aim at the classic Christmas song Baby Its Cold Outside, and suggest a few other seasonal favourites this McCarthy-like witch hunt can target as well. And they review the second coming of Charles Bronson in Death Kiss.

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!

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.
