The Flop House Episode Thirty-Six is ONLINE

What's the perfect formula for a Christmas blockbuster? Take a character that only comics fans are familiar with, and give it to a first-time director who's only interested in recapturing the look of his own Sin City. Wait, blockbuster is an alternate spelling for "flop," right? We discuss The Spirit. Meanwhile we learn that Stuart is unpopular with South American police, Elliott takes us back to a magical time when shitty comics artists were considered celebrities big enough to appear in commercials, and Dan reveals a surprising a capella fan of the show.
