The Encounter (w/Ryan Gilbert)

It’s time for the Small-Screen Shameful of Listeners Choice Month… brace yourselves.


Listeners Choice Month continues with discussion of a Small-Screen Shameful (a film that never made it to the big screen) in the Pureflix film The Encounter starring… yes… Steve “Sting” Borden. The regular guest for wrasslin’-themed episodes, Ryan Gilbert, comes back to help the guys dissect a movie that is essentially a number of conversations in one location. It also stars a very rude and love-starved Jesus and the guys talk about the movie starting like a horror film set-up, inconsistent superpowers, how the ending LITERALLY spells it out for the viewers and much more. Plus: Nathan proves that he’s been everywhere.


Listeners Choice continues next week with discussion of the Vin Diesel-less sequel, xXx: State of the Union.
