We're on the verge of the most wonderful time of the year --
spooky season is almost upon us! With that said, we tackle a very
serious topic in Episode 67: What is horror?
Seriously, since everyone is debating whether "It" is a horror

- Olivia de Havilland’s lawsuit against FX and
Ryan Murphy for her depiction in “Feud” has moved forward. The
defamation lawsuit will begin on Nov. 27.
Lord and Chris Miller have moved back to TV after being fired from
the Han Solo movie. They are developing a series at ABC titled “We
Can Do Better.” It’s about a “newly ‘woke’ soccer mom who must
navigate life in the south as a parent, wife, American citizen, and
daughter of hardcore conservative parents.” The pilot script was
written by “Community” and “Last Man on Earth” alum, Liz
