IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!  In this episode we return to the popular post-apocalyptic genre looking at two of last year’s film parodying the Biblical account of end of the world, This is the End and Rapture-palooza.  In addition, we reveal our opinion of the new HBO series “The Leftovers.”  Also, take note of the plugs for two documentaries that (as of the time this podcast is first published) are currently in crowd-sourced fundraising campaigns. The links for both are below.

Episode Twenty Six: Hellboy and Save Me

SaveMeHellboyCelebrate Independence Day weekend with a new podcast from Checking the Gate. We evaluate the religious merits of the Hellboy movies and the short lived series “Save Me.” Our Hellboy discussion, admittedly, is merely an excuse to talk about Guillermo Del Toro’s new film Pacific Rim out July 12. But our discussion about “Save Me” get heated; Mike decries its quality while Robert defends it from those who judge without merit.
