Before the boys dive into the Shakespearian story of the sleepy hooker, they talk of all the things they've seen in the past week.

This week the boys have the wonderfully witty Dan Jopling back for another episode. His second Click reference to date sends all three down an Adam Sandler rabbit hole. They talk about the controversy surrounding Morgan Freeman, and a little Charlie's Angels, but you're clearly here for Klaus Kinski. The movie Crawlspace prompts many breeds of the German accent, and a short documentary from the director answers why everyone wants Mr. Kinski dead. Schau und hor zu!
