December 10, 2019

Done marathoning The Mandalorian for the fourth time? Then why not listen to the newest Double Edged Double Bill? This week, Adam and Thomas take a look at the back catalogue of Disney+ with the help of returning guest Yonathan Habtemichael. First up the good feature is The Rocketeer, an underrated superhero film long before the studio owned a single Marvel character. Then our bad feature of The Country Bears, a forgotten attempt from Disney to turn a theme park attraction into a film that leaves one of our hosts speechless. Still, our intrepid heroes answer quite a few questions. Which The Office character sidelines as a nightclub singer? When did Christopher Walken embrace his silliness? Why are all the rules of the show being broken for next week's episode on The Simpsons? Listen to our super bear jamboree of an episode to find out!
