Episode description

The Princess Bride and Lady in the Water

Nostalgia can be tricky. Do I like this thing because I saw it when I was a kid, or do I find it genuinely compelling? The Princess Bride, Directed by Meathead from All in the Family and starring Major Cabot Forbes and Claire Underwood, relays the story of a Grandpa reading to his sick grandson. "Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles"; this movie has it all. Lady in the Water, directed by the man who brought you The Last Airbender and starring the supervillain Rhino and the superhero Silk Spectre (II) is the story of an apartment complex, its residents, and a foretold fate.
