  1. Could you make an episode about movie "Roswell" (1994)? It would be really interesting to hear what was going on behind the scenes and in front in this movie based on real events.

  2. Needless unfunny wise-ass religion bashing.

    2. I think you guys upset a Scientologist! I thought Battlefield Earth wasn't supposed to be connected with the greater canon of Scientology?
