Episode Two (4/14/18) - Playoffs Round 1!


Summary: The Spy, feeling ennui, goes to a suicide prevention center, where the chipper woman working there doesn't really seem to understand the depths of his despair and is more intent on ordering a pizza, no anchovies. The Spy explains he is weary of his life of casual murder and meaningless flings with beautiful women. But he is snapped out of his reverie by the arrival of the pizza man, who he shoots dead. You see, The Spy sees all - and he knows that the pizza has anchovies. Poison anchovies.

Episode Three (4/21/18) - Playoffs Round 2!

Summary: Two film critics host a retrospective on the "L'Espion" film series; one of them thinks the series is just good fun, while the other critiques it for embracing casual murder, misogyny and quasi-fascistic politics. They talk about how the franchise had to recast its lead with each film, then present a clip from the surreal and psychedelic third film in the series, made in the late 1960s, in which The Spy is disguised as a mime who massacres a group of go-go dancers with a gun disguised as a loaf of French bread..
