With a world starved for content, the Simplistic Reviews Podcast is here to show you how low the bar has fallen. With the help of Jay Cluitt from Life Vs Film, Jeanette Ward from The Mundane Adventures of a Fangirl, Nicholas Rehak, Steven C. Phillips from Altered Geek, and Todd Liebenow from Forgotten Films, Simplistic Reviews presents their two-part exposé on Sesame Street. The fellas also discuss which movies are to die for if ever the theaters open back up. And we top it all off with a game in which choices will have to be made on which fictional character is allowed to marry Justin and Matt's daughters. All that and more on this untested and very sick episode of the Simplistic Reviews Podcast.
Remember when Mom would say, "Stop playing with those damn turtle action figures, get out of the house and go play outside!?"
Boy times have changed...
Since we cannot play outside we decided to get together with our fellow podcasters and listeners, our friends, and watch 1990s classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles online with the Netflix Party Extension.
So grab that facemask, wash those hands and join us during the quarantine.
Big thanks to Freddy and Greg from MISCAST for joining!
