EPISODE 5: THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES

EPISODE 5: THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES

In our fifth (sixth) episode (and longest to date), we turn our attention to the 1950 novel The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury as well as the resulting 1978 TV miniseries. Mike tries to keep his lust for Jenna Coleman in check (can he do it?), Brent ends up with a LOT of homework, and Mike and Brent debate the limits of political correctness and censorship before finally deciding that the answer to all things may be to disappear into the wilderness for a while.
