Shampoo

13 September 2022

Charlie is comfortable with his life just the way it is. But a chance encounter with a vendor of homemade bath products at a farmers’ market turns Charlie’s old, familiar life on its head. It’s a return to magical reality in our episode about shampoo, and we follow Charlie as he struggles to get back the life he lost—with a few important changes.

String

30 August 2022

Things get deep and philosophical on this episode… About string. Useful stuff, string, and in the story world we create, nearly everyone is connected to someone else via a string of fate that’s invisible to everyone but you and your soul mate. So what happens when a woman whose string was severed against her will meets a guy whose string is still intact?

Space Jam Sequel

23 August 2022

We shake things up a bit this week by taking a slight departure from our regular format. We still come up with a movie, but on this week’s episode we come up with a sequel to the 1996 film Space Jam. We know what you’re thinking: Isn’t there already a Space Jam sequel? There is, but it’s terrible, so we set out to come up with something better. We’re pretty sure we succeeded.

Post-it Notes

16 August 2022

It’s a darkly hilarious week when our Post-it Note movie takes a turn even we didn’t see coming. Our main character wants to add a little levity to the world with a secret-message scavenger hunt, but a series of accidental deaths cause authorities to suspect him of being a serial killer. Just when it seems like things couldn’t be any crazier, a real serial killer confronts our protagonist for squeezing in on his turf. Post-it Notes get him into the mess, but will they be his salvation?

Mac & Cheese

09 August 2022

Harkening back to the style of some of our older episodes, we take a looser definition of “Mac & Cheese” this week. The movie plot we create is a coming of age story about a couple of kids trying to work through things that even adults struggle with. The ending is bittersweet for our two main characters, and it’s possible we work through some things ourselves.

Contact Lenses

02 August 2022

If you could buy a contact lens that permanently repaired your vision, allowed you to see more colors, and gave you excellent night vision, would you buy it? What if the contact lenses were made from living tissue that eventually fused with your eyeballs? Still interested? This week, we “focus” on contact lenses that can do just that! The only trouble is, they’re made with… Let’s call it a foreign material, which has unexpected consequences.

Tupperware

26 July 2022

Let’s say it’s the 1980s and you’re new in town. To meet your neighbors and make some friends, you decide to host a Tupperware party. But some ditzy wannabes roll up to your crib, tell you that you’re invading their turf, and demand that you cut it out. What would you do? If you’re anything like the main character of our story this week, you take a chill pill, befriend a biker gang, and say, “yes way” to your future.

Oh, and those airheads from earlier? It turns out they’re members of a Satanic cult, and now they want to sacrifice you to appease the Dark Lord. Gag me with a spoon, right? I wonder if your new biker gang friends might be able to help you out with your little Satanist problem…

Washing Machine

19 July 2022

Imagine you and a stranger are suddenly teleported to a deserted island together, where you’re stuck for an entire year. Do you think you could survive? Do you think you might fall in love? What if the two of you weren’t on the island alone—what if there was a magical washing machine on the island with you?

This week’s episode focuses on a washing machine, and despite a bit of a rough start, we end up creating a fun romantic comedy about a couple of city-dwellers who have to set aside their differences to stay alive on an abandoned tropical island.

Padlock

12 July 2022

Can a couple’s relationship survive when a dark secret is revealed? That’s what we explore in this week’s episode about a padlock. After a young woman’s love goes unrequited, she takes what seems to her like a sensible step to lock down the man she loves. It works, but when he learns the truth about how their idyllic lives together got started, he begins to question their entire relationship.

Cat Toy

05 July 2022

What do Indiana Jones, Winston Churchill, Al Capone, and a cat toy have in common? Previously the answer was, “nothing,” but listen to this week’s episode and you’ll see how we manage to tie them all together. Joining us is special guest Peter J. Wacks, who brings more Hollywood experience than any of us can claim, as well as a few good puns.

Fireworks

28 June 2022

Independence Day in the U.S. is right around the corner, so we’re celebrating with a Fourth of July classic: Fireworks! On this episode, we create some teenage characters who live where fireworks are illegal, but that doesn’t stop them from trying to get their hands on some. Things go hilariously wrong, and it’s up to our quick-witted high schoolers to figure out how to set it all right—or at least get their hands on the season’s most popular fireworks.
