The gang cover the weekend box office actuals, address fan feedback: count 'em not one but TWO "Stump Steven" challenges, and discuss the topic of major studios releasing concurrent films of similar theme that are meant to compete at the box office. What makes studios do this? Why does one film do better than the other at the box office? Can a knock off be better than the original? Can James Cameron ever make a film better than "Deep Star Six"? Who let the dogs out? Woof? Woof? Woof? Woof?
