It's a helluva thing... writing a sham. Eric and Marcus should know that more than most. In this episode, they have to bear the heavy burden of shamming Unforgiven, Clint Eastwood's Best Picture-winning western from 1992. In preparation for writing, they'll have to reckon with all their misdeeds from when they were younger, crueler men and channel that pain and guilt into their prose. Or maybe they won't do that. Maybe they'll just have a good time tackling the western genre! Come to think of it, why does Andrew keep pitching these heavy properties? Didn't we just sham that silly Species movie last time? Why don't you do something like that, Andrew? You trying to impress us with your refined taste in "prestige" film and TV, Andrew? Get over yourself, ANDREW. And enjoy the show, listeners!
