55: Mindhunter

What evil lurks in the minds of men? That's how the saying goes, right? Or is that not even close? Regardless, it's definitely a question—the same question at the heart of this episode because Andrew is pitching the Netflix Original Series, Mindhunter! The FBI agents of that show aren't afraid to delve into the dark place that is a killer's psych, so Eric and Marcus better not be either! Hooooo boy! It's gonna get disturbing, kiddos! This one isn't for the weak of heart. Or stomach.

51: HamFiction #3: Marcus writes Mad Men

This week, we're going MAD! ...ison Avenue as Marcus writes the sixties-set, smoke-filled, booze-soaked drama, Mad Men! Meanwhile, your hosts may be legitimately going mad. Like the "crazy" kind of mad. Why? Because Eric and Marcus believe they're on a ham-themed show, and Andrew may be losing sight of what's real and what's make believe! And how does Mad Men fit into their salty scheme? Because it stars Jon Hamm, of course! That makes sense, right? Right? NO! It doesn't! That was a test! It doesn't make sense because there's no such thing as HamFiction! There never was! It's all smoke and mirrors, people! You've been duped by a couple of sham-artists! My, how fitting! It was a SHAM all along! Being tricked doesn't feel good, does it? Just remember, I tried to tell you. Now, please excuse me. I'm going to take up smoking. <3 Andrew

39: Marcus writes Stranger Things

Our next Spooky-tober stop is in Hawkins, Indiana. 1983. A boy named Will Byers has vanished, and it doesn't feel like an ordinary incident. There's been a lot of movement at a nearby government facility ever since; Will's mom, Joyce, swears that her son has been communicating to her through lightbulbs; and Will's friends have met a weird girl with a shaved head near where he disappeared. Our man Marcus is on the case, but he'll soon realize these aren't normal things, nor simply strange things. These are... Stranger Things!

36: Marcus writes Mr. Robot

Hello friends. Are you ready to take back control of your lives? Oh, we know what you're thinking. "You're mistaken, ShamFiction guys. I'm in control of my life." WRONG! You are not! We see that Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte in your hand and your eyes glued to that iPhone screen. You've lost control, friends. The corporations own you. Luckily, we've met the guy who's going to change everything. We'd like you to meet him, too, so you'd better listen to this week's episode. His name is Mr. Robot.

Mr. Robot: Season 1 (Blu-ray + DIGITAL HD)
$23.45
Starring Rami Malek, Christian Slater

10: Eric writes The X-Files

Forget Area 51, Roswell, or our secret reptilian overlords, the real conspiracy this week is how Eric went 20+ years without seeing a single episode of The X-Files. At least that gives us an excuse to join Special Agents Mulder and Scully, the FBI’s most spooky, for an investigation into the unexplained and paranormal.
