He should be ashamed.


Ep. #22-The Country Bears



On this week’s episode, we tackle 2002’s THE COUNTRY BEARS, inspired by the classic Disney attraction. Who knew our first foray into G-rated fare would result in such profound talking points as the ethics of interspecies adoption, drug addiction, gender identification, and music appreciation?

And those are the positives. Who says what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? Oh, wait…
