Dirty Sons of Pitches

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are looking at stories that incorporate their own authors in honor of the new “Goosebumps” film that features Jack Black as R.L. Stine. The guys also complete the last of their watch of the best of the worst episodes of ‘Criminal Minds’ though no imaginary marionette dwarves this time. They also debate the new job opportunities for unemployed trombone players, whether Ben Affleck is responsible for Bill Finger finally getting Batman credit, the majesty of Bryan Fuller as a showrunner, a crossover with JEM and G.I. Joe and Transformers, where the Aeon Flux movie failure should go, Ian McKellen’s mission to play all iconic characters, whether Goosebumps is a series that still has some cultural relevance out of nostalgia, Eli Roth’s first films as a director since 2007, and “rape dolls” from ‘Criminal Minds.’
