The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have triumphantly returned after a long though busy break. They have a lot of movies to cover and in honor of the new gritty, R-rated "Joker" film they will be pitching solo ventures in the same dark vein for Batman's other villains. The guys wind up an extra long podcast by channeling the spirit of Gene Shalit to come up with absurd blurbs for a selection of the movies reviewed.
