The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" have returned from a brief break with more movie discussion and news takes and are combining the Phillip K. Dick-inspired sci-fi movie, "Paycheck," John Woo's last American movie, with the 2016 Sundance indie "Southside with You" that chronicles the first date of a young Barack and Michelle Obama. The guys debate whether an interesting movie could be had with either premise (hint: one of them, no way) and create a far more interesting new project on the fly.

Episode 322 includes:
-Dr. Who getting new showrunner starting with the next season, and it's Russel T. Davies, the old showrunner.
-Marvel is suing the estates of its dead creators. Is this the next chapter in Phase Four?
-Evan Hansen is a monster and "Dear Evan Hansen" is a deeply misguided musical and movie.
-Ben just gives up with "Venom: Let There Be Carnage."
-Switch the Pitch -- "Paycheck" / "Southside with You"
-The guys discuss the disappointing John Wood-Ben Affleck sci-fi action movie and 2016's rambling would-be romance of the Obamas on the first date back in the day. They then combine both mediocre movies into a better pitch for a new project involving presidential time travelin' intrigue.
