In this show:

* No Alex this week. She has the typhus. Boo.

* The boys talk video games, and wax nostalgically about old-timey (to think of it!) adventure games.

* The journalists discuss the far-reaching implications of the Writers’ Guild strike, and how it’s created a very unfortunate Film Drought.

* But film production continues! Reginald builds up the courage to contact the Internet to show us trailers for the aforementioned upcoming Film Drought productions.

* We receive a cryyyyptic letter from the Queene Of The Faeries.

* Is Jimmy Buffet yacht-rock? You decide.

* And hey. Happy Thanksgiving. Give someone you love a hug.
