 New Moon - Part 3 of 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 33:07

In this stunning non-conclusion, Bella and Edward both manage not to kill themselves, return to Forks, and everything is as if this book never happened. If only. We also learn why Edward and Bella love each other: She smells like the perfect ham sandwich to him.

 New Moon - Part 2 of 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 30:44

In part 2, our boys discover that teenage guys are just moody werewolves, Alice still has great hair, and cliff diving and trips to Italy are both viable options for suicide.

 New Moon - Part 1 of 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 40:05

In their (less than) triumphant return to the Twilight series, our boys groan their way through the first third of New Moon. The only good news to be found is that Bella wants to sleep with a large puppy dog.

 The Vampire Diaries Episodes 1 & 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 32:57

To warm us up for our return to Twilight, we checked out The Vampire Diaries on CW. It was probably less miserable than Twilight, what with there being sex and all, but the trend of emo vampires is regrettable.

 The Beautiful Life - Episodes 1 & 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 31:47

Shooting for a new low, we try to watch a show so bad The CW canceled it after two episodes. Will we like this show about the runway or will we run away?

 Cougar Town - Episodes 1 & 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 34:49

What's the worst thing you can say about a comedy? "It's not funny?" How about "It made me want to die?" Or maybe "This awful cast ruins a perfectly bad script?"

 The Lost Symbol Part 3 of 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 31:08

Our hosts welcome special guest Stephen, our official D.C. correspondent, to discuss his thoughts on the Lost Symbol. Spoiler alert: the book doesn't get any better (and the Masons really don't have anything to hide).

 The Lost Symbol Part 2 of 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 41:32

Dan Brown has scoured the earth (and the Internet) looking for symbols with which to create his puzzle. Yet his product is mostly just SIMPLE.

 The Lost Symbol Part 1 of 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:26

The only puzzle our boys need to solve is why do people like this crap?

 High School Musical | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 32:20

Without giving you the whole song and dance, here are the main problems with Disney's High School Musical: feeble plot, poor production quality, terrible acting, and a creepy, cult-like feel to the characters and situations. Still, it is without question the most enjoyable movie we've watched so far.

 Confessions of a Shopaholic (The Movie) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 33:24

There isn't much good to say about this movie, but it does contain this scene:

 BONUS! The New Moon Trailer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 7:46

The team sits down to watch the New Moon trailer. Want to watch along with them? Here's the one they watched:

 Trashing a Shopaholic Part 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 28:07

It feels like each book we read is dumber than the one before it, but maybe that's just because we don't remember pain as well as we feel it.

 Trashing a Shopaholic Part 1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 31:52

Our boys take down this classic of the Chick-Lit genre, more accurately titled "Inane Ramblings of a Shopaholic." Will they survive, or will they rush to get a refund on this purchase?

 The Notebook (The Movie) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 28:26

Is it better than the book? It's definitely not worse. But can the screenwriters solve the myriad plot and character problems? More importantly, would it be worse to watch old people die or screw? All this and more in today's episode.
