This fortnight, Alastair and Nick continue their regular Aaron Sorkin coverage with The Trial of the Chicago Seven, then make a nod to Halloween in Lovecraft Country.

But first, Nick’s read new Hollywood-vampire graphic novel Dracula, Motherfucker! while Alastair’s seen timely sequel Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm.

And, speaking of Sacha Baron Cohen, they then tell you about The Trial of the Chicago Seven (11:44, ending spoilers from 27:34) and whether Aaron Sorkin’s writing style can even overwhelm history.

Lastly this spooky season, they float on down to Lovecraft Country (31:25) season 1, with lots of general chat about specific episodes, although surprisingly not giving away the ending.

This fortnight, Nick and Alastair tackle the growth industry of TV series based on popular movies, with the new Snowpiercer show and the second season of What We Do In The Shadows.

But first, they touch on the recent Warren Ellis news, before Alastair talks up the latest Ben Aaronovitch Rivers of London novel False Value, and Nick ecstatically reviews the new Harley Quinn animated series.

And then they launch into covering the first five episodes of Snowpiercer (12:37), complete with chat about how it compares to the cult movie (surprisingly Alastair’s seen it while Nick hasn’t), the American TV drive to turn everything into a cop show and a few implied spoilers for the fourth and fifth episodes.

Lastly, Nick and Alastair catch all the way up on What We Do In The Shadows (24:49), with talk of all their favourite characters, heavy admiration for Matt Berry and, surprisingly, the fact they’ve both seen the original film.
