Every year, we love to celebrate the holiday season with our listeners, and there is no better way to do that then with our 4th Annual Holiday Special!

It all started with a random idea, as Aaron and Scott were big fans of holiday specials, yet podcasts seemed to skip over the idea completely. Therefore, we decided we can do whatever we want here at The Hollywood Outsider, so let’s create our own tradition and the Annual Holiday Special was born!

Every year we do a little something different, so this year, we are Building A Perfect Christmas Movie! We all know what we love or loathe in Christmas flicks, so what would make our nice list for perfection? You’re about to find out.

That’s not all, oh no. The Christmas spirit kicks into overdrive as we open up and share our personal memories of the holiday season, as well as stories that remind us of Christmas. And no Holiday Special would be complete without a visit from the big man himself, so get ready as Santa Claus drops by the studio to read a few HO listener letters and reply directly.

With a special game from John, a little whimsy from Aaron, Scott’s annual Christmas Poem, and a lot of fun from everyone – This is the one podcast you don’t want to miss this holiday season!

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

And what better way to do that, than with a Hollywood Outsider Movie Battle Royale! Our hosts once again invite a guest to discuss our 8 favorite Nic Cage performances, and ultimately decide on the Cagiest Cage role in movie history! Get ready for a Nic Cage Match!

We might have taken the week off here from our 2017 Podcast Awards winning show, The Hollywood Outsider, but that does not mean we do not have quality entertainment to offer!

As you traverse the country, hunt for something to deafen family members, or just to ease the chaos of shopping; we have selected three of our most popular topics from earlier this year and combined them into on mammoth episode.

We kick things off with a quick review of Wonder and Radius, followed by those moments when our favorite TV shows jumped the shark. Next up, we discuss what it takes to craft a great season finale. And finally we arrive at the most heroic female characters in film and television.

If you are new to the show, here is a highlight reel of what listeners enjoyed earlier in the year. And if you are a long-time listener, enjoy three of your favorite topics all in one episode!

As our team takes a week off, we did not want to leave fans without an episode to peruse as you go about your day. Therefore, after a review of the recent Kenneth Branagh adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express, enjoy this sampling of topics from our Patreon exclusive offerings. If you want to support the show and partake in bonuses like this, head over to Patreon.com/thehollywoodoutsider and join in!

We discuss respectful celebrity homages, bad movie dates, several recommendations of smaller titles, and television shows we have tried repeatedly yet just cannot seem to understand the love.

Also on this Hollywood Outsider sampler platter, you can hear an exclusive edition of our Bad Movie Night podcast! Each month we dissect and decipher a seemingly awful film, and try to understand why some just might love it. As we close out this episode, you can finally learn the details of the infamous "Jamie Lannister Incident".

We all love TV shows, but sometimes we love a television series long after we should have parted ways on good terms. This week, we discuss when is that moment we walk away from a beloved TV show? Also, what current shows would we like to see changes from before we depart, as well as which ones we would love to see return in some form or another. 

Also on this week’s podcast: Aladdin turns 25, reviews of Thor: Ragnarok and A Bad Mom’s Christmas, Twilight Zone and Lord of the Rings return to TV, Disney is steamrolling theaters, women are finally claiming original spy franchises, and another round of Movie Innuendo. This time, in the form of Harry Potter!

Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a cage match against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor find it in himself to escape his chains, defeat a planetary system bent on containing him, and reach home before Hela, his sister, destroys Asgard once and for all. 

For this bonus episode, Aaron, Scott, and John are joined by listeners Steve and Michael to discuss Marvel's latest opus. The film boasts a Guardians of the Galaxy-like tone, does it work to the film's advantage? Or does it hinder a franchise?

Everything is up for discussion as we head into the arena and battle it out over Thor: Ragnarok!

Superhero mashups are becoming more and more prevalent these days. Hulk visits Thor, Batman visits Wonder Woman, Iron Man plays Uncle Ben in Spider-Man, they’re EVERYWHERE! But often times, studio rights keep our perfect pairings from ever happening. So this week, we pretend we live in a perfect world and discuss who our ideal superhero matchups would be!

And then, head over to Hawkins, Indiana as we discuss every single character and arc over Season 2 of Netflix’s Stranger Things. From Eleven’s journey to Mike’s absence to Bob Newby: Superhero. It’s all covered and things are about to get even stranger on this extended and spoiler-filled look at the biggest TV event since Game of Thrones!

Every Halloween we discuss horror movies and what we love or loathe about them. And every year, Hollywood doesn’t listen. But what if we held the power? The power to wield that axe like a maniac in a corn field? It’s time to put up or shut up, because on this episode, we are each going to build a perfect horror movie!

Also on this week’s podcast: Michael Bay is producing a Dora the Explorer movie, Magnum P.I. tries another reboot, Star Trek: Discovery opens the doors for network streaming channels, CGI takes on copyright lawsuits, reviews of The Archer, The Snowman, Wheelman, and 1922, upcoming releases including Jigsaw and Suburbicon, and much more.
