Derek and Michelle are back in town and ready to send two more movies to the second round.

Also, Michelle keeps her “mention Come and See” streak alive and Derek makes several embarrassing admissions regarding the classic movies he hasn’t seen yet.

Have you ever written an entire episode description, copied it because you were about to navigate away from the page, and then witness your life flashing before your eyes as you copy over everything you’ve already written?
