  1. I am not a Scientologist. Battlefield Earth the movie is terrible. Having said that, Battlefield Earth the book is one of my guilty pleasure reads that I revisit every decade or so.

    The baffling thing is most of the infamous plotholes Diana listed in the podcast are things that were addressed in the book. Contemporary military equipment are rusted hulks. Fort Knox was stripped in the initial invasion. It’s like the writers took every single plothole their God Emperor closed up and thought “let’s shit all over that!”

    I have to say, though, that Battlefield Earth: The Movie and Battlefield Earth: The Book have nothing on Battlefield Earth: The Flamethrower! Wait… wrong franchise. They have nothing on Battlefield Earth: The Audiobook.

    That thing has insane production values and lots of A-list Hollywood talent because, y’know, Scientology. Best of all, though, is a young boy character who is played by none other than Nancy Cartwright. And she apparently doesn’t have much range because it sounds like Bart Simpson has been dropped straight into the audio Saga of the Year 3000 (TM).

    It. Is. Amazingly. Bad. But in the best possible way. Well worth an Audible credit if you want a laugh.

  2. I hate Andrew Dice Clay. I don’t understand how his sophmoric misogynistic humor got so popular, though as I type that I totally know who it did. Totally agree with Sarah that they make the joke on the women not tolerating his nonsense.

    Betty White was ahead of the curve on that Facebook monolouge. Though I may add/replace Twitter.
