Season 7, Episode 5 (Originally released on May 2nd, 2023)
On this episode of the SLPS, Michael and Nick are discussing the made-for-TV movie MAZES AND MONSTERS which is on both of their Shame Lists. Nick is a big D&D nerd, so the chance to finally watch this Tom Hanks oddity is a long-time coming. On this episode, they discuss whether or not this film is “For” or “Against” D&D, LARPing vs D&D, Tom Hanks acting prow
ess, Jim Hanks, Rona Jaffe and their intent, and what we’d like to see from a MAZES AND MONSTERS remake.
