Episode 65 – Five Came Back

or: Overweight Tuscan Raiders Covered in Cheese Snacks


Three showed up for Five Came Back – the new Netflix documentary about John Ford, Frank Capra, John Huston, George Stevens, and William Wyler’s service in World War II. Is this epic, three-part documentary among the few and the proud? Or is it ultimately unworthy of the famous and heroic filmmakers? *PLUS* The Dudes discuss the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, Chris picks a bitter breakfast stout brewed for the chosen few, and Jake gives a week 7 FML recap and tries out his best Dan Carlin impersonation (spoiler – it’s terrible)! Forward march!
