Retro Podcast Review: Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Nothing says classic Sci-Fi like the Gremlins, a unique one-of-a-kind franchise that gave us the unbelievably adorable pint-sized hero, Gizmo. When I heard John had never seen Gremlins before, I admit that I wanted to strangle him. How could he possibly not have enjoyed the classic gem that is the Gremlins? Luckily for us, we were able to get copies of the new Blu-rays. I was able to relive my childhood and John got a little piece of his back.
