I’m not sure what was more unlikely – a humanoid duck named Howard being dragged from his home on a duck-filled planet by a giant space laser, or Howard the Duck winning the Movie of the Month poll, but here we are.

Jay Cluitt was joined by the film’s champion, The Vern, as well as Todd Liebenow and Damien Riley to discuss this so-called new breed of hero, and the many, many things wrong with this film.

Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a game of Last Lamb Standing.
