The latest Movie of the Month franchise special – which joins the ranks with the Back to the Future trilogy, the Godfather trilogy and the Airport franchise – is the Dirty Harry series, five movies following the busiest and seemingly most chaos-attracting detective in San Francisco.

Jay Cluitt was joined by Todd Liebenow, Jacob Lusk, Howard Casner and Dirty Harry superfan Richard Kirkham to discuss the franchise’s numerous ups, downs and carousel unicorns, diverting as ever to cover such topics as the high likelihood of Harry’s partners dying, to proper hotdog condiment etiquette. Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week and a couple of games of Last Lamb Standing.
