Official Show Notes[]

"There's just something about a terrible kids' movie that brings out the best (?) in us, so we dive headfirst into the CGI flop Legends of OZ: Dorothy's Return. Meanwhile, Stuart gives important advice to our kidnapped listeners, Dan inadvertently pitches the new hit movie Uncatchable, and Bizzarro Elliott makes an appearance."

Movie Summary[]


­Now, we had a big debate over whether or not we should watch this because I had trouble believing it was released in movie theaters, but apparently it was.
       —Elliott @08:58


Soon after her return to Kansas, Dorothy Gale finds herself whisked back to Oz to save her friends Scarecrow, Lion,Tin Man and Glinda from the Jester–the younger brother of the Wicked Witch of the West. The Jester is using his late sister's broomstick as a magic wand and is destroying Oz one yellow brick at a time. With new companions, Dorothy sets out to rescue old friends and restore order.
