This audio is a little different. It isn’t a full episode of Rotcast, but mostly only the answer to the film quiz from the last episode, number 25. We are calling this new type of show a mini.
We reviewed Tic Tok Merlot 2009. It received a paltry 76pts. But the show is one of our best. Check it out. P.S.–I made a mistake and called the wine review #24. It’s #25.
Also you we learn the answer to the last Chapter and Verse movie quiz and hear the next mystery movie/book and director/author. We hi-jack another podcast to describe the 2012 Monster Bash (put on by my old high school buddy, Ron Adams). Enjoy.
We’re not worried. We reviewed the Super Tuscan Monte Antico 2007. Wine Enthusiast liked it. We didn’t. It received a low score of 62pts.
Rotcast is on location and we will be spending the night. We’ve agreed that the iron gates will be welded closed after we enter, for security reasons. Are you worried yet? It’s a Halloween episode!

Yes. The name of this episode is The Devil is in the Details I named it first, and then saw the movie Hanna. I thought that was serendipity. if you were going to do a show and wanted to find references to the devil on TV and in movies, you might be surprised how often it happens. Mostly these are from sayings that have been passed down as proverbs. “Speak of the the devil” is one which is shortened from “Speak of the devil and he appears.” Which is obviously a joke. Because if you believed a demon would show up, why would you make a saying like that? The act of warning someone about evil you bring on the evil. No one will thank you for that kind of warning. Thanks for speaking of the devil again…ass hat.
We will not be talking about the Devil much so don’t worry. But we might get into some details.
We review Casillero del Diablo a Carmenere from Chile. It has a great website: http://www.casillerodeldiablo.com
Rotcast Episode 21: Tenements
This is the first show in series 3. Each show is about a different book that became a movie. I’ve been reading the books to compare with the films. These shows are extended quizzes. See if you can figure out the mystery book/movie. We’ve supplied hints throughout the shows. For example the album art for this episode is a hint. (There are more hints if you listen!)
We’ve added these features to the show: Statements of the Obvious and Phoney Commercials. Of course there is still a big old wine review in the middle. Maybe you were part of it. Enjoy.
In this show we discuss famous fictional dwellings. We review Widow’s Walk Merlot wine and of course there is a mystery book/movie.Enjoy.
