Episode #97 – Shows Within Shows

One of the little talked about, but fun aspects of a TV show or movie is the world that exists within that world.  Some of our favorite characters have an affinity for TV, movies, and comics just like us. We’re looking into some of the most memorable fictional creations that themselves reside within some of our favorite works of fiction. Join us as we celebrate the shows within shows and stories within stories our favorite characters love and celebrate.
