Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV

EP31 - Square Pegs “Halloween XII”

October 9, 2018

The Halloween season continues as we watch the ghost of 80s teen comedy, Square Pegs! It's a special halloween episode of a show we've never seen and know almost nothing about! Sarah Jessica Parker (queen of the three-namers) and the lovely Jaimie Gertz (why don't you just marry her, Mike!?) star in this short lived, but fondly remembered show.

Morgan sets the tone with a reading of one of her favorite poems, and drops some mad knowledge about screen legend Alan Ruck. Mike counts films in the Halloween series, wonders what Peggy is short for, and declares his love for Paris from Gilmore Girls. We also discuss the shocking lack of modern horror icons, different kinds of pajamas, and shame the show for not understanding how Ouija boards work! 

Cut the Shit:
Morgan: The Midterm Election: VOTE!!
Mike: Tales from the Crypt

Bonus: Halloween Safety
