Toy Story Week is in full effect! So much so that we've broken the formula and gone for two breakdowns in a row and bringing you 'Toy Story 3'! Listen on as Daniel compares Woody to Jack Bauer, Dean tries to convince us that 'Everyone loves a Slinky', and we both debate the use of garbage cans in the United States!
 
As well as the breakdown, we give our 'Top 5 Threequels' and reveal who got the closest to our list and won some merch! We look at the Elite Eight results of our 'Best Film of the 1970's' tournament as well as the Final Four matches. And then after all of that, Dean chooses what film we're watching next/Dean chooses what film we're watching next/Dean chooses what film we're watching next!
