"That kid next door is a meatball!" This week we're discussing the 1989 Joe Dante horror comedy "The Burbs." Special topics for your consideration include: a lesson in Pittsburghese, the purpose of Corey Feldman and the joys of Tom Hanks, toupees, Germans, teens, Geraldo Rivera and the ennui of suburban living.
Allen has a theory that this movie takes place in the same universe as "Fright Night" and "Monster Squad." You should check out our episodes on those movies, numbers 22 and 100 respectively and let us know if you agree.
Have you seen this one? What do you think? Also, related: what's your favorite Tom Hanks movie?

You can also email us for our segment "MAILBAG!" at firstname.lastname@example.org and if you're feeling super generous, leave us an iTunes rating and review.
