And finally, we plug a truly topical Halloween decoration, Geeky Jean plays favorites, and Celebrity Deathmatch ditches the glasses and milk to find out who’s actually super.
Oh, and don’t forget Tim’s Sack. It’s just scary the things we always seem to find lurking in there.. I’ll be sure to wear some gloves this time.
