Movie of the Year 1988:
State of the Franchises
The Taste Budz–and two of their favorites from the Unnatural 20s podcast–have franchise fever and the only prescription is more franchise. That can’t be right. Why would franchises cure franchise fever? If anything they probably cause it, right? I bet the real prescription would be something like antibiotics. I think the point I’m trying to make is that the taste-friends are going to discuss how franchises were faring in 1988. Sequels, prequels, and squeakquels discussed with humor, grace, and friendliness.
