E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (Commentary)

It's been 40 years since the release of Steven Spielberg's heartwarming (and heart-glowing) blockbuster E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and we're celebrating with a full commentary track for the movie. Listen as we wax nostalgic about Star Wars toys and Atari games, note the film's parallels with other Spielberg productions such as Close Encounters and Poltergeist, and ponder why there are so many Raggedy Ann dolls in the Taylor household. Listen for our countdown to start your copy of the movie. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and some inarticulate crying.

Our theme song is "Nostalgia TV" by Edward Jonathan Blakeley through Lynne Publishing.

Want to share your memories of E.T.-mania circa 1982? Is there a better film product placement than this movie's use of Reese' Pieces? Do you think the Atari 2600 E.T. game is the worst video game ever made? Leave a comment and keep the conversation going.
