From the highest skyscrapers to the deepest catacombs, we're going high and low to examine Fritz Lang's highly influential silent science fiction epic Metropolis from 1927. Kyle Brunet joins us again as we discuss the film's metaphorical depiction of class warfare, compare the screenplay to the excesses of author Thea von Harbou's novel, and analyze the differences in the various versions of the movie. Warning: Contains explicit language, spoilers, and the beginnings of our pessimistic new show, Doomcast!!

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