The Carpet wraps a bow on 2018 with a Rad Ticket segment on a number of late-year new releases, with Whalen and Siblo discussing Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse and Pawlikowski’s Cold War, Siblo unfurling quick takes on Mary Poppins Returns, If Beale Street Could Talk, Vice, and Bohemian Rhapsody, and Whalen waxing ecstatic about the return of horror host Joe Bob Briggs. Then your Carpeteers approach the home stretch of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: The Return, discussing parts 15 and 16 of the Showtime limited series.
Enjoy a very Rad Christmas as the Carpet is visited by three spirits and a pair of beloved Dickens adaptations, with Thom and Tom snuggling up to the 1983 short feature Mickey’s Christmas Carol and the 1993 Brian Henson film The Muppet Christmas Carol in their Carpet Compares segment. Then your Carpeteers crash their sleighs into the majestic firs of Washington state, covering parts 13 and 14 of the Showtime limited series Twin Peaks: The Return.
After Siblo and Whalen Carpet Stain perhaps the stinkiest dud they’ve yet encountered, David Lynch’s famously mind-numbing 1984 sci fi epic Dune (3:05), your Carpeteers hunker down for an extended session on Twin Peaks: The Return, covering Parts 10, 11, and 12 (40:20).
