We devote this entire episode to Christopher Nolan's newest film, Interstellar. We discuss what we liked and disliked about it. We also get into our interpretation of the ending. SPOILER ALERT!!!!! There are spoilers in this episode, but we don't get into that part of the discussion until the 42 minute mark. So if you haven't seen Interstellar yet please, for the love of God, do not listen past minute 42. We also talk about Birdman, True Detective, and the general state of both film and television. This Boat is about to take flight. Veering from the open sea into that final frontier. Prepare to enjoy the ride! Starting in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!
