The boys are part of a wild bunch in this episode, as they discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of a movie genre with some true grit. It's all about Traditional vs Revisionist Westerns!
Ben dons his white bowboy hat arguing for the traditionalist side of things. Nick argues come hell or high water for the revisionist version of westerns. Which side will Ryan judge for?
Discussion points include: black hats, Clint Eastwood, gender roles, character studies, popcorn movies, Sam Peckinpah, American film history, the Sand Creek Massacre, communists, High Noon, and sky westerns.
