Dinner for Fiends – Wrath of the Space Baby

If you like Dinner for Fiends episodes that consist mostly of us jabbering about nothing of great importance, then this nearly two-hour installment is going to be music to your ears.
Myself, Uncle Creepy, Matt Fini, Buz, and (for about a half-hour) Andrew Kasch have returned for a Dinner for Fiends that might leave you with indigestion of the mind.

Everything starts off fine as we discuss in spoiler-y details the season finale of “The Walking Dead”. That’s when I make the grave mistake of bringing up the outrageous online meltdowns people are having over the ending to the video game Mass Effect 3, and suddenly the show turns into a Matt Fini therapy session. You’ll hear in painstaking detail why this game broke Fini’s heart and left him a bitter, broken shell of a man.

Then the technical difficulties begin as Space Baby tries desperately to remind me why I continue to be no fan of Skype.

But on the plus side, I think this might be the first DFF in ages that is 100% rape-free.

From there the Amanda Seyfried serial killer flop Gone gets spoiled, as does the Halle Berry shark dud Dark Tide, even more so the indie chiller ATM. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance gets burned as well. You’ll also hear our thoughts on the trailers for Dark Shadows and Prometheus. We’ll top it off with some viewer mail for dessert.

Dinner is served.

Editor’s Note
What you’re about to listen to came within a hair of being a lost episode. For whatever reason we were riddled with technical difficulties, which led to Buz nearly killing himself cutting together the original recording with Foy’s back-up recording. Yes, the Foywonder saved the day. It took over a week but Buz managed to Frankenstein it together for you. Yes, you will hear the occasional weirdness and interference. The only thing we can do is blame it on the Space Baby. Sorry for the mess. Won’t happen again.

    You’re actually offended people assume you know Stephen King? I’d be flattered. Heh.

    • The Buz

      I don’t think any where in there did any of say we were offended. Who the hell would say that? Who would say that and be completely serious by it? I think we just thought it was hilarious.

      • Terminal

        You described it as “racist.” I know it was meant as a joke.

        • The Buz

          That’s because Fini is racist.

  • Terminal

    If “Creature” is a misunderstood gem, then Michael Bay is ahead of his time.

  • nazo

    I don’t think I’ll ever be able to watch 2001: A Space Odyssey or listen to Also Sprach Zarathustra the same way again.

    That Elm Street rhyme at the end was turning into an epic, which would be an interesting creative direction for that property. “The Ballad Of Frederick Krueger”, an epic poem in three acts.

    Anyway, great episode as usual, and I thought it showed that having a worthwhile movie to talk about isn’t really necessary to record DFF 🙂

    Thanks Fini, it is nice to know that one of you has read F Paul Wilson. Hopefully the Repairman Jack movie will get off the ground and not suck all over the place like The Keep.

    And Buz, “You shut your dirty mouth, Foy” in reference to comparing a shitty movie to Jaws made my day.

    • Masked Slasher

      Thanks for listening!

      I hear ya on Repairman Jack … it’s been in development hell for what feels like an eternity, but there’s so much potential for a great franchise there.

  • Genrewriter

    Good stuff as usual, guys.

  • Rottenjesus

    Another highly enjoyable two hours of incredibly entertaining bullshit!

    That editing of Matt’s epic explanation of MASS EFFECT 3’s ending was sheer genius.

    • The Buz

      Thank you.

  • kiddcapone

    Hahaha, a couple more suckers gleefully sashayed down the Yellowbrickroad….feel my pain bitches, feel it….

    With that being said, it’s time to bump up ATM on my Netflix queue…

    • Uncle Creepy

      No dude … don’t do it!

      • BoyWonder513

        I know I may regret it, but you guys made it sound so damn bad it’s funny, so I’m probably going to watch it, too.
        Also, thanks for reading my e-mail, really appreciate all the pointers.

    Agh, gonna have to be careful with my fast forward; missed out on the second half of Walking Dead series 2 due to work. Don’t wanna hit anything spoilerish. I’ve avoided anything related to WD, though I’ve heard the second half is meh; still wanna watch it.

    Idea for future (if it’s not too much of a headache); could there be a segment counter in the article for spoilerish sections? Such as: “Discussing Ending for Prometheus 11:42-21:34” or something along those lines for listeners to safely skip over those portions?

    • Foywonder

      Skip past 8:40 – 28:00 to avoid THE WALKING DEAD finale discussion

      Skip 29:00 – 39:00 to avoid Fini’s MASS EFFECT 3 spoilers and ranting

      Skip 39:15 – 49:00 to avoid GONE spoilers (Yeah, heaven forbid that gets spoiled!)

      Skip 49:30 – 58:45 to avoid ATM spoilers

      Skip 59:00 – 64:00 to avoid DARK TIDE spoilers

      Skip 73:20 – 77:15 to avoid SILENT HOUSE spoilers

      GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE review isn’t terrible spoiler-ish given there’s next to nothing to spoil.

      Does that help?
