It's almost Christmas and that means it's time to celebrate a very special birthday. That's right join us as we celebrate the birthday of #SamanthaBaker played by #MollyRingwald in the #JohnHughes classic #SixteenCandles, also starring #AnthonyMichaelHall and #JohnCusack. Whilst we're on birthdays did you know that the film turned 30 this year? Join Wayne, Michelle and the two Justin's as we take a look at this cult teen comedy and see if it has stood the test of time.
Our series of 1984 retrospective episodes continue into our latest Christmas special with the 1984 Christmas classic, #Gremlins, directed by #JoeDante and presented by #StevenSpielberg. Through this episode we discuss the influence of Gremlins, the tightrope this film walks between horror and comedy, the absurdity of #PhoebeCates speech, and the film references throughout the movie. We also attempt to uncover whether the film references such as #SnowWhite and #InvasionOfTheBody Snatchers have any hidden meanings and if the Gremlins are an allegory for atheism.

In this episode, The SGS team discuss the modern #Christmas #CultClassic, #ErnestSavesChristmas. Through this discussion we focus on the legacy of the late, great #JimVarney (#BeverlyHillBillies, #ToyStory) and the irreplaceable comic brilliance he brought to the character of #ErnestPWorrell.
We also examine the formula of #Christmasfilms; we go off on a tangent about #DrWho and a few random topics of discussion, because you never know where a conversation about Ernest P. Worrell will take you.
