Reopening the Wormhole is a weekly podcast in which three Deep Space Nine obsessives tackle a randomly selected episode from the series and analyze all the things they love and hate about it. Each week, they'll try to determine the funniest lines out of context, deliver their very official review scores and much more! Make sure to stick around until the end, so you don't miss it when they spin the Dabo wheel to reveal next week's episode! 

Featuring Jack Stovold, Sam Stovold and Kevin Young 

Dec 24, 2020

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good… FRIGHT? The boys are back in their Christmas best to talk about yet another Christmas-based property that has a tangential relationship to Star Trek. It’s the 2015 Canadian horror anthology A Christmas Horror Story, starring none other than William Shatner as drunken radio DJ Dangerous Dan. The guys have fun talking about this middling film and the varying qualities of the stories in the anthology, including one about Santa murdering zombie elves. As always, several digressions take place, as Kevin talks about his Coen Bros journey, and then an email from a listener opens up a much larger conversation about film. So spread the holiday cheer by listening to these three buffoons blabber on about this silly movie, and its many highs and lows. Have a merry Christmas, listeners, and a happy New Year! And don’t let Krampus, the vile enemy of Christmas, find you!
