Scott and world weary private dick Lee watch Cast a Deadly Spell, an HBO joint from the early 90s. Magical chocolate meets noir peanut butter in this surprisingly good urban fantasy. Also tons Lovecraft lore before it was in literally (figuratively) everything.
Featuring: H.P. Lovecraft, people at cons who believe in magic, kung fu masters, industrial thaumaturgy, taunting the elder gods, The Maltese Falcon film and book, passive aggressive Batman, spoilers for The Automatic Detective, gargoyle nards, elder god outsourcing, and our tv show idea ‘Just Kidding, Cthulhu!’
