Pop Medieval Ep 5: To Hell with Hellboy

Welcome to Mov-ember! The next three episodes will be dedicated to Medieval-themed movies, so get ready to have some fun watching a movie then listening to two dorks talk about it afterward (because THAT’S never been done before, right?)

In this episode, Doc and Nina look at Hellboy 2019 (the one NOT directed by Guillermo del Toro) because – surprise! – it’s a King Arthur story. They talk about why Arthur is a boring subject to make into a film, discuss the choice to replace Morgan Le Fay with Nimue, and finally settle the argument of who makes the best Hellboy.
