About this Episode

In our second audience choice episode, Kingdom of Heaven just barely beat out The Dam Busters! But this may have been to our detriment, as us hosts collectively had to watch...something like fifteen hours' worth of this movie. And then we had the meta-struggle of deciding whether to cut our own short and long versions of this very episode!

In the end, we pulled together what we thought was the best of both worlds: a deep dive into Ridley Scott's phenomenal set design, swords and armor and all; and a conversation about the deeper meanings behind this film in a freshly post-9/11 world. Join us in the late 12th century as we parse out the historical from the not-so-much, in our crusade to find out if this 2005 epic still holds up.
