This week the guys are celebrating the 100th episode of Here Be Spoilers! And to do so, they completely failed to sit down and watch a movie!

Instead, they decided to talk about what they've been through in the pursuit of entertaining the masses. (If you are willing to broaden your definition of "masses" to include "the ten-to-twelve people who listen to this show, even sporadically", that is.)

They talked about the shows they enjoyed doing, the ones that were the hardest to do, the movies that ended up being favorites, and the ones that made them want to peel the skin of their own heads.

Along with that, there are some sound clips, some discussions about the future of Here Be Spoilers, and congratulations all around.

And then came the awesomeness.

First, the guys got to hear a recorded clip that was sent to them by their British pal @redtache. You have to hear it to truly appreciate it.

Next, there was the Big Honkin' Interview! The guys had a nice, long interview with their buddy, VFX ninja and Con Man Executive Producer Billy Brooks and Make-up Effects genius Barry Bishop!

Billy's been hard at work, getting stuff finished for season 2 of Con Man, but he took time out to share some cool stories about how he got to where he is, and where he's going from here. He also shared some neat stuff about some of the great people he has met, and how a trip to the BBC led to him getting to walk on the holy ground of Nerd Mecca,

Barry regaled the guys with his own experiences making zombies for a theme park, a dead body for Space Station 76 Director Jack Plotnick's Broadway play Disaster!, and his and Billy's sneaky marriage this year, exactly one year after he proposed to Billy on the stage at SDCC in Hall H during the Con Man panel. His explanation for them just sneaking off to do it is, to Derek at least, completely reasonable.

Also, they both praise the amazing people they've been lucky enough to meet in their work, and how glad they are to know them.

Billy and Barry finish out their call by offering up some awesome advice for anybody who wants to do stuff, but isn't sure whether or not it can be done.

Finally, the guys wrap everything up by talking about what movies they want to watch for the show in the upcoming 100 episodes, and shout outs to all the great folks who have been a part of the show up to this point.

All of us at Ugly Couchcast Industries want to thank all of you that have hung with us so far, and hope that you continue to as we move forward into the weirdness!

Now grab this week's episode and celebrate with us!
