Season Two, Episode 7: Bellflower and The People Vs. George Lucas

Few people have enraged fanboys like George Lucas.

First, he created one of the most beloved franchises of all time. He followed up Star Wars by giving the world Indiana Jones. And there was much rejoicing, not only by movie fans, but by a generation that grew up with toys, comic books, bed sheets and a plethora of other tie-in merchandise.

Then came the Star Wars special editions, which created an unease matched only by the prequels. The less said about them the better. Top that off with a lackluster fourth installment in the Indiana Jones series and you've pretty much got one of the most hated figures in entertainment today.

Tonight, The Basement Dwellers take on The People Vs. George Lucas, a documentary that examines Lucas, his works, and the people's displeasure with the way everything worked out. As a tie-in of their own, Jason, Shawn and Cameron "The Establishment" Thompson unleash The George Lucas Death Clock. Have the boys put out a contract on one Mr. Lucas? Or is the clock something far less sinister? Stick with us!

But first Shawn and The Establishment wade into a post apocalyptic wasteland -- kinda -- with the adventure/romance Bellflower, a film that proves Shawn isn't the only one preparing for the end of the world.

Throw in some lively music, witty banter and the winner of  The Basement's Win A Chat With A Scream Queen contest and Friday night radio would be hard pressed to find a better hour than this. It all begins at 10 p.m. PST on www.thex.ca, Shaw Cable 106.1 and 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops.

Now for a look at tonight's films:
