– Show Notes –
The Wachowski siblings stepped into the spotlight with their explosive success on The Matrix. While often being described as private or even reclusive, they have been a creative force to be reckoned with. With their latest offerings falling out of favor both critically and publicly- Team Diabolical is very curious about what lies ahead for this visionary duo.

M. Night Shyamalan
When it comes to the curse of early success in Hollywood, there’s only one name that is immediately conjured; M. Knight Shyamalan. Having been the toast of Tinsel Town very early on with The Sixth Sense, the accolades and praise steadily evaporated for the director with each passing film. Can M. Night stage a grand comeback and reclaim his early success? Anything can happen in Hollywood… though, this one is going to take one hell of a twist ending.

This Week’s Dope
Eric Theriault (@ on twitter) – If you’re a fan of the 80’s and looking for something that’s sure to put a smile on your face, look no further than the youtube profile of one of our favorite diabolicals, Eric Theriault. Linked below is a clip from his great Johnny Thunder series… but if you’re really looking to get your day started off right, check out his Paradiso Del Fuego video. It’s his take on a Spanish Soap Opera and was responsible for triggering my dope receptors. Cheers, Eric!
Arkham Origins – In the shadow of Rocksteady’s dark and immersive Arkham series, Warner Brothers Montreal and Splash Damage Studios handled the Batman sequel designing one of my favorite boss battles in a while. Arkham Origins pits you in a cage match against rising villain Deathstroke and my dope ensues. Cheers to both studios for brining this moment to life.
