There is an entertainment precedent for June's theory that perhaps as Sleepwalkers the characters are not Mother and Son, but perhaps just buddies or co-workers. I present exhibit A - the sitcom THIRD ROCK FROM THE SUN - in which the aliens appear as a family, but are different ages and are not related. This will be known in future episodes as the THIRD ROCK FROM THE SUN defense.

Or it really is incest.

This was an all time classic episode for me. I've listened to it like 5 times since last Friday.

Totally agree! I didn't totally enjoy watching the movie like I do with some of the others that are enjoyably bad watches, but everything about the ep was fucking wonderful. I love the change-up in the dynamic of studio eps; I love any time June is able to make it (although I'm 100% understanding of why she's had to be out a bunch over the last year or so); and I am SO happy that LL is finally on an ep. It all just turned into the perfect storm of amazingness.

And much like June's Sleepwalkers theory, the THIRD ROCK FROM THE SUN aliens kept the family pretext as their "inside joke" ;)

This episode reminded me of watching Children of the Corn. There's a scene in Children of the Corn that literally made me cry laughing because of the ridiculous CGI. Please do this movie for your podcast. It would be awesome.
