The Midnight Drive-In: Endgame & Deathrow Gameshow

Reality TV just doesn’t cut it anymore so we have to take things to a higher level.  How about a live TV show where one person is the prey and has to fend off a band of hunters?  Or how about a gameshow where prisoners on deathrow try to win prizes for their families after their death or maybe even their freedom?  If either of these sound great then you’re in luck.  First off we’re talking Endgame.  After that we take a trip to the wackier side with Deathrow Gameshow.  Also we talk some Walking Dead, Daredevil, and The Meg.
