Series 7: The Contenders (2001) Movie Poster

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM’s number has been ‘randomly selected’ and now we’re forced to compete in a game to the death called ‘Series 7: The Contenders’! This film, which some call a scathing indictment of reality television, is directed by Daniel Minahan and stars Brooke Smith, Glenn Fitzgerald, and Will Arnett!

We also offer up our opinions on the reality TV trend and discuss similar movies like ‘Battle Royale’, ‘The Hungers Games’, and ‘The Running Man’!

Will we fall victim to a self-inflicted knife wound to the back or will love tear us apart…again?  Tune in to find out on this very special episode of: ‘THE MILKSHAKE BOOM’!
