It’s been seven years and it’s still not okay. On February 27th 2011, we watched in horror as The King’s Speech took home the Oscar for Best Picture at the 83rd Academy Awards. An Oscar that belonged to David Fincher’s The Social Network – right?!

Well you guys voted, and so in Episode 67 we revisit the woes of a generation to see if this once perfect movie has stood the test of time, and still remains the one true winner.

00:32:54 – 01:11:29 Main Discussion: The Social Network (2010)
01:11:30 – 01:15:48 Plugs and Goodbyes
