Next up, M. Night Shyamalan infects moviegoers with "The Happening,"
starring Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel. After misfiring with the likes of "The Village" and "Lady in the Water," will Mr. Shyamalan return to Filmspotting's good graces, or will your hosts find reason to release some of their pent-up Hulk aggression? We warned you Mr. Shyamalan, don't make Filmspotting angry. Plus, in response to a summer filled with material based on popular TV shows, (we’re looking at you Miss Bradshaw, and you too Agent 99), Adam and Matty weigh in with their Top 5 TV Show Adaptations
Also on the show: Listener Feedback
, Massacre Theatre
and music by Shame Train

- Close/Next Show/Outtake + Extra VulgaritiesNOTES/CORRECTIONS
- Ed Norton is credited with having co-written "Hulk" with Zak Penn.
- Matty -- and maybe Adam as well -- referred to Bill Bixby as Bruce Bixby. And Bruce Banner as David Banner. The character's full name is David Bruce Banner. Didn't Bill Bixby go by David in the original series?
