#137: Split / Unconventional Superhero Stories

It’s M. Night Shyamalan’s shared universe and we’re all just living in it in this episode of SVU, in which Matt and Alison debate whether SPLIT is the comeback vehicle it’s been heralded to be for the director, as well as how the movie’s late-revealed connection to another Shyamalan title changes its context. Then they offer up recommendations for some other convention-defying superhero stories on both film and television, all available to stream right now.

This episode of Filmspotting: SVU is brought to you by Movies On Demand On Cable, Blue Apron and go90.
