Paul Scheer returns this week to discuss the best worst movie of all time, “The Room.” He and Amy talk about the inscrutable details throughout the film, what it reveals about the gap between intention and fulfillment, and whether the characters represent facets of Tommy Wiseau’s unknowable brain. Plus, they discuss the true meaning behind the title and Paul shares his awe at working on a recreation of the set in “The Disaster Artist” before they dive into the questions “The Room” prompts about the nature of art. Should “The Room” enter The Canon? Cast your vote on the Earwolf forums now!
