What is the definition of suspense? Will Lee and Eddie solve it before time runs out? Will Lee ever stop talking about glass blowing?

This episode, Lee is on the cutting edge of new and brilliant crime and mystery, with Joshilyn Jackson’s Never Have I Ever, and Eddie is back on their bullshit, reviewing World War I novels from the 90s.

5.4 | The Vegetarian, Quicksand, & The Semicolon

Alert.  A new episode has launched.  Lee & Eddie chat by a rainy window, which begs the question… should Crime Time rebrand as an ASMR youtube channel? 

Get ready for an action-packed episode full of true crime, sexy or scary, grammar tips, Netflix, and whole lotta books. 

Lee gives a terrible synopsis of the gripping Netflix series, Quicksand and then Eddie & Lee go toe-to-toe on Han Kang’s The Vegetarian.  Buckle up.

Hoo boy! Eddie has been waiting to watch the IT Part Two trailer just for you guys! Will IT live up to the hype? Will IT be too scary for Eddie to survive? Hard to say, you’d better tune in! And while you’re here we’ve got some great recommendations for your bookshelves! Lee’s keeping that contemporary feel coming with CJ Tudor’s amazing debut, The Chalk Man. Is it a biography of Eddie’s secret undercover life as Banksy? Probably not!

Meanwhile, Eddie wants to start a fight on the internet, because let’s face it, the internet? Wayyyyyy to civil and full of friendly discussion! That’s right, Eddie loves trash, and will do anything for that love–except diss Patricia Cornwell! It’s on!

Like, is a dog biography literature? Is Eddie stretching it a bit? Is Lee going to put up with Eddie’s nonsense? If Eddie suddenly and mysteriously goes missing, is Lee the one responsible?

Only joking folks! Eddie is one hundred percent fine and hasn’t been replaced by a more handsome and slightly cleverer body double called Jed! That would be crazy! Why would you think that was a thing that happened? Ha ha! Oh, you guys! Anyway, here’s Wonderwall.
