In an episode dedicated to writer, artist and filmmaker Frank Miller, the Panel discusses the recently released "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" trailer and "300: The Rise of Empire." Inevitably, discussing Miller means talking about Zack Snyder; luckily, that's a favorite Satellite Show pastime. In honor of Miller, this month's Yakmala film is "Will Eisner's The Spirit," but we also discuss the Yakmala concepts of "The Torgo" and "The Croker." We move to the Satellite Show sports desk, where Rob talks about his appearance on "Game of Arms."
