Do Try This At Home

6 Underground (2019)

Season 2, Ep. 2

Rob Merriam joins us to rewrite a film that is morally corrupt at its very core, and yet we still manage to save cinema! We also get one set closer to answering the question 'what the heck is a Netflix Original movie'?


You can let us know what you think of the show, and ask us any questions, on Twitter and Instagram @dotrythispod.


You can check out Rob's thoughts on other movies on @forkrug on Letterboxd.


We exist as separate entities here:


Harrison is @hiyaharrison on Twitter and Instagram and Letterboxd.

Caleb is @caleblester on Twitter and Instagram and Letterboxd.


This is a Maybe You Like It Production.
