THE A.V. CLUB HOSTED BY JOHN TETI | “Endless Summer” Airs Thursday, June 1 @ 9PM on FUSION TV -- Sometimes it feels like summer movie season lasts all year. Movies typically relegated to the warmer months come out all year long now, so it's easy to feel like you're part of an "Endless Summer." This week, The A.V. Club sought out to investigate that phenomenon. To stave off blockbuster fatigue, we’ve selected a few indie films that pair well as “palate cleansers” for some of this summer’s tentpole releases, and finally when the eventual snack craving hits, we whip up some theater concessions inspired recipes. Special Guests: Lucia Aniello & Paul W. Downs
