Episode 137- OVERLOOKED SCIENCE FICTION TV

overlooked

This week on the show, we chit-chat about last Sunday’s Oscars before getting into the topic at hand: Overlooked Science Fiction TV. We each selected a sci-fi series from the ’90s that we feel has been somehow overlooked in the larger pop-culture spectrum: Earth 2, Kurt Vonnegut’s Monkey House, and The Visitor. Do these shows hold-up now, or should we have left them be in the wasteland of television obscurity? To find out, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes!

The Winter Olympics are in their final stretch, and since we know nothing about sports, we’ve decided to join in the fun/humanitarian horrors of the Sochi games by watching 1993’s Cool Runnings. John Candy, Doug E. Doug, slow claps, evil Germans, and an extremely loose interpretation on what “Based on a True Story” means– what could go wrong? To find out, download the link below, or better yet, subscribe on iTunes!

We’re back! It’s 2014 now, so we’re boldly looking into the future by discussing a movie that was made fifteen years ago: Galaxy Quest!

Wondeful

Our month of Christmas-themed episodes continues with a discussion of Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s a perennial holiday favorite, but is it rewatchable? Is George Bailey kind of just a big jerk? Who would win in a fight between Mary and alternate-universe Mary? Is it just us, or does Pottersville look way more fun than Bedford Falls?

Episode 124- DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE

DHWAV

With Christmas just around the corner, and a past history of discussing Die Hard movies during the holidays, late November seems like a good time to talk about the decidedly non-Christmas-centric Die Hard With a Vengeance. We loved it when we were kids, but how does it hold up now sandwiched between the two original Die Hard films, and ones that feature Kevin Smith and Russia?

Episode 121- LABYRINTH

Labyrinth

This week on the show, we talk about the beloved children’s film in which on old androgynous pop star kidnaps a baby in an effort to lure a teenage girl to his castle… come to think of it, it doesn’t sound so wholesome. Oh wait, there are puppets. So it’s okay, I guess… Of course, we’re talking about Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. We loved it as kids– except for Rob who had never seen it before– but how does it fare today?

We round out our month of listener requests with a Halloween-themed discussion of A Nightmare on Elm Street, the blockbuster 1984 horror flick that introduced the world to Freddy Krueger, Johnny Depp, and a bunch of people no one cares about anymore. It was a phenomenon back in the ’80s, spawning a myriad of sequels, toys, video games, and even a Freddy Krueger album– but how does it play now?

Episode 119- EERIE, INDIANA

If you crossed Encyclopedia Brown with The Night Stalker and introduced that combination to David Lynch, you’d probably end up with Eerie, Indiana, the 1991 kids’ TV program that was sadly cancelled after one season, but went on to accrue a substantial cult following over the years. Eerie, Indiana is the topic this week on our penultimate listener-selected October episode. We had mixed feelings about the show when we were kids, but how does it strike us now?

Episode 118- CLUE

Listener request month continues with Jonathan Lynn’s 1985 classic Clue— the best movie ever based on a board game… except for maybe Trivial Pursuit: Book of Shadows, or Wall Street (which was based on Monopoly, I assume).  We chat about the film’s cult status, and speak to Adam B. Vary who interviewed Lynn, John Landis and most of the film’s stars for an expansive Buzzfeed article about Clue that you can find right here.

October is listener’s choice month– every episode this month will be taken from the wonderful suggestions we received over e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter. First up is Pee Wee’s Big Adventure , the 1985 comedy starring Paul Reubens, a bunch of wacky characters, and directed by a young pre-ruined Tim Burton.
