Episode 30- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It’s the 30th episode of Rewatchability, and to celebrate we have a super-sized episode dedicated to one of our favourite topics: the seminal popular culture phenomenon that is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We re-watched the first three movies, and also managed to discuss the cartoon series, the Nintendo games, the breakfast cereal, and the Ninja Turtles’ unfortunate 1990 Live Tour. We’re joined by guests Matt Johnson (who you might recognize from Nirvana the Band) and Curtis Lobb who’s currently working on a TMNT documentary. In this episode we address some important issues: Was Casey Jones homeless? Where were Corey Feldman and Elias Koteas during Secret of the Ooze? What will Michael Bay’s reboot of the franchise look like?* Which rap is better, Ninja Rap or TURTLE Power? You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out!

* UPDATE: Since recording this podcast, Michael Bay has announced that the Ninja Turtles in his new film won’t be Mutants but rather Aliens… yeah. I wonder what the guy who voiced Michaelangelo in the movies thought of that.

Episode 5- The Wizard

Remember when Fred Savage was like a God? Well maybe not a God, more like a little boy. But he sure gave those Culkins a run for their money (as did their parents). When he wasn’t being read bedtime stories by Peter Falk or staring into space while Daniel Stern monologued, Fred was starring in films like 1989’s The Wizard. A childhood favorite in its time, but how does it hold up? It’s basically a two-hour advertisement for Nintendo– but what an advertisement! It also stars future Rilo Kiley star Jenny Lewis, and future Christian Slater Christian Slater.

In this episode we’re joined by a special guest– is it Fred Savage? Jenny Lewis? Or is it merely the pizza we ordered arriving unceremoniously early? You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out!
