S4E01 - Mouse Hunt
What's that? A new episode (and new SEASON) of LMIY in your podcast feeds? Believe it! After an extended hiatus, the gang is back to catch up on what has happened over the past 9 months, both in life and what media we've enjoyed. We then launch into our new theme "Movies for Vanna" (in celebration of Katie's new bundle of joy) with her family favorite, 1997's Mouse Hunt! Katie gives us a rundown of why this was a VHS staple in her family's life and Ashley and Graham delight in the pratfalls that befall Nathan Lane and Lee Evans as they battle a cute mouse.

S3E15 - Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?
It's our SEASON FINALE EPISODE...and we're bringing you, our dear listeners, two very special offerings -- 1) a 1996 film that NONE of us had ever seen, starring our podcast's patron saint, Ms. Tori Spelling, and 2) The Second Annual LMIY Awards! So please join us for this made for TV movie that really is just the epitome of fun trash. Tori Spelling plays the titular character Laurel -- a senior in college, star of her track team, a real whiz in the classroom -- as she falls in love with sexy stranger Kevin. But when Kevin's revealed to be the killer from the opening salvo of this "film", our dear Tori is in for a wild ride of relationship abuse, stalking, and all sorts of dangerous insanity. How many people are killed in this movie? What does this film and Friday the 13th have in common? WILL TORI SLEEP WITH DANGER? You'll just have to listen and find out! Then, we host our second annual LMIY Awards, going through our entire 15-episodes of season 3 to choose Best Supporting Actor and Actress, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Director, Best Actor and Actress, Best Picture, and, of course, bestow our honorary Tori Spelling Award for the year. There are definitely some surprises and upsets in this awards season, not the least of all when Graham insists on granting himself an award as well :) (all the podcasters got awards, don't worry). So make sure you have AAA and get ready to run REALLY awkwardly for this RIDICULOUS movie! Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S3E14 - Grease 2
How do you follow up one of the most successful musicals in modern memory? How about you cast relative unknowns in lead roles and get them started with a 1/2 finished script that makes ZERO sense, and only just barely connects to its source material? YES, THIS MOVIE IS GOD AWFUL...but it has earned its cult status over the past almost forty years...so join us as Ashley introduces Katie to a beloved childhood favorite, and the final entry in our SEQUEL SENSATION theme -- 1982's Grease 2. Starring Michelle Pfeiffer in her first leading role, this film picks up two years after Olivia Newton John and John Travolta hand jived their way through Rydell High -- focusing on our NEW CLASS of Pink Ladies and T-Birds. Michelle plays Stephanie, the leader of the Pink Ladies who is just so OVER dating T-Birds and is looking for a new man...a "cool rider". Enter new kid in town, Michael Carrington (played by Maxwell Caulfield, aka REX MANNING) -- Australian Sandy's cousin from the original film, although he is inexplicably British. He sets his sights on winning Stephanie's heart by learning everything there is to learn about motorcyclin' - and takes on a secret persona as said "cool rider". This film then gets nuts with wacky songs (hello, even if you hate this film, the song "Reproduction" is a must) insane dance numbers, and an almost 2 hour runtime. We also discuss how this film affected Ashley's entire fashion aesthetic all throughout her life, the gang's favorite musicals, a new mini-Let Me Introduce You, and a preview of our SEASON FINALE in 2 weeks. So put on your motorcycle hat and enjoy one of our more divisive episodes - 'cuz come on, we've got a rep to protect! Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S3E13 - Beneath the Planet of the Apes
In one of the countless billions of galaxies in the universe, lies a medium-sized start, and one of its satellites, a green and insignificant planet, is now dead. We, your dear podcasters, are delighted to swerve HARD from last episode's heartwarming story with a film about political ruin, dystopian society, nuclear fear, religious zealotry...and sexy shirtless men with an obvious Katie pick for our SEQUEL SENSATION theme -- 1970's Beneath the Planet of the Apes! An army of civilized apes...a fortress of radiation-crazed super humans...Earth's final battle is about to begin--beneath the atomic rubble of what was once the city of New York. So listen in as we subjugate Ashley and Graham to his over 50 year film (they both paid attention-ish) and talk about how this sequel got made into one of the world's most well-known franchises (when franchises were barely a thing) -- despite a near bankruptcy and literally everything going wrong from the start. We also chat about New Wave Science fiction, this film's SUB-PAR make up effects, the absolute sexiness of lead actor James Franciscus (aka the Caffeine-free, diet Coke version of Charlton Heston) and how you follow up the intensely mind-blowing ending of the first film (and then, how do you make a third movie?!). We also have TWO mini-Let Me Introduce Yous and discuss what intelligent animals we would want ruling the planet in the future. Join us as we reveal our innermost selves to you! Hosted on Acast.

S3E12 - Paddington 2
Hey, there. The world has been a lot lately. But if we're kind and polite, the world will be right. So why don't you make a cuppa, grab yourself a marmalade sandwich, and join us not only for an unBEARably delightful film, but the launch of our new theme -- SEQUEL SENSATIONS! Graham has been singing the virtues of this film for at least five episodes now, so it's finally time for him to introduce Katie and Ashley to the charmingly disarming Paddington 2. Starring a venerable who's who of Brittan's finest actors, including Hugh Grant (who you obv know), Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter's Dolores Umbridge), Julie Walters (Harry Potter's Mrs. Weasley), Ben Whishaw (James Bond's Q), Jim Broadbent< Jessica Hynes, Brendan Gleason AND SO MANY MORE...this is truly a children's film filled with joy, prestige, beauty and challenge. Not often do all 3 of your podcasters agree on a film, but all three completely fell in love with every aspect of this treasure. We also discuss children's films in today's society, other sequels who surpased their originals in popularity, and a special Mini Let Me Introduce You from this week's host (who we must say has never had any complaints about his Mr and Mrs Botty-Cheek).

S3E11 - Labyrinth (with Kyle McDaniel)
We're ending our EXCUSE ME, WHAT?! Series of films we JUST CAN'T FRIGGING BELIEVE the others haven't seen with a big one...a GIANT WHIFFED MISS in Katie's film education, 1986's Labyrinth. This film is a seminal work in the canon of Jim Henson, and showcases some of the amazing things that puppetry can do on film...from something as tiny as a wee little worm who offers you tea with the missus, to a swamp filled with buttholes, or even a collection of weird bird fire things who switch arms and legs and heads (while singing). And who better to introduce us to this film (other than Graham, well-known Henson lover) but our special guest -- actor, story animator, former Pixar employee and theater kid to the bone (and obv. friend of the pod) Mr. Kyle McDaniel! Kyle lures your favorite podcasters in with tales of the Goblin King aka David Bowie, reading hidden clues around set design and dress, the beauty of Jennifer Connelly, and why his favorite character in all of this fantasy madness is Hoggle. In a film that bases its story on how much something means to you once its gone, we willingly get lost in the joyful maze that is Labyrinth. So join us in the oubliette (we haven't been able to get out) and get ready for DANCE MAGIC, DANCE! Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S3E10 - An Affair to Remember
It's not often we visit the 1950s, but for Ashley's pick in our judgement-free theme (we promise), EXCUSE ME, WHAT?! -- films we cannot believe the others have seen -- we take a romantic trip on an Italian cruise, right into the hearts of Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr in 1957's An Affair to Remember. Our two main characters fall in love (OBV) on a cruise ship while involved with other people, so they give themselves six months to sort their lives out and promise to meet on the closest thing to heaven, the Empire State Building. But then a HORRIBLE ACCIDENT...and not to get emotional, but Graham was OVERWHELMED with joy for this movie. Katie...well, you'll just have to listen to find out. Your three favorite podcasters also discuss the fashion, the inspired improvisational style of acting in this film, and another Mini-Let Me Introduce You. And in the truest nature of this affair...DON'T FORGET TO SUBSCRIBE. Winter is cold for those with no warm memories, so cuddle up with this delightful tryst. Hosted on Acast.

S3E9 - Amadeus
We, your beloved podcasters, pride ourselves on our film knowledge and expertise. However, there are some movies that have simply escaped our cultural lexicon...some of them are even BEST PICTURE WINNERS. I bet you'd say "Excuse me, WHAT?! YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THIS?!" Well, you wouldn't be the only one...so we proudly present our second entry into the MOVIES WE CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN with our first Best Picture Winner, 1984's Amadeus. Katie and Graham ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS MOVIE...and while we can't find the Theatrical Release anywhere online, we dive into the almost 3-hour directors cut and are BEYOND SURPRISED that Ashley made it through in once piece as her first viewing! We also chat a bit about our time playing instruments growing up, and a very special mini-MINI Let Me Introduce You. Well...there it is. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S3E8 - Working Girl
We're welcoming the new year with shame!! Enter our newest theme, Excuse me, WHAT?! Films we just CAN'T BELIEVE you haven't seen. And we're starting with one of our WHITE WHALES, the 1988 classic romantic BUSINESS WOMAN COMEDY, Working Girl. This is the one movie that started the whole podcast idea, and a film Graham holds so dear to his heart that he was terrified of showing it to Ashley and Katie. Starring the gorgeous Melanie Griffith, the delicious Harrison Ford, a pitch-perfect-bitch Sigourney Weaver, and the ethereal Joan Cusack, this film follows Staten Islander Tess McGill as works her way through lethal, 1980s Wall Street...aiming to be more than "just a secretary." When her seemingly supportive boss breaks her leg on a ski trip, Tess discovers her superior was aiming to undercut her talent and steal her idea for a deal. So Tes cons her way into a meeting with the lovely Jack Trainer to make an even lovelier partnership, both on and off the trading floor. Directed by Mike Nichols, this was truly enjoyable for everyone...so while your favorite podcasters might not be steak, you CAN order this podcast right into your ears! We also talk a bit about our favorite new media over the holiday break and have some excellent recs. Just let us know if we can get you anything...coffee, tea, me? Hosted on Acast.

Join Graham and Ashley as they introduce Katie to the SHEER WONDER that is Hallmark, starting with Never Kiss a Man in a Christmas Sweater -- a new film for the 2020 Hallmark slate.

S3E7 - Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (with Justin Krohn)
The podcast which you are about to listen to is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of three best friends, in particular Ashely Krohn and her older brother, (and our special guest) Justin. It is all the more tragic in that they were young(ish). But, had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected nor would they have wished to view as much of the mad and macabre as they were to watch on film that day. For them an idyllic winter movie double-feature became a nightmare. The events of that viewing were to lead to the discovery of two of the most bizarre due of films in the annals of American history. For our final installment in our SIBLINGS theme, we are honored to welcome film and television editor, Ashley's brother Justin to the pod, as he introduces Graham and Katie to 1974's Texas Chainsaw Massacre and it's abysmal sequel, 1986's Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Starting with the horror film that gives a new meaning to the word "disturbing", the original classic introduced audiences to slasher icon Leatherface as we do a deep dive into the wonderful world of the horror genre. Then we take a HARD LEFT to discuss the camp, 80s coke-fueled insanity that is the Dennis Hopper-lead sequel where Leatherface makes his return, along with the rest of his revolting family. We chat a bit about what a film/tv editor does, some of Justin's past credits, and what it was like in the Krohn household when Ashley was FORCED to view one of the most beautiful pieces of cinema as a mere preteen (note: it was not either of these two movies). So rev up the chainsaw, try not to eat any chili beforehand, and pull up a seat at our dinner table for our last episode of 2022! Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S3E6 - Teen Witch (with Stephanie Burgin)
Ever wonder why Graham is the way he is (aka utterly perfect?) Well, your favorite podcasters invite his older sister Stephanie on to our show to talk about the very movie that shaped them as kids (them, and most likely no one else, based on the box office) -- as the two Veths introduce Katie and Ashley to the WONDER that is 1989's Teen Witch. Drama, romance, comedy, musical, fantasy...this movie has it all! Starring Robin Lively as high school "nerd" Louise who, upon her 16th birthday, develops special witch powers! And who better to welcome her into her coven than pint-sized powerhouse, Zelda Rubenstein -- an ersatz fairy godmother if there ever was one. Will Louise cast a spell to make her (and Graham's) crush Brad (played by Dan Gauthier) fall in lovewith her? Or perhaps take on the essence of a pop star to become the most popular girl in school? Or maybe she just turns her little brother (brought to magical life by Joshua John Miller) into a dog. Who knows what's possible in this mishmash of razzle dazzle! We also dive into some of the Veth family childhood favorites, as well as Stephanie's 9 year old daughter's very insightful opinions on her mom and uncle's film tastes. Could this movie be any more supersonic, idiotic, disconnecting, not respecting? Who would really ever wanna go and TOP THAT? Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S3E5 - Tombstone (with Zak Kubert)
There are those in our lives who know us through thick and thin...who get our dumb senses of humor (because hey, they have the exact same ones) and laugh at the same ridiculous things you did when you were 10 years old. They grew up on the same crap, watched the same movies (whether they wanted to or not) and have the same pop culture blind spots...they're OUR SIBLINGS! So to kick off a theme very close to our hearts, we're starting with Katie's brother Zak, and introducing a seminal work of the 1990s -- a movie that stayed true to their parents ignoring film ratings, a real Huckelberry, 1993's Tombstone. With an all-star cast (hello Kurt Russell, Bill PAXTON (not Pullman!!), Sam Elliott, and of course, the incredible Val Kilmer) this post-Unforgiven western was a STAPLE (Stable? get it? it's a horse joke.) in the Kubert household. So if you, dear listener, were ever interested in why Katie gravitates towards the movies she does, get the inside scoop from the man who was there at the beginning, and has the same weird sense of film taste that she does (more action! more violence!). So pop those headphones on and join us for some gun-slingin' fun...you're a daisy if you do! Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S3E4 - Candyman (1992) (with Jeremy Selenfriend)
It's the spooky season, and for you, dear listeners...this is no TRICK, we have a TREAT just for you...after two full seasons where Katie vamped about practical Special Effects for film and television, we thought we'd bring in a PRO to introduce your favorite podcasters to the ins and outs of prosthetic make up, mold making, casting, and the art behind making things creepy...so we're honored and humbled to have SFX artist Jeremy Selenfriend, owner of Monster In My Closet SFX shop, on the show to introduce us to a film that scared HIM as a kid...the 1992 Clive Barker classic, Candyman. Jeremy is known for his Emmy-nominated work on Boardwalk Empire, and has also worked on a million other well-known projects like The Blacklist, Men in Black III, Gotham, Elementary, Royal Pains, Orange is the New Black, Amazing Spider-Man 2, Daredevil, The Punisher, Jessica Jones, The King of Staten Island and so many more. So won't you JOIN US as he takes the gang into the modern oral folklore of The Candyman on the Near North Side of Chicago...inside a dilapidated housing project known as Cabrini-Green, where a man with a hook for a hand and a chest of bees waits. Starring the incredible Tony Todd (you remember him from our Night of the Living Dead remake episode) and Virginia Madsen (of Sideways fame), this film really breaks down modern day horrors in ways none of us were expecting...especially for a film that's almost 30 years old. We also give some great horror film recs for the Halloween season, and do a primer on SFX in today's film and television industry. So won't you BE(E) OUR VICTIM? Just press play, stare into the mirror, and say it 5 times...Candyman, Candyman, Candyman, Candyman...... Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S3E3 - Nine Months
Ah...the summer of 1995. When Hugh Grant's hair was still floppy, the world was mere moments away from making Divine Brown a household name, Tom Arnold was still considered funny enough to be cast in something, and a wee BU School of Performing Arts '83 graduate was starring in her first Hollywood romantic comedy, the subject of our final BU ALUMS theme, Nine Months. Highlighting the sheer beauty of a very 90s (and oddly homosexual-free) San Francisco, this film follows couple Samuel and Rebecca as they find out they are unexpectedly going to be parents. Samuel, brought to life by the over-the-top performance of Hugh Grant, is a commitment-phobic, selfish child psychologist with a Peter Pan-complex who, ironically, hates kids, and obviously cannot provide his girlfriend Rebecca, played by goddess Julianne Moore, the support she needs as a soon-to-be mother. She finds this support and friendship with new friends Marty and Gail Dwyer (played by an unbearable Tom Arnold and an as-always delightful Joan Cusack), while Samuel seeks advice and comfort from fellow playboy and friend, Sean Fletcher (a role Jeff Goldblum excels at). We've got SOME THOUGHTS on this movie, and while it might be a glorious example of redhead representation (which our podcaster Ashley is always in great support of) it's...not really great anywhere else. OH, did we mention Robin Williams is also in this film? Who needs an enema? No, uh, a pedicure? No wait, an epitaph? IT'S EPIDURAL, ASSHOLE, FOR OUR LAST FILM FROM BU ALUMS! Hosted on Acast.

S3E2 - The Long Kiss Goodnight
Graham continues our theme of FILMS FROM BU ALUMS with a CFA '79 Graduate KNOWN for her action roles...or rather...just the one. Geena Davis, a woman for the people, tried her best to advance female action stars with her role as Samantha Caine in 1996's action/crime/spy Thriller, The Long Kiss Goodnight. Written by action industry stalwart Shane Black (a script purchased for a record breaking $4 mil), the story opens with an idyllic suburban mother and teacher, Samantha -- a woman who woke up on a New Jersey beach 8 years ago with no memory and pregnant with her daughter, Caitlin. After a very lovely and Hallmark-worthy Christmas party, Samantha is injured in a car crash -- a crash which stirs up memories of her past, and memories of a blonde, badass smoker named Charly, Samantha's alter-identity. Meanwhile, an incomparable and charming Samuel L. Jackson plays private detective Mich Hennessy, a man Samantha hired to uncover her past, and a man who winds up getting the crap kicked out of him mercilessly this entire film. Mitch and Sam team up with Charly's old boss (played by Brian Cox) to uncover a secret plot between the CIA and an organization known as Deadalus -- former villains Charley was investigating before her self-induced amnesia, led by dreamy Craig Bierko (another BU attende!). So join your favorite BU alum podcasters here as we discuss Queen Geena's valiant attempt to forward women in the action genre, and how we think that whatever Samantha's memory is attempting to dislodge, much like Brian Cox's dog who has been licking its asshole for the past hour), is either gone for good, or there to stay.

S3E1 - Mommie Dearest
WE'RE BAAAAAACK! For our season 3 opener, we thought we'd go back to our roots...your three favorite podcasters, as wee babes, were once film and television students at Boston University. And what better way to celebrate that legacy than highlighting movies from BU Alums?! And what better alum to start with than Katie's favorite 1962 CFA graduate, Faye Dunaway? And what better film to highlight than the one that arguably killed her career, 1981's Mommie Dearest?! A bitter, harrowing look into the COMPLETE INSANITY that was SCREEN QUEEN Joan Crawford's life from 1939-1977, written from the point of view of her first adopted daughter, Christina Crawford. Based on the best-selling book of the same title, watch as Joan overcomes the insane amount of obstacles thrown at her on a daily basis: Children who just REFUSE to give all their toys away on their birthdays, who make ungodly messes, who won't help chop down rose bushes in the middle of the night, who won't eat rare steak when it's been left out for days, who have the AUDACITY to be anything more than FANS, boyfriends and husbands who have NEEDS, studios who won't give Joan her due respect...all this, and (say it with us) NO. WIRE. HANGERS. EVER! Welcome, dear listeners, to season 3 of Let Me Introduce You...this ain't our first time at the rodeo... Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

S2E15 - Waterworld
Water. It is essential for life. But it is also essential for CINEMATIC CHAOS in the Kevin Costner H20 vehicle, the 1995 KING OF ALL FLOPS, Waterworld. Ashley introduces your favorite podcasters to the mother of all aquatic calamities...starring the world's most notorious gill-ed mut-o, Kevin Costner as The Mariner. A man who is truly an island, he sails the oceans of Earth -- a planet long since submerged when its polar ice caps melted -- in search of...more isolation. Until he meets a woman (Jeanne Tripplehorn...hello, The Firm or Basic Instinct) and her ward (Napoleon Dynamite's own Tina Majorino), the latter of which has a tattoo on her back rumored to be the map to DRY LAND. In hot pursuit (and we mean that in the literal sense) and fueled by cigarettes (also in the literal sense) is the film's savior...or rather, lead villain, Dennis Hopper (listen, if you don't know who Dennis Hopper is that's your problem) who runs his team of Smokers with three goals in mind...get the child, find dry land, and pillage!! This film is too much and not enough all at once, and with only ONE MONSTER in the entire movie, Katie, Graham and Ashley are left...well, quite dry. Join us for the final episode in our IT'S A DISASTER theme, as well as our season ender, where we host the first LET ME INTRODUCE YOU AWARDS! We're bringing down the house (and literally everything else, because duh, it's all under water) with this one...so come hear us talk about coffee enemas, because NOTHING IS FREE IN WATERWORLD.

S2E14 - Hudson Hawk
OK, so you're a film executive in 1991 trying to make a blockbuster hit. You have your bankable action star (Bruce Willis in the title role), your beautiful global locations (Rome! New York! Budapest!), your dastardly villain duo (Richard E. Grant and Sandra Bernhard), wild sets and massive explosions. But then you keep adding...music that makes no sense, actors who just dont...act (or do the opposite and OVERact), slapstick "jokes", weird sound effects, a conspiracy theory plot with so many twists and turns and double crosses it stops making sense, the FBI, the CIA, the Vatican (please, why are you still adding things), a love affair with a nun, AN ART HEIST, LEONARDO DAVINCI, AND A PLAN TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD BY INSTILLING FINANCIAL CHAOS? Seriously, how much do you think that would cost? Spoiler: a lot. Do you think it would be a successful film? Spoiler: Nope. Join your favorite podcasters as we dive into the Bruce Willis (ego)driven film Hudson Hawk, the third installment of our IT'S A DISASTER! Theme. We also cast ourselves as pivotal MTV-IA subversive, candybar-themed secret agents and talk a lot about Girl Scout cookies. It's either this, or hey, you could be swingin' on a star...

Meow meow meow, meow, meow...meow? Meow, meow! (I should really just write the whole summary that way)...but no really, folks, we're mewling about one of the biggest box office CAT-astrophes in recent MEMORY for the second episode in our IT'S A DISASTER! theme...have you guessed what it is yet? Rebel Wilson eating a bunch of human Rockette-esque cockroaches and then unzipping her own cat skin? James Corden rolling around in garbage while wearing spats? Idris Elba performing magic tricks and sending anyone who gets in his way to a barge? Taylor Swift drugging everyone? Nonsense words and names and songs with no rhyme (literally) or reason? Some of the worst digital SFX in history? DO THESE SOUND LIKE NORMAL THINGS? Well, they are at least viewed that way in the 2019 musical, Cats. Join Graham as he introduces this CAT-aclysmic failure to the gang, espouses on his love of Skimbleshanks, the Railway Cat, and makes Katie and Ashley come up with their own Jellicle Cat names.
