Episode Twenty Three: The Pavement was his Enemy

66 minutes | Oct 24, 2013
Episode Twenty Two: Escape to Victory
We take on prison break films this week: everything from a film celebrating a Christ-like figure refusing to buckle under the system (COOL HAND LUKE) to a film celebrating a Christ-like figure refusing to buckle under the system (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION). The merits of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES films are also debated.

Episode Twenty One: Return of the Walking (un)Dead
We decide to have a chat about THE WALKING DEAD now that it's back on the air. Mostly we're trying to figure out... why is it so popular? And why are Bob and Gus still watching it? Also in this episode: we jinx Trey Parker and Matt Stone, John tries (and mostly fails) to explain why he likes Spelunky and Bob discusses some of forty seven films he watched over the weekend.
47 minutes | Oct 10, 2013
Episode Twenty: Gus' Homework
We sit down to discuss the movies that we need to see but haven't, including Psycho, The French Connection, and The Big Lebowski (it really ties the room together). Bob mixes American Football with Thelonious Monk; John watches Agents of Shield; Gus worries about SNL.
56 minutes | Oct 3, 2013
Episode Nineteen: Apollo Creed and other antagonists
We lay out some of our Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. anxiety and Bob proposes the best possible Commissioner Gordon spin-off idea before we get down to talking about Apollo Creed and other “bad guys” that have won our hearts (or entertained us, at least).
60 minutes | Sep 26, 2013
Episode Eighteen: Development... IN HELL!
We talk about the Emmys and GTA V before moving on to our favourite “development hell” projects. John and Bob dream of Halo while Gus holds strong to the classics. You know, dinosaurs and ghosts.
67 minutes | Sep 20, 2013
Episode Seventeen: TV Land
We talk all kinds of television topics this week, from House of Cards to Ironside with some SNL in between. Numerous topics for possible future podcast episodes that may or may not ever happen are also discussed. Also, if you like hearing an Irishman and an American describe Key & Peele sketches in detail for no apparent reason, we’ve got you covered.
69 minutes | Sep 12, 2013
Episode Sixteen: Summer Blockbustermegasuperthon I
We look back at some of the films of the summer, but not before commenting on Eddie Murphy’s return to the recording studio. How could we not? We also briefly have a Star Trek nerd-off (Gus wins) and Bob reveals a dark, dark secret.
56 minutes | Sep 7, 2013
Episode Fifteen: The Stolen Anecdote
We relax this week and chat about The West Wing, The Warriors and The Expendables 2. Listen to the end for Bob's brush with greatness.
66 minutes | Aug 29, 2013
Episode Fourteen: Longhorns in the BCS and the End of the World
We renege on our promise to keep the (American) football separate this week and just talk about the Texas Longhorns with rampant and blind optimism. Before that though, we chat about THE WORLD'S END and the reaction to Ben Affleck as Batman.
