Merry Christmas! Do we have a present for you!


Welp, we've found a lower bar somehow. This is almost Birdemic bad; certainly more damaging. Because we like this one and prefer to leave it up, we're not gonna say the name of the film in this description. Let's just say a 40 year old man in a fursuit who may or may not be Cool is heavily involved in neighborhood kids' lives. A little too heavily involved, if you ask us. ANYWAYS, it's an hour and ten minutes worth of jumbled PSA on bullying and guns (separately for the most part). We reason why this film down more harm than good. Enjoy!

Welcome! This episode was published in September, and it's Patreon window has expired! Therefore we now break it out of the vault to share with the world!


Today we are discussing a trend in YouTube critics that needs to die. Namely, groupthink and its effect on how we consume pop culture. Yeah, this is some heavy stuff. BUT we feel it needs to said. We take on our divorce from the likes of Nostalgia Critic, and also uplift those critics that we think deserve some attention. So join us!


Because this was recorded when we only had two patrons, we also extend our thanks to Sean, Nathan, and Bridgett! Thanks!

Hello and welcome!


In the loosely-related spirit of the release of Star Wars Episode VII, this week we hit on a classic favorite, the Laurence Kasdan penned and directed western Silverado! We look at this classic film's one-liners, great characters, fun action sequences, and overall what makes it not just a great Western, but a great movie!

This minisode is a tribute to one of our favorite shows, Bojack Horseman. Here's our case on just how important this show is and why it changes the face of animated television (or television in general). We hope you enjoy!

Welcome to the Future! Or rather the 80's version of it!


That's right, our surprise 50th episode is our favorite Trilogy of films, Back to the Future! In the wake of the October 21st, 2015 future already having come and gone, we take a good long look at what makes these films so timeless despite being rooted to a specific timeline. In doing so, we discover that its staying power is not exactly rocket science (or rather time travel science). Come join us as we celebrate the past, the past future, the future past (or rather, the present), and the real future! Thank you all for listening and joining in the discussion! Here's to another 50!


Want more BTTF? How about a whole podcast dedicated to it?

Up Next: Silverado!
December 1, 2015  

Hello and welcome!


This week we take on a request that we put off for a loooooong time, and boy do we pay the piper. We took a long hard look at the 2010 indie musical from the director of Mac and Me, Standing Ovation. Hear us trudge through the song-filled battlefield of plot threads that go nowhere, lame jokes, lame music, terrible adults, paper-thin characters, and lots of good old what-the-hell-ery. Come hear us give the film a-- what's the opposite of a Standing Ovation?
