On a Very Special show this week, we take a moment out of our hiatus to call upon our listeners for help. Patrick has been renting a home for 5 years, and now that house is being sold. He & his family are looking at potential homelessness by the end of July unless something comes their way.

We're asking if anyone out there knows of someone in the Houston/Spring Texas area that has property being rented, please get in touch....

Since we're on hiatus for a while, we'll be reposting some of our older shows!

 

What do Jeff Goldblum, Brent Spiner and Judd Hirsch have in common? A rampant hatred for alien invaders. That’s right, kids. It’s the ‘Independence Day’ episode! This week, we’re suiting up in our flight gear and flying our jets right up that alien motherships tail pipe. It’s time to punch those giant, green laser shooting aliens right in th...

This week we delve down into the psyche of one of the most unstable persons around, a #FatheroftheBride. Yes, the one person who is both the keystone on which an event occurs (or at least his credit card is) and the "leaf on the wind" which blows wherever the wants and needs of the bride take him. Yes, we're watching the 1991 #SteveMartin version up against the 2022 HBO #AndyGarcia remake of a remake. Along with this yo...

Based on this, we have determined that it's time to record our show that features discussion of the classic Mike Judge film #OfficeSpace and the #AppleTV+ show #Severance.   Do they really compare? Did Ben Stiller really direct the episodes? How many pieces of flare are truly required? All of these secrets will be reveal...

Mike, Pat, Joel and Josh are the kindest, warmest, bravest, most wonderful human beings you've ever known in my life.... or so #AngelaLansbury has taught us to believe. (#MerylStreep too!) This week, we're enjoying ladies guild's hydrangea arrangement presentation or is it 'The Manchurian Candidate'? The details are unclear, but #DenzelWashington and Frank #Sinatra will help sort it all out. Put away the playing...

It's a tale as old as time. Aliens come to our planet. Humans try to befriend them. Aliens shoot the humans. War begins. This week, we're boarding the storybook train for H.G. Wells classic story 'War of the Worlds'. Mike, Pat, Joel and Josh are discussing the finer points of the 1953 Byron Haskin film adaptation vs the 2005 #TomCruise and #StevenSpielberg update. While not as much dogfighting as in #TopGun, there ...

The late 80's and early 90's is a huge nostalgia period for a lot of folks these days, especially regarding their Disney cartoons. One of the cornerstone shows is 'Chip 'n Dale: #RescueRangers'!   Get ready to solve some mysteries with #ChipNDale, Zipper, #Gadget and good ol' Monterey Jack. All of the goofiness, good times and close shaves, we're doing a deep dive all the way into #Russian Gadget Hac...

What do Sid Caesar and The Kids in the Hall have in common? Why were these comedy heroes resurrected by a guy in a towel? When did Shakespeare become so bloody funny?   You're going to have to tune in to this very Canadian #KITH episode of '40 Going On 14' to find out! We all have our comedy heroes. Even our heroes have heroes. For a lot of comedians out there, these guys are their heroes. (That word has no meaning now...

If you're not familiar with Lucille Ball, you may have been living under a rock for the past 70+ years. For this very special episode, we're revisiting the classic TV sitcom 'I Love Lucy'. We're also fast forwarding to the recent Amazon Prime biopic from Aaron Sorkin called 'Being the Ricardos'.   All four of us grew up with wacky antics of Lucy, Desi, Fred and Ethel. We laughed, we cried and we all ...

What's the magic behind a good TV theme song? It can make or break a show and is your first impression of what's to come. It can also cross over and become a Billboard hit song, unless you're the theme from 'Star Trek: Enterprise', but that's another story. On this memory show, we're digging into the finer points of the show intro. Which one is our favorite? Which one makes us rage quit the series? Well,...

The worst movie of all time? I beg to differ, (At least Joel does.) but that is the nomenclature it has been saddled with. (Yes, we're reviewing "Plan 9 From Outer Space" this week, that 1957 Ed Wood sci-fi film that set the bar at a certain height.) Despite this, there was a remake in 2015 by the soon to be labeled genius, John Johnson (Don't hold your breath on this one.). There will be blood in this episode, as o...

No, this show isn't all about us. Although, we are all jackasses in our own right. We're actually talking about Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Bam and the rest of the gang as we chronicle their history of super stunts, super gross outs and super hilarious moments, it's the #Jackass show.   The boys of Jackass were viral video pioneers, when the internet was still in its infancy. They set the standard for what turned into lo...

The mustache is back! Not Tom Selleck or Doug Henning, but rather Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot. The man, the myth, the legendary mystery solver!

There's no one quite like Agatha Christie's master detect...

Hey kids! Do you want to watch a #Disney movie about #puppies? Let's watch this one about 101 Dalmatians! Wait, what does #CruellaDeVil want to do with them? Oh no! Yup.

We tend to break out into song, a lot. However, we're not much on dancing. If these movies have taught us anything, it's that in the 1950's, both things happened a LOT. Especially in the midst of gang violence and tragic love stories. In 1961, Robert Wise, Rita Moreno and Natalie Wood gave us the original West Side Story, an adaptation of this Broadway production. In 2021, Steven Spielberg and Rita Moreno are giving us ...

All four of us are geeks, but not in the traditional sense. Although we do love to eat chicken.  On this first episode of our #Oscars2021 month, we're talking about the original 1947 '#Nightmare Alley' starring Tyrone Power and comparing it to the brand new re-telling by Guillermo del Toro!

This film has everything from noir, to freakshows, to murder, mayhem and mysticism! Grab yourself a bucket of chicken, your Brad...

We've always been nerds. However, there used to be a time when that wasn't cool. Back then, we had a neat little cartoon, that somehow incited a riot. Now days, we have a new cartoon, that might just do the same.   We are taking a trip into the world of Dungeon's and Dragons. From its roots in the 1983 original animated series and in the brand new 2021 'Legend of Vox Machina'. If you thought they wouldn't be...

Rob from the rich and give to the poor, they said. It'll be fun, they said. Little did they know, he had a spoon. Why? Because it will hurt more!   That's right, we're submitting ourselves to the majesty of Kevin Costner in this all-out battle royale vs Taron Egerton. This week, 40 Going On 14 is heading to Sherwood Forest to hang out with the Robin Hoods.   Grab your Little John and buckle up, this might get a little e...
