This episode got pretty drunk.  Mike started that way, but Joe and Sean catch up before the end.  Walks down memory lane, who has the worst organs, and how both LifeAlert and LifeLock work/worked.

The show starts with another Jurassic Park discussion, which we caught before the show even really started.  It’s off the rails after that with ghosts, picking a person to finger your butt for health, and what is moons?

Which came first, the elevator or the skyscraper?  Did George Washington Carver invent them?  So many questions this week, not the least of which is "When the hell is Joe going to see Jaws?"

The UFO report is here: Aliens, humans, or humans… from the future? The best of the cereal mascots duke it out in a battle for supremacy. And what is the deal with Humpty Dumpty? What a fancy eggman.

The grisly reality of Spider-Men(Persons); Harrison Ford and Danny DeVito are pretty spry for their age; the obsession with murder porn in the zeitgeist; and a wild but somehow true (because Florida) tale of baby tossing.

We don’t exactly hate the new Mortal Kombat movie (spoilery details), Sean downplays the epidemic of suicide and drug overdose (hilarious), somehow we squeeze in more love for that weirdo Tom Cruise, and we share some details about our time as roommates.

We dive into a very specific portion of Jurassic Park and its famous director, which leads us into a discussion about whether Harrison Ford is a jerk. We also consider a Mission: Impossible / Bond crossover and delve once again into the scientific certainty that we're living in a simulation.

Klingon currency and delicious garbage.  Do you think games used to be easier? No, Sean, they did not.  Do you think movie composers used to be better? Yeah, they kind of did.  BY MENNEN!

Mike's temporarily dead, so sitting in for him is the mostly alive Patrick Passafiume.  He's got a list of grievances, which we somewhat address, but mostly ignore.  Because who cares about crap like that when the moon is getting faster!?

Joe is possibly being haunted... by the living.  And to whom do we owe thanks for making sci-fi and fantasy budgets bigger?  Do people remind you of people, and some people don't?  That's basically a quotation from this show... Jesus...

We feel a little sorry for women actually named Karen. We also talk SPACE, in a surprising turn of events, followed by a robust discussion of prestidigitation and other forms of illusion.

Do COVID vaccines grant superpowers? We talk about lesser and greater X-Men—X-People, more accurately. We also try to find sources of income for broke superheroes. How are you broke? Try harder.

The disparity between violence and nudity in American television, Sean and Joe get surprise Star Wars-related presents from Mike, we address casting announcements for the Obi-Wan series, and we rank the Star Wars movies! Basically… let’s talk Star Wars! Again!

We talk about recasting, particularly in the case of Batwoman and Black Panther, the popularity of various superhero shows, and we finally delve into the Snyder Cut. Tensions are high, passions are burning, and words are slurring.

The merits and demerits of Justin Long and Ace Ventura are both discussed at much too much length before we quickly devolve into a frank and serious talk about Superman's jizz.

Joe and Sean scheme to torture Mike for having interests, and a lot of dicks get blasted before an earnest discussion about business etiquette and movie franchises.

Sounds from space! Or IS it space? Mike disagrees. Can a moon have a moon? On the entertainment front, Sean has opinions on Tenet, we have man crushes (men crush?) on Michael Sheen, and de-aging technology still sucks.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
