Mike and Rus have returned!This episode was actually recorded in August, but Rus only recently got it edited up and ready for your ear-holes. The main topic this time around is one of the guys’ favorite movies, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure!
So step into the time-traveling phone booth and prepare to put history at your fingertips, party on, and be excellent to each other!
Rus makes one of his erroneous claims about an actor again, and there’s some talk about, Robbie Rist, aka Cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch (and successful voice actor and musician). Then Mike forces Rus’s hand, and Rus explains the Danny Cooksey incident, previously mentioned in the Terminator MARTY episode. Danny Cooksey was Sam on Diff’rent Strokes andTim in Terminator 2, and like Robbie Rist, he’s had a long, successful career as a voice actor.
Just over two weeks, and Rus & Pat are back! This is another 2 hour episode, but it’s basically two episodes in one. It starts with a brief discussion of Patrick Warburton and Louis CK, leading into the now-late Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond) which leads into talking about the ’80s show Remington Steele, Pierce Brosnan, and James Bond and Batman films. They then get into who would make a cool villain in the upcoming film Spider-Man • Homecoming. The second half of this episode has the guys talking about personal comics projects they’re working on these days when they should be sleeping (according to doctors — what do they know?).
In this week’s episode, Pat and Chris discuss two films they were really excited about and were subsequently let down by: The Revenant and The Hateful Eight. In short: don’t believe the hype! Before that, though, the guys catch up on the gloriously beautiful trainwreck that is The People vs. OJ Simpson. Additional subtitles for today’s episode are: Movies You Don’t Need to See, and How You Shouldn’t Spend 5.5 Hours of Your Life.
This is probably our worst episode yet, but we had fun. And if you listen — when you listen — we hope you have fun as well. Break out the bubbly, or maybe a few cans of Chernobly Energy Drink, because it’s time to jump in the hot tub — the Hot Tub Time Machine, and Hot Tub Time Machine 2, of course! Neither of these movies represent anything near the best in stories about time travel, but they do offer a few fun ways of looking at the idea. Enjoy, you nerd…
Things get HEATED on this week’s episode. After breaking down whatever is going on with Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt’s sub-par performance so far, Chris and Pat tackle (see what we did there?) their Top 5 Movie Monologues. We think you’ll find that they’re riveting, electric, engrossing, and all sorts of other over-used superlatives. Then finally, the guys air out their grievances over…something. They’re not sure, but everything seems to work out in the end… OR DOES IT?!
Dinosaurs! We recorded this last week, and we can’t remember everything we talked about, but we know we talked about dinosaurs, and what our favorite prehistoric period is. There are, of course, tangents galore… We’ll return to better descriptions next time. Oh, and Pat created a fun, geeky, new intro, too! We’ll shorten that up eventually, but see if you can catch what all the sound clips are from… before we get a cease-and-desist from John Williams or his people.
As it was, so it is again. Meaning: we talk Star Trek again! Specifically, we discuss William Shatner’s new Trek documentaryChaos on the Bridge,exploring the tumultuous path of the creation of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Gene Roddenberry’s vision for the future. Before we get into that though we give a brief tribute to “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, who died last week, too young. Of course that takes us down some tangents dealing with everything from pro-wrestling to the current state of internet-fueled outrage, but somehow we get back on track — er — Trek.
Welcome back to the 4th episode of Thank You For Doing This! Chris and Pat discuss the latest ruling from the NFL on Tom Brady’s four game suspension, then delve into what’s left of the New York Giants, Jason Pierre-Paul’s hand and career. We go back to our roots and list our Top Five Movie Weapons (you can find our faves in All-Things-Geek!), then it’s Chris’s turn to put Pat, On the Spot, with another thought-provoking question. We finish as always with our Beers of the Week… cool, clean, crisp, and loaded with hops!
