In this very special holiday edition of TYFDT, Pat and Chris provide you with the freshest content they possibly can this time of year: a review of the new Star Wars stand-alone film, Rogue One. Listen as Pat schools Chris (again) on Star Wars facts, like where Jakku is, what bacta does, and who the hell Director Krennic really is.
We then move on to discuss the documentary, Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films. A fantastic, deep dive into a company that created scores of movies that have touched our lives… and maybe some other places as well. We finish up with a great discussion on gratuitous nudity and aerobics in space.

On this week’s angsty episode, Chris and Pat dive into the cultural phenomenon of Netflix’s new docu-series, Making a Murderer. After lengthy discussions on the ignorance of Wisconsin’s law enforcement, Pat does everyone a favor and straight-up solves the crime, while Chris ponders the cultural impact of true crime entertainment in the wake of MaM’s sister shows, Serial and The Jinx. Also, FOOTBALL! (Skip ahead roughly 15 minutes if you don’t want to hear Pat gloat about how he went 4-for-4 last week in his picks).
We’re back from the holidays to talk about the only thing anyone’s been talking about these days…Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Chris and Pat talk about the many pros, the (very few) cons, and theories on some of the film’s open questions, like: how did Adam Driver’s hair get SO beautiful? Then, the guys look back at the NFL regular season and their miserable picks, confirming that they – in no way, shape, or form – should be taken seriously when it comes to sports…And then they pick the winners of this week’s first-round playoff match-ups! All of that and more on the 20th(!) episode of Thank You For Doing This!
Pat and Chris get into the holiday spirit with a little chat about the finer points of yule log-related marketing, featuring one of their faves, Nick Offerman. Then, they discuss Carrie Fisher’s unhinged (and unsettling) interview with Good Morning America to promote the upcoming Star Wars film. (We swear we’ll only talk about Star Wars 150 more times). Finally, they wrap up with two of their most anticipated films of the month, In the Heart of the Sea, and The Revenant. This podcast was inspired by true events.
We ramble, rant, and rave for nearly another two hours about Princess Bride, shitty drum-playing neighbors, the pros & cons of clenching your butt-cheeks during a spanking, Captain America: Civil War, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Trek, J.J. Abrams, George Lucas, Hayden Christensen, Rambo prequels, and whole metric shit-ton more!!
Happy Holidays Everyone!*
*Just in case we are lazy asses and don’t make another ‘cast till 2016!
Thank You For Doing This! returns from hiatus following Chris’s multi-week journey around the world. He and Pat pick up right where they left off, touching on some TV (Fargo, Jessica Jones), Charlie Sheen’s health dilemma, and Ronda Rousey’s new jawline! Pat goes on to explain why he’s currently lacking whelm when it comes to the Captain America Civil War Trailer, and Chris returns serve in response to the new footage from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Then it’s time for another Top 5! The boys submit their Top 5 Movie Reboots We Want to See Happen, and then finish it off with some more Star Wars talk and a very special Tina Fey tribute!
Chris and Pat can barely keep themselves together, which can only mean one thing: the new Star Wars trailer is out! They break down what they saw, discuss the finer points of Death Star propulsion, and wonder how Chewie keeps from going gray. Then, in this week’s edition of “Chris’s Recommendations“, the guys gush about the USA TV show, Mr. Robot, which aired earlier this year and has them asking, “Do you go around and look up all the hackers’ skirts?” (You’ll get the reference.) Finally, after a little segue into The Martian, Chris and Pat once again have it out (sort of). As Coach Lou Brown would say, “That’s called a streak. It HAS happened before.”
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!
