Thank You for Doing This • Pray Bang

Another week, another bunch of crazy episodes of The Young Pope and Taboo to dig into. There was a common theme (somehow), and the guys make sure to give it the attention it deserves (NO SPOILERS!). Then Pat schools Chris on Ghost in the Shell (sorta), and they review the only thing matters from the film’s new trailer: THAT BODY SUIT.

Thank You for Doing This • Lenny, Tabane, and a New Game!

You feel that in the air? It’s a time for change! We’re approaching the end of the NFL season, and Pat and Chris make their Super Bowl pick. Can Pat stay on his playoff hot streak? Tune in to find out! But that’s not all! The guys also discuss the starts of two new, intriguing, enigmatic TV series that are setting an interesting tone for 2017: The Young Pope and Tabane. I mean, Taboo.. But that’s not all! Pat introduces Chris to the hot new game sweeping the country, Munn or Mara, PLUS a bonus On-the-Spot! It’s a packed agenda so strap yourselves in and lube yourselves up.

Thank You for Doing This • The Doctor is In

benAfter another hiatus (hey…get used it, folks), Pat and Chris are back with their signature takes, patented burns, and award-winning manlove you’ve come to know and love. They review the recent Marvel hit, Doctor Strange, and fawn over that sweet, sweet Cumberbatch. Then, they don their black hats and board that looping train to Westworld to discuss the finale and the first season as a whole. Finally, your old pal Top 5 is back as the guys discuss the “Worlds” they’d most like to visit.

Thank You for Doing This • Election Day Distraction

boomWell, the planets have aligned, the prophecy has come to pass, and here we are on the brink of armageddon. So if it’s all going to hell, why not spend some time NOT thinking about the election and instead strap yourself into to veritable smorgasbord of discussion with Pat and Chris. From the World Series to the NFL and from Westworld to John Wick, Wolverine, and Rogue One, the guys catch up on the past few weeks and look ahead to life after Election 2016.

MARTY! • Episode 15 • ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure’

bill-and-teds-excellent-adventure-posterMike 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 and Tim in Terminator 2, and like Robbie Rist, he’s had a long, successful career as a voice actor.

Thank You for Doing This • Finds A Way

ww…to keep talking about Westworld! After a little chat about Billy Bush and Luke Cage (not simultaneously), Pat and Chris dive into the second episode of HBO’s new Sunday night drama. Then, in the conclusion you’ve all been waiting for, Chris gives his reviews of In the Heart of the Sea and Deadpool. Needless to say, Pat’s heart is once again broken. Chris is unrepentant. They make up. It gets weird. You know….the usual.

Thank You for Doing This • Cowboys..ah..ah…HAD Their Chance

westworldYeeeeehaw! On this week’s barnburnin’ hootnnany of a show, those cattle-rustlin’ varmints Chris and Pat parlay about HBO’s newest big-budget Sunday drama, Westworld, and after talking about the show’s source material, the scope of the world, the phenomenal performances of Anthony Hopkins, and the questionable ethics of Ed Harris’ Man in Black, they’ve just got one question: what’s the protocol for cleaning out a sex robot?

Thank You for Doing This • After-debators

prezPat and Chris get down in the political muck with their thoughts on the first presidential debate between two of the least likable candidates in the history of politics. Then, they get into a debate of their own, discussing Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest TV Shows of all time: the hits, the misses, the head-scratchers, and the omissions. Because who doesn’t like a list? And who doesn’t like two morons talking about a list? And hey, shut up, you think you’re better than me?!

Thank You for Doing This • What We Did on Our Summer Vacation

mikeTwo in a row? You’re damn right! After last week’s NFL jock-sniffing extravaganza, Pat and Chris regroup to talk about all the stu….well, at least some of the stuff they watched or read over the past few months, including the 2016 Rio Olympics and the slightly-deniably amazing Michael Phelps, the Emmys, Stranger Things, Mr. Robot, Moby Dick (yeah, you read that right), and Game of Thrones. It will be quite painful….FOR YOU!
