EP44 - Life with Lucy

January 16, 2019
 
Lucy's definitely got some s'plaining to do! After three smash hit television series, the comedic legend sadly ended her illustrious career with this universally panned 80s sitcom, Life with Lucy. It's the classic story of a widow, her son-in-law's father, a hardware store, pineapple boxes, Jenny Lewis, and a bunch of bland randos living in a house! Also it may or may not feature a cameo by Desi Arnez, Jr. and Automan (spoiler: it doesn't). There's also some tips about farm living, Morgan gives some very NSFW nicknames to Huey Dewey and Louie, and Mike pitches a the hip-hop supergroup Jazzy Jeff and The Funky Bunch! Listen up, and have a... Ball!

EP43 - Baby Bob

January 8, 2019
 
Oh Baby! Mike and Morgan are crying for their mommies after watching this dirty diaper of a show! It's the sitcom everyone in 2002 was clamoring for, based on a dumb Quiznos commercial, and starring a freaking talking baby: Baby Bob. They also rattle on about Baby Bob Balaban, speculate that the Chicago Fire franchise is just an elaborate ruse, and briefly remember that Tila Tequila was a thing! Strap into your booster seats kids, it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

EP42 - Good Reception: Tru Calling

January 1, 2019
Happy New Year! We start 2019 off on a positive note with our long awaited return to Good Reception! Mike makes Morgan watch one of his favorite short-lived series, the terrific time-looper, Tru Calling! With the likes of Eliza Dushku and Zach Galifianakis, a killer premise, and epically 2003 soundtrack, how did this high-concept thriller not last? And more importantly will Morgan agree that it’s a winner, or will she stab Mike through the heart like some kind of evil vampire slayer?
 
This episode also features plenty of musical numbers, countless interruptions, a discussion of 2003 hunks, an attempt to name any young person, and the coining several phrases, including “Riding the Unicorn to the Powder Waterfall,” “I got the Bad News Browns” and “Gleaming the Pube!”
 
Cut the Shit:
Mike: iZombie

You’re in store for lots of singing, uncontrollable giggling, sexual innuendo, dirty words, vowel confusion and porn stores galore!

EP40 - Woops!

December 11, 2018
Oopsie-doodle, everyone on Earth is dead and all you got was this stupid 90s sitcom! Josh Hollis (of the fantastic Predict-O-Cast) joins us to talk about Woops!, a high-concept FOX sitcom that deals with some VERY heavy themes with the with all the delicacy of an atomic blast. TV Guide named it one of the 50 worst TV shows ever made, but is there anything to like about this ratings bomb? Join us for discussions on the durability of Volvos, Santa Claus cameos, and lacking laugh tracks. Plus we join a biker gang!
...JUST KIDDING!!!

Mike: Christmas Music & A Very Kasey Christmas

EP39 - Saved by the Bell: The New Class

December 4, 2018

School's in session this episode, as we visit everyone's favorite institute of higher learning, Bayside High! Unfortunately Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski are nowhere to be found, instead we get Weasel, Tommy D., and a whole slew of third-rate knock-offs (AKA "The New Class"). In other news, we're super excited to announce that we are now part of the fantastic PodFix Network!! But are we worthy of joining this elite group? If our knowledge of the original Saved by the Bell is any measure, then it's a resounding NO. However, I think we more than make up for it in Wu-Tang lyrics, 90s computer hacking skills, and being on the edge of hipster fashion! Plus Morgan declaires her unbridled lust for Mr. Belding, and Mike rambles about the history of slasher films. This Ep is a total babe!

Cut the Shit:

Morgan: Meet Me in St. Louis

Mike: Black Christmas (1974)

EP38 - Sons of Thunder

November 27, 2018

Howdy Pardners! We took a trip to the Lone Star state to visit everyone’s favorite bearded butt-kicker, Chuck Norris! Did you know that Walker, Texas Ranger had a very short-lived spinoff, inexplicably titled Sons of Thunder? Apparently neither did anyone else! This gritty, murder-filled, Southern-fried, karate/detective noir has something for everyone. Especially if you’re looking for ridiculous music cues! Plus, Morgan can’t contain her potty mouth, Mike explains the super real details of what a Texas Ranger is, and we out Chuck Norris as a robot! It’s a roundhouse kick to your funny bone!

Cut the Shit: 

Morgan: The Haunting of Hill House

Mike: Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Gauntlet

EP37 - Bosom Buddies - Hanksgiving Special

November 21, 2018

Happy Hanksgiving!! We celebrate the thankful season with America’s most beloved actor, and patron saint of yell-talk comedy, Tom Hanks! We watched the 80s sitcom Bosom Buddies co-starring Peter Scolari, and other familiar faces we couldn’t place, but are pretty sure we know from other stuff. Morgan apparently had no idea what the show was about, so lets hope it’s not too much of a drag for her! We spend a lot of time talking about other shows (Spaced, The Greatest Event in Television History) and naming as many Tom Hanks movies as we can off the top of our heads. Plus Morgan tries out some new catch phrases and we get into a heated discussion over who is pulling off the womanly look better. Gobble gobble!

Cut the Shit: Every Tom Hanks Movie Ever

EP36 - Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation

November 13, 2018

Cowabunga, dudes! Get ready for one shell of an episode! We’re joined by Chris of the More Gooder Than podcast along with his hilarious and charming wife, Alyse! From Saban (the guys that brought you Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers), it’s the low budget, live-action TMNT show that absolutely no one was asking for! Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. There’s plenty to talk about including Mike’s creepy nickname for Morgan, Chris and Alyse being tormented by a phantom tapper at their house, and Morgan definitely knows who the “red one” is and how to pronounce his name! This was a super fun Ep to record, hope you guys enjoy it!!

Cut the Shit:

Chris and Alyse: The Holidays!

Morgan: Bobby Kennedy for President

Mike: Turtles Forever

EP35 - Adventures in Babysitting

November 6, 2018

You got those babysitting blues? Well I hope our delirious laughter and fart jokes will cheer you up because this small screen spinoff never got off the ground. However, thanks to the magic of YouTube we were able to watch the "unaired pilot" for Adventures in Babysitting (it obviously was aired, just never picked up to series). We also talk about our favorite celebrity couple, Blenifer, set up the immensely important trash compactor poll, spend way too long talking about Boz Scaggs (an artists we seemingly know nothing about), Morgan declares her love for Vincent D'Onofrio and we get the "tortle chortles!!"

Cut the Shit:
Morgan: Jenny Lewis & The Watson Twins - Rabbit Fur Coat
Mike: Making a Murderer - Season 2
