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

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!!!
 
Cut the Shit:
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

It’s the last episode of the Halloween season and we wanted to go out with a scream!!!

EP33 - Friday the 13th: The Series “Hellowe’en”

October 23, 2018

It's a Halloween episode of a Friday the 13th TV show!! Obviously it's gonna be Jason vs. Michael right?!?!? Not exactly... I mean, not at all, even a little bit. But it IS going to have a crystal ball, a ghost uncle, and an old man wearing a Merlin costume! And that's just as good! Right? Along the way we debate the definition of "co-ed," and whether or not the series invented Halloween, but we can all agree that Steve Zahn makes everything better. Also Mike teaches everyone the fascinating history of the origins of Friday the 13th, and Morgan calls the characters a bunch of Hokey Pokies!! Yeah, this one gets pretty explicit.
