”Independence Day” 1996 versus ”Resurgance” 2016, which invasion comes out on top?

”Independence Day” 1996 versus ”Resurgance” 2016, which invasion comes out on top?

Since we’re on hiatus for a while, we’ll be reposting some of our older shows!

What do Jeff Goldblum, Brent Spiner and Judd Hirsch have in common? A rampant hatred for alien invaders. That’s right, kids. It’s the ‘Independence Day’ episode! This week, we’re suiting up in our flight gear and flying our jets right up that alien motherships tail pipe. It’s time to punch those giant, green laser shooting aliens right in the face when the original 1996 version faces off against the 2016!

Fathers of the Bride! 1991 Steve Martin versus 2022 Andy Garcia!

This week we delve down into the psyche of one of the most unstable persons around, a #FatheroftheBride. Yes, the one person who is both the keystone on which an event occurs (or at least his credit card is) and the “leaf on the wind” which blows wherever the wants and needs of the bride take him. Yes, we’re watching the 1991 #SteveMartin version up against the 2022 HBO #AndyGarcia remake of a remake. Along with this you’ll get bizarre TikTok sandwich stories from Josh, #CricketFacts from Pat and even more. Join us as we walk down the aisle to give away the “Father of the Bride” show!

ALSO! We will be going on a break for a bit, and will be back online around Labor Day.

War of the Worlds! 1953’s Gene Barry original versus the 2005 Tom Cruise remake! Who comes out on top?

War of the Worlds! 1953’s Gene Barry original versus the 2005 Tom Cruise remake! Who comes out on top?

It’s a tale as old as time. Aliens come to our planet. Humans try to befriend them. Aliens shoot the humans. War begins. This week, we’re boarding the storybook train for H.G. Wells classic story ‘War of the Worlds’. Mike, Pat, Joel and Josh are discussing the finer points of the 1953 Byron Haskin film adaptation vs the 2005 #TomCruise and #StevenSpielberg update. While not as much dogfighting as in #TopGun, there will be loads of shooting, vaporizing and bird law, as it’s us vs the suction cupped fingered them. Who will win this ‘War of the Worlds’?

The Kids in the Hall are back and CRUSHING YOUR HEAD!

The Kids in the Hall are back and CRUSHING YOUR HEAD!

What do Sid Caesar and The Kids in the Hall have in common? Why were these comedy heroes resurrected by a guy in a towel? When did Shakespeare become so bloody funny?   You’re going to have to tune in to this very Canadian #KITH episode of ’40 Going On 14′ to find out! We all have our comedy heroes. Even our heroes have heroes. For a lot of comedians out there, these guys are their heroes. (That word has no meaning now, after saying it so much.)   Either listen to us first or watch the new series on #Amazonprime and binge the original series and then listen to us. No matter how you do it, you’re going to end up saying for the rest of the day, “I’m crushing your head!”

It’s the ”I Love Lucy Show” also starring ”Being the Ricardos” from Amazon Prime!

It’s the ”I Love Lucy Show” also starring ”Being the Ricardos” from Amazon Prime!

If you’re not familiar with Lucille Ball, you may have been living under a rock for the past 70+ years. For this very special episode, we’re revisiting the classic TV sitcom ‘I Love Lucy’. We’re also fast forwarding to the recent Amazon Prime biopic from Aaron Sorkin called ‘Being the Ricardos’.

All four of us grew up with wacky antics of Lucy, Desi, Fred and Ethel. We laughed, we cried and we all wanted a job at a chocolate factory. But there is so much more to this story. So much behind the scenes.

If you thought you knew Lucy, you may be in for some surprises. Get ready to stomp some grapes, drink some Vitameatavegamin and hop around on ledges with George Reeves aka Superman. We love Lucy and you should too!

TV Theme Songs – From Love Boat to Twin Peaks to Game of Thrones!

TV Theme Songs – From Love Boat to Twin Peaks to Game of Thrones!

What’s the magic behind a good TV theme song? It can make or break a show and is your first impression of what’s to come. It can also cross over and become a Billboard hit song, unless you’re the theme from ‘Star Trek: Enterprise’, but that’s another story. On this memory show, we’re digging into the finer points of the show intro. Which one is our favorite? Which one makes us rage quit the series? Well, after our own intro, you’ll find out! At this point, there are so many earworms in my head, I don’t think I’ll ever get them out. With all of that being said, take a listen…. if you dare.

Plan 9 From Outer Space – Was Ed Wood a Genius or a Madman?

Plan 9 From Outer Space – Was Ed Wood a Genius or a Madman?

The worst movie of all time? I beg to differ, (At least Joel does.) but that is the nomenclature it has been saddled with. (Yes, we’re reviewing “Plan 9 From Outer Space” this week, that 1957 Ed Wood sci-fi film that set the bar at a certain height.) Despite this, there was a remake in 2015 by the soon to be labeled genius, John Johnson (Don’t hold your breath on this one.). There will be blood in this episode, as opinions vary wildly, Edward D. Wood Jr has that effect on people. Can you handle the unfiltered facts, as they are the truth of the present and in the future. If you’re not familiar with either director, I’ll leave you with the quote to end all quotes. In the words of Eros, “Strong’? You see? You see! Your stupid minds! Stupid! Stupid!”
