Flopcast episode 586! Welcome back to 1986! (We need you for Hands Across America. Please go stand in the middle of Iowa for nine hours.) Kornflake has a goofy 1986 commercial in which the voice of God screams at you about drain cleaners. Then Kevin has a concert report on
Flopcast episode 585! As we cross the halfway point in our ten-part exploration of the 1980s, we’re randomly recasting the movies of 1985, and hopefully making them weirder. We might extract Chevy Chase from Fletch, for example, and drop him into the Kelly LeBrock role in Weird Science. That would free up
Flopcast episode 584! Our ten-episode trip through the 1980s continues, and we’re looking at some very short-lived sitcoms from 1984. Including: The Duck Factory (starring Jim Carrey and Dippy Duck), Dreams (with John Stamos, Jami Gertz, and breakdancing), E/R (not the medical drama with George Clooney, but the medical sitcom with George Clooney), It’s Your Move (with Jason
Flopcast episode 583! This week we’re back in 1983! Kornflake shares a goofy 1983 commercial for Dial soap, while Kevin takes an absurdly quick look at the pop music of 1983. It was the year new wave conquered the Top 40, and we approved. (For more complete coverage of 1983
Cigar Nerds Podcast: Beast Wars. Happy 4th of July! This week we review Transformers Rise of the Beasts. You know your old when the 90s is considered retro. My back hurts just thinking about it. In science we talk about Chernobyl living, Watching porn for science, the anniversary of the
It’s 1982 (in our hearts, at least), so we’re looking at the Mad magazines of 1982. (Historians agree that for a truly accurate account of the past, you should just read Mad. Plus you get to do the Fold-In.) That year Mad’s TV and movie parodies included Raiders of the Lost Ark, Archie Bunker’s Place, Family
But First, Let’s Talk Nerdy Episode 84! Welcome to our 4th annual Pride episode, celebrating one of our favorite times of year! Martha is talking about Batwoman, AKA Kate Kane, and Brittany is talking about a bunch of lesser known Queer characters who may not warrant their own episodes, but
Flopcast episode 581! Continuing our ten week celebration of the 1980s, we have some silly artifacts to examine from 1981. First Kornflake brings us a couple of Dr Pepper commercials featuring David Naughton (from Makin’ It), Mickey Rooney (from One of the Boys), and the classic two-person horse costume (from our dreams).
Cigar Nerds Podcast: Extraction 2 . Well we called it #rakelives. This week we’re talking about tactical Thor in Netflix’s Extraction 2. If you want great action movies start letting more stunt guys direct movies. This thing is stressful. In science we’re talking about ducking Iphones, sex championships, using wolf
Flopcast Episode 580 means we’re kicking off another ten weeks of episodes dedicated to each year of the 1980s. (So yes, everybody will be forced to Wang Chung this summer.) We’re starting with 1980, and we’re looking at some of our favorite albums from that year. There’s some new wave
But First, Let’s Talk Nerdy Episode 83! In this week’s episode, Brittany describes the various creepy entities populating the hugely popular horror fiction podcast, The Magnus Archives. Then Martha discusses one of her favorite DC animated movies, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. But First, Let’s Talk Nerdy on Instagram!
Flopcast episode 579! We start with a little follow-up from our recent Maids v. Butlers FlopFight. It’s the “honorable mention” list of maids and butlers we couldn’t fit in the tournament, including characters from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Hazel, I Married Dora, and more. (Rest assured, we did not forget about We Got
