Mister T: Mystery of the Golden Medallions

Join Scott and Kevin as they take a look back an an obscure Hanna-Barbera cartoon centered around a larger-than-life character who was a real-life pop culture powerhouse: "Mister T"! Listen as they breakdown the glorious episode "Mystery of the Golden Medallions", in which gymnastics coach Mr. T leads his team around the unrealistically steep streets of San Francisco and attempt to solve a convoluted mystery involving gold chains (not his, amazingly), a missing little brother, and stolen video game programming-all while struggling to welcome a new gymnast to the team: Woody Daniels, played by Phil Lamarr in his first credited role! They'll also discuss some of the strange supporting characters such as the annoying Spike, the disturbing Dozer, Jeff the idiot, and many more! From inaccurate math and physics that is totally bananas, to a head scratching plot and hilarious animation mistakes, this has it all! So engage your emergency brake, hide your gold jewelry, and shake your head back and forth in bewilderment along with us! Pity us fools!

Generation X

Join Scott and Hamish as they take a look back at what is technically the very first X-Men movie, the 1996 made-for-TV: "Generation X"! Listen as they review this feature length TV movie that was also a failed pilot for a possible series. They'll compare the original members of the team that are seen in the Uncanny X-Men and Generation X comic books to their live-action counterparts. They'll also discuss the new characters that were created just for this production, the interesting acting choices of Matt Frewer, scenes that were cut or reshot for television, and the possible impact that a picked up Generation X series would have on the X-Men cinematic franchise that would start only four years later. From cheesy CGI and X-ray vision, to accents and dream webs, they'll review it all! So put on your dream helmet and ride the white light as you laugh along with us! Zap!

Beavis and Butt-Head: The Great Cornholio

Join Scott and Shawn as they take a look back at one of the quintessential cartoons of the 90's: Beavis and Butt-Head! And of course, if you only had to pick one episode of Beavis and Butt-Head to watch, it's the one being reviewed in this week's episode: "The Great Cornholio"! An episode with big pop culture significance. So much so that it changed the word "bunghole" forever. Listen as they detail the history of the show, from a short called Frog Baseball made by a former physics student named Mike Judge, to a long running and beloved series on MTV, to a full-length feature film, to a one season only revival in 2011. They'll talk about the issues with the home video releases, including what was cut from this episode, their own experiences with the show growing up in the 90's, and what exactly made this show about two stupid high school aged losers so hilarious and special. So devour some candy, down a six pack of root beer, pull your collar over your head, and look for TP along with us!

Star Wars: Droids: The Revenge of Kybo Ren

Join Scott and Hamish as they take a look back at an episode of an often forgotten chapter of the Star Wars saga: "Star Wars: Droids!" Listen as they breakdown and review the eighth episode "The Revenge of Kybo Ren". They'll talk all about the chronology of the series, the status of its canonicity, and especially the curious character of the space pirate Kybo Ren, whose name seems way too similar to "Kylo Ren" to be just a coincidence. Does this cartoon have anything to do with the movies? How did C3PO and R2D2 have these adventures independent of the other cinematic characters? Did George Lucas change anything for the home video release? Wait, why is there a Klingon ship in this?! They'll answer all of these, and much much more! So wheel yourself space cake, disable your green force field, and laugh along at whatever this cartoon was trying to do! Bleep bloop!
