The Simpsons: The Town

Join Scott and his special guests, Kevin and Hamish, as they breakdown and explain every little detail and reference from the Boston-themed episode of The Simpsons entitled "The Town"! Listen as Kevin and Scott give Hamish a full education in all things Massachusetts, from the founding of the Massachusetts Bay Colony all the way to Dunkin Donuts and Cumberland Farms! Hamish is still a little bitter from the treatment his native Australia received on The Simpsons years ago in the episode "Bart Vs. Australia", but he warmly embraces this hilarious take on New England life and culture! They'll talk all about the unique Jordan's Furniture stores, the New England Patriots and their various scandals, Paul Revere, traffic, Make Way For Ducklings, candlepin bowling, Quincy Market, Newbury Comics, and so much more! They'll explain every sign, every poster, every Boston joke, and every face in the crowd. So grab an iced coffee from Dunkies, turn off your old VHS recording of The Movie Loft, and get ready for one of the most detailed, comprehensive, and wicked awesome episodes of Hitting Play EVAH!

X-Men (1992): Come the Apocalypse

Join Scott and Hamish as they delve deep into the character of Apocalypse and break down the classic episode of the X-Men 1992 animated series entitled "Come the Apocalypse"! Listen as they discuss Apocalypse from his beginnings as Louise Simonson's leader of the "Alliance of Evil" in X-Factor #5 to his feature film debut in "X-Men: Apocalypse". They'll also review his four horsemen in their original forms, including the shocking transformation of Angel to Archangel in this episode, as well as the comic books. They'll also talk about the incredible anime intro that only aired in Japan (plus with some closing credits elsewhere), the ToyBiz line of action figures that was sometimes tied to the show, and a whole bunch of funny moments from the cartoon. And if that wasn't enough, Scott also plays a clip of an X-Men skit he recorded as a little kid. So put on your yellow spandex, leave Morph behind, and enjoy the show!

COMMENTARY: Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Join Scott and special guest, Star Wars expert Paul as they travel down a painful road, delve deep into a dark memory from their childhoods, and watch George Lucas' first installment of the Star Wars prequels: the infamous "Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace"! Listen as they discuss some of the terrible CGI, the crazy names and backstories for the many background characters, and make a somewhat modest defense for Jake Lloyd. (Hey, he was just a kid.) They'll point out cameos you may have missed, talk about "Episode I Racer" for Nintendo 64, and reminisce about falling for the hype and buying merchandise for the movie. All in real time as they watch the movie!!! Oh, and a "mystery guest" also calls in! 

It's a regular episode, but as an added bonus, it also syncs up with the movie! So, if you can, pop in your copy of the movie and listen along, otherwise just listen and enjoy our misery!

The Simpsons: Bart Vs. Australia (w/ Hamish McGregor)

Join Lily, Shawn, Scott, and special guest Hamish, joining them all the way from Australia, as they discuss the classic (and somewhat controversial) Simpsons episode: Bart Vs. Australia! Listen as Hamish sets the matters straight regarding all of the misrepresented aspects of Australian culture in this episode. Do Koalas create power outages? Is Foster's a popular Australian beer? How prevalent is boomerang throwing? Does Hamish eat kangaroos? How culturally accurate is the Outback Steakhouse? Hamish patiently fields all of these questions, and many more! A discussion that spans the globe! This episode is a bottle of beauty!
