Parks and Recreation: Hunting Trip

Join Scott and Matt as they breakdown and review "Hunting Trip", a hilarious episode of one of the funniest sitcoms of the last decade: "Parks and Recreation"! Listen as they discuss the history of this show, from its original conception as a spinoff from The Office, to lasting seven seasons on NBC as a staple of its Thursday night comedy block. They'll talk about the long history of the Pawnee City Hall building (really located in Pasadena, California) and how its ridiculous size and cost was actually explained in a companion book for the series. They'll also talk about the amazing cast, the great improvised moments, the real Ron Swanson, how the character of Andy Dwyer changed, and much, much more! Oh, and also a couple of side discussions about turkeys and Funko Pop figures! So grab yourself some turkey (or tofu equivalent), put on your fluorescent hat and survey the Indiana wilderness along with us! Boola! Boola! Boola!

Angie Tribeca: Pilot

Join Scott and his special guests, husband and wife team, Kevin and Sarah, as they review the pilot episode of the hilarious police procedural spoof, "Angie Tribeca", created by another husband and wife team, Steve Carell and Nancy Walls. Listen as they discuss the shows' incredible joke density, from visual gags you would have missed, to the brilliant acting of Rashida Jones (in the title role of Angie Tribeca) and her 237th partner J. Geils, played by Hayes MacArthur. They'll also talk about the many celebrity guests and cameos that appear throughout season one, such as Rashida Jones' real life father Quincy Jones, Bill Murray, Keegan-Michael Key, and even a very funny guest appearance by the actual mayor of Los Angeles playing a security guard for the mayor of Los Angeles. There's so much to cover and not enough space to do it in the description, so with all due respect, listen to this episode!

The Office (US): The Alliance (w/ Bottlerocket)

Join Scott, Kevin, and special guest Vine superstar Bottlerocket as they review "The Alliance", a hilarious early episode of NBC's hit adapted Britcom The Office! Listen as they discuss how this series differed from its UK counterpart, some hidden jokes you may have missed, and what scenes were left on the cutting room floor. They'll also talk about their own experiences with office life, why not quite everybody can stand Steve Carrell's Michael Scott character, and other celebrities that auditioned for roles in the show. So take a break, have an alliance member tape you up in a cardboard box (poke some air holes first) and enjoy the show!

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy Goes Outside!

Join Lily, Shawn, and Scott, live from their respective underground bunkers, as they review the first episode of the hilarious Tina Fey and Robert Carlock Netflix original series: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! Listen as they discuss its many connections to 30 Rock, its mind warping joke density, and how Ellie Kemper is perfect for this role. How did Netflix get their hands on this? How did it differ from the original script? What's a Tamagotchi? We talk about it! (Plus, some special shoutouts for our 5-star reviewers.) It's a miracle!
