COMMENTARY: Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope

Join Scott and special guest, Star Wars expert Paul as they travel a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Where merchandising was scant and the "clone wars" were nothing but a couple of throwaway lines. When one stormtrooper was tall enough to accidentally hit his head entering a room because he wasn't a genetic copy of Jango Fett. When "the Force" was just "the Force", and not something that could be cleared up with penicillin. That's right, they started at the true beginning and watched "Star Wars"! (Or "Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope") Listen as they give you a ton of information you may have never heard before and details you may have missed. They'll tell you what's been changed, who's who, and why this space epic is truly one of the greatest film of all time. (Oh, and Paul will tell you why R5-D4 might me the most important character in the trilogy...allegedly.) 

It's a regular episode, but as an added bonus, it also syncs up as a commentary for the movie! So, if you can, queue up your copy of the movie and watch along with us!

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!

COWTOWN (w/ Evan Wilson)

Join Scott and his very special guest, writer/actor/cool dude Evan Wilson, as they talk at length about the new sketch comedy show making its worldwide debut this week (on which Evan wrote and acted) the hilarious show described as Portlandia-meets-Calgary: "COWTOWN"! Listen as they also discuss such topics as: their mutual admiration of "The Best Show with Tom Scharpling", the comedic greatness of Andy Kindler, Norm MacDonald's new gig as Colonel Sanders, Scott's strange year-long script comedy bit, and the Canadian Comedy Award nominated radio program that Evan hosted along with funnyman Jesse Pruden called "Am I Right??" (Oh, and don't miss the proper usage of the word "fortuitous".) Cowtown is a show you don't want to miss! Gwanwicha!

Flight of the Conchords: Mugged (w/ K1 of One Wall Cinema)

Join Scott and special guest Kevin (AKA K1 of the movie riffing group One Wall Cinema) as they discuss the hilarious comedy about New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo: Flight of the Conchords! Listen as they detail the history of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement's work, from their early days touring with the Wellington comedy troupe "So You're a Man", to their great BBC Radio 2 series, to this HBO series, and the projects rumored to lie ahead. They'll breakdown some of the lyrical variations of songs in this episode, explain the brilliance of their musical wordplay and subtlety of their comedic delivery, and tell you why this is a show you should track down and watch. So check it out, and if you don't like it: Why? W- Why? W-why? Be more constructive with your feedback!
