BONUS EPISODE: Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (Our Immediate Reactions)

WARNING: SPOILERS AND MAJOR PLOT POINTS ARE DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE! MAKE SURE YOU SEE THE MOVIE BEFORE LISTENING! 

Join Scott and Shawn as they discuss their immediate reaction to seeing Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens on opening day. Shawn and Scott recorded this discussion on their ride to and from the theater to capture their initial opinions of what they just saw. On the way, they'll talk about some lingering questions they had about the film, and on the way back, if those questions were answered, and even some new ones that arose. (They'll also talk about the stern warning that the projectionist gave to the crowd after pausing the movie. That was a first.) So take a ride to the theater with us, and may the force be with you! 

For a more in-depth discussion of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, check out our next 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!
