One Crazy Summer (w/ Graig Murphy)

Join Scott and his very special guest, standup comedian and WEEI Whiner Line Hall of Famer Graig Murphy, as they discuss one of the greatest (and underrated) comedic films of the 1980s: One Crazy Summer! They'll start by recounting their past experiences as award winning callers to The Big Show's Whiner Line, once one of the most popular sports radio segments in Boston, and their very different reactions to trying to tell jokes to a large, local celebrity filled crowd. From there, they discuss the other major thing they have in common: growing up constantly watching One Crazy Summer. Listen as they discuss the masterful writing and direction of Savage Steve Holland, the great animated rhino sequences, the many Cape Cod locations at which it was filmed, the hilariously absurd sight gags, subtle jokes you may missed, and why the rules of the Nantucket Regatta are apparently rarely enforced. From the great casting of John Cusack, Demi Moore, Bobcat Goldthwait, Joel Murray, Curtis Armstrong, and Joe Flaherty, to the possibility of the sequel "One Epic Fall", they cover it all! So sit back, grab a garbage bag sized popcorn, and listen for the jingle.

Firefly: Serenity

Join Shawn and Scott as they breakdown "Serenity", not the feature film, but the true pilot for the cult sci-fi series that was canceled much to soon: "Firefly". Listen as they discuss what made this different from other works of science fiction, why FOX actually aired the pilot episode last, the unique fusion of American and Chinese cultures found throughout the series, and much more! They'll also talk about the great characters, the parallels that can be drawn to the American Old West, the attention to detail in the show's look, the excellent writing by creator Joss Whedon, and why lawn chair technology evidently hasn't changed in 500 years. So sit back, gnaw on a nutritional immunization bar and enjoy this episode like a strawberry. Ooh grandpa!

Maximum Carnage

Join Scott and Hamish as they take a look back and discuss the epic Marvel Comics' Spider-Man crossover event of 1994 and the amazing video game it spawned: "Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage"! Listen as they review what made this video game unique, from its limited edition red cartridge to its comic book panel cut scenes, to its Green Jellÿ soundtrack. They'll also discuss its frustrating game play, the histories of the characters involved, their own personal experiences with the game, and much, much more! So rent the game, grab a pizza, and enjoy the show! (And watch out for bald guys with umbrellas!)

Sealab 2021: I, Robot

Join Scott as he takes a trip under the sea and reviews "I, Robot", a hilarious episode of the Adult Swim cartoon hit Sealab 2021! Listen as he details some of the craziest, and nonsensical conversations ever to take place on television. (There's a lot of talk about robot bodies!) He'll talk about the show's creators, Adam Reid and Matt Thompson, and how their discovery of an old tape in 1995 led them to the creation of this show, then Frisky Dingo, then Archer. Also mentioned is the great artist Alex Toth, who not only did art and design for the original series that this was based on, Sealab 2020, but also Space Ghost, Birdman, and many old Hanna Barbara cartoons that were given new life on Adult Swim. Scott also talks about Alex Toth's work on one key issue of X-Men, and how if it wasn't for the intervention of another comics legend, a certain classic character would've ended up looking like a weird Space Ghost villain. And much more! So put on your scuba gear, turn off your chainsaw hands, and enjoy the show! (Not you, Pod 6, you jerks!)
