Galactica 1980: Galactica Discovers Earth

Join Scott and Steve as they discuss the premiere episode of the short-lived reboot of the Battlestar Galactica franchise: "Galactica 1980"! Listen as they delve deep into the sordid details of this disastrous production, from over-inflated budgets and a writing staff rooting for the show's cancellation to dislike of child actors and a screenwriter who stayed thousands of miles away from the set. They'll also talk about the terrible three-episode story arc involving time warps, World War II, and a very distasteful flying motorcycle scene. Can you believe this thing was nominated for a primetime Emmy?! It was...for outstanding costume design! (That's right, the brown leather jackets were the true talent here.) So turn your vipers invisible, secure your language-tron translators, and laugh at this terrible show with us!

Tom Goes to the Mayor: Glass Eyes

Join Scott, and um, a familiar guest, as they review "Glass Eyes", a hilarious episode of the Adult Swim animated cult hit, created by Tim and Eric: "Tom Goes To the Mayor"! Listen as they discuss how Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim mailed copies of their funny videos to their comedic idols, and how one recipient gave them their big break. They'll also talk about the original pitch for the show, why this episode had to be rewritten numerous times, and the complicated absurdity of this episode, which required Tim and Eric to make a chart in their office. From community spirit, shopping, and food, to barrel goats, archery, and glass eyes, this one has it all. So sit back with a hoogie, protect your eyes, and enjoy the show!

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!
