Bob’s Burgers: Human Flesh

Join Lily, Shawn, and Scott as they break down the first episode of the wonderfully great FOX animated series: Bob's Burgers! Listen as they trace back the history of Loren Bouchard's work in animation with Jon Benjamin, going all the way back to the hilarity of Home Movies, and the delightful "Squigglevision" classic: Dr. Katz. They'll also discuss the lost character of Dan and how the now beloved Belchers were originally intended to be a family of cannibals! (Yes, really!) Also, they'll attempt to come up with some puntastic burger recipes of their own. Don't taste me, bro!

BONUS EPISODE: Danger 5

Join Lily, Shawn, Scott, and special guest Hamish as they sit down for a bonus episode of Hitting Play to discuss Australian TV and films, especially the great series Danger 5. Listen to Hamish's interesting tale of how his funny and creative Danger 5-themed Vines caught the attention of the show's creators, and how his fandom ultimately earned him an invite to meet the cast and crew and appear in an episode! 
 
He'll also help the crew properly pronounce Canberra, accidentally create a concept for an Australian Michael Bay film, and compare the current state of television in Australia and the U.S. So sit back with a hot prawn cocktail, pour yourself a tomato ketchup daiquiri, and enjoy the show!

Atari: Game Over

Join Lily, Shawn, and Scott as they review Atari: Game Over, the first documentary in Xbox Live's Signal to Noise series. Listen as they discuss the rise and fall of Atari Inc., the colossal commercial failure of E.T. The Game, the urban legend of the burial of millions of unsold E.T. The Game cartridges in a New Mexico landfill, and the years of undeserved blame placed on game designer Howard Scott Warshaw. From the Atari 2600 to Game Genie to Raspberry Pis to why having Steven Spielberg attached to your project may not necessarily be a good thing, they talk about it all!(Also Scott surprises the crew with a gift to commemorate the episode.) Hopefully this is one to phone home about!

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Phantasms (w/ Bonnaventure James)

Join Lily, Scott, as they're joined by special guest Jaron (AKA Bonnaventure James, the great electronic musician from Calgary, Alberta) to breakdown Phantasms, the strange episode from the seventh season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Listen as they discuss the imagery of Data's nightmares, the convenience of his many abilities, and why you should never buy your engine parts from Thanatos VII. Not to mention all of the delicious cellular peptide cake talk! This is a special one, but as Freud once said, "Sometimes a podcast is just a podcast." 
 
All music used in this episode is from Bonnaventure James' EP "Not By A Mile". Download it on iTunes: https://itun.es/us/OxYE6

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! It's a miracle!
