00:00 Drat! And double drat! Yet another week that the Paul And Spike Show sock puppet has to go back in the box. Curses! Paul is "sub-meh" thanks to allergies, but legendary blogger Marc The Film Geek joins the show to add 33% filmy goodness. Thanks to peer pressure, the boy's come prepared to run with the big dawgs. Spike ting-ting-tings his bottle/can hybrid whilst Paul And Marc discuss the relative hotness of Ariel the Sorceress off of tv's "Thundarr The Barbarian". Ye-e-e-e-e-sssss.

18:25 Pickin' And Grinnin'... And Pickin'! Marc joins The Boys in the painful pun-o-rama newsfest that covers the week in current affairs, and smells like moonshine.

20:34 This Week In Stuff, where The Boys discuss what they're "inta". Spike learned something from a documentary, Paul's having issues with death and a dirty screen and Marc has discovered a new comic book series in which a good superhero turns bad. It's no Shakespeare... but it is Irredeemable. Oh, and by the way... ceiling ghost grandma is watching you masturbate. {{shudder}}

31:40 Over/Under - Warning, ma cherie: zeese segment contains gratuitous Boyer. What with "The Feeeelm Geek" himself in town, O/U could only be about movies, right? The Boys pick '80s Movies' as their subject, and Marc thinks his Over might be a shocker! There's two movies you've probably not seen, one movie that wasn't as popular as the one that came before it, and a visit by the ice cream truck. Also: Which recent cinematic masterpiece did Spike's mum classify as "the gayest movie ever made", and does non mean non? Oui, Pepe, vous bête dégoûtante!

1:00:50 The results of last week's Haiku Book Review yields a bounty of joy from the TPASS audience who are a bunch of frighteningly smart folks. Which makes you wonder what the hell they're doing listening to THIS pile of bilge. Who wins $10 to spend at And what did they review? I don't know if are having a sale, but it's two for one week at the 'Gen-X Ice Pun Shop'.

1:03:30 Marc talks about his upcoming Star Trek blog post, and Paul digs his heels in further about not seeing it. His three-word pre-review: "it looks atrocious".

TFG - I think you did a nice job! Props & snaps to Paul & Spike for opening up to guests.

The ability to access the podcast is great! I can't always listen live (as opposed to dead) so I love the option of listening other-than-live-but-not-dead.
