00:00 After a brief schedule update - and a plug for the new PaulAndSpike.com website, it's right into the fray with all the usual gubbins, including a sore forehead.
02:24 The Internets - all of them - have been ablaze about Obama's ghastly middle east mistake. He bowed to a foreign leader, when he was supposed to have been rude and condescending. Get with the program, Barry Hussein! Spike reads out some hilarious feedback from an LA Times article about the breach of protocol. One of them includes the phrase "silken buttock line" - but not as a compliment.
10:52 Both of The Boys have several orders in for Sarah Palin's new book; one for the toilet, one for the Kindle, and one to hold up a shaky table leg. Some AP sharks have been doing "opposition research" and were shocked... SHOCKED to find that some facts were wrong.
21:44 The New Musical Express have released a list of the "Top Albums Of The Decade"! See how many (if any) The Boys recognize from the top ten. (hint: at least one... but not many more.)
26:50 Car parts in the yard, a house on blocks, dogs chained up outside and the sweet, sweet smell of meth wafting gently across the "trailer village" as the week's news and current affairs are examined in full detail via "Pickin' And Grinnin'!"
30:56 "This Week In Stuff", the segment of the show where The Boys share their media week, in order to help you make better reading/watching/huffing decisions. And let me tell you, this week's is HORRENDOUS!! ...no, wait. TREMENDOUS! Paul has been busy; he got to go outside before the crack of dawn to watch meteors (sorry ladies, he's taken) and bought an album - legally! REALLY! - unheard, from so-called Supergroup "Them Crooked Vultures". Two more movies get crossed off the Ebert list: "La Dolce Vita" and "Bonnie and Clyde". Ebert wasn't kind this week, sadly.
41:44 Spike's media week has been less thrilling - he watched "The Execution Of Gary Glitter" and had a fit of hysterics over the Michael Jackson Seance and an episode of The Steve Wilkos Show. Also - Dr Who in high definition? Believe it! ...but was it enough to turn the hardened HD unbeliever over to the sharper side?
55.35 This week sees the release of the new "Twilight" movie. I bet you didn't know that, did you? Honestly, someone should do some promotion for it! The Boys discuss where the scales tip between an over-saturation of Twilight and Harry Potter being annoying, and being products that are tearing today's teenagers away from their File-o-Faxes and Dreamcasts and discotheques and making them read books again.
59:53 Inspired by the 'Twilight' situation, The Boys and the Paulandspiketeers discuss the most over-rated movie adaptations and the most under-rated adaptations, in "Over/Under".
