What would you score this week's show, on a scale of one to... say... ten thousand? I'd rate it pretty high. Really high. In fact, I'd score it OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAND!!!
0:00:00 - It's official, Paul has officially dumped Miller Lite for Yuengling, which is making his evening better right from the get-go. But as for referring to it as a "lager"... Spike has a cultural problem with associating a "lager" with his elite group of friends.
0:04:18 - Politics. That's all I'm sayin'. Are protesters getting more violent? Is racism behind the teabaggers? Is the so-called Obamacare exactly the same as Romneycare? And furthermore, "Hussein". We all know what that means, don't we?
0:24:42 - Imagine the week's news collided with a tea party meeting. What would you get? Pickin' And Grinnin'. Probably.
0:26:50 - Paul's been enjoying the TPASS playlist that we put together for show 208, where The Boys, the Commentariat and Bluetone Mark Morriss decided on their desert isla... wait... 'remote location of indeterminate terrain' discs. Only one entry on the Ebert list crossed off, but it counts for three movies of two hours each in the form of "The Apu Trilogy". And what's better than "Toy Story" on bluray? How about "Toy Story" on bluray IN THE RIGHT-SIZED CASE? Also, at the risk of alienating the 99% of the audience who hates it when the show talks about video games, Paul's been diggin' "Puzzle Quest: Challenge Of The Warlords" on the PSP.
0:47:30 - Poor Spike got let down by Cat "hello, my name is Youself Islam, you offended my holy father, prepare to die" Stevens' lies over what was said and not said via a documentary about Salman Rushdie's controversial book "The Satanic Verses". Did you know that Australia (Australia!!) had a vast archive of exploitation movies made in from the 60s to the 80s? Us either, but thanks to "Not Quite Hollywood", Spike's been educated. Or Ozducated. Or something. Plus, he now knows how to train his dragon. In 3D.
1:09:09 - This week's Over/Under concerns animated movies. The Boys and the Commentariat share their most over-rated and most under-rated animated movies, including several voted for "Titan AE", "The Iron Giant" and... "Titanic"? How many votes did they get in total? Over NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAND!!! (whatninethousand??)
Thanks for listening to the show. We mean it. You are all awesome. Especially you.
