Episode 130: 90’s-Now Sitcoms

Remember all those episodes ago when we covered our favourite 70’s and 80’s sitcoms? Yeah, neither do we (it was so long ago!). However, due to a listener request and the fact we did promise a follow-up, we’ve decided to each pick our five top choices for comedy television shows spanning from 1990 to present day.

What kinds of picks will we have? Why is Chris seemingly obsessed with workplace or teen themed sitcoms? Why does Josh have an affinity for savoring his television shows like fine wine? For answers to this, and more, you’ll just have to listen blah.

As always we begin by talking about what we’ve watched and it includes an unexpected duo of Italian “Poliziotteschi” films that both feature Ivan Rassimov, Josh checks out the 2019 version of PET SEMATARY, Laverne & Shirley’s Cindy Williams going undercover as a hooker, the Shaw Brothers craziness of THE OILY MANIAC, a duo of teen themed TV movies that just don’t deliver the goods, Josh discovers a top-notch 70’s gangster film during his VHS adventure, a tangent about (among other things) Sears catalogs and so much more!

Episode 129: Future Passed

Inspired by the fact that 1982’s Blade Runner was set in 2019 and it now officially the “past”. We’ve decided to look at movies that were futuristic at the time of release and are now outdated. How accurate were they on predicting the future? How much technology is incorrect? Just why the Hell are there so many apocalyptic gangs?

First up we talk about what we’ve been watching as Josh finally finishes his awful HELLRAISER journey, we both watched Jesse “The Body” Ventura stink up the place in a low-budget Canadian sci-fi flick, Anthony Edwards and Lance Henriksen team-up to fight crime, Josh gets to PAINT IT BLACK, Chris gives his take on 1917 and so much more!
