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 96: TV Party

Growing up through the 70’s and 80’s was a glorious time. We know they currently are proclaiming the Netflix era as “the golden age of TV” but we really beg to differ as, when we were kids, every single week on all three of the big networks we were able to tune in and see a brand new movie starring some of the most recognizable faces in pop culture.

For this episode we’ve both picked five TV movies that we think you should definitely try to track down. We’ve got teenage hitchhikers, nuclear annihilation, high drama, killer bees, a reanimated scarecrow and so much more! Plus we may have ended up going on a few rants here and there.
