Rewatchability is a comedic pop-culture nostalgia podcast hosted by J.M. McNab, Rob LaRonde, and Blain Watters. It is produced independently in Toronto, ON.

The show began in the summer of 2011. In 2012 it was profiled by The A.V. Club and in 2015 our podcast appeared on CBC Radio’s Podcast Playlist. The aim of the show is to re-watch movies and television shows from when we were younger, and review them in an interesting and hopefully humourous way. Hopefully.

Rewatchability contains coarse language and immature subject matter; our main goal is to be funny, so please don’t take anything too seriously… especially you Ghost Dad.

    COCOON

    COCOON

    Grab your swim trunks, we're going for a dip with COCOON! Directed by Ron Howard and starring the young and vivacious Wilford Brimley, as well as Hume Cronyn, Don Ameche, Jessica Tandy, Gwen Verdon and, yes, Steve Guttenberg, Cocoon tells the story of a group senior citizens who discover a fountain of youth in the neighbor's pool. Did we mention there's aliens? It's not just old people doing aqua-fitness for two hours, though that is a large part of it. 


    In our day, this movie was a bigger hit than Quaker Oatmeal, but how does it hold up to our aged eyes?

    TEAM AMERICA WORLD POLICE with Sina Rahmani

    TEAM AMERICA WORLD POLICE with Sina Rahmani

    It's the July 4th weekend, so you better believe we're celebrating America (f-yeah!) by riding along with TEAM AMERICA WORLD POLICE! Melding the crass humor of Trey Parker and Matt Stone with the grand artistic legacy of marionette, and just a dash of geopolitics for flavor, Team America attempted to deflate the Hollywood establishment while offering a antidote to a polarized political landscape. But do its crude satirical jabs still land? Or... wait, is that puppet going down on that other puppet?

    ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS

    ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS

    Hear ye, hear ye! For the wholesome entertainment of the publick, the bards of Rewatchability revisit the tale of ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS, a parodie penned by the great poet Mel Brooks, and presented by his men including Cary Elwes, Dave Chapelle, Richard Lewis, Amy Yasbeck,Tracy Ullman and all thine favorite thespians of stages comedick and dramtick. Witness the savage mocking of Kevin Costner, the silliness of the travelling mole and the tightiness of the quite-tight tights.


    But does this tale transport the joys of yesteryear to our aching ears? Is the poet's trade satire or silliness? Where can I get a chastity belt? All these queries and more will be unravelled!

    420- SISTER ACT

    420- SISTER ACT

    Hallelujah! On this blessed day we sit in communion with SISTER ACT! Starring Sister Mary Whoopi Goldberg as well as Sister Mary Kathy Najimi, not to forget Mother Sister Mary Dame Maggie Smith, this movie was a surprise hit for non-believers. Elevated by the uplifting musical performances (with sinfully delicious handclaps), this movie almost made us want to go to church. Almost. But how does it hold up today, in the year of our lord?

Jacovian ,

Hilarious trip down memory lane.

Hands down one of the most entertaining podcasts out there.
JM, Blain, and Rob have great chemistry, great interplay and wonderfully bad puns. They’ll make you laugh, but they’ll also make you think differently about the movies that you grew up with.
I’d recommend it with all my heart. The highlight of my week.
