    Annette and Frankie really found each other

    Surf’s up, beach partiers! If beach volleyball wasn’t enough for you, great! We’re going back to the beach with Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon. Summer may be wrapping up for us, but it was never ending in the Beach Party movies, which featured plenty of surfing, dancing, and repeating plot lines. How did these movies reflect teenage culture when they came out? What modern pop culture do these ‘60s movies remind us of? And how in the heck are Dean and Lindsay like these mid-century pop singers? Pack up your surfboard and favorite peanut butter sandwich, then come find out with us!

    There's a band of Huns re-enacting Top Gun

    There's a band of Huns re-enacting Top Gun

    We feel the need...the need for beach volleyball! We’re going back to the ‘80s again for a closer look at Top Gun, the fighter jet blockbuster that launched Tom Cruise to stardom. How does this movie compare with the real Top Gun in the Navy? What other pop culture has used this same pop culture ref? Why does all beach volleyball attire seem so uncomfortable? And why doesn’t Paris feel the need for beach volleyball? We do our best to answer all those questions and get the scoop on the long-awaited sequel, Top Gun: Maverick.


    Other pop culture we ref: The Outsiders, Footloose, Marathon Man, 30 Rock, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hot Shots!, Planes, Independence Day, Pearl Harbor, Hamilton, Transformers, A Few Good Men, Law & Order, Harry Potter, Airplane!, Serena Williams

    The brothers Grimm were over in the corner, yelling, "No way!"

    The brothers Grimm were over in the corner, yelling, "No way!"

    Who wrote The Frog Prince, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood? The Brothers Grimm! And who wrote a terrible letter telling Richard not to marry Emily? Perhaps someone even more terrifying! This ep takes a closer look at the fairy tales you probably grew up on, as well as the much more gruesome versions you probably didn’t. We talk a not-so-great movie with Matt Damon and Heath Ledger, our favorite fairy tales as kids, and why the Grimms would be shocked by a certain letter found in the Gilmores’ basement. Plus, a special fairy tale story reading courtesy of Kyla’s mom!


    Other pop culture we ref: Happy Days, Fame, Hogan’s Heroes, Pirates of the Caribbean, Shrek, Sydney White, Forrest Gump, Syriana, Brokeback Mountain, The Road to El Dorado, Hamilton

    It’s so Hogan’s Heroes!

    It’s so Hogan’s Heroes!

    If you liked World War II, you’ll love this episode! And if you love Lane’s cousin Christine, you’ll love her reference to Hogan’s Heroes, the ‘60s sitcom that was set in...a German prison camp? Believe it or not, this TV show was controversial for a second and a hit long after that. We talk about the real experiences of the cast during WWII, how this show translated to German audiences, and the most spacious floorboards imaginable—both in Hogan’s bunker and in Lane’s bedroom.


    Other pop culture we ref: The Donna Reed Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Kill Bill, The Love Boat, The Beatles, Schindler’s List, Spongebob Squarepants, The Sandlot

    Not that Brobdingnagian twit (Gulliver’s Travels)

    Not that Brobdingnagian twit (Gulliver’s Travels)

    Who wrote about giant wasps, talking horses, and eating babies? Paris Geller knows the answer! In this ep we’re trying to figure out what the hey “brobdingnagian” means—and how to say it. We cover the 1726 novel Gulliver’s Travels (where the word originated), as well as other words the same author invented, why this novel was controversial when it came out, and how the 2010 movie adaptation got Scarlett Johansson the role of Black Widow.


    Other pop culture we ref: Arthur, Animal Farm, Iron Man 2, Cats, Begin Again, The Devil Wears Prada, Pacific Rim, Alice in Wonderland

    Nothing wouldn't wear a leather jacket and pull off a convincing "Adrian!” would it? (Rocky)

    Nothing wouldn't wear a leather jacket and pull off a convincing "Adrian!” would it? (Rocky)

    Yo, Adrian! We’ve got on our leather jackets and filled our glasses full of raw eggs to talk about another Best Picture winner. We want to know why Lorelai thinks Jess Mariano is like Rocky Balboa, the classic sports underdog hero from a writer/director who lived out a Cinderella story. We talk about a bunch of sequels, a famous statue, and a dog named Butkus. And while we were trying to get “Gonna Fly” out of our heads, we also found some unexpected connections between the two actors playing the characters Lorelai is comparing.


    Other pop culture we ref: Citizen Kane, The Godfather, This Is Us, Matt Damon, Charlie Chaplin, Black Panther
