    Episode 41 - Airborne (1993)

    Episode 41 - Airborne (1993)

    Hey, Bra! Filmshake is poised to become the most popular podcast on Earth by taking to the sky! ...or by covering the highly underrated, should-be beloved rollerblading teen dramedy, 1993's Airborne. Can the skateboarding Jordan "rollerblades are lame" Courtney find acceptance in his heart for a movie about in-line skating? Does Nic really think that a movie featuring an "I'm Too Sexy" wardrobe montage ends with one of the greatest action scenes of the 90's? Well, we kind of gave that away in the third sentence.
    Also, we kick off the show with the non-punishment film, 1989's Gleaming the Cube, to make sure that skateboarding gets some representation too. Man wasn't meant to fly, but Filmshake was!

    Episode 40 - Batman Returns (1992)

    Episode 40 - Batman Returns (1992)

    Merry Christmas/Happy Hanukkah/Blessed non-religious secular holiday celebration! Our gift to you is a two-hour long Batman Returns episode! What present could be better than the ultimate Filmshake experience, where Nic essentially equates a 1992 film where the lead character dresses like a bat and another dresses in a leather catsuit with the best works of Fritz Lang, while Jordan points out that the vast majority of that film's dialogue revolves around genitalia. Are you in the mood for Nic to once again bring the holidays down with talks of depression and bleak darkness? Can Jordan ever get him to stop talking? You've got to listen to the most Filmshake episode of Filmshake ever!
    Also, we talk for a few moments about 1990's Captain America, which...isn't as good as Tim Burton's Batman Returns...or most movies. And last but not least, we're joined by another special guest for the episode-ending trivia battle. It's gonna be a hot time on the cold town tonight...and we do have a dark side.

    Episode 39 - Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)

    Episode 39 - Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)

    Stardate...2021...Jordan Courtney and Nicholas Loup watch 1991's...Star Trek VI...The Undiscovered Country. One of the two is a  Trekkie, but the other...just...doesn't...care. Beam yourself up to some classic Filmshake goodness, even if you don't know the difference between a Klingon and a Klingoff,
    Also, set phasers to soft, gauzy lighting because the punishment movie to kick off this episode is 1996's Anna Nicole Smith-starring Skyscraper. We thought this would just be a stupid, goofy Die Hard ripoff, and it is, but it's also a softcore pornography. There's nothing softcore about this episode's trivia battle though, as Nic boldy asks trivia questions no man (or...anyone) would know the answers to. The Prime Directive dictates you warp ten this episode into your ears. Engage!

    Episode 38 - Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)

    Episode 38 - Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)

    Here's the sitch: this episode, Filmshake's covering 1992's Buffy the Vampire Slayer...the movie, not the TV show, NIC!
    To kick things off, Nic reports on his punishment film, the 1993 Cory Haim comedy Just One of the Girls, where Haim dresses up like a cheerleader to evade his high school bullies. We then naturally segue into more cheerleading and back to some bloodsucking with Buffy. Listen, as Jordan chides Nic continually for talking about the TV show and not the movie, while Nic can't quite escape the looming spectre of Joss Whedon. Meanwhile, Jordan connects with Buffy and their shared interest in a certain celebrity heartthrob. Capping it off with their usual trivia battle, Nic seethes with a vampiric vengeance for his loss to the cryptkeeper last time. Can Jordan prevail against such diabolical rage? Especially having never seen two 80's sci-fi staples? Find out on Filmshake! We're Pert, Wholesome, and Way Lethal!

Incredible

The Cryptkeeper / Arliss Loveless trivia challenge I just heard in their Tales from the Crypt episode was so cringy and went on forever and I couldn’t stop laughing. They knew it wasn’t working and wanted to bail on it but they were both too stubborn to quit and it was wonderful.

This show is amazing. I love that you make fun of cruel intentions! It is my friend Wesley Jones favorite podcast episode ever! I wish you did more Will Smith movie post 2000! Maybe a little failed contest ammo! Keep doing what you guys are doing love the show!
