Are you a grown-up who grew up in the TV Generation? You're in the right place! Hindsight is Horrifying is THE show for the TV Generation!
Hindsight is Horrifying is the podcast where two allegedly grown-up (and certainly somewhat cynical) hosts mine the TV shows and movies of our youth for the "grown-up" humor we just didn't get as kids.
At least that's the idea. We also do a lot of talking about movies and TV shows in general, and sometimes we even make sense!
Recorded in Alpharetta, Georgia, Hindsight is Horrifying is the show to check out if you grew up on TV and ended up just a bit cynical.

    Burt Reynolds is the Sexiest Cop in Atlanta! In 1981. Sharky's Machine!

    Burt Reynolds is the Sexiest Cop in Atlanta! In 1981. Sharky's Machine!

    There’s this call girl. She’s got a bad rap, see? She’s stuck with a murderous john who owns all the hookers in Atlanta; he puts her up in a nice penthouse with fabulous clothes and all the dance classes she could ask for. It’s up to a ruggedly handsome vice cop to rescue her and give her the run-down home of her dreams in a ghetto part of the city so they can live happily ever after next to a playground of noisy ass kids. This dream house may not have a bed with a frame, but it has a lovely window seat with a rose carving, perfect for peeping on the local children at play.
    Now that we think about it, Sharky’s Machine may be the literal opposite story of Pretty Woman. This rendition of Dirty Harry Goes to Atlanta is a drama-packed, vice-ridden tale of Burt Reynolds (quasi-legally) stalking and sometimes slapping a hooker with whom he falls in love from afar. Don’t worry, he’s still focused on cleaning up the city streets. He might lose a few fingers in the process, but good ol’ Sharky will see to it that we ATLiens can enjoy our city without the worry of those awful out-of-staters.
    Join Darth, Adam, and Jason for the mustache ride that is Sharky’s Machine.

    Bill Murray is in the Army now! It's "Stripes" (1981)!

    Bill Murray is in the Army now! It's "Stripes" (1981)!

    Oh, my GOD, Mr. Cotter, I want YOU!
    What if Cheech and Chong joined the army? We’ll never know for sure, but Stripes gives us a close enough idea when Bill Murray talks Harold Ramis into becoming a grunt in this 80s comedy. John and Russell join the army, mud-wrestling shenanigans ensue, and our would-be heroes get the girls, but can they protect America’s newest super-weapon/shaggin’ wagon? Probably not, but it hardly matters when your main goal in life is to be the sharpest loofah in your platoon ever to graduate basic training. 
    Sound off for Stripes!

    Matt Damon & The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Italian Vacation

    Matt Damon & The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Italian Vacation

    Not all of us can travel abroad during our college years. Some of us can’t afford college or travel and are subsequently forced to fantasize about that magnificent day when a random, white-collar gentleman will offer us $1000 to travel to Italy to locate and return his wayward, womanizing son.
    Matt Damon lucks out in the extreme in this story; he is literally paid to visit a fictional town in Italy to locate Jude Law and bring him home to America to fulfill his destiny as a shipping heir. Sadly, things get murder-y quickly when same sex tendencies and bitter jealousy arise amidst the gin and the jazz.
    Murder begets more murder in The Talented Mr. Ripley, a film that raises deeply philosophical questions that keep us up at night: Do the ends justify the means? Can anyone truly be a “bad” person? Is Matt Damon prettier than Gwyneth Paltrow?
    Decide for yourself as you experience the criminal misadventures of the talented, treacherous, and tormented Tom Ripley.

    The best Chevy Chase movie ever? It's Fletch on Hindsight is Horrifying

    The best Chevy Chase movie ever? It's Fletch on Hindsight is Horrifying

    Danger is around every corner when you’re an “anonymous” journalist with a drug beat and alimony to pay. Luckily, Fletch, known as Jane Doe to his readers (we assume he has some, but no one ever confirms this fact) is mediocre at disguise and masterful at confusing his targets with jibber jabber.
    Fletch finds himself in the crosshairs when he’s asked to commit murder by a mysterious rich Mormon who mistakes him for one of his many alter egos; I mean, who wouldn’t trust thousands of dollars and a carefully coordinated murder plot to a drug-addled beach bum? There’s a foxy blonde, an angry Doberman, and Geena Davis has a dude’s name. It’s funny and confuddling. It’s Fletch.

    The second worst Dan Aykroyd movie ever?

    The second worst Dan Aykroyd movie ever?

    Holy hairpiece, Jason Alexander! 
    Oh yes, it's George AND Kramer from Seinfeld, along with Dan Aykroyd and just about everyone else who made an appearance on SNL in the late 80s and early 90s. 
    When a failed recon mission strands him and his wife on Earth, what is an extraterrestrial to do other than make a half-assed attempt to blend in with the neighbors? Beldar and Prymaat make the best of their suburban purgatory while raising their daughter who possesses the wildly rebellious tendency to date an overweight underachiever. 
    This ridiculous 90s comedy didn't make money or history, but it doesn't matter. As far as Lorne Michaels is concerned, you can shove it up your cone.

An Amusing Romp

An amusing romp through Millennials' childhood classic films, with plenty of snark along the way. If you're up for a laugh, this is always good for one.

Badam Arown ,

I wanna go back...

And do it all over, but I can’t go back, I know...

If you love to reminisce about classic movies, then your Hindsight May Be Horrifying too…. From Shakespeare to Shivers…Darth Jader and Jason know how to pick em’. No topic is off limits as they dissect your favorite oldie but goody. Before you listen and glimpse the twisted minds of these two (and their guests) be sure to alert your therapist…

Youthful Adam ,

Young Adam loves this show!

I have loved being a guest on this show! Nothing beats drinking a cold one and talking about a movie I love. It’s perfect for a movie nerd like me! You never know where the conversation is going to go with the goofy tangents but the film is also discussed from beginning to end since it is played in the studio. I love trying to impersonate a character from the movie whether it’s Pennywise the clown or Arnold Schwarzenegger. My favorite one was the Jingle All the Way episode for Christmas because my girlfriend joined as a guest and all 4 of us had so much to say about it. I look forward to the upcoming all Adam episode and doing some more crazy movies in the future. I also look forward to choosing some messed up horror flicks to get under Darth Jader’s skin.
