    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - Episode 0146

    National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - Episode 0146

    National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation: “We’re at the Threshold of HELL!”
    #Hindsighters, Darth and Jason realize that you are mourning the ending of the first HIH season. Luckily, for all of you already missing the holidays, your favorite podcasters are going out with a Christmas classic in January. Better yet, they are accompanied by awesome returning guest, Morgan!
    This film is arguably one of the most hilarious and relatable Christmas movies in all of cinema history. Christmas Vacation teaches us the valuable lesson that having relatives over for a month-long visit would quickly devolve into The Hunger Games, especially if Katherine burns the turkey again. 
    In all seriousness, when Count Rugen’s brother and bitchy Elane Benes are your uptight, yuppie neighbors, adding relatives like Cousin Eddie to equation can make the Christmas season a stressful one to endure.
    The best way to survive such a season is to follow this sage holiday advice:

    Be sure to constantly chug egg nog out of moosen cups from Wally World.NEVER hang a realistic Clark Griswold from the side of your house; an idiot will call the cops.If you’re a plastic, light-up Santa and reindeer set, avoid the Griswold home at all costs.
    Jason would argue that Santa could regenerate himself and his reindeer as the supernatural being of Christmas Vacation, but Darth doesn’t want to go there.
    Hindsighters, our final thought from this Christmas season is this: Go full Griswold with your Christmas dreams. If you shoot for the moon, you might land in a backyard pool.
    Darth and Jason would also like to thank each and every one of their listeners for making this such a successful first year of #HindsightIsHorrifying. Your continued listenership and support mean the world to us, and we could not be more grateful.
    And before they get uppity, Darth and Jason would also like to sincerely thank each guest who has helped make these podcast episodes so special and fun. It has been a fantastic 2019, and the trolls best watch out, because 2020 is only going to be better and brighter. This is Hindsight, and good night.

    Jingle All The Way - Episode 0145

    Jingle All The Way - Episode 0145

    Jingle All the Way: “It’s Turbo Time!”
    Adam Darby is back to make Darth and Jason feel as old as possible. Young Adam was FOUR in 1996, you guys (he totally missed the Olympics in Atlanta). But he made up for his glaringly young age with his killer Arnold impressions. He is accompanied by his delightful girlfriend, Alyssa, who is not a policeman. She’s a PRINCESS!
    In this particular film, you witness Tickle Me Elmo culture at its absolute worst. The lesson gleaned from this Christmas movie is that, if you don’t get your kid a toy for Christmas, he will become Darth Methamphetamine. Also, your postman will threaten to blow up a radio DJ. So get your kid that special toy they want; Polly Pocket might be a choking hazard, but not in a David Carradine kind of way.
    Jingle All the Way displays the typical 90s trope of terrible dads attempting to make up their bad behavior in extreme ways. #Hindsighters, NEVER miss your kid’s karate concert; you’ll never hear the end of it and Phil Hartman WILL try to eat your wife’s cookies.
    On this podcast for the TV Generation, we never look back on our childhoods with cynicism, just friendly advice:

    If you want to nail your neighbor’s wife, don’t forget to train your pet reindeer to attack said neighbor.Booster is the Dane Cook of the Turbo Man universe.“If you wanna get your cat drunk … do it responsibly.” – Jason MitchellVirtual Flashing is a thing, and fellas, we women are here to tell you that we don’t want unsolicited pictures of your junk.
    #Hindsighters, this has been a fabulous Christmas season. Your favorite podcasters have thoroughly enjoyed ruining your most beloved Christmas films and have to warn you that there is only one more #HIH episode for the next few weeks. Enjoy listening to Darth and Jason while they are wild and unchecked, because 2020 will be a rude awakening with many changes to come (phrasing, first, BOOM!).

    Home Alone - Episode 0144

    Home Alone - Episode 0144

    Home Alone: “You Guys Give Up, or Are You Thirsty for More?”
    In case you wonder why you suddenly can’t hear him, Jason had to abandon his own podcast (McCallister style) mid-episode. He doesn’t give two figs about you listeners. Luckily, Cece and Darth plugged along just fine without him. Jason’s disappearance may actually be a mercy in this case, because he starts the episode by having a stroke on the sound board. Just consider it an upgrade, #Hindsighters, because who WOULDN’T trade in #OldManJason for two beautiful ladies?
    According to Cece, Home Alone is the ultimate comfort movie, whether you’re having a bad day, or simply being tried for murder. Either way, no amount of stress warrants banishing your 8-year-old to an unfinished attic, whether or not said attic has lighting.
    On that note, #Hindsighters, Home Alone teaches us that when you do get locked in the attic for the night and subsequently wish your family out of existence, your anti-Wet Bandit game had better be strong when that wish comes true.
    This isn’t to say that Darth and Jason don’t root for the Wet Bandits (who are cartoonishly impervious to pain) when they watch Home Alone. Your favorite podcasters realize and love the fact that a large portion of their fan base is compiled of badass criminals and their pet kangaroos. #Australia
    Speaking of criminals, let’s all take a Christmas moment to empathize with Macaulay Culkin. The guy could use a break. His parents sucked, Michael Jackson “never” molested him, and Joe Pesci bit the poor kid’s finger so hard that he left a scar. To top it all, his fictional mother abandoned her bebe at Christmas! Your podcasters are honestly convinced that Buzz took better care of his spider than the McCallisters took care of Kevin. What the hell, Hollywoo?!?!?
    On a different note altogether, #Hindsighters, while it is normally Jason boring your darling Darth Jader with conspiracy theories, Darth has to wonder if Mrs. McCallister purposely abandoned her child at Christmas in order for him to recognize his self-sufficiency. Think about it. That little kid does laundry better than most grown-ass men.
    This possibility and Kevin’s insane skills at home security make your favorite podcasters yearn for a remake of Home Alone where Kevin is an integral team member to the Hans Gruber gang; John McClane won’t stand a chance. THERE’S YOUR CHRISTMAS MOVIE.
    #Hindsigthers, Darth and Jason are thoroughly enjoying ruining some of your childhood favorites this holiday season. So stock up on tarantulas, paint cans, and red-hot branding irons, because this Christmas party is just getting started.

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) - Episode 0143

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) - Episode 0143

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas. *The one with Jim Carrey*
    In a magical world that exists on a snowflake…Cindy Lou Who is an antagonist! WHO knew? We’ll see ourselves out…
    This week, Darth and Jason welcome brand new (and unsuspecting) guest, Alli, to discuss How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
    Hindsighters, this episode forces Darth and Jason to ask … WHY HE GOTTA BE A GREEN GRINCH?!? The Whos might be impervious to gravity and concrete, but greenism still hurts.
    Your favorite podcasters may never be able to solve the mystery of unsolicited racism in a children’s Christmas movie, but they cannot rest until they determine whether yak hair costumes merit torture training. Can someone get Sarah Jessica Parker on the phone? She would know.
    #Hindsighters, you’ve got to love it when a 30 minute Christmas classic transforms into a 2 hour feature film with jokes about key parties and cuckolding. Sometimes, Hindsight ruins a childhood. Regardless, if you’re Jason’s neighbor, you’re certainly a sex offender, but only on Halloween.
    Darth and Jason would love to distract you from this ugly Halloween truth with some lessons from life and this super “wholesome” movie:

    Star Wars is all about perspective and carefully accepted delusion.The Grinch would have LOVED Hans Gruber.Cancelling plans that you made with yourself is unacceptable.
    The real lesson is that we all grew up to be the Grinch. The good news is that none of us grew up to be Mike Myers in Cat in the Hat … except for Darth and Jason’s trolls. Your most hated podcasters will pray for you.

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.
