    Episode 9: Episode 9: Breaking Away

    QIF's first season comes to a close with the first truly Quaidy property on the man's c.v. -- 1979's Breaking Away, a minor classic I had trouble reviewing, because I've seen it so many times, it's like a family member. Old friends, new beginnings, the correct pronunciation of "REFUND?!", and the M and LVPs of Season 1 in an all-new Quaid In Full. Fill an ashtray with cat food and have a listen!

    Episode 8: Episode 8: Amateur Night At The Dixie Bar And Grill

    It's another TV movie as we enter the homestretch of QIF's first season: Amateur Night At The Dixie Bar And Grill, a surprisingly watchable Nashville knockoff starring not just Dennis Quaid but Don Johnson, Pinky Tuscadero, Isaiah Edwards from Little House, and...Kyle Richards? Come for Tanya Tucker's debut, stay for the Quaid tunesmithery in Episode 8.

    Episode 7: Episode 7: Are You In The House Alone?

    A uninteresting and deeply problematic TV movie with a horror-movie shell and an Afterschool Special center, Are You In The House Alone? introduces me to the concept of the Un-Quaidy Valley -- and introduces the rest of the world to David Keith. Schoolyard doowop, a brawl in an art-supplies closet, a visit to the Oversight Committee on the occasion of Mr. Quaid's engagement, and more!

    Episode 6: Episode 6: The Seniors

    Time Out London called it a "satire of sorts" -- but what exactly is college-sex-clinic proto-Risky Business romp The Seniors satirizing -- capitalism? women's lib? shaggin' wagons? What it's not doing is holding my interest very well, but if you'd like to consume a parade of naked breasts AND rockin' late-seventies boot style, this is the forgotten flick for you. I would tell you to grab a six-pack, but Dennis Quaid's got that covered, bless his heart.


    Quality: 1.5
    Quaidity: 4.5

    Episode 5: Episode 5: Our Winning Season

    Quaid returns to period pieces in Our Winning Season, not that you'd necessarily know from the production. This failed attempt to combine a Porky's-esque sex farce with a high-school-sports roman a clef AND the blight of Vietnam isn't so much bad as airless and dull, and on top of that, it's both not very Quaidy and TOO Quaidy somehow. Tonal whiplash and fern-bar soundtrack cues: it's Episode 5!

    Episode 4: Episode 4: Baretta S04E04, "The Sky Is Falling"

    It's the most expensive, least worth-it Baretta episode in history: Season 4, Episode 4, "The Sky Is Falling," which stars Barry Miller as a beset teenage prostitute, Dennis Quaid as his pimp, and a lot of '70s ideas about who's considered a victim. Oh, and an uneven distribution of AAAAACKTING! that may shortchange Dennis Quaid. Television curator at the Paley Center David Bushman joins me to discuss bad '70s pacing, ideal casting for Quaid, whether such a dark role on episodic TV could have hurt Quaid's career, and more.

Chucojen ,

This is why i am a fan of SDB

I thought it would just be fun and funny. But SDB does it again and makes thoughtful and intelligent commentary that has me seeing culture and pop culture in a new light. Always delightful, always insightful - thanks for this gem of a niche podcast!

Errantfishy ,

delightful!

I’m loving sarah’s reviews so far and I cant wait to get to properties where Dennis Quaid is in a starring role (very excited for Enemy Mine eventually). The episodes are also very breezy and thoughtful

bikebmoreb ,

Breathlessly Anticipating The Quaid!

Can’t wait for SDB’s take on my favorite man in the world. Match made in podcast heaven.
