These Guys are Bonkers

I'm baffled at how much I love this podcast. Dan and Jon's recaps of the original movies are so rich with sentiment I started getting flashbacks of the tracking lines on the VHS copy I watched as a kid. But they don't leave it as a recap podcast; they go the extra mile to fantasize about bringing the properties into the present. Dan's memory for where he was when he first saw each movie is upsetting and Jon's ability to thoughtfully cast imaginary reboots and remakes is uncanny. I listen intently every week to see where they'll take the next property. This podcast is thoughtful and fun. I'm a listener for life.

Great Podcast!

These guys know more about my childhood than I do! I really enjoy hearing Dan and Jon’s take on the films they discuss. And their ideas for remakes, sequels, and prequels are very entertaining!
