Generation X is back to whine about their lost youth and the movies they loved in the 80s that turn out to be surprisingly problematic by today's standards.
2018 became so problematic that this podcast seemed superfluous for a while. Who can save humanity? Only the king of the impossible, or rather the Queen. Following the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, David McCreath returns to re-record the lost Flash Gordon episode and revisit the gloriously unselfconscious satin-packed finale of the 70s, before a new era of more cynical excess begins.
Steamy teen sex in a steel mill town over an amazing new wave soundtrack. Kio Stark brings this hidden gem of the early mid-80s to our attention. Aidan Quinn makes his screen debut as a rebel on a motorcycle who catches the eye of good-girl cheerleader Tracey. Mild violence and sexual situations ensure. You'll never think about career day the same again.
St. Elmo's Fire
What's the opposite of friends with benefits? Kristina Halvorson revisits her feelings for the worst people in the world, but mostly for Andrew McCarthy. Nothing about this is OK.
Pretty in Pink
Matt Haughey flips the first pancake. We talk about clothes, and cars, and coke, so much coke for a movie about going to the prom. The levels are all over the place as we reacquaint ourselves with the modern art of sound editing.

Where did it go
I love this podcast but am saddened that at the time of this writing there are only 4 episodes. Thank you for the four we have, but Please come back and give more of your voices. I really appreciate your perspectives and have not heard similar takes out here on the wider internet.
Give me a break
Brett Kavanaugh, highly educated, highly responsible, basketball coach father of 2 is the worst human being and the drug/AIDS addled idiot Freddie Mercury is the greatest human being who ever lived, lady you need your head examined.
Like drinking with friends
This is lots of fun, like hanging out with friends and rehashing just how horrible pop culture messages were in your youth but with much better quality drinks. Looking forward to the nightmare that is 16 Candles, and possibly The Outsiders.
