    #13 Unearned Triumphs

    #13 Unearned Triumphs

    The final episode of season one, and what a triumph it is (it's not)! Season two will be released in bulk in 2021 - it'll be like buying a bag of lighters from a market and finding out that none of them work.

    Spoiler Alert for a 2017 film! The name of the film can be found after the Instagram and Pinterest bit below, hidden away just in case you didn't want a spoiler for this episode (yeah right).

    #10 CGI

    Spoiler alert for a 2019 Netflix production. Scroll down for the title.

    We’ve deliberately made this episode an absolute mess to match the on-screen antics of our nominees. Definitely deliberate. It’s only a short one, though, so you won’t have to endure it for too long. Back to our standard slick professionalism in the next episode.

    #09 Annoying Characters

    No, neither of us have been nominated - our places are already secure. The same goes for Jar Jar Binks. We’ve tried to be a bit creative with our selections, though admittedly some are pretty obvious. We hope they annoy you, too. In a good way.

    #08 TV Shows That Outstayed Their Welcome

    #08 TV Shows That Outstayed Their Welcome

    This week’s episode is a lament to great TV shows that lived long enough to see themselves become garbage. Apologies if it makes you cry. 
    Two recent shows are discussed, but neither are spoiled. Promise.

Super entertaining! The Hosts make it happen!

Listened to “Fictional Heroes”. Great intro and announcer. Liked the jingle, got me in the mood for a laugh. I love how you are able to blend in movie scenes seamlessly while narrating. Really nice touch. Love the back and forth banter between you two. Very entertaining! Found myself agreeing with most of your choices. Especially Ned Stark from “Game of Thrones”.

Really enjoyed the breakdowns of why each character failed. My favorite person you listed was James Bond. Love how you pointed out the obvious flaws in his apparent heroism. He is definitely a terrible spy and a psychopathic killer.

This podcast is fun! Had me reliving moments from old movies and TV Shows. Felt like I was watching them and laughing all over again. Excited to hear more from you two.

Nice selections! Recommend this to anyone who enjoys roasting popular films, shows and even books. Definitely a great time and a great listen.

Excellent

This show is very interesting and entertaining! I like how it is very different than most shows and has its own personality. The hosts are excellent and engaging. I look forward to listening to more!
