    Wild Mountain Thyme (w/Jason MacLeod)

    Wild Mountain Thyme (w/Jason MacLeod)

    Happy St. Patrick's Hangover Day!

    As is appropriate during a very Irish holiday, Nathan, Brendan and returning guest Jason MacLeod discussed a VERY Irish movie (with lots of non-Irish actors doing Irish accents) - last year's Wild Mountain Thyme. The guys discuss Christopher Walken's Irish accent, Emily Blunt's reaction to a kiss, the absolutely insane nonsensical left-field ending and much more! So kiss the blarney stone, down a glass of fine whiskey and swat at the sky with an oar - it's thyme for fun!

Fun listen

If you’ve ever watched a movie and scratched your head in wonderment trying to figure out who gave it the green light, then this is the podcast for you. Great show!

BrianWayne5280 ,

The perfect balance

This is really the ultimate movie podcast for bad movies. These guys have great chemistry and deliver insightful and deep rundowns of not so great movies while keeping my attention with consistent laughs and wit. I love this show.

Gaming Casual Sedg ,

The show that answers the question. What were they thinking?

An awesome show where great hosts talk about all of the terrible movies. Well worth the listen if you are curious about a film or if you just love bad movies in general. - GC Sedg
