    "I Don't Need You Anymore" - #1 Pop Singles Of The 90s

    The Billboard charts of the 90s watched America go through a diverse range of musical moods, from mourning the death of British royals to celebrating barely-contained boners on the dancefloor - plus more Costner than a decade could hold.

    "Let Me Hear Your Body Talk" - #1 Pop Singles Of The 80s

    Put on your best aerobics attire and join us as we whisper carelessly about the #1 Pop Singles of the 1980s - the ones we still have plenty of “Faith” in, those we’re desperate to “Look Away” from, and everything in between.

    “Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.” - The Fly

    “Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.” - The Fly

    We’ve been afraid… VERY afraid… for most of 2020. And to kiss off the year the way it deserves, we’re buzzing about another horror maestro’s take on 50s sci-fi: David Cronenberg’s THE FLY remake.

    “The Chameleon Strikes In The Dark” - The Thing

    We’re celebrating the holidays a little differently for 2020 by revisiting John Carpenter's horror staple THE THING. Zip up your parka, secure your blood bags, and prepare for a not-so-silent night: this story of immaculate reproduction isn’t so blessed.

    "In the End It's All Nice" - Requiem For A Dream

    "In the End It's All Nice" - Requiem For A Dream

    As if 2020 couldn't get any more depressing, we sat down to rewatch Darren Aronofsky's "REQUIEM FOR A DREAM" for our latest episode. Is this acclaimed film about drug addiction just as traumatizing to watch today as it was back in the year 2000?

    “You’re The Moron That’s Been Invading My Turf?” - Hackers

    In cyberspace, there is no right or wrong… there’s only fun and boring! At least, that’s what 1995’s techsploitation thriller HACKERS would have you believe in Part 2 of our "net-trospective."

Just Delightful

Hi Gang,
Just started listening to this gem. I was in my 20’s and 30’s when all these movies, TV shows and music came out but I love revisiting them through your eyes.

I love the way you play off each other. I can’t believe the amount of research you all do. I love your humor. You are the best.

If I had the time I would binge listen to the three of you for hours. Keep making these. Absolutely love them.

Sincerely,
Jenetta M.

I Love it as much as Kel loved Orange soda

Hi Guy,

Huge fans here, I was born and grew up and England so there are a few episode that went over my head as we didn’t get them there but even they were enjoyable. I now live in Boston MA and my parents blame me loving on watching so many American TV show and movies growing up

The TV and Film geek in me gets so excited when a new episode come out, I especially loved the Jurassic Park episode (I have seen all 5 movies opening day) Scream, saved by the bell, back to the future

Even though sometimes your opinions drive me crazy I still love you guys, back to the future and ace Ventura come to mind

I would love to see a freaks and geeks episode

Thanks

Paul Quinn
