42. Face/Off

11/21/2019
More
JOHNSON/WEBB ... Yes, Rob and Chris lovingly smear their hands over each other's faces, as they discuss the 1997 head-exchange action classic FACE/OFF. This podcast is just under 1 hour long, so if you listen to it twice, you'll have enough time to eat a peach.

41. Killer Klowns From Outer Space (w. Fran Jolley)

10/29/2019
More
Our 3rd annual Halloween Special [insert spooky sound effect] has been made even more special by having a special guest: music journalist and patron of the very helpful Comedy Podcast Devotees site, Fran Jolley. He's chosen everyone's 2nd or 3rd favourite scary clown movie (or 4th if you include the 'It' mini-series) KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE, for us to enjoy. Rob and Chris had never seen this before, so there's plenty for us all to experience.

10/1/2019
More
If it's input you're after, then look no further. Rob & Chris are aliiiiiiive as we trundle back to 1986 and see how the robot right-to-life adventure SHORT CIRCUIT stands up. It's just a cute story about a charming robot and his boffin pals. Surely nothing offensive or problematic .... oh!

9/10/2019
More
As Roald Dahl Day rapidly approaches, we're doing exactly what we did last year and are each choosing an old episode of TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED. Bet you didn't see that coming! Rob has chosen the glove-heavy antics of LIGHT FINGERS, while Chris has opted to listen to spiders singing and flowers screaming in THE SOUND MACHINE.

38. The Fugitive

8/24/2019
More
We've unshackled our chains, shaved our beards off and applied vast quantities of Grecian 2000 to tackle the 1993 action movie adaptation of THE FUGITIVE. As well as the normal top-notch blather, Rob tells a disturbing tale from his past which reveals why he has such a connection to Dr Richard Kimble.

7/9/2019
More
The game's afoot, lemon entry, etc. It's time to see where it all began for little Sherlock and his chum Watson in the 1985 romp, YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES. Does it go down in a Silver Blaze of glory, or is it a big load of Reichenbach Falls? Why not find out for yourselves, listeners.

Duration:00:50:36

35. Yellowbeard

6/13/2019
More
We talk about the 1983 not-Python sea-fairing epic YELLOWBEARD to see if it's stood the test of time. Is it the epic comedic magnum opus of our time, or is it the Expendables of shit comedy? Tune in and find out. [WARNING: this episode was recorded in a heavy rainstorm, so there may be a bit of background noise. Sorry!]

34. The Tall Guy

5/23/2019
More
Take a deep breath, prepare for the worst, the laziest podcasters in the uniiveeeeeerse! Yes, we're back. Again. Sorry we're late. We hope our revisit of Richard Curtis' 1989 comedy THE TALL GUY will in some small way make up for it. Music kindly provided by The Sonic Jewels.

33. Class

4/10/2019
More
Rob has taken us back to 1983, where we visit the raunchy goings-on of Andrew McCarthy and Jacqueline Bissett in CLASS. Is it an 80's Graduate or a rehash of Animal House? Can't say. But there's a very young John Cusack hanging about, and that bloke who says "Darn it" in Speed. Our theme music is kindly provided by The Sonic Jewels.

32. Drop Dead Fred

3/17/2019
More
Everyone's favourite puerile kids' comedy about mental cruelty, manipulation and paranoid schizophrenia. Yes, it's the 1991 movie DROP DEAD FRED, starring Rik 'we love you Rik' Mayall and Phoebe 'which one of you bitches is my mother' Cates. Have fun, snot-faces!

31. Raising Arizona

2/21/2019
More
COENS ... CAGE ... COLETTA (Anne) ... COLLINS (Phil). Yes, Still Any Good is back - and this time it's personal. Well, it's the personal choice of one of our beloved listeners. Did we think that RAISING ARIZONA was a Coen classic, or just a big ol' pile of quirky baby-shit? Why not listen and find out.

2/7/2019
More
An episode once thought lost, has been found... Yup, it’s our incredibly overdue HOME ALONE episode. Sorry we’re late. Let’s hope that at this drab post-festive time of the year, listening to Rob & Chris banging on endlessly about a 28 year old kids’ film will give you all some much needed belated Christmas spirit.

29. White Men Can't Jump

12/17/2018
More
Summer's here and the time is right for getting a bouncy ball and trying to throw it into a little hoop with a net on it. We're heading back to 1992 to take a look at the Snipes/Harrelson/Perez b-ball hit WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP. Will it be a [insert basketball phrase], or just a load of [basketball term goes here]? Warning: podcast contains a squeaky chair and some remarkable Rosie Perez impersonations.

28. Spider-Man (1977 TV Pilot)

11/26/2018
More
As a tribute to the late Stan Lee, we've gone back to the first live-action adaptation of his work. If you don't include a cheap cameo in a weird kids' TV show. In the feature length pilot of what became THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, we really do see Peter Parker do whatever a spider can. But only if the spider in question wore massive collars on its shirt, live in a grotty attic, and keep trying to borrow $46 from everyone.

What happens when two masters of horror decide to work together? Well, when it's Stephen King and George A Romero, you get a zany anthology featuring Leslie Nielsen, a tiny Ted Danson, and an un-bald Ed Harris ... dancin'. Yes, get under the duvet, it's the 1982 horror comic CREEPSHOW. Music as ever is kindly provided by The Sonic Jewels.

In between discussions about developing an 80's style TV show called Caribbean Heat and learning Thom Yorke's favourite flavour of crisps, Rob and Chris manage to have a chat about James Cameron's debut blockbuster, PIRANHA II: THE SPAWNING. There's blood, death, nudie bits and a hell of a lot of flying grunions. Music as ever comes from The Sonic Jewels.

Get your cowboy hats on, start up the Trans-Am and get ready to talk a load of CB bollocks, good buddies! It's time to hear what Rob and Chris thought of the Burt Reynolds 1977 car chase blockbuster SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT.

9/27/2018
More
To celebrate International Roald Dahl Day - which was blimmin' ages ago - Rob and Chris have decided to look back at a couple of episodes of TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED. Bet you never saw that coming! Chris has opted for the deliciously fun LAMB TO THE SLAUGHTER, while Rob thought it would be more fun to upset everyone with the incredibly disturbing THE FLYPAPER. So get in a comfy fireside chair, put a funny tray-thing on your lap, and join us. Music kindly provided by The Sonic Jewels.
