Now We Know
13. Metal Gear Solid
Chris successfully convinces Kevin to delve into a murky world of conspiracy theories, psycho-sexually motivated cowboys, cyborg ninjas, nuclear-armed bipedal battle tanks, and the Super Baby Method.
12. Star Wars: The NPR Radio Drama
Did you know that NPR created a radio drama of the original Star Wars trilogy, complete with the vocal talents of one Mark Hamill? It's true! Join Kevin and Chris on a warm, cozy auditory jaunt through the worlds of Tatooine, Alderaan, and the decks of the Tantive IV.
11. Problem Child 2
This time, Seth Millstein ― of Now We Know intro and outro theme fame ― joins Kevin and Chris for a revisiting of Problem Child 2, in which the entire plot hinges on John Ritter being the most undeniably sexually attractive man on Earth.
10. The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T
This time, Chris plucks a peculiar children's film out of the fog of 1953: The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T, the first and only movie written by Dr. Seuss! Includes tyrannical piano teachers, upbeat musical numbers, unsettling descriptions of torture implements, and a surprising number of extremely direct Simpsons influences.
9. Captain America (1990)
Are you excited for Avengers: Infinity War? If so, you better get familiar with 1990's Captain America first, because the two films are chronologically canonical, and the new one won't make any sense otherwise! Kevin revisits a childhood classic, and Chris is inescapably along for the ride.
8. Wisconsin Death Trip
Chris and Kevin dip into a haunting, lilting tide of morbidity, depression, murder, suicide, and cocaine-fueled (or possibly alleviated?) window smashing with 1999's Wisconsin Death Trip. Also: a really ripping recipe for sheepshead stew.
7. Star Trek VCR Board Game Bonus Episode!
Feast your ears on the raw, unadulterated audio of Kevin, Chris, and Jason playing Star Trek: The Next Generation VCR Board Game: A Klingon Challenge, the scintillating subject of last week's episode! Bij included.
6. Star Trek: The VCR Board Game
Kevin brought a board game, a VHS tape filled with Klingon insults and guest 'caster Jason Rudy to us this time. The board game? The punchily-titled Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Interactive VCR Board Game: A Klingon Challenge. Get ready to experience bij (that's punishment in Klingon) along with us!
5. Sonic Adventure
This week, guest star Evan Tognotti presents Sonic Adventure, Sega's disastrous 1998 response to Nintendo's Super Mario 64. Together, Evan, Kevin, and Chris braved Sonic's strange and meandering tale, and came out on the other side with some pointed thoughts.
4. Consuming Passions
This time, Chris serves up a feast of cannibalistic chocolate decadence with 1988's Consuming Passions. Written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones of Monty Python fame, and starring Jonathon Pryce and Vanessa Redgrave. (Don't be fooled by the pedigree.)
