After spending some time to brush up on etiquette and update their wardrobes, Rob & Jim are finally ready to make their debut into Society. First they dine, then they discuss proper filmic bookending techniques, when it’s appropriate to send a telegram as a punchline to a joke about sending a telegram, and the true origin of the name ‘Screaming Mad George.’ Also, a bunch of other stuff that we can’t make cutesy jokes about without spoiling the movie – if you haven’t seen Society, you should totally do that before listening.
In a last-ditch effort to save their species from destruction, Rob & Jim use their heretofore unmentioned and thoroughly inexplicable shapeshifting powers to disguise themselves for a meeting with The Applegates.
AND THEN THEY ALL FUCKED.
The end, no moral. Topics discussed at length include digs at forgotten late 90s comedians, a deep dive into the filmography of New World Pictures, and pretty much any other excuse to not talk about Dabney Coleman. Also: we immediately jinx ourselves and pull the worst possible thing! Dark times ahead, folks.
After ten thousand years, we’re free! Time to talk about Sinbad!
In this special episode, Rob & Jim conduct an experiment: if you originate from Universe A (BerenstAin), you’ll hear an hour-long exploration and discussion of the Mandela Effect, and how it relates to Sinbad’s possible appearance in Shazam. If you originate from Universe E (BerenstEin), you’ll hear an extended critique of “90s poverty,” a public service announcement about drunk pets, and a shocking discovery of the true identity of Ron Glass’s character. Plus: You’ll never work in this town again, Jeffrey Jones!
The holidays have come around once more, and how better to celebrate than by watching an obscure psychological horror movie about cannibalism? It’s 1989’s Parents, and the boys are more than happy to tuck right in. Topics sectioned out and lightly braised include the oppressive weirdness of 1950s America, Randy Quaid’s absurd sweatiness, and a deep analysis of Bridge strategy. Activity Corner: Guess which one of the hosts was drinking, and win a prize!
(this didn’t publish before For Some Reason, so here it is)
In the unofficial Lost Episode of 2016, Rob & Jim needle each other with terrible jokes while trying desperately to talk about Uninvited, a 90-minute movie about a poisonous mutant cat killing randos on a yacht. This summary is about five times more awesome than the movie actually is. Topics discussed include the state of the Party Camp Cinematic Universe, how to incriminate yourself for a murder you did not actually commit, and whether or not Wing Commander had better cat puppets. Next time: The Ballad of Actual Cannibal Randy Quaid!
Facing an unprecedented surge in worldwide ant populations, Rob & Jim are dispatched to the latest incident site and given full access to the resources of the Technodrome… but only for 48 hours. After spending two weeks knocking over anthills with a grenade launcher, they engage the dome’s defense systems and discover that – due to a slight miscommunication – they’re armed with a popular Coldplay single instead of experimental insecticide. The ants eat the flesh from their bones, and the world is devoured by the All-Consuming Overhive. Kind of an improvement, honestly. Up next: an orange cat that hates both Mondays and Clu Gulager!
