TV & Film

Two fat nerds attack Movies, TV and Video Games!

Episodes

35 years ago a little known actor, Nicolas Cage, had his first starring role in the teen comedy-romance, “Valley Girl” so to celebrate this milestone we went back and watched it for this month’s mini ep.

Joe had fond memories of this from back in the day, especially the soundtrack, but turns out Mitch remembered it more for the trailer than the film itself.

Does it still hold up after all this time? Did it ever? And what the hell is going on with Cage’s chest hair?

This month Joe has started a new mobile game called “The Muscle Hustle” and binge watched the street racing reality series “Fastest Car” and the coming-of-age cartoon “Big Mouth” on Netflix, as well as starting the Karate Kid spin-off “Cobra Kai” and the classic sit-com “The Golden Girls”. We even managed to start season 2 of “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Westworld” too.

For movies Mitch goes in-depth, but spoiler free for “Avengers: Infinity War” and Joe raves about “The Greatest Showman” and “Peter Rabbit” before we wrap up the show with a chat about our adventures at Free Comic Book Day.

This month, inspired by the new graphic novel "Is This Guy For Real? The Incredible Andy Kaufman" by cartoonist Box Brown, for our not-so-mini mini episode we go down a crazy rabbit hole.

We discuss the life of Andy, as depicted in the book, including his early years, Elvis impersonations, Foreign Man, his role on the sitcom "Taxi", his alter-ego Tony Clifton, and,  more close to our wheel houses, his foray into the world of professional wrestling for his feud with Jerry "The King" Lawler.

We also discuss the 1999 Jim Carey film "Man On The Moon", dive into the very strange "My Breakfast with Blassie" and watch a lot of YouTube clips of the man himself.
