Remember When – Episode 53
Walter White vs. The World Crime League
Our tangents escape us as we start off Episode 53, the latest and greatest episode in your Remember When podcast. Before the show even starts, we kick off with some crazy hijinx as Siri delivers some bad news to Parris, leaving him flummoxed as Florida State is down at the half.
And then we jump into this week’s episode of “Great” Movies Jay Has Never Seen. We’re using “Great” in the loosest sense of the word, because our latest movie from the Wayback Machine is The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: Across the Eighth Dimension. If you’ve never seen this movie before, our advice before watching it is…. don’t. If you have seen the movie before, then sit back and relax as we look at one of those nostalgic 80’s movies that has been absolutely decimated by the passage of time. Seriously, what were we thinking?
After a spoiler-laden discussion, we jump into our thoughts on some of the upcoming movies for 2012 and how the last three months of the year may be infinitely better than the first nine combined. With so many great movies in November and December, it almost makes up for the lackluster summer season.
We take a look back at the first half of Breaking Bad’s final season and discuss whether or not it was a smart idea to split the season, and if the narrative handled the split well. We also chat about NBC’s comedies as the fall season starts, and some of the more promising shows in this year’s lineup. Plus, Jay gives us the scoop on his Walking Dead adventures!
And guess what? WE HAVE A VOICE MAIL PHONE LINE AGAIN! And more importantly, it accepts both phone calls and standard text messages. So why not give us a ring at 714-758-5027?
