Remember When – Episode 57

0

Iron Patriot Games

Look!  Up in the Sky!  It’s a bird… it’s a plane… IT BIRD PLANE!   Meanwhile, back on the ground, a brand new episode of Remember When is available for your auditory enjoyment.

Iron Man 3 hit theaters last week, and both of us have strong opinions on the first volley in Marvel’s Phase 2 initiative.  We converse about what it’s like coming off of The Avengers and how Iron Man 3 fails in that regard, what the movie does to be better than its atrocious successor in the Iron Man series, and how Robert Downey Jr. might be getting too old for this s**t.

Then we slide our way into talk about the most recent trailers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel.  The former is just hours from release and we can’t wait to sink our fanboy teeth into this piece of cinematic goodness!  The latter is looking more and more promising.  And somehow, as we’re talking, we manage to find ourselves talking about an alternate universe where the Beatles reunite and Superman III is never made.

No, that’s not a joke.

Then it’s on to the TV in our lives! Mad Men is letting us down, and Parks & Recreation is on FIRE this season.  Parris encourages Jay to watch Archer, Parris talks about his change in viewing habits, and Jay encourages everyone to listen to The Americans… again.

Remember When – Episode 53

0

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?  Or if you don’t want to hear the sounds of our voices, you can click through to our Facebook page or say hi to us on Twitter.

Remember When – Episode 52

Jeff Goldblum: Dinosaur Slayer

We’re back in the saddle right out of the gate with episode 52. Want us to prove it?  Here’s the scoop:  We tangent RIGHT AWAY.  Before we start talking about movies, before we jump into any of our planned topics, we get ourselves sidetracked.  And with real life news, to boot!  We talk about some of the successes in our personal lives, what’s been driving us lately… and even hint strongly at a video game podcast in the near-ish future?

After ten minutes, we hop into the Wayback Machine and jump back in time to 1993.  America was still recoiling from the horrific news that Crystal Pepsi was being pulled off the market, and we needed something to heal ourselves with.  Along comes Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg’s popcorn flick based on the Michael Crichton novel.    We talk about what it was like to sit wide-eyed under a giant screen with the new DTS sound systems when the movie came out on opening weekend…. and then give the movie a fresh look.  Can a two decade old movie that’s special effect heavy hold up under the weight of time?

Then we tangent into Star Wars and Spielberg’s involvement with the Lucas franchise (and vice versa)… and further spiral off into Jay’s “delayed reaction” on some of our recent comedies… Parris’ fresh look at The Avengers… and more!  It’s one of our most tangent-y shows of all time, and it’s chock full of goodies.

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?  Or if you don’t want to hear the sounds of our voices, you can click through to our Facebook page or say hi to us on Twitter.
