So, What's the Problem? E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)


It's Jen's birthday year pick and she has chosen this, a childhood favourite to many, a big bag of "eh, it's fine" to one of our hosts. Jimmy and Jen discuss such topics as directors changing their movies years after the fact, a story of when Jen met a star of this movie and those audio tape and book movie adaptations. Remember those? Those were great. E.T. had two. At the time of recording this episode, the next episode hadn't been decided but it's The Craft (1996). Contains strong language. 

This is iconic, it really, truly is...

So, What's the Problem? Trading Places (1983)

They also chat about, with zero authority, THAT John Landis incident, Denholm Elliott's interesting marriage and the state of Jen's office. This is our last episode of the year and we're taking a wee break, we'll be back on January 24th.  Contains strong language. 

I can't go for that, no...

So, What's the Problem? Red Heat (1988)

It's movie two of Schwarzenegger season as we cover his second (though released first) movie of 1988. And it's totally different from Twiiiiins. This also marks Jen's second foray into the world of Walter Hill for the podcast. Did she like this better than 48 Hrs? Contains strong language and political views that may not match your own but that's okay, it's all good. Stay tuned at the end to hear what is Arnie movie number three. 

This was what sold Arnie on the script. Seriously.

So, What's the Problem? Twins (1988)

 It's the first movie of our Arnie season and Jen has picked Twiiiiiiiins! A movie neither had seen in decade. It's a deceptively light and fluffy family comedy that is actually occasionally dark and this week's discussion reflects that.  It's also a short episode this week as time was not on our host's side.  Contains strong language. 

I mean, maybe not the best example as the poster bicep is bigger than his head...

Drop the Pilot: The Elvira Show (1993)

 Jimmy and Tysto chat about the early 90s attempt to spin off Elvira into the world of sit-com. They'd already tried movies and comics, so why not? Sadly the gritty police procedural never happened. Our hosts also talk about Seinfeld and Friends, because, sit-coms! Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)


Happy Halloween, Guys and Ghouls! To celebrate the occasion, Jimmy and Jen chat about the embarrassing drunken brother of the Halloween franchise, Season of the Witch! They talk about terrible protagonists, pointless romances and have a chat about the franchise as well as others. Excuse our hosts if they seem "off" this episode, Jimmy was fighting a stomach bug and Jen had just woken up, given they were recording at 9am her time on a Saturday. Contains strong language. Stick to the end to hear what movie season (not month) is coming up on the podcast next. 

Jimmy loves this shot soooooo much...
