Fringe Division: 1.11- Bound


 It's mid-season premiere time on Fringe and Jimmy and Martin think it's kind of... meh. Olivia is a badass, Walter plays with a slug thing and things move pretty quickly. A tad too quickly for us but we have a good chat about it anyway. A chat that wanders into tangents about The X-Files and the X-Men movies. Total coincidence that both franchises have an X in them, honest. Contains strong language and adult humour because Jimmy says a naughty thing.

So, What's the Problem? Sixteen Candles (1984)

 


Jimmy and Jen dive back into the world of John Hughes with what just very well be his most problematic movie ever. We're talking homophobic slurs, sexism, ableism and goofy Asian stereotypes, folks. Strap yourselves in.  And at the end of the episode, we'll announce what movie we're covering next. Contains strong language. 

Urge to kill, rising...

Fringe Division: 1.10- Safe

 It's episode ten of Fringe, folks and it's a doozy! This is how you do a mid-season finale.  It's also our longest episode yet and Jimmy and Martin go over the plot as usual as well as chat about visual effects and suit sizes. It all makes sense, honest. Contains strong language.

Fringe Division: 1.9-The Dreamscape

So, What's the Problem? Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)

Two fans of the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer chat about the 1992 movie that started it all. This episode was announced  before we knew of the news about Joss Whedon but you bet your ass that we're going to talk about it. Contains strong language and personal opinions...

Ugh.

Fringe Division- 1.8: The Equation

 

Martin and Jimmy discuss episode 8 of Fringe, The Equation, which guest stars someone Martin didn't recognise at first but they're from a show that he loves. This week we go through the plot as usual but also it is time we talk about the Glyphs that the show uses. Contains strong language but shockingly not as much as usual.

So, What's the Problem? Supergirl (1984)

 It's our first foray into Superhero movies with this frustrating curio from the 1980s. Strap in folks because we both have thoughts about this mess. Contains strong language and, unfortunately, talk about sexual assault because this dumbass tone deaf family movie tries to pass it off as comedy. 


Bunny!

So, What's the Problem? Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead (1991)

 


Back to the 90s and another favourite of Jen's from her childhood. And Jimmy's first time watching it. They talk about the characters and why one in particular is the worst as well as that long ass title. Does Jimmy like it? Does Jen, still? Listen to find out. Contains strong language. Next week, we delve into the world of comic book movies...

Best acting in the entire movie-

So, What's the Problem? Little Monsters (1989)

 It is time to go back to the late 80s and revisit one of Jimmy's favourite childhood movies. Does it hold up? Of course not, it probably wasn't even good then. Does Jimmy still like it? They discuss that as well as the tone, the make-up, the acting etc. Maybe don't listen to this if you're a fan of the movie... contains strong language. 

No, one Maurice is enough, thanks...

So, What's the Problem? Sliding Doors (1998)

 


This episode, Jimmy and Jen chat about the first British movie on the podcast! As with The Terminator, they decide it was a bad pick but have a fun chat anyway. The next movie will be Little Monsters (1989) starring Fred Savage! Contains strong language. 


Super cute ending of hope...

So, What's the Problem? The Terminator (1984)

 

Happy New Year, we're tackling a classic! We wanted to start 2021 on a good note, so why not cover a movie we both love? It has problems, of course but it's still so good. We also talk about the sequels and Jen ponders time travel. Contains strong language. 


So fucking iconic, man.

So, What's the Problem? Home Alone (1990)

 


It had to happen. In this longer than normal episode, Jimmy and Jen chat about a childhood favourite of both of theirs for a change. As well as the first movie, we also delve into the second briefly and basically just say what the original movie means to them. There are still problems, though. Kind of. 

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays everyone, see you next year!
