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!

Drop the Pilot- Poor Devil (1973)

Jimmy and Tysto return to chat about the 1973 Sammy Davis Jr vehicle, Poor Devil. And it's set at Christmas! It aired on Valentines Day, though, for some reason. The pilot can be found on Amazon Prime for free in the US and for a fee in the UK. You can always watch the crappy quality version on Youtube.

Fringe Division: 1.5- Power Hungry


It's episode five of the hit TV show Fringe and despite a pretty bloody good opening scene, it's downhill from there. It's an odd episode, so much so that they guys struggle to find a good Walter line but at least it gives Martin something to talk about. Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? Go (1999)


Aaaand, we're back in the 90s for a Jen pick. And it's almost Christmas! And what better way to celebrate than to talk about this Tarantino wannabe that's set on Christmas Eve? Buckle up, Jimmy's going to rant a little. Contains strong language. Next week- Fringe Division returns. 

As someone who has worked in retail, I can relate...

Fringe Division- The Arrival


Hey, folks, we're not sure but there may be a bald guy in a suit in this episode! It's episode 4 of Fringe and things are starting to happen. We obviously talk about the bald guy, who also gets a name this episode and Jimmy has a wee moan about the writing of Peter. Which Martin dismisses. Next episode will be out on December 7th.

Drop the Pilot- Beane's of Boston (1979)

Nick and Alex from the Release the Clowns podcast return to talk about the proposed American version of the classic UK sitcom, Are You Being Served? We talk abut the cast (as usual), the original show and why it was a weird choice adapting this particular episode for American audiences. Also, why did they change Peacock's title? Why demote him to just "Mr"? Well, we discuss this and many more things. The audio on my side isn't great on occasion but it's still listenable. Anyway, the pilot is on Youtube, the link is below.

So, What's The Problem? Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987)


It's our early Thanksgiving special! And for this, we visit one of Jimmy's childhood favourites. Also, it's the first John Hughes movie on the show! How have we gone 15 episodes without covering his problematic ass? It's less so here but there are still things to discuss. We disagree on the characters but agree on the actors portraying them and Jimmy goes on a rant about the 80s music career of a former Beatle. Next episode is a new Drop the Pilot and So, What's the Problem shall return on December 1st. Contains strong language. 

We miss John Candy...

Fringe Division- The Ghost Network


Episode three of Fringe gives us nice visuals, good character work and an interesting plot, all good so far. As we tend to miss talking about certain things that may have been important or interesting, I have inserted some clips of the show during this episode. Contains strong language.

 Jimmy and Jen talk about The Faculty in this feature length commentary. They talk about The cast, the obviousness of the lead alien and which parts of the plot just don't make sense. Jen is watching on DVD while Jimmy is watching on Blu-ray. Contains strong language and complaints about 90's hair.

Bonus- An American Werewolf in London (1981) Commentary.

So, Tysto and I recorded a commentary for the second best Werewolf movie of the early 80s. Yeah, that's right, I said it. JOE DANTE RULES! Ahem... anyway, this is a joint production with Tysto's podcast and a slightly different version of it is available on Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? Cherry Falls (2000)


Jimmy and Jen get into the Halloween spirit with this little seen horror comedy from the turn of the century. It's the one about the killer knocking off virgins in the small town of Cherry Falls. We talk about the premise, the cast, the very odd character beats, how the MPAA screwed the movie and, sadly, rape and pressuring people into having sex in the context of said motion picture. Contains strong language and adult themes. Recorded on 11th October 2020.
