Rewind (2013)


Martin returns! Remember Martin? I barely do but here he is to help me talk through the bland sci-fi "thriller" Rewind. We talk about many things including how similar this is to Timeless which just ended, after two seasons and a TV movie, last year. We also had the benefit of having access to the original script, so we talk about the changes to the third act. Enjoy! (contains mild language)

Bonus: Dawson's Creek Commentary


As a bonus episode, Jen and I decided to record an audio commentary for the pilot to Dawson's Creek. Was it a mistake? Listen and see! We discuss the cast, the music, agree on our dislike of a main character and spoil later developments of the show. You can listen to it on its own or while the pilot plays. It is available on DVD, Prime Video in the US and the UK as well as All 4 in the UK. End music- Please Advise by Reed Mathis.

Bonus: Madness-The Pilot (1984)


In this special bonus episode, Jim and I discuss the short pilot presentation Madness: The Pilot. A pitch reel written by Ben Elton and Richard Curtis to try to get the British band Madness their own comedy show. It failed, obviously. The pilot is only 12 minutes long, so bonus episode it is! Enjoy! Contains strong language.

The City (1977)


Tysto returns to talk about something we both actually enjoyed! It stars Robert Forster, Don Johnson and a really rather good Mark Hamill as the bad guy in this cop thriller. It's a 70s show so it's a tad dated at times and it may not replace Tysto's beloved Bunco but we liked it. I'm glad, we can't hate them all! In the podcast, Tysto and I mention Beverly Hills Cop, you can lsiten to our old commentary on that movie HERE. Closing music-1975 by Josh Kirsch/Media Right Productions.
