So, What's the Problem? Reality Bites (1994)


It's Jen's pick this week and she chose a favourite of hers that spoke to a generation of Americans. Jimmy, however is Scottish and just wonders what all the fuss is about. They both agree on one thing, however... one of the characters is the absolute worst. This leads to a discussion about our memories from watching movies as a kid and how, as we get older, our tastes change as do our perceptions of certain people or circumstances. Oh and we both love the cracking soundtrack. The audio on this one isn't great but because of this, there should be no ads during the episode. Just couldn't do that to you guys/gals. Contains strong language. 

Infamous, wholesome fun scene where they dance to a song about an adult who prefers teenage girls:

So, What's the Problem?: The Good Son (1993)


Jimmy and Jen delve into the sheer nothingness of the movie MacCauley Culkin made for Fox right after Home Alone 2 because he was still bankable. This was the last movie kid Culkin made for Fox. They talk about the casting, the cinematography and how the overall tone just does not fit. Jen wages war against the movie's choice of font and Jimmy gets annoyed at the dialogue. Contains strong language and adult themes in a movie primarily about kids. 

Ooooh, edgy!

Coming Soon... A Brand New Podcast


So... Martin and Jimmy are doing a Fringe re-watch podcast. We are still sorting things out but when we do, we'll let you know. Fringe is a sci-fi TV show created by J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci. It ran for 100 episodes over 5 seasons on Fox in the US and Sky One in the UK from 2008-2013. It's currently streaming on StarzPlay on Amazon in the UK and IMDB TV in the US, if you want to re-watch with us or watch for the first time. It's a good show or so we remember. Back soon with more info and a start date.

Drop the Pilot: 17th Precinct (2011)


Martin (and Drop the Pilot) returns to talk about a Battlestar reunion of sorts. Same creator and stars but this is about a world where science doesn't exist, so cops have to solve crimes using magic. Yup. This was Martin's pick and has he finally go what he wanted, that diamond in the rough???? Contains strong language.

"So, What's the Problem?" Mrs Doubtfire (1993)

I can hear you all now, "no, not my beloved Mrs Doubtfire?!?" Afraid so, but that's the point of this podcast, we can still enjoy problematic things, remember? The thing is, though, this particular movie has one MAJOR problem that Jimmy rants about. Strap in, folks, although, it may not be what you think...  Contains strong language. I have included a link to the "Mrs Doubtfire as a horror movie" trailer below. 

The stuff of actual nightmares-

So, What's the Problem? Pretty Woman (1990)

Hey, we're tackling another well made movie, what's going on? This is an unusual episode because we can't really find problems with the movie so we discuss other people's problems with it. Audio is not 100% perfect but it doesn't take away from the episode. Contains strong language and adult themes. 
One of the most wonderfully natural moments in film-
