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.
