Drop the Pilot: The Elvira Show (1993)

 Jimmy and Tysto chat about the early 90s attempt to spin off Elvira into the world of sit-com. They'd already tried movies and comics, so why not? Sadly the gritty police procedural never happened. Our hosts also talk about Seinfeld and Friends, because, sit-coms! Contains strong language.

So, What's the Problem? Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)


Happy Halloween, Guys and Ghouls! To celebrate the occasion, Jimmy and Jen chat about the embarrassing drunken brother of the Halloween franchise, Season of the Witch! They talk about terrible protagonists, pointless romances and have a chat about the franchise as well as others. Excuse our hosts if they seem "off" this episode, Jimmy was fighting a stomach bug and Jen had just woken up, given they were recording at 9am her time on a Saturday. Contains strong language. Stick to the end to hear what movie season (not month) is coming up on the podcast next. 

Jimmy loves this shot soooooo much...

So, What's the Problem? Scream 3 (2000)

 It's spooky season and what better way to celebrate it by covering a movie that sits at number 30 of 50 on Jimmy's "Least Favourite Films" list on Letterboxd. It's Scream 3, people! They discuss the new cast, script problems, bad story decisions and regretful hair choices. Contains strong language and spoilers for the franchise as well as speculation on the upcoming 5th movie. 


Hey, Scream 3...

So, What's the Problem? Bugsy Malone (1976)

 It's Jimmy's birthday and to celebrate, he gets to pick a move from the year of his birth that he watched as a kid. So, Bugsy Malone it is. It's a gangster movie where all the characters are played by kids and instead of guns with bullets, cream is a deadly weapon. And they have pedal cars! But does having kids play parts that are usually portrayed by adults, problematic? Listen to find out! Contains mild language. 

This kid grew up to direct the Elton John biopic, Rocketman...

Drop the Pilot- Back to Norm (2005)

 

Drop the whaaaaat? Yeah, that's right, we are back. Tysto and Jimmy pay tribute Norm MacDonald and what better way to do that than to crap on a failed pilot of his? They discuss each sketch as well as humour which leads to talk of British panel shows and both hosts seem to have a different definition of what makes someone "camp". Contains strong language and talk of suicide, as that is in the show in question.

So, What's the Problem? She's All That (1999)

 We're back and so are romantic comedies and the pinnacle of the genre from the 90s... Oh, wait, this isn't 10 Things I Hate About You, that movie's so good. Anyway, there's this, instead. We talk about the cast and its weak link, unnecessary scenes and just how good 10 Things I Hate About You is. It's so good, you guys.  Contains strong language and stay tuned at the end for what we're doing next week. 


Matthew, love you dude but...no...
