Podgodz 300: This is the End…

Recorded 07 August 2018

Lax Notes:

Back from the Cabin, but still with 1 more day off

 

Looking at back notes to the show, starting at #15 which is when I started to keep them. September 2012: I miss Ganz on Car Cast and an dropping it. You Look Nice Today is still releasing episodes, I am pissed off at Carolla for being mean, doing bad pod, and being disrespectful to guests by making them wait, even David Wilde who I hate.

 

I was just about to drop Mental Illness Happy Hour, and I thought that Chris Hardwick was “Strangely mean and no one seems to be having fun”. Of my Top 5 I am listening to No Agenda and Roderick on the Line.

 

Show 25: November 9, 2012.

 

I was angry at Disney for preventing Simmons from being on Carolla and comment that they just bought Star Wars. Yep.

I was cooling on WTF and found Maron a chore.

Aww, Megaboom was a thing and I listened to Apatow on the ACS.

 

#32: Nerdist Sampler

“The problem is I don’t like Chris. I do not think he is authentic and is perhaps an alien simulacrum. The other huge problem for me is the long term banking of shows. I know he is a busy guy, so maybe he has to bank some episodes, but they should at least be released in order. I would rather they release fewer episodes.

 

I am also not a fan of the shows they record at the E! studios. They seem distracted, there is a guy working over in the corner, and it is them eking out time in the middle of the work day so NONE of them are in the mood to be funny – they are busy and thinking about the rest of the day.”

 

Episode 100, April 2, 2014

Still listening to Classic Loveline (Little Brother Nate), JJGO and Stop Podcasting yourself. Dune was actually making podcasts.

 

#200 28 June 2016. My top show was This Life with Dr. Drew and Skelator (in a hat) talking to Craig Shoemaker.

 

#230: 31 January 2017, the last weekly podcast episode. Aww, Low Budget had an update, I went to an Anti-Fascist rally totally now with a baby bjorn with my service weapon in it.

 

Eureka was a show, fuck those quitters, an also runner was Night Attack with guest Robert Carghill.

 

So with that trip down memory lane…my god, why the fuck has anyone kept listening? Clearly I stopped caring well into double digits.

Podgodz 299

Podgodz 299: 12 Monkeys (2015) S01 E01 & E02

Recorded 31 July 2018

 

What LAX is Watching

Orange is the New Black

Santa Clarita Diet

 

A Backdoor pilot, an unrelated time travel spec script gets turned into a 12 Monkeys because the people who owns the rights want some money.

 

Let’s round up all the not great: script, acting, and story.

 

Episode 1

In 2043, scientists led by Katarina Jones complete a Project Splinter time machine to stop an apocalyptic plague before it happens. Their best lead is a corrupted 2017 recording from virologist Cassandra “Cassie” Railly which identifies Leland Frost with the plague’s origins and prophetically asks for James Cole, whom Jones recruits as a chrononaut. Cole questions Cassie in 2013, proving he is a time traveller by causing a scratch to appear on a future version of her watch, but she does not yet know about Frost. Cassie investigates on her own and when they meet again in 2015 she has identified Frost as Markridge Group CEO Leland Goines who is working on biological weapons. Cole fails to assassinate Goines and they are captured, Goines realizing that Cole is a time traveller he’d met in 1987 when Cole was looking for the Army of the 12 Monkeys. Knowing he will survive to do this, Cole puts the two versions of Cassie’s watch together, creating an explosive paradox. He kills Goines but it does not rewrite the post-apocalyptic future. Elsewhere, psychiatric patient Jennifer Goines inherits her father’s fortunes and is shown drawing the monkey logo.

 

Episode 2

Cole is directed to find information about a patient in a Philadelphia mental institution who is somehow linked to the “Army of the 12 Monkeys.” The scientists attempt to send him to 2015, but he winds up in North Korea in 2006, where an interrogator finds Cole’s note with the institution’s address. After being redirected to 2015 Cole finds the mentally unstable Jennifer Goines in the institution. Cassie gets Aaron Marker to take her to hide in her parents’ old bookstore, and she tells him there’s a cover-up taking place about Leland Goines’s death. Aaron brings her information spied from North Korea identifying Cole’s presence there in 2006, as well as the address of the institution from Cole’s note. At the institution Jennifer tells Cole that she worked for her father, and that she’s one of only two people left who know the location of his secret lab, the Night Room. Just as Cassie arrives at the institution to get Cole, a mysterious pallid man with a scar arrives and kidnaps Jennifer. He is revealed to be the man who killed both Jennifer’s coworkers at her father’s lab (leading to her mental breakdown) and Cassie’s ex-NSA contact Jeremy.

 

On the next episode, it’s our last podcast only episode and then we go fortnightly and jam it all into one burrito of shame.

Podgodz 297

Podgodz 297: Wonder Years FUCK THAT! Smokey and the Bandit! (1977)

Recorded 17 July 2018

This has an Academy award nomination, it’s that classy! (for editing)

Released 2 days, yes TWO DAYS after Star Wars, although a movie I would not have seen until later that summer, in a Penticton drive-in theatre about this time of year.

 

The movie that created Hal Needham and launched many sequels and prequels and USA network TV movies that stared talent the likes of Elizabeth Berkley, Kathy Ireland, and Traci Lords, the Canon Balls Run both 1 AND 2, Hooper, Megaforce, Stoker Ace as well as the I am sure Oscar winners Rad and Body Slam.

 

Good LORD, he also directed a western with Kirk Douglas, Ann-Margaret and Arnold Schwarzenegger! That I want to see.

 

What is good about this movie? Burt Renolds is actually personable as hell as is Sally Field. Especially together, it’s no surprise they were in the good part of their relationship. Jackie Gleason is also pretty fucking amazing. I imagine he is just doing what ever the fuck he wanted to do, because no way is this the writing talent of Needham.

 

The story? Eh. IMDB sum it up as “The Bandit is hired on to run a tractor trailer full of beer over state lines, in hot pursuit by a pesky sheriff.”

 

Does it have characters named “Hot Pants” and “Little Beaver”? You bet it does.

 

Does it have casual racism? Yep. Confederate flags? Yep.

 

Homosexual slurs? Darn Tootin!

 

Bechdel test? Oh hell no. Although…it isn’t totally misogynist?

 

Did you realize that The Bandit is actually a famous TRUCK DRIVER? Famous enough to be paid to appear at something called a Truck Rodeo? That the truck, and oddly the trailer, is owned by The Bandit and not Cletus?

 

Things I noticed: multiple skid marks – take 3?

Scary car moments.

Are podcasts the new CB radio?

Sheriff Justice wears Elvis sunglasses.

Technical bootlegging in a time where Coor’s Banquet was not only considered beer, but good beer.
