#95 The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

Chicken Ranch DT80s

It’s Andrew-programs-the-show-in-the-month-of-April (APTSITMOA for short), so we’re doing a musical!

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas has Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton as the ultimate dream team! Jim Nabors absolutely kills it as a cop doofus and Dom DeLuise as a crackpot investigative reporter is genius! Tripp falls in love with another musical, Andrew doesn’t notice any nudity, so many questions about brothel etiquette, Pappy O’Daniel rides again and so much more!

#94 Overboard

Overboard DT80s

Out-of-context quote from this episode: This is Gaslighting: The Motion Picture!

Is there a more 80s plot than wanting to build a miniature golf course? Is Kurt Russell the worst father in this show’s history? Why is everyone SO OK with this insane plot?! Who’s the bigger draw, Goldie Hawn or Kurt Russell? Why does this bowling alley have a bespoke novelty band?! How is everyone SO OK with not telling this woman the truth!? Are washing machines the scummiest birthday gift?! Andrew writes the darkest possible ending.
All this and more!

#93 Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice DT80s

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

Happy 30th anniversary to the delightfully weird Beetlejuice! Michael Keaton in the role of a lifetime (will we see him go Hawaiian!?), the absurdity of artists in movies, just what is this model of the town for? Is this the worst afterlife of all time? Mild spoilers for The Good Place (you should watch it!)! All this and more!

#92 Heathers

Heathers DT80s

It’s the weirdest Dissecting the 80s of all time!

Hear Tripp and Andrew dive into Andrew’s LONG-requested favorite: Heathers, a movie Tripp can’t stand!

It’s a live dissolution of a 26-year-old relationship (not really). Why does JD have such influence?! What’s the tone here? Is croquet the best lawn game? Do these people like each other? Just what makes a black comedy, anyway? Great pate, gotta split.

All this and more!

#91 Death Wish IV

Death Wish 4 2 DT80s

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “There’s a pile of mysterious powders at the party with a sign that just says: Snortin’ Drugs, and the “R”s are backwards.”

It’s more FOURBRUARY: Crime and Punishment as we get into Death Wish IV, the late, late sequel nobody wanted. In this episode: Charles Bronson is 100 years old, where is he getting all of these disguises? How great is it to see real cars explode? Why didn’t the audience know what was in that wine bottle? Can you root for a vigilante? How bad is this character’s luck?
All this and more!

#90: Police Academy 4

image (1)

Tyler Marchant of Cynical Cartoons joins Tripp and Andrew to talk about the completely unnecessary sequel Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol!

That’s right, it’s FOURBRUARY: Crime and Punishment edition. Why did Tripp torture a guest with this pick? Just what is Bobcat Goldthwait’s deal? How do you make a good Slobs vs. Snobs picture? Is this the worst police recruiting idea of all time? What’s Sharon Stone doing here? WHY ARE THERE BALLOONS? Who is this movie FOR!? (12-year-old boys).

#89 The House on Sorority Row

image

Tripp gushes over his alma mater and can’t read his own handwriting, Andrew doesn’t know the difference between a den mother and a house mother, let us know about house mothers!, Tripp gets biblical, the miracle of graduating directly into jobs, a brief Riverdale interlude, TELL SOMEONE WHAT’S WRONG DOCTOR!, Tripp tells an insane wrong number story, an absolutely, completely, totally, insane “prank” plan, so much kayfabe, Tripp is a small marshmallow man and he fought a bus? The return of our Uber Driver character, plus a whole hell of a lot of murderin’!
