#71 Short Circuit

shortcircuit
Out-of-context quote from this episode: “[Steve Guttenberg] in this movie and Ed Begley, Jr. in She-Devil are the two biggest ‘… what?’ casting decisions.”
Steve Gutenberg finally makes it onto the show, Ally Sheedy has brown football helmet hair, Military robutts, Johnny 5 is alive, Steve Guttenberg makes no sense as a robot programmer, Jim Tasty of tasty videos gets inspired when one-pan pasta is invented, robots continue to like watching sunrises and sunsets, Tripp posits a semi-insane theory for robot humanity based on sunsets, Ally Sheedy thinks robots are aliens, Tripp teaches facts about dog food, Andrew has strong opinions about prestige television, Tripp projects a short fictional story about Steve Guttenberg’s high school life and laughs too long at his own bit, Johnny 5 is the beginning of the singularity, we talk a lot about WestWorld sex robots (no spoilers) and we take a bunch of shots at our old pal Ed Begley, Jr (someone draw that saloon, please!). All this and more!

#70 Heartbeeps

Heartbeeps DT80s

“It’s basically ‘My Dinner with Andre’ with robots. I don’t understand what we’re doing here.”

In this episode: A terrifying Andy Kaufman. A robot telling Catskills jokes. A severe lack of cool robot $hit. A gross misunderstanding of the appeal of C-3PO and R2-D2. Andrew wants baby robots, and almost breaks Tripp’s brain about robot lifecycles. A deep discussion of Muppet Babies vis a vis regular-size Muppets and their aging process.

And like, so much more.

Listen!
