#88 Slumber Party Massacre

Slumber Party Massacre DT80s

So much extraneous nudity, Tripp can’t tell any of the characters apart, it’s impossible to tell how old anyone is, the killer is revealed WAY TOO EARLY, a side digression on quesadilla preparation, stunt snails are discussed, 100 hours of Ray Donovan, Andrew doesn’t know who Winston Wolf is, an INSANE amount of baseball discussion, massive confusion over the killer’s plan or reasons and so much more!

[Note: Tarantino’s long-time editor was Sally Menke, who died in 2010].
All this and more!

#87 New Year’s Evil

New Years Evil DT80s

Happy New Year! We’re celebrating leaving 2017 in the rearview mirror with a strange kickoff to SLASHUARY: New Year’s Evil!

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “As East Coasters, we’re the selfish lovers of New Year’s Eve. Welp, I’m done. Night!”
Who dressed these punk kids? Would a time-zone based killer be more interesting if it was a super-rich guy with a jet (yes!)? Why is this woman famous? “Allegedly” become a very important word. Andrew slanders a fast food spokesman. So MUCH murder! Andrew pretends not to know that ABC Family is now FREEFORM, and Tripp calls him out on it. Andrew shows a senseless disregard for human life over $80 and champagne. Plus, the triumphant return of The Uber Driver!

#86 One Magic Christmas

1 One Magic Christmas DT80s

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “She gets treated like the actual anti-christ BECAUSE SHE’S SAD! It’s absolutely crazy!”

In this episode: Tripp rants about winter misery, Mary Steenburgen is real sad and almost reveals a horrifying truth to children, a little kid watches the honeymooners? some utterly insane child acting, Dad wants to open a bike shop, Molly Monaghan (what’s up Sarah Polley!), basic finance lessons are discussed, Harry Dean Stanton is the greatest drunk, homeless angel ever, and the CRAZIEST THIRD ACT IN HISTORY. All this and more!

Listen!

#85 Star Wars: Droids S01E01

Droids DT80s

Out-of-context-quote from this episode: “That movie title is basically ‘F*** you nerds, you’re gonna pay us anyway.'”

Star Wars is just a couple of weeks away, so we’re getting into the groove early with Droids!
Not quite Droid Babies that Andrew wanted, this weird series follows R2-D2 and C-3PO on a side adventure with NONE of the characters you love! Hear a podcast more than twice the length of the episode, with digressions on the state of Star Wars, including the upcoming Ron Howard Han Solo story! All this and more!

#84 The Money Pit

The Mone Pit DT80s

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “The best way to celebrate a holiday is away from anyone who means anything to you with two dorks you’ve never met before.”

It’s T. Hanks-giving, and we’re celebrating America’s Sweetheart Tom Hanks and Shelley Long in the classic The Money Pit!
Hear the origins of the American Housing Crisis! Befuddling closeups of hands doing mundane tasks! A movie that finally pairs two people of similar levels of attractiveness, age and financial background! The wonders of Branson, Missourri. Tripp uses the phrase “Mumps-ey” and tries to see if he could conduct an orchestra. Tom Hanks survives a bag of soup fall. Tripp tells a sad bath story. Andrew gets blasted by a sad moment. Sage advice from a repairman.

#83 Earth Girls Are Easy

Out-of-context quote from this episode: “Michael’s on a surfboard!”

Why is everyone making such bold decisions about these aliens? Is this the scummiest boyfriend in the history of the show? Peak Jeff Goldblum, magic touching, some really awful gay stereotyping, plus Andrew shares a Jeff Goldblum Hot Take and the return of Dr. Loomis! All this and more!

#82 Haunted Honeymoon

Haunted Honeymoon DT80s

Out-of-Context-Quote from this episode: “This feels like a watercolor painting that they spilled water on and were like, ‘Eh, f*** it, put it up.'”

Dom Deluise is confusing, What is actually happening in this movie?, how, exactly, did press for radio work?, This psychiatrist makes no sense, we’d rather talk about Slapwich than this dumb, dumb movie, so much telling and so little showing, Tripp can’t say Gilda Radner, Who ARE all these people?!, Tripp goes after Season 1 SNL, Andrew doesn’t think people know what The Time Warp is, We genuinely can’t tell what the hell is going on, Stew vs. Stu, Is anyone counting our running Chekhov’s _____ list?, How is this Donald Duck impression cleared? Who brushes their teeth into a bedside cup!? How can Gene Wilder not differentiate Gilda Radner from an overweight dead man?! And he tries to sleep with a dead body!

Listen!
