Episode 10: Rear Window

Ep 10: Rear Window

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Films

Brace yourselves for intrigue, analysis, and Dan’s terrible, terrible Jimmy Stewart impression as the boys peer into Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window.

The book Ms. Fremont is reading at the end of the film? it’s Beyond the High Himalayas by William O. Douglas

 

Freemont Interurban IPA

Regarding the unidentified “chunks” (clearly, it was not particulate) – it turns out that was yeast. Since beer should not have visible yeast (because it’s f&*$%ing gross), our expert friend determined that the beer was either old or got too warm during shipping. So I guess Fremont is off the hook.

Wait, who is Gaby Hoffman again? She’s the actress who won the 1990 Young Artist award for her portrayal of Karin Kinsella in Field of Dreams.

 

Corrections & Retractions

Jeff meant “Atonement with the Father Ale,” not “Apotheosis with the Father Ale.” But we left it in because it’s funny, in a story-nerd kind of way.

Ep 4: The American President

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Films

The stakes are high in this episode as Jeff and Dan once again butt heads about who’s the protagonist. But the real action comes in the middle of Act II when one of our beloved hosts turns out to be completely wrong—about everything. Jeff gushes about Joshua Malina and The West Wing Weekly, and Dan whips out his own Gene Hackman impression. With heated conflict, themed libations, upgraded sound effects, and an entirely new segment, Episode 4 is not to be missed!

Corrections & Retractions:
  • Jeff meant to say “la petite mort,” not “le petit mort.” He apologizes for his rusty French.

Ep 3: The Handmaid’s Tale

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Books, TV

Join Dan and Jeff as they tackle Margaret Atwood’s time-bending, highly relevant dystopian masterpiece, The Handmaid’s Tale. There’s so little overlap in their analyses, it’s hard to believe they read the same book.

Corrections & Retractions:
  • Yes, Jeff is aware that he did a Yoda impression when Dan mentioned Obi-Wan. It’s only because Gene Hackman played Yoda, and we all know how much Jeff loves Gene Hackman.
  • What else did we screw up? Let us know in the comments, but be sure to blame Dan.
