Episode 10 - Labyrinth, Legend

September 26, 2017

This time we discuss two very iconic mid-'80s fantasy films that have a lot in common. They both bombed at the box office only to go on to become cult classics. They both star gorgeous "cold" brunettes. And they both are titled a single word that starts with the letter "L".

I'm speaking, of course, of the 1986 Jim Henson directed Labyrinth and the 1985 Ridley Scott directed Legend.

Other media we discuss in brief: The Dark Crystal [1982], Phenomena [1985], Seven Minutes in Heaven [1985]

Intro and outro songs by Michael Cook.

Episode 8 - Class of Nuke ‘Em High, Crocodile Dundee

June 28, 2017

Whoa! After waaaay too long of a break, we're back to weekly podcasting.

We kick off our glorious return with this episode where we review two very different films from 1986: the bizarre high school gross-out comedy Class of Nuke 'Em High (Troma's second best movie), and the chick flick disguised as an action-adventure comedy, Crocodile Dundee.

Other movies we discuss in brief: The Toxic Avenger [1984], Airplane! [1980], Robocop 2 [1990], Romancing the Stone [1984]

Intro and outro songs by Michael Cook.

Episode 7 - The New Kids, Care Bears Movie, Private Resort

December 6, 2016

We thought we'd try something a little different this episode and cover three films, but in less depth than we typically do. We figure this would be a good way to feature things that we otherwise wouldn’t talk about since we'd be hard pressed to discuss them for an entire episode. Let us know if you prefer this format, or if you'd rather see us stick to one topic per episode. Currently, I foresee us doing a mix of both, but we'd like to hear your feedback.

The three movies we discuss are all quite different, starting with the teen thriller The New Kids, then things shift from spooky to saccharine as we discuss The Care Bears Movie, and finally, we talk about the sex comedy that Johnny Depp is embarrassed to have starred in: Private Resort. Just about the only thing these three movies have in common is they were all released in 1985.

Other movies we discuss in brief: Class of 1984 [1982], Zapped! [1982]

Episode 6 - Evil Dead 2 (Gregg guest)

November 23, 2016

We have a mega-special double-length episode this week. Not only does it feature our first guest, the awesome Gregg Samsa, but it also features us discussing a movie that's incredibly important to me: Evil Dead 2. Of course, we also talk a lot about the original Evil Dead and Army of Darkness. We also discuss how horror movies in general evolved over the course of the '80s, and at the end of the episode, we tell the tale of how Gregg and the "vampire killer of Paris" are largely responsible for Jessica and I meeting. I also share a few anecdotes from my days as the singer of the horror-themed rock band The EverDead, including my very intimate encounter with a gay zombie.

Episode 4 - Xtro

November 18, 2016

We feel that this is the episode where we hit our podcasting stride. Definitely the best one yet. We discuss Xtro, a bizarre 1982 British sci-fi horror movie made in the wake of E.T.'s mega success, in which we learn that some extraterrestrials aren't friendly.

Episode 3 - Police Story

November 18, 2016

Episode 3 is rad as hell. We discuss Police Story, a 1985 kung fu action comedy co-written, directed, and starring Jackie Chan. You should totally listen to it and learn all about our “Jackie Chan experience.”

Episode 1 - Death Wish 3

November 18, 2016

That's right, we, the creators of Satan Ninja 198X (the raddest '80s-themed webcomic of all time), have jumped on board the podcast bandwagon. Or, actually, we're riding our skateboards while holding on to the back of the bandwagon, Marty McFly style, because that's way cooler than sitting in some fucking crowded bandwagon.

For the past few years, Jessica and I have almost exclusively consumed media from the '80s (partially for our entertainment, and partially as research for our comic). After every movie or show that we watch, I read up on it and then we discuss it and give our ratings (out of five). So we figured we might as well turn those discussions into a short podcast (most episodes run about 30-40 minutes).

The very first trial episode we recorded was actually after we saw the terrible 1984 Supergirl movie. However, we recorded it really late so Jessica was mega tired and it showed in the recording. We consider that episode zero, and instead of releasing it publicly, Jessica made it available to her patrons as a little bonus.

For our first "official" episode, we discuss the awesomely terrible 1985 movie Death Wish 3.
