025: Improv – Reggie & Buck

Here we have maybe the most embarrassing thing that both Mike and Phil have ever done. Lets just preface this with the fact that this was entirely Mike’s idea and Phil is simply a peach for going along with it. Mike’s an idiot. Anyways, this is the very first and possibly only improv episode. Phil and Mike take five minutes at the beginning of the show to establish characters and a story and then proceed to act out the store in the next 15 minutes. Join them as they make complete idiots of themselves while pretending to be Reginald Buckminster and Buck Drexler. Oh boy. You really don’t have to listen if you don’t want to. Apologies in advance.

024: Beer & Birdman

Here in episode 24 the two fellows talk about so many things. There is a lot of giggling as usual and it all starts when Mike drinks a virgin craft brewed lager. Let’s just say that he was not a fan of this terrible beer and will not be drinking beer again on the show anytime soon. Mike also talks about his new introduction to the nerdiest side of nerdery… comic books. Thats right folks. Mike has signed up to purchase physical media. Comic books. Not just any comic books though. the Marvel STAR WARS series! and a couple others. For the final portion of the show the couple discuss BIRDMAN! One of the most exciting films of 2014, Birdman gets a solid 4/5 stars from both of the hosts. Tune in to find out what Phil and Mike liked and didn’t like about the film.

Phil and Mike are so happy to be at it again. In this episode Mike reviews Swamp Pop Satsuma Fizz and finally gives us a bit of a metric to properly gauge his strange soda ratings. Satsuma Fizz or “Satty Fizz” as Mike calls it, comes in at a 3/5 stars. In the meat and potatoes of this episode the duo review the 2014 film John Wick. After much discussion Phil convinces Mike that John Wick is worthy of the elusive 5/5 stars. Mike will never say otherwise. The couple also dive in and talk about some of the movies coming out in 2015 that they are excited for. 2015 is going to be another fantastic year for movies and we can’t wait to watch most of them. L8r bellies!

022: Sundance 2015

Like it around 20 minutes or would you prefer to have 2 hour episodes? Let us know! The boys talk about their escapades at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. They talk about viewing Z for Zachariah and Meru. Sundance can’t be fully reported on without mentioning the croissants from the cafe.
