  3. Aaaawwwww, no Kofi again. Still a great podcast and Dyce and Anthony T are a welcome edition. I’ve never watched Community and I’ve been missing out on the latest Big Bang Theory episodes unfortunately. Lately I’ve been hooked on Sunny in Philadelphia thanks to Kofi’s recommendation from a few weeks back. Pretty entertaining show.

    • I see how it is!

      • This podcast would’nt be complete without you Rob.

  4. In the Hangover talk, you guys didn’t mention once that a big focus of the movie is going to be about Allen getting broke out of a mental institution

    • Is that confirmed? I wasn’t sure if that was just rumor/something the cast has joked about. I remember hearing about that early-on but I can’t remember anything official saying that recently. Doesn’t mean it’s not true but…

  6. Seven Psychopaths was an amazing movie. It was even better for me when I started imagining it as a Deadpool movie. It was filled with great meta humor and there were so many scenes that I could see as a straight from a well written Deadpool comic.

    • Haha wow, never thought about that approach being taken for a Deadpool movie! That would actually be pretty brilliant. Good call.

  7. Whoever said they want to take a kid to see Oz…do it! Seeing the amazement and wonder on their face is so worth it. And you guys nailed two pop culture points that I haven’t been able to verbalize…the first was Anthony Taormina’s description of this season of Community. Calling it a shell of it’s former self and placing the character’s in “Community-esque environments.” That reminded me of season 6 and 7 of Supernatural where I watched out of loyalty to the characters. And I’ll continue to watch Community because I’ve invested 3 years and I’m guessing this will be the final season. The other point someone made was about Oscar Diggs in the Oz movie. I didn’t like him either, I’m not a fan of womanizing a-holes…and when he made his turn, I wasn’t emotionally invested in him. However, like many, the final action scene made me forget about all that and turned me into a fan of film.

  8. God my anticipation is growing for when you discuss supernatural, so dont let us down. Maybe watch a few I suggested a few podcasts ago.

    I love both The Jeseleneck Offensive, and The Burn with Jeff Ross but the former more, Tosh.0s also gotten better recently.

    • I’m about half a dozen episodes in and enjoying it. Looking forward to an in-depth discussion too!

      • Dyce dyce baby, buh dididibuh duh buh dididibuh dah.

  9. For the box office battle, I saw an ad today saying Spring Breakers is a limited release in NY/LA this weekend. They also called it “the most talked about movie of the year.” I don’t believe them.

  11. I have an idea of a screen rant drinking game. You have to take a shot every time Ben Kendrick tries to think of a drinking game

    • Two for shots for every time Kofi Outlaw says “photage”
