This week, Meg's back from flying a special assignment through time and space so we took a nice pleasure cruise to 1993 to catch another in our series of Stallone hubris pictures: Demolition Man!  We go over sexist seashells, Hunka-Chunka, and Wesley Snipes as one of the weirdest and most wonderfully dumb villains in film.

This week, we continue our ongoing obsession with everything Paul Newman ever did and watch his 1961 excuse for a vacation movie: Paris Blues with special guest Allison Dore! We go over why Ram Bowen (Paul Newman) is terrible and why Sidney Poitier decidedly isn't, parse out Gypsy the Cokehead guitar player and marvel at Louis Armstrong being Louis Armstrong.

This week, Dave and guest Meg Will Noye leave a time-machine jumpseat open for Elijah and head back to 1956 to have a look around and watch its highest-grossing movie: Cecil B. Demille's The Ten Commandments with our special guest Amanda Day!  We go over Russia calling out their ex-leader, how awful Alabama was and a year of comically awful Canadian plane crashes before going over the almost four-hour epic about Passover, during Passover! L'Chaim!

This week, Meg is on assignment so Kat Angus is guest Megging for our trip to 1928 to have a look around and watch the highest-grossing movie The Singing Fool with special guest Nigel Grinstead.  We go over whoopsie-doops antibiotic discoveries, pregnancy tests before the stick you pee on and then watch the most horrid thing we've sat through thus far for your entertainment.
