This week we hit the redial button on the time Machine for our 5th trip to 1986, this time to see it's big number two movie "Crocodile" Dundee (it's his nickname, you see) with guest comedian Sara Hennesey! We go over what train accidents, Maine and cocaine can do to a fella and then go over a movie made of setups for Paul Hogan to look cool in.

This week we leave the time machine in the garage and take the time bicycles on a little hop back to 2014 to have a look around and watch it's highest grossing movie Transformers: Age of Extinction with special guest Sam Burns.  We go over Putin's plunders, the plane that were hard to find and then are assaulted in the brain by a movie where a giant truck robot shoots Fraser Crane then fights and rides a dinosaur that is also a robot.

This week we underestimate the yield of our time machine's nuclear engine and blast into 1954 to look around and watch its highest grossing movie: Rear Window.  We talk about supreme court decisions of some import, a giant explosion that sorta created Godzilla and then go over the suprisingly kick-ass Rear Window with fromsuperheroes.com creator/writer Diana McCallum.

This week we invite Andrew Ivimey from fromsuperheroes.com to growl ridiculously into the time vortex and stop off in 2008 to look around and watch the highest grossing movie: The Dark Knight.  We talk about space, George "terrifically unpopular" Bush and the boring but shitty Harper moves before going into an excellent movie: The Dark Knight.

This week we crashed the time machine in 1960 trying to take pictures of Russia and wound up flying back on some Unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine after having a look around and watching that year's highest grossing movie: Swiss Family Robinson.  We talk about the right to a 15 cent slice of pie, the space dogs that didn't explode, the many Russians who did, and a guy getting abducted getting off the bus from work where you get to cheer for the kidnappers for a change.  Then we talk about a movie where a family of mechanical engineers build a fantastic/deadly Island B&B and defend it from what we have decided were Kryptonian pirates.
