This week, we jump the time machine over a bridge and head back to 1977 to watch it's second highest-grossing movie Smokey and the Bandit with comedian Dylan Gott! We go over a pardon, a book king, and the hillbilliest dern thing you ever did (garbled)!
This week, the curse is broken as Dave, Meg and guest comedian Craig Fay fire up the time machine to head back to 1990 to talk about Russian McDonald's and that year's number two Big Gross Movie: Home Alone! Mostly we marvel at how fragile we are as we squirmed more at falling on ice than being set on fire.
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 saddle up our time horses and head back to 1991 to have another look around and see its number two movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves with comedian Shawn Hogan.

We go over the undying asshole John McClane, Jeremy Irons' onesie and other delights.
We're back! Dave and Meg have been away because their frail bodies failed them, but thanks to modern science they're back on their feet to go over all our favorite number ones and let you know how the show is gonna work now that we're moving on to the second highest grossing movies and revisiting years. It's fun! We're back! And so on.
This week Meg is on assignment so Will Noye is in her timeseat for a trip to 1992 to continue in our series of Sylvester Stallone Hubris specials, but little did we know Stop or My Mom Will Shoot would work as well as it did. It's dumb, it's bad, but wow everyone came to play. Also we go insane.
This week we park the time machine and hop in a memory sink to get back to 2011, have a look around and go over its highest grossing movie: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 with habitual Potter guest Nile Séguin! We go over uprisings, earthquakes, spaceships and new heroes before diving back into the magical school where no-one should logically survive.
This week, we switch the time machine to RCS to stop the spin Armstrong style before Heading back to 1966 to have a look around and watch its highest-grossing movie The Bible: In The Beginning which yes, is real and yes, is exactly what you think it is! We go over the Gemini spacemen, Vietnam as an extension of President Johnson's underpants tackle and then yell about this ridiculous movie.
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!

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.
This week Meg is away so we revisited one of the finest auteurs in bad cinema and checked out 1986s Cobra starring Sylvester Stallone, his ego, and some actors I guess. With Special guest Craig Fay Dave goes over one of the laziest, uncooked movies ever made that is still somehow watchable.
This week we unwisely fill the time machine with hydrogen and float back to 1937 to have a look around and watch its highest-grossing movie: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with special guest Lucy Gervais! We go over Mae West's cheeky puppet innuendos, an air disaster, several other disasters and then chew through the obviously problematic but wicked pretty cartoon made by moustaches, amphetamines and aaaaaaall the cigarettes.
This week we pack our aluminium time tubes with yellow cake and fly on back to 2003 to have a look around and then review it's highest-grossing movie The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. With special guest Blayne Smith we go over the unfortunate events of 2003 and then tussle with Tolkien, Meg's hatred of B-list Hobbits and the fat-shaming of Samwise Gamgee.
This week to celebrate our hundredth episode we got nostalgic and maybe self-indulgent and invited guest comedian Alex Wood to time vortex thingie back to 1996 and review the movie Dave and Meg conceived the show over: Star Trek First Contact. We sing, we laugh, we posit old-timey borgs and just generally have a grand time. Thanks for listening.
This week we armour up the time machine and slide back to 1940 to have a llok at the war and catch the highest-grossing movie: Rebecca with special guest Ben Beauchemin. We go over a very disconcerting winning streak for Hitler and chat about the crazy drunkard who went against him and then review a movie that switches protagonists halfway through and features a used car salesman/cousin/love interest?
This week we invite frequent time flyer Ryan Horwood back to take a trip to 1956 to catch this podcast's favorite actor in his boxing movie: Somebody Up There Likes Me. We go over the movie and are amazed to find Paul Newman can make old filmed play black and white boxing nonsense watchable as all hell.
This week we saddle up a time elephant and safari our way back to 1950 to have a look around and watch its highest-grossing movie: King Solomon's Mines with special guest Jennifer McAuliffe. We go over the Korean and Cold wars because we have to, then go over a tale of some people who wanted to go somewhere and then did and there were lots of animals and that's it, really.
This week Meg is back pulling time levers to get us back to 1934 to have a look around and watch it's highest-grossing movie: Viva Villa! with special guest, writer and tweetist Karen Geier. We go over the dirt stormy criminal shooty child exploiting nightmare of 1934, then ponder the layers of wrong and bad that make up Viva Villa!
This week, Meg is on assignment so Shawn Hogan is here to reload the time rods and bring us back to 1952 to find out what it was like and watch its highest grossing movie: The Greatest Show on Earth! With special guest Lukas Stark the mystery entertainer we go over the awful, awful year of dead kings and smog clouds before going over an ode to the deceased Ringling brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, which should have closed good riddance. This movie is a horrific clown show that almost broke us, Jimmy Stewart playes a murder clown who never takes his makeup off, not even the weirdest part. Tune in!
This week, Meg's away so 1964 guest Ryan Horwood and I flew back to catch the second highest-grossing movie of 1964, the misogynist masterpiece that needs a long talk about consent while serving prison time: Goldfinger. Marvel as James Bond is drunk, terrible at his job, and repeatedly captured! Also he's a sex criminal.
This week Guest Meg Sam Burns and Special guest Rebecca Reeds man the time pumps on a trip to 1986 to see our Podcast's hero's academy award winning performance in Martin Scorcese's pool movie sequel The Color of Money. Tiny Tom Cruise spazzes out like six times. It's Great.
This week we maple up the time machine and scoot back to 2006 with special bilingual guest Hunter Collins to catch the highest-grossing Canadian film until 2010: Bon Cop Bad Cop. It's super great if you are a bilingual person who has lived in both Toronto and Montreal and have a background in hockey controversies.
