This lousy Smarch weather is not conducive to watching Christmas movies, guys. We just didn’t have the spirit in us this week. But fear not, because we have another Stocking Stuffer ready to go!
On this episode, Joe and Bradford dip into the madcap holiday antics of Ed Edd’n Eddy‘s first holiday special:”Jingle Jingle Jangle”. How hard is it to be selfless at Christmas? Why are everyone’s own holiday customs so weird? How many Yuletide puns can one cartoon reasonably stand? Listen in and find out!
Happy Redboxing Day, gang! It’s that magical time of year when all of last year’s Christmas movies are now popping up in your local DVD dispensers! This week, we stall for as long as we can to keep from discussing the bleak comedy wasteland that is Bad Santa 2. Why bring back Bad Santa now? Who asked for a man-sized Thurman Merman? How does Willie keep getting laid? These questions and more answered in this week’s episode!
Welcome to our very first mini-episode, which we’re calling Stocking Stuffers!
Stocking Stuffers are Christmas Creeps in bite-size form. Each one will be dedicated to a holiday episode of your favorite TV shows! In our very first edition, Joe and Bradford discuss the King of the Hill season two episode “The Unbearable Blindness of Laying”. Hank goes blind at Christmas, and only his mom’s new beau can help fix him.
Gather around the dining table, friends! This week, guest Drew Meyer joins us to have a surprisingly level-headed conversation about the 1994 Denis Leary/Kevin Spacey comedy The Ref. What was supposed to be a shorter episode spins out of control as we keep finding little details that demand to be discussed. From the screenwriting craft to the mid-90s suburban malaise, The Ref is full of fun little cinematic surprises.
Crappy New Year, everybody! We’re kicking off 2017 with a desperate plea to the heavens to save us from this garbage planet. Instead, the heavens delivered A Cosmic Christmas, a Canadian holiday special from 1977 about aliens seeking the true meaning of Christmas. Hold onto your geese, folks, cuz shit’s about to get cosmic!
Merry Christmas, dear listeners! This year, we splurged and got you a jumbo-sized episode about everyone’s favorite Tim Allen Christmas movie! (And apparently so did everyone else…) Bradford joins us once again to pick apart the kid-friendly irony-laden body horror of The Santa Clause! Also, we open the floor to listener questions and take a look back over our podcast year. Thanks for listening, gang. We’ll see you in the new year!
Happy Holidays, gang! We’re changing things up this week. Instead of ripping apart one Christmas movie, we hopped into the old front-wheel drive sleigh and rode around town ogling Christmas lights, discussing traditional holiday pageants, and cracking wise about the Elf on the Shelf. In the show’s second half, we preview some of the shenanigans we have planned for next year!
