Episode 52: HIGHLANDER

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!!

Topics include the quickening, the gathering, the prize, the swords, and the rampant 1980's homophobia.

Episode 50: SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE

On our fiftieth episode spectacular, Lyndsey pulls a switch-a-roo when she realizes her VHS copy of Matilda has gone missing. Instead, we watched Nora Ephron's 1993 romantic comedy blockbuster Sleepless in Seattle, starring Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, and Bill Pullman. Topics include the heart-wrenching performance of Bill Pullman, inevitable You've Got Mail comparisons, love at first sight, and the morality of Meg Ryan's actions. Commercials on the tape include Hook, A League of Their Own, and a twofer soundtrack spotlight.

Quack! Quack! Quack! From the depths of Sean's VHS collection, wading into the open beak of the Tapeheads' increasingly unreliable VCR, comes 1992's The Mighty Ducks, starring Emilio Estevez as Gordon Bombay, the most reckless asshole to ever coach a pee-wee hockey team. Co-starring Joshua Jackson, Shaun Weiss, Lane Smith, Marguerite Moreau, and Joss Ackland as mysterious (imaginary?) hockey guru Hans (seriously, he may be a ghost in this film). Quack! Quack! Quack!

D2 may be the superior movie, but we really can't say at this time.
