Bonus: Evel Knievel (remastered)


As a bonus episode, in the lead up to our big themed month in September, here is a re-edited edition of the Evel Knievel episode I recorded with Tysto over a year ago. It's tighter, it's shorter but it still has that badass theme tune at the end. Enjoy! Note: We both say this pilot is terrible (Tysto more so than me) but listening back, we don't actually hate it that much...

Super Nerds (2000)


Martin and Jimmy talk Super Nerds, a sit-com, that would have aired on Comedy Central, created by and starring Patton Oswalt and Brian Posehn. We really wanted to like this but... it's not very good. We discuss stuff like just how badly the female characters are written, comedy foreigners and where we first knew the cast from. And Spaced. We like that show. This pilot replaces one called Stick Around (1977) that I felt we couldn't talk much about but I may still do in the future. Contains strong language.

Bonus: Fringe (pilot commentary)


Tysto joins me to talk through the pilot episode to the JJ Abrams show, Fringe. It's a good show and we both enjoy revisiting its first episode. We talk about the cast, the team behind the scenes, how some characters aren't served well by the script(s) and give spoilers for future episodes. I say in the commentary that we won't give spoilers but there were some things we just had to talk about. And by that point, we've already spoiled something anyway. If you are listening without watching the show, sorry about the brief gaps.  I can't edit those out or it would really be a commentary. Contains strong language.
