  • Ep 149 | Miami Connection: Part 1

    14 JUN. 2024 · Ninjas! Bikers! Orphans! Hit songs! Most movies give you only one, two, or possibly three of the above, but only one film created in human history has the chutzpah to cram all FOUR of them in plus a lot of other meaningless stuff. That film is the subject of today's Motion Picture Men episode, the hit 1980s action flick Miami Connection In part 1 of 2 the former BTBs go through the cast of this film, none of which have ever worked in Hollywood before or since its release. They also talk the cult hit's rediscovery in the aughts, producer/director/actor/Taekwondo black belt Y.K. Kim's unintelligible but heartfelt dialogue, and of course dive into the first half of the movie, which is a delightful romp through Florida

  • Ep 148 | Online (2013): Part 2

    7 JUN. 2024 · This week, the Motion Picture Men bring you the breathtaking conclusion of Online (2013), a film that boasts an empty kitchen island as one of its main set pieces. Will John's deceitful ways come back to haunt him, or will he right the ship in time to rescue the marriage he doesn't care about?  Brian, Van, and Spencer talk about the movie's wild misunderstanding of human life, the world's weirdest business meeting, and a private investigator who should have been the main character. Later, Spencer introduces a much different movie for the podcast's next round as the Motion Picture Men!

    31 MAY. 2024 · The Boob Tube Boys have again stumbled into a magical abandoned movie theater and emerged as the Motion Picture Men! Van, Brian, and Spencer often watch films of questionable quality together; why not join them?

  • Ep 146 | TMNT: "Corporate Raiders from Dimension X" and "Leatherhead Meets the Rat King"

    24 MAY. 2024 · The BTBs make a return trip to the world of their childhood as they cover two more episodes of the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. They'll encounter several notable characters along the way including the return of Leatherhead, the wisecracking, cajun stereotype of an alligator. But there's more than that as we also find hockey mask wearing vigilante Casey Jones (who just likes to break things) and the mysterious (and filthy) Rat King! So put on your colorful bandana, whip out your various weapons, eat a whole pizza, and tune in for a wild green ride

  • Ep 145 | Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: "Leatherhead: Terror of the Swamp"

    10 MAY. 2024 · It's a monumental moment in the history of the Boob Tube Boys as the one and only Leatherhead, the gator who knows a good jambalya when he sees it, makes an actual appearance on the show the boys are covering. That's right it's not just Van or Brian bringing him up for no reason, he's actually here! That's all because Van has selected the animated 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, one of the few shows that captivated all three tubers as children. These are the pizza slingin', sass having, turtle teens that catapulted the franchise into the stratosphere. We learn about the humble origins of the reptiles, how every voice actor in the show was also a voice actor in Metal Gear Solid, and just how much fun it is to do both a Cajun accent and make alligator jokes

  • Ep 144 | Happy Days: "My Favorite Orkin"

    3 MAY. 2024 · Robin Williams may have been a talented performer with a long career full of highlights, but this Happy Days episode (which was one his first Hollywood appearances) leaves a bit to be desired Apparently Ritchie is convinced he saw a flying saucer but no one will believe him! The good news is he was ultimately right, and the pilot of that saucer just so happens to be looking for him. Of course the pilot is revealed to be Mork from Ork (of Mork and Mindy fame), who is an alien with a weird sense of humor and a lot of zany energy The story takes a turn for the worse when Mork reveals he'll be taking Ritchie back to Ork to experiment on, but fortunately for our hero he's got a fighting ace up his sleeve...

    11 ABR. 2024 · It's finally time for the Boob Tube Boys to cover the only sitcom that once had all of America asking, "did I do that?!" Family Matters coverage begins with a bang, as Steve Urkel infiltrates a local gang with a surprisingly talented artist in its midst Brian, Spencer, and Van discuss their childhood hours spent with Family Matters, how Urkel's antics hijacked a show that was supposed to be centered around Reginald Vel Johnson, and what sorts of magazines Mother Winslow was reading in 1991.

    4 ABR. 2024 · Quantum Leap leaps right back into your ears as the BTBs take one more trip into the past alongside hologram man Al and handsome Frankenstein man Sam. This time around Sam finds himself stuck not in the body of a glam rocker, nor in the body of one of those women, nor in the fleshy meat tomb of a gangster or something. No this time around he's in the body of one of man's closest relatives... a chimpanzee! Sam's mission is to save the chimp he's inside of (eww that sounded gross) by making the chimp the best astronaut it can be. And yes, that's the real plot of this episode. So quit monkeying around and listen in!
