    Episode 175 - Ultraviolet: LIVE!

    Apologies for the weird comment order. There was no way for me to merge the two threads and preserve the "Comments" link on the episode page, so I had to move over the C&Os from the original thread instead.
  2. Mikal Cronin (musician, Hollywood Handbook and Best Show favorite) submitted a plugs theme, but I don't think it was ever used on the show. Not sure it counts but Tenacious D recorded a plugs theme during their CBB episode and, as promised, it was used on the next episode.

    Movies for NYC?

    The official HDTGM Twitter account announced the movies this morning: Superman IV and Freejack.
  4. Looks like the surveys used on this episode were conducted via Walt's site back in 2015. Those surveys don't include any of the categories Kickpuncher mentioned, however, so I guess I was wrong about a follow-up episode. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I believe she's checking the main show account.
  5. They have 26 non-movie episodes (plus Stitcher Premium exclusives) to fill during their year-long contract, so they might be planning a Part II. Hell, Walt's data is evergreen, so they could have recorded it immediately after this one.

    Episode 511 - Morzouksnick Interruption

    And the one where Scott interviewed Elvis Costello, that ends with a speechless Sarah Silverman saying "YOU ARE AN IDIOT!"

    Trailer Talk

    They're trying to capitalize on the success of the rebooted video game franchise. Here's a side-by-side comparison of the trailer and footage from the 2013 game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gcGxLwC29I Edited to add: The game reboot was intended to divorce Lara Croft from her grossly objectified/male gaze-y history and, to that end, they hired Rhianna (daughter of Terry) Pratchett as lead writer of the series. Their attempts were not altogether successful. In a post-Force Awakens, post-Jessica Jones, post-Wonder Woman world, I imagine studios are scrambling to get on the Strong Female Protagonist hype train.

    Homework - The Matrix (1999)

    Cameron co-hosted 100+ episodes of a sci-fi/action movie podcast called Wham Bam Pow. She's beyond qualified to discuss more than lesbian-centric movies.

    Episode 507 - Popcorn Costume

    Mission accomplished!

    Episode 507 - Popcorn Costume

    I love that the name "Chef Kevin" has apparently been adopted by everyone at Earwolf. I hate that Chef Kevin didn't capture any photos of Paul and Rhea losing their shit after Tawny made the Grape Lady noise.

    Episode 170 - Bratz

    PSA: For more info about Carry A. Nation, the most recent episode of Criminal (one of my favorite podcasts) covers her bizarre life story in detail.
  13. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eU8x9C0vg8s Ladies and gentlemen, Mandell Maughan.
  14. In case you guys aren't following Paul on Twitter, the Garbage Pail Kids cast is coming out of the woodwork. And later… Sounds like Blake is going to have a lot of material for this week's article. Edited to add: I think they just booked Chrissy Teigen for one of the November live shows via the magic of Twitter!

    Musical Mondays - Week 18 - Gigi

    If y'all get bored over the weekend, you can watch my "alternate universe where I participate in Musical Mondays" pick: the to Rags to Riches. It's sort of a 60s jukebox musical about a bunch of orphan girls getting adopted by a rich guy, starring post-Little Shop of Horrors pre-Martin Tisha Campbell, Bill Maher, and Joseph Bologna (who sadly just died this week.) My sisters recorded this during its initial broadcast in 1987 and played it on repeat until the VHS tape wore out, so it's been seared into my brain. This experience is perfectly replicated by watching the ghastly VHS rip on YouTube. If you want more of the show in pristine DVD quality, you can find the complete boxed set on Amazon (using HDTGM's affiliate code to give the gang a cut.) Enjoy/I'm sorry.
  16. Karen also has another podcast with Chris Fairbanks called Do You Need A Ride?, which they record while giving comedians rides to/from the airport or to gigs around town. It's been reduced to a monthly show (since Karen has been busy with TV gigs and touring My Favorite Murder, and Chris had hip replacement surgery) but there are a lot of great episodes in the archive.

    Episode 112 - Footlight Parade (w/ Bryan Cogman)

    The reason the poll remains open after Amy calls it is because (unfortunately) there's no way for us to close the poll without closing the thread altogether. Letting the discussion continue is more important than a "clean" vote count.

    Southland Tales (2006)

    On Minisode 163.5, Paul said the following: The end.

    Psychomania (1973)

    To avoid causing headaches for anyone at Earwolf, please don't link to streaming movies from questionably legal sources. Thank you!

    Episode 166 - Timecop: LIVE!

    I usually dread the audience participation segment of live shows (thanks to dudes asking dumb questions and trying to one-up the professional comedians) but the people of Austin killed it.* My working theory is that all of Largo's seating is technically considered a balcony due to some arcane building code, and the entire LA audience is therefore balcony people. Gross. * After editing out the guy taylor anne mentioned in the last thread

    Episode 166 - Timecop: LIVE!

    I just watched all of Twin Peaks in preparation for the new series, and there's during the second season (1990) where Ben Horne goes on a bender and watches old home movies of his family breaking ground on the Great Northern Hotel. Then again, nothing died except his future business prospects.

    Episode 165.5 - Minisode 165.5

    I don't have any visibility into how the hotline is set up, but I assume this is just a product of how its purpose has evolved over time. I recommend tweeting about it to @paulscheer, as he's active and obviously receptive to listener feedback.

    Paul tweeted this a few minutes ago… …proving once again that I am the world's greatest visionary.

    Episode 165.5 - Minisode 165.5

    You guys have my blessing if you want to create a new thread for each movie you cover. Musical Mondays is one of the best things to come out of this community in recent memory.
