Dan Harmon joins Paul, June, and Jason to discuss the Michael Keaton classic Jack Frost in another LIVE episode recorded at Largo in Los Angeles! They talk about George Clooney’s connection to the movie, the snowman’s journey from bad dad to bad husband, the premise being identical to that of a horror movie, and the emotional roller coaster June was on while watching the movie. May you all have snow dads!

So, this Jack Frost didn't get a sequel (and why would it), but the other Jack Frost did. Well, that's certainly a thing.

I'm all for Harmontown crossing over to various Earwolf podcasts, it became one of my unmissable podcasts last year. Hopefully Jeff Davis will follow up on that promise to do Analyze Phish.

I'm going to call it: best episode ever.
It also warmed my heart that someone read some exerpts from Ebert's review of the film, which is one of the best bad movies reviews ever.

A few questions/notes:

1. One of the very last shots is following the dog out the door and starts going out into the street. Why? Where is he going? I don't understand this!!

2. I'm so confused by how everyone is dressed in this movie. It is a sno-pocalypse and every single person is wearing their jackets open, no gloves and no hats. I get it was on a studio, but Jesus Christ can they at least dress like they are cold?

3. Jack is always "alive" when he's the snowman. So when everyone goes to sleep or just is in the house during the day... Is he just standing around? Is he talking to himself? He's doing nothing.

4. That sleigh is crazy. Where or how would the family ever use that. Either way, did Keaton really expect his tiny dog to pull him to the game? And he clearly whips him. Why the fuck do you need to whip your dog?!

I just know I won't be able to go to bed tonight until someone posts the link to the Amazon.com review that Paul did not print out because he didn't want to upset June... Oh Well...

And for those of you who don't know... (And hopefully for the "Corrections & Omissions" segment in a future mini-episode ;) )

As of March 1989 Warner Bros.(Time Warner) owns DC Comics and since then every DC Comic Super Hero movie is released by Warner Bros. Pictures... Even "Green Lantern" :P ( http://en.wikipedia....ime_Warner_unit http://en.wikipedia....ed_on_DC_Comics )

My guess is that since they own the rights to Batman and Superman it didn't cost them anything to put the Batman-headed Superman action figure in the film...



P.S.: This episode was gold!!!

I too will back you up on that call and I'm only twenty or so minutes into the episode. The Clooney/Keaton stuff blew my mind, as well as the connections of bad ice puns. Harmon's the best HDTGM guest ever right now, just because his insight and philosophy is so hilarious and digs so deep into the tone of the film.

And of course, June is always mind-blowing with things she discovers.

That first "second opinion" was really upsetting.

Dan Harmon fits this show perfectly. His outrage and sarcasm duel with Jason was amazing and his reaction to the first second opinion tied a nice bow on the absurdity.

Zouks with the shameful self outing of X-men lore. Though I think it was Cassandra Nova that wiped out Genosha with Sentinels. And now I have outed myself.

The best collection of second opinions of all time. You could make a dour German art film from any one of them.

I am kind of on board with June, I thought the first 40 minutes were decent.. This episode was amazing by the way.

I'm only 5 minutes in and already the pure energy and passion the hosts and Harmon are bringing to this is fantastic.

Edit: Holy shit, June.

And to think that that WASN'T the one that Paul thought was the most upsetting. You'd think that this was Darren Aronofsky's "Jack Frost" or something.
