June, Paul and Jason need a side podcast called, "What are those crazy millennials up to?"

Big ups to Anna Faris(wheel) for nearly out June-ing June. I have a faint suspicion alcohol may have been involved.

Is Anna Faris drunk or is this Anna base level?

I definitely don't have anything that will change June's mind about this movie. But here are some dumb little things that stuck out to me.

The lead into the bowling song is everyone in the bowling alley yelling "shoot the ball!". Has that ever been said while bowling before or since?

It already feels a little weird that the T-Birds are also on the football team. But based on the fact that they are pushing Sid Caesar around on the tackling sled they are either offensive or defensive linemen. I don't think Rydell won a single game that year.

When Michael is playing the piano for the talent show rehearsals it is the laziest fake playing I have ever seen in a movie. He literally just keeps his hands above the same keys the entire time and lifts his hands up and down. And speaking of him being the piano player. Was it not an issue that he disappeared right before the talent show?

When Stephanie goes into her fugue state during the talent show she imagines she is singing a duet with the Mystery Rider. When she is done the crowd goes wild. But what were they seeing exactly? Presumably just her half of the song.

I generally don't mind Anna Faris, and I haven't listened to her podcast, but her appearance on this rare in-studio episode is part Cameron-Esposito-screaming-everything-at-me grating and part Natasha-Leggero-having-nothing-to-say boring and that is unfortunate.

Speaking of Daniel Tiger, someone should have said to Anna Faris, "It's almost time to stop, so choose one more drink to drink. That was fun, but now YOU'RE DONE!!!"

On youth today being post-virginity:
I don't know if they are so much post-virginity, as the focus of youth activity has shifted from the secret to the public. When I was younger, everything interesting that one wished to do was essentially secret. You had to keep the really good stuff from Mom and Dad. We didn't need terms like "Netflix and chill" because broadcasting our sexcapades was something that never would have occurred to us. I literally thought Netflix and chill meant watching Netflix and relaxing, until it was recently explained to me by a younger person. These days, nothing is worth doing unless it is photographed and made public. "Pics or it didn't happen!" While I can't say for certain how this is related to the shifting attitude towards virginity because I'm not swimming in the shark pool of teenage-hood anymore, I would be VERY surprised if there was no connection whatsoever.

Guys, no need to bash Anna! This is turning into the controversial Can't Stop the Music/Cameron Esposito discussion all over again! Please be fair to everyone who guests on the show!

A great episode. Anna may have just been tired, as I believe they recorded an episode of her podcast before this one.

Just one omission: No Christopher McDonald movie should be discussed with out at least a mention of him. He played Goose McKenzie, one of the T-birds in this one. He went only to play memorable villains in such films as Happy Gilmore, Fatal Instinct, Dutch, and Dirty Work.

Again great episode, guys.

Yeah, but that's not really the same thing as being trans.

edit: I stand by this one.

When I read who was the guest I just knew the boards would hate it.

Ack! So conflicted! I am drowning under a mountain of grading and I need to get it done by this afternoon to ensure a nice weekend, but I really really want to blow it off to listen to the ep, particularly reading all the comments so far. Save me some juicy C+Os, guys!

I think being a little dangerous about a guest is OK if it's wrapped in a joke. Especially on a board for a show where they joke about Matthew Broderick's soul being gone and his life force being sapped by his wife. I can't say any more about the subject without just outright insulting a previous guest, so I won't.
