  1. Superhero butt shots, bat nipples, and freeze puns are all up for discussion on this week's How Did This Get Made? The Nerdist podcast's Matt Mira and Marvel's Jesse Falcon join us to chat about a movie that easily can be seen as a really long action figure commercial, Batman & Robin! So Stay cool and be sure to winterize your podcast ears!
  2. Even if you're still stuck in the credits of Cool as Ice, you probably know you're in for something crazy! We watched it and invited Brian Huskey to join us in reveling in this relic of the early 90s. Weird biker gangs, inexplicable love stories, and the Witness Protection Program flesh out what is essentially a feature-length hip hop music video starring Vanilla Ice. What does Vanilla think of the movie? Learn as Rob Van Winkle joins the crew for the final few minutes to give insight into the stunts, the sets, and the jargon that has stood the test of time.
  3. Patton Oswalt is an expert writer, performer, and cartoon rat, but can he get Mike out of his nautical emergency? Find out this week on Mike Detective. Oh, and if five minutes a week isn't enough for you, you can find Mike on Twitter @MikeDetective.
  4. There is no tiptoeing around it, this movie blows! Not even a French Peter Dinklage in cornrows can save this non-comedy about a full-sized dwarf dealing with his wife's pregnancy. Not sold yet? Neither is Dave Holmes who joined us in watching this Sundance "Official Selection." Check out Tiptoes if you haven't yet, and pick up a brand new How Did This Get Made? shirt!
  5. The Smurfs is a movie about an ad executive who is struggling with a pregnant girlfriend and a big assignment at work. Am I missing anything? Paul F. Tompkins joins the gang to discuss this kid's movie and its many flaws: The unnecessarily complicated language, the blatant animal abuse, the awkward casting of Tim Gunn, even the terrible trailers are up for judgment. We introduce the first ever Second Opinions segment, and as always close it up with You've Got Mail. If you've got a child's heart, or had to drag your children to see this movie, you'll enjoy this episode!

  7. While it is impossible to replace Scott Aukerman, Paul F. Tompkins does a better job than any. On this episode he does the whole Paul-F-Tompkins-thing until his grandma's get there to teach us a little bit about Paul's upbringing. Paul also brings on his friend from the highly underrated (in this nerds opinion) show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Kaitlin Olson, who teaches us a bit about working with a depressed alcoholic version of the Gentleman Tompkins.

  10. Happy April Fools! The joke is on us as today’s co-host Nick Kroll joins Scott to talk about Kroll Show season 2, sandwiches, and showcase his Christopher Walken impression as they wait for Jon Hamm to arrive.

And if that’s not enough for you, we are introduced to El Chupacabra’s brother El Chupacabro!
  11. Is Aubrey a piano prodigy or a stripper? Is it all real or a piece of creative writing? Is this the worst movie Lindsay Lohan has ever been in or flat out the worst movie ever? These are just a few of the questions I Know Who Killed Me left us with. Ken Marino is our victim this week and he helps Paul, June, and Jason piece together the plot, characters, and ridiculous symbols that make this horror thriller such a bomb.
