    Episode 458 - There's Always A New Woah

    I agree. You can just listen all day without ever having to tap +15 to skip ads--it's very liberating. And a yearly subscription comes out to $3/month. That's hours and hours of content for the price of a jar of peanut butter. Even if you sign up just for Who Charted, it's about 50 cents/hour to keep Howard on the air. It's so worth it.

    Episode 384 - New Heights in Terrible Enunciation

    Ha! I'm flattered. About once a year someone sees my username and recognizes it from the books. That was the first time I heard someone actually reference the character in yeeeears.

    Episode 384 - New Heights in Terrible Enunciation

    People on the Earwolf subreddit loved this ep. These forums seem to be dead :-\

    Missing/lost episodes?

    Hey gang! I'm trying to go back and re-listen to the whole Who/Two Charted back catalog and I've found a gap in the Stitcher archives. The shows between 2015-04-03 and 2015-04-24 (Who Charted 227 and 228, Two Charted 166 and 167) are missing. Are these shows lost for eternity? Might anyone have saved them? I loved the spring 2015 shows (that's when I discovered the show), so this is a bummer.

    Missing/lost episodes?

    This was in the email, btw: Episode 229 ("Leading Love Man," April 22nd 2015) is missing from the archive. The episode 175 upload ("Tutstep," April 9th 2014) is incomplete. The recording ends halfway through the show.

    Missing/lost episodes?

    Thank you! I sent an email to howl support about other episodes.

    Kulap is leaving the show

    The episodes with guest hosts (April Richardson, Natasha Leggero, Emily V. Gordon, Ele Woods) are among my favorites. Ku's great but the show can go on. I hope it does.

    Episode 374 - Superman Cleanse

    I was looking forward to Ben's return (it's been years) but Howard seems kind of cranky and subdued.

    EPISODE 260 — OLO!!!

    What I don't understand are the dummies listening to these covers. Did they hear there's a hit song called "Hello" but they don't know who sings it and they're going through every search result? Are they already bored of the Adele version? Do they have low self-esteem and don't think they deserve to hear the original?

    EPISODE 261 — Genesis Jones

    Here's that Rob Lowe SNL sketch:

    EPISODE 255 — An All New Era

    Unless the guest is already a fan of the show or friends with the gang, asking them to bring in "homework" could be awkward.

    What IS "Who Charted"?

    Not only that, but how much time is he going to spend checking this forum for new replies? Just listening to an episode is the most efficient and convenient option.

    EPISODE 241.5 — 7/17/15 TWO CHARTED 180

    Whoever writes the episode descriptions is killing me with the misused apostrophes: buddy's instead of buddies, Chartist's instead of Chartists, etc. Please don't kill this Chartist!
  14. I don't buy into the "seeing violence ---> being violent" thing, but I was 9 when the first one came out and I immediately started thinking about homemade nunchucks. With a nice home workshop at our disposal, my cousin and I took a wooden closet rod thing, cut it into foot-long pieces and connected them with small link chains. (We were harmless kids, but in other hands they could have done real damage.) I'd never seen nunchucks before TMNT, so the parents groups kind of had a point there.
  15. Not just a different actress, but a way hotter one. (That must have been one of the studio notes, right after "less violence.") Kind of disappointed in Jason's recent lack of deviant sexual comments during their commentary.

    Furious 7

    Adam Scott is back in town (he was on the Adam Carolla show yesterday). Maybe we'll get this one soon.

    EPISODE 112 — Jupiter Ascending

    Shortly after her entrance I IMDb'ed the actress who played Kalique (Tuppence Middleton) and spent the rest of the movie feeling sorry for her--and not just for being in this bomb. Pretty, in her twenties, English, with the last name Middleton: How many millions of times has she been asked if she's related to those other Middletons? (She's not.) Btw, if you're a hot English girl, you can get away with a silly first name like Tuppence or Suki.

    Eyes Wide Shut

    I don't know how that question mark got in there. Kidman looks preposterously beautiful when she's slow-dancing with the silver fox guy at the ball, statement, period. I don't think we'll ever see another massive project kept as tightly guarded as Eyes Wide Shut was. For the longest time, the speculation was that Cruise and Kidman played married psychiatrists who were sleeping with each other's patients. Other than Cruise's character having an M.D., that was totally off base. Neither does it seem possible these days that a director could basically hold two of the world's biggest stars hostage.

    EPISODE 112 — Jupiter Ascending

    Well, mathematic principles in the Ukraine aren't recognized in the U.S. And there are no jobs between professor and maid. This part is not worth questioning.

    Eyes Wide Shut

    Yes! Since when do doctors have badges that they can flash like they're FBI agents? Kidman looks preposterously beautiful when she's slow-dancing with the silver fox guy at the ball? Truly fantastic lighting in that scene.

    EPISODE 112 — Jupiter Ascending

    DUDE: IT'S "MEE-LA." NOT "MY-LA." I don't understand how someone hears three people pronouncing a name one way and refuses to go along with it.

    EPISODE 111.5 — Minisode 111.5

    You can't be serious. Streaming-only is fine for TV but it's simply not an option if you're into movies. Only about 15% of my DVD queue is available to stream, and I've got everything on there: indie, foreign, mainstream, documentaries, Oscar-winners and Razzie-winners, blockbusters and bombs, from the silent era through 2015.

    Jawbreaker (1999)

    I love my dead gay son! Julie Benz looked hot in this. Otherwise, terrible. It tries SO HARD to edgy and relevant. I don't think it has much HDTGM potential, however.

    Mortdecai (2015)

    And it didn't even earn the R! I think it barely cleared the two-"fuck" bar. I watched this only as a Gwyneth Paltrow completist. I really hope it's not the reason Pepper Potts wasn't in the Avengers sequel. This is quietly one of the most baffling movies in recent memory. Who is this for? Johnny Depp has been in blatant paycheck mode for years, but why did Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany and Jeff Goldblum sign on? There was a really great Vulture post trying to figure all this out. What the Hell Is Mortdecai?

    1981 and 2005

    If they ever picked out individual scenes, I'd nominate one from Hitch (2005). Will Smith takes Eva Mendes to Ellis Island and surprises her with what he thinks is a unique and thoughtful gift: he found her great-great-uncle's (or whoever) signature on the new immigrant sign-in sheet thing. She starts crying. Because she's touched? No, because he was a serial killer and a great source of shame in her family. ??? There are endless romantic-gesture-gone-wrong options. That's what they chose?
