    Episode 56 — Nothing But Trouble

    I don't think a Sandler movie would work. His movies are knowingly stupid, and the best HDTGM eps are about movies that seem blissfully unaware of their stupidity/horribleness.

    Episode 56 — Nothing But Trouble

    I heard an abundance of disgust, disdain and general bewilderment.

    Episode 6 — Analyze Fish Pt. 2

    Ahhh, this was great! I hope they keep drifting even farther from the original premise. The Phish stuff was great, but I love the idea of swapping out hosts and getting into even more tangentially-related subjects. RE: The USS Indianapolis - they got the date wrong, but otherwise Quint's account is apparently pretty close. Another thing they got wrong was that a distress signal was sent, but it was ignored by 3 different listening posts. The Navy denied a signal was ever sent and it didn't come to light until decades later when declassified documents were finally released to the public. So I imagine Spielberg was going on the best info he had available at the time.

    You should, it is definitely one of his best. The 2 kids are really fantastic.

    I've always suspected this, but I'm happy to receive outside confirmation.

    Oh, and I love that Icona Pop song. It's got Charli XCX on vocals, and she is awesome.

    FYI, Emma Hemming (Bruce Willis' wife) is apparently Guyanese.

    Episode 5 — Analyze Fish

    Harris was on Whooch this week and he & Howard were joking about doing another one where Harris tries to get Howard to like Phish. I did not get the impression that any more Jaws episodes were in the works I was clearly wrong. Thank goodness!

    Then prepare to die! That came out more menacing than I intended...

    Also, I agree with Wittels that Life Aquatic is unfairly maligned.

    And once again all is right with the world.

    Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

    Big Trouble is very knowing and wink-y. That's what makes it great. If they wanted to do a serious HDTGM, like they did with Crank or Punisher, then yes, that would be a fun episode (especially if it featured John Carpenter and Kurt Russell).

    Episode 114.5 — 2/8/13 Two Charted 53

    Ahh, that makes sense. They had similar music-clearance issues with Daria. The first time I watched it on DVD I thought, 'Wait, this isn't right...'. I did catch some Jackass episodes on initial broadcast, but I guess it was such a long time ago I just don't remember much about them. Other than the butt-stapling, toilet-launching, etc. Oh, and Bam Margera assaulting his dad on the toilet. I also remember that.

    I was completely unaware that Jackass played music of any kind, other than that infamous theme music.

    Episode 55.5 — Minisode 55.5

    I'd write something meaningful, but Paul read my comment from last week and my head exploded. I hope to reassemble it in time for Nothing But Trouble, which I have a very vague memory of seeing and not enjoying.

    Episode 114.5 — 2/8/13 Two Charted 53

    I definitely felt some folks made it personal with Steve-O, which was unnecessary. I took issue with some of the things he said, as I find the show he is currently hosting to be morally questionable, but I don't think he's a bad person. His voice is pretty rough on the ears, but there's not much he can be expected to do about that. I will say that I found his behavior/mannerisms very familiar, having had a fair amount of time around former drug addicts. The folks that seemed to do best in terms of their recovery were the ones that found something to fill the space that drugs once did. And once they found that thing (or things), they became very, very passionate about it. They could be overwhelming at times. Steve-O seems like an emotionally 'extreme' guy to begin with, so I imagine with recovery that might be amplified. And obviously every Whooch can't be gold like with Zouks or St Clair or STEVEN. BRODY. STEVENS. YEAH! The great thing about Whooch is that there's always another one around the corner, so if you don't like one there's a Twooch or a Whooch coming soon to clean your palate.

    Episode 114 — Surfing Rainbows

    Have you ever heard Gilbert's real voice? It's downright soothing!

    Episode 114 — Surfing Rainbows

    I'll agree with you there. It's why I don't really like the idea of 'guilty pleasures' - you either like something or you don't, you shouldn't feel compelled to justify it.

    Yeah, I can't believe people are using a forum designed for feedback to offer feedback,

    Episode 114 — Surfing Rainbows

    I found it very interesting that in the discussion about Killer Karaoke that Steve spent a great deal of time talking about cruelty to animals, and never once acknowledged that the entire show is basically cruelty as entertainment. Yes, the contestants presumably signed up for it, but it doesn't make the show any less reprehensible.

    I find Gillian's Royal Tenenbaum cosplay absolutely delightful.

    Episode 114 — Surfing Rainbows

    There's definitely no mystery as to why Steve-O is always losing his voice.

    Kulap's OJ commercial, in case anyone was interested!

    Episode 80 — Nazi Haircut

    Oliver Hardy was another famous toothbrush moustache guy (what it was called before Adolf ruined it for everyone).
