The Fourth of July is coming early next week. To celebrate, we look at one of our favorite episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, where the gang puts on a wrestling event with a little support from Rowdy Roddy Piper's character.
Another Marvel movie will be released soon as we celebrate the return of Thor, so it's time for more entries related to actors and actresses in the MCU. We go back to 1980 for Stephen J. Cannell's first series, with Jeff Goldblum and Ben Vereen playing detectives in the short-lived but fondly remembered Tenspeed and Brown Shoe.
We're sticking with the courtroom theme in this surprise live show where we go back to a show covered in Episode 117 as we look at a special episode of Personal Injury Court.
In this episode, Gino gives us the legal sauce in a case where a lady gets blinded in an eye by a bag of peanuts at a baseball game thrown by the team mascot.
Let's just say that the costume of the mascot is something that has been seen to be appreciated.
You can watch the episode and follow along at the official YouTube channel for Personal Injury Court. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXfEgepI5UA
Early in COVID times, a lot of odd shows came down the pipe to entertain audiences stuck at home. Gary Busey, Pet Judge was one of them. Take fake court cases, presided by a fake judge, complete with fake plaintiffs and defendants, and throw in an obviously fake court reporter and...hilarity ensues?
Greg and Chico watch the first two episodes of "Obi-Wan Kenobi" the latest Star Wars series on Disney+.
In Ewan McGreggor's epic return to the role of our favorite Jedi master, Obi-Wan has to deal with failing in his training of Anakin back in "Revenge of the Sith".
Meanwhile, a certain Princess from Alderaan is kidnapped and it's up to Obi-Wan to save her from the clutches of the Empire and his former Padawan turned Sith Lord.
Here are the timecodes on when to play Episodes 1 & 2 to sync up with us if you are following along on Disney+.
Episode 1 - 3:31
Episode 2 - 55:23
It's another police procedural from the 80s, but this one's different; it has a female lead. And a very big gun. And she wasn't afraid to use it. Lady Blue was one of the most violent shows on TV at that time. Alas, it ran for 14 episodes amongst tough competition.
FOX was the newcomer on the block in 1987, specifically when it came to primetime programming. They threw a lot of stuff against the wall, to see if much stuck. Women in Prison was one such program that just didn't click. But that theme song!
It's 1985. NBC has a little show called Knight Rider and CBS has Airwolf, while ABC has neither. Give an LAPD cop a high-powered motorcycle during his time off-the-clock and he's ABC's response--Street Hawk, another show that was more popular overseas than domestically.
It's viewer request time again! You wanted us to watch this sort-of spiritual successor to High School U.S.A. (Episode 158) and we did! Why did this movie about a summer camp originally air in the not-so summer month of February 1985? We know why it reran in July 1985, besides it was summer.
In an experimental solo episode that Greg does somewhat live from his car after work, Greg talks about the shows he's been watching so far as the summer starts to heat up.
Greg talks about the new season of Stranger Things along with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+. He also talks about how he thinks the finale of Barry Season 3 will go down.
Afterwards, Greg looks ahead talking about future episodes of the podcast along with memories of playing NES including Bases Loaded, Dusty Diamond's All-Star Softball and that horrid LJN Back to the Future Game.
