43. Distribution

October 20th, 2013 · Comments

Living as we do in an age where almost any film or TV show can be found online via a streaming service or similar On-Demand forms, what will happen to the traditional means of culture consumption? The boys attempt to answer that question this week as they look at the different ways in which we can now enjoy the things we enjoy. Along the way, they contemplate the future of the cinematic experience, wonder whether The Lone Ranger could have been saved by day-and-date releasing, and generally muse over the future of cinemas, TV networks and physical formats. Despite being uncommonly focused, there are digressions aplenty, including a disturbing peak inside Joe's campaign to get Mannequin re-released.

Enjoy, you modern ne'er do wells!

42. Breaking Bad

October 7th, 2013 · Comments

With the finale now a safe distance away, it's time for Joe & Ed to assess Breaking Bad, a show widely considered to be one of the best of all time. The boys ponder whether or not that's true, amongst other things, such as where Walt got his old clothes from and if Danny Dyer is ready to pick up the mantle of greatest dramatic actor working on television.

As per usual, it's spoilergeddon, so don't listen until you're done with the show.
