  1. This has nothing to do with the show this week, and it might even refer to one of your other podcasts, but one time you guys were talking about an NES (I think?) sports game with really hilarious fake team names. I remember cracking up over it but I can’t remember the game. Help me out??

  2. The rambling about Fast Five was brutal for me. Just talking in circles repeating yourselves.

    But glad you enjoy those movies, this was the last one I tried and was bored.

    Still a fun episode overall

    1. I never really got the series myself. I watched Fast Five because of the online hype and ultimately thought “That was…okay? It was fine?”

      But oh boy am I tired of the continuing trend of “There’s clearly something wrong with you if you don’t like [insert movie title here]”

  3. Cyclone hits Bangladesh. On the macro level I find it interesting that there was a very very steady decrease in TOTAL deaths by natural disasters decade by decade from the 1920’s to the 1990’s and this was despite a large increase in global population: php5jAxc7.png (632×460) (cheggcdn.com) but like much 20th century trends the 21st century has seen a reversal of this previous trend.

    Toy Soldiers. What was Sean Astin’s best acting in a film where he was a child actor? Not the role you have the most emotional connection to, but the one where he acts the best?

    Oscar. Why has Arnold had a number of fondly remembered comedies while Sly just doesn’t? Is it luck or a difference in ability and range between the two actors?

    21 Jump Street having “No fandom” strikes me as pretty standard for _most_ dramas 30 years after they went off the air. It’s sci-fi that is the weirdo genre where most sci-fi shows gets a fanbase that _cares_ about a tv show decades after it airs. Who today talks of Cagney and Lacey? Or Hill Street Blues? Or Scarecrow and Mrs. King? (All shows that got far more viewers than TNG ever did).

    My Life and Times. Oh my gosh! This is why I love #thirtytwentyten so freaking much! I had been remembering this show for 30 years now and I never knew the name. It is one hell of a premise though (Let’s tell a man’s life story with half being in “our” past and half being in “our” future) and I wish more had come of it because a number of its storylines stuck with me. I do remember in 2008 thinking back and going, “What was that TV show I saw in my youth about that economic collapse” and here it is; https://youtu.be/1YOugE3Sc6Q?t=162

    What % of the dark adult humor of Dinosaurs the tv show did you get as a kid?

    Fast and Furious Five. You convinced me. I watched it.

    Who is the biggest start to come out of The Voice?

    The Happy Ending. Anyone want to go to bat for this show?

    Honestly, I really deeply enjoyed the post-Michael Scott episodes of The Office and I 100% expected the series to be horrible once he left. It’s good to keep and open mind.
