Episode 239: TV into Movies (ft Shazbazzar!)

If you've ever watched a classic television show from the 70s or 80s and thought "Man, this would be a great movie!" then this is The Deucecast Movie Show episode for you!


Mikey, Dave and Pinky first welcome in Terrance Malick Apologist and Film Historian Dr Earl, and welcome back to the Perry King Studios none other than TechnoRetro Dads co-host Shazbazzar!  

First up, the birthday movies, including August 1986, which was a gold mine of classic films all released in a few weeks of each other.

Next... playing a game called Chronology, with categories like "Whats My Nam, Yo!" and "Its Gonna Be Huuuughes", naming the correct order of films release dates.

And finally... a collection of television shows from the 70s and 80s that the hosts and guests would love to see turned into a film... imagine a big screen version of Perfect Strangers... or The Wonder Years... or Six Million Dollar Man... or even a classic 80s game show turned into a thriller.  And Dave does his best to make sure a certain beloved actress gets some work!  Plus, who would be better as KITT... Samuel Jackson or Morgan Freeman?   

Can Christian Slater be a Hogan Hero?  Can Jeffrey Dean Morgan be a Haitian priest?  And who is the Scarecrow and who is Mrs King?  

And Dave talks about the dream cast of a classic anime film... and discussions of fitting a long series into a 2 hour film, and Stephen King's upcoming works.  And bonus, a sampling of some classic theme songs!
