Episode 167: Some Childhood Favorites

The boys are back and better than ever... of course, Mikey had to bail before the episode was to begin--some nonsense about his very pregnant wife having contractions and such.  We will discuss his commitment to the show soon.

Filling in the Mikey-shaped hole, TechnoRetro Dads co-host Shazbazzar steps in as we discuss our favorite movies from when we were children.  With one growing up in the 70s/80s, another growing up in the late 80s and yet another growing up in the 90s, a wide range of films are discussed, including sharing love for The Goonies... The Secret of NIMH... The Last Unicorn... Lord of the Rings... WarGames... and does Howard the Duck hold up?  All of these and even more films you may have forgotten about.

You'll also get great discussions on the loss of Saturday morning cartoons... why ...Say Anything might not be as good as we pretend it is... a quick mention of other great Cusack films from the 80s...  who sings "Young Hearts Beat Fast" in Karate Kid... d$'s attempt to write the Mannequin novelization... Saved by the Bell... a thrilling round of Rotten Tomatoes...

And, Pinky reveals how much he loves/likes/apathetic/dislikes/hates Pee Wee's Big Adventure in Pretty in Pink!
