Episode 598: Recasting the Avengers

As the summer comes to a close, so does 2023 edition, and the final edition of #FanBoySummer this year (and possibly for a while), Dave, Mikey, and #XLessDrEarl welcome back one of the show faves -- Straight Outta Iowa, it's Aussie Nate!

First, a quick catch-up on Nate, then a rousing round of Denzel... where #XLessDrEarl goes straight for the jugular in his ruthless ambition to win.

Then, Aussie Nate instructs the group on the topic for the day. Something something about recasting the main Avengers - Tony Stark, Cap, Nat, Hawkeye, Thor, and Hulk - and doing it per decade but keeping one of the originals that doesn't count for the 2000s but then in order so like the 90s first then the 80s then back to the 2000s and whatever. 

As you'll hear, Mikey screwed up all the instructions. Either way, it makes for a delightful conversation, one that ends with quick chatter on the Star Wars Holiday Special screening from the weekend, mad props to Friend of the Show Burgeydoodle for his big win, and much more random conversation.

Episode 595: Our 1988 Favorites

It's always an honor and a pleasure to welcome back one of our absolute favorites and a spot of true class on our little show... and since Jenn Novotny was not available, we called upon our beloved Jennifer Kaufman as this week's #FanboySummer winner loser participant!

First up, lots of birthday movies from the previous 5, 10, 20 and so on years -- including the original The Meg's 5th birthday, 2 Guns 10th birthday, The Fugitive's 30th birthday, and more.

Then, a round of Reel or Unreal, as the crew tries to guess the names of really bad films few people have heard of.

Finally, a great look at the year in film 1988.  Kaufman gives her reasons for picking this topic, and everyone gives their favorite films from that year including vintage Eddie Murphy... all the actors who were up for the legendary role Bob Hoskins got... the sad  tale of "Yep Yep Yep"... a shout out to Garrison's fave film... Seagal, Ernest, and Chevy all get love from Mikey... and Dr Earl gets pretentious, of course.

Episode 594: The Mike v Dave Tourney

 With episode 600 looming, the Big Bracket is getting full... and Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome back Friend of the Show Clay Shaver, and he brings a special tournament for the crew to push through.

This time around, to determine which role will join the greats like Prince Akeem, Castor Troy, Indiana Jones, Anna Scott, and not Ethan Hunt, this time, there are 16 "DAVE" or "DAVIDs" from the movies, and 16 "MIKE", "MIKEY", or "MICHAELs to vote on. 

Plus, the guys catch up with the latest with Clay in the Mitt of Michigan, his thoughts on the "Barbie" phenomenon, and lots of  talk about Robert Romanus.  Lots of talk.  And even some Boner Stabone. 

You just gotta listen.

And then, Dave pays off the 1st annual Dave'Stalgia, with older films assigned by friends of the show like Burgeydoodle, Roth from Wyoming, Lil G, from hosts Mikey and #TwitterlessDrEarl and a last minute addition from Clay himself.
