The Last Row Podcast celebrates football season by getting Invincible with Mark Wahlberg a.k.a. Vince Papale. Drew and Badway discuss the differences between the biopic dramatizations and the real life story, search for Wahlberg’s Philly accent, and spend 20+ minutes on Papale’s wife, who got 2 minutes of actual movie screen time, breaking down her all-time undressing of her soon to be ex-husband. The guys also identify which sports and jobs they could “walk on” to, bash biopics as a whole, and equate Rami Malek’s performance as Freddy Mercury to completing a brilliant paint-by-numbers drawing.
In the debut series of The Last Row: Shorts, Drew and Badway discuss random movie and pop culture topics, and also score a villain from their early podcast library to place them on their patented “Villain Scale”. This week, the guys open by discussing their adventures in toy hunting, and wrap up by scoring the Villain from their very first episode ever, The Mighty Ducks’ Coach Reilly.
The conclusion of The Last Row Podcast’s “Predator Month” has the guys revisiting the often forgotten Danny Glover led Predator 2. Was Lt. Murtaugh a realistic and viable opponent for a Predator? Is it easier to fight a Predator in a city vs the jungle? Will a future 1997 really be littered with foreign drug warfare, and if so, will the mayor take a Ted Cruz-esque conveniently timed vacation to escape it all? Is having a Predator in your city the perfect violent crime deterrent? Finally, is Glover’s Predator weaker than Arnold’s? All of these questions, and more, will be answered! Additionally, Drew and Badway touch on the many sequels of the franchise, including the fantastic new entry, Prey.
