After a week-long hiatus, The Last Row Podcast cooks up a new episode and gets back on track with a unique take on Under Siege 2: Dark Territory. Seagal topics include: Louisiana accents, face fatness, ego fatness, and his fake restaurant, Casey’s Dockside Bistro. Non-Seagal topics include: how a rookie would shoot an MP5, the myth that is Dark Territory, high school history teachers as effective evil geniuses, and tips on the correct way to insult a woman before you throw her off of a train. Additionally, the guys have some big recast ideas for the supporting characters and throw all structure to the curb while ranting on the movie’s nonstop absurdity.
In honor of Super Bowl XLIX weekend, The Last Row Podcast studies the game tape of the 1994 gem, Little Giants. No detail is too small as Drew and Badway discuss the legendary Kevin O’Shea’s post college flame-out, his “big fish in a small pond” mentality, and his penchant for automatic transmission Corvettes. Badway details his full scouting report on hotshot QB, Junior Floyd, while Drew questions O’Shea’s dream crushing, niece brainwashing coaching tactics. Finally, the guys debut their new game, “Last Row Lines.”
The Last Row Podcast delves deep into the underground fight scene to bring you the lowdown on the 1988 Jean-Claude Van Damme classic, Bloodsport. When they aren’t butchering the character names of the film, Drew and Badway discuss the art of the montage, dramatic pauses, splits, and the questionable logic of gambling a woman’s safety on a magic trick. Other questions that are addressed: How does one enter the Kumite? Is Chong Li really a bad guy? Is the real life Frank Dux full of crap? The guys wrap up the episode by playing a game of “Fantasy Kumite,” plugging in their favorite classic characters into the tournament.
The Last Row Podcast takes you back to school as they explore the movie world of Kindergarten Cop. Drew and Badway go deep undercover to analyze Arnold’s odd chemistry with women, his shoddy detective work, and his irresponsible teaching tools. The guys also rate bad guy Cullen Crisp (The Final Boss of the Internet) on the villain scale, re-write the entire plot, and play a game of “Who is your action star, and what does he do?”
Bar fights. Throat rips. Monster trucks as surveillance vehicles. Patrick Swayze’s bare ass. Are those some things you might be interested in? The Last Row Podcast has you covered with these topics and more in their rousing episode featuring the late 80s classic, Road House. Drew and Badway talk mullets, skullets, wet jean kicks, knee kicks, roundhouses, and the art of the head nod. Additionally, the guys cast the upcoming reboot and play a “tough guy movie line” trivia game. Listen, and above all else, “Be Nice!”
Just in time for the new year, Drew and Badway invite Ty, Ghostbusters aficionado and one half of the Solid Verbal Podcast, to discuss the polarizing Ghostbusters II. The trio analyze Sigourney Weaver as a questionable 80’s sex symbol, the value of a Ghostbusters birthday party, all things Janosz Poha, and Vigo’s ineffectiveness as a final boss. The guys also offer a shocking take on the Eddie Murphy/Ernie Hudson “Winston” controversy.

In part two of The Last Row’s Holiday Extravaganza, Drew and Badway break down everyone’s favorite Christmas sequel – Home Alone 2: Lost In New York (brought to you by Tiger Electronic’s Talkboy). The guys discuss among other issues: the wealthy McCallisters’ bad parenting habits, reasons why Kevin truly was a disease, and the lost art of the good old fashioned “crook.” Kevin’s more elaborate death traps are put through a game of “Dead or Alive,” and the hosts read a few listener contributions as well as announce an exciting New Year’s contest.

Hot topics include: The world’s worst USPS employee (if he really works for them, anyway), the countless guy code violations made by Phil Hartman’s character, and raise questions as to how busy a mattress selling Arnold can truly be on Christmas Eve.

This week Drew and Badway discuss Nicolas Cage’s greatest movie (of year 2000), Gone in 60 Seconds. The guys analyze the feasibility of stealing 50 cars in one night, “screw-up” younger brothers, traditional car thief hairstyles, and the street value of abstract art made by crime bosses. They also debate the possibility of a Nic Cage / Angelina Jolie on-set romance, Raymond Calitri’s place on the villain scale, and Detective Castlebeck’s general awfulness at detecting, policing, and/or officiating.
