In part one of our two-part Holiday Special, Drew and Badway relive the seasonal “classic” Jingle All The Way. 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. They also discuss deadbeat dads, golden underwear-clad sidekicks, and induct Hartman’s “Ted” into the Creep Hall of Shame. Additionally, the guys reminisce about their own personal Turbo-Man gifts and other holiday surprises and disappointments from their past. Put your cookies down and enjoy the show!
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.
In the debut episode of The Last Row Podcast, Drew and Badway revisit a childhood classic: The Mighty Ducks. They discuss Gordon Bombay’s REAL motivation for coaching the Ducks (hockey moms), pee-wee hockey locker room cancers, and the origins of the word “cake eater.” They also re-live a “Coach Riley” moment from Badway’s childhood basketball career, break down little Gordon Bombay’s improbable 198 goal season in the pee-wees, and blow your mind with a new theory about the existence of Hans.
