The guys at The Last Row Podcast kick off 2018 by dissecting the 1998 box-office bomb, Jack Frost. Drew and Badway are talking deadbeat dads, dead dads, snowman rules, snowman funerals (including the proper disposal of snowman ashes), and when exactly to quit your crappy band and stop burdening your poor wife and son.
Just like a single deadbeat dad scrambling to get his kid presents on Christmas Eve, The Last Row Podcast brings you a special bonus holiday episode featuring Disney’s 1994 classic: The Santa Clause. Drew and Badway, possibly loose on too much egg nog, go off the rails early and often in this one, talking single father movie tropes, Santa faking his own death, whiny children of divorce, the “adult” benefits of becoming Santa, and the act of forcing coats on grown men. Also, the guys inadvertently invent a dark R-rated action crime drama that probably surpasses the original film. Merry Christmas!
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.
One of the hottest holiday debates in recent years has been questioning whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie or not. We won’t reveal our opinion on the matter, but we want to hear yours. In fact, we want to know what you all think so much that we designed a giveaway around it. We will discuss the giveaway in detail on the Home Alone 2: Lost in New York upcoming episode.

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!
