Jonathan Moxon does not want your life. He’s going to Brown. While the greatest fictional backup QB of all time (sorry, Matt Saracen) found a way out of his crappy hometown, The Last Row Podcast will always be here with the townies to tell the story of “remember when.” Remember the time Coach Kilmer got run out of town even though he might not have done much wrong besides being kind of a jerk, semi-racist, and pushed his players beyond their physical limit? Remember the time John Moxon almost slept with his best friend’s girlfriend while the poor sucker was laid up in the hospital? Remember the time Lance Harbor became the youngest head coach at 18 years old, bypassing numerous highly qualified assistants? Remember the time when James Van Der Beek and Amy Smart were still a working actors? No? The Last Row remembers. Enjoy this week’s episode on the underrated classic, Varsity Blues.
Fresh off the Furious 7 premiere, the guys are all hopped up on adrenaline and NOS energy drinks, and are here to give you a suped-up episode dedicated to the entire Fast and Furious franchise. Drew and Badway do a quick rundown of each film, rank them, and explore the series’ revolutionary way of titling its sequels. Other topics include: Dominic Toretto as a cult leader, Brian as the worst undercover cop, real life street racing lifestyles, the definition of a “buster,” a peek at the villain wikia’s absurd tagging system, and an analysis of the series’ shift from street racing to Ocean’s Eleven style heist movies. The guys also take a few moments to pay tribute to Paul Walker and his Brian O’Conner character, as well as attempt to find a suitable replacement in future Fast movies. Finally, Badway goes on a passionate rant, rallying against the franchise’s haters and closeted fans.
Love is in the air, as The Last Row Podcast takes the nerd glasses off of She’s All That to reveal its true beauty. No topic is off limits, as Drew and Badway discuss old men playing teenagers, high school DJs, Taylor Vaughan’s bout with PBF (permanent bitch face), and a greased up Paul Walker wrestling Freddie Prinze Jr. in the locker room. The guys also go a bit off the rails to discuss the taboos of step-sibling marriage, revisit MTV’s Real World and Spring Break glory days, review a movie that doesn’t exist: 10 Things I Hate About Losing A Guy, and come full circle to pull a ‘She’s All That’ on She’s All That by turning the laughable teen comedy into an Oscar baiting tour de force.
