Movie Meltdown - Episode 92
Join us as the Movie Meltdown gang heads to Chicago in our own CB-equipped “shortbus”. Listen as we recount our day at the convention (in our usual style), plus our interview with actor Richard Anderson, including several Bionic announcements! (And yes, that is Star Trek's "Q" that comes up in the middle of the interview. And the tapping you hear in the background toward the end is Micky Dolenz and his drumsticks who was right behind us.)
All that plus…Deep-fried food, hiding your lunch money in your ‘roos, Joan Jett continues to kick-ass!!, Dirty Jobs, Cobra: The Space Pirate, celebrities coming out of the bathroom, is it time to re-boot G.I. Joe?, potpourri of body odor, ripped Green Lantern, John Schneider, getting called a silly goose?, Googled, 20 pounds of dead skin, more SuperDawgs, sneaking pictures, don’t you hate it when the maid walks in on the orgy?, Spider-man’s girlfriend, we saw bunnies, The Batmobile, Wilson? From Home Improvement?, playing deadly Seven Minutes in Heaven, darting off like a bunny, The Iron Sheik, Black Dynamite 2, he spent the real of his career being “boner”, stalking and smelling celebrities and at some point we say…
“God bless his massive, over-worked heart”
“Sometimes I’d get in the closet and take the box lid off, just to pop the bubble.”
“Did he cry little Trekkie tears?”
“He had a perfectly round face, kind of like a Garbage Pail Kid.”
“She wasn’t as friendly as John Schnieder who cuddled me to his bosom.”
“You can’t accept Marlena without knowing your gonna see a little boob and a little bit of butt crack.”
“I can taste how you smell.”
“Look…they got a Shatner machine!”
“I was right next to Skeletor’s package at one point.”
“I just got tired of seeing guy’s dick outlines through their leotards.”
“I’m going to use my midget stature to my advantage”
“Now ride me Shanter, ride me!!”

Movie Meltdown - Episode 91.2
This week's Sofa Theater feature is 1971's FRIGHT. This British movie showcases great visuals and the groundbreaking idea of a babysitter being alone in a house while the killer lurks outside. But what does the gang think of the characters, pacing and British-ness of this film??
And then we follow it up with feedback focusing on the viciousness and awesomeness of Misty.
“This movie made me realize I would have zero problem emptying a loaded gun into the face of someone who f-ing deserved it.”
WARNING: FRIGHT spoilers are contained in this discussion (as usual).

How did Marlena get involved with the secret service? How did Joanie get that suggestive nickname? And just how do Tom Selleck and Don Knots fit into this?? Well, you’ll just have to listen…
