This week Duelers, we relish in the misfortunes of others with a wild and woolly worst of battle. With Mancrush soaking up the sun in South Beach we asked a longtime friend of the show Brent Hand of the Hysteria 51 podcast to step up and tackle the worst of February 1993. The Professor, Drew Zakmin is back with a vengeance and the absolute worst of February 1975! Finally, Marc James competes with the worst offerings from February 1982. A fan favorite, Mike Ranger returns behind the bench to judge these shoddy selections.  Brent brings the sadness with 1993 and a year that just kept giving grief in many forms. We hear about the debut album from Tara Patrick and not the one you are thinking of. Drew Zakmin tries to take down a dinosaur with a zip gun and Marc James’s blood runs cold because his memory has just been sold! Brent breaks out a magazine staple of the 1980s and we hear about the origins of the Mirth Mobile! Cartoon animals invade DC Comics and just who exactly is the Chili Bowl Mullet Man anyway? The cast comes to an agreement that there are too many cop and hospital shows and Drew brings one of the worst. We cover a not so classic episode of M*A*S*H. Brent checks in to see what's happening in Waco while 3 hours away an unwelcome rocker finds a unique place to piss. The ground shakes in China and We hear about a series of unfortunate events on the set of The Crow you may not already know about! Find out what “worst of” movie is the debut film of a gerbil-loving Hollywood A-Lister. Then we hear about a pair of London tragedies only fitting of this episode.  Do you agree with Mike's rulings?

We had so much fun the last time they were on the show we could not wait for the return of Adam Sweeney and Scott Barber the duo behind the fantastic documentary film "The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story". This time around we turned off the kid-stuff and threw them a curveball for some fun, as we investigate the idiots of dumb crime and capers! Mancrush swings into the 70s with 1974 and a slew of “hot” picks. Marc James is on a mission from God and hopes all the dumb criminals of 1980 can help him steal this one. Trevor Gumbal returns to the show with 1998 and some half-baked criminals caught in the act.  It’s always fun to have returning guest judges on the show and as of late we have had some triumphant returns and Adam Sweeney and Scott Barber are no exception. Even though they are veteran judges Adam and Scott have their work cut out for them because the cast this week dug up some of the most crooked crooks committing some of the craziest crimes you will ever hear about. The judges are not the only returns to the show this week as a James Caan classic comes back but this time on the big screen. Find out the best places to steal music in 1998 and was it Buttercup or Butternuts anyway? Bagpipes blared as the police are Breaking The Law and everything else in a hotel room apparently. Thieves steal some sacrificial knives and 28 cents worth of brass. A famous singer gets caught with his pants down trying to Wham someone and a London heist gets caught on camera. Did a policeman have a sixth sense or was he just a racist? As well as their movie, Scott Barber wants everyone to check out the music of Westley Willis! We hear the story of an AWOL Huey Helicopter and you won’t believe what Jerry Springer wrote a check for in 1974!  Do you agree with Scott and Adam's rulings? Play at home and judge for yourself!

With Marc turning 43 this week, we're ready for a retro birthday extravaganza! So for a birthday bash, we needed someone who knows the crew really well. A man that takes no prisoners, believes there's no easy way out, the angel of the city himself, Robert Tepper! This cast favorite is back for his third appearance behind the bench, and as usual, he proves that he's "Better Than the Rest" when it comes to judging. Tepper swings the gavel harder than most, and even proclaimed "I love this show! Who else talks about this sh%t?! It's unbelievable!" Well, here to deliver more copious amounts of excrement, Mike Ranger brings the very best from his 13th birthday in, 1995! Mike Ranger is followed up this week by a man on a wicked losing streak, Mancrush travels back to his 6th birthday in 1984 looking to strike pay dirt. Rounding out the competition, it's the birthday boy himself, Marc James with his actual birthdate in 1978! Happy birthday Marc! Once again, Robert Tepper doesn't disappoint behind the bench. The guys have never actually met Robert, but it sounds like they've known him forever! In this episode, you may hear something about Marc wishing he was born in Iowa, Bakula sparkles on WPIX, Mancrush spends a weekend with Diane Lane, Tepper loses his mind at a Phish show, Chris Isaak gets overpaid, a band that doesn't pander to fans, Dr. Ben Casey falls through the stage, Mancrush's plea to Major League Baseball, a man gets unexpectantly blown in his car, nerds with lots of money, an unconventional convention, Mike Ranger makes a call to his past resignations, simple lives aren't simple, tennis with Dave Grohl, the Ranger family goes to the drive-in, bypass patch cords for everyone, DLR asks for a bump, Zeke and Jerry turn to crime for the American dream, and why the hell are we headed to Lancaster Pennsylvania?!

Welcome to another episode of your favorite adult, retro gameshow! We're happy to welcome back one of our favorite judges, the same man who created our sweet theme music, Wax! Wax brought his unique insight to the bench and a potential movie idea that we began to flesh out pre-recording. Unfortunately, we weren't recording at the time, wuh waah. Anyways, Wax has been here a few times, he knows the lay of the land, and he's up on his pop culture. So let's get this thing started! The first contestant this week, our friend from the Great White North, Joe Findlay brings his best from the final week of January 1992 along with him. Next up, Mancrush is looking to get back into the win column after several straight losses. To do so, he brought the finest late-January 1985 had to offer. And keeping the rear in check, Marc James goes way back to 1976 to complete this trio of retro awesomeness. We love having veteran judges back on the show. The show may have changed slightly since the last time Wax was on in February 2020, but the premise is the same. Unfortunately, no rap battles this time, but you still may hear about: the reason Wax has two toothbrushes, the American Music Awards becomes an unsung hero, a real-life Mentos commercial in Arizona, Kersey may ride the subway, Blisters down under, Wax's surprising vocal inspiration, the seduction of Tom Skerritt, Ben Vereen dazzles his way to 41 IMDb reviews, politicians are straight shooters, Winter Magic gets hit over the head with a sock full of balls, the law offices of DeFazio-Feeney & Squiggman, unattainable vehicles, two guys go for broke, no one knows who Raphael is, Ozploitation is apparently a thing, a big 10-4 for pig pen, the Hobgoblin doesn't deliver in the clutch, snacks with Wax, back alley Lunchables, tough mall cops, and guess who's coming FOREVER?! Do you agree with Wax's rulings? Play at home and judge for yourself! While you're at it, send your rulings to our Facebook and pick up 20 points on the Dueling Decades Leaderboard!

Since most people can't go to the bar, we decided to bring the bar to you! Do you have an abundance of leftover holiday spirits? Grab a cold one, relax, and join us for this retro booze battle! To judge an episode on booze, we couldn't rely on just anyone to swing the gavel. We needed someone who could really handle their liquor! That man, Bum Wine Bob! The host of "Bumming with Bobcat" showed up with a quarter, two Colt 45s, and a great attitude! The first contestant of the week, drinking a glass of water, Drew Zakmin brings the best Booze of 1991. Representing the best booze of 1981, Marc James also brought a whiskey sipper with him. And rounding out the competition, Mancrush goes way back, and delivers the booze of 1971! Oddly enough, the guys have known Bum Wine Bob for years! So everyone was pretty jazzed about finally getting to record together. In this episode, you might actually find out what people are drinking tonight, Laurel and Hardy push the highest quality cheap beer, Zakmin assumes a spy's adolescent nephew drinks a lot, afterschool special fun with Mom, a Bocephus sticker on the rear of your 442, RCA makes a grave mistake, being sick soft gooey and cold, the man with the most onscreen kills, a dude who likes vodka, Drew and a Russian bear run a train with lots of Vodka, Mancrush drinks in the parking lot of Staples, Plenty O'Toole gets thrown out a window, a suit saves United Artists from financial ruin, Jewish wine becomes a college staple, Florida's green sports beer from Pennsylvania, odd breweries, Miller Lite gets major competition, Bobcat tells a tale, a terrible whiskey idea, a group who should never drink, the best "budget booze" with Bobcat, and what four-letter word immediately makes booze better?

It's time for another episode of everyone's favorite retro game show, Dueling Decades! It might be 2021, but we're determined to take you back in time with the best of January 1979, 1987, and 1996!

Yes, I assure you, we're back! Fans will know this week's judge best from his role as the Chewlies Gum rep in the Kevin Smith classic, Clerks. Scott Schiaffo took some time away from getting angry crowds of customers throwing cigarettes and calling clerks around the country "cancer merchants" to swing the gavel for us this week! Not to worry, there was plenty to throw this week! First up, Drew "The Professor" Zakmin is back, and he's got the best "weak" experience of January 1999 he could find. Mancrush drew the year he never seems to have any luck with, January 1988. Will his week be strong enough to get him a win this time? Rounding out the trifecta of nostalgia this week, Marc James jams all the way back to the first week of January 1977!  Scott was a super awesome funny dude, and his stories were amazing!

Hack the planet! This week, we have the King of Nynex, the Phantom Phreak himself, Renoly Santiago behind the gavel to judge this "worst of" episode of Dueling Decades! Aside from Hackers, you'll know Renoly from such classics as Con Air, Dangerous Minds, and Daylight. After a last-minute call out, Trevor saves the day by joining us as our first contestant in this retro skirmish. For this one, Trevor came packing some heat with the worst of December 1989! Apparently, Mancrush traveled back to a year where he really enjoyed going to bars. In spite of that, he brought back a six-pack of Zima and the worst of December 1997 with him! Rounding out the competition this week, Marc James did his research from an abandoned farmhouse in Walnut Grove, Minnesota to bring us the worst of December 1975!

We've been jonesing for months to do another wrestling episode, but we just couldn't get the stars to align with our guests. Well, the wait is over! Time to throw it back to some of our favorite squared circle moments from the decades we love the most, the 80s and 90s of course! For this, we needed to get someone with keen wrestling prowess who could adjudicate this royal rumble of sorts. So this week, we present the Larry King of wrestling, the 4x Emmy award-winning, Chris Van Vliet! Beau Becraft was super excited to join us this week and compete with Wrestling of 1999. Sadly, Beau fell ill just before our recording. Being the gent that he is, Mike Ranger stepped in last minute, armed with Beau's research, he was committed to bringing this one home for his former tag team partner, Beau Becraft! Marc James decided he too was going to cover the 1990s and selected the pro wrestling gems of 1992. Rounding out this triple threat match, Mancrush dials up his boyhood memories with wrestling of 1984. Chris Van Vliet is put to the test this week, and he had some seriously difficult decisions to make! In this episode you might hear something about the best ending to a brass knuckle fight, the worst PPV Mancrush has ever seen, WWF's killer counter-programming, the worst lyrics of all time, a devastating moment in wrestling, the birth of wrestling entertainment, stylin' and profilin', awkward happy endings, Luc Deveraux believes in the ice bath, Mother Mancrush's secret weapon, MTV's most-watched show of 1984, what to expect in wrestling post-Covid, a message for the sweat hogs, the ires of being an assman, Mike Ranger's adoration for pro wrestling, the moves that really move em, video games to make your thumbs bleed, made up championships, the longest fictitious title reign in history, the bridging German suplex is wildly ineffective, pro wrestlers Chris Van Vliet has coming up, and a big ol' get well soon to Beau Becraft!

Our buddy David Schultz is back this week to adjudicate this retro battle of the ages! Better yet, we should go by his new moniker The Honorable Dr. David Schultz, my apologies! This week "The Professor" Drew Zakmin is back, and he gets all nostalgic about his selections from December of 1990. Next up, Marc James is smack dab in the middle of this retro assault with the very best of December 1982 he could whip up. Looking to get back in the win column after a few down weeks, Mancrush hopes to come out victorious with his birth year, bringing the best of December 1978! The Honorable Dr. David Schultz hasn't been on in a few months, but the fellas pick right back up where they left off with him over the summer. Hopefully, no one brought any wrestling, we all know how Dr. Schultz feels about the squared circle!

Fresh off the release of his new film Beast Mode with C Thomas Howell, James Duval joins us this week as our celebrity guest judge to determine who takes this "week" experience! James has been in some great movies over the years like Independence Day, Gone in Sixty Seconds, May, SLC Punk, The Doom Generation; the list goes on and on. Nicest guy in the world and he shows up with the huge creepy bunny head from his character Frank in Donnie Darko to help make sure there is no malfeasance with his selections! What a strategy! The first contestant this week, Joe Findlay is back and he brought along the best first week he could find in December 1986 for the journey. Marc James travels back in time to two years before he was born to research the merits of December 1976. And finally, Mancrush is trying to get his game back on track after a few crushing defeats, but will the hand he is dealt from December 1996 be enough? So much fun conversation with James this week! After the show ended, the conversation didn't! So James might be back sooner than later. But in this particular episode, you may hear something about ninja fetish, Amy Brenneman defeats electricity, Tommy Lee Jones thinks he's Erik Estrada, the magic of movies, Sinbad wasn't a genie, Captain Steven Hiller perishes and brings a franchise down with him, a movie that sounds like it's about prostitutes, James dad brought him to strange flicks as a child, Mancrush's Dad needs to check his email, Sleestak is for the children, AAAAAY sit on it, a competitor emerges but did anyone buy it, Mancrush dials up an expert for his take, an odorous music selection leaves a bad taste in your mouth, the ultimate reason to fight, boring politics, a landmark ruling, flying swine, life feels like a sci-fi movie, Beast Mode's connection to Bernie Lomax, break out the paddles and slap some balls, Jimmy's new projects, and just what is it like to work with Randy Quaid??

We're back with another episode of everyone's favorite adult retro gameshow, Dueling Decades! But before we begin, you have to ask yourself one question. Is this lump outta your head? I think so! Why do I think so? It's probably because we're joined by Caspar Babypants himself, former frontman of The Presidents of the United States of America, guest judge Chris Ballew! Chris took some time out from creating new albums and art to judge this retro battle between our favorite decades. Our buddy Beau Becraft is back in the fold this week and went spelunking all the way back to the 70s for the first time with a righteous week from the end of November 1973. After breaking a five-week win streak, Mancrush is looking to get back on track with the last week of November 1981. Rounding out this week, Marc has been locked inside of the cyber cafe devising the best end of November 1992 he could ascertain. Millions of peaches, peaches for me, millions of peaches, peaches for free. Look out, Chris Ballew is swinging the gavel! In this episode, you might hear about Chris's almost disastrous meeting with Madonna, a cloud to rest your weary head, Marc pulls up in the party wagon, a cornerstone of Mancrush's childhood, workouts with the junction boys, more corruption in Washington, adopting mammals, Jon Hamm and Adam Scott disappoint Paul Rudd, Mr. Johnson puts a finger on you, Chris Barron returns, an altar boy's gift, Beau goes outside the box to end up in the boobtube, it's not Def Leppard, Ballew is intrigued by sea monkeys, Greatest American Hero meets Police Academy 2, footless dwarfs, Disney flicks, Beau gets scolded for using Kitty, listener questions, 18 albums in 10 years, Chris calls Francis Ford Coppola's house, life on the road, and why does Chris write about fruits and wildlife??

Just so happens, Monster Squad was one of my favorite movies growing up! Not only did I get to see it in the theater, but I was also in a dorky Monster Squad ripoff club at school called "The Monster Club"! Needless to say, I was looking forward to this episode. The leader of the Monster Squad and director of Wolfman Got Nards, Andre Gower joins the crew this week to judge this ghoulish battle of the decades! For the occasion, Andre gets to judge which decade had the best Monsters! Fan of the show and Monster Squad superfan, Trevor Gumbel joins the crew this week and brings a Monster 1998 to the table! Marc James wore his Member's Only jacket this week and brought along a classic helping of Monsters in 1979. Riding a five-game win streak, Mancrush rounds out this eerie episode with the best Monsters of 1985 he could conjure up. If you're a fan of Monster Squad, you need to see Andre's Monster Squad documentary, Wolfman Got Nards. Until then, listen in as Andre channels his inner-Sean, grabs the gavel, and judges this episode like a boss! In this duel, you might hear about Liam Neeson stalking the set, Mancrush runs into the real Godzilla, Lestat isn't Sting, a reporter goes full-on Jack McGee, terrible marketing, killer chickens of the sea, a virgin tells an unlikely tale, the best mullet of all time, Marc trades in his socks and sandals to go horror punk, Vincent Price is in everything, Tobe Hooper butchers Stephen King, Disney tries to be scary, your TV made you miss parts of Monster Squad, Fred Dekker rocks, two stoners release thirteen ghosts, a legendary franchise is born, Trevor brings a real downer, a middle-aged vampire swoons over Marcy Darcy, Andre answers listener questions, Dustin Diamond trades baseball cards, and did Andre really kill Atari?!

This week we asked acclaimed actor, comedian, and master impressionist Jim Meskimen to step behind the bench. Jim’s impressive body of work spans just about all of our Dueling Decades categories. Jim has worked on many of friend Ron Howard’s films as they both share the same mother, so to speak. Jim’s mom Marion Ross, played Marion Cunningham Ron Howard’s mom on the legendary TV show Happy Days. Jim’s voices can be heard all over Hollywood, video games, and television as he even appeared on a season of America’s Got Tallent! That being said, we knew he would be the perfect judge, and when Jim Meskimen is your judge you never know who is going to show up!  Mike Ranger's short judicial career is over, and he is back with the best of November 1984! Mancrush jumped in the DeLorean without his seatbelt and ended up dialing in November of 1974. And to round out the competition, Marc James settled his tab at the cyber cafe and delivers a cappuccino with the best of November 1994! Jim pulled out his "wheel of impressions" and an arsenal of celebrity friends to help him judge this tightly knit battle between November 1974, 1984 & 1994! In this episode, you might hear something about Arthur Fonzarelli's vices, Mike Ranger's obsession with tight spaces, NBC manages to avoid sleeping with the fishes, Jim sticks to the rivers and the lakes he's used to, the grandpappy of thrash emerges a champion, Matthew McConaughey drops by to say hello, the RIAA announces the cement classification, George W. Bush gets confused, a pop quiz for 12.99, Mancrush channels his inner Robert Frost, NBC goes dark in the 90s, a deal that keeps getting worse all the time, Sands gets the ax before moving on up, Reitman delivers a bomb, Woody Allen stops by to say hello, Jack Sparrow gets crushed by a record player, Mr. Rogers only wears one sweater, Charlton Heston has sex with more women half his age, a mutt saves kidnapped children, frilly shirts are back in style, life growing up on the Happy Days set, deep fakes are frightening, celebrity fortune cookies, and did Fonzie ACTUALLY Jump the Shark?

Did you grow up watching Nickelodeon? We sure did! Sure, Mancrush was watching Friday the 13th when he was like five, but he still watched himself some Nickelodeon. So the moment the boys saw mention of a Nickelodeon documentary, they jumped at the chance to get "The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story" directors' Adam Sweeney and Scott Barber on the show. First off, if you're a fan of Nick, you really should find yourself a copy of this documentary, it's packed with some green, slimy nostalgia! Second, Scott and Adam were amazing judges. To make sure this episode fit the bill, these guys had to decide which decade was "The Best for Kids". Our boy, Joe Findlay from the Great White North is back, and he came with the best options kids had from 1997. Playing the middle of the Oreo, Mancrush came correct with a snapshot of a kid's existence in 1988. Rounding it all out, Marc James rides in the rear of the wood-paneled station wagon with no seatbelt on as he delivers with 1977! As judges, Adam and Scott are hard to beat. You can feel their passion for each and every selection that was handed to them. This one is tight, but they managed to make that final call! In this episode, you might hear something about: getting slimed and loving it, pandering to wives, hooking up with your girlfriend's friends cause she demanded it, Hakuna Matata with a side of sax and violence, everything needs more Teek, bad movie reviews, cartoon fetishes, a classic is born, the origins of a real piece of trash, analytical football for kids, the king of cellulite, the grandpappy of livingroom gaming, magic sticks, critiquing Mom against Donna Reed, tie-breakers, some behind the scenes stories from The Orange Years, and who sported an Emmanuel Lewis fanny pack?

Another week, and another retro battle! Mike Ranger hasn't judged an episode in well over a year. Matter of fact, for a stretch in early 2019, Mike Ranger was our dedicated judge. Judge Ranger knows the ropes, and brings his own unique judging style to the table! This is a week experience, so you never can predict what picks could be brought to the table, and this episode is no different. Drew is back in the fold and he had to dig real deep to deliver the best he could find for his week in October 1975. Marc James threw on his leather Member's Only jacket and was ready to rock with the best of the last week of October 1982! Finally, Mancrush completes this week experience challenge with the finest final week of October 1993 he could conjure. You're in for a treat, Mike Ranger uses his very methodical judging prowess to determine the winner of this stiff matchup! In this episode, you might hear something about a boy who thought he could fly, the weirdest hot product you couldn't even imagine, Mancrush bores Judge Ranger, another unexpected duet, Erik Estrada takes down not Gene Simmons, Marc phones home for a hot product, Sean Maguire went to see about a girl, women's rights, the birth of the candy x-ray, extreme body modifications, Drew goes to bat for spider's rights, never judge a movie by its cover, David Carradine edges out Bruce Willis, a cocaine-fueled album rocks the westies, and Mike Ranger must be delirious to not be a fan of this artist!  Do you agree with Mike's rulings?

If you're like us, you adored Revenge of the Nerds growing up. Love it or hate it, there is no denying it was iconic 80s comedy! That being said, since we were all youngins when it came out in 1984, the only character that we could really relate to was Wormser! So as we were discussing Revenge of the Nerds a few weeks ago, Joe Findlay said "see if Andrew Cassese wants to be a judge". Great idea, Joe! We sent Andrew a message, and he was totally down to be a guest judge! Without hesitation, we booked a room at the HOTel cORAL eSEXx, and passed over the gavel to Andrew! After a month off, it's been a while since we did a "best of" month, and we forgot just how closely contested these months can be. Since Joe suggested Andrew to be on the show, he came equipped with the best of October, 1983! Our good pal Beau Becraft is back in the fold, and we put him right in his wheelhouse with an October 1995 that only Beau could deliver. Rounding out the panel, Mancrush comes with a spooky October, 1978! Andrew brings out his inner Wormser, and utilized his superior intellect to navigate this extremely close battle of decades! In this episode you might find out: Wormsers fondest memories from being a tri-lamb, a restaurant that broaches on judge pandering, a major band plays a show for three people, Andrew interrupts a bronco chase, Joe surprises no one by bringing more death, the birth of the stink palm, real Bond goes bootleg Bond, an independent movie kills the competition, the Jets get embarrassed by an expansion team, evil robot clones takeover Magic Mountain, Tony Manero was not the best costume of 1978, a Yokozuna doubleheader no one asked for, a computer program kills the typewriter, douche brothers create a masterpiece, Mancrush duets with Wormser, Captain Lou makes a cameo, Andrew is NOT Bret Spiner, the difference between Adams College and Fort Lauderdale, Wormer cleans up at the Greek games, Wormser's stand-in shows up intoxicated, and what was it like to be a kid on the set of Revenge of the Nerds?

We're baaaaaaaaaaaaack! Vacation is over and it's time to get back to the gameplay! This week, we wanted to make you "completely miserable"! That being said, we brought the worst of September to the table! To make things not so miserable, we also brought along the lead vocalist of the band Lit! Ajay Popoff was kind enough to sit down and judge this battle of duds from September 1976, 1987, and 1999. After a long day of songwriting, Ajay was primed to sit behind the bench and swing that mighty gavel. Mike Ranger is back, and he's his own worst enemy with his putrid offerings from September 1976! The rubbish doesn't end there, Drew Zakmin went rummaging through September 1999's trash heap, and found some real turds! Rounding out this trifecta of inferiority, Mancrush steps to the plate with the worst of September of 1987! Thanks for sticking around! It felt like an eternity since our last retro battle, but we're back. Ajay was a great dude, and you could tell the guys were making things tough with a smorgasbord of atrocity. In this worst of extravaganza, you'll most likely hear things about: a television show that Mr. T couldn't even save, playing instruments on Pamela Anderson, Mike Ranger hates telethons, Skeet Ulrich in 1999's version of Speed, Drew brings more death and destruction, James Woods at his sleaziest, a progressive Redd Foxx tries to save the day, soul patches are the devil's work, a band's lapse of reason, scabs to the rescue, a Beatle gets sued, riding lumber at Woodstock 99, a giant return to television falls flat, a show that nobody heard of, Vestron video gets the shaft and then gives it back, Drew hates a beloved holiday classic, Mike brings an amazing hot product that confuses everyone, what life is like for a musician during the pandemic, and what famous band stole one of Lit's ideas while sharing a tour bus?!

Next week we return to our regularly scheduled programming. But first, we wanted to share this epic blast from the past with you! You'll laugh (and maybe cry), as we explore the retro roots of Dueling Decades with you. With that said, we set the flux capacitor back a few years to the early days of the show! It's that time Marc James and Mancrush were astonished by the amazing list of movies that then co-host Jay Biglove had never seen (or even heard of)! The guys could not pass-up this hilarious opportunity to have Jay tell us and the listeners what he thinks the plots of these movies are. Jay bases his synopsis solely on the title, and then shocks us with what little he knew about them! Hear new versions of some of your favorite 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s VHS classics as they can only be told by Jay! I guarantee you're going to lose your mind. Marc and Mancrush listen in as Jay Biglove breaks down "Breakin’", but not the version you have ever seen (or anyone else for that fact)! Find out who joined an underground fight club and what Jets' quarterback was a hall of fame speedster! Does Richard Branson have a death wish and should Macaulay Culkin lean on me or stand by me? For some reason, Jay thinks Se7en is secretly a movie about gambling addiction and that Lane Myer was on an impossible mission! Jay still does not know who the puppet master is (even though he was there when we interviewed Charles Band) and may never figure out who the substitute is....but he thinks Camron Diaz may have something to do with it. You will never believe who Jay thinks was in Orgazmo. We promise you will never see these movies in the same light.  Please don't forget to subscribe and review!
