#60: Rick and Morty: Mr. Poopybutthole and Fascist Assholes

Good snobs! How delighted we are to bring you this new episode on the hit TV show, Rick and Morty. Specifically, we focus on Episode 204, "Total Rickall", which Matt and Sean believe is one of the greatest episodes of television of all time. The reason? Partly because of "Pencil-vester". Partly due to Mr. Beauregard ("Marmelade is seeeerved"). But credit shall be given where credit is due: this episode has come to be in thanks to our beloved Mr. Poopybutthole, one of the greatest TV characters of all time. 

While on the surface "Total Rickall" appears to be about an alien parasite that creates false memories in people in order to spread and take over the planet, Matt and Sean's hermeneutic reads between these lines. What might this infectious parasite be an allegory for? Fascism, no doubt! 

Join us for this rip-roaring interdimensional journey through the land of a cartoon sure to live on in infamy. And if you haven't seen this episode of Rick and Morty, please stop all you are doing and watch it right now. Praise Be, Mr. Poopybutthole. 

#59: The Last Jedi: Skywalker, Rian Johnson, and the Tit Monster


Hello Listener! We’re so glad to have you around. Have you ever had green milk? Well Luke has. Not long after drinking green milk, Luke blew up. Please don’t blow up. 

Sean and Matt kick it into hyperdrive on this extensive episode that begins in a state of mystery and ends in a state of clarity. That is the miracle that is, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson throws all of Star Wars fandom and Nerdom into a loop(er) with his peculiar take on most people’s favorite myth. And the result is something that peers deep at the dark nature of humanity. 

Don’t be fooled by the bizarreness of TLJ, it has stuff to say. There are touching relationships, self-knowledge, and much less Boyega. Perhaps that is the film’s strength. 

Rey is learning to be a Jedi from Luke, a man who is definitely not her father. Leia flies through space. Po is a douche. Finn is pointless. Dern kicks ass. Kylo wants to wear a mask. Despite these formulaic elements, TLJ speaks broadly about the rise of fascism and charlatans in our society. 

Join us on our Millennium Falcon, brush the dirt from your shoulder, and scream like Chewbacca’s stupid puffin, cuz the shit is about to get totes rizzeal. 

#58: Forrest Gump


Sean and Matt discovered something of the highest form of Snob during this one. A new mission! It is time to write Forrest Gump Fan Fiction. 

Gump is a wonderful Hanks film directed by Bob, Steve’s friend. It covers thousands of years of world history, revealing that Forrest is the most important person in the world. 

Sean and Matt are a bit baffled by this movie. They particularly wonder, why was it made? It is universally loved, well-made, and incredibly iconic. Yet, its purpose seems a mystery. Perhaps, it was all about Sinise. 

Well listener, open up your box of chocolates, grab your paddle, and lace up those sneakers, something is about to bite you!

The General is ready to take you on a ride through history, filled with many, many Hanx yells!
