EftRou 161: Fire Fighters, Vetrinarians, Mindy Kaling

So this week it was just back to Q and I.  We thought with all the big Network up fronts (basically FOX, NBC etc showing off to advertisers what is coming this fall) we should talk about our thoughts of some of the upcoming shows.  Also we kick things off with the Avengers bill for destroying/saving New York.  Sit back turn it up and enjoy the latest episode!

Avengers destruction.

Avengers Assemble an expensive mess...

Avengers Assemble an expensive mess...

So I was reading this the other day and thought it to be rather humorous as well as an excellent topic to talk about with Q as well as get our fans thoughts.  Long story short, the Avengers battle comes to about $160 Billion dollars and is considered an act of God, or as I put it “Puny God”.

Its that wonderful time of the year loved (or hated) by TV fans and advertisers – renewal time.  This year especially is proving to be a unique as many shows are either getting the axe after 8-9 years or have just run the course and its time to move on.  Right now is the time of the year in which most fans like Q and myself hope that some of our beloved shows get picked up (As of this writing FRINGE, Community, Parenthood and others that are our faves made the cut).  While advertisers get to start picking out which shows they are going to back financially for ad placement.  We chat a little about a few of our picks and touch back an episode not long ago where Q and I made some predictions about what we thought would last and what we thought would fail.  Listen in here and tell us your thoughts on what we got right but also tell us if you think we’re right again with our latest picks.

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you. Feel free to join the conversation on Facebook or twitter via @entfortherest. You can also find the crew on twitter: Q (@aka_q), Mike (@CB_Robinson), ShadyTheBiker (@shadythebiker), and me SquareRoss (@SquareRoss).

Until next time stay safe and enjoy your entertainment!

EftRoU 138: Scooter Boy…

In this episode the crew talks about 2 DVD’s:  Larry Crowne (Starring Tom Hanks & Juila Roberts) as well as the “epic vampire movie” The Lost Boys.

Larry Crowne

Universal Pictures

Larry Crowne just came out a few months ago in theaters and we took the time to catch up with it after it just released on DVD.  Larry Crown (Tom Hanks) is the central figure in this story of a man going back to college and at the same time reinventing himself after being laid off from his job a the U-Mart.  Along the way he cross’s paths with a colorful group of people as well as a “Scooter Gang”.  During his time he attends classes taught by Mercedes Tainot (Juila Roberts) & Dr. Matsutani (George Takei) who not only teach him academically but also teach him some interesting life lessons along the way with his new-found friends also attending his classes.

The Lost Boys

Warner Bros. Pictures

Since we figured people needed a good Vampire flick to watch we figured we go back to 1987 and watch The Lost Boys.  This movie we all agreed has aged well like a fine wine and definitely is worth watching again or like we talk about the first time as it was in my (SquareRoss) case.  This film centers around a family that has relocated to California to make a fresh start after a divorce.  No sooner does the family arrive when the older brother Michael (Jason Patric) get into trouble with a local biker gang who is led by David (Kiefer Sutherland) and just so happens to turn out to be a Vampire’s! At the same time Michael’s younger brother Sam (Corey Haim) makes friends Edgar Frog (Corey Feldman) & Alan Frog (Jamison Newlander) who are trying to save us all from the impending evil that is the Vampires in this small town.  We really enjoyed re-visiting this classic film along with seeing the start to promising careers by this young cast including Kiefer Sutherland who would later go on to be in “24” and many other movies directed by Joel Schumacher who also directed this film.

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you.
