This week’s show: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. Superhero movie fatigue. The Night Before. Brooklyn. The Leftovers (plus Damon Lindelof, Lost, Prometheus). Fargo. Jaden Smith. Old-timey renditions of classic rock songs. Enjoy!


3:30 – Breaking down the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer.
12:00 – We talk superhero movie fatigue, and why do all the superheroes have to fight each other now? Can’t they just be friends?!
16:30 – Personal stories with Matt Lieb: Making out with his RA to the sound of Tracy Chapman and Maroon 5, and “The Ghosts of Boners Past.”
20:45 – Matt has some conspiracy theories about the female anatomy vis a vis where the pee comes from.
29:54 – Matt Lieb saw The Night Before, which we discuss briefly, before launching into Brooklyn, which he also saw.
42:15 – We rank Thanksgiving side dishes.
53:00 – The Leftovers. Is it so good that everyone has to take back all the crap they talked on Damon Lindelof?
1:04:00 – Brendan and Matt plug Fargo.
1:09:00 – Jaden Smith’s book of “modern day philosophy” in which he plans to discuss “string theory and chaos theory, but more mystical.” This leads us to “Jaden Smith Bingo,” to determine if we can anticipate the life cycle of a pseudo-celebrity meltdown/evolution into ersatz guru. Discuss.
1:19:30 – Lots of singing for some reason.
1:21:45 – Brendan tests his theory about a 30s phonograph version of Aerosmith’s “Rag Doll.” It was very silly.
1:26:40 – An update from Ben! The phone lines suck in Europe, but he’ll be back to make America great real soon.
