Frankenfake

Meet Joe, a special effects artist "tricked" by his "friends" -- a "pedophile" and an "adulterer" -- into going on a "reality" TV show. 

Okay, all the quotations are going to get tiring, but just assume that pretty much EVERYTHING you hear from Joe should be in air quotes. 

From flailing four-mile runs and frantic phone calls to verbally harassing a guy just trying to eat a salad, this documentary proves that while you may be small in stature, you can still be huge on harboring grudges and maintaining a choke hold on resentment. 

Along the way Joe DOES indirectly give our podcast a reason to exist... but not before taking a dump on a Goonie.

Oh, Joe.

Featuring special guest co-host Jaime Hunt, who after finding this film is dangerously closed to getting herself banned from using the Hunt household Amazon Prime account.

We're suffering through and reporting back on Frankenfake, available to stream on Amazon Prime.

California 90420 (The Musical?)

It’s 2010 and Proposition 19 could fully legalize marijuana in California. There are intelligent arguments on both sides of the issue. There are serious debates.

But right now it’s time for a dubstep break. And another dubstep break. And some rapping. And then more dubstep. And then hippy educational songs about weed. And then more dubstep.

This is a documentary that wants to be a musical that bills itself as a comedy that is actually the script treatment for the next Jurassic Park movie.

If it sounds like this film is all over the place, a lot of the blame (and, to be honest, credit) can be laid at the feet of Ix, a younger-than-you-would-guess stoner who makes bongs from produce and humps the display cases at her local marijuana dispensary. When she’s not advancing the culinary arts by putting marijuana in literally everything she makes, she’s popping bed bugs, slapping the D, and … writing for NASA? Wait, what?

Thrill as two pot virgins who nevertheless support the legalization of marijuana muddle their way through the music and musings of a movement. Along the way, we’ll also explore parental acceptance and disapproval, discuss bad names for your daughter, and listen to So. Much. Dubstep. 

Welcome to California 90420. You can’t buy love, but you CAN buy a lot of weed.  

Featuring special guest co-host Jaime Hunt, who somehow has a gift for finding these cinematic train wrecks.

We’re suffering through and reporting back on California 90420, available to stream for free on Amazon Prime.

The Super Truest Stories Strike Back

Nothing says "summer vacation" like your favorite series presenting you with a beautiful clip show, and by that metric, this is going to be the best summer vacation ever! 

From 50s sex ed and dead ice men to pyramid power and dry hole drillers, join us as we read Voltron's face, stalk Bigfoot with Robert Stack, and openly discuss purr addiction. 

That's right. We've collected some of our favorite moments from episodes 11-20. Here's your chance to experience the weird and wonderful moments from these episodes that still make us chuckle, now assembled in one convenient place. 

Of course it's not a Super True Stories "Best Of" if it doesn't finish with a music number. 

We'll be back in two weeks with a fresh, homegrown, legal-in-Colorado episode!

If Only CATS Could Talk

Meet Frankie and Browser, two cats who have nothing to do with each other. Their only connection appears to be that their owners both use Facebook. What a small world!

This might be the first time a movie has ever been padded out by shoehorning in a cat from Minnesota, and then to top it all off, they didn't even think to title this trainwreck, "A Tail of Two Kitties." What a missed opportunity! And speaking of missing things...

When Frankie the Cat goes missing, he can only be found by Jack, renowned(?) cat tracker, possible Craigslist stalker, and inventor of the Cat Flasher, the world's dumbest way to find a missing cat. Jack is using every means at his disposal, including his own cat allergies, to find Frankie before it's time to stare into the middle distance and move on to the next case. 

Along the way, we discuss a librarian who hates leash laws as much as she loves vibrators, we consider this year's Forbes list of Most Influential Cats, and we posit that the Game of Thrones showrunners have seen this documentary and took it way too much to heart. 

All's well that ends well, but we gotta cut this short and get inside because the mosquitoes are starting to bite. 

Featuring special guest co-host Jaime Hunt, who surely tested the strength of the Hunt marriage with this documentary find.

Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee

When is a cake a war crime? When it’s made by Sandra Lee, of course.

In her defense, war crimes aren’t her only semi-homemade disasters. She also makes nice lies, nice knock-offs, nice roadkill, and nice orifices.

It’s all enough to give Axel painful flashbacks of having to fawn over the craftiness of that one aunt who brings something creative to the potluck, while Dave is pondering the math on what happens when you combine 70% pre-bought stuff with 30% fresh ingredients and 30% cultural insensitivity.

We’re not going to spoil the ending, but we also learn one heck of an insult.

So grab your copy of Gremlins 2 and any alcohol you’ve managed to hide from Sandra Lee because we're suffering through and reporting back on YouTube clips of Sandra Lee available to stream for free, plus the “Feisty Fiesta” episode of her show available to stream on Amazon Prime.

Psychic: A Gift of Grace

Meet Gracie Rae. She's a psychic, an actor (not that the two have ANYTHING AT ALL to do with each other), and the subject of her very own documentary. 

Thrill as Gracie Rae goes out on a limb and guesses that a woman has body image issues. Be astonished to learn a person remembers the name of her grandmother. Be disturbed as Gracie Rae bases a significant amount of her theology on the words of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Along the way, we discuss ghosts, inconsistent drop shadows, canned potatoes, and ego. So. Much. Ego. 

The only thing we agree with Gracie Rae about is that going to her for a psychic reading really would be a last resort. 

Featuring special guest co-host Jaime Hunt, and surprise appearances by Bigfoot, Chuck E. Cheese, and Gracie Rae's acting reel.

We're suffering through and reporting back on Psychic: A Gift of Grace, available to stream on Amazon Prime.

Discovering Bigfoot

It's been awhile since we've been to the Church of Bigfoot, but you'll find us in the front row on Easter Sunday!

For today's service, we're headed to the Canadian wilds to frolic with the least skeptical "skeptic" we've ever met as he shows us the most dubious Bigfoot evidence yet. Questionable tree breaks, tree structures, and tracks are par for the Bigfoot course, but this is Canada, and in Canada, Bigfoot whistles, steals apples, and might actually be the Blair Witch. 

Theological discussions ensue as we attempt to reconcile New Testament nature-communing Bigfoot with an Old Testament velociraptor. We find a way to preserve the liturgy, but are then spotted by Daywatchers and forced to sacrifice an academic. 

Guest starring a drone, a ghillie suit, a university professor who should know better, and what kinda appears to be Canadians in black face. (We really wish we were joking on that last one).

Maybe next Easter we'll just stay home.

We're suffering through and reporting back on Discovering Bigfoot, available to stream on Netflix.

Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club

This is not the gritty post-apocalyptic Lindsay Lohan reboot featuring Patrick Stewart we had hoped for, but the claws are definitely out!

This is Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club, the beachiest, Greekiest, and weakiest (just go with it) reality show we've ever seen. Thanks, MTV!

Thrill as you witness interchangeable hot people take off their shirts and do interchangeable hot things while a couple 30-somethings who should not be in management encourage everyone to be their hottest and most interchangeable best. 

Also featuring Pannos, the lamest Avengers supervillain, and guest starring Lindsay Lohan's brand (whatever the heck that is). 

We're suffering through and reporting back on the first episode of Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club, currently available to stream for free on YouTube if you look hard enough.

Jose Canseco: The Truth Hurts (And So Do His Tweets)

Baseball. It's a sport Axel loves and a yet another sport Dave is pretty sure still exists.

But we're not really talking about baseball here. We're talking about Jose Canseco, and you can't do that without talking about steroids, whistleblowing, Bigfoot, Donald Trump, Jennifer Lopez, bitcoin, aliens from outer space, and ... goats? Yes, goats.

And the only reason we're doing any of that is because we're desperate for attention from Mark McGuire. Are you listening to this Mark? We made this for you, Mark! MARK! 

Join us as we discuss the painful truth and the painful tweets of a man who made a documentary about himself and then somehow won awards for doing so. 

We're suffering through and reporting back on Jose Canseco: The Truth Hurts, available to stream for free for Amazon Prime members.

Plum Island Conspiracy with Jesse Ventura

Nothing says "Spring Break!" like an island adventure with Homeland Security and Jesse Ventura. 

Join us as we swear at llamas, hide from the Montauk Monster, check ourselves for Nazi ticks, and ponder the spectacle of Jesse wrestling with a bear. And maybe also a tornado.

Before it's all said and done, we'll also be pondering a government spokesperson's inappropriate rope tricks and abruptly heading to Kansas to stare at a corn field. 

Worst spring break ever? Maybe that's because all this really boils down to is a rehash of Stephen King's The Stand. 

We're suffering through and reporting back on Inside America's Only Foreign Animal Disease Laboratory: Plum Island on YouTube and Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, Season 2, Episode 1: Plum Island on Vimeo.
