Lee and Daniel are back for their second-to-last installment of this continuation of their look at sex comedies. Covered this time are the dive-in classic “Gas Pump Girls” (1979) & the box office flop from 2004, “EuroTrip”. How exactly does one pump gas in little-to-no clothing? Are all European men rapists? Will absinthe make you see things? All of this and more is pondered in this episode! Also: a new version of the desert island game, listener comments, and what they’ve watched as of late.

Does the Brig Have a Point? (Doctor Who and the Silurians)

Episode 92 BackgroundI’m tired and have a busy day tomorrow, so no clever commentary today. Shana and I chatted “Doctor Who and the Silurians” and basically acted like a sickening married couple. Get it here. (Direct download.) Enjoy.

Squishy-squishy. “White Man Sit Down and Think.” IT Crowd reference. Greatness. Lesbian innovation. “More like Twelve Monkeys.” Noir Who. Peter Myles. Compression. White guys with clipboards. “Not my kink!” No sonic. Coup. The Upside of Dragging Ass. The Chick and the Doctor. Is the Doctor Right? Twilight. Alternate Hulke. Does the Brig have a point? Litter. Not genocide. Interpretation. Ambiguity. Palestinians. Allegory. Complication. Shades of gray. Bessie. One day, even here…. Excuse. Paperwork. Pet dinosaur. Missing. The one peacemaker. Nuance. Mind power in the bedroom. Jabberwocky. Boring biowarfare. Stupid faux-science. Continental drift. A more relevant statement. The Tenth Planet. Shut up. Mistaken title. Daniel was right. What this era looks like. “Is this why we have guests?”

Lee and Daniel continue the sex comedy series. This time they tackle the film Daniel claims is the ‘Citizen Kane’ of the genre in 1984’s “Hardbodies”, and then they look at yet another obscure Canadian production, “Perfect Timing” (1986). Also: Lee briefly covers the short from Astron-6 called “Cool Guys”, which is heavily influenced by “Hardbodies” and similar films… as well as “Jacob’s Ladder”? Listener comments and the other stuff the hosts have watched as of late are also covered.

Lee and Daniel get into the second installment of their return to the podcast’s sex comedy series. This time out they go all the way back to 1973 to talk about the softcore romp, sure to cause a rise in your Levi’s, “The Cheerleaders”, and then they jump ahead to 1986 to check out one of (if not the) most obscure Canadian-made sex comedies, “One Night Only”, and its introduction to the viewer of ‘THE SCARY CAVE’. Also covered: listener comments, what they’ve watched as of late, and a follow-up to a question Lee posed on the Facebook group about the child of Bob and Carol from the film “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice”, covered in the previous episode.
