TMBDOS! Episode 70: “Tommy” (1975) & “Parents” (1989).
August 10, 2016Posted by on
Lee and Daniel are taking a couple-episode break before jumping in to what will be an extensive Spaghetti Western series. For this episode they are joined by their friend, fellow podcaster, musician, and published writer Kit Power, who suggested the two films for review this time: “Tommy” (1975) & “Parents” (1989). Because this was recorded a bit later in the week and way much earlier in the day than what Lee and Dan are used to, the whisky hits them much harder. They fully blame Kit for this, BTW. At any rate, the conversation goes deep in to both films, and a lot of both fun and serious issues are brought up. This might be one of the best of all time for the podcast when it’s all said and done, even if there’s a few audio glitches here and there (sorry for that, but it’s nowhere near un-listenable). Also covered: listener comments & what they’ve watched as of late, and Kit get’s to answer the One Actor’s Filmography desert island question.
