In honor of our 100th episode, it has been decided that the malignant influence of the show should now extend far beyond our earthly bounds. So, your handsome hosts have rocketed into the deepest reaches of space to spread their vile commentary on 1981’s Galaxy of Terror. The Master has spoken! So enter the wet black hole and receive movie background, Eddie Albert Junior hatred, old man moments, fictional planets for carnal misconduct, picking on sacred cows, Jason’s love of Red Shoe Diaries, magic psychedelic beer, sexual assault in movies, film opinions changing over time, and other celestial silliness. Your countdown to Hell is about to begin. So, start drinking now!
You have received a transmission of unknown origin. The course of your journey has been interrupted for three hours in the darkness of space, in which no one can hear you scream. Your special order is to return with our commentary on 1979’s Alien. All other priorities are rescinded as your handsome hosts celebrate Terror Transmission’s 4th anniversary. You’ll also have plenty of time before the emergency destruct system reaches zero to enjoy film background, misunderstood genius, movie tech vs. modern-day tech, science fiction’s influence on actual tech, machine vs. man vs. monster, “face hugging”, Matt Meets The Plush Godzilla, token vs. token, dictator directors, comparison to Aliens and other primordial pustulence. This is Matt and Jason, signing off.
High atop the icy mountain peaks, the tentacled terror awaits you. Given the circumstances, there isn’t much time to descend the face of that terrible cliff. But, you do have an hour or two to spare for a breath of fresh air known as 1958’s The Crawling Eye. Avalanches are the least of your worries as you survive the harsh conditions of movie background, the crawling fly, the return of British evil, tacky Americana, Jason’s type of guy, the Germans and their twisted naughty films, the NEW chosen land, pseudoscientific quackery, another out-of-the-blue Bond rant, eugenics, and other radioactive freaks of nature. That’s right. Nasty business. Very nasty.
The funeral is about to begin. Never mind the scurrying creatures and flying weaponized spheres. Just bow your head and hang on tight as Matt and Jason open the portal to 1979’s Phantasm. You might think that when you die, you go to Heaven, but you’ll actually come to us for movie trivia, ’70s dirtbag guys, why modern cars suck, Matt’s intentionally bad French, hair helmets, bachelorette parties gone wild, dwarf vs. midget vs. little person, unisex names, and other things that are little, brown and low to the ground. It’s definitely going to be a hot time. Hot as love. You know?
Teleportation can have some odd side effects. You might start sprouting strange hairs or even acquire the ability to climb all over the walls. If these and other symptoms persist, you should listen immediately to our helpful commentary on 1986’s The Fly. Although your handsome hosts are not actual scientists, they will professionally guide you through film facts, improbable user interfaces in cinema, Jason’s magical journey through someone else’s beard, post-coital decorum, judging hairstyles, science over belief, the BrundleFly / Michael Jackson connection, Matt trying J&B for the first time and other means by which to make your flesh crazy. So, take a deep penetrating dive into our plasma pool, and we’ll see you on the other side.
Everybody needs some change now and again, to get away from it all and become someone else. Or… something else. So, enter the disintegration chamber and your handsome hosts will see you on the other end with their recombinant commentary for 1958’s The Fly. Sometimes you have to destroy in order to create, and Matt and Jason do their share of breaking down movie background, math wizards, dumb horror podcasts, the perils of Canadian French, heavy metal facelifts, the hotness of crying girls, repressed ’50s housewives, tips for finding sex entertainment in Quebec, post-1985 James Bond hate, and other questionable experiments. But, don’t worry. They wouldn’t harm anything… not even a fly.
It seems the snatching just won’t STOP! So, once more, Matt and Jason rain intergalactic spooge upon you, but this time with their commentary on the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. So lie back, drift off to sleep, and let the duplication begin through movie background and trivia, urban paranoia, San Francisco nostalgia, anti-religious metaphor, the “sensitive male” ploy, Sutherland’s mustache, the sex lives of pod people, government distrust, “flapjacks” and other pills that you should pop just like candy. And remember, it’s more than a podcast… it’s a conspiracy!
Ever feel like the people around you — your family, your friends, your lovers — just don’t seem themselves lately? Sure, you could blame the economy or the doldrums of daily life. Or… maybe they AREN’T themselves! Maybe they’re beings from another world bent on mediocrity and apathy. Sound entertaining? Well, of course it is when you unwillingly absorb our commentary for the 1956 science fiction classic, Invasion of the Body Snatchers. So, WAKE UP and let two grumpy old men plant some ideas in your heads, such as movie background, drugging your kids, rooster loops, making a tasty Manhattan, herd conformity versus individuality, the hotness of crying girls, and other alarming claims. Of course, if you fail to understand, then the same incredible terror will strike at YOU! That’s right, you’re NEXT!
Konichiwa! Now drop those sushi rolls because terror’s coming to Tokyo once more and only Matt and Jason can truly bring you the kaiju assault with their commentary on the 1964 release of Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster. Like a cross-dressing Venusian, we reveal way too much, including movie trivia, the human side of monster films, cooperating co-hosts, girls who are funny (and hot), stereotypes, Jason’s strange “cleansing” diet, how to become Emperor of Japan, “get-along” juice and other stir-fried shenanigans. It ain’t over ’til the Mothra Twins sing and, once they do, get ready for some recently-watched DVD talk from your handsome hosts. OHIO!
Ladies and gentlemen! You have been called here again to receive further information from the farthest reaches of our galaxy. We will relay teleradio commentary for the 1958 interplanetary monstrosity, It! The Terror From Beyond Space. Once assumed to be lost in the cosmos, Matt and Jason are still at the helm, guiding their metallic missile straight into movie trivia, Jason’s endless list of “favorite” movies, getting around sodomy laws, George Lucas’s neck, the Occupy Pantyless Women movement, quack science in films and other murderous Martian madness. Following touchdown, your handsome crew will debrief you on their recently watched DVDs. Enjoy. But make sure you close that darn hatch!
