This is the one hundredth episode and we're all so excited! The only way we could be more blissed out is if someone invented the happiness pill that George Ortega mentions.

On today's show I talk about the eighties' sitcom hit, "Newhart".  I start off talking about how I would and still do run a good catchphrase into the ground (it is a compulsion of mine), then I move onto the show.  I talk about the cast, the creator, the characters, the "location" of the famous Inn, the show's reception, the final episode, its music and much much more. Newhart is an amazing show.  I hope this might encourage people to check it out.

On this episode I talk all about the eighties comedy classic, "Stripes".  I start off explaining why I would watch movies dozens of times when I was younger and why it might still be important to do so.  Then I get into the film.  I talk about the stars of the film, the plot, the production, deleted scenes and much more. It might not seem like it, but I am very aware that I do not have the ability to pronounce Harold Ramis' name correctly. This is not the first time I have recorded...

Considering the ethnic and social makeup of the earliest Christians, this episode also discusses two main problems faced by these followers of Jesus: “afflictions” and the death of fellow-followers of Jesus. This prepares the way for episode three, which will look at how Paul responds to this situation in his letter, known as 1 Thessalonians in the New Testament. This...

On today's show I talk about the 1985 arcade classic, Gauntlet.  I start off talking about how this game helped me save face when I had some misgivings about seeing the Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 in the theater.  Then I talk about the development of the game and its predecessor, Dandy.  I also delve into the game's strategy, game play, reception, sequels, ports and much more.  My sincere apologies to Thyra the Valkyrie whose name I repeatedly fail to mention.
