GARFUNKEL AND OATES: Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci get dirty, sweet, and hilarious

garfunkeloates-banner

We celebrate and mourn GARFUNKEL AND OATES, the genius IFC comedy show starring Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci! Playing fictional versions of themselves who ALSO have a hit comedy folk band, Garfunkel and Oates is a lot more than a Flight of the Conchords redux. We talk about the show’s alternatingly adorable and hilariously dirty jokes, discuss how the show focuses on the differences between Kate and Riki, and pick our favourite songs.

Plus, it’s only eight episodes! Just watch it. WATCH IT!

THEY CAME TOGETHER: Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd CRUSH Hacky Romantic Comedy Tropes

they-came-together-banner

THEY CAME TOGETHER is a rom-com satire for the ages! Directed by David Wain (Wet Hot American Summer!), and starring Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, and everyone you’ve ever really loved, this movie is a surreal look at all the tropes that make a modern romantic comedy.

We talk about the amazing genre skewering, why this alt. comedy style works for Chris where others don’t, and poke fun at all the reviewers who say it’s “too smart for its own good.” Because it’s not. It’s just smart enough for it’s own good, you bean-bags.

Next week: GARFUNKEL AND OATES!

Halloween is around the corner, and Brian and Chris just watched The Conjuring! What better time to discuss all things horror, slasher vs supernatural, horror-movie tension, and of course, The Conjuring. But mostly Ron Livingston’s sweet 70’s sideburns and jacket. Also, we had WILDLY differing opinions about this movie! Our first ever real disagreement! Enjoy.

Also, next week we’re watching IT. Spooky clowns! Tim Curry! OMG! Get hype.
