AVSEPod Episode 84: Degrassi The Next Generation - "Time Stands Still Parts 1 & 2"


This week, we tackle a Very Special episode of one of David's favorite shows, Degrassi: The Next Generation, in which things take a tragic turn when the bullied Rick gets pushed too far (or does he?!?) via a Carrie homage, leading to the birth of an internet meme. Join David, Carolyn & Austin as they tackle a host of Very Special topics, from gun violence to criminal rehabilitation to...house selling.

AVSEPod Episode 83: G.I. Joe - "Knowing is Half the Battle" PSAs


Yo Joe! In this week's episode, Ryan, Carolyn, and Austin enlist to discuss one of the seminal "Very Special" pieces of 80s programming, the G.I. Joe PSAs that taught an entire generation of kids that knowing is half the battle! Listen along as we learn about stopping nosebleeds, avoiding downed power lines, and the importance of using plans when building a tree house. We also post-game Carolyn's wedding, talk cartoon-influenced sexual awakenings, and express concern over some especially-handsy Joes.

This week, Ryan & Austin are joined by two Very Special guests, the hosts of the Star Wars Minute podcast, Alex Robinson & Pete the Retailer.

Join David as he assembles an Away Team consisting of himself, Ryan & Carolyn as they discuss this Very Special episode which attempts to warn us about the dangers of technological advancement on the environment, and also, the dangers of...cat training.

AVSEPod Episode 79: Scorch - You Gaslight Up My Life


This week, we continue "One Season Wonders" with the third (final!) episode of Scorch, a TV show which answers the question nobody asked, "what if Alf, but with a dragon puppet and without the normal rhythms of a sitcom?" Join the Aluminum Four as we discuss the curious late 80s/ early 90s trend of puppet-based sitcoms, try to wrap our heads around the premise of the show which suggests a local ventriloquist would rocket to the top of the media power rankings, and tackle the deeply philosophical question, "if a sitcom doesn't have any jokes, is it still a comedy?".

AVSEPod Episode 78: Cop Rock - Pilot


"One Season Wonders" dances on, as the Aluminum Four tackle one of the more infamous one season shows of all time, Cop Rock, the series which dared to ask "what if a cop show, but also, a musical?", and apparently answered with "sure, but also, the cop show is really crappy." Join Ryan, Carolyn, Austin & David as they talk (and occasionally sing) about the show's awkward politics, ponder who, exactly, is buying babies off the street (and if the answer is just bad, or the worst thing ever) and make so much fun of Randy Newman.
