AVSEPod Episode 59: WKRP in Cincinnati - "Turkeys Away"


Gobble gobble everyone! For this year's Very Special Thanksgiving episode, the Aluminum Four gather round to discuss WKRP in Cincinnati's "Turkeys Away", an episode featuring several old AVSE friends in which a radio promotion involving turkeys lands with (several) thuds. Along the way, we reveal our favorite meats, try to figure out who's doing what at the WKRP station, and talk a lot about...the Herculoids.

Welcome back boils & ghouls to another spine-tingling Halloween installment of "A Very Special Episode".

AVSEPod Episode 57: Freddie's Nightmare - "Missing Persons"


One, two, Freddie's coming for you...

Hello, boils & ghouls, in this week's spoooky episode, we plunge into the dreamscape to review an episode from the horror anthology series Freddie's Nightmare, in which a babysitter with body image issues transforms into a pig monster & eats a kid, but then it turns out it's all just a little girl's dream, and then that's girl's dad gets stuck in someone else's life, then dies, or not, but it doesn't matter, because it's all a dream, or maybe it's not. Join Ryan, Carolyn & Austin as they debate what's real and what not, and also discuss inappropriate babysitter interactions, talking food, and the sexiest instrument.

AVSEPod Episode 56: Arthur - "Shelter from the Storm Parts 1 & 2"


This week, we're reviewing Arthur - not the 1981 Dudley Moore/Liza Minelli film with the catchy theme song, but rather the PBS Kids animated series that has had an astonishingly long run. Specifically, we're discussing "Shelter from the Storm", in which Hurricane...Sadie...strikes whatever town it is Arthur lives in, upending the lives of the titular aardvark and his friends. Along the way, the Aluminum Four talk child labor, fear of the wind (it's a thing!), and bears that don't look like bears as we attempt to weather the storm.

AVSEPod Episode 53: Seinfeld - "The Puerto Rican Day"


Our summer "Bad Episode, Good Show" series concludes this week, as we check out one of the greatest sitcoms of all time (allegedly...) by discussing Seinfeld's "The Puerto Rican Day", an episode so controversial it rarely gets aired in syndication. But is it, really? Join us as we ask, in our best Jerry Seinfeld voice, "what's the deal with the controversy in this episode?",  talk way too much about laser pointers, and take a lot of shots at Michael Richards.
