love the Don't Tell Mom episode.... as far as the water gun.... there were a whole line of Rambo M16s, Uzis, AK 47s.... all automatic water guns. They passed like a law or something where kids gun toys could not look realistic.... then came Super Soakers and bright colors.

Love Tripp and Andrew, I really enjoy their in-depth analysis on films that I grew up with. Yes, they regularly go so far down the winding off topic road that you forget the subject of the episode, but usually it is an entertaining tangent.

I could almost forgive Tripp his arrogance if he weren't such a bully to Andrew. Made me cringe.

The basics, please.

I am a big podcast fan and I grew up in the 80s, so it sounded like the perfect podcast. But this one does not have the minimum attention to important details, like how annoying it is to hear someone who is too close to the mic. Listened to 5 seconds and stopped.

Description

Tripp and Andrew Laino have been watching movies together since 1992, and making fun of them together since 1999, when a rainy afternoon of babysitting turned into 8 hours of cheesy science fiction and jokes. Raised on a strict diet of 80s movies, the pair have an undying love for the decade and all of the weird, wonderful cinema therein, despite barely being there for it. Every other week (since 2014) they dissect a movie and the bizarre cinema quirks of 30-odd years ago.
