Episode 50 - Nifty Nifty

Take a long walk down memory lane with Nick and I as we celebrate The O.U.P.'s 50th EPISODE EXTRAVAGANZA! Included in these proceedings: a look back at all the 49 previous episodes, a discussion of the (to date) two lost episodes, and an exploration of the history of profanity. Plus, a special (really quiet, despite all my best editorial efforts) opening musical performance by two music legends! (I warn you. Don't turn up your volume. Just roll with it. You'll thank me later.)

Episode 49 - Chips Oh Boy!

Words cannot sufficiently express my joy, as I finally get to introduce Nick (and you, the lucky listener) to, bar-none, the best cultural satire of the last decade...2001's "Josie and the Pussycats"! ...Avert your disbelieving gaze, fair listener, for here you'll find hilarious consumerism, fabulous cameos, and an original soundtrack that is second-to-none; all in quite possibly "The Best Movie of All-Time!" (part of "No Squeakuel Summer"). (Seriously, folks. SEE IT. It will improve your cinematic life eleventy billion-fold.)

Episode 48 - The Toughest Gay in the Old West

Legend tells of this episode in which Nick and I embark on a conversational journey to analyze our dreams, wax fearful and wondrous about the ocean, concoct the next big western, and profess our love for "True Blood". Plus, a treatise in defense of Ewoks and more classic O.U.P. self-doubt!

Episode 47 - The John Cleese Monkey

Deep in the heart of The Town, the "No Squeakuel Summer" swings on as Nick and I take on 1997's "George of the Jungle"! Marvel as we spend fifteen minutes on the cast list, divert into a forum on coffee, possibly discover a new recurring segment, and pinpoint why one of us really didn't care for this movie. (I'll give you a hint. His name isn't Jeff.) Watch out for that..."Best Movie of All-Time"!

Episode 46 - A Benetton Ad vs. The Aliens

The holiday tradition continues as Nick brings "Cinemantics" with him to join me for a discussion of Roland Emmerich's 1996 masterpiece (yeah, I said it) "Independence Day"! Celebrate America with beautiful destruction, a pastiche of world cultures, incredible music and, of course, ROBERT LOGGIA! Plus, one of the dumbest alternate endings in cinema history!

Episode 45 - Burgabur Business

Nick's tutelage on the merits of crap begins here, as a viewing of the first season of "Mr. Belvedere" leads to an analysis of his 1980s pop culture prowess (or lack thereof), which somehow leads to a discussion of Adam Sandler's place in the future of comedy. We just might live the good life yet...and you will, too!
