“Crystal Blue-Haired Persuasion” (Season 30, Episode 23)

In an unprecedented first, the guys take a look at the most recent (later years-iest?) episode of the Simpsons they possibly can with this season’s finale. They also continue to hype up a special anniversary that’s around the bend…

“The Last Traction Hero” (Season 28, Episode 9)

Wow. Just…wow. We’ve seen some weird plot decisions in some of the episodes we’ve covered in this podcast’s short run so far, but this one really takes the cake. And what a bitter cake it is!

The Bondies (Season 1 Finale)

For the final episode of our first season, we do something a little different. We make an award show!! It’s the perfect way to look back at all the films, and drinks we’ve enjoyed so far. We decide the victors in numerous categories, along with some help from our listeners. All while “enjoying” classic vodka martinis (and a bunch of olives.)

“The Yellow Badge of Cowardge” (Season 25, Episode 22)

After another hiatus (what a year for podcast-derailing life events) the guys are finally back! In today’s episode they tackle a pretty good Simpsons installment, while also wondering if we’re all eventually going to be replaced by memes in the future.

046 – Dirty Daniel (S: 1, E:1)

“Mr. Irresistible” (Season 1, Episode 1)

This is a weird one, folks. In an effort to cleanse their pallets of the Simpsons stinkers they’ve recently encountered, Pat and Craig thought it would be funny to take a look at the first episode of the ill-begotten Michael Richards Show. And it was funny alright, but not “Ha-Ha” funny. Strap yourselves in for a bumpy one!

“Black Eyed, Please” (Season 24, Episode 15)

Pat and Craig hike up their short-pants and do their darnedest to not lose their minds during this strange, Frankenstein’s monster of an episode. Also, apologies for the audio quality…we have no idea what happened there.

044 – Crippling Existential Crisis (S: 26, E:5)

“Opposites O-Frack” (Season 26, Episode 5)

The Simpsons swerve back into “Issues” territory, with this episode which tackles fracking. You can probably guess how it goes.

007 – Diamonds Are Forever

Time to play a little game called “where are the frickin’ diamonds?!” We bid farewell to Sean Connery in perhaps the most polarizing film we’ve explored yet: the silly Las Vagas romp known as Diamonds Are Forever. And we cheer Sean Connery’s goodbye from the show with a Black Velvet cocktail.

043 – Wafting on a Zephyr

“Love Is A Many Strangled Thing” (Season 22, Episode 17)

Pat and Craig go back in time to the year 2011! They talk about their past lives, Pat’s new belief in the occult, and a fantastic episode from that year.

“Simpsorama” (Season 26, Episode 6)

After last week’s stinker and dark contemplations, Pat and Craig turn to alcohol to make it through their next outing. And wouldn’t you just know it: this crossover episode is actually amazing! Isn’t that always the way?

006 (Part 2) – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

George Lazenby might be a one-and-done Bond, but we’re not done talking about this movie! It’s the exciting conclusion to our 2 part “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” epic! What did we think about this all-new, all-different Bond movie? And about the film’s controversial ending? We slam back another Tim Tam Slam and talk all about it!
