Episode 211 : My Pizza is Crushing the Hat

William’s been ill. So watch out for germs on this episode. But otherwise, it’s a good one. We talk about a lot of things. TV and movies, the Great Muppet War of 202X, and casting our own biopics. Good times. Enjoy!

    Anonymous #1 was me. Someday I will remember to consistently sign my emails 🙂

    I was thinking about it because I find myself rewatching the first couple of seasons of Veronica Mars (which is on the PIVOT network), almost every weekend while I do chores or projects. I don’t seem to get tired of it.

    But my son was rewatching Lost, and pretty much ever since the end of the series, I find I don’t want to watch again, even though I rewatched it while it was an ongoing series.

    I also read and watch things over and over again that I teach, and I find I never get tired of them and I sometimes find things in them I hadn’t noticed before. I know some people say to me that analyzing takes the enjoyment out of books or movies, but I guess I must like the analysis so much that the stories don’t get old. Also I think there’s the sense of the characters/worlds being familiar and comfortable.

    I’ve pretty much only ever stopped teaching things when I find I can’t get over the strong emotional response I have to them–that happened when teaching the films “The Bicycle Thief” and the novel “Beloved.”

    OK, I’m not sure that I know who would win but I don’t think it’s as much of a slam dunk for The Muppet Show muppets.

    First, I was wondering when you guys were going to remember that Sesame Street has someone with super powers. Plus they have someone with supernatural powers!

    They also have youth and size and number of monsters (as Tony was noting).

    And yes, the Muppet Show muppets have mad scientists (but see above, super powers–usually in those show downs, super powers>mad science). And they have a berserker. But my impression of cookie monster is that he is similarly in the berserker class if given the right motivation. And he might not ever actually eat the cookies, but they sure do crumble…

    (Tony’s impression of Ernie was hilarious. I so want to see the Ken Burns documentary of this.)

    I like the idea of Robbie Coltrane for Tony.

    For Will, Ellen de Generes is a great idea! (Though she’d have to wear lifts.)

    I also like Chris Cooper or Sam Elliot.

    I have to agree with Sam Elliot, I could certainly see that. Ellen did make me laugh and look like a psycho though. If the hat listener base is included as it was in a earlier version of this question, I loved Tony’s idea of Louie C.K. as me and Patton Oswald as Veremond.

    Moon Landing Deniers: That bit wouldn’t be so funny if it weren’t true.

    E-words: Here you go and you’re welcome.

    Briar Rose: Woooo!

    Pilotfish? Wasn’t William’s old band, Pilothouse?

    ER: Criminy! Well I’m glad you’re feeling better now and accept this as a reasonable excuse for you not updating on Briar Rose.

    Pizza: Falbo’s Pepperoni & Bacon. I’m not familiar with the brand but the toppings sound good.

    Indians eating American sweets: Thanks for posting the video, that was most amusing.

    Tony’s new game/survey: What kind of game?

    What shows do you find rewatchable? I don’t rewatch a lot of TV shows, I do that more with movies as TV shows are too big a time commitment. In either case, the ones I tend to rewatch tend have large ensemble casts. That way on my various rewatches, I can focus on different characters to have differences to watch for.

    Muppets vs. Sesame Street: Really, no mention of Mr. Snuffleupagus? That dude would just stomp the Muppets flat. Plus while (non-super) Grover isn’t what I call reliable; I think he’d be a nasty/dirty fighter (hiding in ambushes, knifing the enemy in the back, etc.).
