90’s Kids – Episode004
And we’re back, hope you had a good summer. Aaron and Brian discuss parental controls and laugh about the lack of them they faced back in the 90’s. Why were we gone? Surgery for Aaron (feel free to mock his new lisp on twitter), technical difficulties on our audio. Perhaps they’ll come back as lost episodes when we need emergency filler.
Brian goes through his recommendations of shows: Alan Covert, Superbad, Grandma’s Boy. Freaks & Geeks. Aaron continues to have missed way to much film and tv in the last decade. We also discover we seem to be developing a format. Aaron has an actual recommendation with Parks and Recreation. Ron Swanson is a stud. Aziz Ansari and John Malaney are the go to stand ups of the week.
Johnny Mnemonic sparked Aaron’s book recommendations with Neuromancer. Get your free book here http://www.onefootover.com/freebook Cyberpunk and fantasy are this week’s focus. Brian is getting dragged into the Wheel of Time and Aaron has opinions as a former fan who never finished the full series. We’re going through The Eye of the World.

A new movie is on the way! link Jim Henson brings up Fragglerock and Ben Folds Five video The Dark Crystal director quit, which brings us to all these sequels and reboots of 80’s and 90’s films. link Does the Dark Crystal need a sequel (spoiler: no). Both of us weren’t impressed by the Evil Dead reboot. Aaron shares tales of his manliness in the face of horror movies. Army of Darkness returns! Trailer Torchwood is brought up. Aaron is technically correct (the best kind of correct) about John Barrowman.

Liam Neeson and Johnny Depp With all these reboots and revamps what works and what doesn’t? Chris Pratt gets mentioned twice this week with his work on Guardians of the Galaxy. Video rentals are still a thing at least in the Albuquerque. We poured out a grande for Borders.
