Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk about the first four episodes of the BBC series The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy from 1981. After debuting as a successful radio play on BBC Four, Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was adapted as a novel to be followed by this BBC miniseries. These first four episodes cover the first book in the six-book trilogy (!!!). Several, but not all, of the actors from the radio series reprised their role for this show. After waking up to a bulldozer advancing upon his home, Arthur Dent (Simon Jones) tries to stop it. Before the day is over, he's found it his best friend Ford Prefect (David Dixon) is really an alien, been thrown out of an air-lock into space, and discovered the true origins of Earth. The typically low BBC budget doesn't help things, although the hand-drawn animated sequences of the guide are quite a treat as is the witty, droll dialogue.

Mat finds the pilot of the new BBC series Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency to be too violent for its own good. On the other hand, he feels the new Netfilx series Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is far superior to Wet Hot American Summer: First Day at Camp. Thrasher felt Get Out lived up to the hype and insists you watch it at once. He also caught enough of Ascent to Hell to realize it's dreadful.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk about Disney's Fantasia 2000 with guest Alexander Miller (Writer for Battleship Pretension, Talk Film Society, and Film Inquiry). Disney had attempted to make a sequel to Fantasia for years. After many false starts and a lengthy development process, Fantasia 2000 is the final result. Containing only one clip from the original film, Fantasia 2000 is much shorter than the original feature. Different celebrity hosts introducing the segments proves to be more of a distraction than anything else. Highlights include a segment featuring George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue illustrated in the style of Al Hirschfeld and an anime-inspired segment featuring Igor Stravinsky's Firebird Suite. This film has an timed-exclusive run in IMAX before rolling out to regular movie theaters. 

Alexander has been diving into the Fox cartoon Bob's Burgers. Mat isn't crazy about Jackie Mason: The Ultimate Jew, although he finds Mason's speech patterns and comic delivery a fascinating relic of a bygone era. Thrasher has been rewatching the flicks in the Alien franchise and finds some of the sequels better upon repeated viewings.

Host Mat Bradley-Tschirgi starts things off with an interview with indie musican and Sequelcast 2 theme performer Marc with a C to talk about his upcoming vinyl release of Shock Treatment Interpretations

Then, hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher talk about Disney's Fantasia with guest Alexander Miller (Writer for Battleship Pretension, Talk Film Society, and Film Inquiry). Walt Disney sunk a lot of money into this artsy combination of classical music and animation, but it took years for Fantasia to make its money back. There's a lot of iconic sequences in here; The Sorcerer's Apprentice segment with Mickey Mouse later inspired a live-action movie of the same name starring Jay Baruchel and Nicolas Cage.

Alexander loves diving into Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project No. 2 box set. Mat enjoys the music drops and lighter tone of the new Netflix series Glow. Thrasher fired up a camp sci-fi car chase cult favorite Megaforce

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Star Trek Beyond from 2016. J.J. Abrams was unable to direct this flick, so Paramount decided to go with Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6). The Enterprise crew goes on shore leave, but learns of a distress call. After investigating the matter at hand, dangerous alien ships tear the Enterprise to bits. The crew is stranded on a mysterious planet fraught with danger. Can Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), McCoy (Karl Urban), and the rest escape? 

Mat and Thrasher love the new Castlevania animated series on Netflix. Thrasher gave Plan 9 from Outer Space another look and enjoys its charms despite its turgid pacing. Mat was let down by Masterminds, the latest flick from Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite). He much preferred an earlier comedy by Hess, Gentlemen Broncos.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss The Hangover Part 3 from 2013. Todd Phillips wraps up his comedy trilogy by changing the genre on the audience. Instead of a comedy, we get more of an action heist picture. Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) has broken out of prison and needs help from his buddy Alan (Zach Galifianakis) to finish off a gold heist. Alan drags his drunken pals along for the ride, but there's a catch. Mob boss Marshall (John Goodman) has kidnapped their hapless friend Doug (Justin Bartha), and he wants Mr. Chow delivered to him on a silver platter. Where does the Wolfpack's loyalties lie?

Mat praises the documentary Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of The National Lampoon. It's a comprehensive look at how Harvard Lampoon spun off into National Lampoon, and how they proceeded to make legendary stage revues, books, magazines, and movies. Thrasher enjoys the first half of the Ryan Reynolds science-fiction motion picture Life, but thinks it gets worse the more it focuses on the alien onboard.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss The Hangover Part 2 from 2011. Once again directed by Todd Phillips, The Hangover Part 2 is largely a remake of the first film taking place in Thailand instead of Las Vegas. This time around, the crew searches high and low for Teddy (Mason Lee), Stu's new brother-in-law. There's a notable cameo in the film from character actor Paul Giamatti as an undercover agent.

Mat enjoys the Larry McMurtry TV Western miniseries Dead Man's Walk, particularly its supporting cast which includes Edward James Olmos, F. Murray Abraham, and Brian Dennehy. It's first of two prequel miniseries to Lonesome Dove; the other one is Comanche Moon. Thrasher catches the final episode of Powerless which has a fun cameo from the late Adam West. He also has been enjoying the X-Men spin-off show Legion

18 - The Hangover (2009)

00:0000:00

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss The Hangover from 2009. Directed by Todd Phillips, The Hangover details a stag party gone wrong in Sin City. Groomsmen Alan (Zach Galifianakis), Phil (Bradley Cooper), and Stu (Ed Helms) scour Las Vegas to find the groom Doug (Justin Bartha) before its too late.

Thrasher enjoys going to a RiffTrax Live show focused on shorts. Mat is befuddled by the recent revival of The Gong Show hosted by an uncredited Mike Myers in character as Tommy Maitland. Thrasher gives props to the Stan Lee hosted reality show Who Wants to Be a Superhero? Mat recalls watching the odd Dustin Diamond episodes of Celebrity Fit Club.

Hosts Mat Bradley-Tschirgi and William Thrasher discuss Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth from 1992. Everybody's favorite Cenobite Pinhead (Doug Bradley) is trapped in the Pillar of Souls. After a nightclub owner purchases the pillar, investigative reporter Joey Summerskill (Terry Farrell) starts to research the occult object. Lo and behold, Pinhead is revived with a mostly new army of Cenobites: Barbie (Peter Atkins), Camerahead (Ken Carpenter), CD (Eric Willhelm), Chatterer (Robert Hammond), and Pistonhead (Kevin Bernhardt). Can Joey stop him from causing the titular hell on earth? 

Mat gabs about the recent documentary from Jon Schnepp, The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?. An in-depth look at a Superman movie we were closing to getting in the late 1990s, this detailed docu shows concept art, rehearsal footage, and costume tests from what could have been an interest take on Supes starring Nicolas Cage and directed by Tim Burton. Thrasher yammers on about the just cancelled super-hero themed workplace sitcom Powerless and feels it could have been the start of something great.
