Mary Poppins famously sang that “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” This week, Joel Murphy and Lars have some depressing television news to discuss, so they’ve set aside their own “spoonful of sugar” at the end of the show to help get through the broadcast.
If you are wondering what the bleak TV news is, it has to do with networks’ intense fear of anything new or creative. Instead of taking risks, TV execs continually reward mediocrity by keeping actors like Jim Belushi, Jerry O’Connell and David Spade employed. If you are wondering what the “spoonful of sugar” is that helps this medicine go down, it involves three attractive actresses and copious amounts of nudity.
Why doesn’t anyone know who Malcolm McDowell is? Will the next Batman movie be in 3D? What does it take to earn Lars’ respect? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
