Lars makes his triumphant return to the show this week … and he is back with a vengeance. And by vengeance, we mean over-analytical thoughts about television and movies.
Lars and Joel Murphy briefly discuss Tony Scott’s career and his tragic apparent suicide. They also share some thoughts on back to school shopping and their many regrettable fashion decisions over the years. But the meat and potatoes of the show comes when the dynamic duo attempt to come up with their top five television shows of all time, an incredibly daunting task for two pop culture nerds like them.
What makes their top five? Will Tony Scott always be remembered first for Top Gun? Did Joel really have a silk shirt phase? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
