Adam opens the show and welcomes Matt Atchity back to the show, BB is giving his thumbnail review of ‘The Hateful Eight’ and Matt gives his take as well.

Adam is defending Quentin Tarantino and explains why you can’t hit pause on his movies and come back to them, you must see them in theaters without interruption.

Adam says Sonny is the worst at cleaning things up, he just kinda mats things.

Adam says he likes how the dog torments the shit out of Sonny, Adam is changing topics.


Adam is bringing up the local News and the reports on the LAPD officers driving through the L.A. river telling people who live there to relocate above ground.

Adam is mocking the apocalypse logic of this kind of reporting and how absurd it is, especially being reported without any commentary on why people are living there to begin with.

BB is weighing in and Adam references ‘The Revenant’ and confirms to Matt he’s seen it, BB too.


Adam says BB is right when he agrees with Adam, it’s the part where they just blow by people living in the river, like its normal, the status quo.

Matt is chiming in nicely and Adam is sharing how most fun activities are now illegal at the Beach, he says we’re getting screwed coming and going, paying all the taxes and having no fun.

Adam wants to know if society is in a free fall or not, can people live in the river and can he smoke on the beach or not, which is it.


Adam is telling them about watching ‘Duece Bigalow European Gigolo’ again and brings up fans telling him about random airings of ‘The Hammer’ and this leads to him getting into ‘Collison Course’.

Adam quotes Pat Morita calling a black guy “a little monkey” and BB references ’48 Hours’ and Adam says he called up Leno, a Basic Cable Commentary Track!?

They guess the audience score on ‘Collison Course.’ Matt is adamant they don’t have an actual score for this film.


Q and Ace

Rob is telling them about seeing them live in Chicago a few months back, he wants to know what the hobo guy said to them on stage mid-show, Adam says doesn’t know and BB has a killer “key to the city” one liner.

Adam says it’s like when a woman tells you her cat thinks she’s a person is akin to how he reacts to guys who charge the stage, Gary is now reading some info from ‘Rotten Tomatoes’ and brings up the misspelling along with reading the insult aimed at Adam.


Adam says you are hurting your own cause, touching the celebrity element to crediting people with the service, he’s unsure of the way the users submit these entries, they are moderated and vetted.

Gina is wise and explains things might not stay up like Wikipedia, BB predicts the dick who wrote it hoped Adam would stumble across it.

Adam mocks the notion of mandatory church or a new world order, the internet has ruined all of this stuff and there is no going back.

Adam talks about the anecdotal examples people have, but there is no measurable scale for any actual effect from this kind of fear mongering of things that never happen and never will.


Adam is talking about walking with his family on the roof, they even brought the dog up there and his son walked over to the Chimney and asked about Santa and he explains why he likes Christmas despite not being religious or even believing in a god, just go with it.
