After a brief and unintentional break in our regularly scheduled program, Remember When is back in style!
We kick off the show by commemorating the passing of one of the more notable actors from the 80's, Patrick Swayze. Sure, he's not a "classical" actor, but he was certainly a fixture in movies during the decade of punk rock and Members Only jackets. We start by talking about one of his campier and more memorable films, Red Dawn, and then move into Point Break, the latest entry in Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen.
Quentin Tarantino's latest cinema opus, Inglorious Basterds, serves as Act Two. Parris and Jay have both seen it, but is it any good? And will Jay be able to appreciate a Tarantino film for once? Listen in and find out.
Finally, we cap off the show with a look at what we're watching in the Fall TV season (and what you should be watching, too). A long-awaited wedding left us impressed, a troupe of kids in high school singing about their woes held surprises for us, and a mockumentary focusing on three different families reminds us that sitcoms aren't dead.
Spoiler alert: We both agree that The Cleveland Show is a tragedy.
