Film Pig Stephen J. Skelton joins host David T. Cole on Previously.TV‘s That’s What We’re Tarkin About podcast. And what we’re Tarkin about is the Star Wars Holiday Special! Mercifully, only the 10 minute segment where Carrie Fisher is irritated by anything she has to acknowledge and Art Carney uses the Force of his old-timey comedy skills to confuse disinterested Imperial soldiers. And there’s an old rock band singing into a glowing wang or something. Lots to unpack here. Happy Life Day, motherfuckers!
You didn’t ask for it and you got it: an episode of The Bacon! With fellow Film Pig Stephen Falk off at his real job making critically acclaimed, high quality television, Todd and Skelton are left on their own, drinking afternoon Scotch and yelling into a microphone. This time, they’re talking about the movies of Stephen King – the good, the bad, and the REALLY bad.
Nothing says springtime like a Film Pigs podcast! This episode, the Pigs are talking Movie Viewing Tier Systems, or how do you decide what to see in theaters and what to watch at home? Plus, the latest and greatest movie news, an in-depth prosecution for movie jail, a bizarre line reading so short you’ll miss it if you pause to open your beer, and a challenging game that irritates everyone but Todd for once. (And there’s no problem with the recording, Falk’s just typing on his keyboard – he likes to write Grey’s Anatomy fan fiction when we record the show.)
April showers bring May flowers, and also cause sea levels to rise which is why this podcast we’re talking sea monsters! This episode also marks the return of a beloved segment that’s been missing-in-action for a while. Plus, your usual carefully-sourced movie news, courtroom drama, bizarre line readings, and a game that tries to take it easy for once by not making the players improvise but Todd finds a way to complain about it anyway so he ruins it which has also caused this run-on sentence so that’s Todd’s fault, too.
The Film Pigs are back, well before the end of March, with a brand-new episode! This time we’re talking Cinematic Universe Writers Rooms and what that means for the endless amount of comic book/screeching robot/paramilitary toy/classic monster movies that are in our future. Plus, the latest movie news, a surprising twist in the courtroom, a reluctant game that TOTALLY SCREWS OVER ONE OF THE PLAYERS, and more!
