With Skelton down with holiday plague, sommelier Stephen Falk takes fellow Film Pig Todd Robert Anderson on a sophisticated journey of wines, inexplicably acclaimed movies, Golden Globes, and much more on this special presentation of The Bacon. Also, they talk about going to a strip club in the Valley like a couple of creepy dads.
Because YOU demanded it*, it’s another episode of The Bacon! As part of Todd’s desperate attempt to clock in 12 podcast episodes in 2014, he and Skelton day drink and talk about once great comedians who stopped being funny. Plus, listener-submitted movie news and a whispering bit that is used too much. Plus, some nonsense about Steven Seagal doing dinner theater.
*No one demanded this. We are lying.
Once more, like kids cramming just before a morning quiz, the Film Pigs sneak in a podcast at the end of the month! This time, it’s an episode of The Bacon, featuring friend-of-the-show and handsomey actor Gabriel Olds. We flip through Gabe’s IMDb page and get him to reminisce on jobs past, including the time he received a backhanded compliment from Arthur Miller himself! (Also, take a trip down memory lane with our alternate commentary on The Animal Room, featuring Gabe!)
March has been really busy for us, okay? We really wanted to do a regular episode but the month just got away from us. So Todd and Skelton did a Bacon episode so there was at least something for the month. Why are you looking at us like that? We did our best. Come on, you guys, let’s all be cool about this.
Like celebrity deaths, the Film Pigs like to do everything in 3’s for the holidays. So sit yourself down with your Xmas leftovers for the last Film Pigs podcast of 2013! We made a serious effort to put together a full episode for you and failed. We made less of an effort to put together a Bacon episode for you, but it’s worth it for the high-level wordplay about nuts and Todd’s palpable hatred of that rapping Christmas family.
You can say a lot of things about the Film Pigs, but you can never say we’re consistent or on time with anything. Thanks to Falk having a functioning career, Todd and Skelton are left to their own devices and deliver a Bacon episode discussing the movies they’ve actually gone to theaters to see this year. Note: this episode was recorded before the release of ENDER’S GAME, which got this review from Todd: “I had low expectations, but it was way better than I thought it would be.”
