Justin is camped out near a local Mac-Donald's waiting for some free double cheese this week, so tonight I am joined by good friend and brother to the show, Paul from the Countdown Movie and TV reviews, who has graciously agreed to step in as co-host for tonight's podcast.
This week's show is all about four wonderful action comedies from an era when Mel Gibson was a #1 commodity in Hollywood and Joe Pesci hadn't retired- we're talking about all things Lethal Weapon! We'll talk about our favorite moments from the four films and talk ever-so-briefly about the coming TV series, which is as good an excuse as any for another edition of Nick's Rants.
I want to thank Paul for stepping up and filling in for Justin while he takes a week off from the show; initially he was going to guest on the show with both of us, but after Justin decided to take a short break Paul was more than willing to fill in. I am eager to hear from Justin next week as we prepare to launch the Epic Film Guys B-Sides, a minisode series wherein Justin and a random co-host will look at glorious B-movies of all kinds with a review and retrospective.
Thanks so much for listening, and we'll see you at the movies!
