This week the show concludes its “Favorite 80′s Action Films” talk as Shawn is once again joined by Matinee Idles/Burden’s World host Matt Burdenand the man of many podcasts, Donny Salvo!
Sit back and enjoy the chaos, car crashes, destruction, Rambo teaching children, Sean Connery imitations, tangents galore, and Matt trying to convince Shawn & Donny why “Turner & Hooch” is on his list of favorite 80′s action flicks.
What starts out as two becomes three to discuss five that is really ten. (Kevin’s head just exploded a little bit) Okay have you wrapped your head around that? Can you tell i have been reading some really obscure Grant Morrison this week? Well I have. The first half hour Shaft and Righty go on about the superbowl, our weeks, and how our kids suck our will to be adults anymore. (Well not so much but it sounds cool, right? RIGHT?!?!) We talk some iPad goodness (guess which one of us loves it?) Comic talk to slightly plentiful: Robocop #1 and Black Terror #7 from Dynamite, X-Men: The End from Marvel, and Phantom Stranger #42 and the Question #37 from DC. Our top five is top Five Kirby creative teams, Wait? What’s that, Kev? oh it wasn’t that? Okay it really is Top Five Comic Book Creative Teams. Listen and ENJOY! That is an ORDER! (really just a nice request but i try to make myself more authoritative.)

Episode 8 – Trailer Trash Talk
In this classic and much more free-form show, The Freaks discuss the teasers and trailers for such then-upcoming films as Frank Miller’s “The Spirit”, “TR2N” (now retitled “TRON: Legacy”), “Terminator: Salvation” and the remake of “The Day The Earth Stood Still” among others.
Chris throws one of his best on-air fits ever all about garage sale etiquette and Scott invents the phrase “hobby raping”. Add some Firesign Theatre, the Justice League roll call, and a trip to the Freak Museum and you it’s easy to see why this is one of the Freaks’ most beloved episodes.
The song featured in the Freak Museum segment is “Our Song” by Roger Waters from the soundtrack to the movie “The Body”.
