An introduction to the show and the film tastes of Jim & Jon, along with a brief summary of the origins of their friendship. There’s confusion over the meaning of bi-monthly and just how many film series encapsulate both the best and worst of film making. Their love of Aliens is declared upfront. Bill Paxton and Lo Pan are discussed as necessary in every film. Key characters get punched in the face in the new Batman film, so a unique rehabilitation program is conceived. Credibility goes out the window. Tim Burton gets a flow chart. John Cusack goes in the rain, and a CGI Tom Hanks takes a piss. Homework is given to the listeners before the hosts get ahead of themselves.
