It’s definitely Episode 8. A strong proclamation is made about the Die Hard film series and any rebuttals are quickly stamped out. Swearing is big and clever. McClane gets caught short. The Die Hard code is cracked. The riddle of the Chinese terrorist is puzzled over. Jon gets too big for his boots. The impact of Die Hard on cinema is commended. Villains are given their due. Harry Potter & the Terrorists Detonators is the film that should have been made. Alan Rickman looks German. Hans Gruber suffers from the language barrier. Favourite lines are decided and Dalmatians are explained to Jim. It’s decided that if McClane isn’t available for an emergency Jim & Jon will settle for a non-racist Mel Gibson. The problems of having metal shit in your brain are pondered because Skynet goes from killing people to simply humiliating them. Kevin Smith gets kicked to the curb regarding spoilers. Other ways to deal with a new recruit are considered. Rickman trounces Irons in German accents and playing a bad guy. Samuel L Jackson is a racist (well, his character is). Certain words can’t be said by Jim, but Jon has no problem with them, for better or worse, calling his character into question… Die Hard 4 is welcomed to the series with open arms with it’s old school values. Maggie Q dies hard and Timothy is Olyphantastic, just not in Die Hard 4. Die Hard 5 is anticipated, with Patrick Stewart playing a Russian of some description. Jon gets sidetracked by Team America. Jim wants to reunite the cast of Die Hard, without realising some of them are no longer with us. Getting hold of the latest STACKpod episodes gets easier.
