Something’s fishy this week as we watch the 2006 pilot for what would have been The CW’s Aquaman! That’s right, everyone’s favorite superhero punchline, the whale whisperer himself, Aquaman, was star of his very own TV show… For one episode anyway. Also this show has A LOT to do with the Bermuda triangle. Not really sure what that's all about. ...…
 
We celebrate the return of Morgan(!) with a brand new show whose single episode cancellation has the internet buzzing and fans rioting, it’s the DC Universe original series, Swamp Thing! This is the first time we’ve done a show that’s still currently airing, but with all the controversy surrounding it’s ludicrously quick termination, we had to ...…
 
I've heard of daddy issues, but this is ridiculous! This week we watched as the lady anti-Christ turned against her old man (aka, Satan!), in 2005's super soapy, Good vs Evil drama, Point Pleasant! It may have only lasted 8 episodes but Mike is still pining over the loss of this obscure Fox failure, co-created by former Buffy showrunner Marti N ...…
 
Hold on to your joysticks (and internal organs!), this week we watched the television adaptation of the most notorious video game of the 90s, Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm! Brent from Home Video Hustle is back to fill in for Morgan, and he brings his ridiculously detailed knowledge of all things Kombat! No character is too obscure, no b ...…
 
Holy Cats! What do you get when you mix feline cyborgs, ancient Japanese warriors, and the most delicious food on the planet?? The 1990 animated import, Samurai Pizza Cats! It’s a veritable fancy feast of puns, guns, parody, and hilarity, and almost certainly the only show to feature robot cats being launched out of a gun-shaped pizzeria! Morga ...…
 
Crime is a computer virus… She’s the cure! We watched the absolutely ridiculous, ultra-90s cyber-police procedural, Mann & Machine! From the creator of Law and Order comes the classic story of a grumpy butthole police detective who hates robots but is forced to team up with a beautiful and acrobatic android who has a pre-school education and a ...…
 
Put your hockey masks on and get your chainsaws revved up, things are gonna get slasher-y this week!! We watched the 2009 single-season murder mystery, Harper’s Island! Who wouldn’t want to set their wedding in the isolated location where a violent serial killer had chopped up their friends and family only a few short years prior?! It’s show th ...…
 
Everyone (except Morgan) is crazy for the MCU! And with Avengers: Endgame coming out this week the hype has never been more substantial! So we figured the time was right to take a look at the one thing nobody likes from Marvel’s cinematic universe, the 2017 super-flop, Inhumans! It’s that one with the giant CGI bulldog and a lady with magic hai ...…
 
We can’t monkey unsee this monkey doo doo! This week Morgan forced Mike to watch an absurdly dumb show with an entirely chimpanzee cast! Apparently the bizarro 1970 spy comedy, “Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp” was actually a real thing that existed and was on TV, and it is every bit as strange as it sounds. From Breakfast Spaghetti, to pretending ...…
 
From out of this world and onto our television, we get invaded by 1982’s alien superhero drama with an identity crisis, The Powers of Matthew Star!! Or is it David Star? This is definitely the first show we’ve watched that can’t even get it’s main character’s name right. Louis Gossett Jr. shows up (with hair!) as does everyone’s favorite Friday ...…
 
Code Lavender! Get us 100cc’s of soapy medical drama stat!! We’re back with another episode of Good Reception, but this time neither of us has ever seen the show. Somehow we’ve missed the biggest TV phenomenon of the past decade and a half, the much beloved, and oft referenced Grey’s Anatomy. We jump into the middle of season two with the show’ ...…
 
We're back with another episode of the ever-popular "Elfman on the Shelf!" This time J-Elf finds herself in a more traditional sitcom, about an unconventional relationship! Sound familiar?? It's Knocked Up meets Dharma & Greg... meets an awful moldy old garbage biscuit covered in sewage juice! Josh and Tiffany join us for one of the most painfu ...…
 
We’ve got our sights set and hot pants on for on the campy 1998 Pamela Anderson action comedy V.I.P!! Prepare yourself for explosions, inappropriate hot dog stands, Breaking Bad stars, pixie cuts, erotic daydreams, hidden arsenals, movie stars, tax evasion, and more silicone than any dress can contain!! Hollywood Power Couple Josh and Tiff join ...…
 
We’ve got the need for speed, and only the furry blue spiked one can get the job done! It’s our first video game adaptation and we went for the weirdest, goofiest, most gosh dark rock-n-roll-est show we could get our hands on, 1999’s Sonic Underground! Hope you’re ready for sick guitar riffs, laser blasting drum beats and, of course, fog spewin ...…
 
Happy Podiversary!! That’s right we’re celebrating one year of putting ourselves through awful TV shows for your entertainment! We also brought back our original guest host, Josh, and are revisiting one of the very first series we covered, Ghost Whisperer!! The fans just can’t get enough of JLH’s spooky spirit sleuthing. We chose to watch the s ...…
 
It's spooky satanic shenanigans meets high-priced Manhattan real estate, in the first show ever made for horror geeks and architecture nerds! If you're looking for thrills, chills and soul damning deals, tell the cabbie to take you to 666 Park Avenue! After concluding that the show is neither Lucifer nor Ugly Betty (but not ruling out that it m ...…
 
From the depths of television obscurity, we unearth the 2003 Syfy TV spinoff of the immensely entertaining Tremors film franchise! Is this "underground" series worthy of the good Graboid™️ name, or should we have left it buried? Lot’s of talk about Wild Things and “Kevin Bacon’s Front Jimmy” in this one, and we seem to be on constant lookout fo ...…
 
It's the animated prequel to the original live-action adaptation of the classic comic series that is a spinoff of a larger universe!! Before she was a teenage witch, beloved character Sabrina was a tween-age spell-caster-in-training. And also a cartoon! Will Morgan's nostalgia for TGIF color her judgement of this single season cartoon curiosity ...…
 
We kick off our new series, Elfman on the Shelf (aka Bottom Shelfman, aka The Dharma Initiative) with the 2017 Jenna Elfman sitcom bomb, Imaginary Mary! In a career chock full of duds, could this ABC family dramedy with an adorably annoying CG co-star be a diamond in the rough? …I can only imagine! Meanwhile Morgan is full of serenades this epi ...…
 
Holy generic superheroes! It's not a bird. It's not a plane (although it certainly is PLAIN). No it's NBC's laughably lame, costumed, crime-fighting crusader, The Cape! We finally take on the most popular genre in the world, by watching a series that almost no one even remembers! However, the real hero is Keith David, because he's always awesom ...…
 
Lucy's definitely got some s'plaining to do! After three smash hit television series, the comedic legend sadly ended her illustrious career with this universally panned 80s sitcom, Life with Lucy. It's the classic story of a widow, her son-in-law's father, a hardware store, pineapple boxes, Jenny Lewis, and a bunch of bland randos living in a h ...…
 
Oh Baby! Mike and Morgan are crying for their mommies after watching this dirty diaper of a show! It's the sitcom everyone in 2002 was clamoring for, based on a dumb Quiznos commercial, and starring a freaking talking baby: Baby Bob. They also rattle on about Baby Bob Balaban, speculate that the Chicago Fire franchise is just an elaborate ruse, ...…
 
Happy New Year! We start 2019 off on a positive note with our long awaited return to Good Reception! Mike makes Morgan watch one of his favorite short-lived series, the terrific time-looper, Tru Calling! With the likes of Eliza Dushku and Zach Galifianakis, a killer premise, and epically 2003 soundtrack, how did this high-concept thriller not l ...…
 
So much action filled!! Bad Reception All-Stars Josh and Tiffany return, just in time for some mighty morphin’ ...alien fighting? We watched the 1994 Power Ranger’s knock-off (and lengthily titled) Tattooed Teenage Alien Fighters from Beverly Hills! You’re in store for lots of singing, uncontrollable giggling, sexual innuendo, dirty words, vowe ...…
 
Oopsie-doodle, everyone on Earth is dead and all you got was this stupid 90s sitcom! Josh Hollis (of the fantastic Predict-O-Cast) joins us to talk about Woops!, a high-concept FOX sitcom that deals with some VERY heavy themes with the with all the delicacy of an atomic blast. TV Guide named it one of the 50 worst TV shows ever made, but is the ...…
 
School's in session this episode, as we visit everyone's favorite institute of higher learning, Bayside High! Unfortunately Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski are nowhere to be found, instead we get Weasel, Tommy D., and a whole slew of third-rate knock-offs (AKA "The New Class"). In other news, we're super excited to announce that we are now part ...…
 
Howdy Pardners! We took a trip to the Lone Star state to visit everyone’s favorite bearded butt-kicker, Chuck Norris! Did you know that Walker, Texas Ranger had a very short-lived spinoff, inexplicably titled Sons of Thunder? Apparently neither did anyone else! This gritty, murder-filled, Southern-fried, karate/detective noir has something for ...…
 
Happy Hanksgiving!! We celebrate the thankful season with America’s most beloved actor, and patron saint of yell-talk comedy, Tom Hanks! We watched the 80s sitcom Bosom Buddies co-starring Peter Scolari, and other familiar faces we couldn’t place, but are pretty sure we know from other stuff. Morgan apparently had no idea what the show was abou ...…
 
Cowabunga, dudes! Get ready for one shell of an episode! We’re joined by Chris of the More Gooder Than podcast along with his hilarious and charming wife, Alyse! From Saban (the guys that brought you Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers), it’s the low budget, live-action TMNT show that absolutely no one was asking for! Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation ...…
 
You got those babysitting blues? Well I hope our delirious laughter and fart jokes will cheer you up because this small screen spinoff never got off the ground. However, thanks to the magic of YouTube we were able to watch the "unaired pilot" for Adventures in Babysitting (it obviously was aired, just never picked up to series). We also talk ab ...…
 
Are you ready for Freddy?? That’s right, unlike Friday the 13th, Freddy actually shows up for his TV show! There’s plenty of striped sweaters, terrible puns and razor gloves in Freddy’s Nightmares! And just in time for the holiday, it’s a Halloween episode featuring Mariska Margitay! Fellow Elm Street fan, Brent from Home Video Hustle, joins us ...…
 
It's a Halloween episode of a Friday the 13th TV show!! Obviously it's gonna be Jason vs. Michael right?!?!? Not exactly... I mean, not at all, even a little bit. But it IS going to have a crystal ball, a ghost uncle, and an old man wearing a Merlin costume! And that's just as good! Right? Along the way we debate the definition of "co-ed," and ...…
 
Hello, Boils and Goyles (like Gargoyles, get it?)!! It’s our second episode of #AllTheHorror and we are joined by Rob from Movie Geek and Proud and Trish from Invasion of the Remake to talk about one of our favorite shows, Tales from the Crypt!! We do a joint countdown of our Chop 20 episodes! Plus Morgan reveals her celebrity crush, Mike does ...…
 
The Halloween season continues as we watch the ghost of 80s teen comedy, Square Pegs! It's a special halloween episode of a show we've never seen and know almost nothing about! Sarah Jessica Parker (queen of the three-namers) and the lovely Jaimie Gertz (why don't you just marry her, Mike!?) star in this short lived, but fondly remembered show. ...…
 
Happy October!! We begin our favorite time of year with a super Halloween extravaganza! We’re doing a joint list of our Top 10 favorite Halloween TV episodes, and you’re not going to believe what takes the first spot! (Seriously, we couldn’t believe it either) What gets loved, and what gets snubbed? Find out! Also, we have spooky editions of Mo ...…
 
Holy synth, it’s Automan! Or is it Ottoman? We have no idea what we’re in for but we’re pretty sure it has something to do with cars… or furniture… possibly both (actually it’s neither). Tiffany and Josh return to podcast and eat pizza… and we’re all out of pizza (but some does get delivered to us while recording!) Join as we talk about our new ...…
 
Forget everything you know about those lame old Munsters of yesteryear, because these are the muthatruckin’ Munsters TODAY! Mike and Morgan woke up early just to get you this episode (two days late)! Join as they experiment with changing the format of the show to an NPR-style mellow conversational, Cuppa Joe. Morgan tries her hand at ASMR and s ...…
 
Get some real shark up in this S@*#!! That’s the tagline for this Jawesome 90s cartoon! Not really, but wouldn’t that be so KOOL!? Jason (Things I Hate) and Carli (Oh Shit That’s Scary) return to the podcast to talk about the nearly inexplicable Street Sharks! We also get into some of our favorite 90s garbage like Gushers, Crossfire and Squeezi ...…
 
Mike and Morgan find a higher a power... and it's Skeet Ulrich! Just kidding, they just watched a weird religious based supernatural mystery thriller TV show from 2003 called Miracles, featuring Skeet playing a hoax hunting priest. Was it one of the titular miracles that it lasted 7 episodes? Was it an act of God it was taken off the air? Or ma ...…
 
Morgan has returned! It's our 25th Epiversary, and it's the worst show we've watched yet! The Henson company brings us Aliens in the Family, a muppet/human sitcom abomination starring some of weirdest characters doing insufferably mundane things! We also spend time referencing Hey Dude!, speculate alien sex noises, argue over the color of Hayde ...…
 
Hey Kids! It's John Rambo, and he's gonna give you a war [cartoon] you won't believe! That's right, the very first R-Rated film to be turned into an animated children's show was the ultra-violent bullet frenzy that is the First Blood series. Why not? That seems perfectly appropriate for children!(?) Morgan is living it up in the Big Apple this ...…
 
Oh my SMG!! Before slaying vampires, Sarah Michelle Gellar was breaking hearts and stabbing backs in this 1992 teen soap, Swans Crossing! Mike is joined by guest co-host Josh for the second installment of “Buffy Buddies,” as Morgan continues her sabbatical (j/k she’s super busy with real work). In addition to spending over a half hour on the in ...…
 
That's right, we're discussing what the internet is buzzing about, Mission: Impossible!! We'll probably have a lot of fallout over this one, but it's actually not the new movie we're talking about. It's not the old TV show either. It's the NEW old TV show: the quasi reboot of Mission: Impossible from 1988! Did you even know this existed? We sur ...…
 
We are joined by TJ and Serenity of the hilarious Movies with the Mrs. podcast to talk about the quickly nixed 2017 TV series adaptation of Stephen King's The Mist! In preparation for Hulu’s Castle Rock series we thought we’d check out one of the prolific writer’s least loved television conversions. Is there enough material to make an entire se ...…
 
For our 20th episode we return to Good Reception(?), and this time it's Morgan's turn to make Mike watch something! Kind of. Actually Morgan has no idea what she's watching, but it's one of her childhood favorites that Mike has never seen! The Fran Drescher starring 90s sitcom classic The Nanny! A critical success and audience favorite, how has ...…
 
Alright all you cycle-heads. Motor maniacs. Two-wheeled rocket racers. This one’s for you! What do you get when you combine a motorcycle, lasers, machine-guns, Tangerine Dream synth, Frank from Murphy Brown and sack of potatoes dressed like a man? You guessed it, it’s Street Hawk! Everyone’s favorite crime fighting super-vehicle series that doe ...…
 
It’s yet another installment of “Friends before Friends!” This week we unearth the TV spinoff “Ferris Bueller," starring a pre-Rachel Jennifer Aniston. It's kind of like if everything you love about Ferris Bueller's Day Off got flushed down a toilet, lit on fire, and smashed into pieces! It's that good! We spend an absurd amount of time avoidin ...…
 
It's Bucky! Captain Bucky O'Hare!! This week we finally cover the topic everyone has been clamoring for: forgotten, short-lived, 90s cartoons inspired by the boom of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!! It's like Star Wars but with bunnies, cats, toads, and baboons! Plus robots, dimensional travel, and busty animated kitties! Plus Josh joins us to ed ...…
 
Quit Your Witchin'!! This week we're cast under the spell of the 80s family sitcom Free Spirit! It's the second most famous all-ages witch comedy to air on TGIF. Folks, we were tired, and we were drinking, and recorded it merely hours before it needed to be uploaded. It may be incoherent, and we may be insufferable, but one thing is for sure: i ...…
 
Welcome to paradise, BROTHER! Eden and Carli of the “Oh Shit That’s Scary” podcast join us to talk about the over-the-top, beyond-the-mat, no-holds-barred aquatic action series, Thunder in Paradise!
