Thanks, that's good to know.

Has anyone else noticed that the RLM podcast on the Bunny Ears youtube channel is far and away the most popular upload on the channel?


106K views. Only a few others go over 1000. A bunch of other ones seem to just stay around a couple hundred.

I tried listening to a couple of others. The Tom Green one is pretty nice, they mention the RLM review of Freddy Got Fingered in passing. The Jake the Snake one is okay, but I have heard that story a few times thank to a couple of Pro-Wrestling podcasts I have listened to in the past.

The rest, aren't all that interesting to be honest.

The RLM one is great because they really bounce off each other and just goading Rich to tell stories of his time cleaning up his Grand mother's house were interesting and just shooting the shit on ghosts was a good conversation.
Wow, good eye. YouTube just suggested his Podcast with guest Seth Green: 1.6k. RedLetterMedia is currently at 126k views. Crazy difference.

I just caught this on twitter and I can't think of a better place to post this here, so considering Jay is Jay:




(Laura's Theme from Twin Peaks literally has twin peaks in it and I never realized this)

Fourth-Quarter this year. Appears to follow a young Sam Wing, the shop keeper from Gremlins 1&2.

They say it is "Adult-Focused" I am not sure if they is the way to go. It can be dark, but still appeal to kids too. I hope the Gremlins they design can live up to the movies because that was a big part of the fun.

No mention of Joe Dante either. I cannot say I am getting any good vibes from this announcement.

The opener might be one of the greatest things they've ever done.

I legit love black spine edition.

Black spine is great because it's the next thing after best of the worst of just adding a lot more random chance. Since Plinketto they get to choose which films to put at the very least, vs random tapes with zero context

Junka is Mike's most sadistic idea yet.

How long will they hold the threat of Nukie over everyone's head?

Okay, so far this seems like the best use for black spine tapes.
They can speed through tapes that only have like 1 or 2 good moments, and it makes for a fun intro.

Jay-"What are we doing?"

Mike-"I don't know. Each day gets more and more embarrassing."

Boy if that isn't a mood.

They already do filter out garbage from these VHS tape BOTWs (including Wheel of the Worst - which is why a running joke is how it's all rigged anyway). I think Jay said in the Bunny Ears podcast or Patreon reply that he looks through a lot of footage to cobble together a BOTW episode, and it does take a good amount of time to put one together.

Yes but they didn't for the first black spine (I don't remember the second one off hand) it was just three random tapes and it wasn't that great.

The second was the first BotW with Tim and it was extremely forgettable.

And hell, in the first one they even gave up and used it as a springboard to finally watch Partners on video.

They really haven't figured out the format and I haven't watched the new one yet but I guess the gag now is just they just keep switching it up and never nail down on a single kind of gimmick.

I would guess the next special BotW is with Len. He hasn't been on since May 2017. He could use this visit to promote Challenge of the Five Gauntlets, just like he used his last visit to promote Angel of Reckoning.

I feel the switch to partners was a joke, the episode really didn’t need it as the first two tapes were hilarious.

They are dead on with Star Trek.
Disagree, their Discovery season 2 review was awful and lazy. They are capable of doing really good reviews, explaining why things didn't work, this was just fanboys whining that it's different then the stuff they enjoyed as teenagers. They criticized some things but they weren't well researched and articulated.

Then there's Rich declaring that the Picard show will suck because Kurtzman is involved and it will be dumb pew pew action anyway which makes me dismiss everything he has to say in this review because he obviously didn't approach this open minded, he wanted to dislike it and did, he drags down the entire review.
