Original Broadcast Date: June 19, 2021

Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This week join Dan “Grim” Shea, Marke, and Jimmy the Gent for a little retrospective on our memories regarding Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, released 40 years ago this month. 40. Years. Ago.

George Lucas. Steven Spielberg. John Williams. Harrison Ford. Good lord. We wax nostalagic for one of the best properties from the 80’s that was based on serials from the 40’s which is planning a new release in the ’20s. If that makes sense. We ask the heavy questions, such as: what’s our favorite parts? Where did we first see this masterpeice? Was this really the inspiration for 2006’s Snakes on a Plane? Is it okay to keep making more movies, or does this property belong in a museum? Plus we finally confirm that Indy’s presence actually does matter in the movie, so now that issue is finally settled once and for goddamned all, ya heard nerd?!
