Episode 88: NETFLIX & ILL! The Shutdown Gen X Was Made For with Dan Bush of The Dark Red

Guests: Writer director Dan Bush!

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, the world ends so let’s talk about all the good things we can do when you are living in a bunker and all you’ve got is your favorite streaming service to save you from uncertain doom! 

We start the episode off by talking about three cult classic movies to revisit or finally catch up on. Then things get dark… Has someone ever asked you if you’ve seen a famous movie and just to avoid an awkward conversation you lie and say yes? Why are we even asking, of course you have you lying weasel. Everyone has. But this lockdown finally gives you a chance to right the wrongs! Finally turn that shameful lie into a half truth and watch that movie that you reference all the time anyway, f*ckin poser. We also talk all things movies with writer/director Dan Bush (The Signal, The Vault), including his own “stay home and watch” movie, The Dark Redavailable NOW on your couch via Prime Video

So don’t go to bars or theaters, just poor yourself a stiff one and listen to three dudes deal with a pandemic in the only way they can. Join Grim Shea, Marke and Johnny Heck as they drink rum & Cokes and offer up some watchlist suggestions, plus they come clean about their own lies!
