Episode 142: Kids Always Think Farts Are Funny (“Hearts in Atlantis”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 142: Kids Always Think Farts Are Funny (“Hearts in Atlantis”)

Hey, everyone! It’s Amity’s Patreon anniversary–you may recall that last year she selected “The Lost Room” for us to watch, and that one was an excellent recommendation, so we were pretty stoked to dive into this year’s rec, the movie version of Stephen King’s “Hearts in Atlantis”, starring Anthony Hopkins. We’ve established before that movies are a good adaptation form for King’s novellas, and this one is no exception–a movie was exactly the right length to allow for a faithful adaptation.

Episode 134: Take Me Down to Spatula City! (“UHF”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 134: Take Me Down to Spatula City! (“UHF”)

Hey, everyone! Things get weird this week–Weird Al, this is! (That…was terrible and I apologize, I have taken cold meds and they are addling my brain.) Mike from Back to the Futurama brings you this week’s episode courtesy of Patreon. We spend a good deal of time discussing actors who are not actually in this movie, and in a lot of ways it isn’t a product of its time, but overall, it was a cute story and Weird Al surprised us with his ability to Leading Man!

Episode 92: The Best Stephen King Story Stephen King Never Wrote (“The Lost Room”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 92: The Best Stephen King Story Stephen King Never Wrote (“The Lost Room”)

Hey, everyone! Friend of the show Amity (hi, Amity!) from The Latecomers podcast and Podcasts Collected Presents upped her Patreon donation to the tier that lets her suggest something annually for us to watch and cover on the show. So we watched the 2007 SyFy Channel miniseries “The Lost Room” (Amazon affiliate link), and not to spoil anything, but it’s SUPER GOOD. Which isn’t surprising, Amity wouldn’t suggest something she thought we’d hate (probably) but we were both pleasantly surprised by just how much we enjoyed it.

Apologies for the handful of coughs that I couldn’t edit out; the weather in Virginia has been absurd this week and it’s messing with basically everyone. But we make it up to you by giving you a recipe for some really good chicken (we both made it the night after we recorded this and can confirm, it’s very good).
