Episode 131: THanksgiving 2, Week 5: Fakle Till You Makle (“Catch Me If You Can”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 131: THanksgiving 2, Week 5: Fakle Till You Makle (“Catch Me If You Can”)

Hey, everyone! It’s the final week of THanksgiving 2: Electric Hanksaloo, and we are bookending the month with the two longest, most serious, and at least one of us (the one writing this) (guess who it is!) would argue best movies of the five. We watched “Catch Me If You Can”, a movie all about a dude who faked his way through life so well that he managed to pass the bar exam and get hired as a doctor.

We also spend a good portion of this episode discussing Grey’s Anatomy (with spoilers up through Patrick Dempsey’s leaving), and what all being a librarian entails and whether we could fake our way through it. (We probably couldn’t.)

Episode 130: THanksgiving 2, Week 4: Pity Slickers (“The Money Pit”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 130: THanksgiving 2, Week 4: Pity Slickers (“The Money Pit”)

Hey, everyone! This week we rounded out our 80s Hanks Spectacular with “The Money Pit”, which is a really enjoyable if extremely simple movie about a couple and the super terrible house they bought.

It’s another short one, because frankly, this movie can be summed up in two sentences. Probably even one sentence. “Tom Hanks buys a super terrible house.” But it has some classic THanks bits and is overall just a really fun little comedic farce.

Episode 129: THanksgiving 2, Week 3: It’s a Tom Rom Com! (“Dragnet”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 129: THanksgiving 2, Week 3: It’s a Tom Rom Com! (“Dragnet”)

Hey, everyone!

Police detective Joe Friday was a stickler for the rules, a real square. Detective Pep Streebeck, was a rogue in a wrinkled shirt who drove too fast. Neither Joe nor Pep could see a world where they could possibly work together; but work together they must, for Pep was Joe’s new partner, and they had a case to solve…a case involving a crooked reverend, a goat-leggings-wearing cult, and the Virgin Connie Swale.

When things go south and Joe is unfairly relieved of his badge, it’s up to Pep to take what he’s learned from the straight-laced man he’s grown so fond of and solve the case — for both of them.

Can these two detectives get their happily ever after? Or will they be eaten by a giant snake?

Academy Award Nominee Dan Aykroyd and Academy Award Winner Tom Hanks star in this buddy-cop comedy that is basically a romcom, and we’re here to explain that statement.

Episode 128: THanksgiving 2, Week 2: It’s Just Fine. (“The ‘Burbs”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 128: THanksgiving 2, Week 2: It’s Just Fine. (“The ‘Burbs”)

Hey, everyone! It’s Week 2 of THanksgiving 2: Electric Hanksaloo, and this week’s movie, “The ‘Burbs”, was…fine. It’s just fine. It’s weird, and Corey Feldman is in it, and so is Carrie Fisher, and we suspect there is a reason you never hear about why either of them was in this movie and that reason is that this movie was weird and sort of…well, it was fine. It’s no “Big”, but it’s better than “Gettysburg”, so that’s something, right?

Episode 127: THanksgiving 2, Week 1: Hi Again, Caitlin! (“The Green Mile”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 127: THanksgiving 2, Week 1: Hi Again, Caitlin! (“The Green Mile”)

Hey, everyone! Who here likes a nice clean segue? I hope you all do, because boy do we have one for you. We transition this week from All Hallows’ Steve into THanksgiving 2: Electric Hanksaloo (the jury is still out on which of us came up with that, but we both agree it is a bad name and we don’t know why we’re still using it), and we are joined once again by friend of the podcast and former guest Caitlin Kunkel to talk about The Green Mile, that unique piece of media that straddles the fence between Stephen King’s yard and Tom Hanks’s yard so beautifully.

Episode 79: Hi, Lucy! (Again!) (“Bosom Buddies”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 79: Hi, Lucy! (Again!) (“Bosom Buddies”)

Hey, everyone! This week we are in cahoots once again with the marvelous Lucy from the currently-comatose Midpoint Podcast. We have blatantly stolen the premise of her show and watched the middle episode of the THanks show “Bosom Buddies”, and it was not quite what we expected. Join us for a rousing discussion of guacamole wigs, sexy juggling, and a whole lot of really charming THanks moments.

Episode 78: Tom Rom Coms (“Joe vs. the Volcano”, “Sleepless in Seattle”, “You’ve Got Mail”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 78: Tom Rom Coms (“Joe vs. the Volcano”, “Sleepless in Seattle”, “You’ve Got Mail”)

Hey, everyone! This week we delve into the THanks/MRyan (that’s not a thing, Erin) trilogy of rom coms. Discussion points include: if one of you has been unconscious during the extent of your time spent with a person, probably you aren’t in love with that person; since the 90s, stalking has gotten a lot easier and impromptu air travel has gotten a lot harder; and we know quite literally nothing about the origin story of “You’ve Got Mail”, and yes, we did Google it later and discover just how wrong we were.

Podcast promo swap time! Remember Tim and Leon over at Yeah, G’Day? They’re funny, they’re Australian, and they’re a damn delight. If you aren’t listening to them, you should be.

Episode 28: Rac Efron (THanksgiving)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 28: Rac Efron (THanksgiving)

Hey, everyone! It only seems right to post our THanksgiving episode a day early, ON THanksgiving, so you can listen to us while you drive over to your in-laws’ house for turkey. You’re hungry for this one, we know it. And if you weren’t hungry when you started, you will be by the end, because we just sit and talk about food for the better part of an hour.

Also discussed: Stuff we watch on TV at THanksgiving, Zac Efron’s little brother’s acting career, and the death of Vine and it’s impact on horses. Erin has a laughing fit.

We are THankful to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was a Ladder Down Here?”
