Dalton sticks around for one more week to sit with us as we talk best and worst in terms of music videos before taking on that old CG movie you may have seen commercials for in the past, but just never got around to seeing.

There was so much disagreement on our 100th episode between Errol and Nick, that they decided to sit down one on one and hash out which side of the force they were on. Since Errol writes these, Nick was on the dark side. Tune in for an in depth review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Rob's TV pick of the month is takes the fellas down a dystopic jaunt through the mad tech world of the British television series Black Mirror. While we battle our way through a cultural apocalypse we discuss our own personal hells, Nick lament's the absence of Errol, and Dalton and Rob bond. It gets weird.
Drink of the Week:
(This Drink Was Made Up On The Spot And By No Means Do The Makers Of This Podcast Advocate The Consumption Of Such A Vile Cocktail)
2 oz Yagermeister
6 oz Guiness
1 Stick of Black Licorice
2 Cubes of Ice
1 Solid Gullet
Muddle the ingredients along with your sense of self worth. Hold your nose and pray for death.
Dalton's pick this week brings us the first western brought to you by spaghetti in the italian/american remake of Yojimbo (See our previous yojimbo review). Along the way we talk about why people like seeing the same story told and retold while experimental films go the wayside. Also a surprise kind of sort of review of Mother! by Daron Aranovsky.

Act II: Fistful of Dollars Review
Act III: 3 Shots
Drink of the week: Japanese Whisky History Lesson
We have a new substitute reviewer this week in the form of Derek Bowles from Talking to myself joining us in place of Dalton, who is currently knee deep in the film he and Errol have been working on the past few weeks. But fear not, because Nick has chosen that warm, weird, holiday film that people obsess over to kick us into the new season! Also, Black Mirror is not what's coming next week, so we apologize for our incompetence.
Act I: Favorite romance moment in film and real life
Act II: Love Actually review
Act III: 4 shots
Drink of the week: Garbage Cocktail
Who cares, just mix a bunch of drinks together at your Christmas party and hit on your work crush before you throw up. This movie sucks.
There's no fighting this week as we discuss the film Airplane! with drunken civility. Mainly because those ne'er-do-wells Nick and Dalton had to take the day off, at least that's Rob's theory. Tune in as we try and nail down what qualifies as a parody or a satire, swoon over our favorite funny folk, and giggle our way through the reviews!
Drinking and discussing religion: Don't do it. But we did! And things get heated exactly as one would expect, so if you like listening to drunk people shout over each other, go ahead and give this episode a listen! Or not, cause there's a lot of arguing.
Act I: Crazy Celebrities
Act II: Going Clear Review
Act III: 1 1/2 Shots
Drink of the week: The Purif
1 oz Agave
2 oz Gin
1/2 oz lime juice

Rob and Dalton got a little jealous of Nick and Errol making bets from under their noses, so they decided to chime in on what they think will be the outcome of the summer movies that the MoT boys have chosen to review. Sit back and fill up, cause there's gonna be quite a lot of shots to go around for these new releases.
Nick and Errol bring to you a predictive review of what they think the aggregate shot rating will be for the four summer movies that will be reviewed by the MoT guys. Tune in and make sure to keep us on our toes in this summer version of the new series Small Batch Bets!
Nick entices his already drunk cohorts with his ridiculous act I topic, all the while Dalton talks inappropriately about doing shots on female genitalia, and Rob thinks this movie isn't necessarily a good movie to watch with your sister.
Act I: Where did all the titties go? (Nick's exact words)
Act II: Basic Instinct review
Act III: 2 1/2 shots

1 oz Vodka
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth

Dash of orange bitters
Dash Agnostura bitters
pour ingredients into mixing glass with ice, stir and strain into cocktail glass. Garnis with a cherry.
Get ready for your mind to get messed with, as the guys take a deep dive into one of the most dense films out there. We also somehow get sidetracked into talking about Nick selling condoms to horny teenagers while sitting naked in his chair and Errol thinking he can beat Floyd Mayweather in seven rounds.
Act I: Density in Film

Act III: 2 Shots
Drink of the week: Mind Eraser
2oz. Coffee Liqueur

Act I: Is Racism ok in comedy?
Act II: Trading Places Review
Act III: 0 shots

Garnish with a mint sprig while you watch your silver cup frost over.
