Lao Tzu said "A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving." THEY'VE ARRIVED. That's right, Matt and Bob, two lost men in their 30s, have reached the end. 7 months and 14 movies later they have consumed, reviewed and dissected an empire built on a basketball dog! What does it feel like to create over 16 hours of review material on the life's work of filmmaker, producer, visionary, dog-murderer Robert Vince? Well...LONG. Matt and Bob sit down with Baltimore comedian and co-host of Saudi Arabia's favorite podcast LAUGHFINDER, Tommy Sinbazo, to watch the final word, the farewell of the AIR BUD CINEMATIC UNIVERSE if you will: SUPER BUDDIES! aka AIR BUD 14. Is John Ratzenberger playing a clinically insane elderly farmer? If Disney owns this franchise does that mean we could see the SUPER BUDDIES in a MARVEL movie? Do pigs have souls?

BONUS DISC 059 | AIR BUD: SPIKES BACK

March 8, 2017

Lao Tzu said: "The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness." Matt, Bob and returning guest, Baltimore comedian Bryan Preston, are most certainly being introduced to higher dimensions of consciousness when they watch AIR BUD: SPIKES BACK, a movie that involves the JEWEL OF ETERNITY. What is that? Who cares, nothing matters. All the answers can be found on the WIKIPEDIA page for the movie, which contains the following plot synopsis: 

In Disney's fifth installment to the franchise, Air Bud finds that he also has the uncanny ability to play volleyball. Throughout this experience he and a talking parrot stop some crooks and make some new friends who pledge allegiance to the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq and promptly leave for Syria. Air Bud is radicalized, but when he starts starving in the Syrian desert, he is forced to eat his parrot friend. Air Bud, after wandering around for hours, is killed in a drone strike taken out by the US Army.

Listen to the episode to find out how accurate that is!
