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? All the answers and more just one click away. Time to say goodbye to AIR BUD, the one true SKYFATHER.

Lao Tzu said "DON'T WATCH AIR BUD MOVIES." Well Bob and Matt are halfway there, up is down, left is down, right is down...it's all down. Who Cares. Listen to returning guest, comedian Bryan Preston, ride the sled as Bob and Matt pull him through SNOW BUDDES! That's right, AIR BUD 7, THE MOVIE THAT KILLED 5 PUPPIES. Was it worth it? Does the plot involve carpet bombing Alaska with ice cream? Does an entire town watch a bunch of dogs slowly drown for entertainment? The answers are NO, YES, YES...but please still listen for all the rest of the frosty excitement featuring the voice talents of Jim Belushi, Whoopi Goldberg, Kris Kristofferson, Molly Shannon and the return of Tom Everett Scott as Air God himself. Sorry, Bud.

Lao Tzu said "Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment." Matt, Bob and this week's returning guest, comedian Kathy Carson, do their best to respond to AIR BUD 6 aka AIR BUDDIES! Join these three as they watch the last film role of the legendary Don Knotts and the first of many adventures with B-Dawg, Rosebud, Budderball, Buddah and Mudbud. Hear the muted joy of experiencing TALKING animals for the first time in the AIR BUD CINEMATIC UNIVERSE! Learn about a voice cast assembled, most likely through blackmail, consisting of Molly Shannon, Abigail Breslin, Tom Everett Scott, Wallace Shawn and Michael Clarke Duncan! Can an evil rare-animal collector/whine vineyard proprietor from Latka's home country dognap Air Bud's children? Will Bud verbally explain why he hasn't spoken english for 5 entire movies up until now? Will Fernfield's systemic racism explain why the Framm's black neighbors have no say in the puppy adoption process despite being the legal owners of Molly, their mother? All the answers, and absolutely no pudding or napkins, are just a click away!

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!
