Episode 104: Cocked & Loaded (The 2011 Oscar Prediction Episode)

Well, it’s that time of year once again…the time when your Scope hosts pick the Oscars for the best films of 2010. (But we call it the 2011 Oscar prediction segment?!?! Confusion in house, people.) While it may be confusing, we try to take the edge off a bit by including Molly, the true movie expert, in on the conversation. Unlike 2/3 of the Scope team, she actually tries to see the movies and have informed opinions.

Along with the Oscar talk, we get back to our usual shenanigans by reviewing the latest release from Fitz & The Tantrums. And by latest, we mean six months old. Yes, more timely music talk.

And finally, we thought the show just hasn’t been long enough lately. So we take a major detour into political territory, covering Wisconsin union-busting, Planned Parenthood, and the general state of the union. It gets a little heated (and there’s no mention of super hero movies or roll-playing games anywhere in the talk, so we’re sorry in advance if it moves outside of the geek/pop culture conversation you demand. Maybe next time, Scope faithful.)

The Scope episode 104 is currently digging out of yet another huge Minnesota snow storm. Winter is growing tiresome. Oh, so tiresome…

    I kept looking at their mouths and Hilary Swank looks WAY more like a horse than Anne Hathaway. And Julia Roberts’ mouth could swallow both of them whole.
