Episode 78: Adam And His Amazing Bladder

Much to the disappointment of nearly everyone in the podcasting community, this episode marks the return of The Scope after our one month summer hiatus. We may sound a little rusty this time around…but who are we kidding? We usually sound a little rusty.

Speaking of Rusty, we give tribute to 80s movie maker John Hughes (Rusty was the name of the son in Hughes’ National Lampoon’s Vacation; look it up, slackers) and Adam is too lazy to come into the studio but more than willing to monopolize the first part of the show talking about his latest travel disaster. Yes, it was even in the news.

Speaking of disasters (see how we’re doing it?) we review the G.I.Joe movie as well as spend a little time with new Scope show-regular Mike talking about the history and trivia of the Joe Universe.

Speaking of the Joe Universe, we also give a nearly-instant review of District 9 (Hmm. That transition didn’t work nearly so well.)

That’s a lot of content for one Scope show. Show your appreciation by listening with glee, sending comments and voicemails, and reviewing us in iTunes. Oh, hell, become a fan of us in Facebook while you are at it.

    Well if a great show is a home run, I would say you guys hit a solid ground rule double. Not a great show but it got the job done. I guess after the time off I was hoping for more. Enjoyed the GI JOE talk but the Adam story was just a little too rambly for me.

    Looking forward to the next show and a little trivia. Would also like to hear your thoughts on the Vikes and Favre. Keep up the average to above average work.

    Well, I’m almost caught up. Enjoyed the movie reviews. Made me really want to see District 9. Even more than I do already. Who knows… maybe on blu-ray.
