Title: Meet My Friends The Friends
Post by: mackro on January 08, 2018, 11:06:11 AM
Itís just the pilot, but Iím already sensing this is going to be an anti-podcast ó which means Iím really excited about this. I could be completely off my rocker here.

I like the new sponsor envelopes.net, "stuff it then lick it." I am interested in signing up for their service and having them mail me some envelopes, that will really make things easier.

I can't wait for the podcast about the final episode of Friends, the one where Rachel gets executed in the electric chair!

"jam it in and lick it" unfortunately is the unfortunate tagline

The sponsors have been the best part so far. Looking forward to season 3 of Standupe on HBO.

Hopefully they will add some kind of listener mail segment or maybe record some callers or something where Tom can interact with listeners, that could be fun. Or maybe have a guest to talk about the episode with.

FlopCrate! Good thing this site is mysteriously blocked where I live, or I would be spending a fortune.

very curious if this will "implode" before they do every episode

I'm loving it, especially the parody ads. Black Apron? Sign me up! Also I feel like the plot summaries could veer from reality at some point, having not watched the show Tom could describe fantastical plots for all I know (fun).

I am enjoying this greatly. Tom-as-a-character is always one of my favorite parts of the S&W bits. Wacky Packages and whatnot.

When Tom reaches the end of Friends episodes, I hope he goes on to do another recap podcast, maybe one that recaps many different comedy series, like Stand Dupe with the Duplass brothers, the ALF reboot with Stephen Tobolowsky as the dad, and the upcoming Netflix "Eight is Enough" reunion series called "Eighteen is More Than Enough," where due to economic hard times, all the grown-up Bradford kids and their own children move back home with Dick Van Patten and Betty Buckley.

These shows and similar ones would be great to recap on a podcast.

The most recent ad for Little Stevens Scarf Club was the best yet.

I will bank like four or five episodes of these and then just spend an evening laughing my bís off. Itís the perfect companion to the main show.

This has been amazing, by the way.

Thought: a recap show of the recap show.  "Talking My Friends the Friends."

I've been out of work for 3 months and haven't listened to any of these or a best show since I lost my job. Finally got a new job and am catching up in the cubicle!

I'm loving these! I actually tried to watch Friends when they came on netflix and made it through one and a half shows (never watched in the 90s), these are so much better.

Love the engineer drama and the ads especially!

The bumpers and bumper drama have been killing me this whole series. When Pat finally dropped his "rank the friends" bumper I had a serious laughing fit that wouldn't stop. His excitement is just too funny.

Update: thanks to this podcast, I've binge-watched Friends up to the middle of season 3 so far. Not my proudest moment

This is good stuff.

It's easy to think of Dudio as the villain of this piece until you remember that they're all the villain.

And super-villain Don Strong.

This show started funny and then just got funnier. I nearly doubled over the other night doing laundry when Jason kept impersonating Pat. I also lost it when Dudio kept going "you know who else did such and such?" And Tom would just yell "DON STRONG DOOOOON STRONG DON STROOOONG!"

Just truly hilarious stuff all around.
