Listening to the show now:

A good moment, self-validation wise: thinking I qualified as the rare, elusive listener Tom was hoping for who got what he meant about Ben Kharack trying to update Gulcher.

A bad moment: thinking that actually marked me as kind of old and nerdy.

I really hope Allison accepts Peter's invitation to the Prom.  That was one of the sweetest moments I've heard on the radio.

I liked the bit about Guy Ritchie being the British Kevin Smith. So true! Make one decent film first and then repeat with increasingly crappier results from  then on.

And his worst crime is launching the "film career" of Jason Statham, rather than Vinny Jones.

Vinny has a certain old school charm for UK soccer fans as he was pretty much the last guy of a generation of soccer that was more brutal than it is now. He really did hurt people. And he had a genuine presence in Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (outside of any acting skill or lack thereof.) Statham, however, just plain sucks.

Also: the string of great calls in a row. Jason is swiftly becoming my favourite.

And finally - I gotta side with Spike. David Spade is the worst. How has he maintained a career so long?

I watched that dumb sitcom with Spade for five minutes. It's not funny. I don't understand why it's still on the air.

"John Worstly Slipp"? Really, Pets. He (John Wesley Shipp) is more talented and funnier than that David Spayed and Neutered.

Okay, photoshoppers. Spike just lobbed you an underhanded pitch - there's the photo ... have at it!

He was funny on Dawson's Creek when his wife was cheating on him.

Awesome show- I had to crash at about 11 since I was exhausted and only just got through the rest-
 
Spike's call alone had some crazy ass things in it:
The idea of Spike typing "boobs" on a calculator
Who says "teenybopper", besides Spike, on this entire planet?
Who says "lovey", besides Spike and Thurston Howell III, on this entire planet?
"Thanks for playing along. Heave Ho."
 
A few other things I liked:
Said this on the chat already but I'm amazed James from SE PA didn't get in on the protege rope a dope.
PBR as Rollins - "self-defecating" is a new low in malapropery.
For 2 days, Mike's been eating the birthday cake he found on the bus stop bench
I laugh every time I think about that Cadbury bunny sound effect.
I still can't believe there's a Hustler Club at all, never mind someone thinking it's a viable option for a corporate event.
Sarah from Brooklyn = awesome call.
The Alabammy Comet closing out the 3 Stooges discussion with advice on when to release the bear.
 
The PFT call also had some crazy ass things in it:
"I'm not fishing but I like what I caught" - something a Southern lady would say. Me, I hear it coming out of Elizabeth Ashley's mouth.
PFT's realization that his 300 shows have turned him into a windbag and he has no usable material for radio
"Who asks a robot to a wedding?"
The big reveal that Bob Zmuda is Tony Clifton.

Also Tom has been a total gigglepants the last few weeks, hasn't he?

This made me laugh more than any caller has in all my time listening to The Best Show (no offense to any of the other great callers who regularly phone in. This past Tuesday proved there's plenty of youse out there.)

I'm pretty sure entering the race would violate at least one of Asimov's Laws of Robotics.

Worst moment was Spike calling Magic from last week a liar. Come on, Spike, how long have you been listening to the show? I fear this signals the end of his brief run of shockingly high quality calls and predict he'll be back on the clock, if not outright hung up on, soon.
This may be the year I will disappear.

That first guy who called sounded said "radio show" in a really weird way.  Repeatedly.

His calls have been entertaining, but have they really been of high quality? If they have been I think it's more due to Tom being more willing to play along with Spike's schtick than anything else.

Anyhow, if someone who's never listened before wanted to give the Best Show a shot this week's episode is the one I would reccomend. A little bit of everything with a surprising amount of sweetness with the whole prom thing.

Re: Marx Brothers movies- I watched NIGHT AT THE OPERA after hearing for years how great they were and the good parts were very good, but there were also 10 minute interludes where not-Zeppo would sing opera. Or Harpo would play the harp for another 5 minutes. Then there was the Laurel & Hardy movie which was interupted by some dude singing "Honolulu Baby" which felt like  it lasted for about half an hour. Say what you will about the Stooges, but they aimed low and hit their mark.
