01x03 : Shudder-Worthy Robot Woman

What do Tony Starch, prehistoric piranhas, and a wizard with six boobs have in common? They're all mentioned in The Square Peg Show, Episode 3, with Dave, Jesse, D., and Mike. Join us for the conclusion of the big summer 2010 movie preview as we discuss films coming out in August. Also, at 23:00, we begin another big feature: discussing the top movies at the box office from the 1980s, onwards. Part One has 1980 to 1985, with a little bit on the latter half of the decade.

If you want to follow along with the charts being discussed, here's the first one at Box Office Mojo (we only looked at the Top 20 for each year). Also, if you want to download this episode and listen to it on your mobile device, don't forget about the +iTunes link on the left side of this website. We hope you enjoy the show!

  1. Hey Guys!

    You mention a sketch from the twilight zone movie, about a boy who could make anything happen with his mind. The original episode was called "It's a good life", and the boy was played by Bill Mummy who also starred in the original Lost In Space TV show. They paid homage to this story in one of the Simpsons Tree Houses of horror. Bart was the boy...of course, and at some point he turns Homer into a jack-in-the-box, which is also a nod from the original episode. I figured Mike would've remembered that Simpsons sketch since he's such a big Simpson's fan.

    Anway...good episode. Keep up the good work.

  2. Now that I know the original story, I can say they've paid homage to it a few other places, like an episode of Supernatural that had a demon child that could control reality. Thanks for reminding me of the Simpsons episode and for listening to the show. Glad you liked it.

  3. Good show guys! I love when Dave start bursting into fits of laughter when Mike starts describing Piranha 3-D. In reference to Jesse talking about a fan of the source material of the last airbender. I talked to my boss lady, and she said it was a horrible movie. She is a huge fan of the source material. I hear a lot of fans getting pissed at this movie.

  4. Thanks, Matt!

    Wow, The Last Airbender is currently at 9% on Rotten Tomatoes: "Despite flashy special effects, The Last Airbender squanders the potential of its popular source material on an incomprehensible plot, laughable dialogue, and a joyless sense of detachment."

  5. I liked the show...Thanks....D, BTW, I do have BLUE THUNDER and yes, you were correct...the pilot got a chance to test the new BLUE THUNDER platform and overheard a scandal and then they were after him and his co-pilot...I loved it... and of course the Helicopter was the star...
