Final Reckoning: Unhappy Days

We finally get a full rotation of drama, eliminations, nominations, and a challenge. It’s a little out of order but that’s ok. We try to solve the world’s problems and equality between Hunter and Ashley, and hey, it’s never ok to try to take out people’s families if you’re feeling wronged. The Challengers prove themselves to be idiots in this week’s challenge, but we already knew all that. Next week, Mercenaries are back and maybe Wolfie will drink a little less. #wolfieperm.

Grunt Guy Drama

Challenge Throwdown Events ended with a whimper. In this “very special” episode of Challenged we talk about Grunt Guy, the organizer of the Challenge Throwdown events and cover recent drama related to the events, tossing out personal stories about the events from our perspective. Don’t lose any sleep over the terrible events, they’re over now.

The Midnight Drive-In: Young Guns & Young Guns II

Not only is it the end of Slater September but it’s also Episode 50!  We sit down to go over the classic Young Guns and then follow that up with our Christian Slater film Young Guns II. On top of that Noah tries to declare who is the greatest Estevez of them all and after Doug brags about his free healthcare we make him read a long email.  All this and more!!!

Final Reckoning: You’re the Worst

Drama drama everywhere. This episode draws some lines in the sand between Challengers we like and Challengers we can barely tolerate. The eating challenge ends in a predictable way, and a pair end up in Redemption to make amends. That goes about as well as you’d expect it to go in a reality show fueled by booze and anger. Back in the main house, we see other fights, more drama and more people who we’ve decided to hate. No nominations, no voting and of course no eliminations this episode. C’mon MTV.

Graveyard Duck Episode 37 – The NES in 1987

What a difference a year makes. 1986 may have been a bit of a let down for the NES, but 1987 more than makes up for it. This week Scott and Wes discuss 1987 and what it meant for the NES while spotlighting a couple of our favorite, overlooked titles.

Final Reckoning: Redemption House of Cards

*ch ch* REDEMPTION HOUSE. This week is all about the Redemption House and the Apocalypse that actually sends people home for once! CT tries his best to stay in the game, but maybe not as hard as Derrick tries. At this stage in the game, I guess you have to give it your best shot to stay in. They’re battling for a million bucks after all. *ch ch* MAIN HOUSE. No real elimination from the main house so it’s a bit laid back, but we end the episode with an eating challenge which is our favorite. Lots of puking and lots of fun! We go way off topic this week, which once guy on iTunes hates. So it goes.

The Boise Brothers starring Abram and Mike: A break from Challenged

We interrupt this regular podcast feed for an episode of Couch Pilots! Wolfie and Tim join the flight as the regular pilots review Boise Brothers, a failed pilot put together by Challenge contestants Abram and Mike to hopefully sell MTV on a reality show. The pilot failed, obviously, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about it. For more details or to subscribe to Couch Pilots, head on over to their website, http://couchpilotspodcast.libsyn.com/.

The Midnight Drive-In: Slater September! Twilight Zone The Movie & Tales From The Darkside The Movie

Week 2 of Slater September is here.  First up is the movie take on some classic episodes of The Twilight Zone.  We chat about some of our favorite episodes and also talk the big controversy with the film.  After that Christian Slater appears in Tales From The Darkside The Movie to chop up some mummies.  Sit back and enjoy some classic horror anthologies.

Final Reckoning: Bro-ing Pains

It’s guy’s night, so grab your whiskey and cowboy hat and leave the women at home. We’re super efficient as we recap this episode but still cover a lot of ground. A nomination, a desperate Banana, a crazy elimination and a dramatic re-enactment of Paulie’s tweets that will hopefully make you hate him more than you already do. Also, how about a little back story on that Semester at Sea sweatshirt this episode? C’mon MTV, you can do better.

The Midnight Drive-In: SLATER SEPTEMBER! Gleaming The Cube & Airborne

We kick off Slater September with his skateboarding classic Gleaming The Cube.  We then follow that up with one of Bryan’s favorite rollerblading movies from the 90’s Airborne.  Also some discussions of hating a ringing cell phone, Friends, and Jessica Jones.

Graveyard Duck Episode 36 – The NES in 1986

After an unexplained week off, we’re back, and this week we’re continuing to look at the life of the NES, one year at a time. This week, 1986.

Final Reckoning: Shaneless

Eight episodes in and I have a very important question: Will anyone ever be sent home? The mercenaries play for a spot in the house, but let’s be honest… they’re getting into the game either way because if they lose, it’s Redemption House time. We see Kyle slutting it up, drama at a winery, drama in a bus, drama at home, and a salad bowl with lasers shooting out of it. Shane has a strategy in the rugby game, but will it work and is it worth it?

The Midnight Drive-In: The Last Shark & Jaws 5 (Cruel Jaws)

It’s shark week here at the drive in.  First we’ll be taking a look at The Last Shark which pretty much steals most of it’s story from Jaws.  Then after that we’ll be looking at Jaws 5 (aka Cruel Jaws) which literally steals everything from The Last Shark.  After that we talk some more shark movies, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, and Bryan reveals a theme month not to be missed starting next episode.

Final Reckoning: Big Little Lies

Killer Queen Kam is the lady with the plan in this episode, but c’mon MTV, are you ever gonna send anyone home? We see the Challengers dig out of a mine, a relationship between Tori and Derrick comes to a head, and Brad finally blinks. All this and more on this wonderful edition of Challenged.

The Midnight Drive-In: Lord Of The Rings (1978) & Wizards

This week Noah talked us into watching some Ralph Bakshi movies so we’re kicking things off with the 1978 animated version of Lord Of The Rings and then following that up with Bakshi’s look at a war torn future Apocalypse with Wizards.  On top of that Bryan and Doug get excited over the Young Guns movies, we plan out an entire Christian Slater Month, and Bryan gets confused as to why the Lord Of The Rings movie ends so abruptly.

Final Reckoning: A Series of Unfortunate Events

We’re not thrilled about the pace of this season, but we’ll keep bringing you the latest ’cause we love you. Too much drama up in here, too many relationships to follow, and too many people throwing hissy fits. But it’s ok. We see a challenge on a train, we see Brad throw fits, Cara throw fits, Kyle throw fits, Shane throw fits… Are we seeing a pattern. Also, some roosters invade the hen house. All this and more on this amazing episode of Challenged.

The Midnight Drive-In: Savage Streets & Sudden Death

This week we’re talking some rape revenge films.  Always a feel good topic.  Also Noah gets mad at Bryan and Doug for not being into Ralph Bakshi movies, we get a load of feedback, and Bryan gets mad at Noah and Doug when they don’t care about a dream that he had.  All this and more!

Graveyard Duck Episode 35 – The NES in 1985

This week we’re trying something a little different. Rather than spotlight a specific game, we’ve decided to spotlight an entire year. Scott and Wes take a look at 1985, and what that year held for the NES. We discuss the history and mention a few of the big titles of the year, but focus mainly on a couple of underrated and possibly overlooked titles.

Final Reckoning: Breaking Brad

Poor Brad deals with the bad news from the Redemption House, while the rest of the Challengers prepare for a Purge Challenge. We get relationship drama we don’t care about, team drama we’re too old for, and reminisce of the days when we used to get a challenge and an elimination in one week.

The Midnight Drive-In: Transformers The Movie & G.I. Joe The Movie

This week we’re doing a kids night and showing some cartoon movies from our childhoods in the form of 1986’s Transformers The Movie and then following that up with 1987’s G.I. Joe The Movie.  Just remember that “You got the touch, you got the power!”  Yo Joe.
