We're back with a new commentary track for you, Extravaganzers! This time for the John Travolta-starring, pie-singing, shirtless-William Hurted, bull-fighting, most awkwardly paced romantic story-arced, Oliver Platt-filled 90s classic MICHAEL!

Remember when John Travolta made movies that people actually liked? It really happened, and "Michael" was one of the best. Or worst. We really don't know anymore.

In fact, this commentary may have revealed more sinister undertones for this film than we ever realized. Listen and find out, all you Oliver Platt fans...

Unfortunately there was a bit of technical issues with our recording. We apologize, but it should still work pretty well with the flick. And if not, I mean, it's "Michael." He's an angel. He eats a lot of sugar. There's a dog. You'll be fine. Just remember what John and Paul said. The apostles? No, The Beatles: "Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park."

37: Top Five Favorite Kevin Smith Characters

AKA In a row?

Snootch to the nooch, Extravaganzers! In this episode the boys mourn two more lost heroes (if...a few years late for one of them), have a heartwarming conversation about nuclear annihilation, muse on President Adam, talk about super nets, ponder Adam's death, and eventually go over their top five favorite Kevin Smith-created characters and their defining lines. We have a lot of heroes at JJPE, and Kevin may be our #1. Who else could we talk about on our 37th episode? Snoogans.

AKA Wham, bam, thank you, ma'am.

Listen up alligators, mama-papas, space invaders, and rock n' rollin' bitches. Keep your 'lectric eye on this god-awful small affair as the boys discuss Arkansas' original state motto, Adam making a scene at the San Francisco International Airport, James' potential dip into The Twilight Zone, musicals!, wrinkles, and eventually their top five favorite Alan Rickman scenes and our most Bowie Bowie lyrics. It'll make sense when you hear it. Mostly.

We lost two of our heroes and decided to honor them as we only know how: arbitrary list-making.

35: Most Wanted Star Wars Spin-Offs

AKA Our Star Wars Holiday Special

Listen up Padawans and Toydarians, the boys are back to discuss Chuck E. Cheese, Adam's...frightening love of Disney World, the origin of...a certain hobby, and, eventually, Star Wars. In particular, their top five most wanted Star Wars spin-offs. Spoiler alert, Dexter Jettsters, whole lotta talking about that new Star Wars movie...and possibly the Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978. And by possibly we mean definitely. And by definitely we mean that song by Beatrice(!) Arthur is fantastic.

Goodnight, but not goodbye...

PS. Check out our new logo by the fantastically talented Samantha "Cosmic" Hyatt! Such art! Much talent!

34: Least Favorite Batman Villains and Greatest American Artists

AKA Did You Forget?

Not a joke! Not a lie! Not a slice of pumpkin pie (unfortunately)! The JJPE is back and as verbose and vulgar as ever! Over a year later the boys return to take apart pop culture and needlessly argue over meaningless claptrap. In this episode Adam is obsessed with...I forgot, James describes a charming medical procedure, and the duo list their top five least favorite Batman villains and their top five greatest American artists. We're back for good, folks. Thanks for sticking around. This is good coffee.

JJPE Special: Angels in the Outfield Commentary

In this special episode the boys take (another) break from their usual list-making shenanigans and lay down a commentary track for the Disney classic "Angels in the Outfield". Marvel at Tony Danza soup. Coo over shirtless Matthew McConaughey. Spot the man with the banjo! 

"Angels in the Outfield" in its entirety can be found on YouTube with some clever searching so watch, laugh, and witness the end of civilization just because some dumb foster kid couldn't understand his meth-addicted father's sarcasm. Seriously, this movie has some twisted implications. Listen up!

Have the Angels won the pennant since this movie came out?\
