The Greatest Generation DS9 Ep 219: 20 mg Gummies Throughout (DS9 S2E22)

| 0 comments

When a headache seems more serious than normal, Garak’s traditional evasiveness begins to stand in the way of Bashir’s ability to keep him alive. But when the doctor goes on a B & E to help his friend, he may end up condemning the tailor to a life of pure misery. Why doesn’t Dax manscape her house plants? Does Quark have a nonstick coating on that loaf? Is Odo’s true calling as a Roto-Rooter? Its the episode where we are very careful not to ‘pull a Richard.’

Come see us live on tour with Greatest Gen Khan

Skyscraper

We are Alonso-less this week! But no fear, we more than make up for it with our stellar array of guests. We've got the return of Drea "The Dope Rhyme Slaya" Clark. Plus, a first time guest, music supervisor and Heat Rocks host, Morgan Rhodes. The crew is discussing the new Rock film Skyscraper. Several parallels are made between this new "building related action film" and Die Hard. They evaluate the career and acting capabilities of The Rock himself. Plus, Morgan commemorates Poetic Justice on the 25th anniversary of its release. And as always, staff picks. Make sure to listen closely, because the "El Mero-Mero de Navidad" may make a cameo in this episode.

In news, a lost Stanley Kubrick script is found, Jude Law addresses Dumbledore's sexuality, and Bruce Willis says Die Hard is NOT a Christmas movie.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Die Hard with a Vengeance
April - Innocence
Morgan - 1). Paris Blues 2). Love Jones
Drea - 1). Blindspotting 2). Pain and Gain

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again with Dave Holmes

Jonathan Ames created several TV shows, including Bored to Death and Blunt Talk. He’s also the author of many books, including You Were Never Really Here, which was recently adapted into a movie.

Janet Varney stars in the TV show Stan Against Evil and hosts of the podcast The JV Corner.

In this episode, we’ll learn about Jonathan’s experience with having his book transformed into a movie and why, for all his literary expertise, he still has trouble pronouncing certain words. We’ll also hear more about Janet’s involvement at the annual Sketchfest and why she enjoys talking to women about their awkward teen years. And both Janet and Jonathan wonder what Jodie Foster is up to while they are on stage. Is she watching TV with someone while getting a nice neck massage? We may never learn the answer to that question. But GFY listeners will learn other things by listening to this episode.

What’s the difference?

What’s the difference between a “Presidential Pardon” and “Presidential Commutation”?
