Wham Bam Pow

We had a change of plans this week -- we're tabling our review of Avengers Age of Ultron and instead digging into Mad Max: Fury Road, this summer's hottest Charlize Theron-helmed action flick. Grab Tom Hardy and use him to stabilize your rifle!

Special thanks to Brian "Sunny D" Fernandes for stepping in to engineer this week's episode!

Next week, we'll be watching Infernal Affairs, which is available now on Netflix Watch Instant.

Follow us on Twitter! Cameron is @cameronesposito, Rhea is @rheabutcher and Ricky is @rickycarmona. Discuss the show using the hashtag #WhamBamPow!

One Bad Mother

Amy Dickinson

Biz and Theresa wonder why sometimes a crisis is easier than regular life? Maybe we wouldn't feel this way if we got trophies and a standing ovation every time we did the dishes or handled bedtime solo! Plus, success leaves a bad taste in Biz's mouth, Theresa discovers the secret to keeping a clean house, and we talk to nationally syndicated advice columnist Amy Dickinson, who reminds us, “It’s just a baby.”

TS186:Jem,Vinaigrette, Females vs. Female Presidents, Gay Ireland​, Mad Max

Throwing Shade

The "Jem and the Holograms" trailer was as terrible as Bryan's too long description on making the perfect hard boiled eggs. But "Mad Max:Fury Road" helped, so did making fun of a Dallas lady whose Facebook post about why women can't be president went viral and talking about Ireland possibly passing equal marriage by a landslide (or everyone chickening out at the last minute). Ohhh, hunty, she's a hot one!

Alien Invasion! w/ John Rocha

John Steven Rocha

Hello Buddies! A quick question: if aliens DO exist, do you think they will invade us? What if they want to befriend us and we jump to conclusions? If they do want to invade us, how could we possibly defend ourselves?! Which nation would be in charge?! How would the world rebuild post invasion?! Also, when was the last time you watched Independence Day? It's like, REALLY good.
