Judge John Hodgman Episode 221: I Want My nth TV

Caroline brings the case against her husband Steve. They cannot agree -- how many TVs is TOO many? Caroline thinks it's best to minimize TV watching, and that a single TV is most appropriate. Steve says it can't hurt to have a few extra screens as long as you don't go overboard. Who's right? Who's wrong? Only one man can decide.

Nick Warren named this week's case via the Judge John Hodgman Facebook page. Thanks, Nick!

Wet Hot American Summer's David Wain and Michael Showalter Return to Camp Firewood

In Hollywood, there are no shortage of films that have proven to be economic failures. And then there's one that was so polarizing that Roger Ebert was inspired to express his hatred of the film in a parody of Allen Sherman's "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh". Wet Hot American Summer survived both a lackluster theatrical release and Ebert's overwhelming negative review, and has lived on to earn a cult following. It's now been revived as an 8-part television series on Netflix.

The co-writers of the original film, David Wain and Michael Showalter, have again joined forces to make Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, as has most of the original cast, including Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, and Elizabeth Banks, plus a host of new faces.

Wain and Showalter join us to discuss their new series and how their inspiration for the original film was more 'Do The Right Thing' than 'Meatballs'; how they coped with negative reviews and their treasured memories of camp.

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is available to stream on Netflix.

Hello babies! Hot-diggety-dog, do we have a good episode for you! Emily has an obsession with a Japanese cat game and Lisa got a massage! Lisa also watched a Periscope that involved a bee and a nostril. If you could have any exotic pet (without any of the negatives) what would it be? Comedian Allen Strickland-Williams joins us to learn about pre-mastication and take part in an impromptu Minions point/counterpoint in this week's Wiki of the Week. He's also distracted by a fly before telling us everything he knows about presidential elections and being a page at NBC LA. Expert Parker Kerry gives the straight scoop on frosting and icing, then tells all about his campaign for an elected position on a frosting forum! Enjoy!
