About this Episode

This week, Scott and Joe scrape the flesh off of Dakota’s favorite Steely Dan song (so far), the mock-anthemic “Kings.” Then they take aim at Kevin Costner in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991) and fall under the spell of Abel Ferrara’s dreamy gangster story King of New York (1990). Historical myths (and Kevin Costner’s ego) are deflated, and Christopher Walken is recognized as true royalty.
