About this Episode

It’s a jumbo-sized episode this week as Scott and Joe crack into one of Can’t Buy a Thrill’s sleeper tracks, the bittersweet “Midnite Cruiser.” They then try to establish a cult for the baffling competitive karaoke dud Duets (2000), starring Gwenyth Paltrow, Huey Lewis, Andre Braugher, and Paul Giamatti (with hair and an earring!). Things veer into darker territory as the hosts grapple with Mikey and Nicky, Elaine May’s unflinching look at two ungentlemanly losers. Your humble episode description writer thinks this may be the best episode yet.
