EVERYBODY SHUT UP. It’s time for J.C. to see their first silent movie. And what a one to start with — the Buster Keaton classic comedy, The General. The Immortals are amazed by Keaton’s stunts and confused by the fact he’s a Confederate soldier. They also enjoy the jazz music of Stan Getz and Charlie Parker–I MEAN Charlie Byrd. They also fall into the rhythms of Roy Brown and British hospital soap operas. Get excited!
One, two, Pedro’s coming for you. Find out if The Immortals are more scared by A Nightmare on Elm Street or Pedro’s enthusiasm for it. They also listen to the Congolese music of Koffi Olomide and the very 90s music of De La Soul. Then they get into the international spy story starring Daniel Craig….that is no where close to as good as any James Bond movie. Also J.C. is sick and that amuses us.
Hahahahaha! It’s Robin Hood! Focus not on the crimes of Errol Flynn, but his natural charisma in The Adventures of Robin Hood. Ha ha! The Immortals (sans J.C.) dive back into the work of Leonard Cohen and are moderately creeped out by Dark Shadows. But it’s during the song segment where everything changes forever. Find out why The Immortals had to stop recording and freak out.
Who’s that over there? Is that Veronique? Or Weronika? There lies the complexity of the film The Double Life of Veronique. The Immortals dive into the films beauty and confusion while leaving plenty of time to continue that artistic relaxation to The Cardigans. Then it’s time to get more emotional with 2Pac’s tribute to his mother. Then it’s time to get way less emotional with a deep dive into the first season of CW’s The Vampire Diaries. Get excited!
IN THIS CORNER WE HAVE THE ITALIAN STALLION! IN THIS CORNER WE HAVE FOUR PODCASTERS WHO HAVE TO SHARE THE SAME SPACE. GO! For some, this was returning to warmly spare with Rocky and for some this was their first time duking up. Find out if the film goes the distance with The Immortals. Also they listen to the mysterious Terence Trent D’Arcy and the not at all mysterious Iron Maiden. Also after they got the shit beat out of them, they all checked into Sacred Heart to see the doctors of Scrubs. Get excited!
In 1001 episodes, it’s probably likely there will eventually be a musical episode of The Immortals. Not quite there yet, but we’re close with reviews of Nashville, Butthole Surfers and David Bowie. It’s a wide range of seeing the world through the illusion of the American dream, through the celebration of dance and through the Butthole Surfers. They also dive into the beloved show Gilmore Girls! Which has 100% less Butthole Surfers.
The Immortals have entered a new year! It’s 2019 no matter what the co-hosts claim it is when they recorded this one. They’re here to kick things off right which means spending a lot of time on a movie where Scarlett Johansson is a killer alien. They also listen to some smooth sounding music from Wild Beasts and Lily Allen. Austin watched six hours of The Crimson Field for a five minute segment. But most importantly, this was J.C.’s pick for a bonus review — the Netflix food documentary Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Get hungry!
In the last episode of 2018, it’s time for all of the HOT TAKES about the 90s. Like maybe it’s all garbage? First they look at the forgotten indie film, Smoke filled with some of the decade’s best actors. Then they open their hearts to the vulnerability of Incubus. Then they learn it’ll be okay with Macy Gray. Then the Australian dramedy ruins the thread by coming out in 2011 but it’ll still get HOT TAKES. Stay tuned for the most shocking henge rating of all time….
At any given moment, one of the Immortals are pulling a long con on the other one. (For example, Austin tricked them to do a 20 year podcast.) So everyone related really well to the Preston Sturges comedy, The Lady Eve. They also listened to Johnny Cash recording an album in prison, The Drifters walking down a street and one British man’s take on all of civilization. I’m sure that won’t go horribly wrong. Plus more True Crime Gays and finding out what’s on Pedro’s Chrome tabs! Get excited!
It’s been over 100 episodes since The Immortals watched a film where Natalie Wood plays a damned teenager so they’re past due! They watch Splendor in the Grass and then return to Pedro’s childhood by listening to Aerosmith. They also figure out exactly where the Rocky Mountains are as they almost focus on John Denver and then Austin complains about how long Anzacs was. IT’S GOOD STUFF AND YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO ALL OF IT.
