The Immortals return to argue about Laurel and Hardy. Pedro takes it to heart and travels to Chicago for this recording (and for the Sons of the Desert conference, of course.) Also they get psychedelic with Country Joe and the Fish, learn a surprising amount from a children’s book, review their first gospel song and watch Austin absolutely geek out about Doctor Who. Get excited.
The Immortals travel back to the Old West and find it’s not what they’re used to when they watch McCabe & Mrs. Miller. Thankfully they get warmed up with some Pyromania from Def Leppard, they’re told they’re special by The Pretenders, as well as revisiting some capers, find a magical nickel and talk about the crimes of Scotland. Also will The Immortal’s plan succeed to defeat their current intern? Get excited!
Every week we try and find everything that we can so we can review them and end this annoying curse. But sometimes we have geographical or language barriers. If you wise listeners know a way that we can find a way to review them from Chicago or central Indiana, please leave a comment and let us know.
So far we’ve run into trouble with…..

Paca from Episode 22

Arracacha from Episode 31
Lucuma from Episode 32
Coral Trout from Episode 39
Stories from the Year One Thousand from Episode 37
My One-Legged Friend and Me from Episode 41
Turkish fur Anfanger from Episode 4 (Need English subtitles!)
Lindenstrasse from Episode 24 (Need English subtitles and more episodes)
The Immortals return with a lot of positive reactions this week. One of the most popular sitcoms of all time, Friends, is reviewed in the same episode as a fancy duck, Van Halen, a trip down the Amazon, porn (sorta) and a movie that Austin hasn’t seen! Also, the gang decides to name each day of the week for alcohol and the new intern continues to cause a lot of problems.
The Immortals return to race against some hypersexual go-go dancers! Who will survive and who will think this is even a good idea. They also compare a punk album to Lawrence of Arabia and Spaced, somehow. One Immortal almost starts crying thinking about The Secret Garden and one Immortal straight up did cry watching the TV show. Also a song! But no food. Sadness. Get excited!
The Immortals return for what’s definitely their worst episode as decided by Austin and not any of the other Immortals. That’s almost entirely because he messes up his verb tenses as they discuss The Bad and the Beautiful, which delves into Hollywood ambition, the redemption of Deep Purple, something that’s not dog food, a song that isn’t “Smoke on the Water”, a featherless goose and a medical examiner who sometimes examines medicine. They also learn what a whore’s dinner and how Pedro has a fragile brain.
The Immortals return and they hope that you’ll enjoy the show. They listen to Mexican waltzes, Spanish political documentaries and a little thing called Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band! They once again are up against Germany as they refuse to ever give us subtitles—this time for children’s poetry. They also rock out to fantastic live performances. Also they review grapes. They’re just grapes! Plain ole grapes! And they review them!
The Immortals return right when it’s darkest before the dawn. They review tales of Gotham and the even grosser world of Ray Donovan’s Los Angeles. They journey far to the past to tell the tales of King Arthur and some other kid named Arthur and listen to the sorta folk sorta rock musings of Richard Hawley. Also Pedro tells the most ridiculous tale of him trying to cure his hangover and ends up poisoning himself even further. Also also, the mythology of the show is once again changed forever! In that we actually address the mythology! Get excited!
The Immortals return to review one film that is actually 32 films but is actually one film! That is way easier to follow than anything Pedro tries to say about LL Cool J’s rap feuds and the world of drum and beat. They also try a rye bread that may secretly be chocolate cake, which still isn’t as sweet as the lives of the Bravermans. Also Adam and Austin discover a YA book they really should have read by now. Get excited!
The Immortals return for their last catch-up bonus episode! Pedro is here to confusingly guide us through some sort of weird French song that is definitely not French, the richness of early hip-hop and Tomorrow Never Knows, one of the stranger Beatles songs ever recorded. At least that’s what Don Draper thinks. Get excited.
