11. The Toys That Made Us 3: GI JOE: FACE PARTS

Standard apology: We are so sorry it took us a month to review one episode of a show. Phew, glad that's over. I feel better. So, this time we talked about Netflix's show THE TOYS THAT MADE US: GI JOE to wrap up our show coverage (until they make more). The bad news is we mostly got on tangents and the podcast is 70% Back to the Future references. Sorry, again, that Josh keeps saying "back-cards." And also sorry that Adam sings. It's really hard to switch him off once he gets going. Content notes: The Fighting Yank, Mister Sexy, "As Am I", K-mart toy aisle crying fits, FACE PARTS: an original screenplay, trademark us. ...

32. Whatever Happened To GI Joe?

BOTH Arnett brothers join us this time, including new guest and GI Joe fanatic Jon, as we delve into the most iconic plastic army men of the Reagan era. We wonder--and expert Jon helps us unpack--why doesn't anyone like GI Joe anymore? EVEN MORE of the Arnett family history is revisited, as it is so inextricably tied up in GI Joe nostalgia. We go beyond just Joe talk too, and broach cerebral topics like the psychology of our collecting addictions, and the dark nature of capitalism itself. But don't worry, we spend plenty of time talking about Chuckles! Jon recounts the glory days of the insane folks on the GI Joe forums in great detail. Then there is some...disagreement between Jon and Blake about Batman and Tom King. Had to shut that shit down. Music: More Of That (new album out now on your favorite streaming services!) ...
