Everyone's favorite adult retro game show is back and we tee off the month with a best of March battle. This week we are honored to have the incredibly versatile writer-director-actor Joel Murray pick up the gavel. One Crazy Summer is one of our favorite films here at Dueling Decades and Joel’s portrayal of the best friend everyone wanted to have, George Calamari definitely left its mark on us. Joel has had an amazing career in film, TV, and animation, working on some of our favorites like Mad Men, Dharma & Greg, Monsters University, The Artist, and God Bless America directed by his good friend Bobcat Goldthwait.  

So, Make sure your tray is in its upright position because Mancrush crashes into this one with the best of March 1977 aboard. Marc James asks whatcha’ gonna do when March 1987 runs wild on you? Also, Joe Findlay is back in action this week with the best of March 1997, Baby-Baby! 

Joel swings the gavel like he swings a golf club; swift and hard! When Joel isn't delivering verdicts, he's sharing some incredible stories! So in this episode, you may hear something about the wrong way to console a widow, clueless "movie critics", George Kennedy's affinity for disasters, Danny Glover's soft voice, Sybian adventures, NASA probes Uranus, scalping specials from the Silverdome, Joel talks Heels, sex-drugs and Atari, life after death, Nickelback of the 80s saves 29 Palms, The Pauly & Corey show, ABC stumbles into a ratings juggernaut, a horrible graduation party, Joel serves Bob Weir, strengthen your pecs with a Thighmaster, Bono's sunglasses, promo codes for William Murray Golf, Joel escorts Nikki Sixx's girlfriend, Cusack's missing credit card, the life of a cheesy mascot, eight is not enough, a supernatural high school, tales of a crazy summer in Nantucket, and who skipped the Oscars for a basketball game?!

Mike Ranger gets all achy breaky over the worst of February 1975, 1982 & 1993!

This week Duelers, we relish in the misfortunes of others with a wild and woolly worst of battle. With Mancrush soaking up the sun in South Beach we asked a longtime friend of the show Brent Hand of the Hysteria 51 podcast to step up and tackle the worst of February 1993. The Professor, Drew Zakmin is back with a vengeance and the absolute worst of February 1975! Finally, Marc James competes with the worst offerings from February 1982. A fan favorite, Mike Ranger returns behind the bench to judge these shoddy selections. 

Brent brings the sadness with 1993 and a year that just kept giving grief in many forms. We hear about the debut album from Tara Patrick and not the one you are thinking of. Drew Zakmin tries to take down a dinosaur with a zip gun and Marc James’s blood runs cold because his memory has just been sold! Brent breaks out a magazine staple of the 1980s and we hear about the origins of the Mirth Mobile! Cartoon animals invade DC Comics and just who exactly is the Chili Bowl Mullet Man anyway? The cast comes to an agreement that there are too many cop and hospital shows and Drew brings one of the worst. We cover a not so classic episode of M*A*S*H. Brent checks in to see what's happening in Waco while 3 hours away an unwelcome rocker finds a unique place to piss. The ground shakes in China and We hear about a series of unfortunate events on the set of The Crow you may not already know about! Find out what “worst of” movie is the debut film of a gerbil-loving Hollywood A-Lister. Then we hear about a pair of London tragedies only fitting of this episode.

The team behind the Nickelodeon documentary The Orange Years returns to judge the stupid criminals of 1974, 1980 & 1998!

We had so much fun the last time they were on the show we could not wait for the return of Adam Sweeney and Scott Barber the duo behind the fantastic documentary film "The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story". This time around we turned off the kid-stuff and threw them a curveball for some fun, as we investigate the idiots of dumb crime and capers! Mancrush swings into the 70s with 1974 and a slew of “hot” picks. Marc James is on a mission from God and hopes all the dumb criminals of 1980 can help him steal this one. Trevor Gumbal returns to the show with 1998 and some half-baked criminals caught in the act. 

It’s always fun to have returning guest judges on the show and as of late we have had some triumphant returns and Adam Sweeney and Scott Barber are no exception. Even though they are veteran judges Adam and Scott have their work cut out for them because the cast this week dug up some of the most crooked crooks committing some of the craziest crimes you will ever hear about. The judges are not the only returns to the show this week as a James Caan classic comes back but this time on the big screen. Find out the best places to steal music in 1998 and was it Buttercup or Butternuts anyway? Bagpipes blared as the police are Breaking The Law and everything else in a hotel room apparently. Thieves steal some sacrificial knives and 28 cents worth of brass. A famous singer gets caught with his pants down trying to Wham someone and a London heist gets caught on camera. Did a policeman have a sixth sense or was he just a racist? As well as their movie, Scott Barber wants everyone to check out the music of Westley Willis! We hear the story of an AWOL Huey Helicopter and you won’t believe what Jerry Springer wrote a check for in 1974!

This cast favorite is back for his third appearance behind the bench, and as usual, he proves that he's "Better Than the Rest" when it comes to judging.
