The Creators of the new Nickelodeon documentary The Orange Years slime 1977, 1988 & 1997!

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Did you grow up watching Nickelodeon? We sure did! Sure, Mancrush was watching Friday the 13th when he was like five, but he still watched himself some Nickelodeon. So the moment the boys saw mention of a Nickelodeon documentary, they jumped at the chance to get "The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story" directors' Adam Sweeney and Scott Barber on the show. First off, if you're a fan of Nick, you really should find yourself a copy of this documentary, it's packed with some green, slimy nostalgia! Second, Scott and Adam were amazing judges. To make sure this episode fit the bill, these guys had to decide which decade was "The Best for Kids". Our boy, Joe Findlay from the Great White North is back, and he came with the best options kids had from 1997. Playing the middle of the Oreo, Mancrush came correct with a snapshot of a kid's existence in 1988. Rounding it all out, Marc James rides in the rear of the wood-paneled station wagon with no seatbelt on as he delivers with 1977!

As judges, Adam and Scott are hard to beat. You can feel their passion for each and every selection that was handed to them. This one is tight, but they managed to make that final call! In this episode, you might hear something about: getting slimed and loving it, pandering to wives, hooking up with your girlfriend's friends cause she demanded it, Hakuna Matata with a side of sax and violence, everything needs more Teek, bad movie reviews, cartoon fetishes, a classic is born, the origins of a real piece of trash, analytical football for kids, the king of cellulite, the grandpappy of livingroom gaming, magic sticks, critiquing Mom against Donna Reed, tie-breakers, some behind the scenes stories from The Orange Years, and who sported an Emmanuel Lewis fanny pack?

Guest Judge RJ City presides as the crew Wrestles with the history of 1981, 1989 & 1995

It's been a while since we talked about wrestling with someone who cares! The Honorable David Schultz turned his nose up at every wrestling selection we brought to the table, so it was time we found the right Judge for the case! Professional wrestler RJ City answered the call, and he must have been fresh off his morning coffee in his underwear because this guy is a walking encyclopedia of ALL things; not just wrestling! When he's not tag-teaming with David Arquette, RJ must be reading anything he can get his hands on, because he literally knew about everything we threw at him! Beau Becraft joins us this week, and he's happy as a schoolboy on pizza day to be back with all the wrestling accolades of 1995! His first opponent Mancrush is still reeling from defeat and looks to right the ship with wrestling of 1989. Rounding out our contestants for this week, Marc James prepares to dismantle the competition with wrestling of 1981. 

RJ City is ready to deliver a "Knee Arthur" to anyone who steps out of line, but did we give him a reason to? There are so many deep dives in this episode! RJ's thoughts on signing with a major organization, cobb salads, the return of the Mongolian Stretcher match, the birth of real wrestling competition, empty arenas, The Oak Ridge Boys, David Moble loves baklava hausen, 5 Star matches, Hall of Famers, rubber toys that don't belong to Mom, Vince McMahon stranded on a roof, the best linebacker to ever live, horrible movies, good movies, horrible TV shows that paved the way for a new world order, local bands that suck, 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon that's beyond belief, Lewis Arquette is super fly, Ox Baker is everywhere, grabbing cake, the WWE's most successful movie, arcade games, Snake Plissken is the coolest name ever, The Wrestling Boot Band hurts our ears, a legitimate wrestle war, wrestling is "fake", and just what does RJ City think about Kayfabe in the year 2020?
