Richard Gabai gets Hot Under The Collar as he judges this duel between 1971, 1981 & 1991!

We asked fan-favorite, Rhonda Shear if she knew anyone who might be interested to come on the show to guest judge, and she immediately mentioned Richard Gabai. If you were a fan of USA's Up All Night in the '90s, you most definitely have seen Richard's work. Virgin High, Assault of the Party Nerds, Vice Girls, and a plethora of other gems! Richard hasn't stopped since then, producing, acting, and singing! Richard is in a great band called Richard Gabai and The Checks, and you should check them out on Spotify! Richard also sings the praises for one of our competitors this week, but which one? Joe Findlay is back this week, and he represents the best August 1991 you can handle! His first opponent has been on a hot streak of late, Marc James is back with a helping of August 1981 that doesn't disappoint. Finally, Mancrush rounds out the bunch by delving deep into August of 1971! 

This was such a fun episode for the guys, Richard is a talented guy that knows his stuff, and he's a fan of Joe Findlay's passive aggression! This episode is loaded with lots of goodies! Check out Richard's latest work "Justice" on Netflix, or go to Amazon Prime and watch some of his Up All Night classics! Other than that, you might hear stories about STDs, turning 150k into two million bucks, the birth of an iron man, government coverups, an epic launch, characters that like rubber nipples, an intricate love story that turns awkward, a murder of a radio star, candy no one can unwrap, a landmark in gaming, 5150 - no, not that one, one of the greatest albums ever made, nothing else matters but numbers, the king of compelling dialect scores a lady half his age, pandering to the judge with a documentary, one of the greatest horror movies of all time, Richard's Dad gives Marc a point, Gary Busey stages a shutdown over Richard, the rigors of the celebrity tennis circuit, and what former Nerd plays guitar in Richard's band?

Judge Jamie Kennedy returns to break down this duel between 1974, 1984, & 1993!

He might not be back in Scream 5, but he's back again on Dueling Decades! Fresh off a photoshoot, Jamie Kennedy joins the game show once again! With a fresh tea in one hand and a gavel in the other, Jamie sits down poolside to judge another retro battle this week. It's not just any retro battle though, this episode is all about "games". Video games, board games, Tiddlywinks, any game you can think of! Our first competitor needs little introduction, Drew Zakmin has brought some fierce competition of late, and it won't end this week with the best games of 1974. Marc James has also been tearing things up of late, and he brings some primo games from 1993. Rounding out the competition this week, Mancrush is back after dominating last week, but will he build upon that impressive performance? We shall see, as he brought the finest games 1984 had to offer. 

Jamie was so awesome to come back and chill with the guys! They did feel bad for chatting him up for two hours, but it was well worth it. This episode is packed with all kinds of goodies: a video game that got away with ripping off the planet, Swedes that can really sing, a former Vice President pens an unlikely hit, prison yard basketball at the arcade, an elementary school fight club, an unbelievable streak by a great Canadian, a TV show that Joey Fatone ripped off, a kid's show that's being rebooted for adults, two giants change the toy industry, long balls, death threats, too much blood for the mother's of America, the most violent "kids" movie ever created, Roger Moore might have been a bit of a stretch for Drew, a Yankee with three nipples, movies that Jamie didn't think came out planned, questions Jamie hates getting asked, Millenials love Son of the Mask, Randy is dead, Disney almost made a beloved horror flick, Jamie almost went rafting with Seth Green,why working on movies is better than TV, megalomaniacal principals, the grandpa of fighting games, a couple plumbers from Brooklyn make a movie, and what the hell is a "bagpuss"?!

Original video vixen Tawny Kitaen shows off her judging skills on this duel between 1975, 1987 & 1994!

We're excited to introduce Tawny Kitaen, the original video vixen from the 1980s who was kind enough to stop by the show. Even though the guys woke her from her slumber, she's still here and ready to swing the gavel as our guest judge; live from her bed. Mike Ranger took some time away from the Video Rangers podcast to bring the best week he could conjure up from mid-July 1994. His first opponent, Joe Findlay of Miscast Commentary is back with his first-ever helping from the 1970s, as he brings his week for the ages from mid-July 1975. Back on a losing skid again, Mancrush looks to find his mojo with his best offering from mid-July 1987. This episode is packed with nostalgic goodies! 

Tawny was so extremely happy to be awoken by these three hooligans that she even offered them one of her new exclusive candles for the Podcast New York studio. She loved them that much, but will she love the picks that much? Bet your bottom she did! In this episode, you may find stories about Tawny nitpicking a pitcher's decisions, the best things you can buy for a dollar, a movie no one really liked, cartoons from the 70s, a musicians philanthropy, a metal god's first show, cake and sodomy, Tawny wants Taco Bell, a kingdom collapses, everyone loves the long ball, obscure comic books, another big weird ball, a game you can't play in the backseat of a car at night, a spokesmodel that outshined his or her product, another multicolored ball no one in the US cares about, David Lee Roth's insatiable appetite, one man's trash is another man's treasure, a good movie that seems to be forgotten, a collection of legends, Tawny marries Joe and divorces him, and what's in the box, and what does it smell like??
