If you’re staring at this week’s show title wondering if that’s a snack in the food aisle at your local adult store, it is not. It’s Channing Tatum’s new nickname. Why would we call him that? Please see the episode titled, “The Beck-ening” which contains one of our more memorable stories still brought up from time to time. Why are we talking about Channing Tatum? Because he’s got several movies coming out this year including G.I. JOE: RETALIATION and 21 JUMP STREET. Both of these films sound awful.
Charlie can count his lucky stars he slept too late and missed this week’s program because it’s not just reboots of 80′s TV series and toy-turned-movie sequel blandness we have to look forward to in the theater this year… oh no, there’s also sequels to films that didn’t need them, sequels to films that shouldn’t have had a first one to begin with, a movie based on the Navy SEALS mission that killed Osama bin Laden, more comic book flicks, a 3D version of a certain chainsaw-wielding wacko who goes on a massacre, a sequel to a comic book movie whose original was really bad, Daniel Radcliffe ditches the wand, the CLASH OF THE TITANS remake gets an unneeded second, Johnny Depp stars in another Tim Burton film, Tim Burton produces a movie based on one of his first stop-motion shorts, Hasbro continues to sell its soul, Will Smith insures his is never coming back, a guy named ‘Webb’ will give us his emo-take on THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Bruce Wayne slips on his cape for the last ‘good’ time — although DC is probably already planning Batman’s reboot after Nolan calls it quits, you’ll be demanding a recall on Collin Farrell’s version of TOTAL RECALL, Stallone and friends will come back to blow stuff up and blow people’s heads off, the fight against the Umbrella Corp. will continue, Universal’s monsters will be raped a second time in the ass after contracting Hepatitis from VAN HELSING, RED DAWN will also see the dawn of its reboot, KNOCKED UP will get a spin-off, a Hansel and Gretel movie will come out this year with a plot so ridiculous the guys are convinced I made it up. We did that on the 2010 look ahead and it was just as difficult back then to tell the real from the fake. I swear to you, I did not make any of these up this time around. These films are all real!
Somewhere between the messes of movies being rattled off I run out of Sam Adams Black and Brew (my new favorite of theirs having tried it for the first time on today’s show) and we learn what pig semen smells like from Sheena, Charlie’s female fill-in.
