The best place to enhance your Brian power!

An exploration of all the Brians out there in order to expand our horizons... you know, pick their Brians a little.

Episode 0107 - Happy Life Gobble!!

11-17-2018

It's a pre-Thanksgiving helping of Brian Trust stuffing!! This week, the Brians chat about the recent passing of Stan Lee and others (celebs die in 3s, folks... it's a thing!), as well the upcoming double helping of MST3K for its 30th anniversary this year. They also bring up the 40th anniversary (on the date this was recorded!) of the legendarily-infamous Star Wars Holiday Special, which leads into a discussion of their early TV watching days at the dawn of cable TV and waxing nostalgic about evolving phone technology.

Man, there are a LOT of pay phones apparently available for filming in "The Americans". Seriously... so much pay phone usage. Anyway, Happy Life Day everyone!
