This week Lee and Daniel take a look at Sam Peckinpah's boozy crime/revenge tale, "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia" (1974). Is it a late Peckinpah masterpiece, or is it just a mess? Also talked about: what they've watched as of late (including the new MST3K), and they read a couple of listener comments.
NOTE: there are a few audio glitches in this due to Skype being a prick. Sorry about that.

Lee and Daniel continue their look at crime films. This week they tackle the lonely, quiet getaway drivers of "The Driver" (1978) and "Drive" (2011) in a big episode. They also cover what they've watched as of late and Lee announces an upcoming podcast that will be debuting under the TMBDOS! Radio banner at the end of the month. What's it going to be about? Well, here's a hint: this episode is filled with more soundtrack music than usual.

The gang is back together (briefly) to pay tribute to the late Bill Paxton, as Paul, Daniel and Lee relate their memories of his career on film. Before they bid Paul farwell, what they've watched as of late is also chatted about. Then Lee and Daniel get into the meat of the episode by talking about the thriller/neo-noir "A Simple Plan", from 1998, directed by Sam Rami of all people.

As usual with these intermission episodes, the original plans fell through for an official episode, so here's a small fix for those who expect an episode every week. This time out friend of the show Kit Power has come through like a superstar to give you all a verbal beat-down of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016), and then he has much more positive things to say about "The LEGO Batman Movie" (2017). Lee is also on this saying some things of less importance.

Lee and Daniel are back to cover two crime movies featuring the vocal, acting, and visual talents of Ann-Margret: one unfairly-judged, in 1964's "Kitten With a Whip", and one almost totally lost to time in 1969's "Rebus". Also covered: what the hosts have watched as of late; listener comments; and they do get into a short rant about female models and sex workers, who were often used in many of the films of this era, dropped, and then forgotten about.

No regular episode this week, so Lee tries to come up with something to talk about in an intermission episode. Mostly it's just commercials and music. Can't win them all.

Finally sitting down to do an episode that was planned months beforehand, Lee and Paul chat about John Russo's "Midnight" (1982) & Joseph Ellison's "Don't Go in the House" (1979). Paul also chats a bit about his time attending the 2016 Living Dead Weekend and the people he talked to at the event, including Russo himself. This one is pretty loose and lacking fucks, as both hosts are drunk, but it's generally a pretty fun conversation, and they do try to review the films. What more can you ask for on a free podcast? NOTHING! That's what.

Lee and Daniel start off 2017 by looking at Curtis Hanson's epic 1950s crime picture "L.A. Confidential" (1997). A lot of time is spent talking about the characters, the way the action is shot, and if the film is a truly a noir or not. They also talk about the differences between the film and the James Ellroy novel of the same name, that it was adapted from. Also covered: what they've watched as of late (WARNING: there's some "Rogue One" spoilers) and a good deal of listener comments are read and responded to.

The year of 2016 is over, so time to talk about what movies the hosts liked best! Like in previous best-of episodes, Lee and Daniel come together to talk about the best films they've watched for the first time in the year, not strictly just films from that year. Lee failed to realise that he had a top eleven instead of a top ten. Daniel also has a short list of performances he enjoyed from first-time watches this past year. This is a very casual and lightly edited episode, not quite up to our usual shitty standards, but the conversation is quite fun. TMBDOS! wishes all of our listeners a happy new year. Stay safe. Be good. Well, not too good, but you get our drift.
Lee's Best of 2016:
"I Am Thor"
"I Am Not a Serial Killer"
"To Live and Die in L.A."
"Hell or High Water"
"We Are still Here"
"Bad Day at Black Rock"
"The Long Goodbye"
Daniel's Best of 2016:
"The Hateful Eight"
"Gas Pump Girls"
"The Big Sleep"

What echos the Christmas/Holiday season better than "Q - The Winged Serpent" (1982)? If there's anything more fitting, Lee and Daniel don't want to know about it. Yes, this week they tackle Larry Cohen's low-budget throw-back to the great 1950s monster films, discuss what they've watched as of late, and respond to an abundance of listener feedback.

This week Paul returns to join Lee in a quick and fairly casual chat about "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" (1982) and "Night of the Creeps" (1986). That's right, it's Tom Atkins times two this week. What they've watched as of late and listener comments are also covered. It should be noted that the audio quality isn't great this time out. Lee had his mic turned up in the Google+ Hangout they recorded in by mistake, so Paul comes in a bit low in the mix. Apologies in advance.

Fate has conspired against the regular podcasting plans this week so Lee is flying solo for an intermission episode. This week he shouts-out a podcast that mentioned TMBDOS! and goes over some of his recent DVD purchases. Then he looks at a list of upcoming horror films in 2017... and, well, he wasn't drunk enough to deal with it. Enjoy!

This week Lee and Daniel take a look at two blaxploitation films with a female lead that don't star Pam Grier (don't worry, they'll eventually get to her as well). Up for review first is the Bondish "Cleopatra Jones" (1973), and then the cheap, chopsocky cash-in "TNT Jackson" (1974). Listener comments are also covered. This one is a bit more of a casual episode again -- short and sweet and hard to defeat. Take a hard line and you'll have a bad time. Turn that frown upside down or you'll enter demolition town. It has kicks to the head that will leave you dead. Okay, we'll stop now.

To cap off the official episodes for October of 2016 Lee and Daniel are joined by their friend Jack Graham of Shabogan Graffiti to discuss, in-depth, both the original 1922 silent vampire classic "Nosferatu", directed by F.W. Murnau, as well as the 1979 remake, directed by Werner Herzog. Just how German expressionist is the original anyway? What version of the original should one seek out? Is the remake an improvement on the original? How many bad vampire puns can the hosts make before even they get tired of it? Tune in to have these questions answered and to hear about what they've watched as of late; cover listener comments; and for a brief announcement on the schedule of the podcast going forward after this month.
