It's more 1980s; it's more sci-fi, but with some punk rockers, a latino militant rebel group, Harry Dean Stanton, and lots of generic groceries! Yup, it's time for Lee and Daniel to check out Alex Cox's Repo Man from 1984. Lee starts off fairly intoxicated and just gets worse, but the conversation is as fun as hell. Listener comments and what the hosts have listened to are also covered.

Lee and Daniel are back, continuing on their (mostly) 1980s sci-fi theme to cover 1986's "Short Circuit" and the sequel from 1988 "Short Circuit 2". Then they jump into the 1990s to phreak-out with the cult classic "Hackers" (1995). There's a surprising amount of talk about the background of the hacker culture, and a lot of asides about all three films, including Lee's take on what "Short Circuit 2" should have actually been about. What they've watched as of late and a larger than usual amount of listener comments are read and responded to in an already longer-than-usual episode.
