Lee and Daniel are back to cap off this run of the sex comedy series, this time with their friend and returning special guest Kit Power, who suggested the films they cover in this episode. We get to see more of the on-screen talents of Ann-Margret in the flashy Elvis film "Viva Las Vegas" (1964) & in the deep-but-depressing "Carnal Knowledge" (1971). Was Elvis a good actor, or did Ann-Margret steal his thunder? Can two people have six or seven dates in one day? Is a mash-up of "Viva Las Vegas" and "Death Race 2000" a good idea? Are there any easy answers to how to help the deeply flawed characters in "Carnal Knowledge"? How does Jack Nicholson fuck, and would we sleep with him? Also: what we've watched as of late and some REALLY terrible Elvis impersonation.
