Lions, Towers & Shields Bonus: "What's Up Doc?" She's Literally Bugs Bunny

I typically tell people that Lions, Towers & Shields covers classic films made between 1930 and 1960. For the members, let’s watch something a bit newer. In 1972, Peter Bogdanovich made a romantic comedy with Barbra Steisand and Ryan O’Neal. The director has said it was a nod to the screwball classics of the 30s, including, “Bringing Up Baby.” But it is not a remake, or even close. It is funny, it is wacky, and it takes place in the San Francisco of the early 70s.

Robot or Not: Inhuman Conditions

John and Jason attempt to play the are-you-a-robot game Inhuman Conditions. The first test of if you’re a robot or not is how quickly you can figure out a complicated board game. (Also: Is this a board game? We already did this one, but we do it again.)

Human Santapede (2021 edit)

‘Tis the season for holiday music! Unfortunately, while we unabashedly love the holidays, some holiday music is also very bad. There’s a Christmas Mouse and also some Christmas Shoes and (unfortunately for most) some Christmas Wrapping. We talk about what makes a good holiday song and complain about some of the worst the season has to offer.

[This version of a 2013 classic episode has been completely re-processed and re-edited from the original files. It is the latest in a long line of definitive re-issues of the original episode 173, “Santa-Based Christmas.” This might be the final one, but never say never.]

Agents of SMOOCH: Going Eyes Wide Shut

The Incomprehensible Agents of SMOOCH are back for a heist. We are constantly changing clothes but somehow no one notices that these Princesses are switching.

Get your drink ready and push play when Moises counts us in 3…2…1…


Agents of SMOOCH: Prince Among Dukes

Our Incomprehensible Agents of SMOOCH are in the Scottish Christmas mood in A Castle for Christmas. We’ve recruited Agent James Thomson for his in-depth knowledge of Scottishness but then discarded talking about the movie to talk about a dog named Hamish. Is this movie too long? Definitely. Does the knitting group make up for it? Almost. We of course fix everything and make plans to Moises this movie into a series. And our Director does what she does best which is to turn every commentary into a discussion of Michael Sheen.

Bonus BONUS commentary for the Michael Sheen Time Travel Christmas movie


High Society: Commentary and Hate Watch

We at Lions, Towers & Shields like The Philadelphia Story. We don’t like High Society, the musical remake. That, and a few drinks, are the ingredients that make a hate watch commentary, just for members of The Incomparable.
