Dirty Sons of Pitches

The British are coming, the British are coming. No, they've already invaded our televisions. The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" discuss their favorite British TV shows and then adapt a British Tv property for an Americna audience. Then they play a game of Defend Yourself with the films of Alan Moore's graphic novels, tackling the hardest one, "The League of Extroadinary Gentlemen." Along the way they discuss Robocop's need for self-love to be designed in his costume, the depressing heights of "Law and Order SVU: Russia," the truth that all undecided voters are really Eskimoes, the vastly different endings for the British and American versions of "Life on Mars," Ben's Mr. Bucket as the Most Interesting Man in the World, the unhealthy state of Richard Griffiths, crime inspiring pie-making, how "Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows" ripped off "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," and Eric's unique vacation plans with hillbillies.
