The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are looking at the annuls of goofy television this week as they combine two blowhard TV personas to make a new pitch. The guys watch and discuss 2016's "Mindhorn" from Netflix and 2002's unexpected spy thriller "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind," where the host of "the Gong Show" was really a CIA hitman.

Episode 335 includes:
-R.I.P. Meat Loaf and Louie Anderson and "sexy M&Ms."
-No more dwarves in "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves"? About time.
-"Voyagers" and "the Humans" are two films to skip.
-"Happily" is a worthwhile exercise that almost makes it to the end.
-Switch the Pitch -- "Mindhorn" / "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind"
-The guys discuss the dry British comedy "Mindhorn" from the team behind "The Mighty Boosh," and more so discuss George Clooney's directorial debut, the Charlie Kaufman-penned "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind." Then they combine elements of both to make a brand-new pitch.
