While the "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are wrapping up and revising another writing project for a producer, give a listen to Ben's other podcast he records regularly with his brother George -- "Saturday Night Jive." In honor of Ben Affleck's five-timers club hosting Saturday Night Live, the guys watch the notorious bomb from 2003, "Gigli." It's just as bad as you've heard and maybe worse, accompanied by a tonally awful piano score. Come for the embarrassing monologues about J.Lo's vagina, stay for the anaysis of every wrong-headed decision in this flick.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are back and extra restful from the time off. There's a lot of news items to cover and several good to great movies as well, making this a bountiful and thankful podcast. The guys record after dark and get a little punchy, a little more absurd, and a little more provocative. If you've ever wondered more about the difference between Allison Mack and Alex Mack and the usefulness of turning into a puddle of liquid metal, then your day has come.
Available on iTunes.
Episode 208 includes:
-Groomers of the Week: Channel Awesome, Allison Mack, and Jon K.
-Stan Lee's blood stolen, which leads to a bizarre KISS anecdote that Ben thinks is the most amazingly metal thing ever.
-R.I.P. Isao Takahata, Milos Forman, Art Bell.
-John Krasinski's horror hit "A Quiet Place" is a simple idea brilliantly executed.
-The sex comedy "Blockers" is charmingly progressive and quite funny.
-"Rampage" is a big, dumb monster movie that works well at being a big, dumb monster movie.
-This Week's Pitch -- None!

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are wrapping up another writing project so in the meantime give a listen to Ben and George's podcast, "Saturday Night Jive" where they perform deep dives analyzing interesting and or horrible movies starring SNL alums. The Tim Allen family vehicle "The Santa Clause" is a lot stranger and horrifying than you may recall. George and Ben discuss the mechanics, implications, and the Disney Snow Paws series to boot.
Also available on iTunes.
