Baconsale Episode 102: Building a Mystery Science Theater

In the not too distant future, after you press play, you’ll hear Baconsale discussing Mystery Science Theater 3000. Huzzah! If you’ve never seen MST3K, don’t worry, we’re here to introduce you to the world of Joel (Robinson), Mike, the ‘Bots and the cheesy movies they watch. Joel (Hilton) is a big fan of the series, and Kent and Jacob are here to make sure Joel doesn’t get to carried away with his favorite television series.

BaconBit: The Fate of the Furious Review

Our special guest Mark is back and he’s revving to talk about The Fate of the Furious, the eighth (YES! 8th!) film in the Fast and the Furious franchise. Joel and Jacob do their best to contain Mark’s excitement (because they haven’t seen the film), whereas Kent just enables him.

Join us as we forget all the characters’ names and do our best to make sense of this stupidly entertaining movie.

Baconsale Episode 101: Documentary Starter Kit

And here we have Baconsale in its natural habitat: talking about movies. Not just any movies, though. They seem to be discussing documentaries. Kent, the critic of this species, has joined with Joel, the dominant comedian, to create a list of 10 non-fiction films that will help people understand that the word “documentary” does not necessarily mean that the movie will be boring or dry. In fact, they seem to have piqued the interest of a nearby creature named Jacob – a reluctant observer.

Let’s listen and see what happens.

Baconsale Episode 100: Our 100th Episode!

Believe it or not, Baconsale has officially made 100 episodes! We’re celebrating this milestone by inviting three people onto the show (Jeff, Sam & Teri) who claim to listen to our podcast. And Jacob has created a semi-comprehensible pop culture quiz to pit these contestants against each other and, eventually, against Joel and Kent, a.k.a. “Team JK.” Excitement! Confusion! Drama! Awkward silences! Trash talk! All that and more are on this, the 100th episode of Baconsale!

Baconsale Episode 99: The Best 90s Alternative Band (Tournament Finals)

Do you have the time to listen to us whine about nothing and everything about 90s bands? Well, Hold My Hand because we’re going to debate All the Small Things (and some Little Things) about some of your favorite alternative music artists once again in our March Madness-style tournament. In fact, it’s time to end this Beautiful Disaster (*gasp* Say It Ain’t So!), give our picks one Last Kiss and make a Precious Declaration of the ultimate winner of our bracket Today. But we won’t really know how we did, ‘Til I Hear It from You in the comments.

Don’t Speak, just press play. And Thank U for listening!

BaconBit: Power Rangers Review

It’s Morphin’ time!. . .for Kent. Jacob and Joel didn’t really watch the Power Rangers TV show. But they’re ready to discuss the 2017 cash grab– er, reboot. Kent geeks out a bit and shows his true fandom, while the other two try and comprehend what a Zord is.

Is this movie a thrill ride for 90s fans? Or is it another desperate to exploit our wallets and our childhood? Press play and find out.

And, as always, the first 16 minutes are spoiler-free.

Baconsale Episode 98: Ranking Disney Princesses

Look at these princesses, aren’t they all neat? Wouldn’t you think our collection’s complete? In fact, we’re going to rank a bunch of animated female protagonists (and deuteragonists) who aren’t in the official Disney princess line. No, we’re not just basing these rankings on their looks — after all, we aren’t complete chauvinists — but attractiveness is one of the criteria on our rating matrix. We use cold hard facts, mathematic formulas and, yes, our subjective opinions to determine which of these cartoon characters are tier 1, which are tier 2 and which are tier 3.

And if you don’t agree with our ratings, please remember that no matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true. Unless your wish is to change Kent’s mind. That never happens.

BaconBit: Beauty & the Beast Review

Be our guest and listen to our review of the 2017 live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Kent tagged along on Joel’s date with his wife to see the movie — or Joel’s wife ended up using Jacob’s ticket, depending on your perspective — and we are ready to give our spoiler-free and spoiler-full review of the latest Disney cash grab.

Is Emma Watson the Belle of the ball? Did we shudder at the Beast’s performance? Does anyone bite like Gaston? Press play and find out!

Baconsale Episode 97: Tournament of 90s Alternative Bands

Come As You Are and listen to Baconsale’s battle of 90s alternative bands. And while some of you may be saying Good Riddance to the grunge era, Kent, Joel and Jacob have been Desperately Wanting to do this for a while. We had So Much to Say, which is why this episode runs Everlong. And we don’t mean to give you the Run-Around, but we don’t go The Distance this episode. This is only part one Round Here. It’ll be One Week or so before we finish the tournament. We had Good Intentions, but we had to let it Linger.

So Come Out and (press) Play on this latest episode of Baconsale!
