Missing the days when you could chat all night about your favorite movies, music, TV shows, games, theme parks and comics? So were we, so we decided to create The Give Me Five podcast. A place for us to discuss our favorite things and to learn about yours. Join Greg, Jimmy and Rob (and the occasional guest) as we talk about our favorite entertainment from the past and present.

This week we have a guest host sitting in for Omar. Yes, its our very own American Treasure, Scott! We review the brash DC spin-off The Peacemaker. Does James Gunn bring the fire and obscure music again OR is it a cynical rehash? Scream is out (technically Scream 4) and we get a fairly spoilerific review from Scott and Rob. They let us know about t…
 
Very weird episode tonight as there have been quite a few celebrity deaths (Betty White, Sidney Poitier, Bob Saget, Ronnie Spector) and a few of them MAY be linked to one of our hosts. While sorting that out, we chat about Book of Boba Fett and Sing 2. Boba Fett is a bit controversial online with people critiquing its tone, setting and other elemen…
 
We close out every year with lists of the top 5 best (and worst) pop culture / media of that year. It is a great way to remember the year that was, and to prepare for the year that will be. This year we cover: Top 5 Books Top 5 Albums Top 5 TV Top 5 Streaming Top 5 Give Me five Episode Titles Best Kids Movies Top 5 Movies Worst Side B Movies Holy S…
 
It's the end of the year and as we gear up for our end of the year Give Me Five Spectacular (best of 2021) we need to talk about all of the holiday releases. So if you haven't seen: Spider Man No Way Home Matrix Ressurrection Book of Boba Fett Chapter 1 Hawkeye (whole series) Then you might want to step away and come back later. Otherwise enjoy! (A…
 
A Christmas tradition! No, not Santa bringing treats, or Omar dressing as an elf so he can can convince his neighbors to give him free nog, its The 3rd annual international Christmas Tradition Triva quiz! (it also might be the last because its getting hard to make crap up) After the quiz, its been 2 years since Netflix's the Witcher graced our scre…
 
Fatman came out at the height of the 2020 pandemit s#!ts#0w and barely anyone noticed. Well recently Rob DID notice this Mel Gibson gruff Santa vs hitman tale (taking place during a gvt takeover of Santa's shop?) We had differing opinions of the film unrelated to the lead actor who is controversial but undeniably a great actor. But we did agree tha…
 
Rob is back from his cruise and may have started another French revolution in the Caribbean. Good thing he has plenty of knowledge from reading the series The Royal Institute of Magic by Victor Kloss. We also finally got a chance to delve into The Wheel of Time series on Amazon Prime. This high fantasy series has great acting, cool effects and an i…
 
It's a wrap on yet another year, and what better way to wrap 2021 than by gathering with friends and breaking down the many games and trends that kept us going this year? Sure there weren't many real Greats to speak of, but we looped through time and commiserated with online friends and saw glimpses of a couple genres at their best. So grab a glass…
 
This week we are throwing a music special your way. Our host that doesn't follow music as closely is on a cruise and I have the passwords, so we decided to talk about some of the best albums of the year. We also cover music we revisited this year and books, podcasts and documentaries about musicians, We also have 2 special guests! Our Patron and re…
 
Rob is out cruising. I'll let you decide what I mean. Whiole he is gone we take a deep dive into season 15 of Always Sunny in Philadelphia, a show that makes you feel like a terrible person when you watch it but you have a great time getting there. We also check out 8 Bit Christmas, a holiday throwback to the 80's featuring Nintendo, the infamous B…
 
Rob hated something this week, and we all know what that means! 20 extra minutes of the Give Me Five Podcast! Yay! This week we talk about the new Disney Plus Marvel / Christmas Show Hawkeye featuring Pizzadog! (and Hawkeye and Kate Bishop), a heartwarming, but sad Christmas tale on Netflix A Boy Called Christmas, and the Korean import demons-dragg…
 
Happy Thanksgiving from The Give Me Five Podcast! Ghostbusters: Afterlife has hit the theaters, and as it was Rob's most looked-forward-to movie of 2021, he rushed out to see it. Did it live up to expectations? Were there surprises? How was the humor? Is this the Ghostbusters from our childhood? Greg finished the book Storyteller by Dave Grohl. A f…
 
Don't be a bummer at a concert. Especially a concert all about love and enjoying life (and especially if you are likely lying) because we will tell a story about you to start the podcast. Then we will talk about the latest Marvel (MCU) film Eternals and how it fits in the larger scheme of the Marvel universe. Is the dynamic of the team and followin…
 
This week on BAD END, we're diving into Riot's new animated series Arcane, which feels like videogame nerd fanservice (not the sexual kind) as an act of benevolence. We're also talking about Forza Horizon 5's magnetic, often overwhelming extroversion, and the half-baked tactical/arcade crossover that is Halo Infinite Multiplayer (prepared for the f…
 
We on the Give Me Five Podcast are pretty ridiculous, so we rarely cover heavier more intense sci fi shows. But Foundation caught our attention, so we do our best to review the "unfilmable" show on Apple TV based on Isaac Asimov's novels. We also cover a film with Tom Hanks talking to non-living items, while stuck in a desolate wasteland and gettin…
 
The Buzzfeed list of underrated horror films strikes again this time leading us to what we thought was a lumberjack horror film, but instead was the tale of hoofed creatures terrorizing a small New England logging town. Starring Kevin Durand and Bianca Kajlich this dreary horror drama shows a sheriff dealing with immeasurable loss and the danger of…
 
Halloween week was busy, but we still managed to finish some books, and shows we were watching. Omar binged Shameless and brought his review. Does watching it for an extended period of time make you feel like a bad person? Both Rob and Omar take us into the world of Another Life, season 2, a sci-fi show described as part Alien and part Star Trek. S…
 
BAD END is back talking about videogames, and with about a month since our last time discussing things we played, we got a lot to cover! This week, we tear into Metroid Dread (despite digging it quite a bit). Not a bad game, but it loses a bit of Metroid's soul in exchange for some great action sequences. We're also discussing the 4th wall-breaking…
 
I guess blindly trusting a Buzz Feed article isn't always the best plan. But While looking for a new horror movie to watch on Halloween, I found this article: 10 Underrated Horror Movies . The movie listed several movies that were new to us, so we chose Harbinger Down. A fairly innocuous body horror film that takes place on a crab boat in the arcti…
 
The novel they said could never be correctly made into a film was made into a film for the second time. So is the latest incarnation of Dune worthy of it's source material? We had a Dune aficionado join us to explain the ins and outs of the Herbert created universe. Joe Hill's Locke and Key was a fun horror surprise on Netflix a few years ago, now …
 
This week Rob picked Ernest Scared Stupid. A silly little Halloween Movies featuring a troll with a sinus infection, a simplistic garbageman, a bunch of kids being turned to wood and a really smart dog. The movie was fun to watch and even our 8-year old correspondent joined in with his own thoughts. Stay tuned for our question of the week based on …
 
Omar's internet is still on the fritz so Rob and Greg bring the spooky. We discuss the extreme violence and controversy of Halloween Kills. The movie made some interesting decisions. Did they work? Rob checked out Under Wraps on Disney Plus but felt that it was definitely for a younger crowd. What makes a show look cheaply produced anyway? Speaking…
 
In today's episode we're joined by two special guests - game developers Greg Kythreotis of Shedworks (Sable) and Gareth Damian Martin (In Other Waters). We discuss the game development process, the act of pitching and marketing a game in a world where streaming and Steam reviews exist, the beauty and nostalgia of in-game architecture, and the secre…
 
Many years ago a little vampire movie came out and terrified young Greg. This movie gave him nightmares about "the vampire next door" Upon re-watch it turns out that Fright Night is actually a pretty decent horror movie. Other than the main character being a little bit of a pushy virgin who spies on his neighbor, but the effects are good and the st…
 
A little bit of horror, a little bit of comedy and a whole lot of comic chat. This week we have fun with the Muppets Haunted Mansion in which Gonzo the Great and Pepe the Prawn have to spend the night in THE haunted mansion. There's a new slasher and he's right behind you, in Netflix's There's Someone In Your House. Omar checked out the comedy / dr…
 
What is a CHUD? A Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller or Contamination Hazard Urban Disposal. Either way, in the 1984 film CHUD a bunch of genius businessmen decided that under the streets of New York would be the best place to leave a bunch of toxic waste. Hilarity and dead New Yorkers ensue. See how our ragtag band of heroes led by 2 actor…
 
Big movie releases this week. Venom Let There Be Carnage was released with it's special brand of violent humor. Does it's PG13 rating hurt the film? Are there any surprises at the end? (yes, and we do spoil it) The Sopranos prequel film The Many Saints of Newark was released and while it doesn't exactly tell the story we expected, we have some diff…
 
This week, we're diving into the sandy, Jbrekkie-soundtracked expanses of Sable, along with a Hades-like called Dandy Ace, the ending of Deathloop, and some board games. Which, by the way, are becoming more like videogames with every passing day. We're also covering some viewer questions about things like Far Cry, NPCs, desert island games, Twitch …
 
In the mid 80's while on his way to the Philippines to film Platoon, Charley Sheen made a pitstop in Arizona to film the Wraith. A film in which he plays an avenging angel in a futuristic car hunting down members of a street racing gang that killed him. While this movie was sold as a revenge flick, there are plenty of 80s shenanigans and quite a fe…
 
October is here and we can celebrate it with Midnight Mass, the brand new limited series on Netflix by Mike Flanagan (Haunting of Hill House / Haunting of Bly Manor) Another interesting take on horror, loss and zealotry. Squid Game is taking the world by storm and is set to become Netflix's most popular show world wide. Omar and Rob give us a break…
 
When we were young there were many movies that caught our imaginations. Star Wars made us all want to battle a galactic empire, Jurassic Park made us think that every bush the moved had a raptor hiding in it, Fast Times at Ridgemont High taught us about red bathing suits and The Last Starfighter made us belive that playing a video game could lead t…
 
Characters based on survivors from classic horror movies being hunted down by yet another killer. Watching them work together to solve the mystery of who is hunting them yet again. That is the background of Grady Hendrix's novel Final Girl Support Group. But how good is the book? A movie that took a long time to reach viewers, Boss Level, was it wo…
 
Is there an echo in here? This week we're digging into the time loopy antics of Deathloop, and not the time loopy antics of 12 Minutes, which we discussed last week. We're also talking about the 20-year cultural cycle and whether or not it applies to games. We've also got the war re-enactment-esque Hell Let Loose, and a bit of organizational feng s…
 
What started as a conversation about a bad sexploitation film ends with a philosophical discussion about how many people (and cans of Red Bull) it would take to repopulate the planet. Phoenix the Warrior is a movie full of big hair, big guns, big personalities, and a serious lack of wardrobe. Alternatively known as She-Wolves of the Wasteland, a po…
 
We are back with episode 201 and a brand new season! Comedian Norm Macdonald passed away this week so we talk about his influence and some of his more interesting appearances. We were gone for a few weeks so we jump right in and cover Shang Chi, the Marvel movie that none of us saw coming, Kate, the new Netflix hitwoman action film, and James Wan's…
 
200 Episodes of the Give Me Five Podcast! To celebrate we watch a cult classic favorite, Escape From New York. We are also inviting Derek Rook of Rough House Publishing to join us as he introduced Greg to the movie, and Greg then introduced Omar to the movie. We talk about the film, John Carpenter, James Cameron, special effects, and we also take a…
 
It's been 200 episodes, and in honor of that feat, we are going back to episode one and talking about a few of our favorite things. It is also an opportunity to learn a little more about our newest host, Omar. So in honor of episode 200 we will talk about Oliver Stone's The Doors movie and how it led Omar to a life of music. Rob will discuss The Pr…
 
This week we've got our gamer plates full, but we're spending most of it airing out our grievances with 12 Minutes - a game so clunky (and occasionally desperate) that we can't help but laugh a bit at its expense. We're also talking about the brilliant Psychonauts 2, our tangled-up issues with Boyfriend Dungeon, and the spreadsheet-like antics of H…
 
This episode is brought to you by the "For Baby Wilson 1978 Les Paul Auction" help support Baby Wilson and maybe win a killer guitar in the process. https://rafflecreator.com/pages/51291/for-baby-wilson Closing out the Summer of 87 we ran into yet another sequel. If Jaws 4, Superman 4 and Revenge of the Nerds 2 wasn't bad enough, we also got House …
 
We start off this episode on a somber note, a fundraising raffle for a musician that lost his life. The money from this raffle will help his wife and unborn child. The giveaway as told to us by Zak is "a beautiful vintage 1978 Gibson Les Paul Pro with P90s. I toured all around the world with this guitar in both Alpha Rev and LīVE, I played this gui…
 
The movie that took the world by storm in 1987, and had all of us cringing while our mom's talked about Patrick Swayze's butt. Yes, its Dirty Dancing, and oddly enough NONE of the 3 hosts had seen this movie. Partially because it was marketed towards women and 14 year old girls, and partially because it came out during the same summer as Predator, …
 
This week 2 of the hosts broke into the liquor cabinet and the other one is apologizing on their behalf. We did hold it together enough to talk about the documentary Woodstock 99: Peace Love and Rage, Ryan Reynolds video game flick Free Guy, Val (about Val Kilmer) and a Netflix "old guys doing karate" movie Paper Tigers. Next week on Side B the Sum…
 
Let me guess, you forgot the Fat Boys existed? We did too. But when we continued down our path of the Summer of 87, we saw that Disorderlies was up next and we let out a collective "oh! I remember them!" So check out our review of Disorderlies, a brief history of the Fat Boys, and yet another trip to Florida in the 80s. Then stay tuned for our ques…
 
What a great and interesting week for movies, comics, music and nostalgia! And those are the things we do best. A surprise Guns N Roses song is released to mixed reviews. The Suicide Squad is back under the watchful, disturbed eye of James Gunn, and What If? arrives on Disney+ to show other alternate stories in the Marvel Universe. All that and som…
 
Kyle's slammed with deadlines, and this week's BAD END features writer/art director/Superculture Network member Yussef Cole. We're discussing Halo Reach and the lost serenity of early Halo, as well as the so-good-it's-meh appeal of Death's Door. Then we're rambling about crit (again) with new Cyberpunk twin-stick-shooter The Ascent, and talking a b…
 
When one decides to cover the movies of the summer of 1987, it is probably wise to look at the entire summer. After breezing past Predator, Robocop and Adventures in Babysitting, you will land on things like Care Bears Adventures in Wonderland, which is neither good or all that interesting at all. BUT we took that Care Bear stare right to the groin…
 
One of our hosts had some business to attend to (he got kicked by a mule, or did he?) So, we talk about Dwayne Johnson's new Disney movie, The Jungle Cruise, a new show on Disney Plus Behind the Attractions, and the book Disciple of War by Michael G Manning. But we also talk a little bit of wrestling with the potential reappearance of CM Punk in AE…
 
After 2 weeks of subpar episode 4's we land on the 56th (or something) James Bond movie, the Living Daylights. We are going back to the cold war as Timothy Dalton's bond fights the guy from Mitchell (only MST3K fans will get that one) How does this Bond film hold up? We discuss gadgets, girls, and villains this week. (and Mujahadeen!) Then stay tun…
 
Vampires on a plane! A classic hotel that became more famous as time moved on and scandals piled up. And a re-imagining of a classic 80s cartoon that has caused quite a few arguments online. This week we cover a book about a famous hotel that has spawned movies, songs, tv shows and books, but has also been the scene of famous deaths and meltdowns, …
 
This week's episode is all about videogames' artsy, cool, well-dressed younger sibling: creative technology. We're joined by Nicole He, one of the finest in the space today, whose works include a mind-reading Tinder-swipebot, a voice-activated game that parodies CSI "zoom and enhance" sequences, and an AI that interviewed Billie Eilish for Vogue. W…
