Part 1 of IT’S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT (AND I WANT WINE)

Do our hosts find any parallels between a sparkling red irreverently dubbed “The Brat” and a comedy where all the character names are euphemisms for genitalia? Will Jamie untangle wine’s capitalist, imperialist nomenclature, or just yell about it on mic? Can Scott really keep his promise of a “No Bummers” miniseries about apocalyptic scenarios, or is discussing total thermonuclear annihilation asking too much? All that plus Wife Takes, Bad Reviews, and lots of puerile giggling at “President Merkin Muffley” await your eager ears, Dimitri.

  • DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB (1964) is directed by Stanley Kubrick and stars Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, and Sterling Hayden. As of this episode’s release it is available to stream on HBO Max and wherever you rent your VOD movies. Also that Criterion Blu-ray is sick.
