218 – The Saints

What do Val Kilmer, Roger Moore and Adam Rayner have in common? They’ve all played Simon Templar aka ‘The Saint’! On this week’s very special episode, we’re going to focus on the 1997 feature film and the 2017 made for TV movie.

Do you like to steal from the rich and give to the poor? Maybe you like to put on wacky disguises, in order to foil your enemies? If either of those are true, then you’ll want to download this one!

Pop in those ear buds and load this new episode of ’40 Going On 14′. All hail ‘The Saint’!

217 – Archie Andrews to Riverdale

Archie Andrews, where are you?

For the past 75 years, a red headed all American boy, Archie Andrews, has barely aged and infiltrated the homes of millions of people. Am I referring to David Caruso? Nope. It’s time for the Archie show!

Mike, Joel and Josh are headed to Riverdale and things are about to get weird. This is not the Archie you remember.

If you’ve ever picked up an Archie comic, in your life, then this is one episode you don’t want to miss!

217 – Movie Soundtracks

What makes a movie better? Popcorn? 3D, Sexy Michael Caine? Perhaps it’s the soundtrack? That’s right, this week, we’re talking about the foundation of any good film.

Each of the guys has picked 2 of their favorite soundtracks and we’re going to dismantle them one by one. Which cuts make the cut? You’ll have to listen to find out!

It’s movie music mania on this week’s ’40 going On 14′!

215 – Western Comedies

What do you get when you cross a western with a comedy? A Womedy? A Cestern? Nope. You get this weeks show!

We thought about what movie could compare to the classic Blazing Saddles and it really wasn’t that much of a challenge. Who could match up to the off-the-wall style of Mel Brooks? Seth MacFarlane, that’s who!

The boys from ’40 Going On 14′ and having a showdown between ‘Blazing Saddles’ and ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’. They’re coming out guns drawn and you’ll have to listen, to see who’s left standing. From the infamous “campfire scene” to the Easter eggs that Seth MacFarlane has hidden through his movie, we look at the irreverent and often times gross out humor of two comedy legends!

It’s westward ho, as it’s almost high noon! Giddy up!

214 – Monster Squad vs Stranger Things

Why is it that kids are always the ones that have to save the world? It seems to be a trend in TV and film, for decades. This week, we’re watching as it all happens again!

We’re hoping on our Huffy’s and taking a ride through ‘The Monster Squad’ (1987) and ‘Stranger Things: Season 2’. (Secretly, we just wanted a reason to watch ‘Stranger Things’.)

This episode goes from 8 to 11 to Uncle Rico, as it’s time to flip the Upside Down, right side up!

213 – Invasion Of The Body Snatchers

Have you ever thought someone wasn’t acting quite like themselves? Perhaps you thought they were from another planet? Maybe they were!

This week, on our last gasp for OctoBoo, we’re joined by Will from The Creepercast. We’re chatting it up about the 1978 ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ and 2007’s ‘The Invasion’.

It’s a fantastic way to end the Halloween season and yes…. we talk about that friggin’ dog! Yikes!

212 – Vampire Comedy

What do you get when you cross a vampire movie, with a comedy? A funny movie, that sucks? We shall see.

This week we’re watching ‘Once Bitten’ and ‘What We Do In Shadows’, two different takes on the horror comedy. Will they leave a mark or will they just bite?

The undead are calling, as it’s time to sink your teeth into the new episode of ’40 Going On 14′!

211 – Friday The 13th

It’s time to go camping! Yup, despite being the middle of October, we’re going out to pitch a tent!

With our hockey masks in tow, we’re going to spend some time with our favorite unstoppable killing machine buddy, Jason Voorhees. Starting in 1980 and then hoping into the time machine to fast forward to 2009. All the campers will die.

How will these two films match up? You’ll have to take a trip to Crystal Lake to find out!

210 – IT

What’s that, Georgie? You’re looking for your little toy boat? Well, We’ve got it right here. You can find it in this episode of ’40 Going On 14′!

That’s right, this is ‘It’ folks! The episode you’ve been waiting for. We’re going to take a trip down into the sewers with Pennywise the Dancing Clown, as we discuss his different incarnations.

Put on your raincoat, because you’re going to float soon, too.

209 – Frankensteins

We all know the story. A crack of lightning, a madman and a creature brought back to life. However, you may not know these takes on this classic tale. What am I referring to? Why, Frankenstein’s monster, of course!

For this first episode of OctoBoo, we’re taking on ‘Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein’ and ‘Victor Frankenstein’. Two variations on the monster’s origin story.

Gather your spare parts and a little electricity and let’s bring back the dead!

208 – Freaky Fridays

Have you ever wanted to switch bodies with someone? Even if it was just for a day? If I learned anything at all this week, it’s that a set of fortune cookies or a simple wish, can make this happen!

That’s right, kids, we’re doing a ‘Freaky Friday’ show! The lads from ’40 Going On 14′ are not swapping their bodies, but they are swapping their thoughts on the original film and the latter remake.

As SubTember comes to a close, we have one final SECRET co-host joining us and I promise, you won’t be disappointed! Cue the ‘Benny Hill’ theme!

207 – Death Races

How many points is it to hit one of the hosts of ’40 Going On 14′? You may be asking what I mean, but if you listen to this weeks episode…. you’ll find out!

We’re all at the starting line and ready to go. It’s the third week in SubTember, as Grant from Achor.FM, joins us to talk about ‘Death Race’! We’re putting the pedal to the metal, as we cruise through the original and the “soft” reboot. Will they cross the finish line?

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!

206 – Wonder Woman

Quick! Spin around, as your clothes fly off! It’s time to go and save the world, again.

You guessed it, we’re doing the ‘Wonder Woman’ show! Diana Prince is in the house and ready to lasso the truth out of the boys. What did they think about the original series and what are their thoughts on the recent film?

Hop into the invisible jet and strap in for part two of SubTember, as we welcome Jeffery Nau of ‘The History of Bad Ideas’ podcast! Did anyone remember to pack my Wonder Woman Underoos?

205 – Radio

Radio has been a part of our lives, for decades. Ever since we were growing up, all of us listened to it and had our favorite stations. For the first week in SubTember, we’re turning the dial on the wayback machine and talking about the radio!

Joining us for this first week, is our old friend, Mark. We’ll be discussing all things FM and AM, since we were angst filled youths, up until today, as angst filled adults.

Were does that leave us, with today’s thousands of choices for music and talk? You’ll have to tune in, to find out!

204 – The Magnificent Seven

How many hired guns does it take to get a town back from a brooding bad guy? Let me count the ways: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…. ‘The Magnificent Seven’!

Saddle up, kids! We’re riding our way through a gun toting shoot em’ up, as we discuss the original 1960 classic and the 2016 remake.

How were they? I only have one answer. You had me at Charles Bronson.

203 – Trainspotting

Can we make a movie about drug abuse and death funny? Well, somehow with this episode, we answer that question!

Join Spud, Sick Boy, Begbie and Renton, as they train spot their way through 20 years of a difficult life.

By the end of this show, maybe you’ll be able to answer the question: “Which character are you?” OY!

202 – The Snack Food Show

Well, lunch was a couple of hours ago and dinner is still a ways off. What should I do? SNACKS! That’s right, kids, we’re doing a show all about those in between little morsels of happiness.

Sweet to Savory. New choices and old. We are picking up a little bit of everything for this weeks show, while trying to avoid reading the nutritional contents on the side of the packaging.

Our belts may need to be loosened a bit after this show. It’s time for a snack!

201 – New Who

What’s that noise? It’s the TARDIS dematerializing again! However, this time the boys from ’40 Going On 14′ are joining the new era of Doctors on the second half of this 2 part ‘Doctor Who’ spectacular!

While none of us may ever be a companion in real life, for the second half of this 2 part event, we’re going to be as close as we’ll ever get. Part 2 contains the 9th through 13th Doctors and beyond. We’re also taking on more pinnacle episodes, the history of the series reboot, along with the new villains and new companions!
