Official Show Notes[]

"With audiences primed to be disappointed by a new Hercules movie in theaters, why not be like the Peaches and be disappointed by The Legend of Hercules in the comfort of your own home. Meanwhile Elliott tells us the secrets of the ancient Greek hamburger, Dan has uncanny recall for old Disney cartoons, and Stuart tells sad tales of British totty."

Quotes[]

  • ­The movie is crazy at the top, then it's very dull, and then as soon as Hercules admits his demigodhood it becomes crazy again. Because he is constantly just whipping guys with shit, and killing tons of people.
