Official Show NotesEdit

"On this episode we run through a tasting menu of Bradley Cooper's assholish behavior in the bad-boy chef movie, Burnt. Meanwhile, Elliott recites some lewd Dr. Seuss, Stuart drops some Friday the 13th science, and Dan suggests a new sort of nativity."

Movie SummaryEdit


­It was just the story of one chef trying to claw his way back to the top by being a total douche to everybody.
     —Elliott @05:46


Bradley Cooper, a former hot-dog bad boy chef, shucks his millionth oyster and decides it's time to walk to London. Upon arrival, he tracks down his old team and tries to corral them in order to capture his third Michelin star. Unfortunately, his character is boring and gets everything he wants without even trying.
