Hopefully I will be more entertained by this episode of The Comedy Button than I was by that lame survey!

Is Scott Bromley some kind of fucking Rain Man for shitty 80s pop culture? I'm an 80s kid too, roughly the same age as most of the people on this podcast, and yet the shit that Bromley retains in his memory that he can draw at the drop of a dime puts me to shame. I must have seen The Great Outdoors a dozen times as a kid and I remember the raccoon scenes fondly, but I had to look up a video to be reminded of the "va va va voom" song, and Scott just pulled it out of his ass like he sits at home and watches that shit on repeat daily.

Those emails were pretty shitty.

@LiQuid I always thought that Scott was some kind of savant with random 80's pop culture. Half of the stuff he and Brian say I've never heard of.

Tranquilizers aren't like movies where you shoot them and they instantly fall asleep. If you shoot a tiger it could take a long time for it to fall asleep and it could have killed someone by then.

Oh come on LiQuid, I was born in '93 and understand 95% of the references and stories.

It's not a matter of understanding them. It's a matter of being able to pull them from memory and drop them into everyday conversation at the drop of a dime.

It's an amazing ability, and I'm kinda like that sometimes. I have to curb it as it drives people mad.

Yeah...his memory is just odd and impressive especially for how esoteric some of this stuff is.

I guess I can kind of relate myself in away, as I'm like him when it comes to films, but that's only in that specific medium, he can pull crap out of commercials, toys, films, etc.. all from the 80s.


I almost picture Scott being like Bobby Hill in that one King of the Hill episode where he's watching a lot of TV and cramming on pop culture magazines to prepare for a school competition.

I think it's a Token School Fat Kid thing. We just absorb pop culture to try have an in to the cliques.

Is it just me, or was this episode kind of a snoozer?

I cracked a smile maybe twice during the show. No laugh out loud moments.

How you can like this so little but think the Big Bang Theory is hilarious boggles my mind.

Maybe you weren't in a great mood when you listened to it? When I listen to this podcast (and the debriefings), I'm not always looking for that big laugh. I've got a near constant smile on my face just from the group's demeanor and tone of conversation. So yea, this was pretty much a non-stop laugh fest.

So glad your standards are so low. Also, you're a goddamn liar.

No, not really. I laughed a few times out loud, but was smiling through most of it. As you know, I don't think the Big Bang Theory is that funny. However, recently my boss has been putting it on the tv when I'm working, so I'm blowing off some steam by trolling you (Jinpei). :D
