2005…a crazy time… Tom Cruise jumping on Oprah’s couch, the London Bombings, and comedies that made jokes that relied on sexism, racism, and ableism. This week we review Extras! We discuss the incredible celebrity cameos, the genius of Stephen Merchant, and the parts of the show that don’t age so well.
This week we bring back the dream team whose spark still lights the Lantern. That’s right, Marc and Tank of The Fool’s Lantern reunite with JJ and Brian to discuss all the games we missed in the last two years. We also discuss mobile gaming and things that make us… Game’gry. Enjoy!
The reviews are in and critics agree! “Uh…Jesus. Two wasted girls, a pervert, one guy trying to take control, and another guy reacting to everything.”-JJ This week, we discuss Kingsmen, curry, and vodka sodas. We also debate the optimal creamy white substance to use in curry We end the recording with a fast-paced, edge-of-your seat suspenseful pick to determine our film, food, and beverage for our next episode.
Listen as we discuss the next 4 episodes of Happy Endings! We also delve into Harry Potter houses, bad dates, and social anxiety!
We’re taking it easy this week. Instead of reviewing 22 episodes of a show, we watched a couple of ridiculous movies and drank a lot of vodka. We start off our discussion with a debate on whether or not the movie Southland Tales is a comedy and then we move in to our feature of the week, Makkhi! This Bollywood film is a classic romantic comedy in which a man is killed and reincarnated as a fly. Hijinks ensue!
Greetings lovers of food and film! The Food’s Lantern is a high flying, intellectual endeavor in which five people explore the worlds of home cooking and artistic cinema. In this introductory episode we unveil the simple and elegant process by which we select the featured film and dish of each episode. Will it be Schindler’s List and Chicken Scalloppinne? Tune in to Find out!
Shana and Angela get together to talk about episode one and two of Happy Endings! We also spend the last half of the episode discussing a show that is near and dear to both of our hearts, Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
Pathetic Spike! Drunk Giles! Famous Jonathan! The Fool’s Lantern discusses some of the high points for our favorite characters in season 4 as well as some of the low points (cough…Adam..cough). We also drink delicious foamy beer and our mental faculties degrade slowly throughout the show. That will show us for being such snobby intellectuals! (This is a reference you would understand if you watched season 4, so just do it already).
We’re back baby! In our first episode of the new year we discuss Gravity Falls, drink beer, and eat cake. Apologies to anyone with misophonia!
The crew continues their deep dive into the 90’s cult classic, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Listen as we talk about the intro of Faith, Wesley, and the long awaited exit of Angel. In this episode we are joined over Skype by Whedon expert and friend of the podcast, Angela.
