“Starship Troopers” was a moderately successful action cult classic from the late 90s. “Roughnecks”, the animated spin-off TV series, encapsulated everything that could go wrong with, well, anything. Production snafus, insane scheduling choices and animation that would make the Atari guys cringe culminated in this sci-fi disaster. All of this was plenty of material for Ian, John and special guest Andy Kauff to dig into, arguably, the most troublesome TV show examined so far on this podcast.
Don reveals his plans to write a tell-all memoir while Ernie reveals his new list best of sellers to finally top that Oprah hurdle.
The show so full of energy and originality it needed two exclamation points, the Rob Schneider vehicle “!Rob!” premiered in 2012 to great ratings and horrendous critical notices. The fact that the network noted both of these and decided to cancel it after 8 episodes is one of the great justices in TV history. Ian, John and special guest Preston Lee watched this turd so you don’t have to and this podcast emerged like a phoenix from the wreckage.
