  1. I hate how Disney channel declined the way it did. The truly good shows pretty much ended by the time High School Musical showed up.


  2. Boy Meets World! Haha love the references all over this episode. It was weird to not have Maria and Mike (the M&M’s) but you guys were tons of fun. That was an awesomely nerdy podcast.


    1. Oh, and Boy Meets World isn’t my answer to the question, just a callout. The movie I hate is Inglorious Basterds (and most Quentin movies for that matter).


  3. I know I’ll get a lot of hate for this, but I don’t get why Dark Knight got the universal acclaim that it did. It really isn’t that good.


  4. I like that Jon was pretty fair with the Pixar movies. He’s obviously a huge fan, but he knows when to call them out (I’m saying this based on the stuff he wrote for Good Dinosaur last week). For the question of the week, I have to admit I absolutely hated Mad Max. I get what it was trying to do, but I was honestly just bored.


  5. PODCAST MVP! I vote Kayla for being so comfortable with the guys this fast. I know she sort of did a podcast already, but still! She’s great, especially with those buttons.


  6. Jon, is your book only out on kindle or other ebooks? Also a movie I hated was American Sniper. I never got the appeal of a guy killing people in real life, but then made more sympathetic for entertainment purposes.


  7. When it comes to acclaimed movies that I hate, it’s between The Graduate and The Matrix for me. But, in more serious news, I am very disappointed with Jon for not noticing the potential Mulaney reference towards the end of the podcast when he was talking about
    Dean Cain.

    (Is that Dean Cain?)


  8. Love the podcast guys! I couldn’t stand American Sniper or understand the hype around it. So lame. Also, Jon your book is AMAZING. Read the whole thing in one night.
