Episode 128: Franco Roast, "Artificial Intelligence," and Comfort Animals

A short episode this week! Wow! We start with some very brief Senior Discount announcements hyping two upcoming shows. Chuck, Brad, and guest Abe Correia talk about the recent Comedy Central Roast of James Franco. Following that, Chuck talks about a recently-released script for a 2002 Batman/Superman script that was never made. The three geeks agree to read the script and offer notes.
Chuck then rehashes the movie "AI: Artificial Intelligence," a film neither Brad nor Abe has seen recently. Chuck talks about the creepiness and sadness of the movie and Abe and Brad almost cry. Brad offers a recent development from his work life and the pals talk about "comfort animals" and their place in modern society.
Chuck segues beautifully into the second appearance of his new segment "Shut the Fuck Up," and people's outrage over a line from the song "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke. How offensive IS the word "bitch?"
This episode closes with Chuck reading, verbatim, an online personal ad that Brad found on an online dating site. Oh dear.

There are no Web Couliers this week.
