Ep:1 Point Break

Point Break

We have launched! The first episode is finally here!

Point Break, the classic surfer/cops and robbers film, is the first movie that we decided to recast.  Starring, Keanu Reeves, Patrick Swayze, Lori Petty, and Gary Busey, this 90’s classic is one we felt is right in our wheelhouse and is bound to generate some interesting debate.

There are some fun moments in this episode, and it does a good job representing what who we are and what the recasting game is all about. There are some surprises along the way, but mostly it’s just the 90’s cheese celebration you imagine it will be.

I would definitely suggest listening to the Episode Zero before jumping in. However, if you decide to skip it, then here are the bullet points:

  • The sound sucks in some of the early episodes. It’s since been fixed, but we really liked the content, so we kept them.
  • I try to go a little too podcast-y out of the gate. I drop the time-stamp thing a few episodes in. (Also, there is a joke that I tried that is so bad, I will send $5 on PayPal to the first person who can tell me which one I’m talking about).
  • Listener discretion is advised. Bombs are flying all over the place.

Getting back to this episode, you can feel free to watch the movie before you listen to the pod, but it’s definitely not necessary. As is our M.O., we cover the plot in excruciating(ly fun!) detail. If it’s been awhile since you’ve seen the movie and you want to brush up, head on over to the IMDB link below and get reacquainted with the plot and cast. Be sure to leave a comment below and tell us how wrong we are (although you’d be wrong about us being wrong).

    Hi guys! I love listening to the two of you! Anyway, I just thought I would throw out there that you TOTALLY missed your recast of Tyler from Point Break. We all know it should have been Demi Moore!

    Good call, it didn’t even cross my mind. I think the One Crazy Summer Demi would be a good fit.
