Commentary - E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial

Adam was terrified of E.T. as a child. Matthew was indifferent. As adults they're both still bothered, but maybe also a little more appreciative of what this Spielberg classic is going for. Along the way we fixate on just how gnarly E.T.'s physiology is, theorize what the tiny raisin man is really up to, become enraged about yard pizza, make fun of an absent dad character, explain the 80s to each other, and turn against the protagonist! So it's pretty much a normal day for us.

Next month's commentary will debut the day before Halloween, so if you've got anything spooky you'd like us to talk over, feel free to hit us up!

As always, we'd like to thank Laura Cooper of the webcomic XP for our show's art,  Bensound.com for our outro music, and you the listener for sticking with us! If you like what you hear, consider subscribing and rating on iTunes, sharing our sampler, or becoming a TWAIkNtributor!

Episode 55 - Croatoan

Last week's time management discussion must not have been taken to heart, as The Worst Adults ran out of time before even getting around to this week's designated topic. Instead, they just hang like buds and discuss the mystery of the Roanoke Colony. Along the way, they tackle a J.J. Abrams-style history mystery, prevent Judgement Day through the power of 90s sitcoms, pick their patronai, shoot Voldemort into space, do Larry the Cable Guy impressions, write some checks, and justify their lack of restraint!

Talking Points:

  • Explain yourselves! (00:00)
  • The Lost Colony! (05:51)
  • Wikipedia Out Loud! (07:35)
  • J.K. Rowling: Time-Traveling Philanthropist! (09:55)
  • 3rd Rock from the Sun explained! (13:44)
  • Wizards in space! (18:45)
  • Adam's patronus! (22:33)
  • Checks! (23:54)
  • Matthew's patronus! (29:52)
  • The episode writes itself! (35:43)
  • Larry the Cable Guy wrecks Skype! (37:45)
  • Closing thoughts! (40:25)

As always we'd like to thank show artist Laura Cooper of XPwebcomic.com, Bensound.com, J.K. Rowling, and you the listener! If you like us, share our sampler, support us on Patreon, and hit us up on the Internet!

Fun Fact: We recorded this on Monday night; on Wednesday night American Horror Story aired the first episode of its Roanoke-based season... the theme of which they DID NOT REVEAL UNTIL AIRING... Are we psychic? Are we cursed? Should AHS take us on as staff writers? YOU be the judge! (Also, yes to all, probably.)

Episode 54 - Island Time Management

This week Matthew sees around the curvature of the Earth into the future to determine Adam didn’t do his homework and the boys sit down to talk about how to better manage their time.
