Lebeau’s Le Show: Episode 010: Daffy and Lebeau’s Christmas Spectacular


Christmas Episode Cover

Today, believe it or not, is Christmas Eve.  December just flew by, didn’t it?  Doesn’t it always?  I had hoped to have this episode posted back when we were still running the Christmas Movie Bracket Game.  But you know how things get leading up to the holidays.  If you don’t, well, they get crazy.  So after several delays, it is my pleasure to present Daffy and my Christmas episode in which we discus our favorite Christmas music, movies and TV specials.

I don’t know that I can do this episode justice.  It gets weird fast.  Hope you like it.

Lebeau’s Le Show: Episode 009 – He’s Chevy Chase and We’re Not


Episode 009

We’re dedicating an entire show to the first breakout star of Saturday Night Live, Chevy Chase.  Why?  I really don’t know.  It seemed like a good idea at the time.  We cover all three of Chase’s good movies and at least a third of his terrible ones.  This episode has it all; cute dogs, little people and Princess Leia in her underwear.  Daffy and I discuss why Billy Murray and Chevy Chase aren’t friends and why Chase probably won’t be appearing in any Marvel movies any time soon.  Find out why Chase isn’t in Animal House and why Daffy believes the movie is over-rated anyway.  We also name at least a handful of the many, many people Chase has offended over the years.  It’s a podcast and a dessert topping!

Lebeau’s Le Show: Episode 008 – Time Travel


Time Travel

A while back Daffy and I were approached by Dan of Annie and Danny’s FastPass Podcast to do a show on time travel movies.  Since coming up with topics is hard, Daffy and I decided to steal Dan’s idea  take him up on his offer.  We were finally able to master time enough to line up all three of our schedules to talk time travel.  So Dan becomes our first-ever guest star here on Le Show.

But it wasn’t just Dan joining us this time.  We also took feedback from the wonderful readers here at Le Blog.  About a week before we recorded, I posted a survey asking you guys what you wanted to hear about in a time travel show.  The response was overwhelming.  So we’ll probably continue to seek your input for future podcasts.  For this episode, we had you guys rank eight time travel comedies and eight action/adventure movies.

We’re obviously going to cover the classics like Back to the Future and The Terminator.  But Daffy dives deep with some scholarly research.  We also look at the indie comedy, Safety Not Guaranteed and everyone wishes they had found the time to watch Primer.  Special guest time travel expert Dan disses Star Trek and praise Jean-Claude Van Damme.  And we all talk about what we would do if we could travel through time.

Lebeau’s Le Show: Episode 007 – The Best of Bond


Episode 007 Cover

When I was editing the previous podcast, I got very excited because I realized that our next episode would be our seventh Le Show.  As a James Bond fan, I knew what the topic for episode 007 had to be.  I wasn’t even finished editing episode 6 when I e-mailed Daffy with my idea.  If his response was less enthusiastic than mine, I didn’t care.  I had a pun topic and dammit I was going to use it come hell or high water.

As the name suggests, Daffy and I discus the best (and worst) of the James Bond franchise.  Fifty plus years and 23 official films is a lot to cover, so this is an extra-sized episode.  I also put a little extra polish on this one.  You’ll know what I’m talking about when you listen.  Hopefully these special touches serve as an enhancement rather than a distraction.  If nothing else, it should help break up the sound of two guys droning on and cracking up over silly things.

With that said, there’s all the silliness you have come to expect from Daffy and me.  We reimagine a classic Bond villain as a member of the cast of Friends, Daffy makes me queasy by talking about one of the Golden Girls as a Bond babe and poor Diana Rigg will never wear that catsuit again.  Daffy and I pick our favorite Bond movie from each of the six actors to play the role.  We also discus our favorite Bond villain, Bond girl and Bond song.  Each of us names our least favorite Bond movie and finally selects our favorite of the six Bonds.

Lebeau’s Le Show: Episode 006 – Pop Culture References


Episode 006 Cover Image

 

Everyone makes pop culture references in one way or another every day.  Sometimes, we use an expression or a phrase without even knowing its origins.  Other times, we’re specifically referencing one of our favorite movies or TV shows.  Depending on how well your reference matches your audience, pop culture references can provide a great form of short hand.  They convey complex information in just a few words.  Or they miss their mark entirely and everyone thinks you’re weird.

This week, Daffy and I discuss the power of pop culture references both common and obscure.  Of course we hit the essentials like Caddyshack and Star Wars.  Daffy provides a few musical cues that frankly you just have to hear.  I talk about my co-workers and their weirdly narrow backgrounds in pop culture.  Hopefully none of them are listening.  Daffy talks about how he alienated the cast of his recent theatrical productions with references to Sunset Boulevard and Mommie Dearest.  And he ranks his favorite shelled candies.  It’s a can’t miss hour of fun and excitement!

In the spirit of references, we even reference some of the things we have been talking about here at Le Blog and on Twitter.  One lucky reader even gets name-checked.

Lebeau’s Le Show: Episode 005 – Under Or Over Rated


Episode 005 Cover

 

This month, Daffy and I discus under-rated movies, TV shows and music.  We also call out the entertainment we think is over-rated.  Our choices may ruffle some feathers.  Even Daffy and I can’t see eye to eye on this one.  Our conversation veers from Finding Nemo to Eyes Wide Shut.  We’ve got zombies and orgies and people getting shot in the head.  It just may be the wildest episode we have recorded to date.  By the end, I’m looking for a new co-host and Daffy is eulogizing Casey Kasem.  It’s a silly show that is bound to be under-rated by some listeners.
