    It has been some time, but we've got another fantastic and fun movie review for your ears. The 1986 blockbuster hit "Short Circuit" featuring actors Ally Sheedy and Steve Guttenberg was horribly terrific, and we dove into it during this podcast. Jeff Warren, Erik Leonard, and Mark Lacasse gave their stellar commentary during this review.For those who grew up in the 1980's - and even if you didn't grow up then - understood what this movie meant to so many. Therefore, we gave "Short Circuit" its due as we dissected everything from the lack of character development, to the awful plot, to the cringe humor.The movie is about a robot who comes to life, runs away, and inevitably finds an individual to "connect" with. Enjoy this review as we take you down the "Short Circuit" road.Head over to our website for all of our podcasts and more: philadelphiasportstable.com.Follow the guys on Twitter:Jeff Warren: @Jeffrey_WarrenLen Hunsicker: @LenHunsickerErik Leonard: @BrickPolittFollow the show on Instagram: instagram.com/philadelphiasportstable"Like" our Facebook Page: facebook.com/PhiladelphiaSportsTable

This week, Kelly Hinkle (@hinx) from BroadStreetHockey.com and the BSH Radio podcast joined us to dive into this hire and other Flyers storylines during this offseason. It was a great discussion!But first, the Philadelphia 76'ers made some decisions during the NBA Draft. They traded their No. 23 overall pick and Danny Green to Memphis for DeAnthony Melton.

(approx. 1:50)From there, we stuck with discussing the NBA as there are rumors abound that Kyrie Irving may be leaving the Brooklyn Nets if he doesn't get a long-term deal? If he leaves for a team in the Western Conference, what does this mean for the East?

    The Sixers postseason issues have come to light during this season with the Toronto Raptors. There are still so many questions with this 76ers team after a very interesting regular season. Joining us this week to get into it is Emily Connell (@third_and_girl) from Liberty Ballers' Gastro Blues podcast. It was a great discussion!But first, we dove into this current Philadelphia Phillies season, and how enraging various aspects of this team have been to watch. Why has there been no consistency? (approx. 4:10)From there, we got into some brief Eagles talk as the NFL Draft is almost upon us. (approx. 18:55)Right after, the guys discussed the direction needed for this Flyers organization, and whether or not Chuck Fletcher will and should be part of it. (approx. 26:35)We then discussed this incredibly Sixers series against the Raptors as this team was up 3-0, and now there are questions about whether or not we'll see a game 7. (approx. 35:20)What we threw down on the Table this week was a great interview with Emily Connell from The Gastro Blue podcast over at Liberty Ballers. We dove into Joel Embiid's injury and what it means for the rest of the playoffs. We also touched on James Harden's level of play as he is apparently on the downslide of his career. Is Doc Rivers responsible for the inconsistencies? All of this and much more this week on the Table!
