Tonight, we host our very special guest: Stephen Tobolowsky!  Stephen Tobolowsky is one of the leading character actors today. He has appeared in over 200 movies and television shows. He has played everything from Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day to Sandy Ryerson in Glee. He has appeared almost naked as Stu Beggs on Californication and has worn the same suit for seven years as Principal Earl Ball on The Goldbergs. Stephen currently appears as Dr. Leslie Berkowitz in the new generation remake of Norman Lear's One Day at a Time. Seasons 1-3, at present, are still available on Netflix.  PopTV and CBS aired Season 4.  Stephen has always been a storyteller. In sixth grade, he won his school's storytelling contest and over that summer won the award as best storyteller in the City of Dallas (13 years old and under division.) That impulse led him into writing. He wrote the screenplay for True Stories with David Byrne and Beth Henley. He wrote and performed his storytelling films Stephen Tobolowsky's Birthday Party and The Primary Instinct. His labor of love has been The Tobolowsky Files, created with producer David Chen. What began as a behind-the-scenes movie podcast has become a sometimes funny, sometimes compelling portrait of a human life - as described by Miles McNutt here. The Tobolowsky Files is available at tobolowskyfiles.com and on Apple Podcasts. Early episodes were also previously broadcast on KUOW 94.9 in Seattle, on WFPL in Louisville, KY and many stations through Public Radio International (PRI).

The trio responds by establishing "Ghostbusters", a paranormal investigation and elimination service operating out of a disused firehouse. They develop high-tech nuclear-powered equipment to capture and contain ghosts, although business is initially slow. After a paranormal encounter in her apartment, cellist Dana Barrett calls the Ghostbusters. She recounts witnessing a demonic dog-like creature in her refrigerator utter a single word: "Zuul". Ray and Egon research Zuul and details of Dana's building while Peter inspects her apartment and unsuccessfully attempts to seduce her. The Ghostbusters are hired to remove a gluttonous ghost, Slimer, from the Sedgewick Hotel. Having failed to properly test their equipment, Egon warns the group that crossing the energy streams of their proton pack weapons could cause a catastrophic explosion. They capture the ghost and deposit it in an ecto-containment unit under the firehouse. Supernatural activity rapidly increases across the city and the Ghostbusters become famous; they hire a fourth member, Winston Zeddemore, to cope with the growing demand. Suspicious of the Ghostbusters, Environmental Protection Agency inspector Walter Peck asks to evaluate their equipment but Peter rebuffs him. Egon warns that the containment unit is nearing capacity and supernatural energy is surging across the city. Peter meets with Dana and informs her Zuul was a demigod worshipped as a servant to "Gozer the Gozerian", a shapeshifting god of destruction. Upon returning home, she is possessed by Zuul; a similar entity possesses her neighbor, Louis Tully. Peter arrives and finds the possessed Dana/Zuul claiming to be "the Gatekeeper". Louis is brought to Egon by police officers and claims he is "Vinz Clortho, the Keymaster". The Ghostbusters agree to keep the pair separated. Peck returns with law enforcement and city workers to have the Ghostbusters arrested and their containment unit deactivated, causing an explosion that releases the captured ghosts. Louis/Vinz escapes in the confusion and makes his way to the apartment building to join Dana/Zuul. In jail, Ray and Egon reveal Ivo Shandor, leader of a Gozer-worshipping cult, designed Dana's building to function as an antenna to attract and concentrate spiritual energy to summon Gozer and bring about the apocalypse. Faced with supernatural chaos across the city, the Ghostbusters convince the mayor to release them. The Ghostbusters travel to the apartment building roof as Dana/Zuul and Louis/Vinz open the gate between dimensions and transform into demonic dogs. Gozer appears as a woman and attacks the Ghostbusters then disappears when they attempt to retaliate. Her disembodied voice demands the Ghostbusters "choose the form of the destructor". Ray inadvertently recalls a beloved corporate mascot from his childhood, and Gozer reappears as a gigantic Stay Puft Marshmallow Man that begins destroying the city. Against his earlier advice, Egon instructs the team to cross their proton energy streams at the dimensional gate. The resulting explosion destroys Gozer's avatar, banishing it back to its dimension, and closes the gateway. The Ghostbusters rescue Dana and Louis from the wreckage and are welcomed on the street as heroes.  TOP 5​Before the Ghostbusters become established in New York City, they release a commercial to advertise their services. The three original members — Peter Venkman (Bill Murrey), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) — appear on television, with the number 555-2368. During the film's theatrical release in 1984, Ivan Reritman ran that very same commercial, which allowed people to call in. Callers would hear a pre-recorded message from Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, who announced that they were unable to answer as they were busy busting ghosts! The number received 1,000 calls every hour, 24 hours a day, for several weeks! Sadly, the line is no longer operational, so if you're being troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night, or you're experiencing feelings of dread in your basement or attic, we don't know what to tell you!“Ghostbusters” is such an iconic title — so much so, that many fans still haven't noticed that, following the opening scene in the New York Public Library in the original 1984 film, the title that appears on the screen is actually two words and not one, reading “Ghost Busters”! Before the filmmakers settled on the now iconic title, Dan Aykroyd originally considered the title “Ghost Smashers”, while “Ghostbreakers” was also an option. The sign outside the Ghostbusters fire station in New York even had variations of these titles during production. “Ghostbusters” wasn't available because of Filmation's Ghostbusters (1975), an unrelated TV series (there's also a 1986 cartoon). In the end, Columbia Pictures obtained the rights, while The Real Ghostbusters (1986 — 1991) was so named to distinguish it from the Filmation version.Despite becoming one of the most iconic characters in the entire Ghostbusters franchise, Slimer is never actually name-dropped in either of the two movies, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II (1989). However, he was referred to as “Onionhead” by the crew of the original film. The “ugly little spud” wasn't actually named “Slimer” until the animated show, The Real Ghostbusters, in which he's part of the team. It's this that inspired his more friendly cameo in Ghostbusters II, in which he offers Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) a ride in a town car. Slimer isn't the only ghost in the original movie who isn't referred to by the name we now know him by Gozer's two minions, Vinz Clortho/the keymaster and Zuul/the gatekeeper are never referred to as "terror dogs", despite the hellhounds now being synonymous with the name.As well as being called “Onionhead” by the crew members of the original 1984 film, Slimer also went by another name — “The Ghost of John Belushi”, something Dan Aykroyd started. Aykroyd has since confirmed that Slimer was heavily inspired by the late John Belushi. For starters, the green spook's hankering for food was based on Belushi's cafeteria scene in National Lampoon's Animal House (1978). The role of Peter Venkman was originally written for the actor, however, he passed away while Aykroyd was working on the script in early 1984. While there are no direct references to the actor in the film, there are plenty throughout IDW's Ghostbusters comic book series, some of which even feature Belushi's character, “Joliet” Jake Blues, from The Blues Brothers (1980), which also stars Dan Aykroyd as Elwood Blues.Once the Ghostbusters cross the streams, the rift between the two dimensions causes the Marshmallow Man to explode, raining down marshmallow on the unsuspecting New Yorkers below. But getting that amount of actual marshmallows to dump on the film's extras was implausible. Instead, Edlund's team collected 500-gallon batches of shaving cream to substitute for the remnants of Mr. Stay-Puft. William Atherton, who played EPA villain Walter Peck, was skeptical about having such a large amount of heavy cream dropped on him, so they tested the idea on a stuntman using only 75 pounds, and it knocked him to the ground. The stuntman was okay, and another smaller batch was collected to dump on Atherton for the final take in the film. **TRIPLE LINDY AWARD** **REVIEW AND RATING**TreyChrisStephen .5Tucker .5 TOP 5Stephen:1 Breakfast club2 T23 Ghostbuster4 Sandlot5 Color out of space  Chris:1. sandlots2.

[School of Movies 2022] Our favourite mafia movie, even over the venerated classics, for reasons that will become immediately apparent. This 1999 comedy directed by Harold Ramis was made at almost exactly the same time as The Sopranos first season was developed. Both explore the very real anxiety that comes with a lifestyle that is inherently dangerous, as well as one that involves such a close-knit family and all the loyalties, hopes, dreams, betrayals and disappointments that come with every other family, only this kind whack people for betrayal. And we knew exactly who to call on for this analysis, our Australian buddies from The Two Shrinks Pod. Together with these professionals we delve into Robert De Niro's disarmingly vulnerable take on a worried father and a still-grieving son, along with Billy Crystal's harangued shrink, positively terrified of winding up sleeping with the fishes, whilst nursing his own paternal resentment.   School of Movies and Two Shrinks are part of the podcast group Fireside Alliance.

Susan and Sharon sit down with the co-creator of “Scarecrow & Mrs. King” - Eugenie Ross-Leming - to get some real behind-the-scenes insight on the Kate Jackson action comedy, feminism in television, and managing long-term success in Hollywood. The discussion includes… - Eugenie's early years with the legendary improvisation troupe Second City, where she performed with the likes of John Belushi, Harold Ramis and Bill Murray. - Writing for Norman Lear on the ground-breaking late-night serials “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” starring Louise Lasser and creating “Fernwood 2 Night” starring Martin Mull and Fred Willard. - How she and writing partner Brad Buckner first pitched “Scarecrow & Mrs. King” to CBS -- and failed to sell it – only to have their luck change when junior executive Carla Singer was promoted and brought them back for another shot. - Working with Kate Jackson and the last-minute casting of Bruce Boxleitner. - Details on the wild days of producing the “Scarecrow” pilot – and her and Brad's decision to leave the highly successful hit series they created.Along the way, we'll hear about the importance of staying true to your vision, the lessons learned over a forty-year career that spans “Scarecrow” to “Lois & Clark” to “Supernatural” -- and the sustaining power of two of the most important relationships in her life: her longtime writing partner Brad Buckner, and her husband, Director and Producer Robert Singer.

Bedazzled is a 2000 fantasy romantic comedy film directed by Harold Ramis and starring Brendan Fraser and Elizabeth Hurley. It is a remake of the 1967 British film of the same name, written by Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, which was itself a comic retelling of the Faust legend. "Hopeless dweeb Elliot Richards is granted seven wishes by the Devil to snare Allison, the girl of his dreams, in exchange for his soul." The film did reasonably well at the box office, earning $90 million worldwide on a $48 million budget. This is Jake H's pick.

*REBOOT IT MERCH IS AVAILABLE NOW:* http://tee.pub/lic/L2Fboy63Wa4 The Reboot Crew is on a job-seeking tour of the only game left in Hollywood: Streaming services! But our list of potential employers is dwindling fast, as we arrive at the offices of Netflix partner Sony to tackle their most frustrating property: Ghostbusters! Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ivan Reitman captured lightning in a bottle when they mashed up blue-collar comedy, Lovecraftian horror and lo-fi sci-fi to create 1984's Ghostbusters. With all-star turns from Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson and Rick Moranis, the film became one of the most unexpected hits of the 80s. But after 7 successful seasons of animated TV and one disastrous live-action sequel, the 90s could not figure out what to do with these ectoplasmic plumbers. A bevy of almost-made sequels plunged the series into development hell. Then, in 2016, a reboot exploded the franchise back across pop culture with the force and fury of a containment unit shut down by the d**kless Walter Peck. Having never met a reboot they couldn't redo, Sony responded to the non-troversy by doubling down, so a new Ecto-1 will ride AGAIN this year! But lukewarm word-of-mouth already has the studio itching for a third do-over... What's the Crew to do with a franchise that has more baggage than a cruise ship? Let's just say...The good guys dress in black, remember that, just in case we ever face to face and make contact. But it won't go how you think.

Book Vs. Movie: National Lampoon's VacationThe 1979 Short Story by John Hughes vs the 1983 Chevy Chase Movie The Margos are celebrating summer with a look at one of the most popular “family” vacation movies ever filmed--National Lampoon's Vacation. Directed by Harold Ramis and starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo, the film is remembered as a classic comedy but due to the National Lampoon magazine influence (we get into THAT history here!) It features crude, blue humor that was normalized by the magazine in the 1970s and is based on a John Hughes short story Vacation ‘58. John Hughes would go on to be THE John Hughes of teen comedies (Pretty in Pink, 16 Candles) and adult “dramedies” (Planes, Trains, and Automobiles & She's Having a Baby) but at the time of this short story publication (Summer 1979), he was a young adman/copywriter who wanted to break into films. His story revolves around a family taking a road trip to California from Illinois in a station wagon. It's funny and profane with many of the elements we would see in the adaptation. Harold Ramis directed the film on a tiny budget and made the father versus the son the protagonist. It is known today for its weird sense of humor, Christie Brinkley in a red Ferrari and one the best theme songs ever written (Holiday Road by Lindsey Buckingham.) Also, racism, incest, animal & elder abuse, masturbation, and Randy Quaid. This one is a real hodge podge of everything 80s in the best and worst possible way. So, between the original story and the 1983 adaptation--which did we like more?In this ep the Margos discuss:The incredible (and very short) life of John HughesThe impact of National Lampoon on comedy in the 70s and 80sThe cast: Chevy Chase (Clark Griswold,) Beverly D'Angelo (Ellen Griswold,) Anthony Michael Hall (Rusty,) Dana Barron (Audrey,) Imogene Coca (Aunt Edna,) Randy Quaid (Eddie Johnson,) John Candy (Russ Lasky,) Christie Brinkley (Girl in the Bikini,) Eugene Levy (Ed, the car salesman,) and Jane Krakowski (Cousin Vicki.)

Who's That Girl? A New Girl Podcast

This podcast covers New Girl Season 3, Episode 8, Menus, which originally aired on November 12, 2013 and was written by Matt Fusfeld & Alex Cuthbertson and directed by Trent O'Donnell. Here's a quick recap of the episode:Jess wants to take her students to the ocean as many of her students have never been but she gets shut down by Principal Foster. Instead, she terrorizes an Asian restaurant who is not being eco-conscious. Meanwhile, Coach convinces Nick to get in shape and Schmidt feels left out.We discuss Pop Culture References such as:Barry Bonds - Nick shares that after training with Coach he'll look like Barry Bonds. Jason Street - When Winston has a  wheelchair after he hurt his ankle, Coach shares that he looks like Jason Street from the television show Friday Night Lights. Additional Pop Culture References such as:Roberto Benigni - After Schmidt sees Winston in a wheelchair, he feels like he's missing everything and says “What's next? Roberto Benigni coming through the halls making everybody laugh?” Roberto Remigio Benigni is an Italian actor, comedian, screenwriter, and director who gained international recognition for writing, directing, and starring in the Holocaust comedy-drama film Life Is Beautiful. For that film, he was the first non-English speaking winner of an Academy Award for Best Actor. Ghostbusters - Jess was calling out that the menu had the circle with the line through it to indicate “No MSG” and Winston helped her with calling out that's ‘the Ghostbusters thing'. Ghostbusters is a 1984 American supernatural comedy film starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis as three eccentric parapsychologists who start a ghost-catching business in New York City. Catch-22 - Nick is trying to help Jess by saying she should try less but she calls out that she doesn't know how to try not to try, which Nick says is a “catch-22”. A catch-22 is a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules or limitations. The term was coined by Joseph Heller, who used it in his 1961 satirical novel Catch-22. Ironside - Winston shouts “I'm coming too, because I ain't a quitter. Ironside!” Ironside is an American television crime drama that aired on NBC from 1967 to 1975. The show focused on Robert T. Ironside, who was a consultant for the San Francisco police department who was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot while on vacation.We also cover two “Schmidtisms” this episode when Schmidt commented on Nick eating Chinese food for breakfast and later when Schmidt tried to spy on the loft. For “Not in the 2020s” we discuss Coach and some of his comments as well as the episode showing them handing out paper menus. For “Yes in the 2020s” we love the way Nick's speech inspired Jess to solve her problem with love and not hate. We also give a brief look into Justin Chon (Brian), the Guest Star we feature in this episode.Also in this episode were the following guest stars who we do not discuss in the podcast: Curtis Armstrong (Dr. Foster - Previously discussed in S2E24), Steve Agee (Outside Dave - Previously discussed in S2E17), Jayda Brown (Crystal), and Jeff Lam (Menu Guy).We also discuss how it's possible that Damon Wayans Jr. and Zooey Deschanel went to high school together. This episode, we did not find the bear.While not discussed in the podcast, we noted other references in this episode including:SUNY Binghamton - When Outside Dave is eating lunch with Schmidt, he pulls out a doll and says he went to SUNY Binghamton. SUNY Binghamton is a university that started out as a branch of Syracuse University and then in 1950 was incorporated into the State University of New York (SUNY) and renamed. In 1965, the campus was formally designated the State University of New York at Binghamton, and in 1992, Binghamton University was adopted as its informal name.This episode got a 8/10 rating from Kritika whose favorite character was Schmidt and Kelly rated this episode a 6.5/10 and her favorite character was Nick!Thanks for listening and stay tuned for Episode 9!Music: "Hotshot” by scottholmesmusic.comFollow us on Twitter, Instagram or email us at whosthatgirlpod@gmail.com!Website: https://smallscreenchatter.com/

Laugh Tracks Legends of Comedy with Randy and Steve

Reading Harold Ramis' resume is like reading a history of classic comedy from the 1970s to the 2000s. The National Lampoon Radio Hour, Animal House, Meatballs, Caddy Shack, Stripes, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, and SCTV -- Harold was a driving force in all of them as a writer, producer, actor, and/or director. He once said he liked to channel the wit of Groucho and the charm of Harpo and boy did he ever succeed. Plus he left us with one of the all time great safety tips (in the guise of Egon Spengler): "Don't cross the streams -- it would be bad."

No, really, who (else) you gonna call at this point? The epic original that launched a franchise, Ghostbusters, is 38 years old today. The Ivan Reitman film starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson as the titular quartet trying to save NYC. Endless reboots, sequels and cartoon series later, how does the source material hold up? Are the circa-1984 SFX spooky or unintentionally hilarious? And, has a Bill Murray character ever not hit on the female lead? Brian and Christina wipe the ectoplasmic residue off their DVDs and give the classic comedy a rewatch. Listen to this.Bonus content including Christina and Brian's own personal ghost stories available at patreon.com/oldroommates! Follow Old Roommates on social media @OldRoommates.
