THE SATURDAY NIGHT 3-WAY #5: The Pop-cast!



“… unplagerised comedy for your lugholes!”*

* Take THAT BBC3!

You all know what the score is for The Saturday Night 3-Way by now right? If not, you can familiarise yourself by checking out the first two written Saturday Night 3-Ways by clicking here and here. You can indulge in January’s DEBUT of the podcast by clicking here and you can check out the EPIC 90+minute version by clicking here. Fancy the Watchmen special edition? Check that out here!

This is another special edition this month, in which Fox is absent again (definitely absent, not dead! Honest!) but we’ve stepped back into the “3 movies, 3 friends, 3 opinions” format and done a special pop-cast on all things relating to our upcoming low budget comedy pilot and the movies I think had some sort of influence over the writing and the ideal of what we would like to end up with. Filling the seats on the sofa this time round, as the teaser-poster above reveals, is actor/producer Carl Horne (left), actor/producer/musician Chris Moore (left) and actor/writer/director/producer/pimp-master-general yours truly in the middle!

What can you expect this time round, I hear you not asking? Detailed discussions on… … a quick overview of what Let Me Live is all about, the introduction of the word “schmergans”, confusing Police Academy 4 with the comedy pilot we’re meant to be shooting, ‘Screech’ porn, Paris Hilton porn, other porn, everything coming back to sexual associations, the comedy goddess that is Jane Lynch, another detailed discussion on why we can’t use the C-word, Chris discussing his character of Charlie Fray and Carl discussing his character of Rob Grodin, singing the praises of David Wain’s Wet Hot American Summer, making the word ‘flaccid’ rhyme with as many words as we can find, how to do ‘black face’ successfully, what would happen if the 3-Wayers gave way to any latent homosexual leanings, renditions of 80s TV sitcom theme tunes, another gratuitous pimping of Air Supply, unnecessary karaoke attacks on Chris’ girlfriend, the film for which Chris describes the screenplay as “an absolute pile of shit”, the correct current terminology for drug taking these days, abusive text messages sent to those not concentrating on the films at hand, personal attacks on Rosie O’ Donnell, another attempt by Gazz to pimp his idea of Quentin Tarantino’s version of Black Beauty, why Dawson’s Creek encourages the adolescent male to become crap at sex from the get-go, heterosexual man-love for Wes Anderson, the fact that “it’s not your fault”, the weird factor that many failed attempts at an actual production meeting suddenly turn this edition of a podcast into one, a study of the skin afflication that Michael Jackson suffers, an exclusive demo of Chris’ theme song for the comedy pilot and, as they say, much much much more!

All whilst looking at the following movies:

role-modelsROLE MODELS (2008)

Dir: David Wain

Scr: David Wain / Ken Marino / Paul Rudd / Timothy Dowling

(Click here for the original trailer)

Plot: Danny (Paul Rudd) and Wheeler (Seann William Scott) are two salesmen who trash a company truck on an energy drink-fueled bender. Upon their arrest, the court gives them a choice: do hard time or spend 150 hours with a mentor program for children seeking father-figures. After one day with the kids, however, jail doesn’t look half bad.

rushmoreRUSHMORE (1998)

Dir: Wes Anderson

Scr: Wes Anderson / Owen Wilson

(Click here for the original trailer)

Plot: Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) is a more than determined student at his prep school, Rushmore Academy where he oversees anything with the word “extra-curricular”. He befriends a preschool teacher named Ms. Cross (Olivia Williams), whom he ends up falling in love with. Only to find things take a turn for the worst when his mentor, Herman Blume (Bill Murray), an unhappy millionaire falls for her as well. As a result, their personal and professional lives spiral out of control.



And there you have it. As I said in the pop-cast, we’ll be back sooner rather then later. The running order is not confirmed but we have a “Girls Vs Boys” Double-Bill night planned with more of the cast of Let Me Live, and Fox will be back into the fold most definitely for another regular run.

Did you enjoy it? Did you find it funny? Did you agree with us? Did you disagree with us? Can anyone remember what the name of the girl was who I lost my virginity to? Hit The Saturday Night 3-Way “Crew” up in the Talkbacks below!

    What the hell happened to Seann William Scott? He was poised to be the most successful of the American Pie fraternity, and then he just vanished.

    And I apologize for being M.I.A. lately, but I’m really trying to find a J.O.B.
