Your Best Bits - Will
2022/06/16
Kevin here. On Monday night after we posted our last Mini Bits, my little dog Rosie took a turn, and yesterday I said goodbye to her. It's been a traumatic few days. Rosie was my first pet and I had her for twelve years. The longest relationship in my life. I got her from Battersea Dog's Home as an 11-month-old pup when she was found abandoned. I was still in my twenties and Grabbers was still just a script no one had read. Over the last twelve years, she's been the one constant in my life through many ups and downs and two moves. She never failed to keep me company and I'll miss her in ways I'm embarrassed to admit. She was the most gentle of dogs, and so loving. I've been down since it all happened, and I didn't want to discuss it on the pod as I'm still in the uncontrollable tears stage. Instead, I asked Will if we could record an episode to take my mind off things, but I didn't want to have to do much. I just needed the distraction. Will obliged. He always does. I hope you like this episode and I hope you don't mind the extra post this week. P.S. If you can afford it, and if you can give one a good home, consider rescuing a dog. They don't need much, but they'll give you everything in return. Rosie was the best decision I ever made.

Mini Bits #21 - Random Chat
2022/06/06
Will and Kevin got together to record an episode of The Second Rate Show that will be out next week, but right as they got on mic they ended up postponing that recording (to rope in our old pal Jamie Hannigan for it). So, while they were all set up, they hit record and started chatting without a roadmap. This is what came of it.

The Best Bits: Second Rate Show - Dead Heat (1988)
2022/05/31
Will and Kevin mentioned they would be substituting the "All the Best Bits" audio commentaries for something new and this is that something new. It's called "The Best Bits: Second Rate Show" and in each hour-long episode, they flashback to the week of release in a random year and give a second chance to a film they didn't see the first time. And for this Patreon-backed pilot episode, they travelled back to the summer of “Die Hard”, “Rain Man”, and “Beetlejuice”, and took a chance on "Dead Heat". A cop (Joe Piscopo) and his undead partner (Treat Williams) must chase down the diabolical villain who killed him.
