Episode #26 -- The Thief of Bagdad

(or: "If the Octopus Doesn't Get Ya, The Spider Will")


In this episode we watch the 1940 version of The Thief of Bagdad, which mashes up a few of the stories from One Thousand and One Nights into a vividly colored, fairly goofy movie. Tara has to do a lot of the heavy lifting in this episode, since Andrew is sick (again). While we were recording, the both of us felt like we were talking a lot, and it wasn't until we got into the editing process that we realized-- oh wait, no, Andrew is hardly talking at all. Shameful!

Also in this episode, we talk about The Eric Andre Show, which is our collective new favorite thing. We spend a few minutes talking about it in the episode, so rather than retread the same ground we did there, here are a few clips to give you an idea of how great and crazy it is:
