LAMBcast #130: Franchise look-back: Rocky

by Dylan · August 31, 2012 · LAMBcast · No Comments

Anyone who’s heard me wax poetic about advice or guidelines or just my personal preferences for podcasts in general knows that, in general, I’m not a fan of superlong podcasts.  I try to keep this show around the hour mark, though I realize that with five participants on just about every show, that’s pretty unrealistic.  I regularly give guest hosts like Nick and Jason a hard time before they record a show since they have a tendency for longer shows in general.

So if I come off as hypocritical with this week’s episode, it’s not for a lack of awareness on my part.  But you know what?  I don’t care.  Dan, George, Fogs and first-timer Joe Guiliano of Two Dude Review joined me to discuss not one, not two or three or even four, but all six films in the Rocky franchise.  It felt not like homework – as can sometimes occur – but an event for the five of us, and somewhere along the way became the show I’d been looking forward to the most in a long while.

Yeah, we rattled on about the films for over 100 minutes, but we all know that we could have easily gone for another 100.  That said, for such an epic show, I think it feels tight, and be sure to stick around during the early musical interlude, and if that weren’t enough, I have a special treat at the end, too.  Enjoy.
