Wikipedia synopsis of A Good Day to Die Hard

During the outtakes, you can hear Stuart try (and fail) to interrupt Dan’s singing. He was trying to get us to plug former flop co-host (Red Riding Hood) Alexander Smith’s latest video as his alter-ego Howell Dawdy. Check it out below!

    Dan, if there is another episode that is DAN MCCOY with elliot kalan and stuart wellington I’m going to stop listening. Learn how to balance your levels.

    One of the problems with this franchise is the formula of “we are committing crime X, but really we’re just thieves”. Really, at some point you’d just expect McClane to get genre savvy and just start assuming that every criminal he encounters is doing whatever it is they are doing to cover up their theft. But, for the audience, it just means waiting for that inevitable plot twist.

    It’s like the Wild Things series of movies (yes, there is a series of them — for some reason). You automatically know it’s just gonna be a series of escalating plot twists, where the weak characters are really strong and everybody is in cahoots. And you know they’re gonna spell it all out for you in a set of post-credit scenes.

    If you already know the plot twist ahead of time based on the fact that they use the same one every time, it loses all impact, and you’d be better off just not having one.

    Also, I never really notice anything particularly wrong with the levels.

  3. I’ve yet to listen to the episode, but I have some Flop House related business to attend to:


    A Popeye’s recently opened up near me and the ONLY reason I went and got food from there was because it’s constantly mentioned on The Flop House. THEY OWE YOU.

    btw – The chicken was delicious. And the spicy really isn’t that spicy. Then again, I like really spicy food. My “2” as far as level of spicy might be someone else’s “5”.

  5. Glad you enjoyed the Popeye’s, Waffle! It’s true that their spicy isn’t that spicy, but I’m a spice-wimp.

  7. Wait…what? I’m confused. Did drama happen or is Dan just randomly telling people to go masturbate? @_@

    Also, I can pick out the issue with the levels too. Mind you, that’s with me being VERY nit-picky and calling upon my skills as a mixer of many things audio. Bottom line though is it doesn’t make the show any less enjoyable.

    @Elliott – ^_^. lol. I used to be too until I fell in love with the most awesome Bibimbap in the world. My mouth was numb and I was crying and sweating and snotting all over the place by the time I finished it, but it was sooooooooo worth it. Fucking delicious.

    Oy vey. I hope this all makes sense. My sleeping pills are kicking in so I’m struggling to remain coherent. lol.

  8. I have no idea how to edit posts on here, so excuse the double-posting please.

    Finally listened to the episode!

    At least…I am seriously hoping that was the one with the Extras reference. I’ve been listening to a bunch of them and some of the jokes and bits are starting to blend together. lol.

    Anyway, awesome show as always.

    Ooh, we came so close to getting a “Good Day to Die Blart” reference. Alas.

  10. Watched this movie after listening to your podcast. I thought the 4th movie was bad, but after viewing this one I think we all owe Live Free or Die Hard an apology. Bruno just did not give two shits. I think his repeated lines about “being on vacation” was art imitating life where Willis really was supposed to be taking a vacation, but this film production kept interrupting that. Where do you guys rank the Die Hard movies? For me, it’s:

    1) The Towering Nakatomi Inferno
    2) McClane Saves New York, but Learns to Sorta Fight Prejudice Too
    3) Die Hard vs Airport 90
    4) Computers Are Scary
    5) McClane & Son (Premiering this Fall on CBS)

    First commenter was rude but there is no doubt McCoy’s voice is louder than the rest, which is a little annoying sometimes 🙂
