Vivid was a very good album. It sounded different than other albums released around that time. I enjoyed this podcast very much.
Good show fellows! I loved Big and thought Elizabeth Perkins was smoking hot! Twins had a few funny moments but was otherwise pretty corny. Look forward to your next show!
I teach social studies at a military school in Virginia. I feel it is imperative that I keep up with current events so as to best explain topics that may come up in my classes. But I discovered the Surely guys just before Thanksgiving of 2022. Prior to this, I would listen to my local morning drive time show to stay up on local current events and listen to public radio to get more in-depth coverage on national and global issues. Boy was I a moron! Since Turkey Day, I have not turned on my radio to or from my 30 minute commute each way because of these guys. I have been loving every day’s drive to and from work, reliving the glory of yesteryear, and getting a new perspective on things I was too dense to understand as a teenager in the late 80s and early 90s. Who cares about global warming, geopolitical issues, and Pledge Week when you’ve got so many episodes of the Surely You Can’t Be Serious podcast!?!? I am learning so much about the movies and music that made me and using that knowledge to influence another generation of misspent youth. I am seriously thinking of developing a few lesson plans on entertainment trends of the 80s and 90s in my classroom and I can thank Jason and Dee for that. Do yourself a favor and drop in to the best 80s and 90s pop culture podcast on the inter-webs. You will thank me later. And more importantly you should thank the Surely guys. -Lord Morgan
Great rapport between the hosts. Great knowledge base… you can tell they care about the content and accuracy, but, most of all, you can tell they are passionate about this side job and love what they do. And, I’m a Cold War kid so the things they discuss are right in my formative wheelhouse! Keep it up guys!
Born in the 80s but having grown up in the 90s with plenty of re-runs and love for the 80s. Keep it up!!! Wondering if we will ever see a matchup of Hunt for Red October vs. Crimson Tide with both of their star studded casts and great storylines Keep it up guys!! -Wren
I loved the Van Halen Roth/Hagar series. Keep up the good work Jason & Dee! Still trying to figure out the bra clasps myself!
I have not watched Stranger Things but I love the music that it has brought back to a new generation. I enjoyed the podcast and look forward to future episodes. Keep up the good work Dee & Jason! Kraut Rock On!
Amazing podcast I just got turned onto. Been listing to ever since. As a child of the 70-80 I love it.
Great show! I look forward to reading 90 Days in the 90s. In 1996 I was jamming to Bush, AIC, Soundgarden, and Goo Goo Dolls. That was a great time in my life. Thanks for keeping the 80’s and 90’s alive!
Another great episode Surely men! I love both albums but AIC would be my pick. Tragic premature endings to the vocalists for both groups. Keep up the good work!
Excellent episode today! The executive producer seemed to be slacking but everyone else was on point! The excesses of a rock and roll lifestyle took it’s toll on their talents but Core was beautifully done. Keep up the good work!
Great album! You guys nailed it and I agree with your assessment of the 2 skippers. Everything else is easy to enjoy. Thanks for choosing AIC to review, it’s hard to get enough of these guys. Good job Jason, Dee, and James!
Loved the background story of AIC! I am really looking forward to the track by track episode. Keep up the good work!
What a great trip to the movies of my childhood! Love the hosts and the conversations with their guests. They really breakdown these classics and I absolutely how much I learn listening. Highly recommend. - Danielle, No More Late Fees
I saw Jaws the Revenge in the theater and was not too disappointed. Ellen Brody did a decent job, I wish Martin Brody would’ve been in the movie. Mario Van Peeble’s Jamaican accent was comical. The action scenes sucked and the storyline had many holes in it.
I was thoroughly entertained by Prey as well as your podcast. The details in the movie down to the alien’s antiquated armor and weaponry was genius. A movie with so little dialogue was surprisingly good. The girl was perfectly cast as the heroine.
Citizens! I love both of these movies. The podcast was informative and entertaining. Keep up the good work.
I agree with the hosts that Whitesnake was much better than Girls, Girls, Girls. The Crue can light their white Johnsons on fire and I wouldn’t care. Thanks for another great show, now I must return to my marble arch.
Whitesnake killed it in the late 80’s! Everything from Slide It In and their self titled album kicked the crap out of the competition. I enjoyed the podcast very much. Good job Dee & Jason!
This is a “must subscribe” for anyone that grew up in the 80s. It’s such a great mix of music and film that seems to touch on every weekend of my 1980’s life, and those were the best of times! All of the episodes are home runs, even the ones that I’m not interested in at the outset. It’s been great to go back and watch a lot of the movies discussed with my late-teenage boys so that I get to share the best parts of my teenage years with them. I’m so glad that I found this podcast and I love sharing it with friends and then reminiscing with them each week!
I was a huge Def Leppard fan beginning with High and Dry. Pyromania and Hysteria are 2 of the greatest albums of the 80’s. I got to see them in 1983, 1987, 2003, and 2014. The first time I saw them in San Diego Rick Allen had both arms. One of the better concerts I ever attended was Def Leppard and Tesla at Lloyd Noble in 1987. Great show guys!
I enjoyed the show and learned a lot more than I knew about all 3 movies. Thanks for teaching me valuable knowledge! You guys are super entertaining.
Nobody puts baby in the corner. You guys are awesome! I really appreciate this podcasts. Keep up the good work, keep on keeping on!
Love the insight you guys bring to the show! I cannot wait to hear the final episode. Keep up the good work!
Hands down the best 80s/90s podcast out there. Fun and incredibly well-researched conversations about movies and music - including tons of great shows pitting two classics against each other. If you’re a GenXer or live that era, this is a must-listen.
Good podcast! I look forward to seeing the movie. Prayers for Caleb’s head and Jason’s stones. Keep up the great work.
