Back Seat Producers Fanboy Smackdown Shows Special Episode

Happy Anniversary! Retro: FBSD Episode #1

Being jerks we called this “Episode #4”.  Honestly, we wondered if we’d be able to make it through 5, 6 and 1-3. 

Today is the third anniversary of the posting of the first episode of Fanboy Smackdown (which later became Back Seat Producers.)

It’s been an incredible three years, and we’ve got 99 regular episodes and over a dozen special episodes that are out there (or need to get final editing done so we can release them).

This tag is also going to serve as a reminder to anyone who might not have heard the news.

Saturday, May 2, 2009 from 4PM to 7PM CDT, we are going to be recording and streaming our 100th episode.  We have a couple of special guests confirmed and we are going to, for the first time EVAR open up the BSP skype lines so that fans can ‘call-in’ and be part of the show.  This should be a fantastic episode with tons of laughs.  We hope that you all can join us on Ustream and/or Skype.  For details on how to be part of the fun on Saturday, come to our website and we’ll have all the details for you.

Hope you enjoy this blast from the past!

FBSD Episode 059: There Will Be Blood

In this episode, Tony and Adam drink your milkshake; they drink it up.

Just a reminder, the name of the show is changing. We don’t have a date set, but we’ll soon be changing the name of the show to Backseat Producers. If you are an artist who might be able to help out with some of the art for the new site, please send an email to tony at fanboysmackdown dot com.

We talk about There Will Be Blood, the 4th in our series of Best Picture Academy Award Nominated films. During the break, Holden and Tony discuss the movie Iron Man.

Just after the break, we peel back the curtain. Normally when we take a break we BS for a few minutes, refill our drinks, etc. This time we discuss a few things that are coming up in the podcast and some thoughts on other films. This conversation was not intended to be aired, but while editing, Adam thought it would be fun to leave this chat in there. It’s fun and even more casual than the episode proper. We didn’t make a mistake leaving it in there… we know… it’s on purpose… enjoy it.

We follow up our discussion of the film and discuss our thoughts about watching this character’s life arc from his humble beginnings through out his life.

Also, we’ll do a feedback show just before we do the name change, If you have any comments or questions for us,

Send email to tony at fanboysmackdown dot com or adam at fanboysmackdown dot com

Post comments on the website or at the FarPoint Forums.

FBSD Episode 057: Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Tony, Adam, Phil, Paul, Jake and (Grungy)Dan went to the movies Saturday afternoon.  Then they went back to Fanboy Smackdown’s satellite studio and raided the beer fridge.  Then the microphones went live.

This is the result.

This is a wild show and we had a great time talking about the new film Forgetting Sarah Marshall.  We had an even better time teasing Phil, drinking beer and swearing.
