Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Andy Dierker and Shawn Bowers return to Remake to take on the craziest of sequels Gremlins 2: The New Batch. And just like the film, we're all over the place in this episode.

Remakes begin around 30ish mins (I think): Andy gets a ragtag crew for a heist; Rob updates and adds kids; and Shawn makes a 4th rule.

Follow Shawn Bowers on instagram @ shawnbowers to view his pokemon/Garfield mash ups. And, please, leave Andy Dierker alone.

Also a shout to Buck Lepard. Follow him on twitter @ BuckLePard

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Remakes begin at 47mins: Laura cranks up the 007 Style; Rob sets it in 1985 with a new cast; and Bacon incorporates the Chicago Bears for Ace Ventura 3.

100th Episode! Street Fighter!

100 Episode! Holy Cow! We did it. We made it to 100 episodes. 

The very first remake was Super Mario Bros, so we figured for the 100th we do another failed video game adaptation: STREET FIGHTER.

This was recorded back in May featuring Josiah Jenkins, Josh Segovia, Geoff Crump, Morgan Lord, Peyton Brown, James Dugan, Kelly McGuigan, Jon Silver and a special Murdoch Minute with Jeff Murdoch. 

A big thanks to all our past guests and a special bigger thanks to all the listeners. We truly appreciate it. Enjoy!
