Season 7, Episode 1 (originally released on February 23rd, 2023)
Hello and welcome to the Season 7 premiere of the Shame List Picture Show! We know it’s been awhile, but we’re back after our holiday hiatus to discuss a “classic” 80s comedy. Loved by some, but not all, Michael and Nick sit down to cross WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S off their respective shame lists.
On this episode we talk about a plethora of topics from mental health through cinema, the “dos & donts” of slapstick comedy, building a story around a gag, what a modern day remake would look like, and why some comedies age well and others don’t.
As always, please rate, review, and subscribe.
