Season 8, Episode 3 (Originally released on March 10, 2024)

On today’s episode of the SLPS Michael is joined by his beautiful and talented wife, Amanda Viers, to discuss the Kevin Bacon classic, FOOTLOOSE, directed by Herbert Ross from 1984 as well as the MTV remake directed by Craig Brewer from 2011. Both films have their pros and cons, and we will dissect them both. Which film is superior? Which had the better songs? Which had the more emotional dance?! Listen and find out.

Also worth noting, Amanda is not only the graphic designer for the show, but she co-hosts our Patreon show “Cage is the Rage” which is where we slowly work our way through the films of Nicholas Cage.

As always, please rate, review, and subscribe.
