Podcasts That Got Me Through 2010: #4 Doug Loves Movies

Warning: These reviews are moderately if not completely profane.

This past year has had it’s ups and downs and I have found that there have been many podcasts that I needed to get through a lot of the hard times. These mini reviews (which will be sporadic in coming up because my computer is dead and my internet access is limited) are my way of thanking five that have brought laughter into my life.

So thank you.

#4 Doug Loves Movies:
Doug Benson has to be the most productive stoner in the world. It’s amazing how much he ends up doing. In addition to his stand up, his BENSON INTERRUPTION theater extravaganzas and his fresh new viewing of the BENSON INTERRUPTION on Comedy Central, Doug has time to tell everyone that will listen how much he LOVES movies. His podcast originally started out as “I LOve Movies” but this year he changed to “Doug Loves Movies”. You will find many movies online at which are easily available to watch.

In each episode he has a panel of people that talk about their love of movies or their complete lack of movie knowledge. The panelists are introduced and he’ll ask a few questions before they start playing games. They pick out people from the live audience to play for and the winner gets a bunch of stuff that all of the participants bring in.

Doug Benson, Samm Levine, Leonard Maltin, Morgan Murphy

Sometimes Doug will play the build a title movie game, but every week They play the Leonard Maltin game. He actually played the Leonard Maltin game WITH Leonard Maltin! (Don’t know what the game is? LISTEN AND YOU’LL KNOW!)

There is a reason why it is in my top five podcasts.
