Episode 59: The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

It plays the episode from iTunes store or else it gets the hose once more as the guys talk Jonathan Demme’s 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs. They talk about what a classic film villain Hannibal Lecter is, and how successful the first installment of the film franchise is where one of the more iconic villains could really be second-billed behind the absolutely terrifying Buffalo Bill. There is some dissension in the ranks as some Bit Players feel the film is fully deserving of the uncanny Oscar sweep of the five major categories, while some find it to be typical horror cheese. One thing can be agreed upon: The Silence of the Lambs is creepy as hell.

Episode 39: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

The guys embark on an epic journey, perhaps the most epic journey in the history of cinema, with Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The imaginings of J.R.R. Tolkien were brought to life for a whole new generation of fans (the Bit Players included) in 2001, and the films still stand the test of time. Perhaps it’s the nature of the storytelling on display here, with Middle Earth as the setting for the ultimate tale of good and evil. The guys also prep themselves for a journey of this magnitude by picking their road trip essential items and their preference for the leader of their own Fellowship.
