Episode 100: Top Gun (1986)

The guys head into the Danger Zone with Maverick and Goose on this week’s podcast for the big episode 100 on Tony Scott’s 1986 film, Top Gun. The Bit Players celebrate this listener-selected movie by talking about the film’s seemingly limitless cultural reach, the film’s iconic soundtrack and moments that go with the songs, as well as the incongruous relationship of critical and audience response. The guys give a big upside-down middle finger to the first 100 episodes and look forward to 100 more.
