The Buddies (well, S’mike, specifically) birth an outstanding new drink, the “Dead Rodent.” “Dr. Strange” gets further critiqued, and then the Buddies go down a deep, deep hole about Mike Birbiglia’s outstanding film “Don’t Think Twice.”
Long story short, a comedy about an improv troupe fucked Mike up but good!
Also: Dissecting the New York City improv scene! Chinese powdered Jesus! Comedic comedy!
Battling a ghost in the machine, the Buddies are joined by special guest and fellow board game geek Joshua Lippincott. Drinks are shared, pizza is ordered, and then things get really, really deep. This, THIS, is the danger of having Josh Lippincott on your podcast!
Also: The moral correctness of dick pics in the modern age! Diagnostic troubleshooting in everyday life! Millennials!
The Buddies drink Mike’s Hendrick’s Gin “health tonics” as they submit themselves to the ultimate test of marital trust: They gave each of their wives $20 and told them to buy the weirdest food they could find, and then the Buddies agreed to eat a little of everything.
No guarantees on Mike n’ S’mike’s continued survival here, folks!
Plus: The Hu’watch 2 looks like poo! Legion love! And Jello!
In this Christmas episode, the Buddies sip a holiday-themed interpretation of the classic rum punch as S’mike helps Mike unbox his latest Firefly-themed Cargo Crate from Loot Crate. Mike doesn’t know what’s in it, which S’mike uses to torment his compatriot.
Also… Tales from Opry Land! Near-matricide! The scariest roller coaster experience ever! The innate horrors of urban decay! Oh, and and comedy, too!
Btw, the sheer genius of this episode’s title will only become evident if you listen to the episode. Or if you know virtually anything about Firefly.
The Buddies meet the night before the Election to record an episode in a different time, before the events of November 8th and everything that followed. The episode’s drink was random liquors mixed with spiced grapefruit tonic.
S’mike’s recent birthday food fails are recounted, including pretentious 7-course meals and unfulfilling foot-longs. The Buddies then dissect the unique joys derived from S’Mike’s birthday surprise gift.
Spoiler: Stretching is alleged to have been heavily involved…
Also: Tales of toddler Halloween fright! Lame-ass crackers! And also Trump hadn’t been elected yet!
In 2009, S Michael Smith was cast in the art house/horror film “The Beast Pageant.”
In 2016, in celebration of Halloween and their 50th episode, Buddies In Space made fun of The Beast Pageant.
That’s right, folks, it’s our super-special interactive 50th podcast episode!!! We basically did a RiffTrax of S’Mike’s movie, and you get to follow along while watching it. The movie is free to stream on Vimeo here.
Navigate to the movie and press “play” when prompted in the podcast to have the interactive experience of watching the movie with us in real time as we mock it/provide tons of production commentary.
In this episode, the Buddies chug delicious non-alcoholic kambucha as they recall the funniest moments from the first Presidential debate, explore the love children have of dinosaurs and S’mike reveals a unique take on Mike’s parenting style.
