Treatment 114 – Phantoms

McDonaldsThis week’s show is full of posturing, name-calling, tension, anger, and drama!!

Oh, and we also cover a movie about a giant slime monster made of oil.


This one features the wonderful Peter O’Toole, and the slightly less wonderful Ben Affleck. Oh, forget it. What’s the point? I never wanted to be a podcaster anyway. I wanted to be….a lumberjack! Leaping from tree to tree as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia. With my best girl by my side! The Larch! The Pine! The Mighty Sequoia!

GASP… as Doug makes his triumphant return!!

GAWK…as Marc storms off the set to go sulk in his trailer!!!

GRIN….as Kirk, Matt, and Doug continue without him….somewhat haltingly!!!

Will everyone make up in the end? Will there be another episode? Did you watch Phantoms on Netflix? It’s available to watch streaming, if you want. Did you go to iTunes and rate the podcast? If not, maybe wait for another episode before doing that… This might not be the best example of the show.

Next Week: We might not be back, but if we do come back we’ll be talking about Solarbabies!!! (Jaime Gertzburger.)

  1. They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, but if SchlockTreatment were to be absent from my life, my heart may break.

  2. I think “Fuckface Butterfly” would be a great name for a band.

    Anyways, are there any plans in the future to give the treatment to the 1983 testosterone-drenched “Lone Wolf McQuade,” starring the King of the Roundhouse kick himself, Chuck Norris? It’s got all the right ingredients: David Carradine, a love scene involving a garden hose and Barbara Carrera, and a scene in which we behold a beer-washed Norris gun his buried Ford Bronco to freedom, ejaculating him from the earth like some gold-bearded Phoenix.

    I remember watching this with my older brother, and when that Chuck Norris emerged from his foolish enemies’ intended grave, my brother raised his arms up and punched at the air, hooting in masculine affirmation. No kidding. Then again, he had bad asthma, and back then they had him on steroids.

  3. I just got around to seeing Phantoms, and you really see why Dean Koontz is a poor man’s Stephen King. The first half is The Mist, but it isn’t scary or tense, and then it turns into The Thing, but once again, not scary or interesting. It’s like he took barely scaring moms and made a career out of it.
