Treatment 239 – Judge Dredd (1995)

rob-schneider-judge-dreddThe Matt & Doug Show, aka Schlock Treatment, kicks off its annual tradition of calling September some other word that starts with S-tember. This year, you’re in for a real treat, because it’s Stallonetember! We’re running hard out of the gate, too, into the near future dystopia of…

Judge Dredd!

Doug sentences Stallone to star in the greatest biopic of all time!

Matt submits evidence on Judge Dredd’s 1,000 Strange Choices!

Next week: Stallonetember tunnels ahead as we try to reach Daylight!

The Matt and Doug Show head back into the old West and become a couple of smart talkin’, gun-slingin’, poker playin’, backstabbin’ hooligans while covering Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, and James Garner in

Maverick!

Doug completely misses the big plot twist in the movie!

Matt tries to figure out “peak Mel Gibson.”

Next week: We kick off a brand new thing! A full month of Sylvester Stallone to be known as Stallonetember starting with the Rob Schneider acting turn Judge Dredd.

Treatment 236 – Madhouse

Go Crazy! The Schlock Treatment family grows by one this week, kind of like when the Batman family adds a new Batwoman. We’re doing them one better, though, because we’ve got Danielle Henderson! Speaking of guests, Danielle brought us a tale of overstayed house guests in the John Larroquette/Kirstie Alley vehicle (actually, that’s a house)…

Madhouse!

Doug lays down lessons on old Netflix business models and Build-a-Bear insurance!

Matt defines Gotham for Beginners and NYC couch planning!

Danielle gives a sneak peek into horror-loving pyromaniac grandmas!

Next week: We’re staying topical with one of the main subjects of Straight Outta Compton! That’s right, we’re looking at you, Ice Cube, in xXx: State of the Union!

Treatment 232- Baywatch/Baywatch Nights

hqdefaultThis week finds our heroes in the most dangerous place they’ve traveled to date: Venice Beach! The Matt and Doug Show, aka Schlock Treatment, aka the New New Rockers, aka Cool Sandwich Bros., have a lot on their plate (besides sandwiches). We’re nose-to-nose with world champion wrestlers, unfrozen viking warriors, and skin cancer when we sail to…

Baywatch & Baywatch Nights!

Matt and Doug try to puzzle out why Baywatch Nights happened!

Doug comes to the table with a new character…who should have come around the week prior!

Matt uncovers some secrets Mario Van Peebles would rather stay hidden!

Next week: Returning guest Maggie Serota wants the airwaves, baby, so The X-Files stays alive! Believe in Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose and  Bad Blood, because they’re out there!

Treatment 227 – Thinner

Thinner

 We’re early this week, you filthy, thieving, non-ethnically descriptive mooks, because of time sensitive material (see below). It’s a more star heavy guest-laden episode than the entire The New Scooby-Doo Movies combined! Join me, Abby Denson, Brian Juergens, and Jonathan Valuckas as we face the curse that is…

Thinner!

Someone earns their most pervy guest award for 2015 IMMEDIATELY (but no one is innocent)!

We reveal stacks and stacks of cultural/gender/sex shaming!

We compare and contrast the better work of almost everyone involved in this mess!

This weekend, you can find Abby and Jonathan as follows:

Abby’s at the West Hartford, CT Japan Summer Festival June 13th: http://www.abbycomix.com/blog/2015/05/20/june-13th-west-hartfords-japan-summer-festival/

Jonathan’s at Flamecom in Brooklyn, NY: http://www.valuckesque.com/news-1/2015/6/6/flamecon-at-the-grand-prospect-hall

Next week: Matt returns, but we’re right back out on the range when we ride down Texas Rangers!

Treatment 224 – Leprechaun 4: In Space

leprechaun4

Space, the final frontier, and Matt and Doug have now been on a nearly five year mission. We’ve never  had a close encounter like this before, though, except that one time in the Hood. Join us as we journey beyond the rim of the starlight, as we vivisect…

Leprechaun 4: In Space!

Matt and Doug LAUNCH into tales of the days of classic rock and/or roll music!

Matt ILLUMINATES the Leprechaun to proper villainy!
