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)…


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

Matt defines Gotham for Beginners and NYC couch planning!

The Addams Family

This Week: Matt is breathing heavy!!! Marc is annoyed by a 3 second scene in the film!!! Kirk is the liveliest he’s ever been!! And Doug rates hundreds of comedies with 5 stars!!!

Treatment 167 – The Doom Generation

DoomGenerationThe guests just keep on bringing the funny, as we welcome Heidi Vanderlee this week! Along with her super-cool MST3k fan status, Heidi also shares her love of weird/satirical/emo/tragically hip films of the 90s!

The Doom Generation

This flick features lots of super-hip people being sad and sharing feelings of general ennui while driving across country in a beat-up Buick and committing a series of murders while having lots of sleazy motel sex! Yep. The 90s!

This Week on the Show: Heidi and Marc commiserate about the inherent uncoolness of playing the cello in Junior High! Kirk briefly takes on hosting duties, by popular request!! Matt shares an anecdote about smuggling food into movie theaters!!! And Doug is…out sick.

Treatment 164 – Escape From L.A.

BuscemiMarch, brings Women’s History Month, and in tribute we decided to make an effort to break-up the sausage-fest that is our podcast with a month full of awesome female guests! Taking the lead is Maggie Serota, from the Lowtimes Podcast, who knocks it out of the park with her choice for this week’s film!

Escape From L.A.

Kurt Russell chews some scenery in this incredibly camp sequel to the (much better) Escape From N.Y.! It features a cast of greats, like Steve Buscemi, Peter Fonda, Valeria Golino, Pam Grier, Stacy Keach, Bruce Campbell and MORE! It also features some of the dumbest scenes in cinema history!

This Week: Maggie flaunts her podcasting fortune, and drops some serious Carpenter knowledge! Matt is on his best behavior, but still slips in some miners!! Kirk drops some golden one-liners, but is barely audible!! And Doug IS Snake Plissken!!

Next Week: Be sure to subscribe on iTunes, so that you’re with us for special guest Abby Denson and her film choice, The Apple!
