#302: Robin Hood / Top 5 Directors of the Decade
Adam-a-dale and Friar Ballgame wear Ridley's Scott's "Robin Hood" for a codpiece this week. Needless to say, there's lots of room to maneuver. Will our merry band find Russell Crowe's take on the swashbuckler, um, adequate? (We're keeping with a terribly inappropriate theme -- apologies to Mr. Keillor and all of NPR ) Or will our in-house OUTLAAAAAAAAAAAAWS find themselves pining for the days of Errol, Kevin and... Favreau? The lads will also prance through some Listener Feedback and finally conclude their never-ending paean to the past decade by annointing Steven Soderbergh King of All Everything as they list their Top 5 Directors of the Decade. God, we wish Soderbergh had directed "Robin Hood." Just saying.
Also on the show: Massacre Theatre and music from Richard McGraw -- Check out Richard McGraw's "Burying the Dead" in iTunes.
