“EuroTrip” (2004) teen comedy. It’s a bingo card of lazy European stereotypes this episode, as Steph, Em, and Norah wade through Matt Damon’s breakup revenge fantasy. One of our hosts discovers white wine, another recedes into dark memories of 13-year-old girl-dom, and yet one more just really, really wants every character in the movie to fail. Tune in to hear Emily’s very special connection to this “Rube Goldberg of plots”, and the hosts’ fondness for “not telling Scotty things”.

Tune in!

Woodworking. Sure, we could make a whole bunch of “wood” jokes in this episode description but we’d like to think we’re bigger than that, OK? Jake and Pat try to recapture their shop class glory days, while Steve patiently makes sure they don’t cut their arms off. Needless to say, Steve looks pretty macho in this Dust Off instalment but what else is new, am I right?
