Gather your lads and get ready to bash some noggins, because this ain’t your great^45 grandfather’s King Arthur story! Actually, this ain’t really anyone’s King Arthur story, except maybe Guy Ritchie’s. Join Leigh, Brendan, and Chris as they get all lagered up and watch Guy Ritchie’s bizarrely-handled 2017 notbuster, King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword. Topics for discussion include Ritchie’s attempt to graft his style onto a medieval tale, the sausage-fest- er, banger-fest- that is King Arthur and his Lads of the Round Table, and the general video game-esque vibes that permeate throughout. In the end, we try to come up with a better adaptation of the Arthur mythos and offer a drink recipe as reparations for all our Viking shenanigans. Rather than pulling a magic sword from the stone that was your father (don’t even ask), you can be a hero and rate us on Apple Podcasts or Stitcher, like us at facebook.com/whywatchpodcast, and visit us online at dratpack.com.
Look out! In lieu of our more normal subjects, we’re doing this first mini episode in a new mini episode series that we’re calling Why Do I Like This for lack of a better name. In this, we’ll discuss something we like that has a lot of negative connotations of any kind and explain why we like it and offer a defense of it. Join us for the first of however many we end up doing mini episodes as out very own Leigh discusses her love of pop punk music while Chris probes her mind and Brendan is there also. At the risk of shaking things up TOO much, we also have a drink recipe for the medieval mess of a movie that will follow in our next episode. If you in turn decide you like us, you can show it by rating us on Apple Podcasts or Stitcher, liking us at facebook.com/whywatchpodcast, and visiting our website at dratpack.com.
