Description

Dave and Justin watch the #1 show on Netflix for the week and try to answer the question: why are people watching this? Comedy and consternation ensue as two agreeable middle-aged chaps from rural Canada are subjected to bizarre Korean sci-fi, graphic true crime documentaries, unnecessary medical dramas, baffling 90s sitcoms, and insufferable Hallmark Christmas films. Their honest reactions are filled with wit, insight, and that oh-so Canadian brand of wholesome irreverence and humble exasperation.

Episode Date
Maid
3865

Here’s the official Netflix synopsis for Maid: Single mother Alex turns to housecleaning to make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and overcomes homelessness to create a better life for her daughter, Maddy. Ashley joins the boys to discuss traffic law and sadness. Dave regrets the time he threw Spiderman off a cliff. Justin explains why food waste is a crime against humanity. 

Justin's synopsis: Are you feeling good today? Maybe even a little happy? Life treating you well there, bud? Well, watch a few episodes of the Maid and remind yourself that you are just a few missing paycheques away from navigating a bureaucratic hellscape where a faceless welfare system could give a shit whether you live or die and you might end up scrubbing a rich lady’s toilet for ludicrously small amounts of money while Andie MacDowell feeds your toddler vodka-soaked sandwiches for lunch. It could happen to anyone.

The Guilty
3217

Here’s the official Netflix synopsis for The Guilty: A troubled police detective assigned to 911 operator duty scrambles to save a distressed caller during a harrowing day of revelations – and reckonings. Dave and Justin both liked Jake Gyllenhaal’s excellent acting, vomiting, and held-in man crying. Justin wonders why the Scandinavians are obsessed with dead children. Dave calls 911 and speaks directly with Jake Gyllenhaal about Advil and Starbucks.

Justin's synopsis: Would you like to watch Jake Gyllenhaal talk on the phone for one and a half hours? No? What if I told you that you get to watch him cry and then vomit into a public toilet? Still no? What if I told you there was a dead baby involved. Still not sold? Your loss, sucker. Because these are all the ingredients for a compelling-ass movie!

Squid Game
4275

Dave and Justin discuss Squid Game the #1 show on Netflix this week. Here’s the official synopsis: Hundreds of cash-strapped contestants accept an invitation to compete in children's games for a tempting prize, but the stakes are deadly. Ashley joins the lads this week to explain why the protagonist of this show is in fact a good guy, and why Korean street food is da bomb. Dave finds himself dolling out life advice from a bathroom stall for people drinking nose blood. Justin really liked this show, even though the bad guys look like Teletubbies. Oh, and Justin and Ashley would totally trample Dave’s dead body if they ever got the chance to play the deadly version of Red Light/Green light IRL.


Justin's synopsis of Squid Game: Imagine a world in which the Teletubbies ran an underground gladiatorial arena where disenfranchised people and terminal cancer patients battle to the death in order to win confusingly large sums of money. It’s like bum fights for kids crossed with a technicolor version of the holocaust. Sounds awful right? Nope. It’s compelling and captivating and I don’t understand why.

Justin was so confused by what was happening that he admits to fast-forwarding through some of the film out of spite.
