Read it and Weep
Summary: Read it and Weep is a good podcast about bad books, movies, and TV. Each week 2.5 comedians and a guest make fun of things like Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, Dear John by Nicholas Sparks, Going Rogue by Sarah Palin, and anything Keanu Reeves has been in.

Ezra is smarter than you. Lightning Bonus Round (including the battle of the century: Hades vs Smokey The Bear) Seriously, is Pierce Brosnan terrible or not? I can't tell.
Although we've had some arguments amongst ourselves and with our fans as to whether this is actually terrible, or just run-of-the-mill bad, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief has definitely earned its place on the show. We take it down with the efficiency of a copyrighted video on YouTube. Episode highlights include Ancient Greek Cosmo presents the quiz "Who's Your Daddy?" Naming the subdivisions in hell! Another Read It And Weep debate! "Is 'The Lightning Thief' good for children?" Alex eats a cookie... hilariously!

Don't miss Alex admits to crying Brian and Chris are surrounded with teenage girls John gets shot (and it's awesome!) The missile detecting capabilities of autistic kids and Lightning Bonus Round! Featuring comedian Brian Crall of the Sacramento Comedy Spot. This may not be the worst Nicholas Sparks novel adapted into a movie that we've watched, but it's certainly in the top two.
We finish breaking up with Nicholas Sparks's Dear John. Highlights from the review: Prostitutes! Pounding thighs! The safest war ever! And a section of the book so hot it had to be censored!
Nicholas Sparks continues to haunt us like a poltergeist who only makes boring noises. This episode features: Nicholas Sparks thinks you have Asperger's if... The true meaning of oatmeal raisin cookies We all get honorary psych minors And so much more!

In the second half of Left Behind, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins prove that no matter how bad something is, it can always get worse. Fortunately for you (and us) Ezra never misses a double entendre. Other notable features: Kim helps us make sense of the anti-christ! Muppets are gullible! Sad abortionists!
Alex calls an emergency meeting to talk about Avatar, but discovers both Chris and Ezra liked it. It's a good thing they're still funny when they like something.
The rapture has struck leaving only billions of people behind. Among them, comically named pilot Rayford Steele, promiscuous flight attendant Hattie "the hottie" Durham, and the Antichrist. Hijinks ensue... very slowly.
In an effort to move our show above this terrible movie in Google search results for "Read It And Weep," we review it. It probably wasn't worth it to have to sit through these atrocious 90 minutes.
