 Piranha II The Spawning | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 5609

This week we are talking "Piranha II The Spawning" and this just so happens to be our second James Cameron-directed flick this year... YEP, James Cameron directed this one, well 75% of it until he was fired for taking too many shots. For this one, we brought back our buddy Nick, who has helped us make sense of Munchie, Ghoulies, and more.  Nick came prepared with some behind the scene stories and even noticed some parts of Piranha II that would show up in later James Cameron flicks.  Piranha II had us discussing flying fish, boating a boat, an odd relationship with Anne and her son, dynamite fishing, and more. This is a video review you can watch at sequelsonly.com/Piranha2 The next sequel that will be discussed is a Friday the 13th even though we don't have any more Friday the 13ths this year and we are doing Part V: A New Beginning. This movie is the Halloween III of the Jason Voorhees saga because it tried something new that a lot of fans love and hate, it's quite the lightning rod.  I was lucky enough to interview the Final Girl from it, our 1st Friday the 13th Survivor, Pam Roberts herself actress Melanie Kinnaman.  Melanie talked about growing up in Boston, becoming a dancer in NYC, doing broadway and off broadway, her big-time commercials she did, landing Friday the 13th, a wild story about "Best of the Best", and more.  I loved talking to Melanie about her career and we had a lot of laughs.   Follow us on all social media @sequelsonly and our website is sequelsonly.com Review, rate, and share us with your friends, enemies, neighbors, exes, and even that annoying supermarket clerk! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

 Actress & Singer Carole Davis (Mannequin/Piranha II/The Flamingo Kid) | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 4678

The next sequel we are reviewing is "Piranha II: The Spawning” and for it, I interviewed Actress, Singer, and Activist Carole Davis.  Carole grew up with her first love of singing where she was singing all over the world, but then after going to an audition just to support a friend, she was called in to audition and got it. The movie didn't matter because she chose most of her roles based on where they were being shot.  Carole was in so many great movies like Mannequin, The Flamingo Kid, The Shrimp on the Barbie, and more. But, I also enjoyed hearing about her singing career which includes stories involving Prince, getting the job as singing the end credit song for "Love Potion no. 9" (I linked it below for you to listen to because it's awesome), and more.  Amazing chat! This has an unedited video interview you can watch at sequelsonly.com/caroledavis Links mentioned in this episode:  Carole's IMDb https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0204316/ Carole's Love Potion no. 9  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXUa2XhQjC0 Next up is our review of "Piranha II: The Spawning", which is free on Youtube, we watch the Director's Cut.  This movie has things that I never thought I would ever see on screen, but now I have.  Follow us on all social media @sequelsonly and our website is sequelsonly.com  Review, rate, and share us with your friends, enemies, neighbors, exes, and even that annoying supermarket clerk! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

 The Last Sharknado: It's About Time | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 6578

This week we are talking "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time" which I went thinking this was the 3rd film in the series, but sadly mistaken.  This is a sequel that took a sorta joke and turned it into a franchise that people love, Jamie not so much.  We discussed the main plot of the movie is wrong, the time traveling, the many borrowed movie quotes, Dee Snider crushing it, and so much more.  These sharknados seem to follow Fin and the gang, but you be the judge.   This is a video review you can watch at sequelsonly.com/Sharknado6 The next sequel that will be discussed next is "Piranha II: The Spawning" which is directed by James Cameron.  This movie got me the chance to chat with an actress who we loved in Mannequin and The Flamingo Kid, Actress Carole Davis.  Carole talked about how she sorta accidentally got into acting, her amazing singing career that includes singing the end title credits for "Love Potion no. 9" starring Sandra Bullock plus a story involving Prince that you'll have to hear to believe.   Follow us on all social media @sequelsonly and our website is sequelsonly.com Review, rate, and share us with your friends, enemies, neighbors, exes, and even that annoying supermarket clerk! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

 Escape from LA | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 5670

This week we are talking "Escape from LA" which we wanted to love because the cast is top notch; Russell, Keach, Buscemi, and more, but unfortunately we did not.  There were a lot of similarities between the 1st one and a lot of oddities that Carpenter believed 2013 would look like, so we had our action sequel expert Andrew Powers help us break it down.  We discussed Peter Fonda surfing, basketball to the death, Jose Cuervo Jones, the president's daughter stealing Air Force 3, the odd value of a dollar, and more.  I wish we got the Escape from Cleveland they mentioned A TON of times in this film. This is a video review you can watch at sequelsonly.com/EscapefromLA The next sequel that will be discussed next is "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time" and for it, we chatted with Actor Patrick Labyorteaux.

 Mannequin 2: On the Move | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 6624

This week, we discuss "Mannequin 2: On the Move", which is honestly one of the best sequels we've covered this year.  This movie has the perfect 80s/90s feel to it and a great cast that has a young Kristy Swanson, William Ragsdale, Stuart Pankin, Meshach Taylor,, and Terry Kiser absolutely CRUSHING IT!  Does this movie have plot holes? Yes, it's like swiss cheese, but it doesn't even matter because it is still hilarious.  We discuss kissing mannequins, sexy vs sporty perfume, broadway shows put on by a department store, the german Three Stooges, and more. This is a video review you can watch at sequelsonly.com/Mannequin2 Next up is our review "Escape from LA" where we discuss a movie where basketball can be life or death and that's not a metaphor.

The next sequel we are reviewing is "Mannequin Two” which is happening because I interviewed an actor who I absolutely love in Stuart Pankin.  Stuart started his journey because he loved hamming it up at his family dinners growing up in Philadelphia.  We talked about how he landed his 1st job in Hollywood which involves him singing a parody song with Kevin Kline playing piano, so cool.  Stuart is hilarious on-screen and off because he had me cracking up a lot during this chat.   Stuart has a new movie out on VOD 5/31 called "Deep in the Forest" (link to the trailer below) This is a video interview you can watch at sequelsonly.com/stuartpankin Links mentioned in this episode: "Deep in the Forest" Trailer link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdV7us5FQvg "Deep in the Forest" will be available VOD on 5/31 Stuart's IMDb https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0659573/ Next up is "Mannequin Two" in two weeks, the movie is free on Tubi.   Next week we chat with Stuart's co-star in "Deep in the Forest" and close friend the also amazing Peter Jason.  Peter worked with John Wayne, Spielberg, John Carpenter, Seagal, and so many more.  Peter is a high school football turned actor, because of a girl, which is a story a good amount of guests told me.

 Jason X | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 5795

This week, we discuss "Jason X" aka Jason Goes to Space.  It's Friday the 13th this week, so we are required by sequel law to review one and we picked a doozy. I admittedly never gave this one an honest chance when I rented it at 15 years old, but I had a lot of fun 20 years later.  We discussed the reason this movie is set in the future, possible other plots for future installments, the terrible professor, nano spiders, the epic kills, and more.   This is a video review you can watch at sequelsonly.com/JasonX The next two weeks are back-to-back interviews with two AMAZING actors who I grew up on, Stuart Pankin and Peter Jason.  They are both in a new film that premieres VOD on 5/31 called "Deep in the Forest".  See the trailer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdV7us5FQvg Stuart Pankin is an actor who grew up in Philadelphia and went on to be in all your favorite tv and movies growing up like The Dirt Bike Kid, Mannequin 2 (which we are covering), Arachnophobia, Not Necessarily the News, Knots Landing, the voice of Earl Sinclair on The Dinosaurs, and more.  Stuart was a hoot and loved talking about how his journey to Hollywood began. Peter Jason is an actor who has worked with everyone from John Wayne to Spielberg to Donald Pleasance to James Garner and he loves talking about the old Hollywood.  If it wasn't for a girl he had a crush on senior year, he would have never tried out for the school play and it was instant love.  Peter's credits include They Live, Gunsmoke, Deadwood, Arachnophobia, Escape from LA(which we are covering), Baskets, and more.   Peter and Stuart became dear friends on the set of Arachnophobia and have been buddies ever since.

 Actor and Voice Actor Garry Chalk(Freddy vs Jason/The Fly II/Transformers) | File Type: audio/x-m4a | Duration: 5053

The next sequel we are reviewing is "The Predator” and I am interviewing an actor who I have in so much over the years in Garry Chalk like "The Fly II", "Freddy vs Jason", "Stargate SG-1", and more.  Plus, Garry's voice credits include so many of my childhood favorites like "Camp Candy", "GI Joe", "Transformers", "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog", and more.  I loved that Garry only pursued a career in acting because of a stock market crash and that made him leave finance.  I loved hearing about how "The Fly II" and the role of "Scorby" was a turning point in his career.  Garry also talked about how voice acting started, Freddy vs Jason, Charles Bronson, taking care of his fans, and more.  Great chat.

Playball!  Baseball is back and to celebrate, we are discussing "Major League Back to the Minors".  This movie turns the reigns of the franchise over to Scott Bakula, who is aging minor league pitcher Gus Cantrell.  This sequel had a lot for us to discuss like the switch from the Indians to the Twins, Ted McGinley's insane portrayal of "Huff", the confusion that a AAA team is signing aging veterans off the street (and from his mini-golf course), why tennis comedies wouldn't work, the lack of players with names, and more.

This is a video review you can watch at sequelsonly.com/MajorLeague3 The next sequel that will be discussed next is "The Predator".  For this sequel, I interviewed actor and voice actor Garry Chalk.  Garry is someone who I KNOW you have heard over the years or have seen because he has over 400 credits.  Garry's acting career took off after his role of "Scorby" in "The Fly II" and from there he went on to be in Freddy vs Jason, Superbabies: Baby Geniuses II, The Sea Wolf w/ Charles Bronson, and lots more.  Plus he's lent his voice to The New Adventures of He-Man, Reboot, Sonic the Hedgehog, Megaman, and a ton more.  Great chat about his career and so many great memories that he shared with me.
