"So named because it's the only part of Los Angeles you get to see in the film."

Official Show NotesEdit

"WE'RE BACK. Elliott's globetrotting, Stu's evening shifts, and Dan's almost-an-actual-writing-career couldn’t keep us off the Internetwaves for long. Will our 77th episode be an audio classic on the level of Talking Heads ‘77? Only time will tell. Meanwhile, Stu tries out a new cool guy/annoying mouth sounds persona, Elliott pitches a chocolate-based Terminator sequel, and Dan keeps us up-to-date on important developments in the world of Penny meeting a dinosaur."

Movie SummaryEdit


The movie was not based on the chili of the same name. Elliott was chomping at the bit to watch Skyline, or maybe Stuart is mis-remembering. Like Cloverfield with aliens but they don't leave the house. Stars Eric Balfour, "Horseface McMustache". Donald Faison, "Scrubsie McScrubs" was also in the film.


The movie farts (sic) getting interesting literally 40 seconds before the credits roll. This is a setup for a squeak-url.

Final JudgmentsEdit

  • Bad Bad Movie (Elliott) @31:45
  • Bad Bad Movie. (Stuart) @33:35
  • Bad Bad Movie (Dan)
­The movie had a lot of crazy shit in it. The problem with it was, uh… I mean, I don't mind a movie that has a bunch of plot holes if they jack up that craziness and make it entertaining. The problem with this movie is there's a bunch of stuff that didn't make any sense, and it was then buttressed by a lot of scenes of people doing nothing. In a room.

Episode HighlightsEdit


  • Stuart was going to try out chewing gum. Elliott thinks this means Stuart is a cool guy who doesn't care what other people think. It's really disgusting.
  • Elliott was in France doing bad movie research in France. Drive Angry 3D, which is called Drive Angry 3D there. They do a classic Flophouse bit, "We Don't Know French"

Movie PitchesEdit

Alien Fugitive
While on the run from space invaders, a woman has to get used to the fact that her love's brain was put in an extraterrestrial's body. @22:50
Alternate title: King Babies
Prequel to The King's Speech. Stuart is working on the screenplay. It's a treatment right now.
Gorilla Castle Freak
The sequel to King Gorilla. Other movies in the series: A Gorilla In The Family, Invisible Gorilliac.
Skyline (fan cut)
Ends at a family barbecue where Eric Balfour's baby's eyes glow red and then David Lee Roth sings "Walkin' On The Skyline". @23:35
P2: Pudgement Day
He's living liquid chocolate that can turn into any shape, primarily bunnies, squares, footballs, oranges… and creme eggs? No, that's how you know it's the chocolate robot, there's no creme inside the creme egg. It's just chocolate that turns into a knife. It's not very dangerous, because it's just chocolate. You can just bite off the end of it. Which you'd want to, because it's delicious. The climax of the film involves the hero eating the chocolate cyborg. @38:30
Untitled Big Bang Theory Alien Invasion Movie
A bunch of guys with Asperger syndrome have to survive an alien attack. And they hate each other. @26:00


  • "Who plays Skyline in this movie?"
  • ­Wait… what?

Thanks to donators. If you know an eccentric millionaire, solve their hedge maze, the curse of their antiquities collection, spend a night in their spooky mansion, get the money, and donate it to the Flophouse.

Mailbag SongEdit

No song this time.


"Top Flouse" from Zach Lastnamewithheld @35:45
­G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is a bad movie. […] It's a terrible movie, and it doesn't make any sense, and it's stupid. And especially, for a movie called The Rise of Cobra, to end with Cobra being thrown in jail really doesn't make sense.
     —Elliott @36:50
Channing Tatum has way more charisma than Eric Balfour. And he's a mannequin.
"TerrorVision" from Dash Lastnamewithheld @40:00
­He has to get into a glass battle with mirror Hitler.

"Which Movie Would Be Best as a Roleplaying Game?" from Jason Lastnamewithheld @43:15
­The show is rapidly becoming my favorite show featuring a racist (Elliott), a homophobe (Dan), and a drunk (Stuart).
     —Jason @43:40
­Wait, how am I a racist?!
     —Elliott @43:40
Bratz @45:15
He asks which movie would be best for a roleplaying game adaptation, preferably with eight sided dice. The unanimous decision is Bratz: the Movie. You got your spellcaster Brat, paladin Brat, chaotic evil mage Brat, but they'll talk about that later. The Carrie Nation Guidebook is the first supplement. The main rulebook would have all the rules for being a Brat. What makes a Brat different from a regular human? Brattitude levels would go up. It's explained in chapter 4, Brattitude. A music career is a good adventure pack or adventure seeds. "Our recall for the events of the Bratz movie is amazing."
