044: Lethal Weapon 2 – The Runaway Franchise Podcast

We rolled into 1989’s Lethal Weapon 2! Tom decided to participate in the drinking game associated with the franchise and tries to hum the saxophone tunes…a lot…which makes it very difficult for Dom and Ed trying to explain past current events to him. Tom’s drunkenness aside, Ed enjoys toilet bombs, and Dom enjoys DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY!  Okay-enough of this description-okay-okay-Just listen to the podcast, okay? Okay-okay-okay-okay-okay…

The Lobby:

We figure out which of us is the Riggs, Murtaugh, and Getz. And then we ask you the listeners to send in your stories of being stranded on a toilet seat!

043: Lethal Weapon – The Runaway Franchise Podcast

The Runaway detectives partner up to take on their latest case, 1987’s Lethal Weapon! Ed is fresh to the investigation but…still very uninterested…Tom is ill and going more mental than usual and Dom does everything to talk about  his favorite buddy cop duo, Jackie Chan and Chis Tucker (Cinemablend, you’re on his list…). Where will this investigation lead the boys? Will the trio get passed their differences? Listen  to how the case unfolds!

In the lobby:

We got an email of a listener’s tragic Peepee toilet lid smashed tale in reference to Home Alone 3.

041: Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House – The Runaway Franchise Podcast

AAAAAaaAAAaaAAaaAAAaaAaHhhHHhhh! Is what the Runaway Boys screamed in unison, slapping their hands to their faces as they watched 2002’s Home Alone 4. In no way do we suggest you watch this movie. If this podcast has any purpose to it, it is to watch the unwatchable so you don’t have to. Listen to our tale of misery and woe…Merry Christmas…

In the lobby:

On a more positive note…Ed, Dom and Tom discuss their favorite movies of 2017.

Show notes:

Check out Tom’s…custom Baywatch toy box…it’s got his name on it and everything…

040: Home Alone 3 – The Runaway Franchise Podcast

Ed, Dom and Tom are stuck at home with the chicken pox! So, they decide to pop in the VHS player 1997’s Home Alone 3! As you would think would happen 3 movies in, the Runaway boys were getting cranky and itchy which was not looking good for this latest installment…BUT! An arch of lightning blasted from their television set creating a portal for a Parrot driving a friggin’ RC car delivering them Kenosha Itch Kicker cream and a Little Caesar’s pizza party! Listen in for the audio equivalent of a Pizza Party! Or else…

In the lobby:

Southern California has been hit with historically large and devastating wild fires. So many people have or are in risk of losing their homes and they need help! We ask that you donate what you can to RedCrossLA.org

PS: The Runaway boys were horrified and confused about the implications of Scarlet Johansson’s line “Alex slammed the toilet seat on his thing again!” that we want to know if this has ever or could ever happen in IRL?

Obviously send us stories about your “thing” being smashed by a toilet seat mishap on social media @RAFpodcast or email RunawayFranchise@gmail.com. We would love to read about your misfortune on our next episode!

039: Home Alone 2: Lost in New York – The Runaway Franchise Podcast

Ed’s back from abandoning the Runaway Franchise Family (he was sick, cut him a break, also this might be him editing this to cut himself slack) and so are the McCallister’s with 1992’s Home Alone 2: Lost in New York! The gang’s nostalgic memory runs through the traps of reality as their love of Talkboys does not reflect their feelings for this sequel. Things spiral further out of control as Ed starts composing the Imperial March with the Kenosha Kickers! Tune in to hear our peaks and valleys of our seasonal affective depression…

In the lobby:

Ed, Dom and Tom discuss their best and worst Christmases. It’s much more sad than being left alone as your cool friends or family all go on a sick first-class flight to a sweet vacation.  Except Dom’s…he’s got all the good Christmases…
