Show Notes

Car chases? Reluctant duos? Corruption? Murder?! It must be time for SHANE BLACK’S BUDDY COP SAMPLER! Logan and Andy figure out if they’re too old for this shit as they cover distinctive writer-director Shane Black by looking at three films that capture the best of his “buddy cop” style: 1987’s Lethal Weapon, 2005’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and 2016’s The Nice Guys. How does the subgenre evolve over time? Does Shane Black’s voice change creatively when he becomes a director? Did they just call that man “Gay Perry?” Find out on this pulpy new episode!
