Episode 73: Knocked Up and Judd Apatow Movies [VIDEO]

Published on June 7th, 2012

This week we look at the films of Judd Apatow, with a specific focus on Knocked Up. What does Seth Rogen say about a generation of slackers? Is he a good or bad representative for us? Why does he seem to think Munich was a good movie? All of these questions and more will be answered.

    well done boys. thoughts on the Apatow shows? Undeclared/Freaks&Geeks… i guess they are “failures” but are really good. that is, if you’re ok with a series ending with the main character running away to chase the Grateful Dead.

    I love them both, but James has seen neither because he’s the worst. I like the ending of Freaks & Geeks though – it’s very hippie and “the world is a wide open road for you to choose your own path on,” but I feel like that is a totally accurate way for somebody to look back on their high school years. I don’t remember if they knew they were getting cancelled when that was written, but I think it works kind of perfectly.

    (Also, Haverchuck eating a sandwich and watching television by himself is one of the most endearing, human scenes that I’ve seen.)

    yea, Haverchuk is the James Harden of that show. Not a starter, but makes a huge impact. And yes, that does make James the worst

    Nice work gentlemen. Apatow’s one and only character type captures the confused, underworked twenty-something really well. Fortunately that covers everyone I know so I’m happy.
    Looking forward to this weeks podcast. Hope you guys can get along.
