“A friend with weed is a friend indeed but a friend with gold is the best I’m told”
An episode dedicated entirely to the Leprechaun franchise? In what possibly became our most divisive recording session to date, we attempt to convey what this series of films are all about and try to get to the bottom of why anyone would watch them. In a room containing a true fan (Doug), a Leprechaun malcontent (Ted) and someone who watched the movies just to impress a girl (Tony), the subject became hotly debated.
It’s the story of a mythical creature of lore obsessed with a small pot of gold wreaking havok upon those who dare to cross him, told at a rural cabin, in a city, in Las Vegas, in space(!), in da hood, and in the da hood again – six films with a reboot on the way. In the absence of plot complexities, notable filmmaking techniques and striking performances, we discuss the ridiculous concept at the heart of it all. Whether you are a fan or not, stick around until Ted finally loses it and blows up at Anthony.
