Quick note: it sounds like, in some places, Paul has delayed reaction times. This isn't down to drink, it's down to a weird bandwidth issue that meant there was a gap of roughly three seconds between one saying something and the other hearing it. Because the show is recorded on Spike's side, Paul is the one that sounds slow.

0:00:00 - Master Paul Higginbotham and Sir Spike Nesmith The Third discuss their hot weather no-booze drinks.

0:02:24 - Light Week In Stuff for Paul including the first episode of the elusive but comprehensive series "Hollywood", a series that takes roughly as much time to watch as it takes to see three Kurosawa movies; nine years. Also, a third week of cartoon violence and - this time - some freshly restored racism with the "Tom and Jerry" DVD set. C'mon chile!

0:08:27 - Spike's moving house, so there's little time to watch any Stuff. He finally got his grubby mitts on an entirely legal copy of the US "Life On Mars". Be warned, there's a spoiler alert for the UK spin-off "Ashes To Ashes". Not that it matters, given how good it wasn't. Imagine, though. History on The History Channel, in the shape of "American Pickers"!

0:24:50 - Next week's topic is revealed - what movies or scenes in movies always bring a lump to your throat. In other words, what are the great weepies, or the so-called weepies that leave you cold?

0:32:08 - This week's question: what was the last big summer blockbuster that you were *really* excited about?


As Mr T would say, "please keep in touch with the show and let us know your thoughts, not only on whatever subject we happen to be covering at the time, but also on past topics, if you happen to be listenng to a previous show. Fool."
