Episode 15 – Aufschneider (Sang chaud et chambre froide) – Teil 1 – 2010

Merry Christmas everyone, what better way to celebrate this wonderful season than to listen to a new episode of FFPÖ? Because nothing says Happy Holidays more than a super, super dark comedy made by the Austrian master himself, Josef Hader, in a co-production with ARTE. Organs get stolen, people get harassed, cars get smashed, alcohol is consumed and dialogue so cringy that your toenails will bend up, all in all the perfect complement for the season and Nelly and I are trying to give it appropriate frame.

Episode 14 – Space Patrol Orion – Deserteure – 1966

FFPÖ is back after from the States and we are glad to have Nelly amidst us once again. This is the first episode with new IMPROVED audio, so please, feedback would be much appreciated. We go back to the German version of Star Trek and look at the next episode, which has all the hallmarks of the TV-show, great dialogue, cool special effects, “menacing” robots and a charming captain, with a smile so bright, you can see it all the way to Alpha Centauri!

Episode 13 – Kommissar Rex – Ein perfekter Mord – 1994

Probably the most famous Austrian TV-Show of all time gets the FFPÖ treatment. That includes quips about dog obedience, 90s aesthetics, modern household appliances and good ol’fashioned sexism. My guest co-host is the great Andrea Hogan as my final US-based comedian and we go out in a bang!

Episode 12 – Funny Games – 1997

In this episode of FFPÖ I sit down with Pockets Graham, director, actor, writer and comedian to discuss Funny Games, the 1997 experimental horror movie directed by Michael Haneke. Pockets and I discuss the non existent soundtrack, the use of real film and white people being aggressively white to the point of stupidity being the real horror.

A big thank you to Pockets Graham for being the co-host:

Episode 11 – Im Keller (In the Basement) – 2014

The terrific Lex Morales joins me in this episode of FFPÖ to talk about the literally buried world of the Austrian soul. We explore the entertaining, thought-provoking and downright disturbing basements of Normal Joe and Jane and many, many questions pile up in this here episode.

Episode 10 – Das finstere Tal – The Dark Valley – 2014

For the 10th episode, we prepared something special, made in the US of A with a real New York comedian as my guest host Julianna D. Meagher, how exciting. We look at the 2014 break-out hit from Austria, The Dark Valley, an Austrian movie in the style of a western and we ask too many questions with too many answers in this behemoth of an episode.

Episode 9 – Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei – The Edukators – 2004

In a very special episode of FFPÖ we don’t have one American co-host but instead doubling down on the Austrian and we have a brand new guest co-host embodied by the funny and smart Florian Reichl and also a secret guest pops up, so stay tuned for our review of The Edukators, a movie from 2004 that revolutionized Austrian and German filmmaking and with a message that still rings true today.

In a new and very special episode I invite Scott Foster Harris (http://scottfosterharris.com/) to talk about bursting Lasers, inconvenient Robots, magnificent Hairdos, winning smiles and baffling dance moves, because we watched the 3rd episode of Space Patrol Orion!

Episode 7 – Das merkwürdige Verhalten geschlechtsreifer Großstädter zur Paarungszeit – 1998

After a long break our summer hiatus is over and we are back with a new and exciting episode of FFPÖ! Nelly and I sit back at the table to discuss this gem of German 90ness and ask: Who is this movie for? Can the music be more awesome? Who is the main character? Why is this movie such a hot mess? All this and more we try to answer in the 7th episode and we try our best.

Episode 6 – Space Patrol Orion – Planet außer Kurs – 1966

We continue our trek through the stars and those stars are aligned for a war, a star battle of sorts if you will, happens in this episode. Nelly and I apply our drunken senses to get to the core of this action-laden episode in less then 15 minutes and find nearly only good things to say.
