Episode 16 – Kommissar Rex – Der Puppenmörder – 1996

My dear friend Alex returns (last seen on The Rekottaning) to discuss this gem of Austrian tv. A head-to-head between a menacing mass-murdering puppet repairman (played by Christoph Waltz) and the good inspector with his always entertaining side-kick Rex, who always steals the show. This is one for the ages and FFPÖ wants to thank you all for a great year and an even better 2017!

The episode we discuss can be watched right now for free on here:

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 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 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.

Thanks to Lex Morales to co-host this show and follow him on:

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.

Episode 8 – Space Patrol Orion – Hüter des Gesetzes – 1966

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 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.

Episode 4 – Ein halbes Leben (Half a Life) – 2009

A moving movie where the inability to move on drives the plot. Nelly and Paul try to give other actors next to Josef Hader a chance but his saddening appearance and demeanor just overshadow everything, including the horrifying and complicated matter that this film presents us with. Definitely not for the faint of heart.
