Fifty! The big 5-0! Jon and Russ celebrate a milestone episode by covering Paul, Jamie, and a very special Mr. Wicker in Episode 4 of Season 3 of Mad About You (“When I’m Sixty-Four”)! They also dive HEAVILY into bicycle stabbings, Madman of the People, and monkey shows! They laugh a whole lot, which is the way it oughta be. Thanks for listening, rating, and reviewing, Reis-guys and Reis-gals. Enjoy!
Reis-guys and Reis-gals, it's minisode time! Turns out Helen Hunt was once a guest star on a very bizarre 1980s HBO show called THE HITCHHIKER. Do Russ and Jon spend about 45 minutes discussing one of the most bonkers episode of television Russ has ever seen? Does Jon think it's actually a visionary piece of art? You'll have to listen to find out, but the answer is yes! Know what? Listen anyway!
For better or for worse? For richer or poorer? Save those phrases for comics and movies, respectively! This episode of Mad About Mad About You is all about "Til Death Do Us Part" (Season Three, Episode Three). Jon and Russ join Paul and Jamie at the track, all set to say goodbye to the dearly departed Uncle Van. About what else do they speak? Why, Jon's hatred of Seinfeld ranking lists, train poker, and seeing dirty movies with one's parents. Are you trying to seduce us? If so, listen, rate and review!
Stay coolie cool, Reis-guys and Reis-gals! Russ and Jon are delighted to break down "Home" (Season Three, Episode Two), a tale of star-crossed lovers who also happen to be dogs. Will they find their true home, much as Paul and Jamie did? No! It doesn't really come up! Things that DO come up are the Fall of Ross Geller, the best way to smuggle a car's worth of cocaine, and the best way to structure a Rashoman scenario. "There's a place for you/Somewhere a place for you..." and it's here! Now! Listen and love!
Subway! Russ and Jon are ready to kick of Season Three of Mad About You with the 47th episode of Mad About Mad About You! Beat the heat and "Escape From New York" with the Paul and Jamie for a bit! Also discussed is the Best Night In Television History, the happiest pothole-filler in New York, and the Fabulous Finkel Brothers. Clamenza! Listen up!
Heeeeeeeeere's Russ and Jon and a mini-sode of Mad About Mad About You! (What a catchy saying!) Your intrepid hosts watched Paul Reiser's newest project "Theeeeeere's...Johnny!" and they're here to talk all about it. Do they love it? Do they just like it? Do they know how to pronounce the name? Listen! The answers are held within!
Two! Two! Two episodes in one! In this super-sized Mad About Mad About You, Jon and Russ discuss Season Two's two-part finale, "With This Ring" (Episodes 24 and 25). Paul loses his wedding band, and both Buchmans lift their ban on becoming parents! Other points of discussion include a beetle vault, bodega shopping, and the true nature of The Twilight Zone. A special one! Listen and love it!
"We ARE big! It's the pictures that got small!" Norma Desmond says that in SUNSET BOULEVARD, a movie which is not mentioned at all in this mini-episode of Mad About Mad About You! Russ and Jon talk with professional cinephile Marya Gates of TCM about the classic films of yesterday. Topics discussed include Laurel and Hardy, Peter Falk, and Vanilla Ice. Come down the rabbit hole with us! #50by50
Bonjour! Stop kissing us! We're trying to tell you about this week's Mad About Mad About You episode, "Up All Night" (Season Two, Episode 23)! Russ and Jon tackle an episode chock full of caffeine and Gomez Addams. They also discuss the story of Chris Gaines, the tedium of archaeology, and the loss of Louis Zorich. Lots of laughs inside! Enjoy them!
This week's Mad About You was fantaaaastic! Just fantaaaaastic! Jon and Russ welcome an old favorite back in Episode 22 of Mad About You's second season ("Storms We Cannot Weather").

Get your atlas and have some fun with us, Reis-guys and Reis-gals! Let's go!
