The show features a rotating panel of guests who love movies. This week’s Hooligans¬†included David Cain, Jason Haugland, Jessica O’Shea, and Bryan O’Connor, in addition to English.

The Reel Hooligan Movie Madness tournament began with 32 movies, which were divided into four regions, Skippers, Rivals, Underdogs, and Legends. Each Hooligan voted, winners advancing. If a tie occurred, then and only then would Tim vote.

“Major League” claimed the title as the BEST. SPORTS. MOVIE. EVER. with a 3-1 vote over the 1984 classic, “The Karate Kid” after defeating “The Sandlot” in the tournament semi-finals. “Karate Kid” earned a spot in the final by upsetting #1 overall seed “Rocky” 3-1 in the semis.

Originally released in 1989, “Major League” was written and directed by Academy Award winner David S. Ward (“The Sting” 1973). The film proved to be a major break through for stars such as Charlie Sheen and Wesley Snipes and became a cult-favorite providing memorable scenes and lines of incredibly witty dialogue that has been quoted for years and years.

The Tim and Lo Show had a short run of podcasting in the spring of 2014. My co-host and traveling companion for this show was Lonita Cook.

If you want to listen to some of our episodes, you can find them on iTunes under THE TIM AND LO SHOW. You can download episodes for free.

The highlight of our one and only season had to be the show we did from Planet Comic Con in KC (episode 01.06 The Big Con). Our guests included Marlon Wayans, Darryl DMC McDaniels, and a ton of cool KC celebs and filmmakers.
