The boys wanted to turn things in a slightly different direction – instead of being reminded of how the world is out of control, Jon and Rob wanted to do a show based around “stuff that makes us feel good; just a pure conversation between friends to be shared”. So this episode is pretty much in free-form! However, there are a few items of note, so they wouldn’t be forgotten: the questionable “necessity” of a 6-CD boxset of R.E.M.’s Monster (naturally, for its 25th anniversary…); these box sets are excessive – not just R.E.M., but The Beatles, etc. A 2 CD set should be more than apt – collect the singles and B-sides, if they weren’t on the original album, etc. and make it complete. Also, movies re-boots, pathetic sequels or adaptations of T.V. shows to film shows there’s no original talent out there so this is all we get now. “Bad Boys For Life” and “Rambo: Last Blood”? Stop – please.
Otherwise, you’re in for a fun ride with Jon and Rob – and you will definitely catch the good-time vibe!
