For this special Reservoir Dogs 25th Anniversary episode, Rob Daniel and myself are joined once more by Ian Bird. You’ll remember Ian from his wise words on the JFK podcast.
Together we dissect Quentin Tarantino’s sensational debut, discussing its strengths, characters, themes and controversial use of language. And that whole “Who Shot Nice Guy Eddie?” thing.
The three intrepid podcasters place the movie in the overall picture of Tarantino’s career and discuss Tarantino’s cinematic legacy.

Or Joss Whedon taking the QT baton and running with it into fantasy realms rather than crime? These thoughts are more are given their day in court…
While making room for tangents including Doctor Who and Wayne Wang’s Smoke. It’ll all make sense.
Okay ramblers, let’s get rambling…
