We kick off Episode 14 talking about pedophiles (paedophiles if you’re a Brit), religion, battered women, famine, getting chased by nutters, charities, and finally our exclusive sponsorship deal with BMW! So it’s all sunshine and light in this one!

Here’s that billionaire song that Mat attempted to sing…not sure how Mat would do on any of the Idol Factory type shows, but clearly this guy is a winner:

What is it with Top 40 music these days? It’s utter crap, innit?!

So here’s a joke interlude:

In a deeply rural part of the country, a gas/petrol station is struggling to sell fuel, so the owner has a sign that says ‘FREE SEX with fill-up’. A customer pulls in, fills up and goes inside to ask for his free sex.

The owner says ‘Pick a number, and if you guess right you get the free sex.’ The customer says, ‘OK…seven!’ The owner says, ‘Sorry, the number was five, you’ll have to try next time.’

A couple of weeks later, the same customer drives up with a friend in the car, fills up and goes inside. The owner tells him the same thing, and this time the customer guesses three. ‘Nope, sorry, the number was four today – just one number off!’

The customer goes back to his car and tells his friend, ‘You know what? That free sex offer is rigged, there’s no way that guy gives away free sex.’

The man’s friend says, ‘No, that’s not true actually – my wife won free sex twice last week!’

We’ve shortened it a bit from the original place we found it on Reddit.com

Oh, this was a tough one, Porridge fans! As the Germans say it was a difficult birth, this episode. With various planets aligning against us, we had to  improvise…quite a bit…just to get this week’s episode out before hittin’ da clubs on the weekend. So excuse the sound quality and any weirdness in this one, but we still liked it and, well, we spent quite a while editing the damn thing so you’re going to sit down, listen to it and enjoy it, alright!?

The first big news in this episode is our new sponsor, wanting to tout their upcoming electric car!

How Mat is going to fit his kids Tristan Nigel and Orson Quadrillius in this on the school run we’re not quite sure yet, but imagine what it’ll look like with massive DP stickers all over it!

As Frank talks about his goals, he mentions that he wants to complete a marathon, so of course Mat asks if Frank will be wearing his homemade sandals made in the style of the ‘running Indians of Mexico’:

Your guess is literally as good as ours.  (Seriously, there are native Indian guys in Mexico that run ultramarathons in these)

For anyone unfamiliar with the C. Thomas Howell comedy/rom-com classic ‘Soul Man’, check out the IMDb info for it here. It’s one of the most recent movies you can say ‘they would never make that these days’.

Classy, innit?

Finishing up with the goals we’ve got, Mat’s Twitter account is @MatMcCallum and Frank’s is @krushgroove, and Frank’s blog/site can be found at sheepfrenzy.com if you can stand to actually READ a website 😛

That ‘One’ is spelled out not to be pretentious, but to just be posh. Is there any difference, though? We’re not sure.

This is the first of the much-anticipated DP Films series, which is going to show how Mat and Frank work on ideas for a short film (from 5-15 minutes or so). It’s not a movie review show, it just kind of tracks the DP Films progress in the making of ‘film shorts’, as ‘we in the business’ calm them. So this one is a bit windy with plenty of banter, but it is about us making movies, basically.

It’s a long one (just over 50 minutes) but it is the first in the series and there’s a lot of challenging stuff to get through!

As for that director that didn’t want to have his name on a famous movie…that guy is named Walter Hill and the movie is Supernova, which Francis Ford Coppola was brought in to save. Then he was involved in writing and producing the third and fourth Alien movies, a series of which Frank is a big fan of…until it was screwed up by this guy. Anyway, check it out on Wikipedia, the last 2 paragraphs.

And here’s that said bastard who is the fan of the Japanese electropop girl trio Perfume, doing his now-infamous ‘Happy Birthday Kashiyuka !!’ video


(somehow I don’t think the recently re-uploaded video with notes on the bottom will wipe the craziness clean!)

Unfortunately this guy uses the pseudonym ‘Frank Evins’, which is just terrible because all the strangest people on TV are called ‘Frank’…but we’ll roll with it. Want to know more? Check out the story on Know Your Meme.

Eventually, Mat and Frank get down to business and read the outline for what might be the first-ever DP script…

Just a warning! It is dark. And we mean Dark with a capital ‘D’. Like…DARK.

Is it too much? Is it too dark? Is it just a few steps beyond?

We’re not really sure. You guys tell us!

Just a final note: We LOVE gays! We don’t like pedos! (‘paedo’ in the UK)

And we like these ‘Sassy Gay Friend’ videos from Second City!

We’re spending the night at Mat’s house in this show! We get started with some cider and a bitter, then get the ball rolling with Japanese showers, then we move on to Mat’s cat, other less-living cats, Mat’s kids, child abuse and other insignificant matters.

Frank’s drink of choice: full pints of pear cider, he likes his drinks sweet!

Mat is the taller pear

As for Mat’s choice, John Smith’s Yorkshire Bitter…well it’s all about plain speaking, as you can see below

The original TV ads

The much more recent Peter Kay ads

 

And finally here’s  Mat’s home address in Google Street View

We’ve got a special New Year’s welcome to all of the Porridgistas out there!

To kick things off for 2011, we’ve got discussions about dead relatives, diseases we’d like to get, cricket (that strange British game that’s about as boring and pointless as baseball), Mat rants about sports, Frank shares a story about getting pegged in the head with a baseball, and finally we get into our brand-new-for-2011 Recommendations portion of the show!

We’re also celebrating the fixing of our downloads for iTunes and RSS subscribers, which is actually a very good thing for us.

Curious about cricket?

Well, if you’re British you’re either fanatical about it, or you just couldn’t care any less about it whatsoever.

Here’s the stupid Ashes cup that literally tens of people go crazy for:
