Mike and Tracy fix movies and more so they don't suck so bad.

Put this thing in your head!
In this thing, the Bowling-Meginnis matrimonial partnership takes some decent or less than decent bit pop culture and submits it to a gentle but thorough de-sucking. There are more swears than one would expect, and Mike sometimes has a drink or two during. Unless you hate the idea of good-natured Midwesterns with an apparently solid romantic relationship, than you will also laugh a number of times. Perhaps the last sentence is misleading. You will not be headed to Lake Wobegon and all the boredom that entails. This thing is comfortable, intelligent, and if you care to you might learn a thing or ten from two very good writers and editors. I should note that Tracy is the best writing instructor I have ever had, and while I don't know her husband a number of people have said similarly excellent things to me about him. Anyway, enjoy or don't, but if you don't please refrain from holding these two wonderful people responsible for your inability to like good things.
