High and Low (Brow) – Series 3 Episode 7 – Day of the Woman

Posted on Aug 10, 2012 by | 8 comments

And we’re back! Once again James and I have taken a slightly extended furlough from High and Low (Brow) but we are back with a vengeance and this series penultimate episode. With that in mind we pull out more than a few stops as we dive head first into Day of the Woman, this episodes theme which focuses on the Russ Meyer classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and the Hong Kong camp martial arts extravaganza Naked Killer.

From there we have a new segment of cult favorite, James Gillham: Pop Culture Guru and then we move straight into the selection show and next episodes theme is most certainly outside of our wheelhouse. And knowing that, we bring in a special guest to help us navigate through such treacherous and hazardous ground. While this episode is a doozy, make no mistake, next episode could be our best ever. One bit of warning, I’m not quite sure what happened in the second half with the audio quality, but I am so hopped up on meds that I have given up trying to figure it out. Hopefully it isn’t too annoying.

If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for the podcast, or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, or simply want to tell James how awesome he is, feel free to email us and tell us your ideas. If you enjoy the show make sure to subscribe through iTunes or our RSS feed so you can catch every new episode. Also, please friend James on Facebook or Letterboxd. Because it will frighten and confuse him. And while you’re there be sure to join our relatively new Facebook group devoted to Where the Long Tail Ends.

One more thing, if you enjoy the show feel free to donate to it through PayPal in either a single installment or as a recurring donor. We’d love to upgrade some of our equipment and anything you donate will go directly towards us getting some decent mics and perhaps even pop screens that aren’t made out of cotton balls.

As always, thanks for listening!

Opening Theme – Adonai by Ennio Morricone
Closing Music – Scorpio 6 by Satan’s Pilgrims

  1. Hell yea!

  2. I’m surprised that James and Angela tried to sell Matt on Downton Abbey without mentioning that the creator of Downton Abbey wrote Gosford Park and brought along Maggie Smith. Especially since Matt mentioned being a fan of Altman. If nothing else, it shows how totally wasted Maggie Smith’s talents were in the Harry Potter films.

    • I haven’t seen Gosford Park yet, but having the creator of Downton Abbey as its writer explains why Netflix has been recommending it to me so much lately. Now it’s definitely on my list.

      • Yeah, I don’t think either of them knew that. I’ll admit though, that half the fun on ripping on Downtown Abbey was how upset it would make Angela.

        • We all know that you have some impishness in you Matt. Which is why Angela is a saint. Although, even though I count myself as a fan, Downton Abbey is certainly not a perfect show, particularly in Season 2 when it contrives a lot of circumstances for drama only to undo most of them by the end of the Christmas Special. If nothing else, Bates’ wife is a caricature on a show that at its best is much better than that.

          • I had similar feelings about the second season, Robert, and you’ve managed to articulate what I was feeling but left unexpressed in our discussion on the show.

            Still, I enjoyed the second season very much and am looking forward to the third. I guess it’s due for the USA in January 2013.

  3. James should review the Doritos Crunchy Taco from Taco Bell.

    • That would be fun to try out. I’m a big fan of Taco Bell’s menu, but I haven’t tried out the new Doritos Crunchy Taco yet. I don’t know what Matt has in store for the next installment of ‘Pop Culture Guru’ yet…
