Episode Air Date: August 12, 2013
Film Release Date: June 6, 1986

Released just a few months after the space shuttle Challenger tragedy in 1986, this star-studded movie had the misfortune of timing and a few other flaws, which the Dorks take to task in this week's episode.

Though we did learn the meaning of "thermal curtain failure," and we got a look at a very young Leaf Phoenix (aka Joaquin Phoenix), the big-screen debut of Tate Donovan, and Tom Skerritt's legendary mustache. Not to mention the well-intentioned, literal robot Jinx. With all these things going for it, why did this movie just not cut it? We explore in this week's podcast.
