On its fifth anniversary, Bob and Brad are rejoined by guest host Jordan McCain for a look back at 2014's Best Picture winner, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). They try their hardest to answer the question: is this movie pretentious, or is it a crowd-pleaser?
They also touch on its depiction of actors, theatergoers, critics, and audiences alike, and the role of satire in a dark comedy like this.
Meanwhile, they try a popular beer-barrel finished whiskey, Jameson Caskmates IPA, even though none of them enjoy IPAs. Will their love of whiskey redeem their dislike of bitter, hoppy flavor?
