The Shawshank Redemption / Chivas Regal 12

The Shawshank Redemption / Chivas Regal 12

Bob and Brad review director Frank Darabont's 1994 classic, The Shawshank Redemption. This movie is ranked #1 on IMDb's Top 250--above even The Godfather. But how does it hold up, and does it deserve that crown?

The guys break down how its near-constant presence on TV has helped shape the film's reception and public image. They also try to dig into whether there's a deeper meaning here, or if the movie wears its message on its sleeve.

Meanwhile, they move into Week 3 of the September of Scotch! This week they take a look at the world's second best-selling brand of scotch whisky, Chivas Regal, and sample the 12-year expression. How will it stack up against last week's mass-produced blended scotch, Johnnie Walker Black? The guys are split in their opinions
