K&F Show Summary:

Note: In honor of Valentine’s Day 2024 we gave Bernie the keys to the show and told him to make a re-run episode! Listen in for a rundown of whatever Valentine’s Day stuff that Bern came up with….which is probably super duper weird, but kind of adorable too. Following that is a re-broadcast of our review of “Cleetus Falls in Love” from KF Episode 252. Godspeed. -Kibbe and Corndog 

Poor Cleetus makes the mistake of being #MeToo’d by Daisy Dukes, and his heart has to pay the price until she finally confesses to using her sexuality for personal gain. Poor Cleetus. But, love know no boundaries – and just like Cleetus we all have to take the high road and go on to date a bank teller anyway. This episode features Sheriff Little and is the second episode after the shift to the wide push bar General Lee. Also noted in this episode, no-one suffered from food poisoning and was stricken with vomiting and diarrhea for 4 hours straight.

K&F Show Summary:

K&F Show Summary: 49 year old Joe Pesci and 28 year old Marisa Tomei go to Alabama to defend a kid who accidentally stole a can of tune, then got charged with murder. This is the comedic story of the smart underachieving lawyer, his wicked-smart girlfriend, and his dippy younger cousin. It’s the take of New Yorkers that magically drive rust free 30-year old cars from state to state, looking for adventure and bringing justice to the masses.  all drive 30 year old rust free cars from New York, cross country, and make justice possible for the masses. Did I mention that the cousin is Karate Kid himself, Joe Maccio? And even better, this whole comedic genius movie is centered around the reality of the fact that a locking rear end is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than a one wheel wonder, but only if your smoke-show girlfriend teaches you that first. This one got Marisa Tomei an OSCAR and taught us all that no self respecting southerner eats instant grits. It may be Joe Pesci’s most likable character role ever and we’ll never get sick of listening to Marisa Tomei explain torque wrenches, posi-traction, and the stock ignition timing of a 327 Chevy.

K&F Show Summary:

January 2024 marks the 45th anniversary of the Dukes of Hazzard. “One Armed Bandits” is the first episode that started it all, and one of the 5 filmed on location in Georgia before it would be relocated to California for the remainder of the series. For purists, the first 5 episodes (and this in particular) is as good, gritty, and as pure as it gets. For me… it’s just that weird one they would show in re-runs that was so different than all of the “real” ones from the later seasons I was used to. (I like campy Hollywood-ized versions of stuff.)

Anyway, this is the episode where Bo and Luke play Robin Hood – and commit a criminal act against a criminal (Boss Hogg) – to give to the poor. This proves the statement that two wrongs can make a right, apparently. Bo and Luke meet with Cooter in the Starsky and Hutch Torino along with Blake Lively’s dad, burglarize a truck filled with slot machines, place them around town, give the proceeds to the poor, and give the credit to Rosco, helping him get re-elected. Most of the scenes from the opening credit for the run of the show come from this episode and we get to settle once and for all which General Lee of the 3 used in this episode….really came first.

K&F Show Summary: 

This is the Dukes of Hazzard episode that shows in America, democracy still works.. until the next episode when democracy will be forgotten, because in Season 2 long-lasting consequences only last exactly one episode. Smoke-show married mom “TC Rodgers” returns to Hazzard to run for county supervisor, a job held by Boss Hogg that has a number of privileges, including being the probation officer for Bo and Luke Duke. Bo and Luke help the smoke-show mom because 1) it’s the right thing to do, 2) they think she’s a smoke show, and 3) they do not know she’s a married mom. In helping her win an election they also commit several FCC violations and perform electronic miracles by communicating via CB radio to people on telephones! And you know in the Blue Brothers with they put a loudspeaker on the Bluesmobile?  Well that bit came from this episode too. Anyway, the Smokeshow wins the election, her husband and kid show up, and in a week we’ll never hear from her again….just like the Iowa caucus as of today. See you in 4 years, losers.

========================================

K&F Show Summary: We are back for 2024! Unfortunately, the first show of the year for us will kick off with a memorial tribute to the late great Cale Yarborough. Cale passed away on Dec 31, 2023. He was an ironman in NASCAR certainly, but many of us met him initially due to his guest starring roles during Season 2 and Season 7 of the Dukes of Hazzard.

Instead of re-reviewing both of these episodes we decided to dedicate this episode to telling the life story of Cale himself. (Full links to both of his episodes are below, and we encourage you to listen to them as well.)

There  will be facts here that some of you may know, but many of us didn’t. He was the first ever three-in-a-row NASCAR champion, a record only met (and then broken) by Jimmie Johnson. He won four Daytona 500’s, inclyding two back to back in 1983 and 1984. He pioneered CBS-TV’s use of the John Porter-Peter Larson in-car camera that could tilt and pan, footage of which was used in the Season 7 episode he appeared on during the Dukes.

He won the 1983 Daytona 500 in a backup car from a Hardees fast-good restaurant….after flipping his new-for-1983 Monte Carlo in qualifying at 204MPH. He taught himself how to fly an airplane. Possibly most famously, during the first ever flag-to-flag showing of the Daytona 500 on TV, he and the Bobby Allison got in a terrible fight after Cale and Donnie Allison (Bobby’s brother) wrecked for the win on the last lap.

RIP Cale.

K&F Movie Summary: Christmas Vacation

The last real family man Clark Griswold himself takes on Christmas. When I saw this movie in the theater in 1989 I was the age of Rusty. Now, I’m the age of Clark. I can relate to Clark….I love the lights, I underestimate a lot of things, and like Clark I just want to give my family the perfect Christmas. This movie spawns from the writing genius of John Hughes and the comedic delivery of Chevy Chase and Randy Quaid. Not only does it have the famous scene with the RV dumping into the street sewer, but it has all of the scenes that you can’t help but watch over and over again! Clark drives under a log truck, then gives a speech in the mall about logs that’ll leave you not seeing the line, his idiot cousin in law shows up to annoy him to death, but that huge beastly bulging man ends up bringing him the gift that Clark really needed – his Christmas bonus, and perspective on what really matters. This one is a mele kaliki mai of a good one and short of having the Baby Jesus in a manger, it has everything else I love about Christmas.

K&F Movie Summary:

Two kids who have lost their dad to tragedy are on the very edge of tragedy themselves…the tragedy of not believing! Teddy the older brother is turning to crime, and Katy the younger sister is innocent. They catch Santa in the act at their house, jump in his sleigh, scare the bejesus out of him, lose the reindeer and the presents, crash the sleigh, steal a red 2009 Dodge Challenger, jump it, end up in jail, then a chop shop, and then have to get it all back together by Christmas morning or the world explodes. Even worse, during the chaos they also lost Santa’s magic hat, which is the think that makes the sleigh fly! At the end though they make it just in time to Save Christmas and Santa finally reveals (in the coolest of Kurt Russell moves) that the hat was a ruse. As Santa Claus himself could (of course) fly the whole time and the whole crazy night was to show Teddy – who was suffering from the loss of his dad – how regain the belief in something himself, and something far bigger. If you’re only in it for the cars, the Challenger shines wonderfully. We believe Four Star Motorsports did the prep….and we THINK we have identified the Canadian stunt driver too!

K&F Show Summary: 

Note: this is a rebroadcast of our Cannonball Run 2 review from KF Episode 250. Enjoy!

To commemorate our 250th episode we bring you Cannonball Run 2. By today’s standards it’s crass, racist, sexist, and a hilariously offensive automotive escape from reality. Back then though, it just was a crass yet hilarious automotive escape from reality. It stars everyone fun and funny from 1984 as you would expect from Burt Reynolds to Don Knotts to Frank Sinatra. If you liked the first Cannonball Run you’ll love this one….because it’s the same movie. Again. The Rigatoni’s and Fettuccine are in the mob, people pretending to be sheiks only because they have big noses, and John Schneider’s personal Lamborghini Countach makes an appearance with Catherine Bach! The cars are as big as the stars and they do what cars do best: slide and fly. This movie was hated by Siskel and Ebert because they hated movies that don’t make you think. But we don’t need to think. We never did. 10-Stars.

K&F Show Summary: 

Happy Hazzard-o-ween! This isn’t a specifically dedicated Halloween episode….but it may as well be. Whilst Bo and Luke are hiding from Rosco they get naked and go skinny dipping…leaving their clothes in the General Lee. Seconds later the General is stolen by two crooked gamblers who jump the car (and the clothes) in the pond. Rosco and Enos assume it was Bo and Luke all along, find their clothes, assume they were dismembered, and hijinks ensue when Boss frames them for theft of ….something. Doesn’t matter what. Anyway, to clear themselves they pretend to still be dead and trick Rosco into believing their spirits inhabit the General Lee, which now glows in the dark and appears to drive by itself. Wrongs are righted and it’s nice, funand spooky Halloween episode all around.
