It's Basically So Brave the Movie

A column article, Paranoid Video by: Dylan Garsee, Nick Hanover


No longer content to merely review television through the creative use of Friskies gifs and awkward jokes, Dylan Garsee and Nick Hanover have moved on to the internet airwaves, co-hosting CB's own television podcast, Paranoid Video.

Paranoid Video Episode 1.07- "It's Basically So Brave: the Movie"

This week's Paranoid Video is dedicated to pop culture's darker corners, namely reality tv. First up is a review of Bobcat Goldthwait's new anti-reality tv film God Bless America, which is nowhere near as entertaining as it should have been, apparently. But it does prompt a special guest appearance from Dylan's BFF, Sujana Chowdhury, who joins Dylan in a defense of reality tv. As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here

The God Bless America review/rant begins at 1:45 and ends at 29:32

And for good measure, here's the trailer for that Grace movie Dylan unfortunately summoned:

Dylan and Sujana talk reality teevee right after, starting at 30:04 and ending at 61:55. Here's that sloth clip Dylan brought up:


The theme song and namesake for the show is Total Control's excellent "Paranoid Video". The only bumper music we had this week was Das Racist's "You Can Sell Anything" because that shit was mad appropriate.


And in case you forgot what they look like, here are some visual representations of Nick and Dylan, courtesy of Emily Marie Palmer:
