Latest Episodes

Episode 013 - Die Hard

In our series (season?) finale, a desperate Max barricades himself in the Vault in a last ditch effort to get his job back. As security attempts to break down the door, we’ll look at the original notes on Die Hard, which question Hans Gruber's intentions. This episode is Air Force One meets Adaptation in what might very well be the end of the podcast. Unless we come back for a cash grab sequel. With a Vengeance.

Episode 013 - Die Hard

Episode 012 - Casablanca

On the season (series?) finale, the future of Hollywood development hangs in the balance as we look at a script that takes a love story and turns it into the fate of the free world. This episode will answer all your questions: Will Max finally quit Hollywood and go back to law school? Who wrote the Roger Goodell script? How did Caleb get hired? What year is this? Who is down in the hatch? Who shot Mr. Burns? And what’s in the box?!? And if this is the end of the road, at least we’ll always have Paris.

Episode 012 - Casablanca

Episode 011 - Alien

Due to the events of last week, we are unable to record a new episode. Instead, we flashback to the very first episode of Classic Coverage, recorded five years ago when Max first started as an unpaid script reader. Does Alien's simple plot outweigh its lack of character development? How the hell did Prometheus get made? And do all prequels inherently suck? Find out in our prequel episode!

Episode 010 - Road House

The production company is losing its deal at the studio, sending the podcast into turmoil. But since it might be last call, let's take a look at the savage studio notes for Road House. Also, the interns form a dystopian band of nomads and Max makes an ultimatum.

Episode 010 - Road House

Episode 009 - The Godfather

Is The Godfather a comprehensive look at a mafia family? Or is it a script that is far too long with too many characters? Meanwhile at the studio, Max reads a script with a truly complicated and unlikeable protagonist: Roger Goodell. This episode is MOST DEFINITELY NOT SPONSORED BY Stamps.com.

Episode 009 - The Godfather

Episode 008 - The Matrix

As we learn the shocking truth behind last week's sponsor, we examine a script that forces us to question reality (as well as what the hell "We move into bullet time" means when included in a spec script’s scene description).

Episode 008 - The Matrix

Episode 007 - When Harry Met Sally

Can men and women be friends? And is that enough conflict to drive a feature film? Meanwhile at the studio, we ponder the death of the romantic comedy and this show finally gets a sponsor! And is Caleb the intern actually just a figment of Max's imagination? All that and more this week on Classic Coverage.

Episode 007 - When Harry Met Sally

Episode 006 - Pulp Fiction

After a mysterious "incident" shuts down the production of Thaw, we're back in the copy room, reading script for little to no money. This week, as we attempt to stomach our way through Max Landis' latest seven-figure spec sale, we dive into the vault and look at another experimental script: Pulp Fiction.

Episode 006 - Pulp Fiction

Episode 005 - Cocktail

Did Max get fired for leaking trade secrets? Will Thaw go into production? Was there anything redeemable about Cocktail other than the song "Kokomo?" All that and more will be revealed on the season (possibly series) finale of Classic Coverage.

Episode 004 - The Shawshank Redemption

This week we look at The Shawshank Redemption, a script that tells instead of shows due to excess voiceover narration. Meanwhile, Max is about to get fired for a crime he didn't commit. Or maybe he did. It's unclear.
