Dave and Mary Ellen have watched one more movie before The Americans start back up in March. The wonderfully cast Sneakers starring Robert Redford, Ben Kingsley and Sidney Poitier. This early '90s movie is still relevent today as it deals with hacking, cryptography and general sneakyness. Hope you enjoy it!

Dec 4, 2016

Dave and Mary Ellen, while still patiently waiting for Americans episodes have gotten into the Christmas spirit and watched the "Mission Impossible-style" Christmas movie, Arthur Christmas. We discuss Christmas tradition, family business dynamics and what Dave would look like with a mustache.

Join the discussion with us at www.facebook.com/thejenningsbasement or email us at thejenningsbasement@gmail.com.

Dave and Mary Ellen get VERY SERIOUS about a tough subject. The most famous spouses in the spy world, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. We suggest you steal someone's HBO password and watch this documentary. If nothing else is a great conversation starter.

Sep 25, 2016

Dave and Mary Ellen thought that since The Americans took a subtle nuanced approach to the issues surrounding biological weapons and deadly viruses, that we'd check out a movie that did the same. Unfortunately we picked Outbreak. There is one thing that this movie is infected with, and that is the 90s. We got in depth with this one, and we discussed Dick Tracy's car, an angry attitude towards fish, and a disease that targets  voluminous  curls. We highly suggest you watch this movie, enjoy this bonus episode, Outbreak.
