Episode 16 - Oh, God! Book II

 Our 16th, and most terrifying, president.

Our 16th, and most terrifying, president.

It's a Forgotten Franchise Friday (assuming you choose to listen to this on a Friday) this episode, as Ali shows Jon the second installment in the once-quite-popular Oh, God! series. Ali gets serious for a moment. Jon does impromptu exegesis of George Burns' parable of the Kitten and the Lion and/or Tiger. Do both find religion? Isn't a movie released in 1980 essentially just a 70s movie? Also, Ali accidentally creates Jon's new favorite children's character.

Oh, God! Book II stars George Burns, Louanne, Suzanne Pleschette, the Former Mister Meredith Baxter-Birney, Mork's Father-In-Law, Captain Hook, Mrs. Poole, and The Lawyer From Kramer vs. Kramer. It was directed by Gilbert Cates, and written by a five-person committee including at least one Seaman, and like all George Burns movies, includes a motorcycle chase.
