138: SFFCH – Strange Brew

138-strange-brew

This week, Jamie brought us Strange Brew (The Adventures of Bob and Doug McKenzie), a Canadian drunk comedy from 1983 with a plot that defies understanding or even description. (Oh, how we tried.)  After an opening salvo of dodgy Canadian impersonations by the males of SFFCH (Abi, being of Canadian heritage, chose not to participate) everyone concerned gets down to the knotty business of trying to understand comedy that was meant for an audience in a time and a place so very remote from SFFCH HQ with mixed results. But who liked what and why? Listen now to find out.
