While watching Staying Alive, guest Matt Carman and I noticed that Travolta walks by a young Philip Michael Thomas while wearing what is basically Don Johnson's Miami Vice duds. Cute homage, right? Except that Staying Alive came out in 1983 and Miami Vice didn't start until 1984. Freaky! So you can thank Staying Alive for predicting Miami Vice. But that's all you should thank it for.

This week trash cinema aficionado Matt Carman (I Love Bad Movies) joins me for a special episode I'm calling "(Bad) Movies My Friends Have Never Seen." Will Matt survive watching the notorious Stallone/Travolta joint Staying Alive for the first time?

Matt and I ponder whether Tony Manero is the worst character in popular fiction and try to make sense of his starring turn in the insane Broadway extravaganza Satan's Alley. Plus Matt shares his thoughts on the difference between a "good/bad" and "bad/bad" movie and we spot a Miami Vice homage a year before the debut of Miami Vice. Freaky!

Check out I Love Bad Movies, the zine that Matt does with his wife Kseniya Yarosh of the Bonnie and Maude podcast. Brooklynites will also want to check out the Brooklyn Zine Fest which they organize every year.

A taste of Satan's Alley.

Bob Zmuda's stories about Saturday Night Fever/Staying Alive screenwriter Norman Wexler are insane.

This week we get classy with actor/filmmaker Kelly Sebastian on the podcast to watch the Audrey Hepburn classic Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time.

Kelly talks about why she's avoided the movie over the years and notes some parallels between Holly Golightly and the character she plays in her new film Forever Into Space. We also swap stories about our time working at NYC video stores and reminisce about the days when everyone from Kim Gordon to Tara Reid used to rent VHS tapes. 

Check out Kelly in Forever Into Space, the new film she stars in and helped to produce. (Don't forget to like it on Facebook.)

Read her essay on the end of Kim's Video.

You can also follow Kelly on Twitter and visit her website to learn more about her work. Like, for instance, her excellent performance in the short film Young Stan
