Just when we thought we'd covered every '80s high school movie, listener Jen treated her husband and us to "Three O'Clock High," a sleeper comedy with a lovable hero, a horny teacher, and a climactic fight.

"Three O'Clock High" got it right where lots of its peers got it wrong: Friends and siblings treat each other with genuine care. Each scene delivers on its punchlines. And Tangerine Dream's soundtrack actually makes the movie better.

In this episode, Big D mansplains what "short" means and wonders if Buddy Revell is the king of '80s movie bullies. Ash spreads crack-baby rumors and asks about planned fights. And Gene attacks a Karen. The Shat Crew also discusses whether it's become the "Family Guy" of podcasts and argues that Casey Siemaszko would have made a terrific Marty McFly.
