After watching (and loving) YouTube Red's new series Cobra Kai, Shawn's wife Sarah decided to sit down and watch the original Karate Kid for the first time. In this episode, they talk about what works/doesn't work for them and their love of Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita and William Zabka. They'll also discuss Sarah's unique perspective watching Cobra Kai before The Karate Kid and how it affected her viewing experience, in addition to offering a brief review of Cobra Kai and explaining why everyone needs to check it out.
How Shawn has gone his whole life without seeing Point Break, he'll never know. The important thing is first-time guest host Aaron Prescott (Rest in Pictures Podcast) is a big fan and has provided Shawn the opportunity to see it for the first time. Along the way, they'll discuss why The Fast and the Furious franchise owes a great debt to the film, it's bromantic subject matter and whether or not Shawn enjoyed it as much as he hoped.
In this Between Takes episode of Missing Frames, Shawn Eastridge and his wife Sarah pass the time during their drive to Nashville to talk about their favorite road movies. In addition, they offer their reviews for new movies they've seen in theaters (A Quiet Place, Ready Player One) and their favorite new TV shows (LEGION!!).

Released in 1986, Blue Velvet was considered a return to form for David Lynch following his widely dismissed adaptation of Dune. It combined his surrealistic and horrifying imagery with scenes of idyllic suburban life and humor, making for an unforgettable viewing experience. The critical reaction was divided at the time of its release with Roger Ebert being particularly vocal about his dislike. Now it's seen as a modern masterpiece and one of the great American films of all time.
Shawn and his wife Sarah sit down for Sarah's first-ever viewing of the film. Along the way, they discuss Shawn's obsession with David Lynch, the film's stunning performances, its controversial subject matter and how it fits in with the rest of his filmography.

While it was dismissed upon its release in 1998, The Big Lebowski's reputation as a cult classic has only grown through the years, with many now considering it one of the Coens' finest works and one of the best comedies of all time. In celebration of the film's 20th anniversary, Lee Hutchison (Filibuster) has finally gotten around to watching it for the first time and graces Missing Frames with his presence once more to discuss whether it lived up to his expectations, his favorite moments and where The Big Lebowski ranks with the Coen Brothers' other works.
