Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)

Ash and Steven are both sorely behind in their film education. Ash is a fanfiction writer and afficionado, Steven is a comedian and general purpose nerd and both are seeking to fill in the gaps in their essential viewing experiences, and sharing that 'new viewer' experience in Why Haven't I Seen This?, a movie review and discussion podcast for movie nerds and essentials-deficient alike!

Ash and Steven saw Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, as suggested by listener Eric O, this week. In addition to discussing this movie, we discussed: our criteria for selecting movies, what Deus Ex Machina really means, Steven sees the truth behind the future, torture devices, time travel, Steven further sees the secret genius of Bill and Ted, and Ashlee debuts "Sad Fanfiction Theatre", a new segment to the podcast.

Intro and Outro bumpers are "Beyond Reality" by Kevin MacLeod at

The movie breakdown music is "I Can't Break Away" by Big Pig.
