About this Episode

In this episode, we pay homage to “Training Movies.” The movies where the bulk of the story involves the training of a group of varied misfits (sometimes who are little more than cliches or stereotypes) learning how to come together so they can graduate. We focused mostly on comedies, like Stripes, Police Academy, and Feds, but in the episode we realized that a lot of movies fall into this category, like Top Gun and Full Metal Jacket!
