I'm joined by my podcast comrades from the Alberta Advantage: Clinton, Joël and Karen, for a deep dive into the classic Canadian and Calgarian comedy franchise FUBAR! It’s been nearly 20 years since the first FUBAR film (2002) introduced us to the endearing headbangers Terry and Dean. In our discussion we appreciate FUBAR’s depiction of working-class life and its wicked humour. And of course, we ponder what it really means to give'r.
This is the first of two episodes dedicated to the FUBAR franchise. Keep your eyes peeled for our next release when we discuss the sequel, FUBAR 2 (2010), and the TV series FUBAR: Age of Computer (2017).
