On this weeks episode of Watch This w/Rick Ramos I continue with the great comedy teams focusing on The Three Stooges - Larry Fine, and the Brothers Howard; Moses "Moe" Howard, Samuel "Shemp" Howard, and Jerome "Curly" Howard. I sit down and talk great memories of discovering The Stooges on 1980's syndicated television as well as their lasting and critically underrated legacy. This week I also include a look at The Farrelly Brothers 2012 re-imagining The Three Stooges Movie, a film that should have been a horrible mistake but turned into an enjoyable, fun, and respectful experience.

On this weeks episode of WatchThis w/Rick Ramos I start a month-long look at Comedy Teams beginning with two of my favorites. Although Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor made only four films together they are recognized as one of the great cinematic comedy pairings. Ignoring their first film, Silver Streak, and their last, Another You, the focus is placed directly on 1980's Stir Crazy and 1989's See No Evil, Hear No Evil. I love both of these movies, and after watching them in preparation for the show, I have found so much more what I love in them. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed talking. Thanks for the continued support.
