We go tropical for episode 13 by submitting ourselves to 'The Blue Lagoon,' the 1980 coming-of-age shipwreck drama that starred a 14 year-old Brooke Shields, Christopher Atkins & Mr. Feeney from 'Boy Meets World.' Discussion includes what Brooke Shields' mom must have been thinking by putting her daughter in this movie, going through puberty on a deserted island, the suspension of disbelief, attending school dances with your cousin, the dangers of swimming nude near coral, Paddy Button The Soothsayer, the birds and the bees and passion-fruit sex, teaching your baby to swim, Albert Einstein hair and Morgan Freeman's wang. The movie's rated R but our podcast could pass for a hard PG-13. Seriously, kids. What do you expect from a movie in which the two main characters are nude most of the time?
