About this Episode

Tony has been vaguely threatening Matt with the prospect of doing an episode on a classic PC point-and-click adventure game for months, and at long last he's followed through on that threat. This week he finally gets his way by introducing Matt to LucasArts' classic 1993 adventure game: Sam and Max Hit the Road. Based on the comic book by Steve Purcell, the game is a comedy noir about a smartmouthed dog and a rabbit who solve crimes as a pair of freelance detectives. Blending Saturday morning cartoon style and slapstick with a side-eye reverence for mid-century kitsch and roadside tourist traps, Sam and Max might be the reason Tony's sense of humor is what it is.
Joining them this week is Matt's brother, Jeff Ferrara. Jeff is one of the hosts of the Game Sharks Podcast, a weekly show where they discuss video game news, trends, and the stuff they're playing.
