One Junky Summer returns as we kick off our season-long retrospective of the best genre films of 1987! First up, the flick that redefined buddy cop cinema: Lethal Weapon. Sure, it's a spectacular, hilarious, and quotable action comedy...but it's also an intensely dark foray into the scarred psyche of Vietnam vets?!

Brian and Cargill delve into the darkness, the extended director's cut of the movie, and the cavalcade of actors who were offered the role of Riggs before Mel. Download, listen, and share before we all become too old for this s#%*!
