Well, folks, it’s that time of year.  Lovers are strolling arm-in-arm through Central Park.  Cupid is lounging atop a cloud, his quiver well-stocked.   Godiva is ramping up their chocolate production and tightening their credit card security policies.  Roses are being sold in tents in the parking lots of grocery stores.  Edible chalk hearts are being exchanged.  But most telling of all, it’s time for Whatcha Gonna Do: The Hulk Hogan Movie Podcast’s annual Valentine’s Day episode – this year released 6 days after Valentine’s Day.  

In this episode, we’ll be exploring perhaps the most romantic scenes from the original No Holds Barred script, written by Dennis Hackin.  We've got everything you’d want – a brutal fight, a weight lifting session, an inexplicable corporate meeting, and of course the main event: the long-awaited romance between professional wrestler Ripper and a woman he’s worked with on a diaper commercial.  You’ll laugh. You’ll cry.  You’ll fashion a weapon out of a length of steel pipe.  And most importantly, you’ll see love in its truest form.  Just make sure your bed won’t break.

And as always, we cover a wide range of other romantic topics, including the Mapplethorpe exhibit, automobile safety, enemas, haunted forests, George Jones, backhand strikes, incest, Mickey Goldmill, McGyver, Chris Vaughn, Zach Randolph, Matrix spoilers, undershirts, Holiday Inn, and toxic shock syndrome.  Don’t miss it.

This week we’re back in the No Hold Barred script to discuss two of the more bizarre scenes from the movie – the diner robbery and the hotel room shared by Ripper and Samantha N. Moore.  Overall, the final versions of these scenes in the movie are basically unchanged from the original draft of the script written by Dennis Hackin.  However, by examining a few of the key additions to the final version – as written by Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon – we believe we are able to confirm a few of the stranger attitudes and biases at the heart of this legendary screenwriting duo – attitudes we could only speculate on before.  Also, given how little these scenes changed overall in the final version, we are able to attribute many of their stranger elements to Dennis Hackin (a.k.a. Hack) himself, in particular from his depiction of everywoman Samantha N. Moore.  While we may never arrive at a complete picture of Hack, we believe that our careful study of his work is shedding new light on this revered but mysterious American figure. 

And in addition to analyzing the script, we give our definitive Super Bowl preview, cover some old diaper-centric business, confront a member of our listening audience, and cover such far-ranging topics as pasta, pomade, ZZ Top, Tyler Perry, potatoes, unusual deaths, Doc Holliday, the Bible, buttocks, murder-suicides, and Carrie Underwood.  Don’t miss it.
