Re-Release: Actor Vernon Wells (Commando/Mad Max 2/Innerspace) When it comes to movies you aren't supposed to be rooting for the bad guy, but how could I not root for this week's guest Vernon Wells? Vernon played legendary bad guys in Mad Max 2 as Wez and in Commando as Bennett. Vernon has quite the origin story because he had ZERO interest in being on camera, he wanted to be behind it. Luckily a director stuck him front and center, the rest is history. Of course, we talked about Weird Science, Joel Silver, Arnold Schwarzenegger, his start in acting, his love for being behind the camera, and so much more. We talked about Commando a lot because his role as the villain Bennett is quite legendary to Jamie and me. Enjoy this amazing chat
This is a video interview you can watch at sequelsonly.com/vernonwells.

This should be our last Re-Release sequel lovers, my son is due to come home soon, so then Jamie and I will be back on our sequel-watching adventure.

Watch Mad Max 2 on HBO Max.

Re-Release: Jaws 2 Enjoy this week's Re-Release of Jaws 2. Not too much longer til new episodes are out for your earholes to enjoy.

This week we are talking "Jaws 2". "Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water...." is the perfect tagline for the 1978 sequel to Jaws because this shark is on a mission in this one. Jamie sees a lot of similarities between the shark and Jason Voorhees and Doug couldn't get over how bad the teens were at sailboating. Also, you were in for a treat when the actor who plays the Mayor is on the poster.

Re-Release: Production Designer Joe Alves(Jaws/Close Encounters of the Third Kind/Escape From New York) Hey, sequel lovers, Doug here. We are taking a little detour on our sequel-watching journey for me to settle in with my family's new little addition, but that doesn't mean we don't have anything for you. We are going to pick a few sequels from our 1st year to Re-Release because many of you probably haven't gone back that far in our catalog, which we understand since we have over 220 episodes. Enjoy and we will be back soon with some EPIC sequels.

Jaws. Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Escape From New York. This week’s guest played a huge part in all of these films and is also our first oscar-nominated guest and BAFTA Winner (British Oscars), Joe Alves. Joe is a legend in the film industry who has worn many hats. Art Director, Producer, Production Designer, and Director.

Friday the 13th: A New Beginning This week we are talking "Friday the 13th A New Beginning" which is one of the most controversial of the series and a lightning rod for opinions from fans. This is our 6th Friday the 13th and we had a blast discussing it. We talked about some of the behind the scene nuggets we read about, our dream of a prequel about Ethel and JR, those damn enchiladas, Violet's dance moves, THAT ending, and so much more.

The next sequel that will be discussed is The Purge Anarchy. This is the only Purge movie I have seen in the series and man it had an awesome cast. Frank Grillo, Carmen Elojo, and the late Michael Kenneth Williams. It wasn't what I was expecting and loved it. For it, I chatted with Actor Jasper Cole. Jasper has been an actor for years and is now the go-to bad guy that you have seen in "MacGruber" and so much more. Jasper was a sketch performer for The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, was in Jason Takes Manhattan, and has had guest spots on classics like "Married w/ Children", "Everybody Hates Chris", and more. Jasper is the opposite of the bad guy he plays on screen and had great stories from his career.

Actress Melanie Kinnaman (Pam Roberts in Friday the 13th A New Beginning) The next sequel we are reviewing is "Friday the 13th A New Beginning” and for it, I interviewed our first final girl from the franchise, Actress Melanie Kinnaman who played "Pam Roberts". Melanie talked about her journey to being a final girl that started in western Massachusetts with a stop along in NYC where she was a dancer and then started acting in plays. She even played "Cheryl Ladd" in a Saturday Night Live sketch about the "Battle of the Network Stars" back in the late 70s then landed a role on General Hospital followed by some commercial work. Melanie talked about getting Friday the 13th A New Beginning, a role she had in "Best of the Best" starring Eric Roberts that got changed, upcoming projects, and lots more.

Piranha II The Spawning This week we are talking "Piranha II The Spawning" and this just so happens to be our second James Cameron-directed flick this year... YEP, James Cameron directed this one, well 75% of it until he was fired for taking too many shots. For this one, we brought back our buddy Nick, who has helped us make sense of Munchie, Ghoulies, and more. Nick came prepared with some behind the scene stories and even noticed some parts of Piranha II that would show up in later James Cameron flicks. Piranha II had us discussing flying fish, boating a boat, an odd relationship with Anne and her son, dynamite fishing, and more.

The next sequel that will be discussed is a Friday the 13th even though we don't have any more Friday the 13ths this year and we are doing Part V: A New Beginning. This movie is the Halloween III of the Jason Voorhees saga because it tried something new that a lot of fans love and hate, it's quite the lightning rod. I was lucky enough to interview the Final Girl from it, our 1st Friday the 13th Survivor, Pam Roberts herself actress Melanie Kinnaman. Melanie talked about growing up in Boston, becoming a dancer in NYC, doing broadway and off broadway, her big-time commercials she did, landing Friday the 13th, a wild story about "Best of the Best", and more. I loved talking to Melanie about her career and we had a lot of laughs.

Actress & Singer Carole Davis (Mannequin/Piranha II/The Flamingo Kid) The next sequel we are reviewing is "Piranha II: The Spawning” and for it, I interviewed Actress, Singer, and Activist Carole Davis. Carole grew up with her first love of singing where she was singing all over the world, but then after going to an audition just to support a friend, she was called in to audition and got it. The movie didn't matter because she chose most of her roles based on where they were being shot. Carole was in so many great movies like Mannequin, The Flamingo Kid, The Shrimp on the Barbie, and more. But, I also enjoyed hearing about her singing career which includes stories involving Prince, getting the job as singing the end credit song for "Love Potion no. 9" (I linked it below for you to listen to because it's awesome), and more. Amazing chat!

The Last Sharknado: It's About Time This week we are talking "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time" which I went thinking this was the 3rd film in the series, but sadly mistaken. This is a sequel that took a sorta joke and turned it into a franchise that people love, Jamie not so much. We discussed the main plot of the movie is wrong, the time traveling, the many borrowed movie quotes, Dee Snider crushing it, and so much more. These sharknados seem to follow Fin and the gang, but you be the judge.

The next sequel that will be discussed next is "Piranha II: The Spawning" which is directed by James Cameron. This movie got me the chance to chat with an actress who loved in Mannequin and The Flamingo Kid, Actress Carole Davis. Carole talked about how she sorta accidentally got into acting, her amazing singing career that includes singing the end title credits for "Love Potion no. 9" starring Sandra Bullock plus a story involving Prince that you'll have to hear to believe.

Actor Patrick Labyorteaux (Summer School/Heathers/Ski School) The next sequel we are reviewing is "The Last Sharknado: It's About Time” and I got to interview Actor Patrick Labyorteaux. Patrick and I connected on Twitter when I was talking about his character from a sequel we covered a few months back in "Ghoulies go to College" and he replied! Patrick was a blast to chat with about his origin story, being a child actor, reinventing himself as a jock, Summer School, voiceover work, and more. Patrick loves acting but also loves Hollywood, which was an absolute black
