If you’ve listened to our Most Rewatchable TV Shows episode, you know that here at High Five: The Podcast, we are HUGE fans of Rick & Morty.

During this Jinxies sleepover, Q & J take a deep look into what…

In 1995, Mallrats gave us all a snapshot and time capsule for what the experience of hanging out at all mall could be like.

Q & J celebrate this shared #1 from our Top 5 Mall Movies…

Do you even read books, bro? You know, those things made of paper that used to be in libraries before Amazon and the Kindle were invented. Well, at High Five: The Podcast we love it when we can skip a book and just watch the movie instead (like we did in high school), but that doesn’t mean we excuse it when a movie adaptation of…
