    FS Revisited: Pulp Fiction / Top 5 of 1994

    Back in 2012, Josh was only a couple months into his role as new co-host, when Adam suggested the Best of '94 Top 5. The reconsideration of PULP FICTION was an after-thought - and something new: the first Sacred Cow review. Adam and Josh agree that Tarantino's iconic sophomore effort is the best film of '94, but quibble over whether there's any real substance to the film's dazzling style.

    The Statler Brothers, "Flowers on the Wall"
