Friendly Fire Opener Compilation

In Episode 52, Adam hoped that one day there will be a sizzle reel of all the fun Ben-introductions to the show, daisy-chained together.

Welcome to Friendly Fire, the war movie podcast…

1: Three dummies who never went to war reviewing some war movies.
2: A movie podcast where we watch war movies.
3: The podcast that talks about a different war movie every week with two movie nuts and a war history nut.
4: (Adam hijacking the mic) hosted by three cowards talking about bravery (Ben having prepared an intro anyway) It is a show where we decide what is a war movie and what is a snore movie.
5: … where we review war movies, and yet: You are here listening to it!
6: … where two of the hosts are tunneling for freedom, but won't let me in on the escape plan.
7: The show that can't train with weapons, so we train with staves.
8: The show with the hosts who are making a desperate last stand after the other 1200 podcasters fell in battle.
9: It is a show who's hosts are ready to be sold on the idea of surrender.
BONUS: … that we are just going to keep making unless you eventually try to negotiate with us.
10: The show where the hosts were trained to review films about office dramas, but here we are reviewing films about war.
11: … our grandfathers tried and failed to teach us to make, but we are here doing it anyway.

13: … we were only supposed to do for one week in a month and two weeks a year until this George Bush guy became president.
14: … that is so secret, we are willing to beat up a dozen MPs just to keep quiet.
15: … that sounds like it is going to be a right-wing fever dream, but winds up being a touching parable of friendship and camaraderie.
16: … that always makes us hungry, and when we get hungry we reach for a Subway brand sandwich. Whether you are casting pod or engage in insurgent warfare, Subway is always sure to satisfy. Subway: Eat Fresh!
17: … who's hosts can never just drop rank and be friends with each other anymore.
18: Bienvenue à Friendly Fire, le podcast du film de guerre qui n'a pas peur de montrer la brutalité des deux côtés, e un effet la façon dont la guerre de puis les deux côtés de leur humanité.

25: … that has become a great leader and talks about itself in the third person despite not really having an accent.
26: … where all three hosts have swallowed radios and won't turn them off.
27: … the only war movie podcast hosted by guys who became blood brothers immediately after meeting each other and that is really starting to backfire.

29: If you take us out, another war movie podcast will just take our place.
30: … that got a really bad feeling about man (said in a strange intonation).
31: … that could easily be confused with screwy noises coming from the hydrophone.
32: … where we start telling an awful lot of stories, but rarely finish them in a satisfying way.
33: … using the tropes of the monomyth to exploit deep pathways in the human brain for vast returns on investment, because capitalism perverts even artistic expression to its own ends.
34: … we record as we pedal our Weyland-Yutani brand big wheel tricycles all over LV-426.

46: … the can not play this kind of game ourselves, but we can always - how you say - looking for those things quite different, quite rare (in a pretend French accent).
47: … that can be compared to a military operation only in so far as it never goes according to the plan.
