Why is This a Thing?

Nick, Nico, Zakk and Adam
ComedyTV & Film

Nick, Nico, Zakk and Adam are on a mission to watch the most crazy, bizarre and unapologetically horrible content ever produced. Each week, the four friends check out a movie or TV show you’ve probably never heard of and talk about it in intense, thought-provoking detail. Sometimes it’s weird. Sometimes it’s philosophical. But it’s always hilarious as they try to answer the question: “Why is This a Thing?”

  • Good idea but...

    These guys are boneheads. I listened to two episodes and it’s like they watched totally different movies from what I had. They got tons of information wrong and they misinterpreted a lot of very obvious things. Also, the audio is terrible. You can barely hear them one moment and then they blast your ears out the next.
