Amistad is episode 94 focusing on the movie of the same name, as part of the Pod Me If You Cast miniseries covering the filmography of Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks era.
"Griffin and David look to Spielberg’s next film (also released in 1997) Amistad. But what are the glaringly problematic issues with this movie? Could a more suited director and screen writer have been brought onto the production? How long has Sir Anthony Hopkins been phoning it in exactly? Together they examine the career trajectory of Matthew McConaughey, Peter Firth receives comedy points and assess the cast in a performance review."

- In Avatarland/The Second Blank Check Mailbag, David lists this episode as his choice for the worst they've done. It was also mentioned Griffin did a bit in such bad taste, that it was edited out for his own well being.
