Back by popular demand, Pierce Ryan (writer of Standby and Black '47, and special guest of Episode 23 of The Best Bits) rejoins Will and Kevin on this punch-drunk entry of "All The Best Bits". In this commentary for Stallone's montage-laden overly '80s entry in the Rocky franchise, Will, Kevin and Pierce watch and comment on the film that, by all highly disputed accounts, ended The Cold War. The ultimate Rocky movie. The one, the only Rocky IV.Music is provided by Epidemic.You can contact the show with any comments, questions, or scene suggestions through Twitter or email us at bestbitspodcast@gmail.com!

Will and Kevin return for this "All the Best Bits" episode with The Princess Bride commentary. However, due to a mishap with differing runtimes on different media — DVDs run faster than Blu-rays! — and recording remotely, this mistake was discovered late into recording and despite their best efforts to sync up, it continued to happen, thus this commentary track is sadly not worth syncing up with the film. This recording has been salvaged and while it may not work as a traditional commentary, it is still a good time hang with a classic film both love and for one that offered the very first Best Bit of the whole show.
