Lookin GOOD Glossary
Unfortunately for most of you, this show operates on many, many inside jokes and references. Because the show exists mostly in the boys’ heads and not exactly attuned to a general audience, it causes the listeners to have to play catch up and detective to figure out what the fuck they’re talking about or referencing half the time. My advice to you is watch The Big Lebowski and Reservoir Dogs, at least twice each. That would explain probably 50% of them, right there.
Otherwise, here is a slightly comprehensive list of most of the general references made on the show, of people, stories, etc. Some of these relate to older episodes and lived and died on the vine kind of fast; others are still thrown around twice per episode. Hopefully it helps. But it probably won’t.
