Good friend of GGG, Vito Lapiccola, joins the episode to kick off our Winter Holiday month with the beloved: Die Hard! Join Paul, Josiah, and Tyler as they travel through vents and break down the most festive action film of them all!
New York City policeman John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia) and two daughters on Christmas Eve. He joins her at a holiday party in the headquarters of the Japanese-owned business she works for. But the festivities are interrupted by a group of terrorists who take over the exclusive high-rise, and everyone in it. Very soon McClane realizes that there’s no one to save the hostages — but him.
