  yeah cuz I i moved to a holding our [TS]

  country in march of 2015 so it's been [TS]

  it's going ok cameras off the board [TS]

  anything any anything else in the [TS]

  universe that you'd like to draft is a [TS]

  good thing from 2014 [TS]

  lets you know technically I could drive [TS]

  about five miles south and be [TS]

  broadcasting from another country so [TS]

  that's really a quick do you ever Steve [TS]

  do you know Cano yeah countries get [TS]

  worse the further south you go and i [TS]

  found this country take that Panama [TS]

  don't listen listener Etienne i am [TS]

  looking forward to the first and last [TS]

  episode of the incomparable recorded in [TS]

  Tijuana maps trapped lose to a Maps [TS]

  draft just all about maps another thing [TS]

  that i did like a lot this year was I [TS]

  loved Doctor Who series 8 i'm not from [TS]

  the same emotional place that I have [TS]

  loved some previous series but just from [TS]

  the fact that it's the doing different [TS]

  things that always gets me very excited [TS]

  i had that on my list [TS]

  I've marked on the list of things that I [TS]

  running boards not a draft it's not a [TS]

  draft so you can still take it i just [TS]

  say I agree with you yes exactly what [TS]

  the the other thing that was a kind of a [TS]

  big excitement for me was another new [TS]

  thing home might some of my friends have [TS]

  launched a new magazine which i think i [TS]

  might have mentioned on an episode [TS]

  before called the uncanny magazine Linda [TS]

  michael thomas who both have multiple [TS]

  hugo awards and or award nominations to [TS]

  their name and have have been editors of [TS]

  magazines in the past are launching [TS]

  their own and it's so awesome and [TS]

  they asked me to be a part of it so I've [TS]

  been producing the podcast and that [TS]

  meant I actually can I got to be in on [TS]

  the ground floor and no redress of [TS]

  stories as they were coming in and help [TS]

  out with the whole planning of all of [TS]

  this stuff and it's it's really cool to [TS]

  see how something like that gets put [TS]

  together from the ground up so it's been [TS]

  fun [TS]

  also you you and your compatriots on the [TS]

  very podcast were nominated for Hugo or [TS]

  this year I feel I need to mention that [TS]

  I was I was not looking to mention that [TS]

  was that by the way being nominated for [TS]

  you go it seems like it'd be really cool [TS]

  it is an unbelievably like mind-blowing [TS]

  Lee weird I mean I grew up in a [TS]

  household where our bookshelves are [TS]

  aligned with like Hugo nominated books [TS]

  and so to me it was it was like the [TS]

  Oscar in our household was the hugo [TS]

  award so to find out that my name was on [TS]

  you know the big screen there at the [TS]

  words with it still doesn't quite seem [TS]

  real [TS]

  someday I hope to be associated with [TS]

  something that might be nominated for [TS]

  you go that would be pretty cool when I [TS]

  was a kid we had parsec awards [TS]

  everywhere for her parents and one of [TS]

  them is it was a huge huge we made that [TS]

  award in less than 12 parsecs [TS]

  yeah one exactly what do you exactly one [TS]

  parsec on a game called parsec what the [TS]

  hell was that game [TS]

  yeah there was a game called particular [TS]

  right like an old like text please type [TS]

  game I thought it was like a Commodore [TS]

  64 thing is ti ti 1998-99 yeah okay [TS]

  that's it [TS]

  got it alright I feel better now used to [TS]

  play him around beyond the trs-80 good [TS]

  knowledge David and and with that i [TS]

  think i have to come to you and say what [TS]

  do you what do you like in 14 he told [TS]

  you playing Hammurabi on the trs-80 [TS]

  Monty you have died of dysentery that's [TS]

  not however I know it's not how you been [TS]

  eaten by a grue all damn it that's not [TS]

  it either [TS]

  David haha well I was gonna say Peter [TS]

  Capaldi as dr. haha [TS]

  because even even when an episode didn't [TS]

  quite work [TS]

  I loved him you know uh-huh and he can [TS]

  he made it his own [TS]

  I like that and and he can i would say [TS]

  he hit the ground running so that made [TS]

  me very happy this year [TS]

  discovering the expanse books I i have i [TS]

  have continued on with those and that's [TS]

  directly you guys fault [TS]

  yeah then and I'm excited about the the [TS]

  sci-fi channel adaptation of it i'm [TS]

  curious to see how did he stoled after [TS]

  meal or numbers or aft and so there's no [TS]

  swiping a non dress autocraft David just [TS]

  keeps doing my stuff basis like now all [TS]

  the podcast oh speaking of books and [TS]

  this boston red sox had is really cool [TS]

  David talked about how much how excited [TS]

  you are about Star Wars man i could go [TS]

  for about 90 minutes on that [TS]

  mmm where did well if you didn't more [TS]

  podcasts he'd been able to go first just [TS]

  saying I see how it is Canada [TS]

  yeah you're polite and nice are two [TS]

  different things that something else [TS]

  something about getting a touche yeah [TS]

  you do the terrible thing and then you [TS]

  just say soros re sorcery or not [TS]

  no siree that's what's in the burgers [TS]

  anything else David are the complete [TS]

  series of WKRP on DVD [TS]

  we are a remarkable amount of the music [TS]

  restored and all of the scenes that got [TS]

  cut in syndication so these are all [TS]

  these are versions that haven't been on [TS]

  the air since 1982 at the latest [TS]

  so that's pretty amazing that that that [TS]

  they managed to clear that they managed [TS]

  to clear any of the music let alone [TS]

  something like what [TS]

  eighty-five ninety percent most of it [TS]

  yeah it's it's insane so just being able [TS]

  to see all that again let's shout [TS]

  factory ride [TS]

  yeah that that's sort of what they do is [TS]

  clear [TS]

  music rights for dvds they're really [TS]

  good at it reminds me I gotta go buy a [TS]

  copy of that before somebody changes [TS]

  their mind yeah that's right yeah [TS]

  mhm so there you go [TS]

  khopoli good experience to be care p and [TS]

  Liechtenstein alright liechtenstein is [TS]

  is talking off the board off the board [TS]

  Principality of Liechtenstein John [TS]

  siracusa [TS]

  you may go and pick things you like from [TS]

  this from this year and or countries i [TS]

  was hoping one of you guys would say [TS]

  some of the things that I like so i can [TS]

  remember what the hell happened here so [TS]

  i got a list i'm not i can't guarantee [TS]

  the things that I liked the most this [TS]

  year but these definitely the things [TS]

  that i can remember memorable moments [TS]

  from 2014 [TS]

  yeah so the first one is obviously there [TS]

  because i just finished watching this [TS]

  season but i think it deserves a mention [TS]

  just because of so how terrible it was [TS]

  in the past on how turned and turned [TS]

  everything around us or shield agents of [TS]

  shield that was was bad [TS]

  superbad got ok kind of interesting and [TS]

  then in this season i watched a show [TS]

  like completely on ironically completely [TS]

  like not i'm not hate watching it i'm [TS]

  just watching it because it's kind of a [TS]

  fun show and I liked it and it's not [TS]

  like it's still pretty silly and light [TS]

  and fluffy but I'm maybe it's like [TS]

  wearing me down i'm just going to go [TS]

  with it but it was fun i still kinda [TS]

  miss the x-files you know but whatever [TS]

  its fine game of thrones i still like i [TS]

  mentioned every single year every year [TS]

  they have a season I don't know the [TS]

  story i haven't read the books i have no [TS]

  I don't have any bitterness about them [TS]

  not following the books just like seeing [TS]

  people with swords fight with each other [TS]

  and have political intrigue and just [TS]

  terrible things happen and I like it [TS]

  Congress would be way better if they [TS]

  fought with swords [TS]

  yeah it's a just my kind of show again [TS]

  and every year you know I have [TS]

  equivalent here and there but like if I [TS]

  had to think of if you can make any show [TS]

  coming here right now which one would [TS]

  you pick and i was already just game of [TS]

  thrones and the final thing is this is [TS]

  the year that excitement about Star Wars [TS]

  is back in my life that I didn't think [TS]

  would happen not like i don't know i [TS]

  just kind of like that I given up on [TS]

  Star Wars but it's kinda like you know [TS]

  we had the prequels they were sad and we [TS]

  all talked about the movie kinda got [TS]

  over and we all just moved on and [TS]

  they're making more of them and I'm [TS]

  excited about it again and it's [TS]

  something I didn't think what happened [TS]

  and remind me of this again in three [TS]

  years time [TS]

  yeah if I'm similarly crushed but yeah [TS]

  that's been important to me this year [TS]

  hey you got roughly a year to ride that [TS]

  high i don't have tried for you [TS]

  yeah like ass trying to forget the [TS]

  podcast we can record last night but I [TS]

  just remembered it it'll fade out [TS]

  quickly hood not usually does never [TS]

  happened [TS]

  Steve what would you like this year [TS]

  nothing [TS]

  Jason alright we go again and there's a [TS]

  few things actually 2013 was kind of but [TS]

  in 2014 therefore was was I was amped up [TS]

  about and it turned out to be pretty [TS]

  solid year personally which as it turns [TS]

  out means that I don't spend a lot of [TS]

  time watching movies or doing other [TS]

  things that I could possibly talk about [TS]

  on the podcast or even being on the [TS]

  podcast so that's the downside to having [TS]

  a good year maybe 2015 will suck a [TS]

  little more and then you'll be hearing [TS]

  will see you more [TS]

  that's right so just a couple of quick [TS]

  mentions the only game i played that was [TS]

  new this year was a the dlc for the last [TS]

  of us left behind which I like a lot [TS]

  I didn't think it was quite the [TS]

  transcendent experience that a lot of [TS]

  people did but I enjoyed it i like [TS]

  seeing them doing something interesting [TS]

  and new with the but basically uncharted [TS]

  engine me too i forgot that came out [TS]

  this year that was a lot of fun [TS]

  mostly I played old games i I've [TS]

  realized that i got in the habit when I [TS]

  was a kid of of putting off playing or [TS]

  watching whatever I most wanted to play [TS]

  or watch because you get you needed [TS]

  Christmas would come once a year on your [TS]

  birthday would come a couple months [TS]

  later and and you receive you know a [TS]

  handful of games and that was it for the [TS]

  year you know you can just go out and [TS]

  buy one so you you I would always take [TS]

  like the one game that I really wanted [TS]

  to play and i would put it up on the [TS]

  shelf and I would maybe play an hour of [TS]

  it tops and I would save it you know so [TS]

  I had always had something to look [TS]

  forward to throughout the year which [TS]

  worked great when I only had three [TS]

  movies or games or whatever to choose [TS]

  from but when you have a huge pile of [TS]

  games or an infinite universe of [TS]

  historical cinema at your fingertips [TS]

  basically you just never get around to [TS]

  playing what you actually want to play [TS]

  so i have this huge pile of games that i [TS]

  never played and I've actually decided [TS]

  this year that i'm not going to buy a [TS]

  new game Intel I at least play [TS]

  everything in my Steam library for at [TS]

  least [TS]

  the couple of hours and so every [TS]

  everything in your Steam library that's [TS]

  what I'm saying oh that's I don't see [TS]

  that happening [TS]

  I don't know I see you again in 2020 [TS]

  well that's the problem is the game that [TS]

  I like are all like 30 hours to finish [TS]

  so i may never buy a new game again [TS]

  which actually would be fine because [TS]

  he'll still be playing games that i like [TS]

  but I started way back in time this year [TS]

  I finally played a link to the past [TS]

  which I enjoyed I i finally finished [TS]

  super mario 64 i did not get all the [TS]

  stars that before you asked John so I'm [TS]

  not gonna help my backlog yeah because [TS]

  it goes back more than that finally [TS]

  we're finally working on his orch it [TS]

  really beat that thing finally the game [TS]

  that i probably spent the most time on [TS]

  this year was pool of radiance which is [TS]

  a few years my God you never played that [TS]

  back in the day that was the game I [TS]

  first game I wanted to buy for my like [TS]

  the first time we got a computer and my [TS]

  dad took me to the computer store and [TS]

  bought it and got home and realized it [TS]

  was a pc game from and it wouldn't run [TS]

  my mac oh so you're fascism as a Mac [TS]

  user basically and I was so sad to go [TS]

  take it back now i want to copy years [TS]

  ago and somehow I just never got around [TS]

  to playing it I think it was another one [TS]

  of those deals where I just you know [TS]

  this looks like I think the biggest [TS]

  problem was I could never get past the [TS]

  interface because the interface and that [TS]

  game is truly horrific Steve just tell [TS]

  me it wasn't worth it that's all I want [TS]

  to hear it actually is a really really [TS]

  good game i checked i wish i played at [TS]

  the time because it does so many things [TS]

  that that none of the night of its [TS]

  contemporaries were doing in RPGs it's [TS]

  got side quests got non random [TS]

  encounters that are actually interesting [TS]

  it you don't have to do that thing that [TS]

  you always had to do in wizardry in the [TS]

  bard's tale where your party dies 17 [TS]

  times before we luck into hitting just [TS]

  goblins for the first couple of [TS]

  encounters and you actually make it to [TS]

  level two [TS]

  it actually is a nice little difficulty [TS]

  curve that ramps up slowly really good [TS]

  game [TS]

  it's it's worth picking up and throwing [TS]

  in dosbox and give it a try but you have [TS]

  to really wrestle with the interface to [TS]

  get into it it's probably why i never [TS]

  played it back in the day right now in [TS]

  the middle of them in the middle of [TS]

  Ultima 6 which I also never finished and [TS]

  play multiple one earlier this year [TS]

  first time [TS]

  the one you can finish in about half a [TS]

  day and i'll yeah it was great mistakes [TS]

  is substantially longer and then of [TS]

  course we talked about ultimate seven [TS]

  last year which i will probably take on [TS]

  after that so well anyway lots of old [TS]

  games new things as we say yes new [TS]

  things green family and it was getting [TS]

  an HD remake so that should be an [TS]

  exciting old game that's that you've [TS]

  mentioned in the past that is going to [TS]

  come back there's been a lot of good [TS]

  news on the LucasArts front this year [TS]

  including the the release by good old [TS]

  games of x-wing and tie fighter right [TS]

  but this was coming out this year and [TS]

  they did [TS]

  yeah so yeah it's been it's been a good [TS]

  year for that sort of thing moving on to [TS]

  movies I like two guardians of the [TS]

  galaxy I think everybody else did [TS]

  again you know not two not a star wars [TS]

  transformative experience nope not [TS]

  everybody like that's ok but i read it i [TS]

  like it a lot and I also like the [TS]

  boxtrolls a lot [TS]

  mm not not enough to write down my [TS]

  thoughts on the subject now it was good [TS]

  check TV didn't watch much TV [TS]

  in fact the only TV i really watched was [TS]

  stuff through netflix or old DVDs the [TS]

  one thing of note that i wanted to bring [TS]

  up was at the beginning of year i sat [TS]

  down to watch the first episode of Derek [TS]

  and just to check it out and i ended up [TS]

  staying up most of the night to watch [TS]

  the whole first series wow I because [TS]

  it's it's really really good and if you [TS]

  get any of you guys have watched it now [TS]

  so yeah half of it [TS]

  yeah it's yet another mockumentary from [TS]

  ricky gervais ace he plays a [TS]

  simple-minded caretaker at a old folks [TS]

  home [TS]

  karl Pilkington basically plays karl [TS]

  Pilkington because all you really need [TS]

  karl Pilkington but he's the smart one [TS]

  in this relationship isn't just [TS]

  wonderful [TS]

  your face says that Derek is not [TS]

  impaired in any way and is not autistic [TS]

  but if he wanted people to pick that up [TS]

  then he really ought to have played him [TS]

  as not an artist [TS]

  so anyway like most your face vehicles [TS]

  the show it's got a lot of the surf [TS]

  cringe-worthy moments where people are [TS]

  being generally awful and you kind of [TS]

  want to look away but unlike say the [TS]

  office they actually temper that with a [TS]

  lot of sweetness you know I i watched it [TS]

  i laughed a lot [TS]

  I cried a lot really enjoyed it haven't [TS]

  watched the second series which I guess [TS]

  came out this year yet but i will get [TS]

  around to it once i have five or six [TS]

  hours to set aside I think my favorite [TS]

  bit is there's a there's an episode [TS]

  where they take the residents of the [TS]

  nursing home on a field trip to the [TS]

  beach and there's a segment where [TS]

  Derek's dirtbag friend keV is he's [TS]

  writing horrible things on crabs no [TS]

  evident reason he's piece brought up a [TS]

  marker and he's jesus chosen to spend [TS]

  his time at the beach writing things [TS]

  like tits and a mouth on crabs and karl [TS]

  Pilkington comes up and asks why are you [TS]

  riding on crabs he says why are you not [TS]

  riding on top as always happens so [TS]

  eventually Derek finds one asks what's [TS]

  ball and and kev picks up the one that [TS]

  says ball on the back and sit down next [TS]

  to the one that says Sox as they only [TS]

  make sense together anyway love that [TS]

  scene that was one of the funniest [TS]

  things I watched you other than that [TS]

  it's been mostly reruns a full house [TS]

  fair enough yeah as usual in other words [TS]

  yeah yeah no classes that is better show [TS]

  that I remember i'm not going to go into [TS]

  detail is it not it is to my daughter is [TS]

  dan help me out here what do you have [TS]

  well if steve was commenting that I [TS]

  guess 2014 was a better year from now i [TS]

  guess that i had plenty of stuff going [TS]

  on i was gonna say so i think both David [TS]

  mentioned the expanse which I think was [TS]

  the best book series are this year yes I [TS]

  put it ahead of ancillary justice for [TS]

  them to me but I loved it was the one of [TS]

  the best sci-fi series I've read in [TS]

  years so that was great it was great to [TS]

  discover that and I abolished all for [TS]

  those books and girlie awaiting both the [TS]

  TV series and future books i was also [TS]

  get in and John mentioned Star Wars [TS]

  obviously which would be is kind of [TS]

  exciting to you know be poised in a [TS]

  moment where there's a new star wars [TS]

  movie coming out looks like it might not [TS]

  suck [TS]

  fingers crossed knocking on wood all [TS]

  those things guys are setting yourself [TS]

  up so I know we're good i have already [TS]

  been down that road every time I know [TS]

  what you learned in our day for concerts [TS]

  were ready to love obviously optimistic [TS]

  we just rehash that travel over the last [TS]

  couple of years that you guys over the [TS]

  last couple of days but because it has [TS]

  been dragging of the opening old wounds [TS]

  and picking at scabs [TS]

  yep it's so our job yeah I mean no I'm [TS]

  not putting everything I'm not not [TS]

  everything is riding on that is what I'm [TS]

  saying but I'm going to cast kind of a [TS]

  broad net here and say it was a really [TS]

  good year for screen adaptations of [TS]

  superheroes captain america the winter [TS]

  soldier was i thought one of the best [TS]

  movies this year [TS]

  I really enjoyed guardians of the galaxy [TS]

  as well and I think there have been some [TS]

  tremendously excellent superhero [TS]

  adaptations on the small screen John [TS]

  already mentioned agents of shield which [TS]

  I agree has progressed hugely over its [TS]

  first season it's actually show that i [TS]

  look forward to watching every weakness [TS]

  and it actually feels like the kind of [TS]

  the joss whedon ish you know the [TS]

  weaknesses take on a superhero genre [TS]

  that we kind of wanted when it started [TS]

  yeah so it's finally kind of living up [TS]

  to the potential has had all along i [TS]

  feel like i am and then I will also add [TS]

  both the flash and arrow the flash has [TS]

  been delightful surprises here it is [TS]

  become quickly become one of my favorite [TS]

  shows and it makes a really interesting [TS]

  counterpart to arrow which I've really [TS]

  been enjoying for the last several years [TS]

  and they you know both play around with [TS]

  that by having they had some crossovers [TS]

  late in the year that were a lot of fun [TS]

  and they just have both been genuinely [TS]

  entertaining have provided some great [TS]

  moments for superheroes on the small [TS]

  screen and managed to revitalize that I [TS]

  think in a way that Marvel's done a [TS]

  great job of that on the big screen and [TS]

  I really enjoyed most of the outings [TS]

  there but i feel like the small screen [TS]

  you know agents of shield especially was [TS]

  kinda lackluster and I feel like DC has [TS]

  done a nice job of starting to create [TS]

  its own little microcosm universe there [TS]

  so I've hugely enjoyed those there have [TS]

  been some lesser also-rans in there as [TS]

  well we won't go into those and see so [TS]

  that's a books and movies and TV shows i [TS]

  would also go I dad on the TV show front [TS]

  as well will separate but there are a [TS]

  bunch of shows that i watch her ending [TS]

  this year so i want to give a shout out [TS]

  to one of them which we have not yet [TS]

  covered in a podcast and i know has been [TS]

  much requested and that's legend of [TS]

  korra and this show has been excellent [TS]

  all throughout its four season runs in [TS]

  the fourth season as we record this the [TS]

  fourth season is basically there's two [TS]

  episodes left they're airing [TS]

  back-to-back and it's been amazing run [TS]

  for this for season I've really enjoyed [TS]

  it hasn't been without its flaws here [TS]

  and there but it's been so the rarely [TS]

  have I found a show that is [TS]

  that emotional and manages to do it [TS]

  without being sappy but really I there's [TS]

  times where I watched that night i [TS]

  generally i feel myself getting a little [TS]

  cramped and it does a great job of [TS]

  building on avatar last airbender and it [TS]

  really making a complex and interesting [TS]

  show with a bunch of really great [TS]

  characters fantastic writing it's really [TS]

  funny and I'm will be sad to see it go [TS]

  and hope that the guys behind it will [TS]

  find something else to do after that's [TS]

  over and on the game front [TS]

  I've been playing a crap ton of Destiny [TS]

  which i will say is maybe not a great [TS]

  game but let me tell you boy is it [TS]

  scratched that itch for collecting [TS]

  things I finally understand the ammo [TS]

  appeal i think all these years and I [TS]

  never really played World of Warcraft or [TS]

  anything but they sort of married the [TS]

  halo shooter engine to a MMO like [TS]

  upgrade your got we start my friends and [TS]

  i have started calling it space dress up [TS]

  with a net punching with a bunch of guys [TS]

  minigames because those are the most [TS]

  entertaining part of the game was like [TS]

  oh just a little character he's got new [TS]

  cake and also the part where you get to [TS]

  punch people in the face which is [TS]

  amazing what you find it frustrating [TS]

  though that you can't like you can't [TS]

  play dress-up you but sometimes you have [TS]

  to take a piece you just posted a link [TS]

  to an article about you have yeah he's [TS]

  adamant because its stats are better be [TS]

  like but I love my previous armor was [TS]

  right it isn't a whole lot of trade-offs [TS]

  ministry us but it is a it's terribly [TS]

  written i will say that as as from a [TS]

  writer's perspective is really badly [TS]

  written the story is terrible [TS]

  the boy's father is not believe the [TS]

  scriptwriter was from the moon and you [TS]

  cut that came from with the it is a [TS]

  beautiful game and the one thing bungee [TS]

  is amazing at is that sort of mechanics [TS]

  see it is incredibly satisfying game [TS]

  just kinetically and physically to play [TS]

  and so I enjoy that part of it and let [TS]

  me tell you it in a year that has [TS]

  brought me a decent amount of stress it [TS]

  is a great stress reliever [TS]

  nice so i will give a thumbs up for that [TS]

  and with that I think that concludes my [TS]

  mysore top of the year list [TS]

  well done Monty yes Jason what what do [TS]

  you what did you like that you like [TS]

  anything this year or was this just a [TS]

  crappy year for you i did like something [TS]

  tell me about them well there's this [TS]

  show called the flash that I liked very [TS]

  much has somebody mentioned it already [TS]

  know it doesn't matter it's not a draft [TS]

  okay well I'd I've been watching arrow [TS]

  the whole time and arrows fun I think [TS]

  it's a really good show but arrows grim [TS]

  both the show is grim and the main [TS]

  character is very tower tower is for his [TS]

  always scrunched up and it's really fun [TS]

  that they not only made a light show to [TS]

  go with it but actually in the crossover [TS]

  episodes let the characters confront [TS]

  that in interesting ways i really [TS]

  enjoyed the people on arrow being [TS]

  shocked that the people on flash have [TS]

  given their villains ridiculous names [TS]

  like Captain Cold [TS]

  I like to come back on that by the way [TS]

  oh yeah yeah and have coffee with [TS]

  Deathstroke in the hundreds [TS]

  yeah let the fact that the flash writers [TS]

  thought about it and said are we going [TS]

  to have the rainbow Raider yes it's his [TS]

  secret even really going to be named [TS]

  ROYGBIV below [TS]

  yeah yeah you on it yep yep live with [TS]

  the fact that they're not ashamed to [TS]

  actually have a comic book character on [TS]

  television really makes me happy about [TS]

  that show ya another show i really [TS]

  enjoyed this year that i did not like it [TS]

  first was Bojack horseman [TS]

  mm which is the story of a real jerk of [TS]

  a guy with the head of a horse and it [TS]

  looks like a horrible cartoon that's [TS]

  just going for crudeness but if you [TS]

  watch the whole season by the end it's [TS]

  actually a really interesting layered [TS]

  look at depression [TS]

  there's a scene right toward the end of [TS]

  the series where the main character [TS]

  Bojack horseman is standing in a [TS]

  spotlight begging another character to [TS]

  tell him he's a good person who just [TS]

  says over and over [TS]

  please tell me i'm good i need you to [TS]

  tell me I'm good [TS]

  please tell me I'm good and then the [TS]

  episode ends [TS]

  Oh [TS]

  it is bleak and much better than I [TS]

  thought it was when i started watching [TS]

  it i'm really enjoying playing Dark [TS]

  Knight dragon age inquisition right now [TS]

  it's possible that by the time this [TS]

  episode airs i will have finished it [TS]

  probably not though because i'm [TS]

  determined to do every single thing in [TS]

  this game before progressing the story [TS]

  at all so I'm about 45 hours in right [TS]

  now wow and looking at spoilers online i [TS]

  think of progress the story about forty [TS]

  percent but I'm enjoying it a lot [TS]

  I like bioware games general i played [TS]

  mat the first mass effect for the first [TS]

  time this year and I thought that was a [TS]

  lot of fun [TS]

  that's a good game that is a good game i [TS]

  liked it it was a little annoying that [TS]

  there were so many loading scenes [TS]

  standing right of elevators that's what [TS]

  your elevators for but i don't need the [TS]

  loading scene anymore [TS]

  let me tell you let me say about destiny [TS]

  and watching your ship fly over planet [TS]

  as way better than elevator i love know [TS]

  its traditional route it's nothing [TS]

  spaceflights the ship kind of wobbling [TS]

  some passengers remember shakes after [TS]

  about the 30th time you're done with [TS]

  that Valley and install onto the [TS]

  harddrive really the book I was happiest [TS]

  about this year is a thing called the [TS]

  maze of games which is came out of a [TS]

  Kickstarter run by a guy named Mike [TS]

  selling her who does puzzles [TS]

  he's currently running the cards against [TS]

  humanity ridiculous holiday [TS]

  multi-layered puzzle this book takes the [TS]

  form of a novel made up of puzzles with [TS]

  all the puzzles themed two cards so [TS]

  there are 52 individual puzzles but to [TS]

  figure out what order to solve them you [TS]

  have to solve these mazes and then when [TS]

  you're done there's another puzzle where [TS]

  you I think you have to use the answers [TS]

  from all 52 previous puzzles in a [TS]

  particular order and that will tell you [TS]

  what metal puzzle you are trying to [TS]

  solve in order to get the final answer [TS]

  sounds like risk opoly the book yeah [TS]

  that's great i have not solved it yet i [TS]

  don't think anyone has and then after at [TS]

  the end of it there's a thing called the [TS]

  conundrum copia which has like 60 extra [TS]

  puzzles by people like Ken Jennings oh [TS]

  it's a really neat book it's beautiful [TS]

  and there's nothing like it so I'm [TS]

  really happy about it and since this [TS]

  episode airs i believe at the end of the [TS]

  year be very beginning of 2015 alright [TS]

  then i am going to be very optimistic [TS]

  and say I really enjoyed the hobbit [TS]

  three here so we've got three delusional [TS]

  people of the fuck yeah that's right [TS]

  the hobbit three totally changed my mind [TS]

  about what a waste of time nine hours of [TS]

  the hobbit is that was a that's roughly [TS]

  about average Steve for the number of [TS]

  delusional people on episode something [TS]

  to be in company for ya [TS]

  is that it Monty I think so yeah alright [TS]

  I because i am the host and I will go [TS]

  last I everything that I was going to [TS]

  talk about his essentially been taken so [TS]

  I'll just to amplify movie wise lot of [TS]

  people enjoyed guardians of the galaxy [TS]

  and I did too i think the best superhero [TS]

  movie of the year was Captain America to [TS]

  the Winter Soldier Captain America the [TS]

  Winter Soldier no colon know to just [TS]

  captain america the winter soldier but [TS]

  there's no colon between captain america [TS]

  the winter soldier no it's just on a [TS]

  different line so i guess the maybe the [TS]

  colon is implied i don't know i watched [TS]

  again the other day and i really like it [TS]

  i think that's a very I think it's a [TS]

  really good movie I'm i like the themes [TS]

  of it it's actually trying to say [TS]

  something and it's also extremely [TS]

  extremely fun to watch [TS]

  although my my wife pointed out the [TS]

  whole time she's like wait a second that [TS]

  guy's the winter soldier I thought they [TS]

  were just saying the captain america was [TS]

  the winter soldier like no and bring [TS]

  that up in a pasture yeah totally [TS]

  I only hope that was the case yeah [TS]

  they're both winter soldier though I [TS]

  think that's the joke [TS]

  sure anyway uh yeah that was moving like [TS]

  books the expanse again i read the first [TS]

  book a couple years ago for the ark you [TS]

  go episode but I read the rest of them [TS]

  this year and i really love them looking [TS]

  forward to the TV series and i think the [TS]

  book that i like that i read this year [TS]

  that I liked the most was the golem in [TS]

  the Genii which we talked about in a [TS]

  previous episode [TS]

  i'm still waiting for the sequel where [TS]

  they form a detective agency and fight [TS]

  crime and I'm TV the flash I think it [TS]

  was a real standout there was i [TS]

  retweeted the other day from spider-man [TS]

  writer Dan Slott tweet that said [TS]

  basically hey hey people who like the [TS]

  funny book superheroes you should watch [TS]

  the flash this is the show we've been [TS]

  waiting for this is an actual like [TS]

  unrepentant superhero show [TS]

  it'sit's not apologizing for being a [TS]

  superhero show it embraces it and yet it [TS]

  isn't campy and over-the-top and crazy [TS]

  and it's just a lot of fun and I agree [TS]

  it's a it's it's a it's a real fine they [TS]

  did a good job they are walking a very [TS]

  fine line in terms of tone and they're [TS]

  doing a really good job of it series of [TS]

  Doctor Who as well i really enjoyed I [TS]

  enjoyed the latest season of Game of [TS]

  Thrones and then something that has been [TS]

  mentioned yet that i mentioned i think [TS]

  the funniest comedy on TV right now is [TS]

  Brooklyn nine-nine I love it oh yeah [TS]

  yeah yeahs about throwing it out there [TS]

  Brooklyn is drawing that earlier tonight [TS]

  and it is enjoyable time for a brief [TS]

  break to tell you about our sponsor its [TS]

  Squarespace you've heard about them [TS]

  before but let me take you back in time [TS]

  a little bit used to be really hard to [TS]

  build a beautiful website for yourself [TS]

  for your business [TS]

  it is so that manually there were a lot [TS]

  of technical things technical and [TS]

  setting up a server technical and [TS]

  setting up the domain name technical in [TS]

  the web authoring environment just so [TS]

  much stuff and then you make one mistake [TS]

  thing is Squarespace makes this easy if [TS]

  Squarespace has with getty images it [TS]

  used to be really hard to get access to [TS]

  good photos you can't just take a photo [TS]

  it because photos are copyright by their [TS]

  photographers and you can maybe go to [TS]

  flicker and do so [TS]

  Commons licensing off of them which is [TS]

  something that's happened recently but [TS]

  in episode to let me see if I can play a [TS]

  clip of what Clinton is talking about [TS]

  cross your fingers and yuengling is a [TS]

  redundant word space children young [TS]

  means one thing and this suffix link [TS]

  just means a young version of black [TS]

  young young man doing anything [TS]

  what's up young space raise children [TS]

  come on [TS]

  word up my youngs Young's a favor really [TS]

  rather short brief wasn't it yeah it was [TS]

  the trouble with this is I can't tell [TS]

  could you please put some of the little [TS]

  town the next really disconcerting I'm [TS]

  apparently turned back to contents is [TS]

  that it was like a young 21 up my youngs [TS]

  coherent sentences when we were talking [TS]

  about Anakin's advances toward pod may [TS]

  in the episode to episode and he also [TS]

  enjoyed a moment from our robot draft me [TS]

  see if i can find that one here here it [TS]

  is [TS]

  I feel emboldened by my ability to get [TS]

  showed and past the censors oh so well [TS]

  then this next one is definitely not i [TS]

  would like little are you sure because [TS]

  what i would like to pick is the robot [TS]

  the dance move from the mid-1980s that's [TS]

  a robot our shared culture would be [TS]

  infinitely poor without the spectacle of [TS]

  white men trying to break dance you got [TS]

  it [TS]

  that's changeable for choice really [TS]

  you're giving me the robot [TS]

  yes you get the rope i'm giving you the [TS]

  robot right now but you can't see it [TS]

  oh good i'm keeping the robot and I'm [TS]

  going I'm going back to my quarter that [TS]

  does it [TS]

  my next pick is going to be the song mr. [TS]

  roboto that should have happened [TS]

  yeah i was gonna pick mr. roboto but you [TS]

  picking the robot let me make it a joke [TS]

  about it instead and we're real good [TS]

  drafting that's good draft strategy to [TS]

  make it without it no one actually a war [TS]

  nobody picked obour practice your life [TS]

  backwards but still I shopper tote board [TS]

  still on the board [TS]

  Lister mark segal road instead hear some [TS]

  of my favorite moments in episodes also [TS]

  level when people send in time codes [TS]

  they know last year I mentioned to time [TS]

  codes i will i will get clips if you [TS]

  give me the time codes and people listen [TS]

  dammit they listened so I one of mark's [TS]

  favorite we call them listeners yes we [TS]

  love them we love them one more marks [TS]

  favorites was my introduction to the the [TS]

  video game graph peak crate and it went [TS]

  a little something like this [TS]

  welcome back to the uncomfortable [TS]

  podcast the podcast that likes to draft [TS]

  things because i have obsessed with [TS]

  drafting things all the things will be [TS]

  drafted eventually culminating in our [TS]

  draft draft we draft the biggest the [TS]

  best [TS]

  laughs that we've ever done but until [TS]

  then we will do this draft drafts of [TS]

  drafts it's here the house sound Jason [TS]

  you sound so much younger and you know [TS]

  back then there's an Edison time then it [TS]

  was interesting really excited and [TS]

  feeling useful for podcasting say it's [TS]

  like the presidency really ages it does [TS]

  let me tell you that was that was before [TS]

  we knew about the butter zone and the [TS]

  shame whole yeah so you can answer [TS]

  that's what everything was scattered [TS]

  that was Jason calls home office was [TS]

  really an Internet it wasn't it wasn't [TS]

  innocent i'm mark also really like but [TS]

  the bonus track from episode 221 which [TS]

  featured this exchange apply a liberal [TS]

  amounts of hand waving them to your head [TS]

  canon directly to your head canon i'm [TS]

  not a Cyberman I don't have a head [TS]

  candidate neither do most Cyberman these [TS]

  days [TS]

  there you go ahead team effort that one [TS]

  anyway goodnight guys [TS]

  mark love whenever we discuss video [TS]

  games he liked the the bonus track [TS]

  waiting for serenity where we waited for [TS]

  about 10 minutes for serenity and she [TS]

  couldn't come and then we just gave up [TS]

  that was a good one [TS]

  yeah i think our fans listen too much [TS]

  sometimes they need to get going to go [TS]

  outside take a walk yeah yeah they're [TS]

  listening while they go outside and take [TS]

  a walk that's the problem [TS]

  he's got a bunch of other episodes that [TS]

  really good good clips from this too and [TS]

  it's not just one up my youngs me see if [TS]

  i can find these here [TS]

  let's see no that's just the thing i [TS]

  don't have started talking I got left [TS]

  behind like i'm having a little be in [TS]

  reaction to that now do you [TS]

  TT's you just jump to a different plane [TS]

  of existence [TS]

  oh my god Steve let's try this this is a [TS]

  disturbing 1 episode 2 [TS]

  okay i want to i want to get a little [TS]

  word picture for you guys because I i [TS]

  want to take you back to when I met my [TS]

  wife and the thing that made her fall in [TS]

  love with me as i said to her you know I [TS]

  don't like this and hear everything soft [TS]

  and smooth [TS]

  unlike me what a line what what that is [TS]

  like one of the greatest lines ever you [TS]

  have to couple it with a caress Jason [TS]

  that's the goal i did i did at the time [TS]

  and amazing is it totally works that is [TS]

  the just the greatest line in the [TS]

  history of rome and wait to see all all [TS]

  the women in the audience here swinging [TS]

  by the corner since I know when he would [TS]

  say the soft like you and like I [TS]

  expected her to shrink from his touch [TS]

  and order is remade away but no she's [TS]

  like this is such a turn-on [TS]

  yeah this is to turn on i think this [TS]

  listen to his favorite line from John [TS]

  Sirica is a bit here I was right [TS]

  Caroline that clip is coupled with a [TS]

  caress your welcome to Steve's dad [TS]

  here's some more good good stuff about [TS]

  Anakin Skywalker [TS]

  ya know a Hayden has exactly two facial [TS]

  expressions [TS]

  he's got a sexual predator have severely [TS]

  constipated any alternate between them [TS]

  just completely at random it's like he's [TS]

  throwing a dye inside his head shits [TS]

  smirk time it's probably good that it [TS]

  doesn't try both at the same time [TS]

  smoke time Oh Lucas cut those parts of [TS]

  those so that was the only editing he [TS]

  did if he was saving it for the third [TS]

  one [TS]

  yeah sure here is here's another because [TS]

  again i got time code so i can play all [TS]

  these collapse here's another class I'd [TS]

  say classic John syracuse a moment from [TS]

  the episode to episode i think that we [TS]

  skip over the douche commercial because [TS]

  my wife really [TS]

  please be more specific [TS]

  now that is the definition of a clip [TS]

  oh yeah that is but you know it's [TS]

  there's the the the waterfall and the [TS]

  whole it's not a good scene [TS]

  it's passed earlier it is not a good [TS]

  scene I felt not so fresh after watching [TS]

  that movie I could have used a douche [TS]

  commercial i guess i got more Clips [TS]

  here's here's another good one about [TS]

  trying to understand [TS]

  episode 2 and then what does he do for [TS]

  his encore he rides a pig cow and falls [TS]

  off it in my notes that's referenced as [TS]

  the capering oh god the caper [TS]

  yeah and and that there's more oh [TS]

  there's more time code [TS]

  here's a good one more there here's [TS]

  another one don't wait the asteroid [TS]

  scene is another of those things that [TS]

  makes me think this movie is just [TS]

  composed of things from previous movies [TS]

  but Lucas has no idea what people liked [TS]

  and didn't like right so they'll say [TS]

  here's an exciting scene with a bar a [TS]

  bunch of aliens you as like that [TS]

  oh here's biru like Peru right you said [TS]

  you liked boba fett this character is [TS]

  called boba fett you like this character [TS]

  come on guys how can i make some good [TS]

  points wise words and you know nothing [TS]

  makes this podcast more successful than [TS]

  the impressions we do [TS]

  oh yeah we're good at the oh yeah and [TS]

  this is living proof we should talk [TS]

  speaking of rehashing things for [TS]

  previous movies we go to back to [TS]

  Tatooine and we get to see Mos Eisley [TS]

  spaceport we get to see wat Oh again hey [TS]

  hey everybody it's an EIU back any hey [TS]

  it's my own slave and its effect you [TS]

  might want to write little and his [TS]

  badness she still looks like a harem [TS]

  girl even though she's trying to look at [TS]

  spicuous that's kinda stupid i used to [TS]

  own you remember and [TS]

  yeah remember the way we use the whip [TS]

  you [TS]

  that's awesome i sold your mother [TS]

  that's not a problem is it okay to kill [TS]

  someone else I'll give you her number [TS]

  you could come [TS]

  oh this is a sitcom opportunity how I [TS]

  sold your mother [TS]

  yep okay with my finest moments go to go [TS]

  talk about him that the kids always [TS]

  demand you know it's like due to 210 210 [TS]

  and and i have but i can't do I have to [TS]

  do Steve's water reaches over 10 the [TS]

  ebay there's one got a little bit of a [TS]

  list there at the end of that question I [TS]

  don't know what happened there I had [TS]

  totally sure why your children demand [TS]

  wat Oh David bed sound I know [TS]

  well no not asking for water is only get [TS]

  social services very dollars and stack I [TS]

  think I said Thursday ok to Otto daddy [TS]

  do did he do they have listened to the [TS]

  incomparable episodes more than they've [TS]

  seen the prequels which is as as a cheap [TS]

  as it should be [TS]

  we talked a lot about how one of the [TS]

  crushing problems with episode 2 and the [TS]

  prequels in general is the bureaucracy [TS]

  and how it's not exciting instead it's [TS]

  very bureaucratic and this is a short [TS]

  clip that that emphasizes that point [TS]

  that was listed as one of a one of the [TS]

  listener Drew's favorites here is so [TS]

  Palpatine takes over and my note there [TS]

  is this would be more exciting if it [TS]

  weren't so bureaucratic it's literally [TS]

  like I am now the supreme leader of this [TS]

  Republic what forms do i need to fill [TS]

  out now scandalize from the various [TS]

  system on a forms taxation that he's [TS]

  appointing the sanitation Commissioner [TS]

  for people who donated a lot just [TS]

  campaigns the dog catcher will be [TS]

  replaced i like the idea of the emperor [TS]

  has a small-town mayor he's got a good [TS]

  grip you know he's got grease all the [TS]

  other the palms of the guys who act the [TS]

  other ISM yep [TS]

  yeah exactly right I'm getting the [TS]

  impression from all these clips that [TS]

  episode 2 is kind of terrible [TS]

  well we have a lengthy episode Steve [TS]

  which you can check it out but seven is [TS]

  gonna be awesome right guys it's all my [TS]

  options minutes if you cannot tell me [TS]

  it's the beginning of the year it's time [TS]

  for options different screenwriter [TS]

  director and actors i think that's a [TS]

  good start so uh mr. Jeff Jeff [TS]

  youngstrom says my favorite in concept [TS]

  my youngster young we call me young it's [TS]

  like Young's exactly right from he said [TS]

  his favorite incomparable moment was [TS]

  actually in the kiki's delivery service [TS]

  episode and it involved [TS]

  John syracuse a startling Merlin man [TS]

  with his own podcast references that [TS]

  Merlin doesn't even remember and I think [TS]

  of two clips to illustrate this man she [TS]

  walks back to her her house along that [TS]

  same road that Merlin had to walk along [TS]

  to get a mcdonalds right that's a deep [TS]

  catalog you cut out cut out all these [TS]

  Merlin any preferences I've got here so [TS]

  rarely I have to go for all them we [TS]

  couldn't write a bike cause people throw [TS]

  trash at you was florida now let's talk [TS]

  about the one where you stayed if you [TS]

  were if you were ever gonna chill here [TS]

  especially since it was no shoulder [TS]

  remember she wanted back on the beach [TS]

  along that winding Mountain Road and [TS]

  she's walking in there is no shoulder [TS]

  and there's no anything like that don't [TS]

  watch it you'll get around it makes [TS]

  sense trust me it within the canon of [TS]

  your life and make sense yes it does [TS]

  this someone hopefully it's good that [TS]

  you're around to tell Merlin what parts [TS]

  of the life of candidates anything he [TS]

  said on the podcast gets written down [TS]

  and we're gonna go back and low Marlon [TS]

  Marlon did walk along a road with no [TS]

  shoulder and barely did he find the [TS]

  mcdonalds and bring the mission it's on [TS]

  when you saw one set of footprints John [TS]

  scaring you send people walk single file [TS]

  down the numbers and just make sure that [TS]

  John if he don't he's recording mp3 make [TS]

  sure he's if set up before he sends it [TS]

  because sometimes John doesn't always [TS]

  work computer behind partage zips it up [TS]

  before I sense you know after me lucky [TS]

  charms [TS]

  how's he supposed to send it if he's if [TS]

  it up well you gotta do what you gotta [TS]

  compressive Merlin cannon joke only [TS]

  growing and I can do those and sometimes [TS]

  bronze [TS]

  remember them so really only me but I'm [TS]

  not hearing anything about Merlin's can [TS]

  and I'm hearing it back when you got a [TS]

  cannon like me you know they brag about [TS]

  it [TS]

  what does that mean you can't like that [TS]

  you know you don't want to do it after [TS]

  after after literally after dark that [TS]

  was in the after dark and enjoy that [TS]

  there's no desk pounding and understand [TS]

  a bell [TS]

  you know several bills well at least we [TS]

  finally roped in Maryland to that in the [TS]

  end like the beating was just me and [TS]

  probably Merlin remembered his own life [TS]

  and appreciated the rest of your life [TS]

  we're talking about no idea what made [TS]

  sense to the Merlin head can i know [TS]

  thats all set but I like my like how [TS]

  John says you can cut this part out and [TS]

  instead i played in the best to your [TS]

  episode that I don't really know what's [TS]

  going on there that's going to name the [TS]

  episode man cannon and kill yes well can [TS]

  like that you don't need all at once is [TS]

  talking oh my oh and speaking of which [TS]

  my that's coming on the that is coming [TS]

  up but not from listening general ya [TS]

  didn't say that he said anyway listen [TS]

  jeff says you can tell the John knows he [TS]

  has to say all this because it's the [TS]

  perfect job for the moment but he's [TS]

  simultaneously horrified that these [TS]

  words are coming out of his mouth [TS]

  I Joe steel sent me a nice list [TS]

  he didn't concern himself with episode [TS]

  titles so this is joe steals list 2092 [TS]

  Frank a road in saying he enjoyed this [TS]

  moment where we discussed what truly is [TS]

  the most incendiary thing you could talk [TS]

  about me and comparable I i have a [TS]

  question are we going to all be friends [TS]

  after this episode we are high because [TS]

  you and your friends and whatever [TS]

  happens in here is just all part of the [TS]

  podcast and it's it's all neutralized [TS]

  it's like you we rub decontamination gel [TS]

  on our bodies [TS]

  afterward who have to tell you I will [TS]

  talk about some controversial stuff but [TS]

  I was looking over these questions and [TS]

  it's tough [TS]

  even I wouldn't touch on Twitter so yeah [TS]

  I know I know well we're gonna just [TS]

  we're going to dip our toe in it and the [TS]

  beauty of all right we will all just [TS]

  have a good time here the people what's [TS]

  gonna happen those people's iphones are [TS]

  going to like explode when they hear [TS]

  what we're saying be like now I can't [TS]

  and that's good that's what makes for [TS]

  good broadcasting that's Star Trek [TS]

  debate club nothing will make the [TS]

  internet exploded more but Frank really [TS]

  like the moment where we're Brianna was [TS]

  like are we going to be friends after [TS]

  this like maybe not we'll see then that [TS]

  I sident sure we would and then she said [TS]

  she hated the original Star Trek so I [TS]

  was kind of boxed in there was nothing I [TS]

  could do that was good thank thank you [TS]

  Frank listener aileen who is a very nice [TS]

  person who I actually met in person and [TS]

  I did not tell her to send this in and [TS]

  yet she enjoyed this clip where I do an [TS]

  impression [TS]

  sorry Erica I want to say come with me [TS]

  if you want to live but it's actually [TS]

  come with me if you want to live [TS]

  we'd like to live by either come with me [TS]

  then if you like to live if you want to [TS]

  die right here in this in this whatever [TS]

  this place is it's released [TS]

  this place is it's released [TS]

  reigns with the like I had no idea what [TS]

  he Allen was in this film [TS]

  lots of people like Michael Biehn I'm [TS]

  not one of them but a lot of people [TS]

  might be in the Terminator that's fine [TS]

  got a certain something man it's a is [TS]

  equal it is [TS]

  mmm yeah I'm saying he's some sort of [TS]

  has been no no I'll see myself out but [TS]

  yeah no no we'll see you out [TS]

  so this was dan morris final appearances [TS]

  yeah that's right maybe fall out of the [TS]

  top 10 next year [TS]

  no I'm going I'm coming back and I'm [TS]

  bringing more puns with okay so uh mr. [TS]

  Frank road in front Kruger and he said [TS]

  oh my it's hard to to why would you say [TS]

  that right is good and long as you are a [TS]

  sad strange little man that was gonna be [TS]

  mine [TS]

  oh and you have my pity go by [TS]

  oh I shall write a puppy [TS]

  oh my oh my link you can anyone explain [TS]

  how the George Takei decay sorry [TS]

  impression came to be this know any of [TS]

  this toy story but you know as long as [TS]

  already looks the mistress happens it's [TS]

  really hard to restrain myself from [TS]

  joining in [TS]

  I was just wondering the same thing my [TS]

  past self funded agree it I I it turns [TS]

  out i think it's my fault i think [TS]

  somebody said something that I [TS]

  misinterpreted and it's all my yes I [TS]

  take off all the all the fault of [TS]

  spending 20 minutes doing terrible [TS]

  George too kind to a pressurizing the [TS]

  outbreak monkey of Miami outbreak monkey [TS]

  of many things including I remember that [TS]

  is just delightful that you're the one [TS]

  who sent that went off the rails [TS]

  yeah no one else does that sometimes [TS]

  almost that almost never happens people [TS]

  he's innocent later but he does that [TS]

  yeah yeah that was totally my fault I [TS]

  didn't hit it off i didn't admit it we [TS]

  are all that but it was totally my fault [TS]

  i know that it's certainly recorded last [TS]

  night he would not shut up about the [TS]

  star wars holidays you know talked about [TS]

  it for now we should really have gone [TS]

  moved on and talked about seventies [TS]

  commercials anything else yesterday we [TS]

  talked about youjizz job by the way I [TS]

  think we might have [TS]

  Steve I'm not sure we broached that's [TS]

  going to be the name of your star wars a [TS]

  tribute band is John job [TS]

  sorry that was my favorite moment of the [TS]

  year and it's a band name that only [TS]

  three people understand this the right [TS]

  it's the right yeah exactly right now [TS]

  they're terrible people anyway listen [TS]

  Frank that he just said oh my it's hard [TS]

  to choose but when he finally Cho Cho's [TS]

  was the infinite Lee long debate we had [TS]

  about whether a certain cat can talk [TS]

  it all depends on why you think she [TS]

  could hear the cabinet be anyways you [TS]

  think you could hear the cat because it [TS]

  was part of her witch's powers then you [TS]

  feel like shit when she gets her powers [TS]

  back against your comments about you [TS]

  hear the cap but if you if you think [TS]

  that she hears the cat when she's [TS]

  younger because it's just a way that [TS]

  young it's sort of like the total like a [TS]

  way young people comfort themselves [TS]

  something imaginary and suddenly she [TS]

  finds herself growing up to the point [TS]

  where it's like you know what I don't [TS]

  believe in Santa anymore and also the [TS]

  cat is just a meowing thing then you [TS]

  don't want her to hear the cat the end [TS]

  because that would be a regression and [TS]

  that's why I think we're marlins coming [TS]

  from [TS]

  I thought the key yeah definitely i'm [TS]

  free i thank god for four years of [TS]

  college I I felt like it wasn't like an [TS]

  imaginary friend that but was an [TS]

  imaginary friend that was we real kind [TS]

  of and then and then when it's called a [TS]

  friend Marla enough friend which one of [TS]

  my imaginary friend that is real is a [TS]

  friend that i think that's that's a [TS]

  contradiction in terms of topping on [TS]

  debate club is is the cat but the real [TS]

  forget really talking about with the [TS]

  whole movie though basically being her [TS]

  growing up it to me it felt like she [TS]

  gets her flying back that's good there [TS]

  are some things you know that you can [TS]

  maybe revisit as you get older and [TS]

  there's some things will never be the [TS]

  same again and that guy's right was one [TS]

  of those things that you know that's [TS]

  just how it's not how it is now you're [TS]

  not gonna be able to catch about you but [TS]

  it shouldn't be because she no longer [TS]

  has the magic ability has to be because [TS]

  the cat was never talking to her and it [TS]

  was just something that children do to [TS]

  play pretend to comfort themselves [TS]

  during her transition that's why it was [TS]

  so shocking when you know why you're [TS]

  just meowing why are you talking like a [TS]

  cat it's like the cat has always been [TS]

  talking there's never been a Santa you [TS]

  just you didn't know that [TS]

  yeah so next year I'm going to start a [TS]

  podcast that's entirely devoted to [TS]

  whether the cat and kiki's delivery [TS]

  service talks or not because I think [TS]

  there's a lot there to explore we've got [TS]

  another hour or two on that did you see [TS]

  the documentary at jason i think having [TS]

  less than I [TS]

  yeah and the clip is the only part you [TS]

  need to see friends but it's worth [TS]

  watching anyway [TS]

  yeah the the miyazaki documentaries on [TS]

  itunes as Marlon pointed out and [TS]

  miyazaki's movies are not nice but [TS]

  Kiki's on blue right now it is i've got [TS]

  i've got the blue right now this episode [TS]

  of the incomparable is also brought to [TS]

  you by me the guy who does the [TS]

  incomparable thanks for listening to the [TS]

  uncomfortable in 2014 and now in 2015 [TS]

  that will get up our listeners are [TS]

  special in some way 10 he's taking it to [TS]

  a whole new level but anyways [TS]

  congratulations on another fantastic [TS]

  year so many great moments to choose [TS]

  from the ones i'm picking maybe a little [TS]

  too on-the-nose since the episode titles [TS]

  often reference them specifically so one [TS]

  of his examples is he enjoyed Brianna [TS]

  almost picking the voyage home is the [TS]

  worst star trek movie when it kind of [TS]

  seems she didn't realize Tony had picked [TS]

  it as his favorite in the very previous [TS]

  round you got for a long time it was the [TS]

  one with the whales because I'm sorry [TS]

  Tony doesn't even know the numbers she [TS]

  doesn't need to know the number of me so [TS]

  dog [TS]

  I'm sorry don't worry Tony this is a [TS]

  safe place hey I think your tight [TS]

  leaders meeting about Star Trek for a [TS]

  voice on the way what's not to love you [TS]

  sorry I'm emotional because someone [TS]

  threatening my whales don't spread [TS]

  Tony's works just like some movie the [TS]

  movie the fun movie and then a motional [TS]

  star trek for is a great star trek it is [TS]

  everything all right minded people agree [TS]

  with that I agree [TS]

  see I'm right-minded I let's set the bar [TS]

  is only about three inches off the [TS]

  ground now that's the clue creation is [TS]

  the bar star trek what you may finally [TS]

  transferred by our drink five possibly [TS]

  amazing listener Nathan also likes ah [TS]

  the repeated theory of comedy references [TS]

  in the you need an agent of chaos [TS]

  episode this saturday night live episode [TS]

  he also references John's deep catalog [TS]

  references tomorrow in life it is funny [TS]

  when you're bringing a trivia for [TS]

  somebody's life and they don't remember [TS]

  it that said that is that was a special [TS]

  moment [TS]

  many good episodes where can't speak to [TS]

  pick a specific moment p create a real [TS]

  imaginary friend it's all bbc2 me [TS]

  picking my shorts but that's probably [TS]

  enough i'd also like to give a shout-out [TS]

  to the epic sprawling wonderful episode [TS]

  200 the picking specific moments they [TS]

  would get a little too meta meta best [TS]

  Nathan Goins no Nathan you may remember [TS]

  we actually referenced him in episode [TS]

  200 at one point because he made a [TS]

  little chart [TS]

  he's the guy who made the people who [TS]

  talk to other ppl charts and then he [TS]

  also made the charts [TS]

  agencies grab the clickable chart that [TS]

  explains all of the different choices of [TS]

  a certain topic that that we often do on [TS]

  this very episode on his website which i [TS]

  will put in the show notes that it's a [TS]

  it's a topic that Steve is very is a [TS]

  it's near and dear to steve's heart [TS]

  Steve showcase and i have no idea what [TS]

  you're referring should i mentioned was [TS]

  now where should I just let you [TS]

  mentioned it later in the show we'll get [TS]

  to it i don't i think john had something [TS]

  up his sleeve [TS]

  according to what he said last year so [TS]

  now i can receive it was like a fever [TS]

  dream and whenever you call when I was [TS]

  thinking I you're right i do think that [TS]

  I had an idea that it was gonna just [TS]

  blow this thing wide open but i'm pretty [TS]

  sure i was a hallucination enough so [TS]

  that that's a we'll come back to that [TS]

  clip that Nathan that references Nathan [TS]

  and actually it in that clip when we [TS]

  play it it will you will hear someone [TS]

  appeal to Nathan to make the page that [TS]

  he in fact me which is pretty great [TS]

  so for me I'm gonna go first this time [TS]

  because i went last last time and just [TS]

  say I think I think that how I sold your [TS]

  mother episode is it might be my [TS]

  favorite identity that is a really funny [TS]

  episode all the way through thanks Dan [TS]

  for the episode title by the way I like [TS]

  the board game draft the game show doing [TS]

  another game show was a lot of fun I [TS]

  like that trivial pursuit game we played [TS]

  or at least the first like five hours of [TS]

  it before it got really really tedious [TS]

  and and Monty one game on TV and and [TS]

  thank you for saving us because we were [TS]

  all gonna die if you didn't win but we [TS]

  were all still bitter that he did [TS]

  yeah I no idea i would still be [TS]

  appointed for you do better with Ewbank [TS]

  next time star wars trivial pursuit [TS]

  I'm happy that we finally did the [TS]

  Babylon 5 episode that had been promised [TS]

  since before episode 1 was recorded and [TS]

  actually finally happened [TS]

  we did a lot of drafts this year [TS]

  computers robots video games computer [TS]

  games that was a lot of fun i want to [TS]

  mention the butter zone episode episode [TS]

  200 feel like it was three hours long [TS]

  which is totally insane but I thought [TS]

  that they were actually two really great [TS]

  episodes inside it the one that we [TS]

  recorded live in the studio in San [TS]

  Francisco talking about sort of like [TS]

  growing up and being interested in geeky [TS]

  things when you're growing up and and [TS]

  all of that was really great and then we [TS]

  also have the crazy listener draft in [TS]

  that same episode [TS]

  which was a lot of fun too so that was a [TS]

  that was a lot of fun to put together i [TS]

  really like the fact that we we have now [TS]

  done in the incomparable not just in [TS]

  2014 but also incoming 2013 we have done [TS]

  three episodes covering nearly [TS]

  three-and-a-half-million of Star Wars [TS]

  Episode 7 which is not coming out for a [TS]

  year [TS]

  it's alright yes we buy brought back [TS]

  star trek as was my was my goal with the [TS]

  star trek debate club I'm get glad we [TS]

  gave star trek some air time I really [TS]

  enjoyed the crazy TV pitch episode these [TS]

  are all good ideas that might be my [TS]

  favorite title for the year it is meant [TS]

  by rana CLE and yeah i might enjoy doing [TS]

  the TV podcast and total party kill with [TS]

  many of you same people those were a lot [TS]

  of fun too even though they don't count [TS]

  because they weren't part of the [TS]

  incomparable proper they were a lot of [TS]

  fun so that's my list [TS]

  Monty do you have some favors the [TS]

  episode over i'm confused [TS]

  Jason always goes like I know I'm not [TS]

  stretch enough i'm switching it up i [TS]

  want to end on a high note or a low note [TS]

  Monty i do you have any favorites from [TS]

  this year all my favorite episode was [TS]

  the thrill a minute of your first [TS]

  location game that haha every second of [TS]

  which was gold also my shoulder party [TS]

  total party kill so it does not it was a [TS]

  bonus track to but yet appeared in the [TS]

  incomparable did and my second favorite [TS]

  is episode 200 were a number of [TS]

  listeners wrote and said that was their [TS]

  memorable episode haha i don't know why [TS]

  they forgot to mention it for this [TS]

  wrap-up interesting episode but I assure [TS]

  them that will not be forgotten [TS]

  well maybe money what you should do is [TS]

  pick one of those clips is your favorite [TS]

  clear why that just seems silly [TS]

  only a crazy person would do such a [TS]

  thing [TS]

  there's room in the universe for two [TS]

  clips living side-by-side no there isn't [TS]

  no then once they meet they they destroy [TS]

  each other in an antique lip explosion [TS]

  yeah that might be tell you what Steve [TS]

  you pick one of those clips in the next [TS]

  year i'll pick a Skeletor clip [TS]

  sounds good interesting shake-up [TS]

  crisscross anything else Monty her own [TS]

  glory [TS]

  yeah just ok fair enough Dan more'n [TS]

  whatever what about you what did you [TS]

  like from the from the podcast this year [TS]

  so many good things I it seems like the [TS]

  episode to podcast really has gotten [TS]

  some legs its own so I bet about plus [TS]

  there was somebody said in lots of time [TS]

  code so it made it really easy i did [TS]

  make really easy but it was delightful i [TS]

  would agree like this and i really [TS]

  enjoyed our multiple hours on episode 7 [TS]

  and I think we have accurately predicted [TS]

  everything that could possibly come up [TS]

  in that movie so that's great [TS]

  covered in addition I really liked both [TS]

  of our our board game and our game show [TS]

  which we just lady clip form moments ago [TS]

  and let's see I think you know episode [TS]

  200 I think sort of stands on its own as [TS]

  a testament to our are over this yeah [TS]

  take that for what you will i enjoyed [TS]

  our discussion of urban fantasy novels [TS]

  set in London [TS]

  yeah and and the expanse which I [TS]

  mentioned up the top but i like talking [TS]

  about you i actually got to be back on [TS]

  book clubs this year that was fun [TS]

  because I you guys finally picked to do [TS]

  topics of things i had already read huh [TS]

  which is accident that's just what i [TS]

  like and uh yeah I think that was those [TS]

  were my favorite moment or I think from [TS]

  this year [TS]

  thanks Dan oh yeah thanks Steve [TS]

  no we're going to you we're not going to [TS]

  defend what I'll find you know I'm [TS]

  really confused i might just leave it so [TS]

  no go ahead so you run off Mike it's [TS]

  your turn [TS]

  I'm going our house or I'm not gonna [TS]

  save you two last go ahead i promise you [TS]

  i will not pick a clip from last year's [TS]

  clip show that I guarantee i'm sure you [TS]

  won't i don't have a clip loaded from [TS]

  last year's clip show [TS]

  oh I once again I have favorite episodes [TS]

  and favorite moments starting favorite [TS]

  episodes i think the best draft of the [TS]

  year at least for me was 192 murderous [TS]

  room by which was a robot draft i think [TS]

  in particular that the thing that was [TS]

  nice about this draft as we managed to [TS]

  keep our if using under control and we [TS]

  got through more than three pics yeah [TS]

  which is a nice change of pace [TS]

  it'll never happen again I feel like we [TS]

  could have done another 17 hours of of [TS]

  computer and console game drive we [TS]

  really couldn't just simply and some [TS]

  time because we just couldn't we [TS]

  couldn't keep it under control we should [TS]

  maybe make a rule about drafts that the [TS]

  opening discussion of any given pic has [TS]

  to be a minute or less [TS]

  Wow I'll take that under advisement just [TS]

  a thought just a thought there could be [TS]

  subsequent discussion but I can talk [TS]

  really fast enough [TS]

  that's true John we know we just asked [TS]

  Jason speeded up afterwards everything [TS]

  idea all your comments will be [TS]

  compressed into or expanded into one [TS]

  minute perplexing couple drafted I'm [TS]

  talking robot is gonna be great yeah all [TS]

  right everybody's excited now yay [TS]

  you heard a smart speed will have dumps [TS]

  p.m. that is the speed at which i live [TS]

  my life I also really liked episode 212 [TS]

  a MacGyver in the making that was our [TS]

  toy story episode is a great movie [TS]

  it's a really great panel and I was also [TS]

  there [TS]

  here's how you know that this that it [TS]

  was an engrossing discussion on toy [TS]

  story there's there's about a minute [TS]

  early on where John is discussing the [TS]

  fact that would he was mean and early [TS]

  drafts of the script [TS]

  over the course of this minute the [TS]

  following four phrases are uttered the [TS]

  mean woody angle if you look for it you [TS]

  can see glimpses of the mean woody they [TS]

  just kept tweaking and tweaking it and [TS]

  the mean woody is on display a one-track [TS]

  mind interested I let all four of those [TS]

  statements go by without saying a single [TS]

  word that is how it started I was like [TS]

  discussion but you saved them to bring [TS]

  them up now that's practically shows for [TS]

  my friends I let's see i like the old [TS]

  movie club episodes again I like to give [TS]

  them a shout out because i feel like [TS]

  people are afraid of old movie club and [TS]

  they don't want to watch old movies so [TS]

  they don't get the kind of a claim that [TS]

  some other episode to do but they're [TS]

  great they're funny you should go watch [TS]

  some old movies and learn something [TS]

  about film history and you know what [TS]

  happens when you're watching a movie you [TS]

  press play and vu boom boom pow towel [TS]

  yeah you missed you missed that kind of [TS]

  area don't man when you don't watch your [TS]

  movie clip also miss Cloris Leachman [TS]

  naked just saying well yeah now i'm [TS]

  really thrown off the game from the [TS]

  heart [TS]

  I had okay Wow get it together drink [TS]

  ok I'm back [TS]

  ok let's do yeah I also really enjoyed [TS]

  episode 188 gameshow to not only i [TS]

  enjoyed our utter ineptitude during the [TS]

  match game segment we are the worst [TS]

  financial players in history that was in [TS]

  some of us some of us weren't even drunk [TS]

  I mean that maybe that's the problem [TS]

  that game is best played well drunk and [TS]

  and/or Jack Klugman and lastly again and [TS]

  like others here I wanted to give a [TS]

  shout-out to the mega episode episode [TS]

  200 butter zone [TS]

  hmm particularly the listener draft [TS]

  because it was really really cool to get [TS]

  to hear from the listeners in their own [TS]

  voices especially since they were saying [TS]

  nice things for a change it was said [TS]

  it's kind of nice [TS]

  which brings me to to some favorite [TS]

  moments huh for stuff might [TS]

  second favorite moment of 2014 which [TS]

  came from that butter zone episode I and [TS]

  that was when listener Etienne picked as [TS]

  his all-time favorite incomparable [TS]

  moment me in the 2013 clip show picking [TS]

  me in the 2012click show picking [TS]

  listeners Lori Janice and Chad in the [TS]

  2011 clip show picking me picking [TS]

  Skeletor in the TV fantasy character [TS]

  draft that was a great great moment that [TS]

  was that well it was only my side [TS]

  let's listen in no no no I'm not going [TS]

  to play seems number two pick i will [TS]

  only play Steve number one pick what's [TS]

  your number-one pick Steve the problem [TS]

  is you gotta play them both because [TS]

  they're not linked see that's the [TS]

  problem but by will point out that my [TS]

  favorite moment of 2014 is listener been [TS]

  picking listener Etienne picking me [TS]

  picking listeners lower Janice and Chad [TS]

  picking me picking Skeletor [TS]

  yes now let's listen to both of those in [TS]

  one convenient clip [TS]

  yes I know it's listen a chance to get [TS]

  really have to listen to him [TS]

  oh yeah is your fault you sit there and [TS]

  you my pic this is what I'm making you [TS]

  do steve is trippin comparable was there [TS]

  a more memorable moment then when Steve [TS]

  let's draft to the patron saint of [TS]

  vaguely threatening recurring villains [TS]

  skillet all for the TV character [TS]

  drafting episode 50 a glee [TS]

  it's nearly three years later and still [TS]

  stands out in my mind it may therefore [TS]

  surprise lessness to learn that [TS]

  memorable as that moment was i'm not [TS]

  actually picking it no I'm in fact [TS]

  picking Steve lots from the 2013 recap [TS]

  episode picking himself became haha 2012 [TS]

  recap episode picking himself in the [TS]

  2011 recap episode drafting Skeletor [TS]

  episode 58 Steve I thought you could [TS]

  have some more ammo for recursive clip [TS]

  loop its skeletal all the way down [TS]

  unless you this is an enabler atl that's [TS]

  beautiful enabling Bless You South [TS]

  Africa ATM you are the best [TS]

  remember way back in the early part of [TS]

  2013 right around the time when we're [TS]

  being called all dead inside because we [TS]

  don't enjoy dumb candy puns in our video [TS]

  game movies [TS]

  yes I do i do remember that i don't know [TS]

  if you recall this particular thing [TS]

  Jason but we did an episode and awful [TS]

  lot like this one [TS]

  yes but january first of 2013 [TS]

  that's right you do remember it's it was [TS]

  a year in review episode 4 2012 is [TS]

  similar to this episode yeah similar [TS]

  yeah very similar and it was pretty good [TS]

  i mean we said some things we had some [TS]

  lights and clips play some clips [TS]

  yeah but one of those clips stands above [TS]

  all the rest it does really and that is [TS]

  why as one of my favorite podcast [TS]

  moments from 2013 i hereby pick the clip [TS]

  in which I picked the clip in which i [TS]

  picked Skeletor in our 2011 TV fantasy [TS]

  draft do we have a clip we do let's go [TS]

  to the clips so as far as favorite [TS]

  moments from various episodes first of [TS]

  all we're going to do clips in this [TS]

  shirt so sure John circumstances it's [TS]

  great when you drop clips yeah showed [TS]

  that then I'm going to pick the part in [TS]

  the 2011 clip show episode like the [TS]

  Skeletor clip at my goal my goal is to [TS]

  create a reversing the polarity loop and [TS]

  eventually takes over the entire annual [TS]

  clip show podcast if we survive that [TS]

  watching too much Star Trek sneeze on [TS]

  tempo cornfield and Steve I loved I [TS]

  loved it when we remembered how funny [TS]

  Skeletor was from last year in this [TS]

  year's clip show that look back on last [TS]

  year so listen Laurie liked the [TS]

  cancelled TV show draft but she says the [TS]

  TV character draft made her laugh from [TS]

  beginning to end so i guess my favorite [TS]

  moment steve was the drafting of [TS]

  Skeletor yes mr. Janus said I laughed so [TS]

  much of the character draft that my [TS]

  sister thought i was nuts [TS]

  well there's a good chance you're [TS]

  welcome mr. Chad road in simply saying [TS]

  Skeletor [TS]

  I don't need to be sitting pretty well [TS]

  i'm gonna go with one that's a that's [TS]

  close to my heart for various reasons [TS]

  and I know somebody's just raring to [TS]

  pick him so I better grab him now i'm [TS]

  going to pick a pic Skeletor from the [TS]

  last little universe [TS]

  yeah i do not think you should be on the [TS]

  show with Tom servo well the beauty of [TS]

  Skeletor is that he can die every [TS]

  weekend yet miraculously reappeared from [TS]

  under the pile of rocks that he was [TS]

  buried under in subsequent holds so if [TS]

  Anthony tries to send Skeletor the [TS]

  cornfield what happens is back the next [TS]

  week [TS]

  that's the intention of the show's [TS]

  spoilers no spoilers alright okay for [TS]

  your you're pretty clearly it's crucial [TS]

  to my plot which which I look forward to [TS]

  making up on the candy bar [TS]

  yeah that's appropriate but it's [TS]

  Skeletor is the alpha and the omega of [TS]

  our podcast he won that draft by killing [TS]

  everyone else [TS]

  yes well I'm hoping this episode [TS]

  actually airs in 2013 so that i can then [TS]

  pick ya the 2014 clip show 2013 clever [TS]

  of me picking the clip where we played [TS]

  Skeletor clip [TS]

  good luck future Steve you know the the [TS]

  best part about that clip is uh is is [TS]

  dan's reaction actually I've over the [TS]

  years as i hear clips of that clip the [TS]

  part that I appreciate the most advanced [TS]

  reaction because not only does he he [TS]

  laughed but then his immediate responses [TS]

  i did not see that one coming [TS]

  our way back to reality yeah hold on i [TS]

  can't actually tell when the cooks for [TS]

  over the North did you forget [TS]

  did you forget one clip Skeletor all the [TS]

  way down he says they're Etienne [TS]

  incidentally French for stereo we have [TS]

  not been seen in the same room at the [TS]

  same time that's interesting interesting [TS]

  so I and then what I have one last click [TS]

  to play it but it's another favorite [TS]

  moment from a listener [TS]

  hi this is Ben from somerville [TS]

  massachusetts my favorite moment on the [TS]

  incomparable podcast was from episode [TS]

  200 where a listener Etienne picked [TS]

  Steve lots of picking up speed lots of [TS]

  picking from the 2012 recap episode [TS]

  listeners picking Steve Lud's picking [TS]

  from the television character episode [TS]

  keep going out or is it over our we are [TS]

  done [TS]

  oh I just want to hear still going [TS]

  wow yeah i'm not sure what to say to [TS]

  that other than that i'm going to down [TS]

  the rest of my beer at this point in [TS]

  your honor i really enjoyed this moment [TS]

  you know I I feel like we won't have [TS]

  really reached the pinnacle of this [TS]

  whole thing until someone makes an image [TS]

  chart on the internet fingers with lines [TS]

  and like sort of like the diagram of [TS]

  primer or primer everyone whatever it [TS]

  someone needs to make an image it right [TS]

  now it'sit's you can hold it in your [TS]

  mind but it eventually at some point [TS]

  we're going to graphical representation [TS]

  will get that guy that did the [TS]

  relationships graph that that a you put [TS]

  together for like the first hundred and [TS]

  fifty episodes have you seen that [TS]

  amazing yeah that's the only my god [TS]

  Nathan and actually a different listener [TS]

  to put it to people take up Jon's [TS]

  challenge and make graphical [TS]

  representations of the recursive clip [TS]

  loop which we now just extended and I [TS]

  forced you guys to listen live to the [TS]

  whole the whole thing this time faced [TS]

  out in the middle of it and thought it [TS]

  was done at one point when people start [TS]

  laughing that's all [TS]

  nope this is this is I thought it was [TS]

  during lab real-time nothing ever and [TS]

  side did not see that coming [TS]

  this is the first time in my life I've [TS]

  had real regrets yeah [TS]

  honestly I i was going to let the clip [TS]

  loop died this year but then you know [TS]

  the listeners you gotta give them what [TS]

  they want my god [TS]

  by the way this is this this was not me [TS]

  just trying to extend the clip the clip [TS]

  loop this was genuinely my favorite [TS]

  moment of the year was hilarious when [TS]

  they came out with that butter zone you [TS]

  can tell i love it because I do the [TS]

  thing that Jason does when the podcast [TS]

  goes off the rails any cracks that oh [TS]

  it's like you've been beaten up except [TS]

  I've been humble so the truth is I did [TS]

  not formulate that joke I had a listener [TS]

  it Lister 88 did write in and say I want [TS]

  to pick Steve and give it and fuel you [TS]

  know his clip loop and and separately [TS]

  the other listing wrote and said I [TS]

  imagine somebody is going to pick Steve [TS]

  so I want to pick whoever that person is [TS]

  so we actually happened that the [TS]

  listeners court correctly into it the [TS]

  clip would happen ee in the United [TS]

  episode so I went back to them and said [TS]

  record those that'll be that'll be good [TS]

  somebody totally came from them and it [TS]

  was it was pretty pretty hilarious i do [TS]

  think it would have been funny to play [TS]

  the whole clip again after the second we [TS]

  enter comment but as the episode is [TS]

  already around 17 hours and 10 points [TS]

  understand i thought about playing it [TS]

  like five times the speed but I don't [TS]

  know [TS]

  yeah all right I got a few more moments [TS]

  ok Steve I have no more you haven't [TS]

  taken up enough time so by all means let [TS]

  you want me to play the scale of the [TS]

  clip again I got it right here it's only [TS]

  like Sgt slaughter let you all that [TS]

  beautiful Skeletor foot fine its listen [TS]

  I'm gonna start to have an aversion [TS]

  therapy for like South African accent [TS]

  yeah no place now I do like that my [TS]

  mispronunciation of listener Etienne's [TS]

  name is now immortalized forever [TS]

  yeah yeah and I also I this this is the [TS]

  first year i've called out listeners [TS]

  Lori Janice and Chad because I feel like [TS]

  they shouldn't be blameless in this [TS]

  whole thing is i agree now and now that [TS]

  we've done this when i played it live [TS]

  with your reactions to it now are our [TS]

  reactions underneath the clip will now [TS]

  be stored in memory forever so yeah [TS]

  podcast is over another victim of [TS]

  Skeletor [TS]

  ok last just a few moments 177 six pixel [TS]

  sword i like the rousing acapella [TS]

  rendition of the Super Mario [TS]

  brothers theme that leads off that yeah [TS]

  doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo [TS]

  doo-doo-doo-doo-doo did it dude did it [TS]

  did it did it duty to didn't do [TS]

  doo-doo-doot-doot doot-doo brand I [TS]

  episode 194 a real imaginary friend are [TS]

  Keke episode at approximately an hour [TS]

  and 10 minutes anytime chosen Jason [TS]

  makes a series of dick jokes about [TS]

  Zeppelin's and you don't always get [TS]

  those from Jason so I thought it was [TS]

  worth logging she's looking up at the [TS]

  sky and she sees this up and going yeah [TS]

  combo in it and it's just a perfectly [TS]

  encapsulates the sort feeling of being [TS]

  13 years old I mean and losing your mojo [TS]

  visit kind of green road Zeppelin's are [TS]

  encompass my my 13 year old self [TS]

  perfectly you don't know where that [TS]

  Zeppelin's going you don't know how to [TS]

  plate this up it's gonna be okay right [TS]

  into things that might be a little too [TS]

  jiggly way that sometimes it's pointing [TS]

  up at weird hours of sexual desire like [TS]

  I'm sure why [TS]

  yeah you don't know it's like snow and [TS]

  then you fly into the Clocktower and [TS]

  deflate land on a building I didn't [TS]

  start it but I damn well finish their [TS]

  lung disease Steve's penis log where he [TS]

  just writes down every possible maximum [TS]

  related joke every podcast [TS]

  yep on a similar note i did this last [TS]

  year this is the underappreciated joke [TS]

  of the year last year it was Dan's fish [TS]

  fight button this year it's actually [TS]

  from total party killed 28 I don't care [TS]

  that it's not canon huh [TS]

  but but there's a sequence where we're [TS]

  hanging out with some Cobalt scientists [TS]

  i believe and they accidentally let [TS]

  loose a part of some sticky goo & and [TS]

  set off the fight that's been it's been [TS]

  threatening to break out for an extended [TS]

  period and Jason points out that it's [TS]

  the pot heard round the world and i [TS]

  thought that was lovely but your fish [TS]

  fight potter around the world that's it [TS]

  is your level 13 underappreciated joke [TS]

  of the year giant bonus track 186 be get [TS]

  carter to I said get carter i like it a [TS]

  bit where you're playing the stereolab [TS]

  cover to get Carter theme behind us that [TS]

  makes us sound like wild and swing and [TS]

  generally way cooler than we actually [TS]

  are in fact I think we should probably [TS]

  play background music behind all of our [TS]

  epic [TS]

  Melania improved invited guests good [TS]

  call [TS]

  195 peak rate around 119 I enjoy John [TS]

  Syracuse's sad tale about how he never [TS]

  got to play the pirate version of [TS]

  loadrunner where all of the little guys [TS]

  have I patches and parents don't wanna [TS]

  smack huh also towards the end of that [TS]

  episode we talk about sports a lot and [TS]

  you can hear Tony sindelar audibly [TS]

  suffering oh yeah it's very awkward haha [TS]

  another quick total party kill clip I [TS]

  episode 31 the impromptu cobol job [TS]

  interview i think is my favorite thing [TS]

  except this most recent campaign that's [TS]

  what I like the intern cobalt intern [TS]

  that's open to get a better job later [TS]

  that's right we run them through a [TS]

  couple of key questions yeah so where do [TS]

  you see yourself in five years you know [TS]

  any other Mountain pretty much yeah [TS]

  and the last thing this isn't actually [TS]

  part of the podcast it's more of a [TS]

  Twitter thing iĆ­ve really enjoy Jason's [TS]

  growing exasperation with the many many [TS]

  many people who can't believe we didn't [TS]

  mention their favorite thing and one of [TS]

  our list of so easy it's not a good show [TS]

  that NBC episode was the best episodes [TS]

  literally did I can't believe you didn't [TS]

  mention all other british shows ever [TS]

  made [TS]

  I can't believe it either it's never you [TS]

  should have mentioned this it's always I [TS]

  am outraged that you did not mention how [TS]

  could you not your shot [TS]

  yeah let's go your fire and ems arrest [TS]

  one yeah we didn't forget we didn't like [TS]

  it so we didn't mention it or we never [TS]

  heard you were apparently high on ether [TS]

  and help to mention this thing good [TS]

  point that only two people have ever [TS]

  seen I can't believe it [TS]

  how could you forget it want to give me [TS]

  the disappointments i'm very [TS]

  disappointed [TS]

  yeah you're the only person must be [TS]

  disappointed me as my dads who you [TS]

  thanks listeners recognizes friend and [TS]

  with the rest of us love you I love most [TS]

  solid hour [TS]

  yeah just saw it out this time good job [TS]

  Steve I got things to say about the [TS]

  podcast I appreciate it [TS]

  that's some some pre-work you did there [TS]

  I'm impressed i listened actually over [TS]

  the last couple of weeks to every [TS]

  episode that i was on this my god Wow in [TS]

  the car you know it wasn't like I was [TS]

  you know taking time apart from my real [TS]

  life okay good what happened bringing [TS]

  camp into the car no fault i usually try [TS]

  to have a little in the ashtray it's a [TS]

  little poo pourri it's good for boy do [TS]

  you groaning God and go ahead [TS]

  yeah I did grown as low even for me [TS]

  after that seems about right [TS]

  it's a disturbing experience listening [TS]

  to old episodes because i'll make the [TS]

  joke in the car that I'm about to make [TS]

  into my yes and I realized how utterly [TS]

  predictable said while I'm editing the [TS]

  podcast i will often laugh while [TS]

  somebody says something funny and hear [TS]

  myself laughing the exact same place at [TS]

  the same time if Tony where he tell you [TS]

  guys are three lines of pearl so I'm [TS]

  just gonna is not here some film at in [TS]

  forum [TS]

  yeah what you want to talk about [TS]

  freaking people out I realize now that I [TS]

  have the let's play clip sound effect [TS]

  here and I could just play it and you [TS]

  guys will know whether it's a clipper [TS]

  not so it's like no we're just talking [TS]

  and suddenly the place save that for the [TS]

  next episode lansdowne whole bottle you [TS]

  know how to draw him wait whip are we [TS]

  won't know how to wait for this computer [TS]

  and look like a Christopher no no [TS]

  computer to him we are we inside a [TS]

  program now include a number of times [TS]

  they'll be very distracting [TS]

  alright where's racket close bracket now [TS]

  its opening closing the same time it's [TS]

  self-contained soft buzzing war is it [TS]

  hey guys this top just keep spinning I [TS]

  exactly does that mean you just proved [TS]

  my mind [TS]

  John do you have some favorites how sure [TS]

  why not [TS]

  we are all right so i think my favorite [TS]

  episode was 194 real imaginary friend [TS]

  mostly because Kiki's Delivery Service [TS]

  is one of my most favorite movies and we [TS]

  talked about we talked around this movie [TS]

  we talked a lot about miyazaki for a [TS]

  long time but I was glad we got to do it [TS]

  i'm glad that we had Marilyn on he's [TS]

  such a frequent guest sorry like that [TS]

  one still thinking about that cat I like [TS]

  the doctor who episodes this season i [TS]

  also because i'm not on dr. whoever's [TS]

  house anymore [TS]

  ok lets me listen to them you know that [TS]

  I mean I'm not really a doctor who [TS]

  expert and for the most part i'm not as [TS]

  enthusiastic or is hateful towards [TS]

  doctor who is the people who are hung [TS]

  these up here huh so it's kind of nice [TS]

  to your people who are you have stronger [TS]

  feelings about Doctor Who than i do and [TS]

  i learned a lot and learned a lot about [TS]

  old doctor who from America and all the [TS]

  only people who watch those things and [TS]

  it's ok you can call me old too [TS]

  yeah I'm old tmobile people in yellow [TS]

  all doctor who still confuses me [TS]

  occasionally Allison's episode you [TS]

  almost inspiring maybe I should watch [TS]

  now and now not what I'm looking you [TS]

  know [TS]

  yeah but there are boring when I was [TS]

  eight years old don't like them now [TS]

  anyway i like better quality I'll just [TS]

  say that [TS]

  yeah and I'd don't like what's your name [TS]

  what's your name now Cara there we go [TS]

  that's the one yep good [TS]

  alright so i don't have to be in the [TS]

  episode that's my summary [TS]

  good job hot I i really like episode to [TS]

  weigh the good people are already dead [TS]

  where we talk about the last of us i'm [TS]

  amazed that somehow we got an episode in [TS]

  kind of a timely fashion about a kind of [TS]

  modern game that is actually like a real [TS]

  full-fledged Triple A game not something [TS]

  super short in indy even though Jason [TS]

  didn't really play it but i am thankful [TS]

  that he let us have the episode anyway [TS]

  he just watched cutscenes and [TS]

  I that was exciting for us giving 222 [TS]

  that was as i said on that podcast [TS]

  that's what i was looking forward to [TS]

  Thanksgiving vacation for I didn't care [TS]

  about thanksgiving only cared about the [TS]

  trailer [TS]

  I'm going to sit right down and and bang [TS]

  out an episode of immediately after it [TS]

  dries yes ridiculous interview retitled [TS]

  shot and fruit if giving yeah yeah and I [TS]

  had up until like I think yesterday's [TS]

  episode up until then well I closed it [TS]

  out of respect i still had the trailer [TS]

  open and the giant quicktime window [TS]

  behind all my other windows occasionally [TS]

  I would scrub through it just doesn't [TS]

  really good i still haven't watched it [TS]

  that's a trailer it's fine checking out [TS]

  and then at just looking at the year in [TS]

  summary we covered a lot of my favorite [TS]

  things is your guards cute toy story [TS]

  iron giant the stand wargames it was a a [TS]

  banner year for things that I've always [TS]

  wished the show would talk about now [TS]

  like all those episodes but i really [TS]

  like that were you know getting down to [TS]

  stuff that I like nothing I've never [TS]

  thought we would do I guess dark tower [TS]

  still out there there's plenty of other [TS]

  things but we're really hitting the [TS]

  highlights here and then finally episode [TS]

  200 at the portion where we were all [TS]

  sitting there together live in San [TS]

  Francisco [TS]

  normally that's our game of Thrones [TS]

  episode this is a break with tradition [TS]

  but it was you know it was nice to be [TS]

  together again and see people in person [TS]

  i really like doing those episodes even [TS]

  though it's a tiny sweaty little room [TS]

  that we sit in but we won't be in that [TS]

  room this year right so they will not [TS]

  sort of the end of things it was it was [TS]

  a fitting end [TS]

  yes it was just as well that we didn't [TS]

  talk about Game of Thrones will talk [TS]

  about broader issues but i always do [TS]

  enjoy those yeah well we couldn't talk [TS]

  about Game of Thrones because there's [TS]

  still one episode yet to air I told ya [TS]

  stupid HBO right that's great David what [TS]

  do you have oh man well I mean a lot of [TS]

  my favorites have already grown up you [TS]

  know the episode to episode is just fun [TS]

  to listen to and like I said the kids [TS]

  have made me listen to that more times [TS]

  than we've seen the prequels i love the [TS]

  game show episodes and the trivial [TS]

  pursuit episode i particularly liked [TS]

  Phil's increasing irrational anger and [TS]

  getting questions about Sky King [TS]

  rational about pills anger built those [TS]

  anger in general is a pleasure i love [TS]

  the old movie club episodes and the iron [TS]

  giant mean that's a that's a movie of [TS]

  love three years so it's nice to know [TS]

  that I i I've had the phrase [TS]

  super-creepy cg stuck in my head for [TS]

  models so thank you John [TS]

  Merlin's life story was a beautiful [TS]

  beautiful thing I've loved seeing how [TS]

  the network has grown and seeing all the [TS]

  new shows I mean filling Lisa ruin the [TS]

  movies is just delightful [TS]

  yeah the clip show last year which i [TS]

  listened to in my marathon session [TS]

  includes the statement the incomparable [TS]

  has a spin-off now [TS]

  yeah the door huh which was not playing [TS]

  would you know was technically sort of a [TS]

  spin-off we're gonna say i was just [TS]

  going off now we can't stop the [TS]

  spin-offs they just opened a speaker [TS]

  blasting out of control [TS]

  corporate energy and I was gonna say my [TS]

  you know from my own point of view one [TS]

  of the things I've enjoyed most this [TS]

  year is all the writing and preparing [TS]

  for a another spin-off whoo-hoo [TS]

  so yeah that's that's just been fun [TS]

  mapping that out and they can't wait to [TS]

  unleash that on the world forward [TS]

  promote new job [TS]

  thank you think I'm doing forward [TS]

  promote promote you actually tell people [TS]

  what it is you're talking about [TS]

  nope it's just easier and it's it's like [TS]

  that the Star Wars trailer doesn't [TS]

  really reveal anything are we gonna do a [TS]

  podcast just on David's teaser about [TS]

  nothing but yeah it's ready it's [TS]

  actually just like Zeke recursive clip [TS]

  lehigh like Aston always do 30 seconds [TS]

  every week but the idol exemplary that [TS]

  seconds longer every weekend don't do it [TS]

  possibly my favorite moment in the last [TS]

  I don't know couple months Steve [TS]

  pondering a naked Cloris Leachman now [TS]

  no you did it to me again ya got my [TS]

  camera is not a nice guy he's at the [TS]

  worst thing about the thinking about [TS]

  making [TS]

  assuming that films i have to think [TS]

  about the dude with the pliers who you [TS]

  see her you see her here feet kicking [TS]

  around and then the dude with the pliers [TS]

  and that's just not good old movie club [TS]

  everybody enjoy any club darkman yeah [TS]

  that wasn't we've taken a dark turn [TS]

  hey Erica up in Canada what would you [TS]

  have to finish it off since i mistakenly [TS]

  went to you first and second you get to [TS]

  finish this off good job symmetry [TS]

  um let's see well I I i have a little [TS]

  list here I quite enjoyed the console [TS]

  games draft six pixels or episode 177 [TS]

  and that was I was I still felt like I [TS]

  was kind of new to the podcast because [TS]

  that was way back in January and and you [TS]

  put out the call for people and and I [TS]

  did that thing that I so often did being [TS]

  a girl in the geek realm and I was like [TS]

  oh I don't I don't know that much about [TS]

  console games so I don't feel like I [TS]

  have anything to contribute so I wasn't [TS]

  on that podcast and then I listened to [TS]

  it and found myself really really [TS]

  wishing i had not accepted oh I had so [TS]

  many ideas that either you guys didn't [TS]

  pick or you guys were so wrong and I [TS]

  move time so so what you're saying is [TS]

  you can't believe we didn't pick your [TS]

  favorite thing I can i feel like i would [TS]

  have brought in very different [TS]

  perspectives that would have been [TS]

  amusing [TS]

  it's nothing to be good I don't know [TS]

  what the hell I was doing on that [TS]

  episode you would have made way ahead of [TS]

  me in terms of qualifications let me [TS]

  tell you that um I enjoyed all the book [TS]

  clubs this year specifically the stand [TS]

  episode that was one of my favorites is [TS]

  good one and also the old movie clubs I [TS]

  think maybe one of my favorites was [TS]

  another 1i wasn't on democracy is awful [TS]

  episode 1 part because i was supposed to [TS]

  be on it and then realized I was not [TS]

  going to either have the time or [TS]

  inclination to watch those awful films [TS]

  and I was justified in that after [TS]

  hearing that podcast was so glad i did [TS]

  not sit through those are not awful [TS]

  filled all right here's what you liked [TS]

  about them where the things that would [TS]

  have driven music [TS]

  so yeah I was I don't endorse those [TS]

  films so I felt like dodged a bullet [TS]

  there a red-white-and-blue bullet and [TS]

  someone to open up a window once Phil [TS]

  reframed Yankee Doodle Dandy is Georgian [TS]

  co hand-holding Roosevelt hostage to [TS]

  tell his life story but it's much more [TS]

  entertaining that way [TS]

  well if I'm ever held hostage and forced [TS]

  to watch it i will keep that in mind [TS]

  there you go that democracies awful is [TS]

  also the episode that I'm the coin to [TS]

  the other big term of the year in past [TS]

  years I've talked about how we quoin [TS]

  terms like mon store which is a monster [TS]

  who was your mentor this year we got we [TS]

  got both the butter zone in episode 210 [TS]

  episode 20 ones after dark bonus track [TS]

  whatever shame hole that was a real was [TS]

  a real one two punch didn't yesterday we [TS]

  didn't have waited butter zone potter [TS]

  popularized probably Mythbusters [TS]

  popularized it that's when they came [TS]

  also it's from the simpsons mo right [TS]

  yeah yeah doesn't matter but there's [TS]

  also been a lot of people have been [TS]

  singing someone open up a window [TS]

  yes at every opportunity all year it [TS]

  people you mean Steve Stevie it's only [TS]

  because nobody ever has done that [TS]

  besides but you know that's just do I [TS]

  think it's gonna catch on any minute now [TS]

  we give it up we can sit down John [TS]

  himself on John's we can do that [TS]

  sit down Glenn sit down plan we did some [TS]

  of that who met a fly it was out of that [TS]

  yeah I like that song speaking of out of [TS]

  the butter zone there dr. the next one [TS]

  on my list episode 200 which was it was [TS]

  just all kinds of fun I like the doctor [TS]

  who episodes but particularly episode 2 [TS]

  or 3 where we talked about kind of where [TS]

  to start in the world of Doctor Who and [TS]

  the the early knew who russell t davies [TS]

  Sarah that was really fun i always like [TS]

  talking about where to start so yeah I'm [TS]

  going to 10 also along the same 206 it's [TS]

  all BBC to me I like to mentioning the [TS]

  shows and tech can't believe you didn't [TS]

  mention more blind out the emitted light [TS]

  after we're going to like a hundred [TS]

  shows and that happens when we going but [TS]

  you forgot like do regarded [TS]

  anymore at least yeah you know I thought [TS]

  we I thought that the flag was just [TS]

  going to be because we couldn't remember [TS]

  the difference in BBC and ITV and and [TS]

  and etc but nope it was just you missed [TS]

  my favorite show how Dario well 198 a [TS]

  critical mass of Lady geeks that was [TS]

  really fun i don't i feel like i don't [TS]

  get to talk to fellow lady geeks as [TS]

  often as I would like and and that was a [TS]

  rather do male geeks [TS]

  yeah it's true i also enjoyed 192 [TS]

  murderous rumba the robots that was that [TS]

  was just a lot of fun because I actually [TS]

  picked a robot from a book I and step [TS]

  surprised myself and I think everybody [TS]

  else the same time i forgot to mention [TS]

  during my extended discussion of my own [TS]

  stuff that the canine and company or [TS]

  whatever his theme is amongst the [TS]

  favorite things I saw your oh yeah [TS]

  because of murders rubra yeah is is that [TS]

  not something it's amazing here this it [TS]

  is the most eighties thing ever [TS]

  and if you can put it on release it's [TS]

  like that too many cooks before too many [TS]

  cooks it yeah so insane haha you're [TS]

  walking 9 you are welcome to detain I'd [TS]

  get a canine it's gonna be in my head [TS]

  I'm like I to enjoy the Babylon 5 [TS]

  episode and I'm glad that you pledged to [TS]

  do it way back when i'm even gladder [TS]

  that you waited around until I showed up [TS]

  so i couldn't should be on it i was [TS]

  waiting until we're not panelists who [TS]

  had watched babble do an episode haha [TS]

  but now I see how I got uncomfortable [TS]

  now the trivial pursuit game was was [TS]

  very fun except for the part where i [TS]

  could not remember Bjorn Borg which I [TS]

  still think about to this day haha [TS]

  multiple want you to your death gotta [TS]

  have a rematch have great let's do it [TS]

  right now [TS]

  yeah right i'm in lb yellow a couple of [TS]

  their draft i really enjoyed with the [TS]

  board games and great i liked as well [TS]

  the contour not the console the computer [TS]

  games i just bought some games for my [TS]

  kids for [TS]

  for the holidays and for presence and I [TS]

  did I literally was standing in the game [TS]

  store with the show notes for the board [TS]

  game episode in my hand trying to find [TS]

  games that people had mentioned that i [TS]

  could buy so i think my favorite part of [TS]

  that was was just discovering that my [TS]

  idea of a favorite game is very very [TS]

  difficult to perform so you get hit by [TS]

  the way the fact that nobody besides [TS]

  you've apparently ever heard of careers [TS]

  is utterly bizarre to me okay good thank [TS]

  you i was a healing energy game when I [TS]

  told the whole anecdote about career to [TS]

  what I mentioned I heard her with you [TS]

  but I never heard someone got hurt your [TS]

  ears which is bizarre to me if anybody [TS]

  in the world is not heard of careers [TS]

  yeah everybody seemed completely taken [TS]

  aback by the whole uranium mining things [TS]

  so that is bizarre [TS]

  I did the whole bird watching track or [TS]

  something too isn't there i was just the [TS]

  1972 version that's the ecology track in [TS]

  the that's your seventies version yes i [TS]

  know my career's total party kill [TS]

  technically it doesn't count but i think [TS]

  that has been some of my most favorite [TS]

  memories and just giggle sessions have [TS]

  been brought on by by tpk now i like i [TS]

  like playing dumb and murderous it's fun [TS]

  ok yep but I think maybe my favorite [TS]

  thing was with another sort of outside [TS]

  the podcast thing I was supposed to be [TS]

  on the last of us episode and I tried [TS]

  playing that game and I ragequit pretty [TS]

  quick and ya could not make myself go [TS]

  back to it I think maybe my favorite [TS]

  part was just commiserating with Jason [TS]

  ok tell them I was filing out ya know so [TS]

  i can't bail out I bohost yummy find [TS]

  anyone here the content [TS]

  yes it was the difficulty for me was how [TS]

  boring it is it may have been a content [TS]

  if i would have played long enough what [TS]

  I don't know i don't think i got far [TS]

  enough to to get bored so yeah it was [TS]

  not for me [TS]

  we soldiered on that was that that's the [TS]

  episode where FF as i listened to it [TS]

  really is like I'm i'm also here and [TS]

  asking some questions and just not that [TS]

  interested in what people are saying [TS]

  and I actually that was really weird [TS]

  because I literally split into two [TS]

  episodes that are just they run [TS]

  back-to-back and it's like 12 hour long [TS]

  episode but it's really like stuff that [TS]

  i found interesting and then at the end [TS]

  all the stuff that i did not remotely [TS]

  find interesting too many other people [TS]

  care about and so it's there and it is [TS]

  an hour of you just going huh yeah [TS]

  alright yeah what do you think John tell [TS]

  us what you think about that [TS]

  uh-huh and did we do an episode on of [TS]

  Hugo nominations because i feel like we [TS]

  did we did see it [TS]

  yes and you said nice things about the [TS]

  about Mira grant I did yes I I enjoyed [TS]

  that one because i read so much more [TS]

  than i had for anything else for a long [TS]

  time and I i had done like almost all of [TS]

  my homework and I felt like it [TS]

  straight-a student for a change again [TS]

  that's nice Monty knows that episode [TS]

  because his name is in it the party [TS]

  partial Monty by the way is where you [TS]

  take a 20 that 20 book series the wheel [TS]

  of time that got nominated for a grammy [TS]

  award for best novel and Monty's idea [TS]

  was you read the first book in the last [TS]

  book and try to guess what happened in [TS]

  between there's more impartial Monty i [TS]

  still think that sounds like a good idea [TS]

  and like too much work [TS]

  yeah yeah yeahs a good idea is maybe [TS]

  just read the first page of the first [TS]

  book the last panel last challenge [TS]

  accepted [TS]

  yes need and that is that is that is my [TS]

  list that's your list mhm i liked our I [TS]

  debate about whether the I think this [TS]

  was basically John and Andy debating [TS]

  whether the whopper in war games had a [TS]

  moral code or not that was really [TS]

  amusing not as amusing as whether the [TS]

  cat actually talks I think and I were on [TS]

  the same side and some other wrong [TS]

  person was on the other side [TS]

  maybe you're right Greg nastya been on [TS]

  the other side yeah that wrong person [TS]

  yeah i think i liked our arguments about [TS]

  what constituted computers and robots [TS]

  what's good my way it dances are not [TS]

  robots just to be clear I I liked all [TS]

  the don't know what Jason is allowing [TS]

  these days is whatever the opposite of [TS]

  mad with power is that's what he [TS]

  wouldn't allow students will robots in [TS]

  his new yeah [TS]

  I know I know I wasn't the the [TS]

  adjudication of that episode was just [TS]

  disastrous it's sentient and it can move [TS]

  around on its own and its name is robot [TS]

  it's not a dance [TS]

  billboard I always felt that the changes [TS]

  everything [TS]

  whoa I feel Moreland by my ability to [TS]

  get showed and past the censors what I'm [TS]

  not gonna let you take the robot it was [TS]

  a moment of weakness I could pick the [TS]

  steep the robot i lived in the the TV [TS]

  pitch episode all the argument about [TS]

  what what a proper Rockford Files reboot [TS]

  would be yeah that's that 1i be in [TS]

  boston and it can't be in Seattle that [TS]

  was that was an episode that sat in the [TS]

  camphor for like two months so in fact [TS]

  so long that um while it was waiting to [TS]

  be posted James James Garner guide and i [TS]

  had to edit out our references to maybe [TS]

  James Garner could make an appearance in [TS]

  the reboot of the Rockford Files that's [TS]

  how long that episode sat on the shelf [TS]

  but you know what it was that was that [TS]

  was a wacky episode Skeletor died seven [TS]

  times during the last you know interval [TS]

  between last clip showing now [TS]

  yes it had seven times during that clip [TS]

  yes it had seven times during that clip [TS]

  so did I want to put a little shout-out [TS]

  to the to the bonus track that we that [TS]

  we did where we once again had beer and [TS]

  actually ate dinner in in escondido [TS]

  california the weekend of comic-con with [TS]

  a with a me and Steve and Greg moss and [TS]

  a bunch of listeners that was actually a [TS]

  lot of fun trying to do it an extended [TS]

  therapy session for correct like those [TS]

  episodes as sounds of the city [TS]

  that's what i think of those help people [TS]

  have glasses and silverware there are [TS]

  cars [TS]

  yeah yeah it's dead it's a bustling [TS]

  downtown escondido the most amazing [TS]

  moment perhaps the entire year though [TS]

  was while we were recording our little [TS]

  bonus outdoor beer garden thing for the [TS]

  butters episode yes and and that was [TS]

  that was me and Steve and David who was [TS]

  visiting San Diego when I flew down for [TS]

  the day and we went to the stone beer [TS]

  garden by the airport so they're always [TS]

  airplanes flying overhead and one [TS]

  listener came to to visit with us and [TS]

  that listener happened to be the [TS]

  listener who who wrote the letter about [TS]

  the butter zone [TS]

  yes and so so our listener it our [TS]

  listener got who mentioned the butter [TS]

  zone to us got to be in the episode that [TS]

  was about the butter zone personnel [TS]

  pretty explained listen nails own what [TS]

  was the episode that actually was in his [TS]

  butter zone i don't remember peak [TS]

  Clooney the incomparable film festival [TS]

  is it was in the butters is good [TS]

  knowledge just well you know Chloe I'm [TS]

  looking at the show notes page right [TS]

  right here [TS]

  eek Clooney not not to be confused peak [TS]

  create a pic with only the first peak [TS]

  episode i think maybe so it was after [TS]

  full Shatner but before peak quick peek [TS]

  great the point that you know what I [TS]

  realized [TS]

  listen radio it's going to be very [TS]

  little Pete's dragon it's great dragon [TS]

  eats every dragon krayt dragon come on [TS]

  Jason because I got it I got a job I got [TS]

  to her to start working fast like those [TS]

  cbs4 late like Peru right [TS]

  I don't think there was a single [TS]

  instance of each duel or otherwise this [TS]

  year and I think that's a real problem [TS]

  used to spend more time yelling adjacent [TS]

  was your friend letting me pick dances [TS]

  for robots were just not yelling at him [TS]

  anymore [TS]

  I i predicted 2015 there will be eating [TS]
