If the night sky looks a little empty to you tonight, it's because all the stars are here, in this episode of My Brother, My Brother and Me. Because the Oscars happened! The cinema! All of the acting, and also the directing. Glamour!
Suggested talking points: Our Skewed View on the 2017 Oscars, Unstoppable, Rip Messwell, Dogs Are Dogs, Guy Another Day, Benedict Cumberbatch's Home for Sharp-Faced Boys, Improv Literally Everywhere
Taako makes some fashionable friends. Merle does some wordplay. Magnus remembers.
WHAT A GOOD EPISODE OF THE BACHELOR!!! We were very excited to talk about the good, good families that these women have, and how Nick is going to systematically disappoint them as we reach this season's final stretch. Join us, won't you?
Things have changed. Like, we wanted to stay "Podcast Humble" for as long as possible, but when you're fielding as many A-List phone convos as we have over the past few days, it's tough to stay true to your roots.
Suggested talking points: Phone Calls With Celebs, My Hairy Friend, Game Jail, Clean Plate Club, Noodleboy, Hot Cereal, Busting a Nut
It's Go-Homes week on the Bachelor as Nick narrows down the roster to this season's Final Four. Which, of course, means this episode was kind of lame -- BUT -- we got a big surprise announcement in the form of confirmation of the next Bachelorette! Join us as we just freak the hell out about it.
We know that Valentine's Day can be rough for some folks, so in this episode, we take the whole idea of the holiday to task. Like, when they hear our incisive rips in this episode, they might just cancel the whole dang holiday this year.
Suggested talking points: Taco Bell Dragnet, One Good Fall, Great Valentine's Day Jokes, Self-Spoilers, Plane Movies, Birds vs. Humanity
Our heroes are forced to square off against their deadliest former foes -- but their real challenge comes in the form of a danger the likes of which they've never experienced. Taako gets primal. Merle gets disconnected. Magnus gets a couple of helping hands.
We don't know where to even begin talking about this episode. It was seriously the most bizarre two hours of programming this franchise has ever put together, complete with inscrutable plot twists and 180-degree tonal shifts that changed the course of the season with virtually no explanation. It's a wild, wild ride, and we're gonna guide you through it.
How about that Super Bowl, and all the things that happened during it? You know a lot of people are calling it the Super Bowl, but -- heh -- we're not sure it was that "Super." Anyways, those are the jokes we're doing this week, hope you like 'em.
Suggested talking points: A Super Bowl Christmas, Michael Jorban, Figginsworth, The Mole: Sexual Bonanza Edition, Two Horses, Lemon Flash Mob, The Final Piece is Teamwork
There's dark clouds on the horizon, but we're not focused on those -- instead, we're keeping our eyes on the delightful moments of yesterday's episode of The Bachelor. Namely, when a bunch of women were INSPIRITED BY A SPECTRAL CHILD.
