    Episode 394 - On A Shuckers Schedule

    They should throw caution to the wind and perform all themes live, didn't they amass a cornucopia of beats, trills and jingles over the years? If Off Book can do it, etc. And while the show's going strong, I dare call upon plucking the TV Chart out of obscurity, since a. more common ground's likely to be had, and b. more people watch that shit now.

    Episode 384 - New Heights in Terrible Enunciation

    I know, this line-up is too good to be true and Natasha is a godsend, long may her maternity leave continue. It's great that the Kulap era ended amicably, but it doesn't mean humanity's need for Who Charted diminished one bit. Jon's song really did win both charts, and great to hear Cyrus is still on top of the game. As for the dearth of comments, it's probably just reddit's forum-draining ability. I always thought Who Charted lends itself well to a facebook group, just need one enterprising chartist to step it up.
  3. One sing-a-long is an event on its own, let alone 3, that scale of podcasting is plain scary, sick ep.
  4. Another great episode, loved Mark doing an awful impression of an impression and the whole vibrating micropenis and Hades subplots. No surprise there, she's done plenty of Earwolf & UCB improv, has lots of friends there, Paul Welsh is in her show, etc. And the dog thing's probably inspired by the recent news of Barbara Streisand legitimately having her departed dog cloned twice.

    Kulap is leaving the show

    When you change the players it'll be a different show either way, but there's no reason not to believe this could mean a great second wind for the show, as evidenced by the usually awesome WC? female guest hosts. It was inevitable something like this would happen, so for it not to end feels like a bonus. Plus she would have never gone without leaving it in safe hands.

    Kulap is leaving the show

    What a sucker punch, I'm curious as to why, and who'll replace her. Alternated between the old and new eps last year, and while it's changed, it hasn't lost any of the charm and humor. Have to be glad Howard is keeping it afloat. Seeing how she's proven, Ele Woods would be my replacement guess, as well as my vote. End of an era, but there's always the archives which probably 2% ever finished.
  7. You're splitting hairs, the list seems harsh and hasty, and that's just his persona, take it or leave it - you can't change him. It's natural for his character to change over time, and I think he pulls off the self-defeatist and contentious attitude, it suits him and adds to the unpredictability. Maybe it's the fact that it's the closest thing (chemistry wise) to the now defunct Ronna and Beverly, but I anticipate this podcast more each week. If I had one criticism though, it's that every so often, like here, the guests are in two minds over the accent they adopt, so they go for neither realism, nor absurdness, thus losing the parody aspect that's usually so delicious.
  8. Laughed the most out of all eps this year, the Pokemon scene took the cake, and the headshot one second into the Isis audition... Wow, the grainy football video I submitted tanked so bad, it made it to the title (kinda). There was only really humor in it if you account for the guy being one of the most recognized English managers acting out of character.
  9. Thought K Flay (whom as usual I'd never heard of) came off as well as any musical guests, not just the performance, but the openness and looseness of the interview part. Re: Razlax479, I don't know if anyone who wants that version would be willing to dish out for what is just a cropping out, when it takes little to no effort to cut the tracks yourself, unless you're looking for audio fidelity, I guess. The only other outcome for the listener would be to improve the standard of guest through the money incentive and potential boost, but it's already quite a rarefied level of guests, plus the exclusivity adds to the fun, like being 'in' on something rare. That said, seeing the quality of content, you got my vote for it.
  10. You judge it on the whole, though, and it was an entertaining ep up to the very clear delimitation, which might have been too well produced for its own good. But in all, great chemistry and loved seeing Moynihan tackle the I4H formula, feels like a master returning to his roots.
  11. That Oscars part stole the show, not just funny, but quite a relief to hear Putin and Pete's put-downs, and you just know those were their true feelings too.

    Episode 325 - The Comaterium

    They all were at the top of their game, I felt, barnburner of an ep. Fave line - "You thrown a snowball at me, I will give you that finger." Cool to hear Besser take a fellow co-host's live advice to heart (again) and changing his side project name to Professor Besser.

    Episode 369 - Curse of Taste

    Great episode, unshackled Besser is the best kind, two hours felt like 30 mins, and the custom charts were a nice touch, they should be a fixture. Glad Guy Richie's Arthur got a mention, very solid film, and since no one included these, here's my top 5: 5. Orient Express; 4. Arthur; 3. Disaster Artist; 2. Kingsman II; 1. Baby Driver.
  14. Sweet ep, both guests came off as pros, loved the rapport and enthusiasm, and pretty damn educational, despite having forgotten every term already.
  15. I loved it, and I'm really enjoying the changes in format. No such thing as too much insanity, plus those guys can do no wrong anyway.

    Episode 314 - The Zone Between

    Way to look at the glass half-empty, your clips were the only ones getting any joy! But anyway, real strong line-up, liking the rotation lately, and some great sketches.

    Episode 360 - Yacht Kaboom

    Scott was is good form, the Jay Leno impression especially came out of nowhere and seriously needs its own podcast. I've never seen a quality drop-off as steep as Walking Dead S7, but the candle's been re-lit by that little anecdote at the end here.
  18. Not one bad scene in here, though you'd expect no less from these guys. And some pretty mental callbacks later on, all-in-all, my fave I3H for a while. And it's silly, but turns out Gabrus was right all along, it's per-uh-nee-um. PS: Picture on the front page is all wrong.
  19. Lost it at the eye-poke, she's a great fit for the show - and by the looks of it, she'd have no trouble playing the role for real.

    Episode 358 - Gum Chewin' Band

    Love this combo, though after all these podcasts, he's still Kenny Powers' nemesis to me. Halt and Catch Fire's first 2 seasons came in so very handy during an internet-less spell recently, but S3E1 actually made me lose interest . Also, the name is of a weird early technique of closing the CPU while the computer's still on, but they never bring it up on the show...

    Episode 357 - Whip It Out

    So sad when Mandell mentioned S4 is the funniest, reminded me of an article I read that Reno would have gone on if they had their way, and it would have gotten better and better (which, considering S6's the best, I fully get behind). Shame Garant and Lennon stopped featuring in B$P, not that the show is short on characters. Anyway, hope they don't back down on the Unger thing, he'd be an awesome guest (too)!
  22. One of my top 3 WSGs this year, along with the Throwing Shade and Ronna&Bev ones, though they all were sweet - can't believe I was skeptical of the premise of the show, well it's because it is likely the most challenging hosting role on this network.
  23. Impressed by Besser's Angels TM, and fine well-rounded episode. Just happened upon a piece of history from the early Sklarbro days, Matt, Danielle and Kremer were standing in, and during the very last plugs, this: https://vocaroo.com/...nd=download_mp3
  24. Is there more than the 'long in the works' option? But yeah, very promising experiment, a scripted musical is a first for Earwolf/Howl, to my knowledge. Unfortunately, the 2-hour I4H today means I'm too spoiled to listen any sooner than when all 3 eps are up.
  25. Good stuff, Lou's been growing on me lately. It's not great likeness, but this is how I've always pictured the hosts:
