    Episode 455 - The Washington Monugents Reunite

    Agreed about the weird structure, but it was nice, just a surprise. I was also surprised that the tensions didn't boil over with the Monugents, seemed hinted at early on in their appearance. Would've like to hear those guys back for plugs though. Speaking of, plugs theme was cool. Reminded me of Stabbing Westward a little, but I understood how Scott characterized it too, maybe he was more accurate about the inspiration. Rhea was delightful. I enjoyed her reactions to "both candidates are equal" insinuations.

    Where have all the games gone?

    The only game I really care about is Would You Rather? and I was glad it made a return recently but it needs to come back more often than that! Although I think I do like another game with a long musical intro but I don't know which one it is... EDIT: Its "What Am I Thinking" I can live with or without Riddle Me This or Fortunately, Unfortunately.

    Episode 262 - Lydia Loveless and the Mortgage Muse

    God damn this was a great episode. Loved the tunes, and its one of those episodes where all the improv scenes are hits. I think the Public Enemy one was my favorite of the bunch. Trying to spread the Lydia Loveless gospel on Facebook now, "Midwestern Guys" was a standout.
  5. Hahahha yes I am in the same boat. I only knew him as Leo, and I think I kinda recognized him from some other gigs, but now have a great fondness for the Burger Boy. Monster Squad represent!
  6. MOLASSES GHOST! Yess! EDIT: No Messmore!? WTF!

    Episode 453 - Unblocked and Unlocked

    Pemberton killed as Dicker Troy. I loved that character. TP Stain was enjoyable too, sort of an on the nose and juvenile joke but its delivered so well. And I was super excited about the return of Would You Rather?, but I thought the question itself was a bit disappointing (mostly the first half of it).

    Episode 451 - Wishing with The Grawlix

    Nothing puts a smile on my face like Scott dropping a little "Trump that bitch" in there.

    Episode 450 - Throw It On the Floor

    Hahah yes I came here to point out that moment too. I wish Scott had made some sort of passive aggressive mention of Rocky's passing when Kyle said that.

    Episode 447 - These Are the Worst

    you didnt say anything in this thread so I assume you are atoning to past mistakes I will cop to being a little bit of an asshole myself but I do think its silly to have some unwritten forum rule about NO negative feedback. I DO get why this thread turned into a dumpster fire though, I think that was warranted haha.

    Episode 447 - These Are the Worst

    Well isn't this sort of the dillemma of being sort of a celebrity? Like googling yourself or whatever is probably going to uncover something unsavory or nasty said by some nobody. I get what you're saying, maybe the CBB Reddit or something is a little more appropriate for negativity (lol) but I think that sort of feedback is going to be found somewhere if you're looking for it, especially online. Plus it happens (that someone visits the forum) but I couldn't for sure say with how much regularity. Its nothing personal. And it seems a bit far removed from going up to them and saying something insulting. I'm addressing my comedy consuming peers here, not the performer directly. To me its more like talking about the comedian with friends after the show, and maybe we're a little too close to earshot range. But yeah, maybe this venue specifically is too close to home. I appreciate the insight. This is just the only place I engage with people about the podcast..

    Episode 447 - These Are the Worst

    Can I agree to a degree? I think there should be room to offer your opinion on a guest that isn't just roses and sunshine. Generally when I talk on the forum, its heaping praise on an episode or guest. But is that all we're supposed to be here for, is adulation? Can we not offer some differing opinions on the comedy? There's a line we shouldn't cross, obviously. Remarks on appearance, keeping it civil in general, etc. I personally don't like how anytime someone is critical or says something a little negative it seems to be taken to extremes (sexist, racist, whatever). I'm not really defending what happened in this thread, but the ability to say things that aren't just positive.Sounds a little circle-jerky if you're only allowed to be nice nice all the time. Like, today, this was an episode where the character didn't work for me. I don't think it means Kate is unfunny herself, but nothing about it really struck me as funny. The character felt like it was not really adding anything. Scott is usually pretty good at making lemonade out of these situations, but a character without a sense of humor doesn't strike me as particularly funny. And if you're going to play at anti-comedy or whatever, it feels like the character should be more interesting. But for me it was a bit dull and felt like it sapped the energy a bit. I loved the two guests (that one really DID sound like Sarah Silverman), they brought more laughs to the table (for me, anyways). Bone Queef felt.. problematic at first, when I wasn't sure if it was a white comedian or what haha. And its a bit one note of a character, but I don't think we spent much time exploring that character (which is why maybe it came off one-note), but the one-note WORKED for me. But then we spent the majority of the episode with this OTHER character. I dunno. I know its negative, and maybe its unconstructive, but I feel like there should be some room for that sort of disagreement. Without being shitty to each other. *shrug*
