Great cast in this one. Lauren killed it. Lots of great callbacks, you guys were really in tune.

I wasn't there, but I want to throw my "woos" behind Doctor Who as well. Star Wars & Star Trek, I love too (at least The Next Generation), but after The Doctor got rebooted in 2004 or whatever, that's just been stupid good, you guys. David Tennant & Matt Smith are great actors, as well as several of those companions. Karen Gillan? C'mon! Being able to cover so many genres - comedic, horror, straight sci-fi, etc. Is also a strength there. And some of those monsters are just so cool. The Blind Angels? The Cybermen? Love that show!

My Woo goes to the Doctor :)

Maybe your boy was confused because, for the older generations, Doctor Who means that cheap show on PBS that starred that Willy Wonka-looking chap in the colorful scarf, Matt.

Oh and also, with Star Wars, it's not just 6 movies, but it's 5 seasons of the Clone Wars cartoon and BY FAR the most - and best - video game library, as well as tons & tons of comics. I mean, you wanna get nerdy, let's get nerdy ;)

Every Lauren Lapkus podast appearance is better than the last. She's easily one of my favorite Earwolf regulars and I imagine she's an awesome person too....

Hey Matt if you ever need tickets to an Arkansas vs. Auburn game in Auburn I can probably hook that up for you. They would be good seats and Auburn fans generally aren't shitty like A&M peoples. Also they would be free and you wouldn't be obligated to hang out.

Plus the hogs always seem to find some way to beat AU at home....

Ian Roberts is too fucking funny, especially when his characters get angry.

All of these scenes were fucking amazing. Joe, Lauren, and Ian brought their A-game.

Wengert killed me with "oh, I'm not a mutant, I'm just the guy that makes the costumes"

I also need to mention that Best Worst Movie just depressed the shit out of me when I saw it. It's like everbody involved in Troll 2 is either completely insane or hiding who they are (clearly in the closet dad from the movie).

FYI, Besser, there were Full House books. There was a series of Michelle books and a series of Stephanie books.

I wonder if there's a debate among Full House fans whether the books are considered canon or not. Do people vouch for the Expanded Full House Universe?

This one has a couple segments that should end up on the next Best Of, Matt! I could not stop laughing at not just the Aggie story, but the ensuing urine women skit. The shitting robot - excuse me, defecating robot was brilliant. The exterminator for the VHS tapes? The guy who won the lottery? The tapes of the guy's brother dying from cancer? So much gold! And so many smart callbacks -- I died when I heard, "What are your skills!?" "Blumpkin". lol.

This team was great, and the show was amazing. I4H - BEST. PODCAST. IN THE UNIVERSE!

Oh by the way, this episode is fucking awesome from top to bottom. Forgot to mention that because I was hung up on the Full House mythos. "Urine Woman" was my favorite.
