Before anyone asks, this episode was recorded on December 10, three days before Alan Thicke died, which explains why it was not remarked upon.

Also, the Christmas surprise is amazing beyond all comprehension.

If Calvin Redding could make the list for the live episodes, then Donny Gary had better be one of the top two.

I just updated the forum config as a test. You should be able to paste the URL between [​soundcloud] tags, e.g.:

Poor Gilly. Did she get either of her potential husbands before they passed? Part of me really wants them to do an episode about the incredible coincidence of all of this and another part of me wants to cry myself to sleep at night until this entire year is forgotten.

How about the crazy discussion that occurred right after that segment? About death, Harris and how people have been 'on the show' and then passed? I'm not a 'higher power' guy, but man...to have had that talk right after an Alan Thicke bit is just so crazy.

Big reveal from Scott about his auditioning!
Are you telling me, we could have had this version of iRobot with Scott Aukerman and Hollywood passed?! Tsk! Tsk!

That IS a good song!

Seriously, I loved the shit out of "Please don't joke about 'I, Robot' this Christmas." Amazing job, Paul, Scott, and Eban!

Alan Thicke's "Oh dear" as soon as the Cosby voice came out.

Not that crazy. Remember the episode was also a Garry Marshall appearance.

Did hearing about Scott being an actual performer who auditions for things make anyone else doubletake? No insult meant, I just never really think of him in that context. And also, I'm still not completely sure he wasn't joking.

It definitely seemed like it was, but then Scott did mention something about that segment being timely at the time, but not now, which I guess was in reference to their joke about someone being a possible running mate for Trump?

"Please Don't Joke..." was amazing, possibly replacing the CDR all-stars' "Do They Know It's Christmas?" as my favorite comedy Christmas song.

"Please Don't Joke About I, Robot This Christmas" is the absolute best, although next year, I'm hoping they'll write a song called "Is Dick Francis a Horse?"
