One time, I was watching some (decent) movie, and some asshole in the front kept laughing way too hard, or during scenes that had no jokes. I was really mad at his behavior until it was over, and as we all funneled into the exit, I discovered it was a mentally disabled young man just legitimately having fun.
He was still an asshole for it, though. Great episode, Bobcat was a great guest and Garry Marshall blanking was fantastic

Also love the way PFT works conversational errors right into the character. Such a pro.

Garry does the commentary on it, but rather than talk about anything actually happening onscreen, goes off on tangents such as his idea for a romcom featuring Pol Pot, and how to commit the perfect murder. It's brilliant.
The actual DVD is good too.

He mentioned that in this episode and as much as I like Scott, I couldn't help but feel like he sounded like the hip-hop artists who are always talking about the "haters." True, sometimes one may have some unjustified haters who may be hating out of jealousy. But all too often, an artist will put out something that deserves to be criticized and when the reviews aren't in the artist's favor, they cry "haters" or "they're just jealous," when the reality is, people just didn't like the art.
I've never felt that Scott operates in that fashion (but maybe he does) so I would like to hear him speak further on the subject so I can get a better idea of where he's coming from.

And I don't think it was on CBB that he talked about it. Some other podcast?

On the other hand, could PFT take a break and come back when he has a new character?

An episode of Keith and The Girl from back in 2006. Bob's memory is right that the interview went off the rails but it's wrong that the reason for that was that KATG opened by bringing up Mohr. In truth Mohr didn't come up until about two thirds of the way through a fifteen odd minute chat and it was just the kind of personal question KATG always bring up, and one reason why their chats have always been more entertaining than your average interview (kind of like WTF). The real reason that interview went off the rails was Bob being confused by KATG's New York/Israeli aggressiveness and confusing it for them being mad at him.
The thing about the recent tweet was just a case of Bob being accidentally caught in ball-busting crossfire between Keith and a couple of other New York comics (you know how them New Yorkers love to bust balls). I don't think Bob is even on twitter and he certainly wasn't @ed, so it was just unfortunate he came across it Googling himself.
