    Episode 265 — LIVE from RIOT LA

    While a polished character is just fine, hearing PFT work out a new premise, and repeatedly surprising himself with spontaneous backstory is awesome. Lapkus was great solo and transitioned beautifully to a foil once PFT came in. You could feel the chemistry building throughout the episode, peaking in WYR. Great episode. Even Harris' foam was pleasingly terrible.

    Episode 80 — Jack Frost: LIVE!

    The best collection of second opinions of all time. You could make a dour German art film from any one of them.

    Episode 80 — Jack Frost: LIVE!

    Dan Harmon fits this show perfectly. His outrage and sarcasm duel with Jason was amazing and his reaction to the first second opinion tied a nice bow on the absurdity. Zouks with the shameful self outing of X-men lore. Though I think it was Cassandra Nova that wiped out Genosha with Sentinels. And now I have outed myself.

    No new episode this week? 01/08/14

    How dare he let human frailty interfere with my Wed podcast ritual. A true professional would have sent a hobo with a crib sheet into the studio in his place.

    Episode 263 — Hollywild

    He saved me from a comic nerd stroke, had it not been acknowledged.

    Episode 263 — Hollywild

    Strong, Strong start to the New Year. Sans and Schwartz have great straight man/character chemistry.
  7. While I love Tony, part of me wants his one perfect appearance to remain unsullied.

    Episode BO2013.4 — Best of 2013 Pt 4

    The orgy breaking into a racist tea ceremony, and Manzoukas dissolving into laughter....goddamn. About 90 second of communal character genius.

    Episode BO2013.4 — Best of 2013 Pt 4

    My favorite line of any episode ever. The video clip when Andy is losing before he even gets it out, and the room breaking into a frenzy afterwards, could be used to wake me from a coma. I've listened to the whole episode a dozen times and it holds up beautifully. And while Daly is at the absolute height of his brilliance Zouks served as a perfect improv foil in all of the episodes that they did together. How can something so dark and bleak be this absurdly charming? I would have placed it #1, but given how amazing the top 2 were I can't raise too much of fuss.

    Episode BO2013.3 — Best of 2013 Pt 3

    There is no order that top three that could shake down in that would upset me. Those are three of my top five all time episodes. Should any of the three be omitted I will make very verbose and specific threats about never listening again....and then slink back in quietly a week or two later.

    Episode 56 — After Party Brawl

    Sir Richard has become a prime Steve Austin style wrestling face. I am loving this new arc and the vibe of current party...don't die guys.

    Episode BO2013.1 — Best of 2013 Pt 1

    I hear it so rarely I forget how wildly entertaining PFT is as just PFT. Just a hour of him and Scott riffing would be gold.

    Episode 262 — 2013 Holiday Spectacular

    And Scott jumping the gun on Jason hedging around the sort of lists that Merril Schindler makes, destroying the whole room, was a borderline Christmas miracle.

    Episode 262 — 2013 Holiday Spectacular

    This one started a bit off but picked up once Dalton got there. I love PFT's work, I find him consistently brilliant with tremendous range, but the Alan Thicke character leaves me a bit cold. Maybe actually being Canadian makes some of the accent and culture stuff read a bit flat. I still enjoy PFT in any form, and once Thicke was used as a straight man to flush out the other characters Paul's wit and improv ability shone through, but Alan Thicke is the only character of his that feels thin and a bit lifeless to me. Still, the man crushed "The ghost of Richard Harrow" out of the park, so I have faith he'll find the hook eventually.

    Episode 262 — 2013 Holiday Spectacular

    That lineup is so amazing I find it difficult to press play. It's like some hording instinct is kicking in demanding I squirrel it away for a time of great need.

    Episode 54 — Wolf Whisper

    I think I'm going to buy the Trade of deadpool and Gerry's nova book out of shear gratitude for the drunken adventures of Sir Richard and Damien.

    I feel I've come home after years of wandering the wild. I love this comment section.. Strongbad for life, son. *pounds chest to indicate respect*.

    Episode 261 — Nubile Agape

    Shelby was great on the podcast, no one is calling for torches, just a bit of professional courtesy. ps. Horatio's off topic WYR questions cemented this appearance as an all time best.

    Is anyone else liking Damien more than Amarth?

    Amarth let Brian sit back and be pure Id, which while fun, didn't force him to stretch much. Damien makes him actually scheme and roleplay in a proactive way that spices up the group dynamic.

    Episode 261 — Nubile Agape

    The Nerd poker guys (and girl) are my favorite human beings that I don't know in real life. Attacking them without warrant will always bring out a protective instinct, and possibly a slanderous warsong from Patton Oswalt.

    Episode 261 — Nubile Agape

    While I realize you can never get a full sense of a person from the podcast medium, every time I hear Kulap on anything I think "What a lovely human being". From her pre concert concern on Anlyze Fish, Her appearance on HDTGM, and assorted stray episodes round 'bouts she consistently comes across as the nicest person in the room. I feel like that sort of thing should get some shine. Good god, why does Aaron Nevile's easy betrayal of Earth make me laugh so hard.

    Episode 260 — Tiny Cheeseburger Story

    As soon as I heard Small's characters my Venture Bros circuits fired up. I didn't know he did so many voices on that show...he was in bonus territory from that point on. He absolutely killed it. That was a Kroll, Adomioan level multi character throw down. Surprisingly great chemistry between everyone. Good old swifty "I used to be pretty, look at me now"

    Episode 260 — Tiny Cheeseburger Story

    Gabrus is really effortless and natural. You have to pay attention to get the clever asides, but man is it worthwhile.

    Wait, whuuuuuuuuuut?!?

    I can't even process this. I just got so excited I started slapping my own face for no reason. It's like that first hit of heroin and childhood christmas eve rolled into one.

    Episode 53 — Parn's Village

    I completely missed that gold.
