    Boys and Girls (2000)

    Came here to recommend this one. I put it on in the background when seeing it on HBO Max and knowing that I had watched it (along with a number of other Freddie Prinze Jr. romcoms of the 90's/2000's) in the past and wanted to refresh myself. I couldn't believe just how basic and simple it was. Positives are that the movie lets a lady be the typically jokey, sort of aloof character who doesn't really see what's in front of her for once. Also has a really cringe-filled soapy dance scene out at a club. Also Jason Biggs plays a guy just trying to get laid and the most effort he puts into it is lying a bunch and constantly dying the top of his head different colors. It's not even really "bad" it's just boring and completely predictable. At least do a mini-sode about this scene:

    Episode 553 - Let's Write On The White

    Really liked the episode. I agree that Stanfield seemed to get more into it as the show went on. It seemed like he took the "improv" part of it to the extreme by throwing curveballs at the other guests but I still enjoyed it for the most part.

    Comedy Bang! Bang! to end after 5 seasons on IFC

    Sad to see it go but glad it lasted as long as it did. Big fan of both the podcast and the TV show. So.....how long until Comedy Bang Bang: The Movie??

    Episode 431 - Ghost Pets Are Liars

    Was that serious? I had got into CBB well after iBrain and went back and heard it but always wondered if the "banning" was actually Scott, in real life, deciding to not have Brett on or if was just a joke because they had long periods of time between his appearances. The whole "we've had ups and downs" aspect of this show felt like it was a bit but I honestly don't know. Anyone have insight?

    Thank you for the update Shannon. It's much appreciated. I look forward to this being added.

    I also just realized that the Comedy Bang Bang episode #'s are different from the actual episodes. Like I was listening today and heard Scott talk about breaking off a new Hundo soon and I looked at the Howl App and saw it read "Episode 423" that I was listening to. So odd.

    HOWL Premium, HOWL Originals, HOWL.FM

    I've been a subscriber since it launched and have asked a couple of times what is going on with the ads that are still featured (many months after launching). I've been told it's being worked on and they were having some difficulties but at this point I'm starting to prepare myself for the announcement (or no announcement....it just happens) that they won't be offering the ad-free versions. It's taken this long to try and figure out and I'm sure there's a lot of technical stuff I just don't know but IMO it feels like it should be easy to just edit out the ads and put up that version on Howl. Either way....I don't have my hopes up too high. There's been very little in terms of updates and info. I really hope they figure it out. I love Earwolf and will continue to support.

    HOWL - NEW iOS App

    Thanks so much for the updates info! I'm more concerned with updates to the app itself, not just when new shows are being added. I like getting the e-mails about the new shows that are added. Hoping we get some of the other features that were discussed as soon as possible. I'd love to see the ads removed as promised but my #1 request is that the app will remember my spot on specific podcasts. When I turn off the app and open it the next day I usually have to try and locate my position again and if I didn't check the day before then it can be really annoying to scan through.

    HOWL - NEW iOS App

    Yea, probably an update. They had that included sometime during/shortly before November. It's great. There's really only two or three more changes that I'd like to see happen before I really love the app.

    Heynong Man! Any updates?

    HOWL - NEW iOS App

    Any update / info about when we can expect ads to be removed and the app can remember our spot in the podcasts?

    Can you Gift a HOWL subscription

    Maybe get them a pre-paid gift card and put $25 or $60 on it and wrap it with a card that points to Howl.FM or something. That right there is a 6-month or 12-month gift. Plus the person getting it doesn't have to worry about money coming out of their account. They'll just have to switch payment options at some point.

    EPISODE 387 — Most Multiple Personalities

    "To WHAT are you referring?" I also loved "nibble on your nippies" and the quick changes that Gemberling kept having. When Grant busted out the French and they found out Gemberline couldn't keep up I was dying.

    HOWL - NEW iOS App

    Not that I know of. I wish there was more discussion and status updates on here but it's kind of been dead lately. It's totally easy but definitely not obvious (and there's NO call to action for it that I could find) but when you're looking at the Downloaded Episodes section you just swipe the episode to the left and it gives you the option to delete. That was driving me nuts for a while as well. Yea, I'm still not entirely sure what the reason is behind this? Seems like it should be pretty easy to swap out the old and the newer ad-free ones but I'm sure there's technical junk that makes it difficult. It would be nice to get an update on this, though. That was a major selling point for me. I don't like trying to re-listen to old Affirmation Nation episodes (some of which are only 2 minutes long) and have to sit through a 30 second ad every time. For Android, at least, it allows me to pause/play on the lock screen now. THey pushed out that update at some point.

    I'm really looking forward to the Jemaine Clement show. Hope they start rolling out update info on stuff like that soon.

    I'm just hoping we get some updates soon in terms of lock screen controls, remembering my position on the show i'm listening to, and maybe an update where they remove the ads that are still present. Once those things are added I'll enjoy the app a lot more. As of now it's annoying to stop listening and then go back and try to locate my spot on the show again. Minor frustrations but still hoping to see some kind of progress soon. It's been a few months now....is there any timeline or eta on things? I am loving the content on the app.....just wish the app was a little bit better.

    Not really a big deal. I did say "kinda" lame which is way less lame than regular lame. One of the many reasons I signed up was definitely because of the promise of no ads on the episodes and it was frustrating to not see any explanation of timetable for what was going on. Let me be clear - I came here to post my questions for why there were ads (since you know...the whole thing is constantly advertised as not having ads so I didn't get what was happening). I asked the question in a few threads here and even tried digging around the Earwolf subreddit or reading it on the app but was coming up empty. It wasn't until I decided to test it out on the real Howl.fm site that I found out that they were having issues. I edited my post when I found that note so others like me would be aware of ths issue being worked on. Did I complain about one of the various issues the service has had since launching? Yes. Did I come here just to complain? Not exactly at first....it was more about finding out info. But then I found out about the issue and I lodged a complaint (while also trying to compliment this awesome content that Earwolf provides). Isn't that the point of the forums? To voice our opinions? I love Earwolf and haven't been as negative about this whole change in things as others have been so I'm sorry if my other posts seemed like I was making a big deal out of everything. I don't see why there's something wrong with asking for clarification and then voicing my opinion on the issue on the message board thread dedicated to the topic. I am looking forward to an improved app that has the features many have requested. So far the whole thing has been amazing (it does feel like a Netflix for audio comedy) but I was confused by something and then posted about it. Probably wasn't in that great of a mood at the time, as well. That's all

    Just checked again on an old episode of Comedy Bang Bang from 2012. First thing I hear is "Thiiiiiiis episode of Comedy Bang Bang was brought to you by audible...." Is there an ETA on when the ads will be removed? Isn't the point of paying $5 a month so we can listen to these ad-free? Does the iOs/apple version still have ads? Edit: Went to try this oowl.fm and saw this note: We are experiencing difficulty with the ad-free Earwolf/Wolfpop archives on Howl. For now, you can listen to the archives - with ads - for free in the iOS App, or on Earwolf.com or Wolfpop.com. As promised, ad-free archives are coming to Howl soon! When they do, they will be exclusive to Howl Premium.Head on over to: http://www.earwolf.c...medy-bang-bang/ to listen for free. Kinda lame. Glad it's being worked on but I'm thinking maybe they rushed things with this Howl business too fast. There's been a good amount of speed bumps that doesn't really inspire confidence. Hoping things get resolved fast as I love this network of content. Just wish things were working the way they were advertised

    EPISODE 377 — Good Night In The Morning

    I need more Scarsdale in my life. Right now. I love that at different times Paul and Lauren didn't want to continue with the gimmick but then would force the other one to do it. Paul's laughing was top notch as usual and the Arphan Black guests were totally game so this was a real C+ Episode for me.

    Why are there still ads on old episodes of Comedy Bang Bang and How did this get made? Will they be removed/replaced at some point? I am using the Android app.
  21. itrainmonkeys

    Will there be new seasons?

    Bumping an old thread to voice the opinion that another season would be glorious. I still consider the small amount of episodes that Daly and Gourley put together as some of the funniest podcasts created.

    EPISODE 205 — Flaming Mop and Tuxedo

    He really is great. I've only seen him live a handful of times doing a variety of show types but he's always stood out. His voice is unique and his ability to find the funny in a scene and really hammer home is great. One of the reasons it's obvious Matt likes having him on is because he seems to "get" where Matt is trying to go with a scene and he masterfully helps guide the journey that way. I remember he was kept on a bunch of shows when Matt was rotating people out during the Del Close marathon and it's clear why. I've enjoyed his work on here and with UCB. Love it whenever he's on. Would love to hear him on Comedy Bang Bang in some roles.

    HOWL - NEW iOS App

    I agree with all of these. Not remembering where I was when I stop/turn off is really lame. Also....what's up with the ads? I signed up for Howl Premium, downloaded the app, signed in, and when I tried to listen to very old (meaning definitely 6 months older) episodes of How Did This Get Made and Comedy Bang Bang the first things I hear are ads? Are those going to be replaced with the ad-free versions at some point?

    EPISODE 375 — Wompler's REAL 17th B-Day Womptacular

    Seth's throwaway lines are just so amazing. That one stood out to me but I also loved how right when Dabney comes back he launches into the Lupus question. Also really, really loved the last minute plug for his "Banana Cases" for people who may have experienced "purse banana" in their lifetime. So ridiculous.
