I am a little too enthusiastic about pop culture, Netflix, mix tapes, Our Host Chris Harrison, and holiday-themed Oreos. I also believe that it’s important to tell your story—even the ones that make you seem a little crazy. Oh, and please do not send me your grandmother's famous green bean casserole…

The good news is that I recruited Lara to join us to help Todd sift through the dark and twisty shows since I don't enjoy watching people get killed for no reason. Additionally, Lara helps me talk about Season 2 of Cheer after we puzzle through why showrunners just announced another two seasons of Emily in Paris. Spoiler: His name is Gabriel.

    Hello everyone, Sadly, I missed last week's introduction into Clay-en's season due to a little virus known as COVID wrecking havoc on my immune system. I've been writing about this silly show for nearly twenty years, and the idea of missing an inaugural post of a brand new season just wouldn't do. Insisting I quarantine from my roommate Lara, I watched the glory of Clayton's season unfold on an iPad in my germ-infested room upstairs. I knew absolutely nothing leading up to that moment. Traditionally, Some Guy in Austin and I record a podcast detailing our top-tier picks of the season. Unfortunately, the aches in my bones and my eyelids' insistence on remaining droopy eighty percent of the day hindered me from adequately preparing for the great event. Instead of spending the week learning names and stalking Instagram accounts, I developed genuine feelings for my trusty bottle of NyQuil and a love/hate relationship with the act of swallowing. In other words, I went into this episode blind. And it was glorious. Some Guy in Austin and I discuss all the important things you need to know, like: Which icebreaker got the job done?Will Salley return in a future episode (yes)Was Claire bored? Drunk? Or both?Who are the frontrunners vying for Clay-en's heart?And should I continue to watch the show each week hopped up on NyQuil? I'm kidding. Or am I? EPISODE NOTES: Here's the recap for episode 1.

    Well, at the beginning of this bachelorette episode, showrunners made sure Michelle beat it into our brains that next week is hometowns. If the tradition of the previous seventeen seasons remains, quick math results in the astounding conclusion that four men will be standing at the end of this two-hour extravaganza, and four losers will be sitting silently in the rejection SUV, wondering where they went wrong. Some Guy in Austin and I break it down for you. We answer serious questions, such as:  Does a person's ability to churn butter make him a likely husband candidate?Would you wear your girlfriend's father's swim trunks if you were promised a make out session in a hot tub?How do you impress a gaggle of fifth-graders? Some Guy thinks the answer to that question is sugar. I think the answer to that question is jokes. Then things really go off the rails and we laugh for way too long.

    I want to start this episode off with an apology. I was attacked by the crud last week, which kept insisting I lay horizontal no matter how I insisted that things needed to get done. In the end, it was the podcast that suffered the host's wrath that took up residence in my body. For that, I apologize. I rarely miss an episode, and I appreciate those who reached out to ensure I was not in a ditch somewhere. Fortunately, my voice came back a few days ago, and I rallied with Some Guy in Austin so we could nitpick Michelle's roster to see who exactly is here for the right reasons. In my opinion, it's only Granny Smith Rodney, but I'll give these other jokers a shot at winning Michelle's heart. And how might one do that? Well, for starters, you don't act like a junior high boy and ignore her at the church lock-in slumber party. Some Guy thinks the producers told the men to ignore Michelle and play with teddy bears and popcorn machines instead. I have a different theory. Boys are stupid.

Then, using ABC biographies and Instagram accounts alone, we sifted through the roster, looking for individuals we thought had what it takes to make Michelle happy. Some of our choices were spot on.

The contestants talked about Thomas, participated in a group date, talked about Thomas again, waited around for a rose ceremony, and talked about Thomas some more.  That is why Some Guy in Austin veered way off topic more than once during the show. But, in our defense, I do think you will find our conversation enlightening. Along with general bachelor-related questions, we ponder over real questions that keep us up at night. Such as: Can we make Buzz Killington trend on Twitter?When is the last time you shopped inside a Best Buy?Where might one procure elephant testicles at a moment's notice?Who wins in a fight?

    Listen, I’m so glad Some Guy in Austin picked 16 Candles as his favorite movie as we finish up the Love Story Series. How I’ve managed to record nineteen of these episodes without mentioning this John Hughes classic is a mystery.  Just listen to this FUN synopsis: With the occasion all but overshadowed by her sister's upcoming wedding, angst-ridden Samantha faces her 16th birthday with typical adolescent dread. Samantha pines for studly older boy Jake Ryan but worries that her chastity will be a turnoff for the popular senior. Meanwhile, Samantha must constantly rebuff the affections of nerdy Ted, the only boy in the school, unfortunately, who seems to be interested in her. 16 Candles taught us many lessons. We all have devastating stories from high school, most families are dysfunctional at some level, and even though the nerdy kid has endeared himself to you, never give him your underwear. But the biggest lesson is that it IS POSSIBLE for two grown people to sit on top of a glass dining room table without it breaking.  Call me, Jake. I’d like to re-enact that moment at your earliest convenience.  EPISODE NOTES: HERE is a link to the 16 Candles movie trailer.

    I’m pretty excited about this episode because it’s all about The Big Dance. Am I talking about March Madness? The NCAA Basketball tournament? Well, no, but my roommate Lara and I are discussing how dance has been woven through the tapestry of our lives.  Is Centerstage one of the top dance movies of all time? Is Centerstage one of the best dance movies of all time? (hint: yes)If you had to choose between So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing with the Stars, could you do it?And if you had to choose one dance song that would be your theme song for life, what would it be? I don’t care what Lara says. The Wobble is NOT an option.

    Hey y’all! To say that Bachelor Matt James’ season finale was the most dramatic is an understatement. Although most of you probably knew the controversy that swirled around Rachael, one of his final two picks, I can report that many other moments had me wagging my finger at the screen, sucking in my breath in shock, and shaking my head in disbelief.  I will guess that most of you listening already know the glaring revelations from After the Final Rose. There’s no need for me to break down every little detail, commenting on the episode’s ins and outs, yet Some Guy in Austin and I do just that.  And look, I get that you’re listening right now because you really want to if Emmanuel Acho is as great as everyone is claiming him to be.  That answer, by the way, is yes.  Yes, Emmanuel Acho is a fine man who enjoys riveting conversation and the snug fit of a jaunty plaid suit.  EPISODE NOTES: Here’s Matt James' season finale recap. And here's a link to Emmanuel Acho's website.
