AVSEPod Episode 82: Land of the Lost - Elsewhen


This week, Ryan & Austin are joined by two Very Special guests, the hosts of the Star Wars Minute podcast, Alex Robinson & Pete the Retailer. Together, the four discuss an episode set a long time ago, in a land far, far away...the Land of the Lost! Join them as they tackle this Very Special episode about growing up/meeting your future self in a cave beset by lizard-like Sleestaks, discuss the proper way to climb down a rope into a seemingly-bottomless hole, and try to make sense of the time travel of it all.

This week, we are once more boldly going where no one has gone before (except for us, in an earlier episode...) to discuss Star Trek The Next Generation's "Force of Nature". Join David as he assembles an Away Team consisting of himself, Ryan & Carolyn as they discuss this Very Special episode which attempts to warn us about the dangers of technological advancement on the environment, and also, the dangers of...cat training.

AVSEPod Episode 79: Scorch - You Gaslight Up My Life


This week, we continue "One Season Wonders" with the third (final!) episode of Scorch, a TV show which answers the question nobody asked, "what if Alf, but with a dragon puppet and without the normal rhythms of a sitcom?" Join the Aluminum Four as we discuss the curious late 80s/ early 90s trend of puppet-based sitcoms, try to wrap our heads around the premise of the show which suggests a local ventriloquist would rocket to the top of the media power rankings, and tackle the deeply philosophical question, "if a sitcom doesn't have any jokes, is it still a comedy?".

AVSEPod Episode 78: Cop Rock - Pilot


"One Season Wonders" dances on, as the Aluminum Four tackle one of the more infamous one season shows of all time, Cop Rock, the series which dared to ask "what if a cop show, but also, a musical?", and apparently answered with "sure, but also, the cop show is really crappy." Join Ryan, Carolyn, Austin & David as they talk (and occasionally sing) about the show's awkward politics, ponder who, exactly, is buying babies off the street (and if the answer is just bad, or the worst thing ever) and make so much fun of Randy Newman.

AVSEPod Episode 77: The Pitts - Pilot


It's time for our annual summer theme marathon, in which we spend the summer reviewing episodes fitting a certain theme picked by you, the listeners! This year, we're looking at "One Season Wonders", episodes of shows that only lasted one season. And we're kicking it off with The Pitts, a Fox sitcom from the early 00s so bad it redefined "bad TV" for a young Dr. Bitz. Join David, Carolyn & Austin as they pore over the surprisingly-deep IMDB credits of this cast, introduce Carolyn to the Midwestern wonder of crop art, and try to decide if this show is really as bad as the reputation David has given it.

AVSEPod Episode 76: Step by Step - Back to School


This week, we return to TGIF and the 90s Brady Brunch to check in with the Step by Step gang, in an episode where perennial dum-dum JT learns all his problems in school might not be caused by being a dum-dum, Frank & Carol try to pass a snooty inspection, and White Urkel & his girlfriend try to suppress their throbbing biological urges. Join Ryan, Austin & David as they talk privilege and the college application process, the extreme horny-ness of TV's Patrick Duffy, and, of course, the Codemeister.
