Acetone on a Bald Cap

We are late, but we exist! That means we cover TWO episodes of Project Runway, in which someone gets home that we wanted to go home, and someone goes home that we didn’t. But both were pretty much justified.Ink Master and the Great Food Truck Race both limped toward the ends of their seasons, so we talked about spin-off shows like the Great Food Truck Rally and Ink Master: Redemption. And Face Off: Game Face had another fun episode of monster and alien makeup.

A Greener Thor

Project Runway goes to the top of the Empire State Building, but it still can’t escape the Twins’ shouting. Ink Master does what it always does, but at least it involves sending home someone we’re sick of. The Great Food Truck Race has a bad business day in Nashville. And Face Off: Game Face has George! We love George!

Something With Pecans

Project Runway takes inspiration from a new dance movie, but also from pretty much every “fancy dancer meets a hip hop dancer” movie ever. Ink Master packs so many different rounds of challenges into one episode that there’s almost no room left over for people to be jerks to each other. Face Off Game Face continues to be almost too pleasant to talk about, except that we like seeing Rick Baker every week so we’re going to keep talking about it anyway. And the Great Food Truck Race did something with pecans.

Game Face Truck Race

Project Runway has an unconventional materials team challenge with the entirely conventional result of making one of the designers melt down. The Great Food Truck Race somehow walks the line of having the most flamboyant, theatrical contestants also be the ones who are most businesslike and no-nonsense. Face Off: Game Face brings back some old favorites who are also current favorites. And Ink Master has some actually good tattoos across the board. Good for them!

Klaus Nomi in a Space Bag

So many shows! Face Off reaches its season finale just as Game Face arrives to be the short-form version we both deserved and needed. And the Great Food Truck Race is back! It’s possible that you didn’t know it ever existed in the first place, but it did, and it’s a lot of fun for how shameless it is. Ink Master continues its season, and we’re obligated to keep pace even though Project Runway is only one episode in and already has a ton more memorable and identifiable people on it.

Welcome Project Runway

Face Off had the first part of its two-part finale, and we got to see what Glenn Hetrick thinks a haunted house should be like. Ink Master continued to do the same stuff it always does by bringing in a jerk no one enjoyed watching the first time. And Project Runway lurched out of the darkness with sixteen new designers to helpfully give us something else to watch, which was nice of it. So we’re watching the new season of that.

The Final (no, seriously) Rose

The Bachelorette is finally over, with a finale that somehow found a way to be extremely boring while also containing some actual emotion. But it was mostly the depressing kind of emotion,so that’s fine. Congratulations to Rachel for choosing between two nearly identical dudes. Monty and Rhias now plan to never touch that franchise again. Meanwhile, Ink Master featured pin-ups that weren’t entirely terrible, Face Off had aliens that claimed to be fun and friendly, and Forged in Fire once again led people down the dangerous path to canister Damascus.

The Men Bore All

On The Bachelorette, the men told all, but Monty and Rhias weren’t really listening. It was more fun to talk about bad tattoos on Ink Master, bad makeup on Face Off, and even bad knives on Forged in Fire.

Epaulettes?

It’s real hot in here, and Monty may have forgotten how to talk. But that’s not going to stop him from talking about the Bachelorette’s decisions. Which is good, because Rhias is already on the topic. They also cover Face Off, Forged in Fire, Ink Master, and the news about…a Face Off spinoff? A SpinFaceOff?!

The Monkey-Haired Christmas Tree Yeti

Every week means we’re a week closer to not having to watch the Bachelorette ever again. So that’s good news! There’s also Ink Masters to talk about, which had pretty good tattoos to go with its terrible people. That’s kind of the opposite of Face Off, which continues to have nice people even in kind of a down season. Forged in Fire finally let Doug Marcaida straight-up chop the heads off some ballistics-gel dummies. And Monty has some thoughts on Fool Us.

But the real news was this ear on Face Off:

That’s not where ears go!

Jelly Roll Technique

Monty and Rhias tackle the classic question: could the contestants on Ink Master ever actually be better than the ones on Face Off? The answer is no. Everyone on Ink Master is a jerk. There’s also Bachelorette, which has mostly trimmed its jerks but also doesn’t have much personality left. And Forged in Fire had people from the SCA that Rhias is pretty sure she’s met.
