The Villain Edit: what people traditionally blame when they discover that their time on a reality show was spent being a huge jerk on camera. Also a podcast in which Monty Ashley and Rhias Hall talk about the reality shows they’ve been watching lately.

(Don’t Tell Me) What Not To Wear

Some cool swords were made on Forged in Fire. Well, the swords looked kind of clumsy, but they were made by cool people. And sometimes that’s enough. RuPaul’s Drag Race had the most shocking lip-sync ever! For real this time! And The Bachelorette unleashed a new crowd of dopes, tickle monsters, and aspiring drummers onto the world’s stage.

Beware the Black Palm

We’re back from Disneyland, and we’re excited to talk about reality shows. And also Disneyland. We cover the last two weeks of Forged in Fire (swords!) and RuPaul’s Drag Race (gowns!) and check in with Naked and Afraid XL (many, many injuries!).

Irish New Year

There’s so much to talk about! Two RuPaul’s Drag Races, two Forged in Fires, a Cosplay Melee, and the Face Off finale! Exclamation points!

Drag Queens and Gargoyle Monsters

RuPaul’s Drag Race took morning shows and made them even more crass and unprofessional. Except now it’s on purpose, so it’s okay. Face Off reached the semi-finals with four great competitors and made them make gargoyles. Cosplay Melee did superheroes and revealed the secret feud between fabric and foam. And Forged in Fire chopped another pig in half. Do you think they have a barbecue when they’re done?

You Know, an Antler Chop

Forged in Fire is back, with two new episodes of people either making cool weapons or accidentally ruining them. Cosplay Melee enters the world of video games, some of which Monty’s played. Face Off takes a trip to the islands for a Dole Whip. RuPaul’s Drag Race has pretty, pretty princesses. And Monty takes time out to lecture Gordon Ramsay about what he’s doing wrong.

Dressing Up Like Tom Hanks

Cosplay Melee had a challenge themed to Angels and Demons, and the ideas were interpreted in a variety of interesting ways. Face Off did an alien senate, although we don’t remember a lot of subcommittees being discussed. RuPaul’s Drag Race brought back an old favorite and said a goodbye that was equal parts sad and inevitable. We also talked briefly about this season’s gimmick on The Amazing Race.

Googly Eyes Are Essential

Cosplay Melee went straight to our heart as the person we were rooting for actually won! RuPaul’s Drag Race is just starting its season, so we don’t know if that’s happening yet. We had to make do with Lady Gaga being an amazing guest judge, and two of our three preseason favorites being in the top three. Masterchef Junior continued with the pie-in-the-face-level shenanigans, and Face Off featured two covens of witches. Be warned that this episode features more discussion of googly eyes than you may be used to.

Cosplay Melee

The winds of change are blowing, and they are bringing new shows. Monty and Rhias are very excited about Cosplay Melee, a show where people carve craft foam into armor. And about the upcoming season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, of course. But first they have to work through the finale of the Bachelor and the latest episodes of Face Off, My Big Fat Fabulous Life, and Masterchef Junior. Although they can’t really remember anything about that last one. Some kids cooked some food, maybe?

Reunion Shows Are Awful

The Bachelor limped toward its finale with three hours of programming, in which Bachelor Nick was featured as little as possible. Because what everyone really wants is lots more of Corinne, right? Riiiight? My Big Fat Fabulous Life continued to prepare for the big dance battle, even though no one seems that into the idea. Face Off had an animated puppet challenge that was fairly non-creepy as animated puppet challenges go. And Masterchef Junior turned into Hell’s Kitchen Junior for a week, which annoyed Monty.

Stranded With a Million Jerks

There’s this new show called Stranded With a Million Dollars, and we watched it. And hated it! We also cover The Bachelor (which went to Finland), Face Off (which went to Fury Road), My Big Fat Fabulous Life (which went to kiss-town), Masterchef Junior (which went to Monty’s last nerve with all the screaming), and checked in again with Hunted (which went to its season finale and will probably never come back).

Masterchef Junior Has The Rice Stuff

The new show on the docket is Masterchef Junior, replacing Hunted, which was too boring to live. We also watched Tattoo Girls, but that’s not sticking around in our household. The Bachelor went to Hometowns and finally moved the focus off Nick. Face Off had Mad Scientists, but why were they all dudes? On My Big Fat Fabulous Life, it looks like someone’s about to get served. The Curse of Oak Island had a two-hour season finale spectacular in which some twisted metal was actually recovered. So that was something.
