Burpy Burpy Burp

Monty is trying to come up with a theme song. It doesn’t go well.

Hunted is on the bubble, as neither Monty nor Rhias can remember more than one thing that happened this week. More time is given to The Bachelor, which seems to be going off the rails in a way that the production staff probably didn’t intend. On The Curse of Oak Island, the discussion centers on wood and rocks. As usual. And Face Off turns into a magical winter wonderland.

Drag Race Season 9 Preview

The contestants for season 9 of RuPaul’s Drag Race have been announced, and we did our research! Which means that we watched a bunch of performance videos, so now we’re experts. We might not know who’s going to win, but we know who our favorites are. We go through all the queens and explain their strengths and weaknesses in preparation for the new season. We also cover recent events on The Bachelor, Forged in Fire, Curse of Oak Island, Hunted, Face Off, and My Big Fat Fabulous Life.

“Hunted”

We check in on the Bachelor, which is growing on us. Well, one of us. And then we dive into Hunted (in which normal citizens pretend to be hiding from cops) and Face Off (in which talented artists create cool monster makeup) before a brief update on My Big Fat Fabulous Life.

“Mythbusters: The Search”

After a very brief recap of “Curse of Oak Island,” we talk about how no one told us how crazy “The Bachelor” was. Then we dive into “Mythbusters: The Search,” which claims to be a search for new Mythbusters hosts, but is actually a terrible waste of time.

“Forged in Fire”

Introducing The Villain Edit! We talk about reality show taxonomy, including why the two basic kinds of competitive reality show are basically “Survivor” and “Cupcake Wars.” Then we dive into a discussion of Forged in Fire, which is absolutely the best blacksmithing show on television.
