Episode #094 – What The Format?!

Much like a timelord who recently celebrated his 50th anniversary facing his moment of regeneration, change is inevitable. That’s why for a number of reasons which are explained in this episode, we are altering the format of “Bad Rapport”, making each episode shorter by cutting the number of our talking segments in half, but keeping the same amount of comedy music. We’re going to make a specific effort to have our talk segments be concentrated discussions of what we’re up to, as well as the media reviews we have been lacking lately, recording them away from home so we’ll have no toddler-ruptions. We hope that the result will be a much more entertaining, interesting, hopefully occasionally funny, but at the very least much more tolerable show for you to listen to every 2 weeks.

In this episode, we recap what we’ve been up to since mid-October, we review Plants Vs. Zombies 2, SNL, and Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., and read your comments from Episode #92. We also have comedy music by Whitney Avalon & Jonathan Hurley, 2D6, Howard Wolowitz (performed by Simon Helberg, written by Garfunkel & Oates), The Buckwheat Boyz, Insane Clown Posse, ShiSho, Rob Paravonian, Kill The Band, and Schaffer The Darklord.

I hope you all like new format. Please leave us comments letting us know what you think of it here, or by calling 916-LUKE-SKI, which we’ll respond to in 2 episodes, because that’s the way we do it now.

Episode length: 1:32:05

  1. First of all, give me immortality or give me death! I find around 90 minutes a good length of the podcast.

  2. I agree very much about Agents of SHIELD. Ward and Skye are by far my least favorite characters and they really need to stop just being the muscle guy and the hacker girl. I think we’re seeing steps in that direction, but they need to speed it up; the days when a show could get a couple of seasons to hit it’s stride (remember how awful TNG’s first season was once we had the benfit of hindsight?). Frankly, I was about to give up on the show until episode 6 came along, which was brilliant. Ironically, a show about secret agents and a world of superheroes managed to win me over with a scene that was just tow guy talking. The scene in that episode where Coulson was talking to the firefighter was so well written and acted I admit that I actually got a little misty eyed.

  3. Thanks for explaining your format change. Even I understand the desire of significant others wanting to spend time with you. The shorter length episodes will make it easier to comment.

    I have been surprised by the negative comments made by many toward S.H.I.E.L.D. especially when it was written for a full season as was stated. Hopefully those negative views will be changed by the end of the season.

    Since financial obligations prevented me from going to the G&O and the P&S shows, thanks for filling me in on what I missed.
