Birthdays. Christmas. Television. Oh my! It’s a new year and the hosts are excited to share their 2021 memories, some more pleasant than others. It’s another farewell to Voldemort, an almost sexless year, and yes, we’re just talking about LaToya. As a whole, the hosts are doing well and watching a lot of television and reading. They meander a little into politics and Omicron and let’s not forget Bigfoot porn.
The dream team is back together at last. T’Challa joins the show only to learn that it’s now only a monthly occurrence. The team believes that this recording schedule will make them all more committed to the show, especially for the reluctant LaToya. As always Barry tells us about what he’s watching and he also shares his Spotify year-end statistics. T’Challa shares his and LaToya remains committed to her iTunes library. And while they may be old enough to be their parents, Barry and LaToya share some of their secret celebrity crushes.
T’Challa has returned but he’s busy working on a project to pay too much attention to the show. Barry and LaToya discuss what they’ve been watching. LaToya went to see her favorite sports team play and Barry is sad to see this semester go by so quickly. And on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 the hosts reflect on life before and after the tragedy.
After an almost two-month respite, the hosts are back. The only thing missing, the true star of the show, T’Challa. While he’s away at DragonCon, Barry and LaToya recount what has happened in the time away from the show. Reading. Writing. No arithmetic. And as usual, there is a lot of television watching and a Netflix series that both hosts agree that you must see!
Today’s show miraculously happened! Barry is enjoying his summer break by writing two books while LaToya is still acclimating to her new 9-5 job. T’Challa is relaxing and sleeping in for the summer. LaToya admitted to thinking of Barry while she was in the shower. Barry ranks the best Batman actors of all time. Plus, LaToya accepts life without sex and finally contemplates what it means to be of African descent.
Yes, we’re still in Season 13, one that may apparently take all of 2021 to complete. With no show last week and LaToya being increasingly unavailable to record at the set time, it is a surprise that they’ve eked out an episode. Despite there being a great deal to discuss, you know, death and despair, the hosts opt on the side of it being a lighter show. Find out Barry, LaToya, and T’Challa’s favorite books and some of their thoughts on Disney+ and the Marvel Universe.
Barry is excited to record the show. LaToya and T’Challa are not. However, with moments to spare LaToya preps her topics for what would turn out to be the longest show to date. There is no taboo topic as the hosts talk about Barry’s net worth, soccer, Hollywood scandal, pink diamonds, and more. If you’ve forgotten who Barry’s least favorite celebrity is, he is more than willing to remind you. T’Challa again doesn’t have his question ready for his fan-favorite segment.
In what is likely the last episode of 2020, the hosts do some minor reflecting on the year. Talk turns to Christmas and a “one and done” modern classic children’s film that LaToya will never watch again. She and T’Challa finally agree on something as they argue with Barry over what constitutes rap music. Barry and T’Challa celebrate Christmas early, and Barry is thrilled with his gifts from LaToya.
LaToya has slept for less than 3 hours and it shows as she rambles her way through the episode. It is of no consequence to Barry or T’Challa as they are mostly prepped and ready for the show. Who would have thought that there would be so much upcoming streaming content amid the pandemic? And say it isn’t so, AMC may be no more? Plus, Barry still owes LaToya a wall tree and he also can’t live with himself now that perfect attendance is out of reach for this school year.
It’s another week where the hosts fail to record on show day. Saturday is the new Thursday. Both hosts have had a rough week and there is no T’Challa to keep them from their doom and gloom. Barry attends a football game and listens to new music while LaToya gives her feedback on WAP and an early Christmas. Plus, LaToya manages to unintentionally talk Barry out of paying for and watching the new live-action version of Mulan.
