It’s another season. Yes, we’ve made it to Season 13. If you’re looking forward to much of the same, the show does not disappoint. The hosts (plus T’Challa) return to discuss what has happened since their two-week break and T’Challa asks a question that LaToya is all too ready to answer while his dad must scramble for an appropriate answer.
T’Challa returns just in time for the final episode of the season. He learns that his father, Barry is slowly killing himself and tells LaToya that she’s a loser. Barry shares more on the joy of teaching and everyone talks about what their superpower would be. Could this episode mark the end of the series?
The hosts meander through another show. Neither prep and seem to flounder without the much-loved T’Challa. What is there to discuss? The usual. Both hosts have just finished watching season two of The Boys, the current season of The Vow, and have also cast their vote in advance of the November election. If you’re curious who they voted for, you’ve obviously never listened to the show.
Barry doesn’t want to do the show, so much so, his audio is terrible (sorry, fans). LaToya, also having a bad day, forces him to do the show because she hopes it improves his mood. As if. Shorter than the show’s typical runtime, they share what they’ve been up to, including insomnia, fatigue, television, and sprinkle in a bit about COVID-19 and Trump vs. Biden vs. Kanye.
Barry has a birds and bees conversation with a very shy and mortified T’Challa. LaToya points out how uncomfortable that convo is for us all. T’Challa keeps it 100 and tells LaToya that he’s bored by her, and Barry points out that her topics for discussion always seem to be steeped in depression. LaToya doesn’t give in to the peer pressure. She can only be her one true and authentic self. Plus, with 2020 being a problematic year, it’s hard for her to find joy.
Is it finally the end of Bigfoot erotica? Is Splash Mountain racist? Has Gone With the Wind returned to HBO Max? Should schools get rid of their resource officers? Is it shrimp or skrimp? Find out the answers to these questions with a healthy dose of Barry and LaToya’s antics. Plus, LaToya takes a break from television, and Barry dines in the hood.
For the first time in recent memory, the show featured two guests. It was the return of T’Challa and the welcoming of Draknara. With the added people in the studio, talk, of course, gets political. LaToya is not quite as PC as she should be, and Barry is insistent on her reading Bigfoot Porn. He even goes as far as saying that there is a scenario where he may also write some monster erotica. Plus, LaToya is excited about the show being downloaded over 1,000 times. Barry rains on her parade by reminding her of how many shows they’ve recorded.
Again, where’s LaToya? Still, on hiatus, Barry records the show without her. T’Challa’s back and he and Barry take over the show. Barry schools T’Challa on how licensing works, and they both share what they’re currently reading and watching on television. Barry is saddened that the fruit of his loins doesn’t know all of The Avengers, and they both debate the evolution of the movie theater.
Where’s LaToya? During their hiatus, Barry opts to do the show without her. T’Challa’s home and he and Barry take over the show. They both provide commentary as a student and a teacher on what it’s like to be sheltered at home during COVID-19. Microsoft Teams? Extra-Extra Credit? Technology Challenges? Zoom? Plus, Barry shares his detox after reading a Hitler-based book. Star Trek. Also, is Barry a liar?
Barry provides an update on the family emergency that caused the one-week hiatus of the show. And how could we not talk about the coronavirus?! It’s impossible to escape, just like Tiger King. If you haven’t seen the salacious series the hosts give you reasons why you need to stop everything and watch. We learn that the Class of 2020 is at a disadvantage and we rank our modern-day Doctor Who doctors.
