It’s been weeks since the last episode, a trend for what feels like an unending season. Barry and T’Challa blame LaToya and she takes the opportunity to express her recent struggles with her mental health. Plus, she has a new job and is getting her first mammogram. Barry talks about the recent loss of his mother and his interest in changing his name. T’Challa lurks in the background and tells us about where he’d like to live.
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 calls and awakens LaToya from her slumber to record the show early. He also shares a dirty secret of T’Challa. Do you have an opinion about the worst bands of all time? The hosts don’t agree with the number one pick. Plus, T’Challa tunes out when the conversation turns inexplicably to sex but gets everyone excited about a Kidz Bop (but not really) parody of the Cardi B hit, WAP.
It’s been 3 weeks since the last show. Barry blames it on what LaToya and her hubby were up to. T’Challa is non-enthusiastically back for an episode in which he finds out that he shares the same rare personality as his favorite person, LaToya. So what happened over the past three weeks? A lot of television-watching, yeh, that’s about it.
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.
