In this very special very special episode: Fozzie returns to the magical studio in the sky to talk abs, curses and wolves.
In this very special episode: The Idiots recover from April Fools by not winning the lottery and continuing to watch the small amount of interesting television that is still out there. They take an opportunity to answer a listener email then move along to television news. After some reviewing of shows, they each give out some recommendations and sound-offs. Oh, and there’s a bit of an autotuning going on, which will make the show all that more awesome.
In this very special episode: It’s November sweeps, and the Idiots are damn tired of watching television. Merrill overdosed on pretty much every program he follows while Kevin mistakenly swept all the rooms in his house. The Idiots chat about disasters in The Cheesecake Factory and the new Twilight movie. Then they launch into plenty of TV news before running down the shows. After a meaty segment about the good shows on TV, they head into the Sound-Off segment and the DVD recommendations. Then they quickly race out of the Magical Studio in the Sky so they can get ready for Turkey Day coming up this week.
In this very special episode: In what just might be the most offensive episode of the show yet, Merrill and Kevin cut loose some shows off their DVR line-up. They complain about all things Whitney and fawn over New Girl a little more. Plus, they talk about all the hot new shows coming over the airwaves. They also talk about what makes Merrill’s ass so delicious and why Kevin is obsessed with horror movies. After rattling through a slate of TV news, they also take a look at some DVDs and Idiot Recommendations. And be sure to stick around for the post-credit sequence, where the Idiots really attempt to alienate some listeners.
In this very special episode: It’s premiere week, so the Idiots were busy watching hours and hours of television. It’s a tough life, but someone has to do it. But before they give the rundown on the new and returning shows, they talk about Facebook, Netflix Twi-hards, Nikki Finke and a burned dog butt. Then they move on to television news before giving feedback on the good (like New Girl), the bad (like Whitney) and the ugly (like Charlie’s Angels). Then they move on to the Sound Offs, DVD suggestions and the Idiot Recommendations before sailing off into the sunset. And a big thanks to Coby Bell from Burn Notice for giving us a lead-in this week.
In this very special episode: Well, the Idiots were not taken in the Rapture, so they’re still here watching television. And it’s a good thing too because this was when many of the finales happened and all the renewal/cancellation news hit. So the Idiots talk about what they thought rocked and what they thought sucked, then move on to TV news. There’s also a special guest in the final segment before the Idiots break out some sound-offs and DVD recommendations. But don’t worry… there’s plenty of other goodies in this show, including an iTunes review all the way across the pond from the UK, some discussion about body function and why Merrill just needs a hug.
In this very special episode: The Idiots start off talking not about television, but about music videos, as Merrill tries to understand Kevin’s unnatural obsession with Rebecca Black’s “Friday.” Eventually, they get on track to talk about what rocked before moving on to an uncharacteristically cogent discussion about television news. No worries, because Merrill miraculously derails himself in the “What Sucked” segment by over-ranting about V. Eventually, the Idiots wrap things up with DVD reviews and recommendations.
In this very special episode: Just because Kevin is recovering from a bad case of strep throat doesn’t mean he can’t be an Idiot. Together with Merrill, they talk about all things orange, bacterial infections, what constitutes pornography on television and all there was that sucked and rocked on the boob tube these past few weeks. Merrill sounds off about awkward TV theme song transitions, and Kevin looks back a the UK version of The Office. Then it’s a batch of TV-on-DVD and Idiot Recommendations before the Idiots crawl away in shame for yet another couple weeks.
In this very special episode: The world sheds a collective tear of sadness as we wrap up 2010 with the last episode of The Idiot Boxers until 2011 (which is just two weeks away, so it’s really not worth crying over). Kevin and Merrill run down some of the end-of-the-year finales and give their approval of various shows. Kevin tries to derail the show by hitting on Merrill’s cousin by proxy and describe creative uses of cream cheese. Merrill tries to keep things on task, but soon buckles to exhaustion. Then they talk about some TV news and hand out some family-friendly recommendations (which ends a rather family-unfriendly show). Sorry, Dawn from California.
In this very special episode: The Idiots are facing holiday fatigue and the burdens of November Sweeps. Kevin faces the challenges by refusing to catch up on his stories, while Merrill pushes ahead and tries to watch everything on television. The first big casualty of the season is the loss of a “Sound Off”-only segment, which was absorbed into the final segment like so much turkey in Kevin’s belly. They have a smack-down over Conan, and later Merrill reveals too much about his excitement for The Golden Girls complete series package. Yikes!
In this very special episode: The Idiot Boxers come back from an exhausting premiere week to talk about the shows that continue to keep their interest. In an attempt to appeal more to the ladies of the audience, Kevin invites a special guest into the Magical Studio in the Sky – Ellen (aka @TheLawyerChick on Twitter), who is a big fan of Kate Walsh and Private Practice. In an effort of diplomacy, Merrill is left out of that discussion. The Idiot Boxers sound off about online advertising and movie/TV talent cross-overs before laying down their DVD picks.
In this very special episode: Hey, hey! It’s premiere week at the Magical Studio in the Sky, and the Idiot Boxers have been furiously at work catching up on all the new television shows. They crank out the longest first segment in the history of the show, which we will refer to as $#i! That Merrill Likes. Have no fear, they drop the infamous Sound Off segment to keep things brief and also get into a couple fights about new shows and old. Oh, and a surprising amount of love for the CW shows this week. Go figure.
In this very special episode: The Idiot Boxers get set for the summer season, wrapping up a couple spring finales and looking ahead to the June premieres. Kevin exposes the debauchery of Merrill’s Formspring.me account while Merrill learns a valuable lesson about UV radiation. They look at some of the big TV news before Merrill gets too intimate with the cast of Flashpoint. Out of utter embarrassment, Kevin insists they move on to the Sound Off segment to talk about the evolution of summer and how Comedy Central is being a giant douche before laying down some TV-on-DVD picks and handing out some Idiot Recommendations.
In this very special episode: The Idiot Boxers give their take on various season finales and prepare for others, in particular the LOST finale, which wasn’t aired at the time of recording. They also bitch about V at least three times in the show. They cover TV schedules for the fall, then Sound-Off about campaigns to save shows and homages to musicals before moving on to some TV-on-DVD and giving their Idiot Recommendations.
In this very special episode: The Idiot Boxers dance a jig and talk about how awesome some of the shows are looking for may sweeps, like 24, FlashForward and Lost. They also bemoan the success of the wretchedly dreadful V before rattling off some TV renewal news. During the Sound-Off, Merrill and Kevin look at shows in trouble and the evolution of The Office before reviewing some TV-on-DVD and handing out some Idiot Recommendations.
