In this very special very special episode: Rob Hunter return to talk Hawaii Five-0 and Chin stupidity.
In this very special episode: As the TV seasons wind down for the year and the Idiots prepare for the summer seasons, it’s a slow time in the Magical Studio in the Sky. So in this spring slump, discussion turns to iPhone apps like “Draw Something” and other irrelevant topics. Still, the Idiots manage to squeak out a little TV news and reviews, and again they burn more time talking about Kevin Smith and the like. With both yawning and exhausted from all the TV they’re not watching, the Idiots wrap things up with a light segment with DVDs and a Recommendation for more 80s TV goodness.
In this very special episode: The Idiot Boxers are back for a fun-filled episode of cynicism, swearing and really offensive rants about celebrity worship and the death of Whitney Houston (and they apologize in advance for what is said in the show). They also talk about the latest TV news and get down with some reviews, including a scathing analysis of Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Men. But since Merrill had such a great week, there’s few things Kevin can say to bring him down. Poor kid. Later, they sound-off about Netflix viewership, then offer some DVD suggestions and Idiot Recommendation. It’s been a long couple weeks between episodes, but the Idiots make sure to not disappoint with their unique analysis of the idiocy happening in the world of entertainment. As Whitney Cummings circa 1998 would say, it’s their jam!
In this very special episode: The Idiots ring in the new year by pushing through the January slump. They share their holiday stories – from Merrill’s very traditional Jewish-Japanese sushi sandwich to Kevin’s undying love for roast pork and sour kraut. Kevin gets called out on his RottenTomatoes reviews while Merrill reports on his anthropological studies of Long Island high school girls coordinating the pumping of overpriced gas. Later, the Idiots talk TV news (which seems heavily weighted towards An American Horror Story) and later chat about what they watched. Then it’s on to DVD suggestions and Idiot Recommendations before signing off for another two weeks.
In this very special episode: The Idiots are recovering from Thanksgiving and Black Friday, crawling back into the depths of the living while watching as many TV shows as they can (well, as many as Merrill can while Kevin tries to fit in as many as possible between award films). They chat about how their holiday season has been going, including why Merrill shouldn’t be allowed on the freeway and how Kevin hands out Turkey Day advice about embracing your fetishes. They roll through some scant movie news before chatting about the shows they’re watching, sound off about a few things that annoy them and give some DVD suggestions and an idiot recommendation.
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 dance around the Magical Studio in the Sky to celebrate the first episode of Season Two, ringing in their one-year anniversary of the show. Kevin celebrates by eating a donut, while Merrill celebrates by letting Kevin derail the show at least three times in the first segment. The Idiots talk about what rocked and what sucked on television these past two weeks, go over some TV news with some detailed analysis of Charlie Sheen, then they give some Idiot Recommendations and get generally offensive.
In this very special episode: Kevin is grouchy because he’s fasting for his “old dude” doctor’s appointment in the morning. Merrill is furiously making Valentine’s Day plans with a pint of cookie dough ice cream and a stack of Michael Bay DVDs. While the Idiots try to talk about what sucked and what rocked over the last couple weeks in television, Kevin works his special brand of podcast terrorism by derailing Merrill at every curve. If only Denzel Washington and Chris Pine were there to stop him. Finally, the Idiots give their DVD picks and recommendations before slinking quietly into the corner for another two weeks.
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 Idiots start off the show by chewing the fat to cover up the fact that there really wasn’t that much to watch these past few weeks. But they manage to talk about the things that rocked and the things that sucked. In particular, they take aim at some of the modern sci-fi and superhero television shows available on the dial. The Idiots also lay down some TV news, including what’s on the bubble, why Glee can have Justin Bieber and whether the Kennedys can take down basic cable television. Finally, they end with some DVD picks, recommendations and why Merrill is infuriated by sunglasses.
In this very special episode: With the first episode of 2011, the Idiot Boxers ring in the new year by talking about the best and worst of 2010. After reviewing the scant number of new shows over the past two weeks, they talk about what rocked and what sucked in the past year. Then, the Idiots moved on to sound-off, DVD picks and a couple recommendations. Happy 2011, folks!
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: You know how last episode was supposed to be the most offensive episode yet? Well, you haven’t heard this episode. Be the judge afterwards. The Idiots get off to a slow start, but soon fatigue and irritation at political correctness cause Kevin to start swearing and daring to say evern worse words. (Again… sorry, Dawn from California.) After the basic discussion of what rocked and what sucked, Merrill’s ass falls off his body, and he smacks his head into the desk. They also sound off about South Park and election advertising before the Idiot Recommendations, which may or may not include a variety show version of the SuperFriends.
