In this very special episode: The Idiots get set to make a very special announcement, but you’ll have to wait for the end of the episode for this. Before the announcement is made, the Idiots talk about crazy boutique shops in Long Island, being fat and 40 at an amusement park, pillow-and-blanket forts and why Kevin’s kids like it when daddy drinks. Then, they move on to TV news with some insights into new shows in development. In the third segment, the Idiots review the shows of the last two weeks and weigh in (a little late) on whether it’d be funny or not if Daniel Tosh were raped right now. Finally, the Idiots lay down some DVD suggestions and a charming Idiot Recommendation. Then there’s that announcement at the end. (Spoiler: Kevin’s not pregnant.)
In this very special episode: Before the Idiots take off to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah and eventually the New Year, they squeeze one last show into 2011. They talk about their holiday plans and the toils of potty training. Then, they get serious for a moment to talk about the problems with SOPA. After this, it’s into the news segment to talk about the latest stories about television. After rattling through the shows that they found most interesting these past two weeks, Merrill offers a sound-off about a possible groundbreaking distribution model from Louis CK. Finally, it’s the DVD picks and then a final farewell to the television of 2011.
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: Apparently Mother Nature is not a fan of The Idiot Boxers because she sent Hurricane Irene up the east coast to knock out Merrill’s power for an entire week. Mere hours after power was restored, the Idiots were back online and talking about TV… well, after a half hour of recounting Hurricane Irene stories flavored with the spicy, hot bitterness of Starbucks. Then, Kevin chimed in with a grand story of an $11,500 burrito. Eventually, the Idiots moved on to what sucked and what rocked, along with TV news and a couple sound-offs, which includes a scathing review of Hulu+.
In this very special episode: Kevin begins the show in his fall-back position… he snacks loudly while Merrill tries to talk about television. The sugar wafers call him throughout the episode, and he becomes more and more hungry in spite of snacking. The Idiots talk about what rocked on television and when certain shows are in danger of jumping the shark. Then they break down a list of TV news, including some juicy coverage of renewal and cancellation tidbits. Then, it’s on to what sucked before sounding off about new ratings and reality TV. Finally, the show wraps up with DVDs and a barbaric recommendation.
In this very special episode: The Idiots start out bemoaning the most recent live-tweet, the Nicolas Cage crapfest known as The Wicker Man. Later, Kevin does his artful impression of Merrill, and later extrapolates how they both sound to the audience. There’s promises of taking Merrill to a strip club and maybe a pie in the face during the Late-Night Chat Room. Oh, and the Idiots also take some time to talk about what rocked and what sucked on television these past two weeks. Then more shenanigans with child molestation on Diff’rent Strokes, DVD recap and an Idiot Recommendation.
In this very special episode: Kevin returns from his vacation sunburned and grumpy. Merrill welcomes him back with a signed photo of that hot British chick from Transformers: Turn Off the Dark of the Moon. They catch up, then head into the summer shows with what sucked and what rocked… with a few surprises along the way. Then they talk about TV news, including the Emmy nominations with shows that neither of them watch. Finally, Merrill breaks Kevin’s brain with his Sound Off before moving into DVD releases and Idiot Recommendations.
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: 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 continue their streak of irritating each other. Merrill desperately attempts to be professional, but Kevin’s plans to derail the show prevail. Yet they manage to get through all their TV watching with minimal talk of Flashpoint and a healthy dose of TV news in which Kevin gets in touch with his feminine side. Kevin also manages to rip on Michael Bay while Merrill tries to educate the listeners to the finer points of product placement.
