E125 – Yu Yu Hakusho Part 3



Hey Yusuke, those brothers you fought against and just barely beat? They’re still alive, and they weren’t even really trying.

Yusuke and his fellow delinquents unwillingly enter a tournament full of demons. Meanwhile, Michael can’t stop talking about Transformers, Peter appreciates the delinquent charm, and both hosts praise the cheesy ’90s charm.

Also included: format changes, numerous comparisons to Dragon Ball Z, a startling revelation about the transforming Toguro, who is that masked fighter?

Yu Yu Hakusho Part 4 will release September 30th


E124 – Transformers: Armada Conclusion



Transformers Armada ends with a whimper, not a bang. Quite literally, Unicron doesn’t even explode!

The battle finally gets to Cybertron, and somehow becomes even more confusing than ever before. Meanwhile, Michael is simply tired of talking about this show, Peter is disappointed by the ending, and both hosts revel in the knowledge that they’ll never have to watch another episode of Transformers: Armada.

Also included: the magic act of the Minicons, forgetting to mention a last-minute retitling, the toll of Transformers: Armada

Yu Yu Hakusho Part 3 will release September 16


E123 – Transformers Armada Part 3



Surprisingly few outright errors this time around.

Twists and turns abound this season, and some of them even lead to character development! Meanwhile, Michael encounters one of his least favorite tropes, Peter is surprised to find that he actually kind of likes this season, and both hosts discuss things that came up in previous seasons and never again, despite seeming important.

Also included: somehow even MORE betrayals, a possible reference to the Battle of Endor, pining for Beast Wars

Transformers: Armada Part 4 will release August 26th


E122 – Transformers Armada Part 2



Reinforcements arrive for both sides, which means we have even more opportunities for accidental misnaming.

Transformers continue fighting over their smaller cousins despite the Minicons not wanting to fight anymore. Meanwhile, Michael is even more dumbfounded by the lack of characterization for the Minicons considering their relative importance, Peter appreciates a rare moment of normal writing, and both hosts are overwhelmed by the sheer number of new characters. But at least they aren’t just Minicons.

Also included: redundant McGuffin names, endless betrayals, and even more dialogue mistakes!

Transformers: Armada Part 3 will release August 12th


E121 – Transformers: Armada Part 1



The inevitable result of a show’s dub premiering before the show itself.

Autobots and Decepticons continue their eternal war, this time over smaller transformers that supposedly don’t want to be a part of it. Meanwhile, Michael is dumbfounded by the lack of characterization for the Minicons, Peter explains why there are no honorable mentions despite the episodic nature of the show, and both hosts contemplate the possibility that the sequel series is even worse.

Also included: nonsensical dialogue exchanges, the Squeaky-Voiced Teen gets his series debut, is Hotshot prejudiced against Minicons?

Transformers: Armada Part 2 will release July 29


E120 – The Big O Part 2



A season co-produced by Cartoon Network doesn’t pull any punches, be they giant-robot sized and literal or simply mindbending twists.

Roger Smith wakes up in an alternate Paradigm City, where none of the trappings of this show exist. It kind of makes sense, once things wrap up. Meanwhile, Michael is frustrated by a comedy focused episode, Peter points out Michael’s tendency to say he “actually” likes something as though that’s uncommon, and both hosts caution about monumental spoilers.

Also included: playing with toys, Michael’s confusion with barely-related things, further argument as to whether “Red” Dorothy is a robot

Transformers: Armada Part 1 will release July 15

E119 – The Big O Part 1



What happens when everyone in the world loses their memory? No matter, giant robots are here to distract you!

Roger Smith is Paradigm City’s top negotiator, and don’t question what exactly that means. Meanwhile, Michael takes issue with what he considers the show’s stated concept, Peter praises the visual design, and both hosts suffer Big O related amnesia.

Also included: a startling lack of Rita Repulsa, trying to describe Big O’s arms, “Megadeus” vs. “Megadeuce”

The Big O Part 2 will release June 24

E118 – Batman Beyond Part 4



Who is it knocking off members of the Justice League Unlimited? Probably the one you least suspect…

Batman’s back to his old tricks, so no more High School stuff, and a whole lot more Justice League and also an international terrorist organization. Meanwhile, Michael corrects peter’s pronunciation of “Ra’s” and gets confused about when Batman begins came out, Peter doesn’t particularly like a brief batman musical, and both hosts conclude that Batman Beyond is a pretty solid visit.

Also included: Silver Fox Bruce *and* Superman, the flaws of bingeing episodic programming, a sign of Zeta (Project)

The Big O Part 1 will release June 18

Much less importantly, the episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation we discussed briefly is Season 5 Episode 6: The Game. Just watch the first ten minutes, you’ll see *exactly* what we were talking about.


MS61 – Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s



A series in which the oppressed play a trading card game while riding on motorcycles.

Next week: Batman Beyond Part 4


E117 – Batman Beyond Part 3



Did Batman really kill Mad Stan? Hopefully not, because Mad Stan rips.

Terry catches a break from dealing with High School problems… mostly. Now it’s just mutant dogs, vengeful assassins, and a rogue government robot. Meanwhile, Michael recalls another childhood moment of trauma caused by DC, Peter suggests Nelson may have replaced Batman as the ultimate prey, and both hosts conclude that season 2 may have been a little too long.

Also included: False Face’s taser proficiency, The 101 Misdeeds of Nelson, Charlie Brown gets knee-chainsaws
