We've scoured the Internet and found more of the crazy, cheap, and just bad local commercials, enough for this second helping.  From Dirt Cheap Liquor to our personal favorite Crazy Gideon, these ads have gone viral for a reason.

In the latest edition of the remastered series we look back to our New Year's Eve 2019 episode. We look at one of the biggest television disasters of all-time in First Night 2013 presented by Jamie Kennedy.

Enjoy as we talk about a lot of very 2012-ish things in this episode like Psy, Angry Birds, the Mitt Romney 47% tape and that Pepsi commercial with Drew Brees and One Direction.

One of our most popular series of shows is back for a third (and final?) installment.  The three of us look at more video game adaptions of TV shows, one going back almost 40 years.  Grab your controller and press start on The Video Game Show, Part 3.

Episode 200–The Weird Al Show

This is it!  The big 2-0-0!  We look back at a great, short-lived show from the late 90s with a great cast of characters and array of guests, which got mishandled by the network during a time when there was a push towards educational and informational television on Saturday mornings.

It's time to release the drone in the newest edition of the It Was a Thing on TV remastered series as we go back to our Christmas 2019 episode covering the Food Network series (Charles Stiles) Mystery Diners.

We cover some of our favorite moments of (Charles Stiles) Mystery Diners including drag queen trivia shows, a grilled cheese eating contest and memorabilia mishaps in a diner.

It's listener request time!  We received a request to cover Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa months ago, and we finally found a spot for it on our schedule.  When a comet lands in the Old West, the end result is anthropomorphic cows.  Enjoy their adventures in this ABC cartoon from the early 90s.

Episode 198–Fall TV Campaigns

The new Fall TV season is here!  We're looking back at some classic Fall TV campaigns from the different networks, from reaching to the stars to insisting that we should all be there.

It's time to fight the frizzies in the newest edition of the It Was a Thing on TV Remastered series. This time we go back to Episode 16 and the Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978 on CBS.

Relive Harvey Korman pouring a drink over a hole in his head, an alien chef with multiple arms, the debut of Boba Fett and whatever the hell Itchy was viewing in his helmet.

Episode 197–Jeopardy! ties

The 38th season of Jeopardy! begins tonight and we felt it appropriate to talk about show rarities over the years.  We discuss various oddball tied games over the years, specifically games where contestants tied at zero or games in which a tiebreaker was used.

Screech, Slater, and Zack have all graduated from Bayside.  What's up next for the recent grads?  College, of course.  They're up to their usual mischief with the occasional familiar face and some new faces.  And most importantly, Bob Golic.
