In tribute to Bob Saget, the premiere of "How I Met Your Father" on Hulu and the upcoming Super Bowl, we look at a classic episode from the second season of "How I Met Your Mother".

Ted and his friends get stuck going to a funeral on the night of Super Bowl XLI and have to go the next 18 hours avoiding spoilers for the game. But the question is how is everybody going to avoid not knowing what happened in the game and why did Barney blow all his money betting on the Chicago Bears?

Episode 236–Brotherly Love

Who doesn't love a Lawrence brother?  Who wouldn't love a show with three Lawrence brothers?  Apparently the TV viewing public didn't show it some brotherly love, as this comedy starring three Lawrence brothers lasted two seasons on two separate networks.

Episode 235–Mr. Bogus

This show is so bad that none of us made it past 15 minutes into the first episode, yet it somehow lasted for 3 seasons?!  Apparently Freddie Freaker's cousin gets into situations and hilarity ensues.

In 1989, Betty White got to do something on the final episode of Super Password which many people wanted to do and Bert Convy accidentally did--destroy "The Magic Toaster", aka the device which held a check and the password to win that check.

Greg and Chico watch the premiere episode of the new HBO Max show "Peacemaker" from the twisted mind of James Gunn and starring an invisible man. In the first episode, Peacemaker is fresh off his mission in "The Suicide Squad" where he has to deal with his father, Amanda Waller's squad, Vigilante's voicemails and a crazy lady who he hooked up with at a bar.

A note Chico's stream on the Stream Lounge App was a minute and eleven seconds longer than on Greg's end so if you're starting to follow along you can either do it before the start your stream either at the beginning or at the 1:11 mark.

Episode 234–Photon

It's Chico's birthday and he played his Money in the Bank submission on this show from the mid-80s.  Take the rapidly-growing 80s sport of laser tag, throw in some budget special effects, some rubber monster suits, a plot plucked straight out of The Last Starfighter, and a banging 80s soundtrack, and you get... something that was gone after one season despite turning a profit. Watch as we attempt to break down the demise (and as we try to wrap our collective heads around the allure) of this largely-lost 80s kids show.

Today would have been the 100th birthday of the legendary Betty White.  In tribute to that milestone, we present Pet Set, a light-hearted show where Betty talks with celebrity guests about their animal companions, and talks with other guests about animal-related topics like saving the tigers and talented animals.

Nickelodeon's coverage of the NFL Wild Card was one of the big surprises of 2021 and ended up being a fun broadcast. Like last year we're live watching all the fun as the slime cannons are back in full force!

Greg watches the start of the second half of the 49ers/Cowboys game with Mike joining about a half-hour in as they watch this game go down to the wire with a final playcall that had both of them scratching their heads.

But let's all appreciate the fact we now have a NVP award winner named after a character on a show that we've covered on this show!

We're back with our second (and likely last) edition of the pinball machine show.  We talk about 9 more TV-themed pinball machines, mainly from the last 15 years.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.  CBS' ratings were languishing in the late 1980s and early 1990s, so they spent a lot of money to acquire almost every major sporting event of 1990, plus the Winter Olympics of 1992 and 1994.  Most of the events weren't that thrilling, the return on investment wasn't what was expected, and the Dream Season of 1990 was closer to a nightmare.
