We previously talked about the 1990 MLB All-Star Game, with its long rain delay.  Now, we're talking about what happened during that delay.  CBS fired up an episode of its freshman hit Rescue 911.  It was a bit of an odd selection, maybe more so because this episode had a gruesome event, during a jovial event (The All-Star Game.)

Back 219 episodes ago (episode 25, if you can't do the math), we talked about the original reality show with one contestant and everything was created with him in mind.  Now on episode 244, we're talking about the sequel with new actors, twice the Schmoes, and a falcon.

Due to some mature subject matter, listener discretion is advised.

This is one show we have been anticipating for some time.  Greg (for 20 or so minutes), Chico, and Mike watch the debut episode of the Legends of the Hidden Temple reboot.  Since it is a live show and we like keeping as much of the show intact as possible, you'll hear the same technical difficulties we experienced.

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.

Our games continue with men battling bears in bear-themed competition.  That's it.  We talk about other things like Bil Dwyer and Matt Vasgersian because...it's just men battling bears.  Did you know Honey Bump is a bear?  IMDb says so!

Our Olympic extravaganza continues with a look into the life and loves of Ryan Lochte, the semi-quotable and infamous star of the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympic games.  The first half of the show is about What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, while the second half is mostly about Lochte's wit and wis-dumb including interviews and quotes said by the man himself.  Jeah!

Episode 121–Tiger King

On this Christmas Eve we look back at what was the binge watching hit at the start of the COVID lockdown this year in Tiger King on Netflix. We look at the insane cast of characters including Joe Exotic, Jeff Lowe and yes that b***h Carole Baskin!

Due to some strong subject matter in the show, listener discretion is advised.

Episode 96–Utopia

It's another social experiment gone wrong, in multiple ways.  Utopia didn't last two months and it cost FOX $50 million in just acquiring its rights.  Surely some heads rolled.  And what's the deal with the cartoonist as host?

Episode 95–Kid Nation

A world run by kids--no curfews, unlimited candy, and no homework...right?  Here's a social experiment from 2007 which sought out to see how 40 children would run their own society, CBS' entry Kid Nation.

The CW will start airing reruns of the amazing UK version of Taskmaster, starting on Sunday, August 2.  It isn't the first appearance of the creative competition show.  Comedy Central had a series of 8 episodes in 2018 which quickly disappeared.  If it's so good, what happened?
