In this Christmas episode, the Buddies sip a holiday-themed interpretation of the classic rum punch as S’mike helps Mike unbox his latest Firefly-themed Cargo Crate from Loot Crate. Mike doesn’t know what’s in it, which S’mike uses to torment his compatriot.
Also… Tales from Opry Land! Near-matricide! The scariest roller coaster experience ever! The innate horrors of urban decay! Oh, and and comedy, too!
Btw, the sheer genius of this episode’s title will only become evident if you listen to the episode. Or if you know virtually anything about Firefly.
The Buddies sit down with artisinal Moscow Mules for a rousing play-through of their new favorite game, Superfight! A not-invisible Dr. Horrible squares off against his own insidious creation, and a unicorn with catlike reflexes gets a fancy upgrade.
Mike then relays his experiences drinking in downtown Austin, TX, and the local slogan “Keep Austin Weird” is 100% confirmed. S’mike counters with his experience hanging out with the late improv legend Del Close during his last visit to Austin, and the made-up-just-now slogan “Del Close was fricking insane” is also 100% confirmed.
A 2-year-old’s birthday party also gets a play-by-play break-down, complete with round-robin bounce-housing, cookie cake meltdowns and Disney merchandising.
Also: the socio-political state of modern-day Russia! Improv mills! And no Star Wars spoilers!
Ari and Dan explore the halloween classic, Hocus Pocus(1993). They are joined once again by sister-wives Shannon Gomiller and Kimberley Gomiller. Check your volume levels, as the fun had got a bit noisy.
