I didn’t look through all 168 episodes, but as far as I can remember, Rae has never been on the podcast without Amrie. 🙂
Interestingly, this was an episode I totally enjoyed even though I do not watch ANY of the shows you talked about! Wells, except for some of the reality. But prime time? Nope.
I had to leave a comment especially for Amrie about Supernatural and the pile she has saved up on the DVR. Amrie, this season is SO good! And I haven’t loved the past two much at all. Except for that one episode about werewolves that was total crap (8.4 Bitten) that has nothing to do with anything and I highly recommend you just delete, the rest of the season feels like classic season 2. This from me, who live the show but doesn’t love Cas or Bobbie and am still pissed they killed off Joe and Ellen. They have introduced some new things (but nothing crazy) that build on previous mythology and it actually works. So catch up!
I cant’ wait for Monday!
I agree with Patty about Supernatural having some really great episodes this season. However, I thought that Bitten was one of those really great episodes! 🙂
The only thing you covered that I don’t watch is Scandal (I actually skipped over it because I do have plans at some point to actually watch it and trying to avoid spoilers until then.) Oh, and I never watch the Grammys and had no idea who half the people you were talking about were. 🙂
Loved the addition of special guest John. He blended in quite well. Looking forward to your next podcast. Thanks for getting me through a back log of invoicing!
I wanted to mention I really liked John too. Plus he liked The XFiles so how could I NOT like him?
