Episode 19 – House

We both have colds this week – so we pay a visit to the diagnostic team at Princeton–Plainsboro Teaching Hospital to see if we have lupus. That’s right, this week we are going to be talking about House.

We also discuss our favourite episodes, why Jeroen may find it hard to watch Bones, what makes this a bad show to bingewatch and our joint love of Hugh Laurie.

Episode 17 – The Venture Bros.

We dust off the first of a (ridiculously) small number of animated shows from the list. That’s right: we’re watching Adult Swim’s own The Venture Bros.

We also discuss our favourite characters, the themes of failue, Peter’s annoyance over the limited number of animate shows on the list and whether Bob Dylan wrote anything better than the Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends theme song.

Jeroen manages to pull out some impressive knowledge as, in
this week’s episode, the Muppet Show is front and centre!

famous Muppet cameos, manatees and somehow Peter once again finds a way to talk
about his love of Paul F. Tompkins.
