Episode 84 : Instant Classic
Top Chef Las Vegas & the Amazing Race are discussed and Allison promises a quick but episode and then notably fails, on the quick part that is.

Episode 88 : Season Finale Madness!
The season finale’s of the Amazing Race and Top Chef are covered by the always exciting and excitable Allison and Bryan. While both finale’s were to be found kinda boring, these 2 discuss them like they were the riveting television they were intended to be.

Allison and Bryan just can’t quit the internet or watching reality shows, so they’re back with another batch for you, dear listeners! They cover Races of 2 kinds, those of the RuPaul’s Drag variety and the ones that are Amazing, they also check in on Frank in his (Not So) Entertaining Basement Affair. Patrick sings us a few songs and even writes us an old fashioned e-mail.
Fair warning: for some reason the music all came out louder than usual and we’re not sure why, we tried to fix it, but still, watch out for your ears!
Episode 98 : What’s it Like to…?
By now you know, any podcast worth listening to is one that’s going to get off topic, and so I warn you all up front, it takes us a while to get going on RuPaul’s Drag Race as we deeply discus life, death and the opposite sex. We then move on to one of the best episodes of the Amazing Race before we move on to the final episode of Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair. All this plus What We’re Watching This Week and phone calls a plenty!
Episode 99 : Problems
RuPaul’s Drag Race and the Amazing Race are covered! Yay! It’s a race-tastic show! We’re a bit more mellow this go around as we review shows, which is nice for a change.

It’s a big lovefest of a show this week, so stop reading this and listen to it already!

We get some killer voice messages from number one fan Patrick and a slightly embarrassing call from Allison’s mom.
