Our number one fan Patrick helps Bryan talk about Charm School episode 4 as well as the BBC America series Don’t Tell the Bride. Tim visits again to talk about his love of Real World, Road Rules and Real World/Road Rules Challenge : the Duel II. (And before you all write in, Bryan mistakenly refers to Real World : San Fransico as the 2nd Season, it was the 3rd) Then things come full circle and they talk about Charm School some more.
