After a two-week break, the show returns with talk of politics, television, and Christmas. COVID-19 is still an issue as some school systems are getting ready to have students return despite the increasing number of cases and deaths. Barry and LaToya talk about their January 8th anniversary, the day they both resigned from the library system. T’Challa can’t remember his topic, Barry is writing a concept novel, and LaToya is suffering from insomnia.
In what is likely the last episode of 2020, the hosts do some minor reflecting on the year. Talk turns to Christmas and a “one and done” modern classic children’s film that LaToya will never watch again. She and T’Challa finally agree on something as they argue with Barry over what constitutes rap music. Barry and T’Challa celebrate Christmas early, and Barry is thrilled with his gifts from LaToya.
LaToya has slept for less than 3 hours and it shows as she rambles her way through the episode. It is of no consequence to Barry or T’Challa as they are mostly prepped and ready for the show. Who would have thought that there would be so much upcoming streaming content amid the pandemic? And say it isn’t so, AMC may be no more? Plus, Barry still owes LaToya a wall tree and he also can’t live with himself now that perfect attendance is out of reach for this school year.
It’s another season. Yes, we’ve made it to Season 13. If you’re looking forward to much of the same, the show does not disappoint. The hosts (plus T’Challa) return to discuss what has happened since their two-week break and T’Challa asks a question that LaToya is all too ready to answer while his dad must scramble for an appropriate answer.
T’Challa returns just in time for the final episode of the season. He learns that his father, Barry is slowly killing himself and tells LaToya that she’s a loser. Barry shares more on the joy of teaching and everyone talks about what their superpower would be. Could this episode mark the end of the series?
This is our much-anticipated Not Safe For Trump Supporters, Election Results Day 2020 episode. Election Day may have happened days ago but the hosts think that today is the first day of a new era in US politics and life. We know that it’s not the last we’ll hear from Trump but Barry is taking the day to let Biden’s win wash over him. LaToya is waiting for the other shoe to drop. It is 2020 after all. We’ll have to wait until next week to hear T’Challa’s opinion on the election results. Will he be sorry that he missed this week’s discussion on prostates?
It’s the spooktacular episode of season 12. Barry and T’Challa are in the festive mood by watching a marathon of spooky movies while LaToya is being the Halloween Grinch with no plans to hand out candy. Barry’s excited about how his students took part in reading Romeo and Juliet and LaToya makes it clear what her biggest pet peeves are. T’Challa, as always, hangs back and exudes his aloof coolness.
Barry forces LaToya to record the show early. She reminds him that slavery has been abolished. T’Challa returns to the show and reminds us of how much we need him. LaToya and T’Challa debate whether or not Barry is a voyeur or something worse. The hosts discuss their number, although now it’s apparently called a body count. And LaToya urges Barry and T’Challa to get hip to The Social Dilemma.
The hosts meander through another show. Neither prep and seem to flounder without the much-loved T’Challa. What is there to discuss? The usual. Both hosts have just finished watching season two of The Boys, the current season of The Vow, and have also cast their vote in advance of the November election. If you’re curious who they voted for, you’ve obviously never listened to the show.
It’s another unscripted, wholly organic episode of the show. Didn’t get enough talk about Animal Crossing: New Horizons? Want to know what shows the hosts are currently watching? T’Challa again joins in and asks his uniquely thought-provoking questions. And just when you thought you’d heard it all, Barry provides a mental picture that LaToya can’t erase.
