They may be lesser characters, but are no less essential to our favorite TV shows or movies. They’re called sidekicks, and our podcasters trade jabs at faves and the ones that they’d rather kill off in the first five minutes of the storyline. Then they put one of the quintessential sidekicks - Batman’s Robin - on the stand for another round of “Talent or No Talent.” And for the taste test, they thought it was high time to bust out another boozy chocolate bar.
In this episode, Fernando and Jamie talk about child actors – which ones we want to hug to death, and which ones need a time-out. Then keeping with the child actor theme, we face off in another “Who Would Win” debate – the Battle of the Karate Kids. And before we signed off, we sampled a hot chili potato snack from Japan called “Karamucho.” Cold beer would have been perfect with it!
Smear your nostrils with Vicks, because our podcasters ponder the joys of public restrooms in this episode. Then, in the “Prime Picks” segment, they share their current TV faves – it may be something new, or a never-watched oldie. The snacky snack they chose for this taste test was sweet Jalapeno beef jerky. Perfect after a traumatic experience in a public bathroom!
Fernando and Jamie talk about the golden age of Saturday morning cartoons and afterschool kids’ shows. Then they single out a goateed cartoon character for another rousing debate of Talent or No Talent. Rounding out the episode is a sampling of an exotic snack from the Philippines.
Who will be accused next? Who indeed? Fern and Jamie offer their fake predictions. Next, it’s a battle of fictional characters – Tony the Tiger vs Foghorn Leghorn. Followed with a taste test of another intriguing Kit Kat - wasabi flavor.
Sprinkle us on a pizza and enjoy all our cheesy goodness! Fave childhood pizza parlors, trends, pet peeves, and more. And what’s a tasty chaser after pizza? Samples of brandy-filled chocolate, of course!
In their debut episode, Fernando and Jamie dive right into the Star Wars trilogies. They keep the Force going with a rousing “Talent or No Talent” debate about Wicket actor Warwick Davis. Then sample a consomme-flavored snack from Japan called “Chip Star.”
