In honour of the brilliant new The Muppets movie, we return to this subject to give it a more in depth analysis than in our puppetry episode (yeah right).
But we do, of course, recast TNG yet again. Naturally with Muppets this time around. The graphic below is the finalized recasting we started on the episode.
And also here is as promised… Michael Gorn.

This week we talk about television talent contests. Amazingly, we forgot to talk about Mandi’s experience in the live audience for Canada’s Battle of the Blades. And the Gong Show (see below).
Warriors of Goja
“Jack Osbourne Seal Kid”
The Gong Show
Air Canada’s creepy executive pods.
Star Trek TNG Season 8 on Twitter.

the internet is a weird place: I have no idea exactly what you’re talking about.
pond anime adult: I’m still trying to wrap my head around this one. I hesitate to assume “pond anime” isn’t a thing, because when dealing with anime, anything is potentially a thing. Even a whole sub-genre set in ponds. And, naturally, involving sex.
ponography+word+gaints: “Ponography” refers, as if you didn’t know, to pictures of ponds. The internet is rife with anime ponography. Especially that which involves “gaints”, small creatures named such because they “ain’t giant.”
hurdles in life christina aguilera had: Apparently in an elementary school somewhere Yoda is writing a history report on the former teen diva.
why you mad though: I appreciate how they tried to grammar up the angering “Why U Mad Tho” meme.
hayao miyazaki vs tim burton: This would be a cage match worth witnessing. But, now that I think of it, I’d also like to witness Miyazaki’s take on Alice In Wonderland, Willy Wonka and Sleepy Hollow. More so than Studio Ghibli’s upcoming Miyazaki-less and rather straight looking take on The Borrowers.

After a brief, unplanned hiatus, we’re back with an episode of proportions. Not epic proportions, but human proportions where we wax poetic about the weird anatomy of people far more beautiful than us. We also manage to talk about the oft-maligned, under-rated, misunderstood, yet somewhat problematic, Joss Whedon TV series Dollhouse.
The cast members’ names including the ones we didn’t bother to look up before recording this episode are:
- Helo from BSG as Paul Ballard
- Enver Gjokaj as Victor
- Faith from Buffy as Echo
- Dichen Lachman as Siera
- Fran Kranz as Topher Brink
- Olivia Williams as Adelle DeWitt
- Commander Lock from The Matrix as Boyd Langton
Conspicuously not pictured:
Probably because she has a terrible name.
