Final Reckoning: You’re the Worst

Drama drama everywhere. This episode draws some lines in the sand between Challengers we like and Challengers we can barely tolerate. The eating challenge ends in a predictable way, and a pair end up in Redemption to make amends. That goes about as well as you’d expect it to go in a reality show fueled by booze and anger. Back in the main house, we see other fights, more drama and more people who we’ve decided to hate. No nominations, no voting and of course no eliminations this episode. C’mon MTV.

Final Reckoning: Redemption House of Cards

*ch ch* REDEMPTION HOUSE. This week is all about the Redemption House and the Apocalypse that actually sends people home for once! CT tries his best to stay in the game, but maybe not as hard as Derrick tries. At this stage in the game, I guess you have to give it your best shot to stay in. They’re battling for a million bucks after all. *ch ch* MAIN HOUSE. No real elimination from the main house so it’s a bit laid back, but we end the episode with an eating challenge which is our favorite. Lots of puking and lots of fun! We go way off topic this week, which once guy on iTunes hates. So it goes.

The Boise Brothers starring Abram and Mike: A break from Challenged

We interrupt this regular podcast feed for an episode of Couch Pilots! Wolfie and Tim join the flight as the regular pilots review Boise Brothers, a failed pilot put together by Challenge contestants Abram and Mike to hopefully sell MTV on a reality show. The pilot failed, obviously, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about it. For more details or to subscribe to Couch Pilots, head on over to their website, http://couchpilotspodcast.libsyn.com/.

Final Reckoning: Bro-ing Pains

It’s guy’s night, so grab your whiskey and cowboy hat and leave the women at home. We’re super efficient as we recap this episode but still cover a lot of ground. A nomination, a desperate Banana, a crazy elimination and a dramatic re-enactment of Paulie’s tweets that will hopefully make you hate him more than you already do. Also, how about a little back story on that Semester at Sea sweatshirt this episode? C’mon MTV, you can do better.

Final Reckoning: Shaneless

Eight episodes in and I have a very important question: Will anyone ever be sent home? The mercenaries play for a spot in the house, but let’s be honest… they’re getting into the game either way because if they lose, it’s Redemption House time. We see Kyle slutting it up, drama at a winery, drama in a bus, drama at home, and a salad bowl with lasers shooting out of it. Shane has a strategy in the rugby game, but will it work and is it worth it?

Final Reckoning: Big Little Lies

Killer Queen Kam is the lady with the plan in this episode, but c’mon MTV, are you ever gonna send anyone home? We see the Challengers dig out of a mine, a relationship between Tori and Derrick comes to a head, and Brad finally blinks. All this and more on this wonderful edition of Challenged.

Final Reckoning: A Series of Unfortunate Events

We’re not thrilled about the pace of this season, but we’ll keep bringing you the latest ’cause we love you. Too much drama up in here, too many relationships to follow, and too many people throwing hissy fits. But it’s ok. We see a challenge on a train, we see Brad throw fits, Cara throw fits, Kyle throw fits, Shane throw fits… Are we seeing a pattern. Also, some roosters invade the hen house. All this and more on this amazing episode of Challenged.

Final Reckoning: Breaking Brad

Poor Brad deals with the bad news from the Redemption House, while the rest of the Challengers prepare for a Purge Challenge. We get relationship drama we don’t care about, team drama we’re too old for, and reminisce of the days when we used to get a challenge and an elimination in one week.

The Midnight Drive-In: Transformers The Movie & G.I. Joe The Movie

This week we’re doing a kids night and showing some cartoon movies from our childhoods in the form of 1986’s Transformers The Movie and then following that up with 1987’s G.I. Joe The Movie.  Just remember that “You got the touch, you got the power!”  Yo Joe.

Final Reckoning: The Affair

It’s a shorter episode tonight due to an oncoming illness, but at least we have NyQuil is if beer isn’t on the menu. Of course we cover Paulie and the silly fight, Brad’s reaction to potential infidelity, and the process to get back into the house after you’re in Redemption. Four episodes in and we’re still learning how the game works and very few have been sent home. Brace yourselves for a long season everyone. We’re just getting warmed up.

Fear Factor: Challenge Edition

Today is a very special day for Challenged. Many lessons learned. We are joined by Fear Factor experts from Couch Pilots to discuss the latest episode of Fear Factor starring CT, Cara, Jordan, and Tori. We discuss the episode as well as get behind-the-scenes details from previous contestants on the show.

Final Reckoning: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

We’re here with another recap.  Lots of house drama as Cara and Kyle suck Faith and Paulie into their relationship drama, Cara then pisses off her partner, and find out how nominations and eliminations are going to work this season.  All this and more.

EVICTED – BIG BROTHER SEASON 20: WEEK 4

This week we get Kaitlyn making a big move and causing Team Foute to be surprised by a backdoor eviction.  The one who helped bring it about gets HOH and it all culminates in a big argument about how many left handed people there are in the world.  All this and more!

Final Reckoning: Six Feet Under

Hey, it’s the first episode of a new season! We’re excited to see old favorites and dreading meeting new idiots. As usual, we cover the challenge, the elimination, and the drama. We disagree on Cara’s promiscuity but we’re all on board for the resolution to the fight we always seem to get initially. TJ is playing this game dirty and we learn a bit more about how dirty it’s gonna get.

Well, we made it. Another season finale. Who puts on frozen clothes the fastest? Who eats the most gross food? Do the dad bods stand a chance against professional athletes? All these questions and more are answered. Also our interview with Laurel seems to have made waves in the Twitterverse. But hey, those comments were taken out of context.
