BB14: Suffering From Realness -- Week 2 Recap/Analysis



The second round of carnage is complete inside the Big Brother house.  Another pair of players has left the game -- this week's twosome decidedly more gruesome than the first -- and we're here to go over all of it.

Plus, how do we see Shane's reign as HoH playing out? And, more importantly, how might Willie's expulsion from the game and subsequent mix-up with the law affect the Hantz empire?

BB14: Week 1 Recap



It's been an electric two weeks so far in the Big Brother house and we're breaking it all down, Cajun style.  In this episode, we go over the effect the coaches have had on the game, analyze the player draft, evaluate all of the strategic happenings within the house, and forecast how we think the upcoming week might play out.

Plus, how long will it take for Ian to seal the deal with Ashley?  And do blondes still hate other blondes?

(They do).

SPOILER ALERT: Contained in this episode are all of the major events that have taken place in the house all the way through the Week 2 PoV competition results.  Hopefully you're cool with that.

BB14: Season Preview




As post-racial America prepares for the post-Rachel era, we bring you an in-depth look at this summer's cast.   Plus, what impact will the mentors have on the game?  When will Willie to go public about his Hantzashian status?  And who will be left at the end of this inevitable wreckage to collect the grossly cheap sounding half-million dollar prize? 


Find out when you stream this episode HERE or find it on iTunes HERE.


SPOILER ALERT: As we are people who watch Big Brother correctly (i.e. follow along with the progress on the live feeds), our episodes will always contain the most up to the minute information from within the house at the time of recording.  In this instance, that means that contained in this episode are the identities of the four returning players as well as the rumored winner of the first HoH competition.  Hopefully you're cool with that.

BB12: A Diabolical Look Back with Matt Hoffman


If you're a Big Brother fan who also thinks "The Sopranos" was a bit conservative with the cursing, we've got the interview you've been waiting for.

For our first ever BB retrospective, joining us live from The Gremlin Cave is none other than Matt Hoffman. In this episode, we'll discuss how The Bragade Brigade really came together, his controversial use of the Diamond Power of Veto, and how a bag of pretzels may have cost him the game. Plus, what are Brendon and Rachel really like off-camera?  And which BB12 contestant did Matt think was handicapped prior to entering the house? All this and more when you stream the episode HERE or find it on iTunes HERE.

Big Brother and Breaking Bad both bounce back to our TV screens next week, and we plan to cover both of them in as much detail as we can, kicking off with a BB14 preview show going over the contestants, format, and rumoured twists for the season. In the meantime, stay updated by following us on Twitter below and/or liking the podcast on Facebook HERE.



P.S. Some listeners have reported having problems accessing older episodes on iTunes. We're hoping that there's an easy fix to this problem, but in the meantime we'll update the blog with direct links for downloading them. This episode can be downloaded HERE.
