In the first new installment of 2011, the boys hit the ground running with all guns blazing, full of piss and vinegar, and other cliché metaphors as well! After an opening exchange of pleasantries and congratulations on Robbie's commitment to arrive on time despite obstacles both psychological and auto vehicular, talk turns to a recent essay by Patton Oswalt on the current state of so-called geek culture, and the remainder of the hour blazes by like The Flash on an espresso bender. By turns confessional, confrontational, conspiratorial, and ultimately conciliatory (in a cognitive sort of way) the show's conversational cuisinart tries like hell to process tribalism, consumerism, nostalgia, technocracy, identity, and other conundrums into a media-based 21st century gumbo, with observations about the lack of neckwear for chickens and visions of Jabba The Hutt feeding his enemies to Tony Robbins thrown in for spice and color. Does the resulting dish satisfy? Let us know. Music by Neighborhood Bullys and Sorrows
