This Week in TBTL: Quizmaster Andrew and giving up on True Detective

July 3, 2015

A hand-crafted, shade-grown, beard-forward recap of the last week’s goings-on in the TBTL universe.  It will run every Friday morning, because I know none of you reads on the weekend.

(Last) FRIDAY: MSNBC’s Chris Hayes joins the program to take on Luke in a bracing round of flag trivia with Quizmaster Andrew, and promises more TBTL Easter eggs on his television show.  Also, Luke’s mom joins the show to offer her advice on crashing faith-based nautical adventures.

MONDAY:  What’s the difference between a muumuu and a housecoat?  On a special Phyllis Phmonday edition, guest host Phyllis Fletcher helps Andrew suss this out.  Also, apparently the Supreme Court did something on Friday?

TUESDAY: Luke reports in from New York City (The Big Red Fruit! Empire Place!  Town of People and Lights!) to discuss his adventures at Camp Wandawega and hashes out just what in the hell is going on with this season of True Detective with Andrew.

WEDNESDAY: John Moe sways Andrew on watching Adventure Time and listening to John’s new podcast about Adventure Time, Conversation Parade, plus Stu subs in for Luke to talk about a regrettably-named dog and the yards of tattooed, Wisconsinite flesh to be found at the Wisconsin Dells.

THURSDAY: Quizmaster Andrew returns (seriously, would one of you guys Photoshop this already) to test Stu and engineer Johnny on their knowledge of movie taglines.  Plus, Andrew tries to get a Mame meme going, the disastrous Harbaugh/Cowherd interview is examined, and Stephen Colbert is praised.


This was my view while sitting in for Luke on Wednesday and Thursday.

This is not some fly-by-night operation, folks.  That’s, like, four screens.  Four!  Did any of them improve that dog’s name?  No.


That’s right.  A TBTL Newsletter.  Every Friday.  In your electronic mailbox.  Containing show recaps, a Ten of the Week, notes from Luke and Andrew, cutting room floor items from the past week, and news about upcoming TBTL events and ephemera.  More ephemera than you’ll know what to do with, frankly.
