Episode 89: Me Turn Knob. Me See Cowboy. Cowboy Go Bang Bang.

Another Wednesday, and time for your mid-week sweet treat!

In minute 89, Charlie takes the chocolate bar that Mike Teevee doesn’t have the imagination to realize is actually there. Everyone has different ideas for what this technology could lead to, including David. Mike Teevee, of course, wants to use it on himself, and does just that…without permission. In doing so, he gets divided into a million pieces. Jason compares his parenting technique to a hockey great. We discuss the history of the TV dinner, and Jason gets judgmental about the use of them for lunches. We also talk about Wonkavision as a tool for bettering humanity.

Episode 88: Everything Always Comes Back to Nickelback

It’s a brand new week! Thanks for starting it with us!

In minute 88, Mike Teevee is interrupting Willy Wonka, and explains television poorly. Wonka explains how he created Wonkavision…poorly. Also, we realize how much of this scene is lost in translation with today’s television technology. Jason explains his version of 4K to David. We briefly discuss video formats, and why formats end up being adopted. Jason makes a Star Trek reference that completely goes over David’s head. Wonka gives us another literary quote, and we talk Lewis Carroll’s gifts to the literary canon.

Episode 87: Gotta Grind Those Rails

Happy Friday!

In minute 87, bubbles, bubbles, everywhere…but not the same kind we previously saw. The WonkaMobile goes through the Hsawaknow, and comes out clean and dry through the magic of dry cleaning. Grandpa Joe lets us know about his hygiene habits, and Mike Teevee thinks that the ride was pretty pointless. We are also introduced to a new room with a camera in it. David comes up with a new system of measurement. Jason gets ahead of himself. Jason tries to use Japanese terms, but gets them confused, so we learn a few new Japanese terms. We also talk about John Joseph Merlin, who is the first known maker of roller skates, and, an inventor of clockwork robots/automatons…in the 18th century.

We’ll see you back here next week!
