The Planet of Steves
Keep It Simple, Stupid, because we are back for our fifth season of new/old Wie is de Mol episodes - and we're going back to 2011's offering in El Salvador & Nicaragua! Over these ten weeks, three guys who often wonder what the heck kind of nonsense they've gotten themselves into by covering Mole seasons - Logan, Michael & Bindles - will be recapping and looking back at all that happened on the trip through two countries that we still can't quite believe they visited, beginning with the premiere episode and elimination of no-one. In this episode - we explain why we made the extra effort to do this season, warzones make Michael laugh, Bindles has a Salvadorean friend, we look ahead to some people trafficking, we explain why Dutch people don't tend to speak Spanish, the bus ride threatens to give Papa Bear Gilles de Coster some ideas, Jan doesn't know what a goat is, we discuss the weird claims to fame that this cast have, Pieter Jan doesn't care anymore, Logan gets a new opinion, Michael finds common ground with Art, there are flashbacks to Hong Kong, Horace tempts fate, we finally discuss the first iteration of the Path of Temptation, Australia 6 gets (a small amount of) praise, we wonder who would have gone home, the production team changes, Logan locks in his first set of suspicions (with some exclusions), Bindles teases some hidden clues and accusations are thrown about errors that have already been made. Thank you for listening - we will see you next week for Episode 2! Please note: This season is intended on being spoiler-free, so please watch the episodes along with us. As with our coverage of Seasons 14 & 17, there are no spoilers due to Logan not having seen the season before. However, any season we have already covered (WIDM 10, 14, 17-23 and Renaissance; Belgie 4-11) is fair game though. There are also brief references to Qui est La Taupe and Mole Australia 6. Additional note: Oh, we're only just getting started - our final season of the year begins now!   Social Media: FacebookTwitter MichaelLoganBindles InstagramYouTubePatreon

Two Little Rippers
Compliment anyone who hates your guts, as we are back for our second season of old Amazing Race recaps - Amazing Race Australia 2! Over these twelve weeks, three people who are flattered by your hostility - Logan, Michael & Michelle - have been recapping a season that has an insane reputation amongst fans (which is completely justified), concluding with the final episode and reveal of Shane & Andrew as our winners. In this episode - Michelle's been chatting to the cast, someone else gets undermined, the editors may have gone back and changed some things, the reason that Michelle & Jo lost is revealed, the teachers pick a Detour, Michael tries to defend Shane & Andrew, Logan talks about how he teaches, we wonder if it's frowned upon to swear in front of children, Paul may be an only child, NetMol is brought up (hopefully unnecessarily), Stealth Mode is entered, we try and game theory the challenge at the jail, Jo ventilates, there's the final instalment of Rashie Watch, Pirate Master gets a look-in, Grant has an unfair reputation, Michael delves into the logistics of the treasure chests, we exclusively reveal an unaired incident at the Finish Line, we perform a New Year's (Eve [Eve]) Miracle and Logan tries to spoil next year's Amazing Race Historians. Thank you for listening - we will see you very soon for more episodes! Please note: This episode is intended on being spoiler-free - however, as with our other historical recaps, this episode may contain references to episodes that we have already covered - namely from Seasons 3; 23-32; Australia 3; Canada 2-5 and Asia 5. This episode also contains references to the winners of Amazing Race Asia 1 and US Seasons 17 & 18. Additional note: Now this season is done, we'll be back soon for Hunted 7 (if they ever bother!), Episode #500 and Wie is de Mol: El Salvador & Nicaragua!   Social Media: FacebookTwitter MichaelLoganMichelle InstagramYouTubePatreon
