Now this is a story all about how Carlton ended up going from the world’s most low-rent prom to the substance abuse ward in the blink of his tweaked-out eye. Intrigued? Join Chelsea and Andrew as they examine why even CONSIDERING using drugs will put your entire family in grave danger. Uncle Phil will be extremely disappointed if you don’t.
The stakes are high and the sentences are long here in Pyramid Corners, Oklahoma. Join Chelsea, Andrew, and first-ever podcast guest Noel, as they ride the roller coaster of a teenage heartbreak-induced makeover. Will Dorothy Jane find love easier to navigate as a blond? How long has Callie Kimbrough actually been in high school? And what could Ruth Ann and Steven Floyd have done in season 1 to avoid getting written off for season 2? When the sun comes up, we will discuss all.
If you drop kick your jacket when you come through the door, does no one “care,” “stare,” or “glare”? This is just one of the many delicious mysteries of MR. BELVEDERE, the classic show Chelsea and Andy are tackling in this episode. Is little Wesley really the manipulative sociopath the family makes him out to be? How many famous people has Mr. Belvedere actually worked for? And did Heather ever manage to pass her summer school class?? The answers to some of these questions will be answered; others are lost to time. Join us, won’t you? We promise not to stare or glare.
The Brady Bunch are in the (sanitized, Euro-American) Thanksgiving spirit! Join Chelsea and Andrew as they wade through a swamp of insensitivity, problematic nomenclature, revisionist history, and groovy slang to get to the heart of the Thanksgiving holiday itself: sight gags. Ad-libbing abounds on this trip down memory lane to an older, less-inclusive time. Happy Native American Heritage Month! *facepalm*
In their first foray into the world of action drama and mullets, Chelsea and Andrew follow Angus MacGyver as he tries to single-handedly save his young friend, stop black rhino poaching in its abominable tracks, AND enjoy his trip to stock footage of Africa. Jeepin’ ain’t easy, but MacGyver’s mullet makes it look good. Adopt a rhino! Name it MacGyver! Learn science and then use it to come up with waterslide-based plans of action! The exhortations are seemingly endless. ***AND we draw the winner of the Click-or-Treat Very Special Prize Package!!***
It’s hard out there for a pimp, especially when his name is “Mike” and he’s working out of a coffee shop in Times Square.

Will Tootie be recruited into underage sex work: braces, bowl-cut, and all? Or will Mrs. Garrett’s impeccable phone acting skills somehow save the day? There’s only one way to find out.
Any 90s kid knows from TV that the best way to end bullying is with… more bullying? Join Chelsea and Andrew as they plumb the depths of the child-to-child “cruel to be kind” de-escalation method, front-line toddler reportage, and fat-shaming a capella songs. There may be some learning, and there’s a 100% chance that a “hug therapist” will show up.
Stevil is back, and he’s more off-putting than the last time! And this time, as the title clearly states, he is not alone! Join Chelsea, Andrew, Miles, Steve, Stevil, Carl and Carlsbad (everyone else is out trick-or-treating) as we journey to the center of the uncanny valley to see… if there’s any good reason they made another Stevil episode. Is it spooky? Sure. Funny? You betcha. Over-snacked? 100%. #ClickorTreat, y’all!

DESIGNING WOMEN: Great show, or greatest show ever set in an interior design firm in the South?

An extremely topical discussion ensues, about a Very Special Episode that aired thirty years ago.
