An episode-by-episode discussion of Space Ghost Coast to Coast.
We return to the Ghost Planet after a bit of an absence to tackle one of our most anticipated episodes! It's a real barn burner!
It hurts in a way that is hard to put into words.
The season begins the sort of energy that can only come from a visit with a member of Monty Python, and leads us to wonder why it is that we and everyone we grew up with can recite skits and gags that none of us ever really understood the humor of.
A spin-off show on a spin-off planet. It strikes a fine balance between skit-based variety show entertainment and the nonsensical ravings of a homeless man yelling on a street corner.
Still between seasons, we get another chance to hear directly from the minds behind Space Ghost.
On this Christmas Eve we pull out a well loved VHS tape to watch the mini-marathon that is A Space Ghost Christmas.
Mantis mating and flirting rituals are examined in this season finale episode written by Joel Hodgson of MST3K fame!
Space Ghost has dreams of hosting an award winning talk show that send him down a ruinous path of becoming a big jerk. Also, his evil twin escapes from the asylum.
Wrestling is real dumb.
Lokar fills in for Space Ghost, while Nick has to scrounge up a flashback sound effect.
In a very casual episodes, David Byrne seems very uncomfortable, and Donny Osmond demands a rematch with Danny Bonaduce.
Nick and Jo are joined by guest host Rachel to talk mostly about pizza. (Apologies for the reduced sound quality, we had to resort to a few backups to get this episode to happen!)
From one of the most aspiring episodes to one of the plainest, this week we are introduces to the late, great, James Kirkconnell.
It's clear exactly which joke the script for this episode was built around, as Space Ghost devises and hosts as Tribute to Women in the Entertainment Industry.
We jump into season 2 with this simulcast special that introduced the world to some brand new cartoons and their directors, and still doesn't treat them with any sort of respect.
This week Nick and Jo revisit this relic from 1994 starring Jim Carey and Kai's Power Goo.
We listen to more creator commentaries for this week, and get a peek at the kind of jokes they weren't allowed to leave in the show.
Through the magic of DVD bonus features we invite some of the shows creators into the studio for some behind the scenes insight.
We finally reach the last episode of the first season. Moltar hurls in his helmet, and no one has their opinion of Jay Leno particularly improved.
We have to do a bit of research on this week's guests, because the show certainly doesn't tell us who they are, nor what a "sniglet" is.
