A Fan’s Guide to “Picking Favorites”: Episode 44, Disney Birthday Smells and YOU!

Separator

By Shannon Fox, @shannonfox

 

Hooray! Another call-in episode! And not only that, but with our “favorite piece of garbage”, Yvonne Strahovski!  And the day after the Emmy Awards, which is kind of crazy because can someone find out if Zac actually sleeps? Razzle may joke about being immortal, but seriously… Zac might be a vampire.  HAS ANYONE ACTUALLY SEEN HIS REFLECTION? DOES HE SPARKLE?

 

You can find this week’s episode on iTunes and Soundcloud.

 

AND you can watch the Periscope they did of the show:

 

Also, tomorrow (Thursday, September 24th) is basically Zachary Levi Day– catch him on “The Today Show” on NBC (starts at 7AM, runs until 10AM), “The Ellen Degeneres Show” (also on NBC, check your local listings for time), and then finally on the 2-HOUR PREMIERE of “HEROES REBORN”, at 8PM ON NBC.  And afterwards,  don’t forget to tune into “Geeks Who Drink” at 11PM on SyFy (and send a tweet to SyFy telling them how much you like the show)!  And it’s ALSO the EIGHTH anniversary of the “Chuck” series premiere, which was also on NBC! D’awwww. Happy Zac Levi Day, everyone! *throws Zac-shaped confetti*

Random Notes from Shannon’s Brain

  • The winner of this week’s “Hey, You’re Awesome” Award goes to… YVONNE STRAHOVSKI.  Because she’s adorable.  AND the only one the guys will let get away with FIVE FAVORITES instead of just one.  Yeah, gurl.
  • Does anyone remember “Sifl & Olly”, because every time they do one of these shows, it reminds me of this:

  • If you needed further proof that Yvonne has transcended mere “human being” status, she DOESN’T EAT SUGAR.  Who can DO that?! An actual ray of sunshine disguised as a person, that’s who.  Sunshine does not need sugar to survive.
  • But the real question is… does Zac eat the worm in the tequila?
  • I promised the guys that I wouldn’t go into the many STDs mentioned in this episode, but then I wrote “Herpes Reborn” instead of “Heroes Reborn” while working on this recap and laughed for an hour straight.  (To be honest, I was going to post an old school STD education video, but they’re all like twenty minutes and ain’t nobody got time for that. Moral of the story: wrap it up, kids.)
  • Razzle…. who hurt you, honey?
  • The look of “a child seeing a unicorn” is ALMOST my resting face, if I’m being honest.  And I definitely had that face when Zac and MINDY KALING presented at the Emmy’s.  LIKE, THAT IS TOO MUCH AWESOME REPRESENTED IN A PRESENTING PAIR.  The only way it could’ve been better is if Amy Poehler was involved, but then my head would’ve exploded so… I’m kind of glad that didn’t happen.
  • THE AMOUNT OF TAR RESEARCH I ENDED UP GETTING INTO FOR THIS RECAP.  Zac, we’re in a fight.
  • I feel like our dear “Kentucky” is becoming “Murica” far more often in the podcast- what do you guys think? Should I start referring to him as such instead?

    Real tequila doesn’t have a worm in it. That’s mezcal.

    Wonderful recap as usual, thanks for the time and effort you put into these ShAnnon!

    Um…the lovely Yvonne, and what she does to the internet when she shows up on it. Yeah…just that.

  4. skorpeoSeptember 23rd, 2015 at 1:26 pm

    P.S. And the fact I had to tape my head back together after Yvonne and Zac had their little giggle at the beginning of the podcast…..

    Great job as always! After the discussion by Zac & Yvonne about Chuck DUEL LIGHTBULBS going off, then saying “we’re not gonna talk about it on the podcast…. two words for you two….POT STIRRERS!❤❤❤ ????

  6. RissaSeptember 23rd, 2015 at 11:00 pm

    Great recap! I really wanted to see a pic of Yvonne’s car with the stickers on it. I guess she couldn’t find a pic of it. The duel lightbulb moment was one of my fave parts as well as the fave smells because I would totally name top 5 as well.
