      Oh god the third season episode 1 was the worst! For some reason Netflix defaults to it. Only people in Austin and LA would think that episode makes any sense.

    Making fun of the 3D directory explorer on the Jurassic Park computer wasn't something an artist made up for the movie. That was a real program for SGI workstations that were in the movie for product placement. Silicon Graphics paid to be in the movie and showcase their software.

    I actually thought Zach was pretty funny. He was getting loud and interrupty by the end but I think he was getting just a bit drunk haha. I didn't detect anyone getting annoyed with him but maybe they were. I have new appreciation for Zachary Levi Pugh. Which, sorry Barbara, I heard it from Wikipedia first  stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

    Zach needed to shut the hell up during this podcast, no one could get a word in, and when they did start talking, he just spoke over them until they stopped talking. i could almost see steam coming out of Burnies ears every time Zach interupted him. Never invite him again

    I'm sorry, I don't want to sound mean, but the guest they had on this podcast was constantly interrupting EVERYONE. Like to the point where you can't hear what anyone was saying, and whoever happened to be talking would have to stop because this guy doesn't know how to let other people talk. Sorry if that was harsh, but it was really annoying...

    Burnie is right about those Mini NES consoles being the hot christmas item, it is impossible to buy them at retail now and people who missed out on one are abusing staff of the stores that stocked them, which is pretty sad really, grown adults throwing tantrums because a toy sold out.

    i agree with Gavin on the email thing, unless told to i shouldn't need to reply to all my emails if i was asked to go somewhere and i didn't replay just assume no otherwise i would have said something. and OMG i thought the guest looked familiar and he's the actor who played Chuck Bartowski in the tv series chuck i loved that series, small world i guess.

    Did anyone else notice that Gavin and Gus's conversation about the slow mo guys battlefield 1 video, at 1:04:15, was cut in? Zach was partially in Gavin's camera shot for the entire podcast but for that section.

      I think you're right, notice the pillow gavin leans his arm on, it disappears in the next shot with Zach in it. Besides, Zach was pretty vocal during the podcast, and I doubt he would've been that quiet during a convo like that.

    Just a warning that this comment may not be pleasant for some who may read this.


    I got to say, Zach was ok at first but come on! What kind of a guest
    puts his feet on the hosts' table? That's totally disrespect of the
    entire show and the hosts. To me at least. I would not accept that one
    bit. And i didn't like that he was interrupting every once in a while
    everyone with a off the topic comment or joke. Just because he's famous
    (i personaly didn't know the man until this podcasts' show), doesn't
    mean he can do or say whatever the heck he likes. 


    You are the guest. You should feel honored that a show (any show) invited you to be a part of it. 

    You can't just do whatever you want. Yes it feels like and it IS like a family/friendly atmosphere on the show but still. Respect is applied. The hosts may have not been bothered at all, but i, as a viewer, didn't like him with the way he was acting.


    I'm sorry that i may have upset some of Zach's fan, but that's how i felt and i wanted to say my opinion about this. You may disagree or even agree, but i just felt that i had to point that out. 

    Again, i'm sorry for upseting you.

      I do agree with you that, not knowing or seeing Zach before this he was being incredibly nonchalant in regards to etiquette and respect for a podcast he was asked to be a guest on, it may have come off as edgy. However I also believe that the precedent beforehand is that guests should simply be themselves and be comfortable. He did that and it played well in the show, which I think in turn takes away from any anxiety anyone involved may have felt from being in front of a live broadcast. I liked it personally and would love to see Zach again.

      Not one of Zach's fans never seen him before but I think you're thinking about this too much your interpretation is lacking one aspect he and everyone was acting CASUAL. Not rude he just felt comfortable because it's a pretty laid back environment.

      tagger 40 and someguyontheinternet


      You are right. I did overthink about this and now that i read my post here again, i am like "meh, i think i overdid it a bit." I'm not excusing myself or anything, it was just my own opinion on some stuff that took place there. That's all.

    Emails should be replied, always! Servers fail to send, servers fail to receive, or maybe one has too many addresses to keep up with "ghost replies" AKA "I don't reply so: no".

    I'm 100% with Barbara on email/text responses. I'd rather get a simple "no" than holding off plans because I'm giving someone a chance to respond rather than assuming they saw it and aren't interested. Gavin is a logistics nightmare!

    Gavin definitely doesn't understand that not replying back is much worse than just saying no to them in the first place. People can't move on to other options when you got people like Gavin who can't give a quick reply and just idle instead.


    Also he should just have his signature in his emails just be "No." so he can reply to an email and just send it as it since he clearly doesn't have time to do things that people ask him to do. That's the best time saver for a person like him.
