How Rude! The Full House Podcast (comedy)

Brandon and Jon are ringing in the New Year by taking some recent feedback to heart and trying something different for the podcast. This week they're deconstructing "Fuller House: New Year's Eve Countdown", which is about the Fuller House characters counting down to the New Year on New Year's Eve. We hope you enjoy the trivia and our overall explanation of what happened. XOXO

Justine Krueger is back to help us sift through the remains of 'Fuller House' season two: A Tangled Web! Glazed & Confused! New Kids in the House! DJ and Kimmy's High School Reunion! Nutcrackers! Happy New Year Baby! We got through every single sloppy second of it and were pleasantly surprised to find that it's actually better than the former half of the season ... in some ways. Pro: Multiple black actors are given speaking roles. Con: The show decides to give Max a girlfriend in a display of bizarre, difficult to quantify homophobia that is honestly astonishing. Important note: We're taking two weeks off for the holidays, me lovelies, so we'll see you again come January 9. We love you. We'll miss you. But you will never be far from our minds. Creepy, right? XOXO

Carlos Luna is back in the Rude Dude Studio to discuss the first SEVEN episodes of 'Fuller House' season two. "Welcome Back" introduces us to the Ashton Kutcher xerox of a xerox that is Jimmy Gibbler. "Mom Interference" introduces us to CJ and Crystal, characters I'm sure we'll all grow to love over the next twenty seasons of this Goddamn show. "Ramona's Not-So-Epic First Kiss" introduces us to the Irish culture while freaking Brandon right the fuck out. "Curse of Tanner Manor" introduces us to Halloween while "Doggy Daddy" introduces us to a dog who can really take a hot corned cob down his throat like a champion. "Fuller Thanksgiving" introduces us to a hip as fuck Danny Tanner (who we somehow completely forget to mention), and "Girl Talk" introduces us to the new and improved Gia. Also: Straight twelve-year-old Jon asks Carlita out to the Hippie Hop and it doesn't go well. XOXO

Brandon and Jon are back and their bellies are fit to burst with boffo bonus babies, baby. That's right, they're giving birth to little bonus babies. Isn't it beautiful and also a word that starts with "b" that is synonymous with disgusting? This time around your intrepid Dudes are forsaking screens and diving into the world of fine literature with "My Best Friend Is a Movie Star" and "The Story On Older Boys". In the former, poor Michelle must contend with the fact that some people are more treasured than her if she's ever going to make a rich as fuck friend. In the latter, a 14-year-old Stephanie manages to convince everyone at DJ's college she's a freshman because everyone at DJ's college is a fucking moron. Also: Brandon takes a Best Friends Test that may or may not determine the future of his friendship with Jon. Who knows? It may ... and it also may not! XOXO

Flip on your snit and bop on your soggy bounce because it's time for another delicious / nutritious bonus episode! This week our tummies our full of pizza once more as we discuss the 1986 Bill Allen / Lori Loughlin vehicle 'Rad'. It's the timeless story of a white guy who wants to do something and everyone else is like "No way!" and the white guy has to take a stand be all "YES way." Have you seen any number of underdog sporting flicks from the '80s? Then you 100% know what you're getting into with this nonsense: Gouda good music, villainous yuppies backed by snarling, corporate bastards, and enough Canadian background extras to fill three Tim Hortons. Maybe you didn't expect the Canadians. How am I to know? P.S. Jon accidentally refers to the miniseries 'V' as 'Z', so if you wanna call him out on that ... don't. Be nice. Being mean is not rad! P.P.S. Brandon still has that third floating wish from when we covered 'The House Meets the Mouse' and God help us all when he chooses to have it granted. XOXO

Numbs 1: Meghan Murphy is a fantastic, extraordinarily funny person and we were so happy to have her serve as our latest honorary Rude Dude. Numbs 2: She's an enormous Disney nerd and an expert when it comes to their theme parks, which makes her the perfect person to discuss "The House Meets the Mouse". Is it little more than a 40-minute commercial for people who were on the fence about visiting Walt Disney World? Of course not, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Numbs 3: Brandon got a black eye while riding a damn roller coaster and only his Mother can provide answers as to why this happened to him. For why, mother? For why? P.S. Did you notice Brandon never cashed in his third wish? Brandon just has a floating fucking wish that he can use whenever he wants now! He's more dangerous than Michelle Tanner, I do say, I do say. XOXO

Rob Grabowski of the Remake podcast and Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Chicago joined us just in time to mourn the death of democracy ... in more ways than one. True, Trump is our next President, and that's beyond horrifying, but what the fuck is going on at Steve's senior prom? Who's counting THOSE votes and why are we assuming they have our best interests at heart? All I'm saying is that if Kimmy and Gorilla had been taken seriously as candidates they would have been wearing those crowns at the end of the Goddamn day. But no, heaven forbid Rachel and her Stevie not get to stand on that stage, they "earned" it! LOCK. HER. UP! So anyway, "Prom Night" is on the menu this week and it's real fucking dumb and I cannot believe Trump is going to be our next President. But hey, we're still alive, we're having fun, and Jon's gonna throw a pizza prom next year, so maybe it will all be okay. Maybe. XOXO

Nathan Kaplin could have gone to his very grave without having seen a second of the nonsense that is 'Full House'. But what happened to him? We happened to him, we did, we did. We took Nathan, we sat him down, and we made him watch "Room for One More". Fine, we didn't *make* him watch it. We asked him very nicely and he agreed to do it. But even so. Even so! We ruined this young man and for that we should be punished. Punish us. "Room for One More?" is all about Jesse and Becky wanting to have another kid. Their ultimate decision blows our minds and from this point forward we honestly have no idea what is coming next. Like, seriously, what the fuck is going on? Also, a pig named Scruffy is on the scene to warm our hearts and make our blood run cold, and he's the best part of the entire episode. We love you, Scruffy, please eat us out. XOXO

May Tilden took a short hiatus from writing wedding jingles to help us deconstruct "Grand Gift Auto", in which Uncle Joey desperately tries to assert himself as a person worthy of the family's respect. Can he do it with flashy material goods? Can he do it by appealing to the Tanners' basic human decency? No. And no! You will never be truly loved, Joey, you simple, dithering fool. YOU WILL NEVER BE TRULY LOVED. In the midst of this discussion we also make time to plan a Broadway in Chicago revival of 'Grease!' and solve a maddening food mystery, so if you think that might tickle your fancy bone, then get to listening! Did you write a five star review in the iTunes Store, you Goddamn bum? Can we appeal to your basic human decency? PROVE YOUR LOVE. XOXO

Bonus episode? Bonus episode! To celebrate the Halloween season, Jon and Brandon filled their tummies with pizza and are on the floor to tell you all about "Strip or Treat", the 4th season premiere of Freeform's 'Baby Daddy' sitcom. Our experience with 'Baby Daddy' taught us a few things: Straight male friendships are awesome and uncomplicated, young women are shrews, old Moms don't deserve pleasure, and Latin men are mucho-mucho sex gods. It's a moldy, lame show, is what we're trying to say. We also make time to pitch Brandon's new idea for a series and ask an all too important question: Is Tahj Mowry gay ... or should we just simmer down? Happy spooky-ooky Halloween!

P.S. Since the recording, Jon has lowered his rating of "Strip or Treat" to 2.5 Baby Daddies.
