    S06E14: Johnny and Gyro Go to an Escape Room

    S06E14: Johnny and Gyro Go to an Escape Room

    Gyro takes a moment to try his hand at architecture criticism. We meet a strange man with a skull soul patch who lives in a Zelda forest. We also meet Hot Pants, who will apparently casually lynch anyone who touches their beef and always has shaving cream at the ready. We figure out that Diego Brando is actually devoutly religious (he believes in himself). And we spend far too long trying to figure out if dinosaurs are good at spreadsheets.

    S06E13: Diego Brando Supports the Middle Class

    S06E13: Diego Brando Supports the Middle Class

    We can be absolutely certain that nobody was alive 2000 years ago, certainly no significant religious figures. Diego Brando's backstory remains full of terrible dad behavior. Johnny's corpse part is a vaccine against dinosaurification, which is a shame because Gyro becoming a dinosaur is extremely hot. If your town is full of rats, those rats turning into dinosaurs is really an upgrade. And we meet (and say goodbye to) Ferdinand, who honestly is a high quality villain who deserved more time to live. Ferdinand Forever.

    S06E12: Manic Pixie Nightmare Dinosaur

    S06E12: Manic Pixie Nightmare Dinosaur

    Johnny Joestar min-maxed his character sheet and put all his knowledge points in "Horse". Araki can still only draw three faces, one of which is Britney Spears (not a criticism!). Diego Brando slowly turns into both a dinosaur and also the worst possible plus-one to a Tinder hook-up. Eliz and Courtney remain unapologetic Dio stans. Johnny's stand looks different now when he uses it and so of course we have to Explain that. Gyro is growing and developing as a character, which we can see by how he wads Johnny up into a tiny ball. And hope you weren't too attached to that dead bear because it's a dinosaur now.

    S06E11: Joseph of Arimathea's Technicolor Dreamcoat

    For our longest episode yet, we discuss the entire Tusk arc, and if spinning fingernails were too much for you, well, we are sorry but you're going to have to deal with spinning toenails too. Marvel as Araki strip-mines Catholicism for ~aesthetic~. Say hello and goodbye to one Baron von Stroheim. We spend quality time with the President of the United States of America who is definitely a really good dude. We get a long, confusing fight with a kid who has a winch in his mouth. Johnny develops a case of the old Galaxy Brain. We learn what Eliz thinks the cutest stand in all of JoJo's is and it's going to surprise you. And we talk at length about the merits of Steel Ball Run as sex education.

    S06E10: It's Not Bee Bombs, It's Spinning Nails

    This week we un-mourn Mountain Tim. Gyro and Johnny are doing all kinds of interesting things in a barn. We revisit the Mountain Tim Test of Stands for Oyecomeva, who likes to explode things and also had explosives on him when he got his Stand (2/2 Tims). Gyro officially joins the Jojo's Bad Dad Club. And we debate the moral character of a fictional nine-year-old for exactly as long as the matter deserves.

    S06E09: The Most Traumatic Take-Your-Child-To-Work Day

    S06E09: The Most Traumatic Take-Your-Child-To-Work Day

    Welcome back to the show! We are back from our unannounced hiatus to grapple a series of difficult questions: Italy -- is it a real country? (Jury remains out on this one.) Johnny asks Gyro the tough questions, such as "why are so many people trying to kill you?" An extended flashback offers the answer to the lingering question "what are those things on Gyro's face?" (but nobody is happy about the answer). And we say goodbye to the country's most popular cowboy, Mountain Tim, since it seems like he's not, uh, alive anymore...?
