    Viva Variety - S2E5

    We didn't have to go very far back in time to find our first episode of the Variety Show month here on Those Were The Days. Travis took us to the heyday of Comedy Central, and brought us the European variety show spoof, Viva Variety! Run by the comedy geniuses in The State comedy troupe, this show encapsulates the 90s in a way we haven't experienced yet on this show. We hope you enjoy our chat, and don't forget to check out the show yourself!

    Next week, Audie is taking us to one of the most iconic variety shows ever, HeeHaw.

    Your assignment is to watch HeeHaw S16E17! Check it out on Youtube

    The French Chef - To Roast A Chicken

    The French Chef - To Roast A Chicken

    Well, hello there! Welcome to Julie Child's kitchen. That's right, we went all the way back to the OG cooking show. Amy has brought us a gem of history that was once the only real cooking show available. Julia Child is an institution in the world of cooking TV. So many times she's been imitated and parodied, yet several of us had never actually seen her do her thing on her own show. This was a wonderful trip, and a great way to close out this cooking show month on Those Were The Days.

    Our next them is Variety Shows! First up on our list is coming from Travis

    Your homework is to watch: Viva Variety - S2E5. Available on Archive.org

    Justin Wilson's Easy Cookin' - Chili Rice Chicken a la Creole

    Well, how ya'll are? We went down to the cajun coastline of Louisiana to sit down with Justin Wilson for a spell and have him teach us how to cook. Or maybe we just wanted to listen to his stories? It's hard to tell, but I know we had a good time chatting about.

    Next week, Amy has decided your assignment is to watch Julia Child - How to Roast a Chicken! Available for free on the Roku Channel

    The Twilight Zone - S2E11

    The Twilight Zone - S2E11

    You're entering... The Twilight Zone, with your friends from Those Were The Days! We took on an episode of Twilight Zone that certainly sticks with the vibe of the show, but may just surprise you in how it all plays out. We hope you dig this episode as much as we did!

    Next week, we're starting back on our listener chosen themes like we did before the holidays. This next theme is: COOKING SHOWS! Can't wait to see what the crew picks this time.

    First up is Travis! BUT he doesn't have his episode picked. Keep this podcast in your feed and we'll update you next week on what to watch.

    Speaking of next week, we're all taking a Christmas break, so there won't be an episode. We'll be putting out a re-run for you and we hope you enjoy it.

    Thanks for the wonderful year, everyone! Enjoy the holidays!

Good show, needs more west wing

Do you have nostalgia for old tv shows? Does it make you feel warm and fuzzy to remember your childhood?

Then boy do I got a show for you!

Those were the days takes four friends, adds in some comedy, some tv and a life audience (on twitch at 2DorksTV) and makes and hour or so of bliss every Monday night at 9pm est.

Then catch the episode in your podcatcher

It dives into the show, the plot points and the trivia. Then gives you hosts opinion.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll have a good time going back to the bygone era of tv, be it gunsmoke, greatest American hero or Seinfeld. Still, no west wing but they’ll get there.

I give this show a five out of five just for existing. So give it a listen, you won’t be sorry.
