    Fantastic drawn out, hilarious contributions as always Reed. After seeing the retweet, I was wondering whether you’d watch a followup sequel to “Furry Vengeance”? And yes, the threat of “wee wee scrunch” is real.

  • Reed Farrington

    With Brendan Fraser’s comeback in the news, I wasn’t sure if Furry Vengeance was some movie you made up. Thx for your comments, dev!

  • devolutionary

    Reed, during your video codec diatribe, I was going to recommend Plex Media server to you, but that’s a long-term solution and requires some work. Plus Jay’s comedic dubbing of your public service announcement was well worth it instead (1:12 mark?)

  • Ivan Karosus

    Are you trying to actively trying to lose listeners by having REID on? This dude is soo self absorbed that even having an instrumental of The Beautiful People layed with farts can not derail this sociopath off his mundane train of thought! KEEP HIM AWAY!

  • devolutionary

    Oh it’s real and came out during his decline.

  • Reed Farrington

    Don’t worry, Ivan. I only show up every few months or so.

  • Matej Jozanovic

    This episode was amazing. Thank you for having Reed back. The plushie diatribe was classic. Jay derailing the Reed’s codec epic made me cry laughing. And “wee wee scrunch” has to go in the glossary. Best use of soundboard ever. Great episode. Made me feel like it was 2010. Could have used some more Gregg threatening to punch Reed in the Larynx. 6 stars.

  • TimC

    Reed, I think for a lot of us (Reed fans), seeing comments like Ivan’s are part of the fun of you appearances on the show. Hopefully it won’t be too many months before you return, you were on fire this episode.

  • Reed Farrington

    I understand reactions like the one from Ivan more than I understand why the Reed fans like me.

  • schizopolis

    Jay passing on more Asian films….what else is new??

  • OsoDuck

    Reed, you definitely need to get in on the Patreon so you can get access to loads more comments. You’re getting hyped up over there.

  • Reed Farrington

    Yes, I’m quite enjoying reading the comments on Patreon. Perhaps it’s best that I don’t add my own comments on Patreon lest I be accused of bathing in my own self-absorption. Also one may treat my non-participation in the comments of Patreon as a perk of Patreon membership.

  • mikeyt34

    Listening to Reed painfully try to articulate his thoughts is like watching a monkey fuck a football, but the monkey is actually funny.

  • Reed Farrington

    Thanks for coming to my defence, I think, mikey. For the record, I don’t know how to fornicate with a football either and I don’t get any amusement from monkeys.

  • Reed Farrington

    I wanted to address the Ben Kingsley being part Asian Patreon comment thread. I did not know his father was Asian (Indian). No wonder he got cast as Gandhi. Maybe they should take back the Oscar he won for the role. (I’m kidding.)

  • absentmindedosaka

    What Asian film?

  • Nobody

    A wonderful, legendary episode.

    I wonder how Frank would react to Carter, the white guy martial artist in The Paper Tigers. He seems like exactly the kind of character Frank would find either really hilarious or absolutely insufferable. I agree the acting in the movie can be a little spotty at times, but the cast is so likable and Alain Uy is quite good in the lead role.
