Episode 046: BATTLECAST 3!

June 22nd, 2009 · 5 Comments

* Welcome to the Battlecast!

* After the hilarity of getting everything together, we finally get underway to try and determine which is the funniest television series of all time. The winner will surprise you… or probably won’t.

* The video is forthcoming. I was seriously going to have it available early, but ran out of time. Maybe I’ll get to it tomorrow.

* I marked the episode as explicit, since David drops the F*bomb a few times. What an ass.
