00:00 When is this douche ever going to get the show's web addresses right?

02:34 Whoa, has Spike won the lottery? Maybe he has, but a couple in England scooped a very nice chunk of change, but refuse to move out of their government subsidised council house. Should they? Furthermore, what sort of lottery winners would The Boys be? "Bugger it all" or "It ain't gonna change me, mate"?

14:14 The judge who refused to marry the mixed race couple has resigned, but claims no blame. They got married anyway, should he have quit his job over it all?

17:19 Why are The Boys smarter than the average bear? The Boys discuss a recent study that suggests curmudgeons out live smiley folks.

19:00 Pickin' And Grinnin', where the week's current affairs are dissected over a tall glass of country music.

21:00 After a brief alco-check, it's on to This Week In Stuff where The Boys discuss their media week, in order to help you make better viewing/reading/playing decisions. Paul has finally seen the early 70s creeptastic Nigel Kneale classic "The Stone Tape". Tropical! In between bouts of "Mario And Sonic At The Winter Olympics" on the DS, he's dropping spoilers of The Wire's season four all over the place, and having a daddy daughter bonding moment over "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" on Blue Ray. Or is it "Dwarves"? Get ready for a gear crunch, as he goes from Snow White to "Drag Me To Hell". Hopefully his daughter was out of the room by the time that one started....

38:15 What a suspiciously porn-centric week Spike's been having. He wants to put filth into Google Wave, and was thoroughly creeped out by Dan Savage's podcast, where a feminist caller had trouble dealing with wanting to be... well... raped. By a rapist. Not really a rapist, but Spike's convinced she's playing with kinky fire. In another crunching gear change, Spike has discovered a personal Holy Grail; a genuinely funny comedy show for kids. It's the BBC's "Sorry, I've Got No Head", an adult-written and performed hybrid of "The Fast Show" and "Little Britain". Add in a few lazy, so-called "ironic" racial epithets, and it would be an adult comedy show!

48:45 It's been a year since America did the unexpected, and elected a non-white man as President. The Boys (both Obama supporters a year ago) discuss whether O's first year has been a success or a disappointment, and whether their initial enthusiasm was unfounded.
