00:00 Ah, yes. What better way to start the show than with a few laughs, chuckles and good times, as our heroes discuss why their weeks have been "craptastic" and compare horrific mouth noises.

05:31 Catchup time, with some Over/Under stragglers from last week, discussing their choices for the most over-rated and most under-rated TV shows of the 90s, plus some Facebook love and an email from Spike's Mum.

27:55 Pickin' And Grinnin' - the segment of the show where the week in news is examined under a moonshine microscope. (Apple iPad jokes not included)

30:20 This Week In Stuff, where The Boys help you to make better media decisions by sharing, for better or worse, the Stuff they've been inta. Paul's Ebert list grows ever shorter as he crosses off two more movies; Fritz Lang's "M" and puns abound with "My Darling Clementine". Also, which award-winning guitarist has trouble keeping up with the masters and has been playing the wrong chord on the verse? Paul has the scoop, thanks to rockumentary "It Might Get Loud". Another odd week for Spike with a 'pew pew pew'-filled half hour of the first episode of "Firefly", via a very cool piece of software called Boxee (one X, and no 'babee' at the end), via the miracle of social networking. He was convinced by Terry Pratchett's lecture on assisted death (delivered by a 'stunt Pratchett'), watched more "Torchwood" and "The Rules Of Film Noir".

59:24 Over/Under, where we discuss the things that are over-rated and the things that are under-rated about a particular topic. This week, movie soundtracks. Whether it's the orchestral score or a 'songs from the movie' album, The Boys and the commentariat have some interesting thoughts, including "Titanic", "Nick and Nora's Infinite Soundtrack", "Tron", and two appearances from Paul Williams! Agreements? Disagreements? Let 'em know at the usual address.
