“What do you guys think? Should we just end this podcast?”

Today we review Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction season 1, episode 6. Mark steals Kyle’s trademark intro and it feels pretty good. Brolin eases into puns that make no sense like, “are we telling the truth, or is this just hard to digest?” Reminds Kyle of Sandra Bullock’s character from Demolition Man, Lenina Huxley, who mixes up expressions, like “you really licked his ass!”

A farewell to James Brolin! It’s JB’s last episode as host. Jesse would love to sing him off, but doesn’t know any Barbra Streisand songs. Chris thinks James Brolin was sleeping in his oversized jacket this whole time. Tiffany is just disappointed that the whole episode wasn’t hosted by literally a jacket.

“The ghosts don’t lie.”

Today we review Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction season 1, episode 3. Everyone lambasts Mark’s intro (again). The group talks about the story introductions performed by host James Brolin, especially his use of unnecessary and confusing props to illustrate very simple points. Also mentioned are Brolin’s infamous cold openings at the top of each episode, in which he says something very obvious and then is abruptly cut off by the show’s theme.

“I’m gonna put that tractor in the barn!”

Today we review Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction season 1, episode 2. Mark tries out a new hello and Chris calls it out. Jesse confuses James Brolin for Burt Reynolds. Kyle doesn’t buy it. Everyone shares their approach to analyzing stories. Chris explains he focuses on the supernatural elements having been raised on that subject matter (through TV shows similar to Beyond Belief).

“I tend to look more to the Rules of the Ghostly World.”

Today we review Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction season 1, episode 1. Jesse introduces the very first episode of Beyond Beyond Belief and Kyle gets excited about the campy 90s flair. Chris asks how everyone discovered the show and everyone has fond memories except for Tiffany, who didn’t grow up with the show but quickly fell in love with it.
