Ep 65: So, This Monica Lewinsky (S3E18)

| 0 comments

When Picard is re-re-re-body snatched and replaced by an insane impostor, the crew goes through the same routine of misgivings-leading-to-mutiny that they always do. Meanwhile, the real Captain has to escape from space jail with a blue cadet, an ersatz Nausicaan, and a big fan of Australian opera. Who will wind up doing the corny monologue jokes in this episode? Will Wesley let Picard hit on Beverly? Where we gonna poop? It’s the episode where Picard turns the music up to eleven.

Hello babies!

Happy back to school season! We hope you have brand new school supplies! Didn’t you love the feeling of sharpening a brand new pencil for the first time? Although Fall will be upon us soon, we’re still holding onto Summer by discussing Personal Water Crafts. This week on Chunch Chat we discuss Martha Stewart’s pea fowl and their new home next to Ben Chunch! On Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia entry for “Accidental Damage of Art.” Our very special friend and ex producer Travis McElroy joins in to talk about his impending fatherhood. On Expert Hour, Rick “The Hambone” Hammond stops in to teach us about the messages our Hawaiian shirts are broadcasting to the world!
