In the last live broadcast for 2019, Doktor Faux invites Fidd Chewley into the studio to hash-out any outstanding beefs between them. Reverand peas introduces the show and takes on a historical review of how the show started before mediating between the two over a discussion of professional courtesy, context and feelings. The show devolves into mud-slinging as the two come to realize that the partnership has completely dissolved before Fidd ultimately walks out of the studio. There are no resolutions or compromises. This ended up being a gigantic waste of time.
Doktor Faux returns to Hypercube just in-time after returning his ten-year overdue copy of Steel Dawn to the Blockbuster Quick Drop. Reverand peas is super-excited that robo-peas will be replacing him on the show, and Caller 23 recites the fist 1,438 digits of Pi when some rambunctious asshole shows up and decides they should be on the show.
Reverand [sic] peas [sic] is no longer allowed in the Fremont Children’s Clinic after he took too many Little Hugs Fruit Barrels from the mini-fridge behind the receptionist’s desk, but manages to squeeze himself (and his remaining tumors) into the first half of the show. Doktor Faux talks about how to better yourself through woodworking, and the show concludes with a broadcast of surveillance tapes from the Hypercube airlock featuring Fidd Chewley and the late Doctor Bobby Clock.
peas introduces Scoop McNewsgui, then introduces him again, and again, then the show attempts to start, then peas introduces Scoop McNewsgui. The hosts lie about how good the show is going to be, then peas introduces his new character, Scoop McNewsgui. After playing the first song of the show, “20th Century Newsgui” by The Scoops, peas workshops a new character and names him “Scoop McNewsgui”. The Blind Eye Segment turns out to be good, but it could’ve been better if it’d included some kind of reference to Scoop McNewsgui. Week 3 of Is It a Band is played, and Christ be damned if Scoop McNewsgui doesn’t join the show for the live post-game report. In the second half, peas comes out of nowhere with a hot new idea: a Slavic character named “Scoop McNewsgui”, an offering which single-handedly saves the show — not just for THIS episode, but for perpetuity in all possible universes. As usual, peas apologizes for the show at the end of the show, but somehow forgets to apologize for inventing Scoop McNewsgui. This episode is best listened-to with earplugs.
It’s the New Year’s Eve episode of a podcast, which means you already know it’s going to suck and the hosts will get wasted, HOWEVER COMMA business still gets done, yo. Dok Cosmac is in the studio to join the hosts for the final Is It a Band game of the season, after which an ultimate champ is crowned and the season’s statistics are released by Judge Scalpod. After stumbling through the Blind Eye and viewer mail segments, peas apologizes for the episode and 2018 in general. With the final show of the year in the can, Fidd & Faux pack the entire season in a truck and drive it into Yucca Mountain.
