New year, new us, new episode! In the tradition of New Year's, Tim and Michael review where they were at the start of the past year as well as what they hope for in the coming one. Tim's plan to move to Germany contrast with Michael's vague resolutions of exercise and other traditional platitudes.
Before the holidays, Tim and Michael sat down to discuss their family's Christmas/holiday traditions. (They also finally went through the backlog of tiny questions that have come up since the start of the show...)
Reflecting on their decades of schooling, Tim and Michael discuss their college experiences. Both don't feel they tried as hard as they could have, and have some regrets at not applying themselves before. Some thought is given to advanced degrees and career switches, as well as a deviation on ideals of game design.
The surprise launch of Slightly Skewed: Season Two snuck up like a black cat on a moonless night! Michael and Tim return to the topic of productivity, discussing the notion of an MVP (as used in the tech field) and how beneficial it can be to submit projects earlier than usual.
Tim and Michael discuss fear! Haunted houses, horror movies, and adrenaline junkies! Speaking of the darker side, the boys talk about who make better characters, heroes or villains?
(Spoiler alert: Villains are cooler -Michael)
Inspired by the brutal purge of Michael's book collection in preparation of an upcoming move, Tim asks what role mementos play in their lives. What is the cutoff for something to be kept or scrapped? And what role do physical objects have in their respective households?
Finally back stateside after 3 weeks in Germany and Iceland, Tim and Michael discuss the differences between the United States and Europe. They also touch on how close to breaking the Death Contract Tim came by ignoring all logic and warnings...
Continuing their discussion of the recently ended Game of Thrones season 7, Tim and Michael rant about more failings of the show, as well as ways for the final season to redeem the storylines and characters it neglected.
The season may have ended, but there's still so much to say about Game of Thrones! In this two part arc, Michael and Tim go through all of the Season 7 storylines, their disappointments, favorite parts (unfortunately few and far between...), and what they hope to see in the last season of the show.
