I love you guys. But I don't make tv shows and I have no plans to make a TV show. I love talking about how my favorite show came to be but I'm a bit bored by the depth of technical analysis

That transition at 30:53 is so bad, I wonder what had to be cut out regarding Alan and Aziz's experience having control over writing their show...?

Be even better if youtube had the full episodes to see just before so we could review as well. Taskmaster does it with their show and podcast.

Alan Yang was great, Initially I thought they should have two cast members but Alan's insight to the writing and fun facts was very entertaining.
