Studio: Fausto Fernos & Marc Felion
What It Is
A gay couple hang out with guests and discuss things in the news.
This show drops an episode five days a week. Episodes tend to run an hour to seventy minutes, so lots of content here. Sometimes, an episode won’t come out for free; every once in while there’ll be a subscriber only episode. I doubt this will be much of a problem since you’ll already have four and a half hours of content for the week anyway. It’s got a clean rating on iTunes, but there is pretty explicit sexual talk. And I’m not just saying that because it’s gay sex; I feel like lengthy discussions of anal sex should probably get an Explicit rating on iTunes whether it’s straight or gay. The iTunes archive has the thirty newest episodes. For more than that, check out the official website; I’m not sure if they have the entire archive there or not – I would guess not, given that they’re closing in on 2500 episodes.
What About It
This show is . . . okay. It’s not an annoying or stupid show and Fernos and Felion have some decent chemistry. The show has some not particularly interesting guests sometimes. The topics discussed are sometimes gay-centric, like that time when a drag queen saved a guy by dragging him out of his burning car . . . okay, bad example, because frankly, I’m straight and I’m so glad I heard that story. The show is pretty long; I’m typically ready for it to be over a decent twenty minutes before it is. The show isn’t as funny as the hosts think it is, though I did get a chuckle or two out of every episode and the humor, while often pretty bland, wasn’t ever obnoxious or stupid. It’s a solid enough show. It’s clear that the hosts know what they’re doing in terms of interacting with each other and their guests; they’ve done nearly 2500 episodes, for cryin’ out loud. But it’s not a show that really distinguishes itself in any particular way. Fernos has a decent broadcasting personality, but not a compelling enough one to get me hooked on this one. The biggest sin is its blandness, but that’s a pretty big one in this crowded market.
“Fausto Fernos” is your luchador name.
Avoid Like the Plague If
You think “Fausto Fernos” has indeed sold his soul to the gay devil and will spend eternity in Dante’s inferno.
Best Entry Point
I’d just say get the newest one.
