    Alternate Title: "KHAAAAAAAAAAN (2.0)"
    • Tonight's special co-host was Otto the Autopilot, filling in for the illin' McHatin.
    • Tonight's beverage: Labatt's Ice.
    • A recap of interesting things from the first day of the Google I/O conference, including the ability to upload your own EPUBs to Play Books and the new Play Music All Access service.
    • The new cloud storage service which is the anti-Dropbox in that they give you 15GB for FREE, but you can get 20GB with this link! You're welcome!
    • EA drops Online Access passes.
    • Miley Cyrus tops the Maxim Hot 100. Dafuq? The actual attractiveness of previous winners is batted about. Dirk's comments on previous Maxim winners:

      2012 - Bar Refaeli - SI Swimbo and Leo ex. Meh. Attractive but bland. Give me #3 Mila Kunis and #4 Katy Perry, please.

      2011 - Rosie Huntington Whiteley - Hot, but not my type. Olivia Munn was #2? Man, that fake nerd thing really lofted her up. #3 was Katy Perry again.

      2010 - Katy Perry - Alrightee then.

      2009 - Olivia Wilde - Absolutely correct choice!

      2008 - Marisa Miller - Another swimbo. Not my type.

      2007 - Lindsay Lohan?!? - That was three years after Mean Girls when she was at her peak hawtness. As PopSugar said, "The year LL finally turned 21 and could legally drink in the states, she was in and out of rehab three times, racking up the DUIs." That's not hot. That 17-year-old cherry bomb in Mean Girls was hot; in 2007 it was starting to be clear she was a loss.

      2005 & 2006 - Eva Longoria - Hella hot, but her increasing insistence on being Queen La Raza makes her ugly.

      2004 - Jessica Simpson, or as I call her, "That waste of a great pair of tits."

      2003 - Christina Aguilera - She must have been thin then. She's had her moments; now she looks like Miss Piggy. 5-foot-tall girls can't pack on 30 pounds, mmmkay?

      2002 - Jennifer Garner - Really? She's always struck me as a sorta cuteish girl, but the only time she looked hot to me was when she was dressed in rubber as a spy hooker on Alias.

      2001 - Jessica Alba - Yep.

      2000 - Estella Warren - Was Planet of the Apes that much of a boost for her? I see the appeal, but times were different judging from the runners-up. It's always amusing to see chicks you've long forgotten enjoying their 15 minutes.
    • Angelina Jolie's decision to have pre-emptive breast surgery and everyone's reaction to it.
    • The guy who lost his life savings trying to win an Xbox Kinnect and only won a Rasta Banana.

    • Star Trek Into Darkness and the big secret about who Benedict Cumberbatch is revealed along with what the story is basically a remake of, so [SPOILER ALERT]. Dirk's review.
    • Panic or Pain drop by to talk up their upcoming show and play the Deep Thoughts Musicians Quiz game.

    Alternate Titles: "Set Controls For the Heart of the...Whoops!" or "Beer: Making Men Brave Since Forever"
    • We were self-engineering the show so if you can hear anything, you're welcome. 
    • Tonight's adult beverage: Third Shift beer.
    • Our anticipation for Iron Man 3- which we were going to check out after the show - and the controversy about the special Chinese edition kicks things off.
    • McHatin's aversion to watching the TV version of Game of Thrones is revisited and we discuss the past couple of episodes. The odd modesty of Gwendoline Christie - who looks like this off and on the clock....

      ...steers us into a discussion of the looks of women in Sweden and Italy.
    • If Game Of Thrones took place entirely on Facebook: Season 3, Episode 5.
    • Oh, hey...Iron Man 3 discussion. The demands for a Chinese actor to play the Mandarin leads to a discussion of how superhero movies are cast and a history lesson for how the first Iron Man movie was cast.

    • Proper movie theater etiquette and a comparison of 2nd-run movie houses.
    • Mila Kunis being named FHM's Sexiest Woman leads seamlessly to the death of one of the Kriss Kross guys (no, it didn't cause it!) and how he should be buried and a unique burial method McHatin say online.
    • Spec Ops: The Line and how games have DLC and tacked-on multi-player leads to a long digression about modern shooter games.

    • Dirk's lukewarm opinion of G.I. Joe: Retaliation prompts waaaaay too much blather.

      ...leads into a discussion of Guillermo Del Toro's career and whether Pan's Labyrinth was misleadingly advertised.
    • Dirk starts explaining why people should watch Orphan Black but this will have to be finished next week because he managed to steer off the road and never made it back. Sigh...
    • TV shows that make mid-season course corrections like this season's Supernatural.
    • McHatin's heresy against Star Trek is cause for consternation. 
    • The Blu-ray set referenced in the discussion of The Player:

    • The date of Ice Cube's "good day" was determined to be January 20, 1992 according to this.
