Episode 299 – The Premiere

The Rose’s visit and count the number of remaining episodes with a look of concern.

Put on your best skinny jeans and roll out the merlot rug, it’s time for the premiere of The Crowening, and all the heavy hitters of Schitt’s Creek (heavy Schitters?) are making their debuts. While Alexis & Moira deal with that, Stevie struggles with her decision to return to the motel business, and David struggles with a very high and freshly de-toothed Patrick. For me this is one of the more memorable episodes, so come listen to it be ruined by us blathering over the top of it.

Episode 298 – Maid of Honour

Moira sporting headwear from the King Buzzo Collection. Magnificent.

It’s Schitt time again folks, and this week’s is a hoot. Moira is very excited about the release of a trailer for her upcoming feature Crows 3: The Crowening, however not all of her friends share her elation. Also Johnny and Roland have to figure out why a guy at their new motel has a sack of money and a gun. They, of course, take him at his word when he says everything is totally fine and normal. Lastly there has been a mixup as to who will be David’s Maid of Honour, so Alexis and Stevie need to work out the details of their duties. What a romp! And what a rump on that Chris Elliot, am I right? Meow! What? The write up is still recording? Edit the rump stuff out, please.

Episode 297 – The Job Interview

Your reaction when you saw that COTW was late this week.

Oh hello, I didn’t see you there. Welcome to Creek of the Week Inc. Come on in and have a seat. Looking over your resume I see you have extensive experience in the field of “having amazing taste in podcasts”, good good. I also see that you’ve listed your biggest weakness as “only leaves 5 star itunes reviews once a month instead of once a week”. I think we can work with that. Honestly you seem perfect for the job, so you’re hired! Wages start at one podcast per week (two if you are interested in overtime at our other department, Johnny Mnminute) and of course, all the twitter posts you can consume. Welcome aboard!

Nice Job Eric, another stellar bit. SNL will be calling any day now.

Episode 296 – The Incident

Patrick showing off his new Dune stillsuit PJs. TOPICAL CAPTION!

Ya ever pee the bed as an adult? Sound off in the comments, then tune in to see if your hosts have. One person we know has definitely peed the bed is David Rose, and that is the main story in this episode. Concurrently we have Alexis handling the burgeoning social media presence of her mother, then our two stories collide as Moira livestreams a conversation about David’s previous “incidents”. Also, Johnny and Stevie go to look at a new motel to purchase, with Roland in tow, but end up attending a funeral instead. Hijinks galore!

Episode 295 – Smoke Signals

I don’t have a good caption for this except to point out how exceptional that necklace/amulet thing is.

This week’s episode is an interesting one. Our extended pre-show banter recounts a harrowing, and often objectively hilarious tale, of the events of the previous week for one of your beloved hosts. That undersells it, but I’m trying to keep spoilers out of the episode description so you’ll just have to listen. Afterward we watch the season 6 premier of Schitt’s Creek, in which David & Patrick look for a wedding venue while Moira recovers from her breakdown.

Episode 294 – Life Is A Cabaret

Name a more iconic power trio.

The season 5 finale is here and they’re goin out singing. Much of this finale is taken up by musical numbers. They are fine. The rest of it is mainly dominated by stormclouds raining all over David’s parade as he tries to make a dramatic engagement announcement. Also, Alexis is dealing with the fallout of missing all the fun upcoming events while she is in the Galapagos, and Johnny is feeling particularly emotional to his two burgeoning spawn. Season finale’s are always a good time around here so join us, won’t you?

Episode 293 – The Hike

Jokes aside, it is a testament to the writing and performances on this show that such a touching scene can be created with a character wearing that sweater.

Well this week’s episode sure is a doozy. Important stuff goes down in this one, as well as some less-important stuff. First of all, Johnny starts to feel uncomfortable while doing some manual labor, and for a moment everyone thinks he might die. Spoiler alert: He doesn’t. Next Alexis realizes there might be more to her Galapagos “vacation” than she expects. Finally Patrick asks David along for a hike where he has something special planned, and everything goes wrong. Get your tissues out and get ready to have your tears jerked, because some emotional Schitt is going down.

Episode 292 – The Roast

Moira, thank you for your concern, but we are fine and we have a new episode ready right now.

Hey kiddos, Sorry for the brief hiatus, but we are back with another banger. This week’s episode of Schitt’s Creek doesn’t have a lot of drama but makes up for it in laughs, as it is, in this host’s humble opinion, one of the funnier episodes of the season. Johnny has to fill in for Moira at the roast of the town mayor, and it turns out he’s not very good at it. Naturally he enlists help of the townies to give him some tips. Patrick and Stevie have a dark secret they desperately want to keep from Moira, and Alexis learns that her beloved has been accepted to study in the Galapagos.

Episode 291 – Meet The Parents

This is also my family’s reaction when politics is brought up at the holidays.

This week’s Schitt’s Creek starts with the revelation that David is throwing the one and only surprise party of his life for his BF Patrick, and has secretly invited his lover’s parents to the soiree. This inadvertently puts Johnny in a, wait for it, awkward position, when he accidentally outs Patrick to his parents who were unaware of he and David’s relationship. Meanwhile, Moira and Alexis attend a soap opera convention and learn that serious bank can be made for feet pics.

Episode 290 – Roadkill

Ted’s “I’m about to have sex” face is not as sexy as we might have hoped.

This week is all about dead animals and sex in public spaces, my two favorite things. While headed out of town for a spa-retreat, Johnny and Moira accidentally plow over a cat. Then, for some reason, they hunt down the owners of the cat, and once again for an unknown purpose, sit around that person’s house all day until finally, for reasons nobody can guess, they give away their spa package to the family that is obviously taking advantage of them. Meanwhile David and Stevie are hawking foot creams at the local flea market, while Alexis watches the store, and Ted watched dat azzzzzz. Then they bone.
