I'm not really a podcast person, but I went to their site. Am I reading things correctly? Those episodes are SIX HOURS each?

It varies, but yeah that's not unusual for them.

I don't follow any other wrestling podcasts because it's all I can do just to try desperately to catch up on their catalog.

I really, really liked MITB 2011. I just don't think I could listen to people talk about it for nine hours.

They did around 30 hours on the Montreal Screwjob, just counting from the start of the Wrestling with Shadows episode until the end of Survivor Series '97.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I very rarely find an episode I don't enjoy from TLF but I found Part 1 of MitB to be fairly meh. Part 2 made up for it. Especially the first hour of it. JP's calls of epic matches is also a hugely underrated part of TLF. He's good at that.

To be fair to Jack and JP, I found it meh because it wasn't as funny as many episodes but it sure had a bunch of tidbits in there that I hadn't known about Punk/Vince/Contract/Aftermath of MitB which are very interesting.

I remember enjoying the MITB '11 ep. Been a while since the one time I listened to it.

That all sounds great, but I don't feel like there's enough hours in the day for that stuff.

(I say this realizing that I'm probably a top 20 volume poster in three different forums on this site.)

Consume them over many days. You'll catch up eventually. I recommend anything heavy on Nash, World War III, Soiled Out 99, Souled Out 97, or Rumble 95

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Well,
1. It's not like there's a limit to the number of times you can press pause and play.
2. Listening is not an activity where you can only do that and nothing else.

I listen to it during my morning routine. I listen to it while making and eating breakfast and dinner. I listen to it while doing other mundane household stuff. Sometimes while commuting, though I tend to listen to music then.

I have not listened to all of their episodes, and I've been listening for nearly three years, with at least a little bit of listening more days than not.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

Yeah, that's how I do it too-- while I'm doing household stuff, go for a walk, cooking, car rides, as I fall asleep, while I play old video games.

Like they said, it's not like you have to completely concentrate on it.

I used to have a job where I listened to hours of podcasts every day (data entry), and TLF's giant episode run times were a savior.

I feel like we should give him the real Lapsed treatment, and talk about the pain that will ensue

God how I hate this running joke on the show.

I did think that perhaps I should have offered the disclaimer to eyebooger or anyone else who might be interested that some of their running inside jokes are just brutally unfunny, though obviously I'm still endorsing the show in spite of that.

I canít seem to enjoy TLF. Something about the 2 hosts that just annoy the hell out of me. I enjoy Something to Wrestle and The Masked Man Show though.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

I think that's fair-- they can be very very annoying, and super not-funny at times.

Now Iím inclined to agree if you are talking about when Jack and JP do it, but the emails and Patreon comments sent in by listeners are ducking fantastic

I also agree with this to a point, especially with their earlier stuff, but the funny stuff more than makes up for it in my eyes

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

There was one e-mail with a variation on that joke that made me laugh pretty hard, but most of the time I'm rolling my eyes.

I realize that I'm a tough critic when it comes to...well, all things, but humor among them.

Re: **WWE Raw/Smackdown Viewing Thread**

And again, like I said, while I'm willing to be very critical - Jack's maniacal hyena laugh is the ****ing WORST - obviously I'm still a fan. "No sacred cows" has to apply to them too after all.

As a side note, I was pretty astounded that the Vader tribute show devolved quite as hard as it did into them being really negative and critical about certain aspects of Vader. Totally fair criticisms and very much on-brand with their brutal honesty, but it was just jarring in the context of a tribute show.
