Join us and a rowdy crowd of wild Texans from our live show at the ACL Live at the Moody Theater as we discuss What's-A Christmas to Me, Modern Day Knights and the art of arranging old, old meats and cheeses on slabs of ancient wood.

The fettuccine prestige was fucking amazing.

What do y'all suppose the big news is going to be? Another season of TV on VRV maybe?

That's my guess/hope.

What I can't understand is, where was Baby Griffin getting the raw pasta at OG? Do they have raw pasta on display in the lobby or something?

IIRC, they have jars of dried pasta artfully arranged, which is kind of an '80s decorating touch but still works. I guess that must have been what they tricked Griffin into eating. Man, that made me wheeze.

Straight up spat a blueberry across the kitchen when I realized the Olive Garden pasta bit was actually Griffin finding out his brothers are assholes.

Also I LOVE that question asker's murder game!

It looks like this was the big announcement.

Considering most of us were probably hoping for MBMBAM Season 2, this feels a bit underwhelming ...BUT THEN AGAIN THERE'S A NEW MONSTER FACTORY EPISODE AND I'M SO HAPPY!!

ALSO, they make it sound like there will be more Monster Factories after this!

Something I am enjoying about MBMBaM, at the moment, is how Travis has picked up certain comic mannerisms (particularly at the ends of phrases) from Courtney Enlow, which occasionally manifest themselves on other shows (although I think never on Trends Like These, which I have found much more compelling since they added her to the team).

I would imagine that Vox Media is extremely eager for more Monster Factories, given the natural dip in views that Polygon video has experienced in the post-McElroy era, without their popularity driving people to the channel.

I hope Monster Factory drives more views to the Polygon channel as a whole because there is some amazing content being produced there.

Maybe the real announcement was like a subtle way of saying "We figured out a way to partner with Vox to produce video content on our own terms, and also they threw in this website". Which, is a pretty great announcement.
