Read the Manual & the SMYN Network: The Year in Review

OOPS there’s no full RTM this week. Doba was painfully busy editing Red Carpet, helping with GOTY, and hosting the 24 Hour Cast. So that happened. That all happened. That all happened and it all happened at once.

Instead, take this bit that ended up being WAY too long for the GOTY. It’s RTM and the hosts of the other Network shows talking about their years in music, movies, and games. Think of it as a mini RTM and we’ll see you next cycle with RTM 55.

Episode 54: Moses Was A Dog

This week the hosts are joined by Moses for the first time in over thirty episodes! There they talk about loud noises, rubber bones, tugging ropes, doggy treats and… oh wait, we never talked about any of those things. My bad.

This week’s big topics include scenes that fit with I Need A Hero, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite (SEE BEN I SPELLED IT) and other Christmas music, The Who, Epic Rap Battles of History, Godzilla movies, Doctor Who series 7, Little Match Girl, A Stranger in Need, Dragonball Z, why GT is the worst thing to ever be created in that series ever, the Madoka movie (SPOILER WARNING), the Tatami Galaxy, Ano Hana (SPOILER WARNING), Magical Girls, Clannad, Seinfeld, IndieStatik’s Top 5 Free Indie Games of the Week, Celestial Mechanica, Cubistry, You Must Undo The End, Walker, Roller Coaster Tycoon Deluxe, Fate/Stay Night, Saint’s Row The Third, Hitman: Blood Money, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, Valve developing a console, Shonen Jump’s Project J game, Battlefront 3 was canceled at over 90% done, and Phantom Pain is Metal Gear Solid V.

Well, here we are again guys. As per usual Doba’s angry at something and Ben is Ben. Does that stop them from recording Read the Manual? Nope! Unfortunately!
