After 5 months of vacation – the Oh’s Knows Bros are back! They haven’t talked since the last podcast, and quickly get caught up and back to the nitty gritty. The lucky numbers today? 207, 75 and 33.. 207 days until Adam’s marathon, 75 days until the ACL Festival and 33 days until the Iowa Hawkeyes kick off football season! They also talk about LeBron’s decision TO RETURN HOME and play a round of “Who, Who Are You?”
Oh’s Knows #22 Part One // Shout Out To Life (1-23-14)
There’s no mention of Jerry Jones this week. We look back at some of our favorite sports memories of the year, including a few we attended – mainly the ones we didn’t attend. As well as recall the ACL Music Festival and talk about some of our favorite blog posts we made since our start back in September – like the “The Greatest Roast of All-Time” that still makes us laugh to this day! Hope everyone has a happy, happy, happy new year!
Adam’s favorite sports memory of 2013 was Auburn’s win in the Iron Bowl. Also, was 50 years late but had a blast watching the original Batman with Adam West – crowning it the greatest movie of all time.
Nick’s favorite sports memory of 2013 was Ray Allen’s 3 pointer that send the Heat to overtime to beat the Spurs in the NBA Finals. Also, thoroughly enjoyed seeing Noah and The Whale at the ACL Music Festival.

It’s a spook-tastic episode. It wasn’t Halloween themed, but after a long weekend and a day of recovery – the Oh’s Knows brothers talk about almost everything under the sun. They open up talking about Fantasy Football as they were both in a heated matchup against fellow league family members. While watching the Patriots roll up the Steelers, they also recap the Hawk’s second half woes, the Dallas Cowboys and Adam tries to rewrite the playoffs for professional sports. It doesn’t go well. They also talk about watching classic 80’s movies and go over their favorite Disney movies of all-time!
Adam continues to mis-manage his Fantasy Football team and is the reason why Tom Brady had a huge week, because he benched him. You’re welcome Patriots fans. Also, would have to say A Goofy Movie is his all-time favorite Disney movie.
Nick has the highest scoring week out of anybody, and still almost loses. Also, just watched the The Great Mouse Detective – so he’d have to say it is his favorite Disney movie of all-time. But sometimes he gets confused on the difference between Disney and Pixar movies.

Hiatus: a gap or interruption in space, time, or continuity; a break.
The other night, as I tucked my dog into bed at 1:30am and started to fire up Netflix to watch as much of a Parks and Recreation episode I had already seen for as long as possible, I decided to check the twitter and see if there was anything worthwhile going on that I needed to know before I dreamt away.
I came across a tweet from a girl I may or may not know that read:
“BRING BACK PARKS AND RECREATION. #thisisanoutrage http://www.vulture.com/2013/10/nbc-has-quietly-put-parks-and-recreation-on-hiatus.html”
I immediately clicked the link and began to read. Cry. Yell and want to know more.
For those of you who didn’t read the article. It goes a little something like this.. Cliff notes version.
Basically – Parks and Rec would immediately put on hiatus. Due to terrible NBC shows be cancelled, no more The Office and people for some reason enjoying The Voice, Parks and Rec would be put on hold.
Over the next few months to close out the year, there may – if we’re lucky, be a total of 4 new episodes of Parks and Rec. Devastation. If you are familiar with the show Community, you know how this feels.
Basically the moral of the story, according to Josef Adalian and Vulture who put out this article, NBC isn’t thrilled with the numbers Parks and Rec is bringing in and would really like people to try and watch Michael J. Fox’s show (fair) and that gay guy from Will and Grace’s new show (eh).
For those loyal fans like myself, who have loved Parks and Rec from day one – like me, you probably through your laptop on the ground, burned down your apartment and went on a drinking and drug fueled rampage around town.
Not all of that happened. But you know what I’m getting at.
Smash cut to the morning when the same person I was trying to start an online #SaveParksAndRec petition at 3am recommended I take a look at a few nice things the wonderful Adam Scott recently tweeted.
So Parks and Rec isn’t on hiatus?
Technically. Wait – what does hiatus mean again?
Hiatus: a gap or interruption in space, time, or continuity; a break.
Technically. Parks and Rec is on a hiatus. There will be a few gaps between now and the next new episodes, and then another gap before new episodes, with one more gap between new episodes.
Next airing of Parks and Recreation, will be on November 14th. And we get two. Win.
But after that it is going to be some time. Again, after learning what the word hiatus actually means I learned a few things.
- I won’t be getting my fix of new Parks and Rec before the new year.
- This is exactly what happened last year, which sounds right – but I can’t remember because I have slept since then.
- Don’t compare shows to Community, because they got the ultimate ring around the rosey by NBC.
Moral of the story?
- Don’t believe everything you read on the internet.
- Don’t overact immediately to things you read on the internet.
- Probably not a good idea to aggressively tweet at NBC in the middle of the night after a few heavy beers about how bad they are at making decisions. And picking shows. NBC isn’t putting Parks and Recreation on a hiatus because it isn’t doing well, or because it’s going to get cancelled. It’s because they are not smart.
I get a little defensive about my television shows. Especially this one, which seems to not get the due it needs. It has a good following, maybe not a huge one, but a good one.
As I re-watch season 4 while I write this, it is important to know that while NBC plays reruns of Cee-Lo Green slipping girls drugs.. I mean The Voice, you can watch Parks and Recreation all day every day on repeat via Netflix.
Or listen to Nick Offerman do a podcast or two on the Nerdist. You won’t be disappointed. He’s got a new book out too. Fantastic.
Or watch Aubrey Plaza in Safety Not Guaranteed.
Or watch old SNL skits with Amy Poehler.
Or catch one of Aziz’s stand-up routines.
What I am trying to say is that is isn’t the end of the world peeps. I thought it was. But it was late. And I was drunk.
This happened before, we made it out alive, and we can do it again. I am now taking a hiatus.

Adam and Nick are back and open up the show talking about the NFL – the Colts won and the Cowboys disappoint, again. They then briefly talk NASCAR and the Budweiser bath that happened today as well as the rough weekend that took place for the Iowa Hawkeyes. They then play a game of “Should he stay or should he go?” including Kirk Ferentz, Jon Gruden and Miley Cyrus. They then wrap up the show looking ahead to the ACL Music Festival in 5 days by giving you their Top 5 bands they are most looking forward to seeing!
Nick is most looking forward to seeing “Noah and the Whale” come ACL Music Festival this coming weekend. Also can’t remember who Bear Bryant is, moved to 3-3 on the season predicting the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Adam is most looking forward to seeing “Grimes” come ACL Music Festival in 5 days. Also couldn’t remember the New England Patriots head coach’s name (it’s Bill Belichick obviously), moved to 6-0 on the season predicting the Iowa Hawkeyes. EXPERT!
Stay tuned next weekend as we give you a day by day recap from ACL Festival full of drunken ramblings, singings and plenty of pictures!
I just finished another episode of Breaking Bad. Just cranking through these episodes as fast as I can. I’m ashamed to admit how many episodes I have watched in the past few days, but it happened. Just like the Holocaust.
I can’t be the only person who watches an unhealthy amount of Breaking Bad on NetFlix. Please don’t ruin anything for me. I haven’t come to the series finale yet, hiding from Twitter and human interaction as much as possible to avoid spoilers – I’ve heard a lot of people throw around things like, “Greatest Show Ever.”
I’d already have to agree.
Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld.
Game of Thrones. The Office. Entourage. Just to name a few.
And this could be argued for days. Some people may even be throwing their hands up in the air by me even mentioning a few of those shows. I haven’t even seen Game of Thrones or The Wire – so get off my back. I have seen Entourage, and I don’t think it’s the greatest show of all time, or probably shouldn’t even be mentioned with the others. But Entourage does have one of the greatest TV characters of all-time. And so does Breaking Bad.
This is where things get awkward.
“Better Call Saul!”
Saul Goodman cracks me up every time I watch Breaking Bad no matter how many junkies die or cartel members get shot. Bob Odenkirk is brilliant. Then I got to thinking – who else is a great lawyer on a great TV show? That’s right! Ari Gold. Let’s write something comparing lawyers, like who’s the better lawyer on TV. Is it Saul Goodman, “Criminal Lawyer” or is it Ari Gold, “Hollywood Lawyer”? That would be..
Ut oh. Then I remembered Ari Gold isn’t a lawyer. He is a super agent. Damnit. That’s not gonna work.
Or is it?
I did some digging. Ah ha!
J.D./M.B.A.? Sounds promising. I got a B.A. What could this be?
I am a stud. I didn’t read all that mumbo jumbo – but he’s basically a lawyer. Yeah he doesn’t play one on TV, but he has a law degree. And that’s all I need to compare the two.
So without further ado, if you’ve stayed with us thus far. The showdown of the TV lawyers. Saul Goodman vs. Ari Gold.
Although Ari Gold has a larger body of work, and definitely has a way with a few choice words, Saul Goodman’s clip is short and sweet. He brings humor, although it may be dark humor to a very dark TV show. Ari Gold takes it to the next level. Over the top level. Sometimes necessary, always inappropriately funny.
Bob Odenkirk is a genius. Longtime SNL writer Conan contributor and just the best touch of funny that a show like Breaking Bad needs at the right moments. Remember – this was a show I couldn’t watch before going to bed a few weeks ago.
Jeremy Piven is great. A long time Hollywood douche bag who a lot of people don’t really like. I don’t mind the guy – I mean I after all did graduate from the University of Drake, something even he couldn’t pull of. Ari doesn’t seem like much of a stretch for Piven.
Either way, both are lawyers – I proved that. Both are hysterical, both would be great to sit down with at a bar and even better to help you get out of the clink, if need be. And both will ultimately go down as some of the funniest SOB’s in television history.
Unless the Better Call Saul spinoff is an absolute piece of garbage.
Then I will destroy ever last proof that this post ever existed, Walter White style.
