The Drunken Peasants (2014– )
User ReviewsReview this title
It's definitely more engaging than any other podcast I watch as it involves itself into the YouTube community in such a way that sort of ties the community up very well. They often always have people of dissenting opinion on and those are often very enjoyable to watch as almost always both sides are very respectful to each other. I've listened to many other podcasts but this is the only one that I keep going back to.
That being said, I feel like PaulsEgo has somewhat of a drawback. There are moments when he shines, and other moments when all he does is disrupt guests and go on about things no one cares about. But he's been getting better so hopefully it will subside.
It is an unlikely cast that took the reign of what some called "the best show ever", "the stupidest show ever" or "what is that and who are you?" : the eponymous Drunken Peasants Podcast. One must say that they were quite successful at it, receiving distinguished guests such as Gad Saad, Anthony Fontano, and some more controversial ones like Milo Yannopoulos.
So if you like to laugh and think, pour yourself a drink, stuff your pipe with some perfectly legal Pan® tobacco and get ready for some sometimes inane, sometimes brilliant commentary on political sh*t, crazy people videos, and many more subjects.
But to be fair, like I mentioned above, when they do manage to stop acting like children and actually engage in a serious discussion or comment on idiotic videos, the show actually comes close to being entertaining, ironically making them come off as intelligent people, especially Scotty (who, along with Paul are the least obnoxious of the bunch). That's probably the only time they come off as having actual talent. Other than that, the show is mostly garbage. And believe it or not, there was a time where there were less penis jokes and more intelligent conversations. That's the only reason why I'm not giving this 1-star. They even had the self respect to get rid of the crazy craigslist ad segment.
Another thing I can't stand about the show is when they sometimes bring their obnoxious, cringe inducing fans onto the show. Egghead (stupid name, btw) has to be the worst. The straw that broke the camel's back was when they brought his a*s on second time! That's when I unsubscribed. It really says a lot about your show when even your own fans are unbearable.
In conclusion, the show can be good when it wants to be, but the 'humor' kills it. It's a shame because there was a time I actually enjoyed Tj's work. And to an extent, I still do, but not when he's trying to be funny.
