Return to the Past: A Code Lyoko Retrospective

Remember Code Lyoko? That show with the foreheads? The one you used to half-watch while you waited for Teen Titans to come on? The RTTP crew remembers. Join Mary, Ben, and David as we discuss this dorky, cheesy, weirdly touching, occasionally brilliant, underrated relic of early noughties kid culture. Bring your skateboard, y’hear?

Apologies for the less-than-great audio from Mary and David in this episode, but we were recording in THE SAME ROOM which was a great arrangement for all parties concerned.

Log Book - an episode that David rightfully remembered as great and Mary and Ben were taken to task on. On today's show we tackle the big questions: How much character development can one show fit into a Speed homage? What the heck were the ONE pair of street names we had to remember for our Americanization goof? What does Ben REALLY think of Odd/Aelita? How do electric cars work?

In this episode, Ulrich, Jim, and Sissi are trapped in a closet as a toxic fog spreads rapidly throughout the school. Coincidentally, a fog also spreads rapidly through Mary, Ben, and David's skulls as they try to think of something, anything, remarkable to say about this utterly unremarkable Code Lyoko episode.

Only two episodes in and already there's singing and dancing (ball's in your court, Joss Whedon). Join the RTTP crew as we discuss underrated vegetables, fail to identify French public safety workers, and react to unexpected emotions we thought we'd never feel again - all right here in Seeing is Believing!

In Code Lyoko's debut episode, an evil computer demon turns a teddy bear into a kaiju. What could be more relatable to our audience of millennial tweens? Check out OUR debut episode for all the context the series itself utterly fails to provide! And yes, it's spelled "Teddygozilla." No D.

Despite what we said in this episode, we do have a Twitter! Follow us at @rttppodcast.
