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?

Is this Code Lyoko's first real clunker? Mary and Ben say yes, David says maybe. Join us as we meet famed American film director James Finson (we know he's American because he's fat) and discuss Freudian interpretations of slimy alien drool. Oh, and there's also some more nonsense about Bruce Willis.

Please note that Return to the Past no longer has a "Clean" rating. Still gonna bleep out swears though. It's like a middle ground.

In this episode, XANA completely blindsides the entire Lyoko Gang by attempting to impersonate a human being and doing remarkably poor work of it, despite completely fooling the group up until the very last moment. But then, why does he drive an emotional wedge in the group in the first place, when he could do so many more destructive things? Is XANA a cold and calculating being, always trying new plans when the old ones don't work, or is he angry and vengeful, forever trying to hurt the Warriors? Or is he just a dumb computer program? The answer unfortunately is that it's really inconsistent and we just don't know. 

Anyway, here's Image Problem, the episode where a Yumi clone tries to get her mack on with Jeremie and also some other stuff happens! (And it's the first writing credit for Mary's personal hero for this series, Bruno Regeste.) We'd also like to welcome you to our auxiliary podcast-within-a-podcast, Return to the Gotta Blast - An Adventures of Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius Retrospective.

At long last, the first truly great episode of Code Lyoko arrives! (Unfortunately, this episode of RTTP is no less terrible than the rest.) THRILL as Jeremie and Aelita exchange G-rated double entendres! GAPE as David cracks up Ben and Mary with jokes that would get groans in a kindergarten classroom! BEHOLD as we barrel down weird tangents about juggalos!

Caution: contains awkward references to the capital-P Problematic late seventies sitcom Diff'rent Strokes.

What does XANA have in common with Skynet (well, other than the ridiculously obvious, we mean)? What do Ben's nipples have in common with Smash Mouth's hit single, All-Star? And which of our humble hosts has the cutest dimples? Tune in to episode five to find out!
