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? Follow us on Twitter at @rttppodcast, or send us your feedback at rttppodcast@gmail.com! Cover art by Ingram. Find more of their work at http://www.ingramcomix.com or @ingramcomix. Intro and outro is "XANA Rhapsody" by Matt of Avana Music! Find more of Matt's work at https://soundcloud.com/avanamusic.

HEY YOU GUYS! We're missing Ben this week, as he had some circumstances beyond his control come up. So it's just Mary and David in this one, here to keep you on the up and up and make out a WHOLE bunch! 

This week, with their sexy new money, the Code Lyoko crew has gone and built us a brand-new sector. I hope you like blue rectangles! We also get schooled on the Tunic - pardon me, PUNIC Wars, finally hear Franz Hopper's name spoken aloud, forget things about the episode we REALLY should have remembered, and do our level best to protect Aelita from all the bullies ever.

AT LAST, SEASON 2 IS UPON US! 

We're so excited to bring this to you AND so excited to talk about all the new stuff that this episode introduces. New intros and outros! Vehicles on Lyoko! Aelita (Stones) as a full-time student! New monsters! Scary wolf visions! A bearded man with opaque glasses playing childrens' tunes on a hallucination-piano! Sweet flips on Lyoko! 

And of course DAT BOI, William Dunbar! Although you could view this entire episode as the Abstract Concept of Dat Boi, given how much here come. (Anyway, William's a creep and we dissect this thoroughly.)

We're also excited because this is another episode where two of us are in the same room! Mary and Ben, to be exact! Featuring special guest hosts Mike, who sat in a chair nearby sleeping the entire time, and Ike, who was under the bed, terrified of us. (They are both cats.)

Have you ever found yourself thinking, 'Gee, Return to the Past sure is a swell podcast, but there's entirely too much of that pesky Code Lyoko?' You're in luck! For our season one afterparty, we're talking about everything but!

Well, that's not entirely true. We are going over our episode rankings and pass a final verdict on season one. Did your favorite Lyoko adventure make the top five? Tune in to find out!

Also featured: extended musings on a couple of our other fandoms. Expect a deluge of nerdy terminology you thought you'd never hear again (the word 'classpect' is prominently featured. You are advised against taking a shot when you hear it.).

We're also launching our Patreon today! For a one-dollar monthly subscription, you'll have access to a host of new goodies and features too shiny for the proletariat masses. Click here for the full scoop. We'd like to argue about cartoons full time someday, so your patronage is definitely appreciated.
