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.

Note: You may notice some audio echo in this episode. I did my best to get rid of it, but if any remains, let me know!

=====

A weird old guy shows up in the factory, and despite the fact that he doesn't appear to eat, sleep, or get out of his cahir, he's totally not a XANA attack, you guys. 

He's here to fix absolutely everything that's ever gone wrong for the Lyoko Warriors, convince Yumi that she has brain cancer, and maliciously ostracize Jeremie from the group (and on his BIRTHDAY, too!). Thankfully, this is one of the episodes where he (Jeremie) gets to be heroic.

We're also the luckiest viewers ever this time because we get to meet The Man, The Myth, The Legend, #1 Best At Dad Michel Belpois. Not a doormat like Jean-Pierre, not passive-aggressive like Yumi's parents, and not a total dick like Ulrich's dad. Just a nice, normal dude who loves his son and wants him to succeed. And call his parents more often.

Who's ready to get heckin' spoopy?

Our second kind-of-but-not-really quasi-Halloween special reveals that ghosts exist in the Code Lyoko universe! I mean, it doesn't make much of a difference, if any at all, but it's there. They canon'd it; they can't un-canon it. Oh and also Sissi's into witchcraft apparently.

This episode is special because it's the only one penned by guest writers Neil Gaiman and Tim Burton! Nah, just kidding, it's just Bruno Merle and Jean-Remi Francois again. But we totally had you going for a second there, didn't we? ...oh, we didn't? Well, shoot. We'll try harder next time.

Join us for ominous Latin chanting, Powerpuff Girls references (an RTTP rarity!), and another awkward attempt to shoehorn Code Lyoko into a popular meme. In other words, the good sh*t that keeps you coming back. Enjoy!

Note: No new episode next week! Ben is on vacation and we decided we wanted to be too. :P Tune in the week after that for Is Anybody Out There!

Good news for rubbernecks: this episode is a slow-motion train wreck, a veritable cavalcade of characters making baffling decisions and generally acting like total dicks. Do we like it anyway? Of course we do, because we're absolute sheep for Code Lyoko. I'm just saying, this time we came awfully close to only liking it ironically.
