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?

This episode contains practically zero teen drama and is all about the lasers and kicking, so you'd think it's pretty bad, right? Actually, not so! There's a wee smidge of Flanderization, but that aside, it makes us care about the nuts and bolts of Code Lyoko's plot - a rare feat indeed.

Also, Ben tells us about the Horse Hole. What is it? Mary and David were hoping you could tell us. Additional topics of discussion include: male nipples (feat. a lengthy digression about the movie Time Bandits), cheese poops, incomprehensible Gen-Z memery, and sock enspidering.

In this, the """"lost"""" episode, it turns out XANA is much more powerful than any of us ever imagined, what with his cybernetic spiders and his robot army and his growing brains (I swear, guys, this is a thing that happens). Unfortunately, this revelation doesn't get nearly as much attention as a frankly unengaging attempt to convince us that a forgotten birthday is enough to make Yumi hate Ulrich forever. 

Meanwhile, in 'Murica, Mary and David exercise their own brand of all-encompassing power by engineering a way to talk about cloacas again. Marvel as David opens his Valentine's Day present live on the air, as well! (I mean, you can't see it, but you ASMR enthusiasts may be tickled silly by our paper-crinkling action.)

Season four keeps the hits coming with a rather touching episode about Yumi and Hiroki's fraught relationship - even if it does involve them all being very dumb in very entertaining ways. It also introduces William's snazzy new ship, the Rorqual, which looks like a Navskid with a Dib ahoge on it. Needless to say, it's pretty rad.

And speaking of sea life, Mary's quest to convince David to love isopods continues, Ben and David share their favorite anecdotes about incorrect usage of the word 'pimp,' and the 'Group announces their cool new domain name! You won't believe which mythical creature it's themed after.

We like this episode because Clone William is in it for about ten seconds, and also (thanks to some MoonScoop intern mailing the wrong model sheets to Vietnam, we presume) because the characters all wear their S1-3 outfits for one last, glorious time. But you know what? It's a pretty good episode regardless! This Francois Deon guy knows what he's doing. It's a pity he never wrote another one.

We also talk about Kingdom Hearts some more, give Florida the drubbing it deserves, and Mary makes some inroads into getting David to love isopods. Honestly, if you want any more than that, you're just being greedy. Give us your click already.
