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.

You said you wanted plot? Well, here's some plot! Here's all the plot! Here's three seasons' worth of plot, all in twenty-two minutes! Eat it up, little piggies! There's one and a half episodes left and we are limping right the hell to that barn!

If you, like many an OG Code Lyoko fan, wonder when and how the show would resolve the plot threads pertaining to Xana, William, and Clone William, the answers are 'right now' and 'poorly.' Join Mary, David, and Ben as they press F for the sweetest fake boy in the world. And also talk about insect sex. (Yeah, we know what you're really here for.)

Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or many duck-sized horses? These and other brain busters will be grappled with on this episode of Return to the Past, as our very tired hosts do whatever it takes to avoid recapping yet another clunker. At least this one has spooky Soviet experiments in it. Just in time for Stranger Things season 3.

This episode of Return to the Past carries a content warning for descriptions of gore/viscera at 44:30.

It's been over ninety episodes of this Lyoko crap. How about we pivot to Evangelion instead? That's hot and trendy again, right? And, really, is there anything more fun than listening to young white people share their brave yet controversial opinions about anime? Join us for ten minutes of that, followed by a long groan of an episode of a far inferior thing that isn't even a real anime.

Also featured: Ben pokes gentle fun at his goofball of a stepfather and makes lascivious comments about cartoon characters again, David tells the surprising but true story of the time some jackass filed a complaint with his employer because of a disagreement about Rick and Morty, and Mary laughs for 40 seconds straight at a dancing Ukranian man.

Also, we'll need your help for two upcoming projects! We'd like to assemble a "clip show" of show moments for Echoes, and a collection of listener messages (written or recorded, your choice) for our final season break/postmortem. If you would like to contribute to either, please let us know at rttppodcast@gmail.com !

This Code Lyoko episode carries a content warning for jokes about and imagery reminiscent of suicide. This episode of Return to the Past carries a content warning for discussion of this scene starting at 1:22:00.
