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?

Welcome back to the Rec Room! Every ten episodes, we take a break from recapping the show to talk turkey about the fandom/culture around it (as you would know if you'd been paying attention. This'll be on the quiz).

In this episode, we review two Code Lyoko YouTube gems: the infamous (though possibly to nobody but us) Movie Quote Dub and the review by renowned cringelord Pan Pizza. We're also addressing one of our listeners' questions: if we could reboot the show, what would we do differently?

Also featured: awkwardly trying to remember things from Xiaolin Showdown, Ben plugging yet another adorable fanfic, and finding ways to make the show gayer than it ever was.
