At the end of most episodes of Return to the Past, your humble hosts ask themselves this question: are we going to give this episode a perfect ten, or merely a nine point five? This time, however, there's a radical difference of opinion! Are you on #TeamDavidAndMary, or are you on #TeamBen? As is so often the case, your answer probably depends on your feelings toward Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.
Are Aelita's sick grinds pointless, or radical? Is Yumi's dad running around in full samurai regalia badass, or goofy? Is the return of the Ulrich/Yumi/William love triangle and embarrassing cliché, or the very reason we remember these characters so fondly? You be the judge! (And then listen for the correct answer from Mary and David. This episode rules.)
But that's not all! This is another theory-heavy episode! Wanna hear our latest thoughts on the mystery of Jim Morales's past? ...no? Well, crap. That's okay, though. Some internet content isn't for everyone.
