This week, we take a...hopefully discerning...look into the British musical horror comedy web series, "Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared." Technically, this is just season 1, which only takes about 35 minutes to watch six episodes, and somehow this led to our 2nd-longest podcast episode ever.

- What were the co-hosts' general feelings about this web series. Which one(s) found it at least entertaining, if not meaningful; and which one(s) found it frustratingly nonsensical & pointless? Can you guess which Geek was which?

- What exactly were the motivations behind the makers of this web series? How much do the Geeks agree and/or disagree on those motivations?

- One Geek referred to at least part of the project as cohesive & having meaning. Which Geek was the first to grunt at such a notion?

- What was the significance of June 19th in the web series?

- What was the main redeeming quality that one critical Geek gave the web series?

- Did the Geeks feel the series had any successful horror or comedy elements?

- What was the explanation behind the title of the series, and did it make any sense to the other Geeks?

- What one-time scoring system did one Geek come up with specifically for this web series?

- How did this review lead to references to Star Trek, Pink Floyd, urine, Shakespeare, Bluey, N.C. State basketball, Lost, philosophers Plato & Diogenes, a BBC show called "Ghost Watch," the movie "Dead Poets Society," and Elon University's one-month winter terms?

Listen now for the answers to these and other cryptic questions as we try...with varied success...to make sense of..."Don't Hug Me, I'm Scared" (season 1).
