Plus, Mark and Hal add a new correspondent to the show.

Food, glorious food! There are so many great kinds of cuisine out there, so how do you pick which one is the best? Easy! You have Mark and Hal decide, along with the help of John DiMaggio, Jean Grae, and Judge John Hodgman. Together they survey the culinary landscape, using only the most scientific methods to reach the most logical conclusion.

#87 - Are Ghosts Real?  

For centuries, people have claimed to see, hear, and encounter visitors from the beyond. Lost souls. Ghosts. Are they full of it? Mark and Hal figure it out, from the legendary stories to the scientific methods that today's ghost hunters use to stalk their quarry. Mark and Hal cut through all of it, lending their own paranormal encounters to the mix, to determine once and for all whether ghosts are real.

Mark and Hal will both be on the 2017 JoCo Cruise - a week long celebration of games, comedy, music, and general geekery that sets sail next March. We'll be recording a live We Got This, and there are still cabins available! Just go to the JoCo Cruise website to book today!

#85 - Best Sense with David Rees  

What's that smell? Did you hear that? What a sight to behold! Delicious! That. Feels. AMAZING.

We use all of our senses so much each day and it's tough to separate them from one another. Fortunately for you, tough is our middle name. We recruited writer, TV host, and super smart human David Rees to help us figure out which of our senses is the best one!

#84 - Best Harry Potter Movie  

Welcome to the Wizarding World of Podcasts! Mark (Gryffindor) and Hal (Ravenclaw) travel to Hogwarts, Diagon Alley, the Ministry of Magic and beyond to pick the best Harry Potter film once and for all.

#83 - Best Cheesesteak with Raph Garman  

If you've been listening to the show for a while, you may have intuited that Hal is from Philadelphia and proud of it. One question he's often asked by people is where the best Philly cheesesteak can be found. To get the answer, Mark and Hal tapped a guy who grew up in the same Philly neighborhood as Hal - Hollywood Babble-On's Ralph Garman, who helps school Mark about cheap meats, batteries, and Atty-tood™.

#82 - Best Movie Trilogy With Nathan Fillion  

Three: It's a magic number. The rule of threes. Snap, Crackle, and Pop. Stooges. Little Pigs. French Hens. And films!

There's nothing quite like a well-made film trilogy, and with so many to choose from, people always argue about which is the best of all time.

That argument is about to be settled, thanks to our trilogy of people: Mark, Hal, and special guest Nathan Fillion, who delve into the history of the silver screen and emerge with the gold standard for film trilogies.

#80 - Movies at Home vs At The Theater  

We all love movies. With digital media, streaming services, high tech TVs, and the ability to watch anything, anywhere, and at any time, has the theater-going experience gone stale? Mark and Hal weigh the pros and cons of each before emerging with a final decision for ALL.

#78 - Clean Slate III with Wil Wheaton  

Among the 250+ topics we've received over the last one and a half years, there are always some that don't warrant a full episode. When that happens, Mark and Hal clean the slate with a multi-topic extravaganza. Helping them out this time is actor/nerd icon Wil Wheaton, who waxes poetic on everything from theme park ruffians to the popcorn eating style he shares with Hal.

Going to Dragon Con? So is Hal! Here's where you can find him.

#77 - Best Movie Villain w/ Simon Gotch  

 

Is there good without evil? Are there heroes without villains?

NO. 

That's why you need a REALLY good villain, especially if we're talking about movies. So who is the best movie villain of all-time? It's a tall order, which is why we enlisted the help of our friend: WWE Superstar (and one half of the Vaudevillains) Simon Gotch!

#76 - Fork or Spoon  

We're not savages here, people. We need utensils to properly enjoy a meal. And while it seems like there are utensils for any type of food, there are two that are EVERYWHERE: The spoon, and the fork. Which is the best? We got this.

And NO - IT IS NOT THE SPORK.

#75 - Best Summer Olympics Event  

As the world's greatest athletes descend upon Rio for the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, you'll have countless events to watch. But which of those events is the best? Mark and Hal get to the bottom of the debate as they move with the swiftness of Usain Bolt, the grace of Gabby Douglas, and the precision of whatever Dressage horse won gold in Beijing.

See Hal live in Hollywood on 8/5 for his monthly show Headcan(n)on with Joseph Scrimshaw! Get tickets here.

 

#74 - Best Doctor  

So many people have asked us to do a Best Doctor episode, that we felt we had to oblige. Will your favorite come out on top? Only one way to find out...
