Blaine, Adam, and Donovan are back, and they get off to a rollicking start by taking down the year that almost is in college football, particularly the LSU at Florida game that created more questions than it answered (1:04). From there, it’s a scathing review from two out of three of the crew about ESPN’s flagship GameDay (4:49).
What does the HBO Max and Warner Brothers’ movie announcement for 2021 mean for the common man and the theater business (10:03)? Of course, it would be hard not to talk about the big Disney news from Thursday (18:01) which is a perfect segue into the penultimate episode of this season’s The Mandalorian on Disney Plus (24:07).
As a special Christmas treat, Donovan is new to The Challenge and to hear him tell it, there is a lot of similarities to the MTV staple and the world of comic books, but special guest Natalie Morrow is here to help introduce him to all the lore (27:59).
Lastly, after the break, the guys share their favorite bits of the holiday season (41:02) — come for the recommendations, stay for the classic and personal Christmas story that no one will want to miss (55:08).
