Dawson has a hilarious and true intro for the Aceman who seems to be in high spirits with his own intro for the gang, nice #TopDrop and horrible delivery from BB.

Adam is welcoming the wonderful Matt Atchity making his 9th appearance on the ACS, Adam is complimenting the site as per usual and he’s explaining how he often disagrees with certain review categories and how he uses the site to compare and contrast his own opinion.

Adam is now on a hilarious Frank Stallone riff and he’s trying to explain the misunderstanding Frank had thinking that the award was a negative thing like his own “Razzie”.


Adam is telling the gang about the new television review section of Rotten Tomatoes and he’s mocking his own default opinion that everything automatically sucks and how this might help him navigate TV.

Alison is asking Adam about “Game of Thrones” and he’s explaining he doesn’t need to watch it because of Jimmy Kimmel’s father explaining every episode to him and how much he enjoys that instead of watching.

Adam is citing the “I Claudius” series he watched in its entirety to get some side-boob and he’s using his childhood “eating grubs and eating cactus for sustenance” to his current living situation with a fire pole above a 711.


Adam is saying that he can’t stand watching any shows that make him want to “take a bath” and Matt is citing the 100% score for “Game of Thrones”.

Matt’s being very honest and explaining the new rating system for TV is still in beta, and mentioning some of the other 100% scoring series.

Adam is referencing his earlier point about adjusting your own calibration with the site and he’s now citing “The Blues Brothers” and its low score and comparing that to “Caddyshack” and it’s super inflated score.

Adam is telling the gang about Olga now bringing the tradition of non-familial adults hitting Carolla Children to the next generation.


Adam is explaining that he’s never hit his own kids but was ok with it when Olga told her why, Natalia spit in her face, this flies in the face of Dr. Drew’s rule about only spanking to stop kids from life threatening behavior, ruh roh.

Adam and BB are trying to explain why spitting and dogs are more offensive in Latin cultures and Alison is begging for more details, hilarious “spankatorium” one liner and Adam says Lynette was ok with it too.
