From its roots in the ’60s to the best modern interpretations of the form, the only rule here is that each episode fills at least one full side of an LP and contains plenty of pretentious solos.

Jeremy Parish, Stuart Gipp, and Todd Ciolek talk about BMs. But no! This is not a scatological episode. Well, no more than usual, anyway.

It's been 11 years since the last proper Monkey Island entry, and more than three decades since series creator Ron Gilbert left Guybrush and company in the hands of others.
