This podcast has gone downhill

DOWNHILL FOR ME PERSONALLY. Naturally the podcast members are becoming caricatures of the persona they’ve been using. Khalaya acts like a “i don’t know anything but I’m a know it all contrarian cutesy person” and Bobby acts like he doesn’t know anything. It’s getting annoying. Bobby and his lies and his caricaturation. This latest episode he says his ticks was so people don’t talk to him when every eps before he said it was so he can seem eccentric and cool. The episode with Whitney Cummings he says he doesn’t know what fiber is and khalyla being a know it all and you can see the annoyment on Whitney’s face lol. Idk I was a day 1 but they really have becomes such caricatures it’s annoying. There’s no authenticity anymore. Also it was bound to happen every podcast personality becomes caricatures but I guess I don’t like the personality they’ve chosen lol

Wow this turned around lol

U/Select_chapter5003 said it best “all the shows in the new house are like Howard Stern episodes without Artie... occasionally there's a good one, but it's not the same as it was in the apartment. when they were still doing the patreon, video blogs, and had random friends and family on, it was a completely unique thing, now it's just like every other "when did you get started in comedy?" interview podcast”

Just watch bad friends, where people still try.

Soprano’s is a masterpiece, but i don’t think season 30 of it would’ve been. Podcast need to take a cue from TV and have an end

I agree. Although I think Rudy should just leave. It’s not cute anymore, and she doesn’t seem to care. Juicy is a WAY better fit.

Bad friends has become kind of a rambling mess imo, they’re funny but they need to make segments and skits etc, an organization to it. These two pods are great at first but get repetitive and it’s hard to pay attention when you can telling Bobby doesn’t know much about anything. I’ve been watching h3 pod and it’s refreshing to se them not just wing episodes and the sound bites and cohosts are top tier

u/FascinDaWorld Aug 18 '22

Are you fr ? Bad friends is a rambling mess, but H3 is a better podcast because of the sound bites, and co-hosts ? What a take holy shit

u/Top-Ad7144 Aug 18 '22

Yeah it’s better than early onset Alzheimer’s Bobby Lee making fake bullshit stories and repeating the same stories over and over from from when he peaked years ago. He literally has no idea of anything going on in the world

8

u/Nostalgic4life Aug 18 '22

H3 is fcing garbage! lolol No one wants anything to do with Ethan. There are so many better podcasts out there then H3......it's just a liberal echo chamber podcast.

3

u/FascinDaWorld Aug 18 '22

Look Ethans okay, I watch his podcast-lmao if you dont like his politics idk, because every podcast is an echo chamber okay ? But to say H3 podcasts are like the creme of the crop when we have actual professional comedians trying to joke around-its just not the same.

I had to stop watching this around the time they were pretending to be sea turtles (?) and used several episodes after that as some weird acting class that sucked. Has it gotten any better?

u/SteveHarveybeats Aug 18 '22

It’s gotten a little bit better since they added doc and jet ski

u/sizebzebi Aug 22 '22

Doc is funny, juicy is boring

u/somethingpunny2 Aug 18 '22

Do you like doc as an addition? I tried to get into him but I feel sometimes it is punching down a bit. He’s got alcohol issues, and everyone around him knows he isn’t that bright, but they humor him. It feels icky to me. Predatory maybe? Idk. I like Jessie a lot. She’s quick and while she’s in her thirties, she has a youthfulness that works with the hosts.

u/GabrielSal Aug 18 '22

I concur, i don’t listen as much as i used to and was also a day one, episode 1- 100 were the golden days for me

1

u/kmdani Aug 24 '22

Some of the episodes, like when Bisping was there, or Jo Koy, or Erik Griffin, i still rewatch sometimes. I even enjoyed the first Bert Kreischer episode. But since the desk is gone, the confrontational voice is gone, and the new house and new image is there, it’s just regular promotional nonsense usually.

u/savvyxxl Aug 18 '22

I’m a firm believer that removing the table in middle has really fucked up the energy. Bobby sitting across from people at a table had such chaotic fun energy

u/DefZeppelin99 Aug 17 '22

Just take a break. Listen to anything over and over again especially an hour and a half podcast of just 2 peoples personalities and you’re going to get tired of it

u/Objective_Fill7779 Aug 18 '22

Great advice, I take breaks from different pods all the time bc it does get annoying or repetitive. Don’t gotta cry on Reddit. Just change the material

u/FearlessFreak69 Aug 19 '22

I took about a month off. I came back and it’s just not as good as it once was. The spark is gone. Probably should pack it up while they can and move on. This podcast is starting to get embarrassing.

7

u/RandomAsianGuy Aug 18 '22

Exactly, Bobby has been appearing a shit ton of other podcast as guest but I haven't listened at all since I have overflow of Bobby.

Switch it up with podcast like Dudesy or Mark Normand and Shane Gillis stuff

u/KinshasaPR Aug 18 '22

While they've had a couple of good to great episodes here and there, it's just never been the same since they did the podcast out of the old apartment with the table lol

I've been listening for several years now and I feel ya. I stopped watching because as a comedy fan, I can 'somewhat' tell when comedians are putting effort into being witty, and I just don't feel an effort from the crew. At least on TigerBelly

u/Bingohead Aug 18 '22

The only good thing about tigerbelly was how real and honest it was the whole Bapa incident took both of those elements away from the podcast especially when we reflect on Hawaii and Mexico and what we can see really happened and what they told us was happening. Which is 100% their right to handle that but we are also allowed to be bored when we see the lies from people we admired for their honesty. If they don’t want to do a couples podcast that’s brutally honest they need to figure out a new angle quick

u/kmdani Aug 18 '22

A lot of people blame K because of the downhill, but I think it is just one thing: their authenticity came from being honest, reacting honestly (or at least seemingly), and really important, they had nothing to loose. Bobby’s career was nowhere. Since they moved, the pod is paying for everything, and because of it’s success bobby’s career is back on track. I think Bobby is very clever, and lazy (as most of us), and know, he can get away with being edgy and cutesy for Tigerbelly, spare his energy for Bad friends where acts confrontational while andrew shouts. That’s it. He doesn’t need to be honest, or show part of him that is meaningful. I think it is like an author after wrote a successful novel, and do whatever. There is no pressure, no need for authenticity, he can get away with he thinks others think him funny/entertaining.

7

u/IanWestart1 Aug 18 '22

Exactly. This is the best description for what’s been going on. The honesty is gone. They’ve been going through the motions for a while now.

25

u/FuserAlpha Aug 17 '22

I agree. I also feel like Bobby may be putting in less effort on tigerbelly. This is after listening to the last month of bad friends and thinking, wow, they have been so funny. Tigerbelly has been mostly chill, with carrere being a great guest. But not as funny of a show over all with Bobby not shining as he does in Bad Friends. Just my opinion not a Khalyla hater.

23

u/Bubbly-Percentage466 Aug 18 '22

I mean he has to carry tigerbelly on his own. And that was fine for years. If he doesn't have a good guest, it's tough. On Bad friends Santino does a good job with the back and forth.

13

u/517drew Aug 18 '22

Khalyla said like 2 sentences for the first 10 minutes and then finally got into it when Bobby whipped out his butthole. He’s def trying to carry it.

10

u/No_Weird_7280 Aug 18 '22

Yeah this latest episode made it clear to me that Bobby is carrying this entire pod on his back to support his friends and his ex. Not baggin on him, that’s a good thing to do but I’ll be listening to BF instead

I mean.. nothing stays the same forever. It's like your favorite band changing.. or you change and don't like the music anymore.. your free to not listen but you can always go back to the throwback days that you enjoyed right? Idk.. its free content so if the new stuff annoys you then it's time to explore other new novel things that you can enjoy.

It's a very common, annoying in my opinion, response when people give any sort of grievance about a show they watch. They dont need to type in all caps to warrant a "chill out". Although I might agree in this case moving on, at least for a while, would be best.

Don't take this the wrong way, but looking at your account, maybe you should find other forms of entertainment for yourself. You sound way to invested in celebrities lives tbh.

u/Positive-Pin3712 Aug 18 '22

Agreed. If you’ve seen Bobby as a guest or on Bad Friends he’s so much better and way more entertaining. I usually give pods a break so I don’t get tired of them but there’s something else going on here I honestly don’t think it lasts much longer. The only podcasts I still listen to weekly are Burr’s MMP,Your Moms House and a couple barstool podcasts.

u/BoardwithAnailinit84 Aug 18 '22

I’ve noticed that Bobby can’t stand for the spotlight to not be on him. Ethan was trying to talk to Khalyla about her ketamine experience and Bobby kept trying to make it seem like Ethan was doing something on purpose. Every single episode becomes a therapy session for Bobby and most times barely even asks his guests any questions. I think he’s hilarious but Bad Friends is much better cause Santino doesn’t really allow that to happen too often, or he’ll switch up the conversation.

u/BibaruBuraku Aug 17 '22

The point is you don't like the show. Khalyla is 50% of it and always will be. All you're doing is walking into a place for fans of something and proclaiming that you hate it. What do you expect the response to be? Oh cool thanks for letting us know. No, we're going to tell you to fuck off.

I really tend to dislike when people give this response for media in general because it kinda misses the intention of the post. I'm not going to speak for op but I've noticed with these types of posts they are usually saying they don't want to "want" to stop watching, they have invested so much time in it already and like the people who are creating it, but there is a shift and it could be headed in a negative direction. They don't want to abandon it the second it goes south, they want to give fair criticisms and opinions and for them to be heard so it can keep improving and stay away from downhill paths. And it's super important for every community to have that

u/Green585 28d ago

Bobby and Khalyla are forever

they should never have broken up... they need synergy instead of working like two different minds ... Bobby needs to lay slept king pipe and control his girl. Shes a winner and gorgeous but has unresolved problems too. It shouldnt be a matter of isolation between them... they need to work together and be a team 50.50 and understand that they both have quirks and ups and downs... but together they are a perfect pair. She is a little wild, but nobody really cared... Bobby is wild too and nobody cares. You have to understand and accept people for who they are, from the things they've come from. Even Gil and George have a backstory that made them who they are today. Shaud, D'elia, Santino, Erik, Jade, Stee-bee, Bobbys father etc ... they are all great but their story develops their sense of being. You have to understand where people are coming from to forgive and synergize with them... even if you dont fully. Khalyla is a catch and amazing. She is honest and open about who she is, its no secret.
