For the second-last time, The Lowdown hit the airwaves of London, Ontario. It was another summer themed episode as the boys spent most of the episode talking about cars and driving. The episode started with a look at some of the best driving songs ever made. They follow this up with a pair of news stories about a teacher in a goth band (which degenerates into a discussion about drunken debauchery) and a soccer player who got carded for dropping dead. In entertainment, Jackie’s got an all-NBC single of the week while It Came From YouTube has a superstar cover of Don’t Stop Believing. After the break is the return of the Car Wall with four different types of cars are added. The show is capped off with the return of Oddsmakers. It’s a crammed 28 minutes that ranks among our best episodes of the season.
On Lowdown Extra, there’s another song for the greatest driving songs list, another car for the Car Wall and a motorsports question added to Oddsmakers. The cuts of the greatest driving songs are longer. Two more stories make the news including one about cars. The Worst of Music returns to the original intro but has a new band called 3Oh!3 picking up the award. After the break in the Extra, the boys (mostly Steve) go off the deep end as they breakdown a review of the show sent to Steve by a radio station that the radio show is syndicated to. The boys pick apart everything from the lack of logic of the reviewer to the grammar of the review. Basically, they reviewed the review and had a laugh doing so. In all, this week’s Extra is a whopping 105 minutes. That’s nearly two hours of continuous Lowdown insanity. As always, the action is uncut and extremely uncensored.
