Choose the period clip, because we are back for our third season of new/old Wie is de Mol episodes - and we're going back to 2010's offering in Japan! Over the next nine weeks, our global bondje of gobshites - Logan & Michael - will be recapping and looking back at all that happened in the Land of Samurai, Shogun and the Rising Sun, beginning with the premiere episode and elimination of Loretta.
In this episode - we explain why we picked this season, Logan hands out an award, Michael's unironic favourite is revealed, there is a forgotten WIDM cameo, we adapt a Belgian feature just for Pieter Jan, there is a very recognisable piece of music to fans of British TV, Logan compares WIDM to prison, nobody understands the second challenge, we wonder why everyone laughed at Loretta going home, a small bit of forgiveness is offered and we discuss what the Mole actually did, as well as acknowledging the original subtitler of this season and wondering if the Mole had too many people already on their trail.
Please note: This season is intended on being spoiler-free, so please watch the episodes along with us. As with some of our previous Historical seasons, there is a small spoiler section at the end of the episode - starting at 43:51. Any season we have already covered (WIDM 17-22 and Renaissance; België 4-10) is fair game though. Due to the nature of this episode, there is also a discussion about the ending of WIDM Season 3.
Additional note: Strap in for another very fun season, but also don't forget to tweet Logan first with #HappyBirthdayLogan on Saturday! It's also Michelle's birthday tomorrow but we're far too scared to do anything like this to her!
