Many people don’t know this, but High Five: The Podcast is really a spin-off of a short-run cable access puppet show called Mr. Fivel’s Fingerbang Parade. Given our history, it’s surprising that it has taken J & Q so long to unveil their Top 5 TV Spin-Offs episode, but let us assure you, it was worth the wait. Did you realize that all your favorite shows are actually spin-offs of all your other favorite shows? Probably not, which is why we are going to shove some knowledge in your ear portals. Where does Mork & Mindy rank in the annals of TV spin-off fame? Did AfterMASH make the list (it did not)? Why is everyone always asking us for tossed salad and scrambled eggs? It sounds like a sex thing if you ask us. Find out all these answers and more on this week’s episode!

Aside from the amazingly surprising discussion on TV spin-offs, Q & J take a quick break to spitball some much-needed new spin-off series from our favorite shows and talk about Bea Arthur (our spirit animal). It’s a party and all your favorite people are invited. Luckily you are too, but not your weird cousin Marcus with the animal feet… know why, stop asking us to invite him! You know, all this talk of Marcus got us upset, just listen to the episode and we’ll talk again when your attitude gets adjusted.
